PSP's Father Is Tight-Lipped About NGP

Sony revealed a new portable yesterday, codenamed the Next Generation Portable. In the audience were pundits, press, developers and the former Sony brass who built their gaming empire.

Ken Kutaragi spearheaded the creation of the PlayStation, the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation 3. He's also the father of the PSP, the PlayStation Portable.

The story is too old to be commented.

Bring back Ken Kuturagi, Father of the PlayStation!

I'm sure he is proud of the NGP, he would be proud his PS division still makes top quality and high tech products.

I miss that man! He had a vision for the future tech! Kaz is more like a finance type of guy.

while i love ken
but i think him being a way is a great thing to all of us

don't get me wrong i'd love it if he is back
but now since kaz is in command he wants to make consoles that are developer friendly just like we saw with the NGP so far

ken is more possessed with power more than anything else which is not a bad thing but it lead to high prices and whiny developers with shitty ports

i like what kaz is doing so im cool with that

Considering he wasn't involved in the development, not sure what he could tell you.

I would like to hear his wacky comments none-the-less.

“The PS3 is not a game machine “

“Beating us for a short moment is like accidentally winning a point from a Shihan (Karate master), and Microsoft is still not a black belt. Just like with their operating systems, they might come out with something good around the third generation of their release.”

“I believe we made the most beautiful thing in the world. Nobody would criticize a renowned architect’s blueprint that the position of a gate is wrong. It’s the same as that.”

“Microsoft shoots for the moon. Sony shoots for the sun.”

"This time, Microsoft has stated clearly that it is going after PlayStation. However, they're going not after the PlayStation 3, but the PlayStation 2. They were looking at 2, and that's why Xbox 360 became like that."

“With the PS3, our intentions have been to create a machine with supercomputer calculation capabilities for home entertainment.”

PS3 is “for consumers to think to themselves ‘I will work more hours to buy one’. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else.”

“The PS3 will instill discipline in our children and adults alike. Everyone will know discipline.”

“Microsoft is trailing behind us, but they are not a threat. They are good at improving [on products], but we will be advancing to the next level with revolutionary technology.”

“We’re not going to equip the PS3 with a HDD by default, because no matter how much capacity we put in it, it won’t be enough.”


Ohh, Ken we miss your genius words of wisdom!!!
