Fantastic interview. I wonder if Microsoft will allow something like this at their launch. Probably not.

Really great interview. Sony is really throwing the Vita under the bus aren't they?

Whoa, you guys are starting to get more legit talking with Shuhei and all. What is happening to this place?

What are you talking about? Jeff has been one of the most respected people in game's media for over a decade. I doubt many people would deny him an interview or access based on the site's "cred" so to speak.

And all of a sudden Brad said words.

Gotta love Yosp though, chill guy.

Excellent! So genuine.

@ll_exile_ll: I know, I'm just playing on the fact that they always downplay everything about this establishment. As well as generally Yoshida doesn't normally or isn't expected to do short informal interviews like this.

I can't really disconnect my PS3 until PS4 has a DLNA client. Good to know they're on the case.

I love Shu!!!

I like Shuhei but I don't believe him or anyone involved with PS4 OS stuff, that the exclusion of MP3 support wasn't intentional, even the manner of how the news was announced was kinda pointing at it

"We don't support MP3 files... but don't worry. We got ya... You give us a bit of money... and we'll give you all this music for a year... that sound cool? We're doing you a real solid here so be a bit more grateful "

(I'm paraphrasing obviously)

I kinda wish some journalists were a bit more on the consumer side of it and at least acknowledge it's a bit weird and push a little more of questions.

Funny you mention that. I started listening to a bombcast yesterday and was expecting the NDX theme to start playing but couldn't recall where that theme was from and why I expected it to play. Man, I miss NDX.

I'm curious on what you're using for a DLNA client. I just found out about Plex. Using for my DVD collection and it's awesome.

I didn't get that tone at all from his answer but whatever.

Has a Seinfeld intro feel but without the hot bass slap.

O_o

Why would he reveal information that the company isn't ready to reveal or comment on just because someone he doesn't really even know asked about it?

he wouldn't, which is why he didn't.

they asked, because it's their job to ask.

I love the music. I think it's the best music on the site since the WUTANG theme.

What it immediately reminded me of is the Sanford & Son theme, which is totally perfect.

croud gaming? CROUD gaming?! The future is bright for Engrish.

any Japanese guy who throws the word 'parallel' into an American interview has all the balls.

Dumptruck theme is best theme.

It still weirds me out seeing his name mentioned so much now. Kotaku posted a lengthy interview with his early about "the list" too.

Love Shu.

Absolutely love that IGN had to cite "Giant Bomb's Interview Dumptruck" as a source for the CD thing.

Edited by crithon

Dear god, he seems HUMAN! Wow, but serious really cool getting a guy that high of level to just chat and kid around. Excellent work, it feels comfortable and normal. His english is good.

Great interview. Yoshida seems pretty laid back for such a significant executive. I'm excited for the Kojima and Boyes interviews, too.

Posted by FesteringNeon

Great questions and answers. I'm glad to see some honesty in the business, and a much more humbled approach.

Posted by ChalkCharmer

Wow, I've never heard Shuhei speak before. He's very well spoken and truly sounds humble and kind.

Posted by GERALTITUDE

Good interview, kinda strange this was the serious one and ign was the casual one.

Posted by heatDrive88

@geraltitude: Haha, I think that's what the Adam Boyes interview is for.

Edited by mattoncybertron

Yoshida-san seems ridiculously nice despite how high up he is, awesome interview guys, thanks!

Edited by fetchfox

Insightful and interesting, great work guys.

Imagine how much more sterile, on-message, and bloodless this would have been with a Microsoft person.
