Wow, right out of the gate here, online passes going completely away is pretty big.

Edited by mrsmiley

Wow... a high level businessman making logical sense in a personal 1 on 1 interview? Amazing. I love what he says right out of the gate about doing away with online passes. If you already have to pay to play a game online, why would you need to pay more to play specific games online?

Edited by CaLe

Right away he comes across as a genuinely nice guy. Looking forward to listening to all of this.

The audio is confusing me because it makes it sounds like people are talking behind me, one in my back left ear and the other in my back right ear. STOP TALKING BEHIND MY BACK, KLEPEK!

Sony got me back.

Posted by Voysa_Reezun

Some people are kinda down on Sony charging for online multiplayer, but millions of people have paid a monthly fee to play WoW, so this doesn't seem crazy to me. I have paid for Xbox Live since 2003 or whenever it came out, however, so maybe my perspective on this is different.

Patrick, you conduct some of the best interviews in the business. Keep it up.

Edited by PXAbstraction

This allayed a lot of my concerns with today's statement from Jack Tretton on DRM. This was a killer interview Patrick, well done!

Edited by Rustafur

How long have these recordings been in Stereo? Pretty cool. Quality content from Patrick, as usual. Tons of good information for someone like me, who's not owned a console since the PS One.

This was a great interview, Patrick. BEEP BEEP!

This is a great interview, Patrick. Props for Sony, too. This is incredibly straight up and honest. No bullshit.

Yeah, that was easily the craziest thing out of this interview. Perhaps that's part of what pushed EA to scrap the program.

What a great interview.

Whoever is pulling the strings at Sony is doing a damn good job right now. It goes such a long way just to be socially aware of the desires of your fanbase; it's crazy how much of that is being ignored by MS right now.

I really hope this can last. Hearing that takedown at the end of the Sony conference was highly cathartic after the months of dismissive attitude MS has given us.

great interview, excellent work patrick

Edited by Kung_Fu_Viking

Good interview although one thing I want to do with regards to self-publishing is how/if Sony will be curating that. Obviously you would have to be a registered Sony developer to get the devkits and SDKs, but will they be doing an extra level of Valve-style curation?

Posted by dropabombonit

Great interview. Sony are so clear with their messaging which is the opposite of MS

Posted by zoozilla

Nice interview, despite some awkward pauses (I assume Patrick was going through the questions).

Good to hear that "common sense" informs much of Sony's decision-making.

Edited by RVonE

It genuinely surprised me how straight this guy is and it was really great to hear their willingness to get back to Patrick on the more difficult questions. Here's to hoping they follow through on that.

Posted by danlongman

Great interview, Thanks for asking my question about Camera cost!

It was great to see how open they are.

Edited by Colt45

Hell of an interview, Patrick.

Posted by HellknightLeon

Yeah! Awesome Beep beep. Man... they are so happy with last night. xD

Edited by golguin

Sounds like Sony finally has their head on straight.

Great interview and questions, Patrick. That was informative.

I love this bold new Sony. The anonymous hack bitch slapped them into greatness.

E3 Hype Train! Oh wait... E3 Hype Truck!! Great interview Patrick. BEEP BEEP

Posted by Pullarius_Capax

@rustafur: I believe since Patrick has started recording with a proper recorder (with 2 microphoses) instead of his iphone.

Askin them hard hitting questions. Questions of favorite color decide the console war.

Well at one point Sony asked themselves what was more profitable, a 400$ console + the online fee, or a 500$ console with free online.

Edited by amlabella

Fantastic interview Patrick. And Scott Rhodes seem like a really cool and genuine dude.

Edited by deerokus

This guy comes across really well. As if he's an actual human being or something. A big contrast with creepy non-human corporate suits like Mattrick.

Posted by ZHabermann

I don't have a twitter account but the main question I have is, on the digital side, retail game releases on the PSN in EU are usually outrageously higher then they should be, I can and expect to buy games for £40 through retail, yet I've seen games ranging from £48-60+. This maybe is done more by third party publishers, but basically what I want to know is will Sony recognise the issue and try and curb publishers to post more reasonable prices?

Great interview!

Fantastic content, as the big shots say at E3.

No, the work on what came to be this began in 2007 after they realized how bad Ken Kutaragi's peyote visions had screwed them over with the PS3.

Edited by poik007

Pretty good interview! Good job patrick :D

Edited by Cammy

Cool interview, keep the dump truck rolling Patrick. Lots of questions I had myself, and maybe still do, the price of that GDDR5 ram is still in the back of my head (how much of a loss are they selling this thing at?) None the less, Rohde sounds like a cool dude.

Flip your headphones around? Switch left ear and right hear? Stand upside down? Listen while in a NASA centrifuge?

Great interview, very honest! Congrats Patrick!
