Some Neat Drawings from Shuhei Yoshida's Miiverse Profile

Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5385 posts) -
Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment Incorporated and one of my favorite people in the industry, posted on his Twitter yesterday that he got a Wii U. Of course, this confused (and even angered) some of his followers as to why someone who works for Sony (and in such a powerful position) would buy a Nintendo console. Before responding to those people, however, he posted up his Nintendo Network ID so people could send him friend requests in order to test out the Miiverse's Activity Feed. Though friending him is now disabled, anyone interested in following him can do so by searching for ShuYoshida. The only message from Yoshida currently is a drawing he posted on the Nintendo Land Community board, which his many followers decided to add to by drawing some things of their own. Here are some of my favorites!:







This one's my favorite.

It's certainly one of the more fun ways for people to request games be made.

Shu's my favorite guy in the industry to follow.

I remember when Jon Rubenstein was the CEO of Palm and said that he'd never used or touched an iOS device since he left Apple. Then the company went under months later. Makes you think.

Aw, that's actually pretty cool. Keep calming the ire, Shu.

The mario and sackboy drawing was worth this alone. Thanks for sharing.

Also If you don't at least try your competitions product, you're doing it wrong. Good on him on even being public about it, makes seem actually human.

The cool thing about Yoshida is how involved he actually is. He plays games, makes his own Sound Shapes levels, and he frequently replies to people who send him messages on Twitter. It's rare for someone in his position to take the time out to do stuff like that.

The Mario/Sackboy crossover is the cutest thing I've seen all week.
