Yoshida Comment On Low Review Scores of PS4 Titles, “Lot of Games, So Media Might Have Rush Through”


Almost all Playstation 4 launch titles received low review scores from big gaming publication, and this has not pleased Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment.

Shuhei YoshidaIn a recent interview to GI, Yoshida talked in detail about why he his disappointed by low review scores of Playstation 4 launch titles.

Yoshida was asked: “PS4 software reviews so far have been average or in some cases, worse than average. As the head of Worldwide Studios, what’s your reaction to this? Are you worried about the impact on PS4?”

To this Yoshida replied: “Yeah, it’s disappointing to see some of the low scores. I haven’t spent enough time reading reviews, but I would characterize them as mixed. And with this launch there are lots of games coming out, so the media must be very busy going through the games quickly, and especially since the online functionality wasn’t ready until in the last couple days.”

“So we have to look at how much time they spend on what aspect of the games and how that may be contributing to some of the lower scores. It’s disappointing but I don’t think it’s worrisome for the launch of the system. I’ve played through all of our games, Killzone, Knack and Resogun, and I totally enjoyed playing through these games. I’m now on my second run of Knack and Resogun at a higher difficulty – these games really grow on you when you play more. I’m very confident that once you purchase these games and play, you’ll be happy that you’ve done so. “

November 15 is fast approaching, i am dying to get my hands on my PS4 pre-order which will arrive tomorrow, and only then will able to tell you how good or bad PS4 launch games are.
