The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu features a new interview with Sony Computer Entertainment Japan president Hiroshi Kawno.
A few excerpts have been posted online, in which Kawano discusses the new PS Vita model, PlayStation 4’s popularity in Japan, the competition, and teases an unannounced PlayStation 4 game.
Find the excerpts below.
The new Vita model has shown a 10 to 20 percent increase with women.
It’s also increased [in popularity] with young people.
After the western release of PlayStation 4, Japanese PlayStation 4 camera bundle reservations have increased.
It would be a lie if I said we weren’t conscious of the competition with other platforms. But that isn’t everything, and what’s important is that the industry is growing and expanding, and is a fun area to work in.
After PS4 is released, we’re planning to be constantly putting out software.
There is also a title we haven’t been able to announce yet. From here, we are considering how to announce it. Please look forward to it.
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
