Sony Japan CEO on what PlayStation has in store for Japan
This week’s Dengeki PlayStation magazine has a lengthy interview with SCE Japan CEO Hiroshi Kawano, giving us a glimpse of what the company has in store for its home territory.
Andriasang’s collected some information from a leaked copy of the magazine, which’ll hit stores later this week.
Here’s the list of information which has leaked out -
- Wonderbook, one of Sony’s main E3 announcements, will be released in Japan.
- There will be more Hatsune Miku-related announcements (Sony and Sega have already announced plans for a Miku-themed PlayStation Vita – the first themed Vita hardware).
- Japanese PlayStation owners have complained that the Japanese PlayStation Plus program is low key, so Sony created an internal team to come up with programs to make members happy. The PS+ program will see improvements some time this fiscal year.
- The next Game Heaven event will be an actual event that you’ll want to tune into from start to finish, and not just the sudden release of information like the first Game Heaven. Outside of just new information, Sony will partner up with companies to share development secrets and get deep into the heart of games – things that users would want.
