Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida gave a shout out to TellTale in discussing the PlayStation 4′s support for new business models.
“Episodic has been talked about for a long time and most people are skeptical until [they] play The Walking Dead. Now we are big fans of episodic gaming. We’re believers now,” he said.
“Hats off to [the] Telltale guys, they proved it works.”
TellTale’s The Walking Dead was a critical and commercial smash, and nabbed a plethora of awards.
“I’d be happy to see some of our games adopt that model in the future,” Yoshida said when asked whether Sony might pursue the format itself.
