Yoshida “happy” to see Sony games go episodic

Monday, 25th February 2013 03:14 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida gave a shout out to TellTale in discussing the PlayStation 4′s support for new business models.

Speaking to Polygon, Yoshida commented on Sony’s avowal to support non-traditional models like free-to-play and episodic release with its new console during the PlayStation 4 reveal.

“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.

    Episodic releases for inFamous after the Second Son will be a great idea.

    More methods are always good. But I will wait for all of them to release and then play sequentially at once, just like I did with Walking Dead.

    I’d like to see planetside 2 on PS4 as a f2p title. PS3 will work too
