With regard to The Last Guardian, Layden said that “it’s a fantastic story, it’s a typical Ueda game, I think it’s going to find a lot of love.”
As per his regards for No Man’s Sky instead he has placed emphasis on the controversial Sean Murray: “I think Hello Games, Sean Murray and his team, had an incredible vision on what they were going to create. Something never done before. And a very small team had a very huge. ambition. Now, they’re still working at it. They’re still updating it. They’re trying to get it closer to what their vision was. I played a lot when it came out. Unfortunately, Hello Games has not been able to achieve what he wanted on the first try, it happens. ”
Finally, the president of SIEA also talked about PlayStation 4 Pro:”PlayStation 4 Pro is the manifestation of our desire to continue to innovate a platform even between generations. We were able to create a system that support all PS4 content, as you know, and going forward, but it would allow more horsepower under the hood, it would provide a one terabyte drive, it would allow developers to perhaps increase frame rates or increase resolutions. It really is for people that perhaps want a bit more horsepower under the hood, who perhaps have made investments in 4K televisions, or HDR supporting TVs, and want to have that as well.”
