Sony has proven itself over the course of the PS3's lifecycle that it's not afraid to try something different and target different markets.

ModNation Racers, LittleBigPlanet, MAG and the likes of Journey or Tokyo Jungle on the PSN Store are all names that - while not huge sellers like Uncharted - show that Sony is willing to try new things.

This will remain for the PS4, it seems, with Sony's Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida claiming in an interview in the latest issue of Edge that not all games will be targeted at FPS players.

When asked about why the importance of the PS4 reveal's first game being decidely cutesy game Knack, Yoshida said "Yeah, it was pretty intentional.

"Mark's idea was like, "What about a Crash Bandicoot for PS4?" When he suggested the concept of Knack, we were like, "Yeah, we hate to see all the PS4 games being FPS or action-adventure or very photorealistic" - you know, big-budget blockbuster games."

Yoshida added, "We know that people like these games, but these are not the only kinds of games that people can have fun with."

We're glad to see Sony isn't losing that sense of inventiveness with the PS4 then.

FPS is relatively easy to do. You don't need much AI, sound, etc loaded at once so you don't have as much to worry about with memory limitations and whatnot.

Since PS4 doesn't have memory limitations it'll be interesting to see what happens...though I don't expect to see anything amazing overnight.

Guess it is nice to have confirmation they plan on sticking to the same approach they did with the PS3, but I never had any real fear that would not be the case.

Not sure if you are serious, but that is one of the definitions of it, yes.
  • When speaking of the genre of video games, it is First Person Shooters.
  • it is also used to refer to Frames Per Second for video games as well.

Sony should make more RPGs. PS2 had a lot of good ones. Not everyone likes FPS.

FPS is probably my least favourite genre No, actually that would probably be sports sims, but anyway, I am glad to see this.

In my experience FPS seems to attract the worst kind of gamers: either young kids whose mother/father have chucked them a console so they can go out and treat the machine like a baby sitter or borderline psychotic bigots.

Sometimes they are one in the same :|

What I want from next gen games and consoles...though I'll be gaming on PC.

* New Elder Scrolls (3 to 4 years from now)
* Dishonored 2 (somewhat confirmed with PS4)
* BioShock prequel (the fall of Rapture)
* Crysis 4 (Lets' see what CryTek can do with their engine)
* DOOM 4 (last chance for id software to stay in the game. This will either make or break them for good.)

This statement by Sony seems like a captain obvious statement. probably more of a "drip" comment to keep the hype from dying off.

I'd go for all of those, though another Crysis would REALLY have to step it up as far as the writing team goes (for me to purchase anyways).
