Ken Kutaragi Working On Something “Totally Cool”

Is it ps4?

The featured story in the November 21st issue of Bloomberg Businessweek is titled: “What Is Sony Now?” In it, editors Bryan Gruley and Cliff Edwards take a long look at Sony’s successful past and not-so-stable future, with interviews ranging from Sir Howard Stringer to lower level Sony employees. It’s a very interesting read and you should go grab the magazine, especially when Sony Computer Entertainment, which consists of all things PlayStation was discussed.

The men called PSone the “bastard child” of a failed Sony/Nintendo collaboration, one that only came to fruition because Ken Kutaragi, a then Sony engineer pushed the firm’s execs to launch the console. The successes of both the original PlayStation and PlayStation 2 were noted, and thereafter the sloppy launch of PS3, releasing a year after Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and the infamous quote from Kutaragi, saying “the next generation doesn’t start until we say it does.”

The editors reached out to Ken Kutaragi for comments to be included in their featured piece, and that’s when he told them that he’s working on something “totally cool”, but wouldn’t comment further, adding “many of the Sony old boys would be better to speak to.”

What could it possibly be? Did Sony allow back in the old boss who made PlayStation? That’s far fetched but whatever it is, he’s got my attention.

    father ken would not go back after they treated him with his departure.
    whole reason why $ony has gone down the crapper is exactly because of his departure!
    he may of been extremely arrogant, hell “next generation does not start till we say it does” has to be about the most arrogant thing ive ever heard anyone say!
    but he sure knew what the fans wanted, and how to properly guide a company!

    Nope, that guy has cost Sony A LOT of money with this kind of arrogance. A LOT. He is the reason PS3 released a year later than Xbox 360. The reason it cost $600 at launch….

    thats what they needed though, any lower and it would of been a lesser system which would of hurt them allot more in the long run.
    only reason $ony did not get gobbled up is because they have always pushed the boundaries, and then broken them with everything they have released.
    to do any less with the ps3, to have a cheaper system would of only hurt them more!
