"We are developing a free-to-play type of game*, but we haven't announced it yet," said Yoshida. "We don't have any subscription-based games in development, but we are not crossing out any type of game."
*Depending on when this interview was conducted, that free-to-play game may or may not be Doki-Doki Universe
, one of the indie games announced for PS3/PS4/PSV today.
"We have the same level of strong commitment [as we did with PS3] to continue to produce first-party titles."
"We believe in a good balance [between new IPS and existing franchises], continuing with some of the franchises while at the same time trying out new IPs and new ideas... Both are of great importance."
"Did we consider it [always-online]? No, we didn't consider it. The main reason being that many countries don't have robust internet connections. It m akes sense for people to have internet connections to play online games, but for offline games there are many countries that we saw do not really have robust internet... We didn't even consider that [always-online]."
