PS4 makes Suda 51 'horny'

Grasshopper boss excited about working on Sony's new console

Goichi 'Suda51' Suda has said Sony's PS4 reveal has got him feeling "horny".

Writing in his regular Famitsu column (translated by Edge), the Grasshopper Manufacture CEO said: "I'm thrilled that we can welcome the PS4 at the end of this year.

"As has been announced, Grasshopper Manufacture will make games for PS4, as will (parent company) GungHo Online Entertainment and (sister company) Acquire. I can't go into detail at this stage, but for sure the new challenge is exciting.

"During PlayStation Meeting 2013, Sony showed such a strong vision. Now we have to decide how to find our own victories within that and present games that express the Grasshopper world. And that makes me horny."

Suda also said he's excited about PS4's cloud gaming features. "I think that in the future, cloud delivery will become totally commonplace. Social networking has certainly done that. To be able to play anywhere, on any device, with shared data - this will be an alluring new feature for games.

"You'll have your own personal profile or ID that you can access from many different devices and enjoy your game from anywhere, in various different ways. That this play style will become a reality is futuristic enough. But in addition, cloud saving becoming standard practice is an evolution in itself. It will add new value and will surely result in new ways to play.

"Thinking about the future of this stuff and then constructing and outputting something appealing is our job as game designers, and from that challenge we can take new strength. And that makes me horny."

Sony revealed the PS4 last month and confirmed a PS4 release date of "holiday 2013" in at least one of Japan, Europe and the US.

God of War: Ascension developers from SCE Santa Monica recently told us that PS4 ticks all the right boxes and will enable the studio to revisit technically demanding ideas it previously had to shy away from.
