Yoshida: Sony Gearing Up For "Family-Friendly" Christmas

Sony won't be dropping any huge big-hitters this Christmas, according to Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, instead focusing on "family-friendly" material. If you were hoping to play the likes of God of War: Ascension, The Last of Us, Beyond: Twin Souls, or The Last Guardian in between stuffing your faces with turkey and getting drunk before noon, prepare for disappointment.

“We’d love to have multi-million sellers for the holiday. But each title needs time to develop,” Yoshida said, chatting to GameInformer. 

“Especially new IP like The Last of Us. God of War has always come out in March, so that’s a natural time to aim at.”

Superbot’s PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will make it in time for some Boxing Day virtual punchups, but otherwise Yoshida is hoping to complement the efforts of Sony's third-party associates.

“Our strategy for Christmas is to go big on family-friendly titles. This is a neglected genre for the PlayStation 3, but as it matures, I think it’s really important to have these games on the platform,” Yoshida added.

“I think we have a great lineup this holiday to complement third parties’ big core games.” [GamingEverything]
