Katsuhiro Harada “very happy to think about” One Unified Console
Chief Producer and Director of the Tekken series, Katsuhiro Harada has come out with some cracking quotes in a recent interview.
While speaking with News.au, Harada spoke about the changing games market and the power shifting in favour of the consumer:
For a long time, the game industry has been able to control the way people play games. There was a platform that people used solely for their gaming needs, and the industry had control of the trends and such that occurred.
People are able to not be tied down by consoles. It doesn’t stop with phones, we have browser gaming and all these different platforms.
Harada then went on to mention the seemingly impossible scenario of a single mega-console.
I think it would be interesting if Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo got together just to make one console. It makes me very happy to think about all the possibilities that could occur because of that.
Competition is surely what brings out the best in each company, even if the impossible were to happen, would it be a good thing?
