Shuhei Yoshida explains the PS4 controller fail at the Tokyo Game Show
Authored by Rob Newberry
We previously reported on how the PS4 had a ‘technical difficult’ that some were amounting to an ‘epic fail’ during a live broadcast at last week’s Tokyo Game Show. Apparently the controller for the PS4 wasn’t recognized by the console and the host of the show was left holding the bag…of shit.
Today SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida discussed the incident on Twitter and blamed the situation on “wireless interference on the show floor”.
Okay, that’s reasonable enough, there probably were thousands of wifi devices within a stone’s throw from the controller – but that leaves a few questions on how similar environments (eg. university and college dorms?) will handle the wireless situation with the controller. I suppose it remains to be seen.
One thing for sure, it was a nice gesture by Sony to discuss the incident head-on instead of bury it and pray the whole thing went away.
What do you think Pixel Nation? Is this a cause for concern? Are there other environments out there that might cause similar “wireless interference”? How many of you cancelled your PS4 orders after this “epic fail”?
