Sony’s Adam Boyes Touring Japan to Meet Many Developers and Publishers: Japanese Games Push Coming?

by (2 hours ago)7

Looks like Sony Computer Entertainment Vice President of Publisher and Developer Relations Adam Boyes has been up to mischief lately, and precisely he’s been on a tour in Japan to meet developers and publishers.

The first to break the news was Capcom’s producer Yoshinori Ono, that tweeted about a visit from Boyes.

Thanks Adam @amboyes as SCEA for visiting to our office at Tokyo!! : D I could take good time!

BoyesOno

After that, Boyes himself talked about a big presentation with a “huge room” full of Japanese developers and publishers.

About to present to a huge room full of our Japanese pubs & developers and I’ve got the nastiest cold ever. Sake was prescribed as medicine.

If you want to know just how many representatives of developers and publishers were present, Boyes also tweeted a picture of said “huge room.”

Presentation

There’s definitely a lot of room there for enough developers to fill up the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita with Japanese games for the next decade. But jokes aside, it’s definitely interesting to know that Boyes is on the move, especially with the E3, Gamescom and Tokyo Game Show sequence incoming.

Capcom’s big upcoming PS4 game Deep Down also hasn’t been announced for the west yet, and Adam Boyes is exactly the person Ono-san would talk to about that kind of topic. Of course that’s just my personal speculation, but a man can hope.

I fucking hate how we get a new image of Blanka every other Week, with no Street Fighter 5 announcement in sight.

Great news, hope to see some more Japanese games coming to the PS4.

I didn't buy a high end rig to play Indies on it. That's what cheap smartphones and consoles are for.

PC is for posting on VGC :P

No worries. Street Fighter V is probably going to get announced on the same day as Mega Man 11!

I suppose this is great and all but well before you put out a console is when you need to do this. Unless it's already in progress nothing can even come to fruition from this before 18 months.

Dear Santa,

What I want for PS4-mas is a port of Blazblue CP and Persona 5. A new Wild Arms, Dark Cloud 3, GT7 prolouge and the TLG.

Your friend, Gooch.
