Adam Boyes, head of third-party developer relations at PlayStation, told me at E3 that he’s known about Square’s Final Fantasy VII remake for a year. It was a fun secret to keep.
It's no secret that the Vita is a flop. Sony's powerful handheld has failed to make much of a dent in this brave new world of iPhones and tablets and crushing candy on your daily subway ride to work.
Will the PlayStation 4 keep getting new games, or will it suffer through the dreaded software drought that inflicts most video game consoles during their first few months on the market? Sony is hoping—and promising—the former.
Imagine, if you will, a giant list. Maybe it's an Excel file. Or on a whiteboard somewhere in Sony's offices. Maybe it's written on index cards.
