Yoshida Admits To Sony Mistakes At E3 2014
Sony had a good E3 2014 press conference overall, but nearly dropped the ball for a lengthy part of the conference when it moved completely away from gaming to focus on other things for far too long. Fortunately, it just managed to recover, and now Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida has commented on the matter.
During this year’s Gamelab conference, Yoshida was present to pick up an Honor Award for his work in the gaming industry, and Gamereactor got to him to chat about his thoughts regarding Sony’s E3, the VR move, the PS Vita’s position in the company’s future plans and what the man wants from Uncharted 4.

He just wants a good game to that last one. D’aaaw.
You can watch the video interview over at Gamereactor, but as for what Yoshida had to say about E3, I was glad to see that he admitted Sony made a mistake.
Hindsight is a great thing, and Yoshida believes that while Sony had “a lot of positive feedback” to their conference, not everything perfect.
“We spent too much time talking about Powers,” he replied when Gamereactor asked about the boring part of the conference. “So we could have made [that] a bit shorter. So that was a mistake.”
While that wasn’t their only mistake, it’s good to see acknowledgement rather than Yoshida saying the E3 conference was “great” or “diverse” or “innovative” or some other PR nonsense.
