Sony published a behind-the-scenes interview on the PlayStation Blog with the SVP of Platform Experience, Hideaki Nishino, where he discusses the new major updates–including the M.2 storage expansion and 3D audio through tv speakers. He also acknowledged that “there’s a lot” of other future updates that players are asking for.
“When I look back at the list of things we need to do, there’s a lot. There’s a lot the community is asking for as well. I want to say in the Japanese way, I’m diligently working on these lists and there will be more coming out in the future.” Hideaki Nishino commented in the blog post.
Nishino added the team had a wishlist of updates they wanted to bring to the PS5 before its launch, and that they are also monitoring the feedback from the community.
“We learned a lot through PS4 and continue to learn about how players are using the system and how games are behaving. We know what is most accepted and most popular; what features are not used. So, we had a gigantic list of things before the PS5 launch that we wanted to do. Actually, we dreamed of doing everything,” Nishino said. “Did I digest the whole list? I don’t think so, yet. But, there are interesting, exciting, fantastic ideas on the list. At the same time, we launched the PS5. So, we are receiving a bunch of feedback from the community through social networks or system telemetry, as well as the media, my family, my friends.”
Nishino did not clarify what the team is currently working on next, but reiterated throughout the interview that Sony wants to add more features, and the company knows their fans have plenty of requests.
These requests include the ability to organize folders (which the PS4 already has) and 1440p support.
