New possibilities of the PS4 make Suda51 horny

Grashopper definitely working on something for the PS4 then

Grasshopper Manufacture boss Suda51 is always the perfect man for some gaming strangeness and apparently the new world of possibilities gets him more than a little excited.

Speaking in his column in Japanese gaming mag, Famitsu the men behind such gaming greats as Killer7 and No More Heroes also predicted that cloud gaming is the future of gaming.

He wrote, "I'm writing this just a few hours after the reveal of PS4. The PS3 has been on sale for seven years but it's still very much alive and doesn't feel old at all. The life cycle for hardware has gotten longer, I keep thinking. But saying that, I'm thrilled that we can welcome the PS4 at the end of this year."

"I think that in the future, cloud delivery will become totally commonplace. Social networking has certainly done that. To be able to play anywhere, on any device, with shared data - this will be an alluring new feature for games. You'll have your own personal profile or ID that you can access from many different devices and enjoy your game from anywhere, in various different ways.

"That this play style will become a reality is futuristic enough. But in addition, cloud saving becoming standard practice is an evolution in itself. It will add new value and will surely result in new ways to play. Thinking about the future of this stuff and then constructing and outputting something appealing is our job as game designers, and from that challenge we can take new strength," he continued. "And that makes me horny."

But there's more. He also confirmed that they are working on some stuff for the PS4. He added, "As has been announced, Grasshopper Manufacture will make games for PS4, as will (parent company) GungHo Online Entertainment and (sister company) Acquire. I can't go into detail at this stage, but for sure the new challenge is exciting."

"During PlayStation Meeting 2013, Sony showed such a strong vision. Now we have to decide how to find our own victories within that and present games that express the Grasshopper world. And that makes me horny again," he concluded.

What a legend.
