With the PlayStation gamescom 2014 press conference behind us, Famitsu (via Gematsu) published an interview with Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida, where he revealed that the theme for this year’s event “was to introduce first-party games, as well as a number of third-party games.”

However, Shuhei admits that there wasn’t enough time during the conference, “so unfortunately there were some games we couldn’t introduce this time.” When asked if this meant there were more games we’ve yet to see, he replied:

Yes. [Because we had so much to show,] that’s one of the reasons we had the new The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne trailers before the conference.

Switching gears to Japan, Shuhei addressed the PlayStation 4’s disappointing start, saying, “More content is necessary in order for it to gain ground. If the games made by Japanese developers further multiply, game fans will gradually begin buying PlayStation 4.” In order to help bring more Japanese-developed games to PS4, he says, “From here, we’re working with publishers to increase the PlayStation 4 user base.”

With the Tokyo Game Show starting in just over a month, Yoshida revealed that “we consider [PlayStation 4-related game announcements] a very important point,” meaning there should be a big focus on the system at the event. If the previous rumor holds true, TGS should include a big PS4 announcement.

Although it’s still to be determined, Shuhei said he wants to show Project Morpheus at TGS. As for The Last Guardian, don’t expect to see that next month.
