- Shuhei Yoshida, developer on The Last Guardian is pointing fingers at Jack Tretton in an interview with Game Industry. According to Yoshida, The Last Guardian was never in a Hiatus. ”Hiatus, I never… It was Jack Tretton! He used that term, and I said no, hiatus is misleading. It was a hiatus in terms of releasing new information. The game has never stopped – the team has always been here. They’re going through the re-engineering of the game, so the team size is smaller, because it’s more engineering focused right now.“
This is promising news for anyone interested in The Last Guardian.
- Sony is claiming to be the underdog in america, and not dismissing Microsoft as competition. In an interview with Shuhei Yoshida, he stated “I’m half-joking but half-serious. It’s always great to have two companies fighting each other. People like it; it creates a news story.” And later in the interview, still on the topic of Xbox One states “We know they’re very smart people. It’s great that they were able to quickly realise that some of the things they were doing were not popular, and were able to make really quick decisions to change some of those things – even things that their engineering group must have spent a lot of time preparing before the launch. It must have been a very tough time for them. That shows how smart they are, and it shows their dedication to making Xbox One successful.” Sony seems to have great confidence in Microsoft, where most do not.

- Terraria 2 has been annouced by Andrew Spinks(the man responsible for Terraria) while doing an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun. ”I actually planned, when I first quit Terraria, to have been halfway through my next project by now, But it just didn’t happen.
