    PlayStation 4 architect Mark Cerny has discussed how PS3′s “rough patch” helped Sony fashion a better, more accessible console for developers and consumers alike.

    Speaking with Polygon at the event, “PlayStation 2 went very well. I mean we were … our market share was 75% maybe, and then PlayStation 3 really hit a rough patch and a lot of that had to do with – on the consumer side – of the console being so expensive. So we had this goal with PlayStation 4 that we’d be a much more affordable console than PlayStation 3.

    “But on the developer side, PlayStation 3 had a reputation for being very hard to work with. I mean I knew that, I worked on a launch title, and so we wanted to make sure that PlayStation 4 would be smooth sailing, that it would be the sort of thing where you wouldn’t have to learn every detail of the hardware, in order to make a game. That it could be much more about the vision of the director of the title.”

    When asked if shifting to a common architecture to PC and Xbox One would take some of Sony’s power away, Cerny replied, “PlayStation 4 is the most powerful video game console ever created, so I think we’ve managed to find that middle ground between the power and that accessibility.”

    Elsewhere, Cerny stressed that a paradigm of gaming has shifted, and that players now have a six-month to a year relationship with titles through DLC and other means. He also teased a “tremendous evolution” in PlayStation 4 across the incoming cycle.

    PS4 launches November 15 and November 29 in the US and UK/Europe respectively.

    I can't wait to see what the PS4 has to offer and the dark side on the hackers part.
