Kojima doesn’t know about PC

“In the near future, we’ll have games that don’t depend on any platform,” Kojima said in Tokyo, Japan at a news conference. “Gamers should be able to take the experience with them in their living rooms, on the go, when they travel wherever they are and whenever they want to play. It should be the same software and the same experience.” — All Voices: Gaming on Demand on the Internet: The Future via slashdot

Another Sony spokesperson trying to talk as if they’re thinking ahead of the curve by 5 years; if we read into this there is already a platform that matches his wished–it’s called PC/Mac.

If you take the Steam platform which has recently announced porting of some titles to Mac, you’ll find the most portable, pirateless, platformless platform; if it was expanded to include OS’ like linux it would be even more so. Although not strictly speaking a streaming service, it is still completely internet based. I’m sure other developers are going to join in with porting games to mac given that the mac is using the same processor as the majority of Windows computers.

I say, give it another 5 years and we’ll see more companies doing the exact same thing as Steam. Until then, people can buy consoles and wish for these basics.
