Sony wants the PlayStation 4 to appeal to a wider audience than its previous consoles, and the company believes that it must attract more diverse developers in order for that to happen, said Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House in an interview with The Sun.
"I think the key is to have people — and increasingly women — with different sensibilities creating different games," said House. "It is not all about shoot 'em up games."
House added that Sony believes it has gotten developers excited about making games for the upcoming console with the details it has revealed about the system so far. According to The Sun, House said features like the touchpad on the DualShock 4 controller will help foster the creation of games with a wider appeal, the casual titles like Angry Birds.
Sony followed up its mid-February unveiling of the PS4 with a developer-oriented session at the 2013 Game Developers Conference last week, in which an engineer offered further details on the console's interface, user account features and social functionality.
