Tekken boss interested in one-console future


By: Eddie Makuch

PS3Xbox360_28514_screenOutspoken Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has sounded off on what the industry could look like if Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo were to join forces. Speaking to Australian news outlet News.com.au, Harada said he believes the potential for industry innovation would be "endless" if the Big Three were to someday build hardware together.

“I think it would be interesting if Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo got together just to make one console,” Harada said. “It makes me very happy to think about all the possibilities that could occur because of that.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Harada said Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony are no longer able to control gamers’ play habits due in part to the rise of mobile and browser-based gaming.

“For a long time, the game industry has been able to control the way people play games,” he said. “There was a platform that people used solely for their gaming needs, and the industry had control of the trends and such that occurred. [But now] people are able to not be tied down by consoles, and it doesn’t stop with phones; we have browser gaming and all these different platforms.”

Harada’s latest work is fighting game Tekken Tag Tournament 2. The game hit Japanese arcades last September and welcomed an update in February, which added new modes, such as one-versus-two matches and pair-play mode. It is due out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 11.
