Sony PlayStation 4: Queen's University expert

2013-02-27

Queen’s University School of Computing professor Nick Graham is available to talk about the launch of Sony PlayStation 4, which is widely expected to be unveiled Wednesday at a press conference in New York City.
Dr. Graham says video games consoles like PlayStation 4 may not be around for much longer.

“The PlayStation 4 may be the last generation of this kind of console. We are seeing more and more move to lightweight gaming devices, such as mobile phones and tablets, and very low-cost consoles such as the new Ouya. These devices are characterized by games that are shorter, more accessible and dramatically cheaper,” he says.

Dr. Graham is an expert on video game design and the director of the EQUIS Lab (Engineering Interactive Systems at Queen’s University), focusing on technology underlying the development of collaborative games.
