Sony Called Demon’s Souls “Crap;” Expresses Regret

Shuhei Yoshida, Sony Computer Entertainment’s head of product development, has egg on his face. In an interview with Game Informer, Yoshida expressed his regret at passing up on publishing Demon’s Souls due to his initial sour experience with the game.

Yoshida said:

For my personal experience with Demon’s Souls, when it was close to final I spent close to two hours playing it and after two hours I was still standing at the beginning at the game. I said, “This is crap. This is an unbelievably bad game.” So I put it aside.

In retrospect, Yoshida admits this was a mistake, having seen the success of the franchise. He went on to say:

We definitely dropped the ball from a publishing standpoint, including studio management side. We were not able to see the value of the product we were making.

Hindsight is 20/20, right?
