Awards, Xbox One accessories and the Square Enix Collective pilot launch.

March 19th is a momentous day for Ken Kutaragi, former CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, who is widely recognized as the ‘Father of the PlayStation’. During the 14th Annual Game Developers Choice Awards, he will be receiving a Lifetime Achievement award for his dedication and contribution to the gaming industry.

Kutaragi found his first success within Sony when he began development of the first video game console, the PlayStation. It became the first console to sell over 100 million units and he helped top that with it’s successor, the PlayStation 2 which has sold over 155 million units to date, making it the best selling console so far. If that isn’t enough of a contribution, I don’t know what is.

Ongoing partners Razer and Microsoft announced that a range of products are being developed as accessories for the Xbox One. All we know so far is that two of the products are a controller and an arcade stick. More information will be announced in the coming weeks.

Last year Square Enix announced that it was working with IndieGoGo to develop a platform in which developers could pitch their ideas to the community. If, at the end of the 28 day period, it is clear that the people are passionate about the project, Square Enix will check to make sure the team behind it have the skills to make the game before helping them in setting up a crowd-funding campaign on IndieGoGo.

A few days ago, Square Enix launched the pilot phase of their Square Enix Collective which includes projects from Ruffian Games, Kitfox Games and Tuque Games. You can head over to the website and interact with the developers behind these projects to find out more and express your passion for the games you are interested in playing.
