Gamasutra had a good interview with Sony’s head of R&D, Dr. Richard Marks — it’s well worth the read. They talk about how he got his start in high school at a game shop his pop owned playing loads of old school games. He then moved on to study aerospace engineering in college where he found his love for robotics. Something he says is very similar to video gaming.
He goes on to talk about his day-to-day and how he tries to keep to a schedule, otherwise he’d end up playing games all day. He also has some interesting things to say about the Move and Kinect. And, being head of Sony’s R&D, one would think that he sees brain gaming as an end-game, but he doesn’t.
