The Bilbao International Games Conference has announced that it will present a Lifetime Achievement Award to Shuhei Yoshida, current president of PlayStation’s Indies division.
Shuhei Yoshida will be honored at the BIG Conference in Bilbao with the Premio Honorifico, a lifetime achievement award for the current president of PlayStation’s Indies division. The handover will take place on November 19 at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre.
Always ready to speak bluntly, see his talk at GDC 2022, when he joked about PlayStation and NFT , Yoshida joined the Sony family in 1993, working in the team of the first PlayStation.
Over the years he has played roles of great importance, up to becoming president of SIE Worldwide Studios , a position he held brilliantly until 2019, thus passing the baton to Hermen Hulst.
Currently, Shuhei Yoshida’s work at the Indies division leads him to interface with independent realities, contributing to their growth and the development of increasingly interesting projects for the PlayStation platforms.
