Sony veteran Shuhei Yoshida is now a PlayStation Stars digital collectible
Users need to play one of Yoshida’s recommended games to unlock the PlayStation exec
Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Shuhei Yoshida has been added to the PlayStation Stars loyalty programme as a digital collectible.
A bobblehead version of the PlayStation veteran can be unlocked simply by playing one of six games he has recommended.
They are A Space for the Unbound, Before Your Eyes, Cult of the Lamb, Neon White, Sifu and The Knight Witch.
PlayStation Stars launched last year via the PlayStation App and will expand to consoles at a later date.
It offers two types of rewards – loyalty points and digital collectibles. The digital trinkets can be arranged in a virtual display case within the PlayStation App and shown off to friends via PSN profiles.
Yoshida joined the PlayStation project in 1993, a year before the release of the original console.
He went on to become the president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios.
Yoshida currently serves as head of SIE’s Independent Developer Initiative, where his role is to nurture external, smaller independent studios.
At last month’s BAFTA Games Awards, Yoshida received the Fellowship prize. The award is the highest accolade that can be bestowed by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
