No Man's Sky has earned itself some unfavorable opinions and choice words from different fans. This isn't surprising considering that a lot of those who have been waiting for the game since day one felt that it failed to deliver on many counts.

As it is a PlayStation console-exclusive, Sony's own Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios, has also given his two cents' worth on the matter.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Yoshida said that he can see where the players are coming from in terms of their negative criticisms towards No Man's Sky.

"I understand some of the criticisms especially Sean Murray is getting, because he sounded like he was promising more features in the game from day one. It wasn't a great PR strategy, because he didn't have a PR person helping him, and in the end he is an indie developer."

Yoshida didn't end in a sour note, however. Even though there has been some backlash even towards Sony and PlayStation for being the publisher of the Blu-ray version, Yoshida did admit that he enjoyed the game's performance.

He expressed his amazement at the sales that No Man's Sky managed to obtain. Because as far as sales are concerned, No Man's Sky performed well enough. Yoshida is hopeful that the developer will make good on their promise to continue delivering support and fixes to improve the game.

Hello Games has just recently released a bug fix to minimize the crashing issues experienced by players.
