While part of the Sony Santa Monica team is hard at work developing God of War: Ascension, another part is working on an entirely new IP, which is shrouded in mystery. And magic. - PSLS

Hahaha good one. Maybe we'll finally get another awesome RPG exclusive? Who knows..
one can only dream about blockbuster PS3 exclusive RPG by Sony Santa Monica Studio
How magic is Magic?
Really random picture lol
Magic and Might - The Real story of King Aurthur and the Knights of Justice.
This is why Sony is #1 with the core gamers. They continually invest in new IPs.
You do know Sony doesn't tell every studio what games to make right? This #1 with the core gamer crap has got to stop. If Sony was number one with the core they'd be shit loads ahead of everyone in sells, that would include pc gamers preferring sony which we all know they don't. Sony has their faithful, that's who they are #1 with. In regards to gamers, well id think they like games regardless of platform.
They don't tell every studio what to make, but they CAN reject a game, or decide not to publish it, or buy the rights to make it exclusive. The core isn't as large a part of the gaming market as it once was, so saying Sony should be outselling everything else is stupid. Yes, stupid. Many, MANY primary PC gamers have a PS3. You'll notice they say it's the best combination to have, as it gives them all the multiplats, plus Sony's exclusives. The PC may be their primary platform for gaming, but they recognize the quality core offerings the PS3 gives. Of course, if you REALLY want the best experience, you also need a 360 and a Wii, as there are great core games on both systems that can't be found anywhere else. But, especially in recent years, the console that's been home to the most core games has been the PS3.
Hicken, saying they should be number one isn't stupid. Most people don't have multiple machines. Most gamers can afford to get one and try and keep up with the games for that system. Those many, many pc gamers you speak of are the few that can afford to support that. The PC gamers I notice, don't say thats the best combo. The PC gamers I see treat console gaming as a whole as superior and don't bother with the outdated capabilities. I know they can reject a game, Im sure they've canceled games too. But Sony isn't anymore in tune with their "core" group as with Microsoft and Nintendo. The core isn't as large, but that doesn't mean their numbers have dropped. That means when that oh so faithful gamer is playing the PS3, they're going to tell their family all the wonderful things it does so that said family may look at it as a better bargain. My point really is the statement about being number one with the core gamer, they feed their community just like the other big 3. I have a PS3 and a 360, wish I could do a PC. Your statement about the core not being as big is stupid, yes stupid. Just because something grows with another crowd doesn't mean the early adopters are going to leave. They're there, as evidenced by you and the original posters asinine response to it.
I'm going to disregard most of your response as you not understanding, which is okay. I'll try explaining it so you can understand. The core is not the majority. The PS3 is a system primarily for the core. Since the core doesn't buy as many systems as the casuals, it's no surprise the PS3- and Sony's gaming products, in general- are not number one. That the PS3 is the number one console for core gamers is certainly debatable, but arguing that it would be number one overall because of that is ignorant. Why? Because the core is NOT the majority. That's before taking into account that many core gamers would have multiple systems, or that some casual gamers could boast the same. That's before adjusting for inflated sales numbers for whatever reasons. Frankly, I think it's ridiculous that you're arguing against the core being the minority in gaming. The Wii didn't get to all its high sales off the backs of core gamers, though some certainly did buy it. It's the highest-selling console this generation because of its casual appeal. I won't get into insults, like it seems you want to resort to, but I'll instead try to appeal to your logical side: How could something that caters to the minority possibly outrank something that caters to the majority? Edit: What I am telling you is that if the core only bought the PS3, and ONLY the core bought the PS3, it would be outsold- this generation; last generation means nothing, as so many things have changed- by whatever systems the casuals chose to buy. If EVERY CORE GAMER only bought a PS3, and EVERY CASUAL GAMER only bought a Wii, the Wii would outsell the PS3. That's what I'm saying. The PS3 would be #1 with the core. But since the core is outnumbered, and since not every core gamer has bought a PS3, it shouldn't be expected to be in front.
The PS2 is the best selling home console ever, it was the most powerful until the xbox. Everyone knows what the playstation brand is, even non gamers. Even casuals bought the PS2. You mean to tell me, since majority gamers own one console, that if the core of the gaming community didn't buy an xbox or nintendo and instead went with the ps3 that the numbers would have been dratically different? Maybe not have beat the wii, but it would be alot closer and it would have miles ahead of the xbox. If majority gamers, again since majority own one console, would have skipped the xbox and went to the ps3 since it's supposedly #1 the ps3 would have gathered another 20 or so million in sale. You get what im saying now? The PS2 sold so much, including the "core", that if it was still number one they could have easily accounted for another 20 million in sales and that's just taking away from the xbox crowd. I couldn't think of the number it could have taken from nintendo. You get what i'm saying now? The "core" of playstations fans, again it's the one console owners i speak of, have splintered enough to not make it the #1 among core gamers since the PS3 isn't the top selling machine. More than enough people predicted the playstation brand was so strong it was going to lead this generation again. AGAIN...DO YOU GET WHAT IM SAYING NOW??? In no way did I insult you, I said the response was asinine. That is in no way indicative of your character. I don't insult the poster, i go after the response. Playstaion had enough of the core gamer in it's corner with the ps2. It was number one. The price and allure of the wii stole some, and xbox stole some to take away the #1 claim. If you go from obliterating the competition one generation to just being in the pack the neck then obviously some of your core has moved on to another product.
You should tell Microsoft to stop making Halo/Gears/Fable/Forza
Are you stupid?! It's BECAUSE they stick with the core gamer that they don't make money. Don't you see the hundreds of stories on casual generating more revenue than the core audience? That's why 360's are selling now, the Kinects. That's why the Wii sold too. Pc gaming is the corest of the core, and it's also the least selling in the gaming market. Notice the trend? The more core you go, the less your likely to sell. But Sony knows that it's not only numbers, it's pedigree and respect, and they've definitely earned it amongst the core.
Core gamers aren't anymore the biggest share of the market. Its the Call of Duty/Halo/Gears of War/Angry Birds and Kinect Casuals. You can see it in every game that once used to be aimed at a hardcore community...All those games get toned down to be liked by Casuals. And PC+PS3 is the perfect combination and im a damn hard PC Elitist. You get on PC the best Multiplats that are available on all 3 systems or at least on PC and 360. Skyrim,Battlefield 3,Witcher 2,Alan Wake and so on look all 2398762984736 times better on PC. 360 gamers again buy the low res crap version. PS3 has the better exclusives for people that are older than 5. Stuff like Heavy Rain,Uncharted,the upcoming Last of Us,Beyond,Tales of Xillia and so on are so much better than the generic shooters you can get on the 360. Ooh bald space marine adventures...oh and there again...oh and there some dancing games awesome LOL And PS3 has often the better Multiplats for games you can't get on the PC. Final Fantasy 13(-2),Tales of Vesperia,LA Noire(before PC Release) upcoming Dead or Alive 5 etc THERE IS NO NEED TO OWN/Buy a 360 at this time anymore. The only reason MAYBE is > FIfa < cause Ultimate Team there is much better thanks to cheaper prices cause there are so many hackers that flood the market with cards so the prices drop down a lot. Sadly not possible on the PS3 cause no one is getting hacked there and FIfa on the PC is played by like 5 people. And yes this is the only reason i still own my 360 i bought years ago when it had games like Dead or Alive 4,a lot of J-RPGs and cool things like Kameo.
While I pretty much agree with most your comment and maybe multiplats that aren't on pc are better on PS3 (I don't know). for me it still has some value seeing as it clan play Vesperia in English and that's a big deal for me. Got tales of graces F preordered but not got the PS3 yet lol.
that incorporates guns and magic? @mr.beatdown Your IQ must be over 130. I would of never thought of that.
Yeah that would be awesome. Guns infused with magical powers and elements. But then again in legend magic and technology don't mix to well together. Iron, copper and steel are usually magical and spiritual creatures weaknesses.
Ever heard of Clive Barker's Undying? Yeah.. Guns AND Magic. Sweet game too. Not to mention Bioshock.
Bioshock pretty much then.
Call of Kratos !
That would be one terrifying call. One that would make the world quake with fear.
it's from Sony Santa Monica. I have no worries whatsoever.
I wonder what it is, An ultra-violent wizard or witch game? It's sad but I know what that article picture is from. A David Copperfield magic show and the trick opened with I Just Died In Your Arms by the Cutting Crew then had the music from Aliens to add suspense.
David Copperfield hahahahaha
OFF TOPIC: This may give ND AND SMM a chance to finally have quality AAA experience on the handheld since none of them were available (or partly collaborated) on the device previous gen.
GG might be doing it too, I think that's the future of SCE - less dev's, same game output with resources pooled
Insomniac also has two dev teams now.
please not another shooter!
Maybe they are making a the game that mixes sorcery and deadmunds quest for an epic move rpg that we want
Santa Monica always do magic!
