Beyond: Two Souls engine development was an 'absurd' idea done out of passion, says David Cage

"We're just crazy people. We don't do this for money or fame. We want to take risks because we enjoy trying to push the envelope," he said, referring to the studio's newly upgraded engine. (Beyond: Two Souls, PS3)

Sony you want more diversity between your first party studios add Quantic Dream to your repertoire. Of course i would love you to buy Level 5 as well but first add David Cage's incredible mind and then a RPG dedicated studio.

David Cage is one of the few game industry people I respect. Along with Tetsuya Nomura, Nobuo Uematsu, Hideo Baba, Hideo Kojima, and Hironobu Sakaguchi...

Wow, after looking at my list, I realized David is the first non-Japanese person to get on it... Congrats David! Lol, seriously though, he does amazing work and Sony is really lucky to have him creating games for their system.

Absolutely agree. It's interesting too because Cage brings a more familiar Western style of stories to Quantic Dream's work.

Not that I don't love Japan's genuises!

With Heavy Rain's unexpected high sales, Beyond: Two Souls / their PS4 game being in development, and David Cage expressing his concerns in the past about multiplatform development, it's safe to remind you that he prefers exclusive development. Quantic Dream's games bring needed change and fresh air to the games industry. I don't know how they do it with the PS3 hardware but their games look absolutely jaw-dropping and impossible. Sony will probably acquire them this year.

These are the kind of developers we need. It's unfortunate things have taken such a huge turn towards profit, because it makes it hard and scary for developers to be willing to take chances, because of the fear of a game bombing and people losing their jobs.

But in the entertainment industry it's always high risk, high reward. Developers and Publishers fear taking a leap of faith on a new idea, but you're not really taking a leap of faith if you have confidence in your team, the idea, and the quality of your work.

David Cage and Quantic Dreams you have my full support from now on.

i think david cage has said in past that he is open to the idea of working for sony, i also believe after beyond two souls sony will make a real effort to buy QD.

I would also like for sony to buy Darksiders IP along with the development team and put them under the sony santa monica studios control. Darksiders 3 on GOW4 engine lol damn

also if Fuse Fails for insomniac than i also see them coming back to sony, Fuse is a new IP coming out around some of the biggest well known games on 2013 so EA is sending it out there for Failure.

David Jaffe is also rumored to be working for sony on a game not sure if its a PSN game or a next gen ps4 title.

It's not about the money. It's about sending a message.

David Cage.

Honestly, IMO, a gentleman of the medium. He's a visionary!

Dear Sony,

Please buy Quantic Dream.
adorie  +   613d ago
and give them the freedom they need to continue making groundbreaking cinematic-like gaming experiences*
Darth Stewie  +   613d ago
Dear Sony,

Buy Quantic Dream, give us a release date for Beyond 2 Souls, and release Indigo Prophecy as a PS2 classic.

Sincerely
-A Quantic Dream Fan
Godchild1020  +   613d ago
Or maybe in HD on the Beyond Two Souls disc or just downloadable.
mayberry  +   613d ago
A+
Plagasx  +   613d ago
Good, we need more passion driven games in the industry.
Belking  +   613d ago
The game looks sweet but i just hope it has more interaction. I'm not a big fan of this genre.
QuantumWake  +   613d ago
Quantic Dream suits Sony so well. Sony should definitely consider acquiring the studio after Beyond is released.
Riderz1337  +   613d ago
I'm actually not surprised that Quantic Dream is still producing exclusive games for the PS3 even if they aren't owned by Sony,

What other publishers let the developers do whatever the hell they want with a game? There might be some others but I'm positive the list is rather small.
WeAreLegion  +   613d ago
Oh, there are tons of publishers that let their developers do that. I mean, for instance...

Um...

Hold on. Lemme think. Uh...

No no. Just stay with me. I've got this.

Hmm...

Yep.
WeAreLegion  +   613d ago
1) BUY Quantic Dream, Sony. Buy them now.
2) David Cage is what Peter Molyneux wants to be when he grows up.
3) This is my most anticipated title of 2013...with The Last of Us following shortly behind, of course. ;)

Quantic Dream should make movies or CSI-like TV-series, it would be really nice to call their "games" videogamey.
