Sweet! Start the party is fun and hilarious! !
Until Dawn looks awesome.
I hope it's a supermassive awesome new IP that takes after Warhawk mixed with Killzone on scale of MAG and a dash of Twisted Metal.

Dr Who: Eternity Clock, Start the Party and its sequel, Big Match Striker, and Tumble. Loads of *ahem* great games.

Awesome news!!! Can't wait to find out more about it :)

I absolutely love their games, apart from Dr. Who: The Eternity Clock. Definitely a different game... :/

I can't wait for Until Dawn though. And whatever this is. ^_^

Redwood Falls-like game

#fingerscrossed
WeAreLegion  +   947d ago
Haha. I hope so, too. Man... Redwood Falls looked SOOOOO good! Whatever this game is, I want it to be a big seller for them. They deserve it.

O.k. so just for the record. Since we don't know the name of the game, or what it's about, or anything about the look, gameplay, or concept really, how again do we know it's 'AAA'?

This guy is offering true insight. I'd ever dare to say they're developing some fun/party game of some sort (Move-related if such was the case) given their record.
Tontus  +   948d ago
The term AAA only refers to the budget of a game. If a game is AAA it just means it has a large budget, it just so happens that most AAA games are critically acclaimed and big sellers due to a sufficient budget allocated to marketing and the games development.

Here is the entire article.

'According to the LinkedIn profile of Sunny Mody, Supermassive Games is hard at work on a next-gen title. The unannounced project is being produced for Sony and will be released on the company’s PlayStation 3 successor.

Gaming enthusiasts may recognize Supermassive as the team behind Until Dawn. The horror title was announced during Sony’s Gamescom 2012 press conference and is expected to arrive later this year.

Supermassive’s previous work includes Dr Who: Eternity Clock, Start the Party and its sequel, Big Match Striker, and Tumble. The UK studio also worked on level kits for LittleBigPlanet 2 and Wonderbook’s Walking with the Dinosaurs. '

Where does it say anything about the budget? The only thing we know about it (according to the article) is that it will be released on Sony's next console. I'm just pointing out that for no reason that makes sense, it's being dubbed 'AAA'. Can't say anything without the disagree fairies getting upset. Good grief.

Sony at E3 is going to be disgusting

WeAreLegion  +   947d ago
No. Guys...

Disgusting is a GOOD term, here in America. Of course, it hasn't been used in that way since the 90's, but bothebo is just a bit behind the times. Seriously though. It's a good thing. This guy's probably just a skater. They still say that crap...
bothebo  +   947d ago
Should I brand dumb ass on to your forehead or ignorant? I'm a bit behind the times? I'm sorry I wasn't alive till 1994 unlike you. I'm probably just a skater!? You're probably just a putz.

Lol these guys only make games for the PlayStation. I find it really interesting that third party developers would stick to one console. Maybe Sony is planning on acquiring these guys depending on how Until Dawn sells? Please Sony don't let EA or Activision grab them. Lord help us
Riderz1337  +   948d ago
Some third party devs have no choice but to stick with one console because sometimes that specific company that owns the console is more open as to what games are available.

An example of this would be Quantic Dream who isn't first party but David Cage has continuously said that Sony grants them total freedom to do whatever game they want and they don't try to change the story, gameplay mechanics etc.

I think another important factor to consider is how vastly different current-gen consoles' architectures are from one another. Small independent companies might not have the finances to support design of a new or tweaking of their current game engines to support a different console. I think with next-gen games second-party developers will decrease immensely, either being purchased by the companies whose consoles they create games for, or just turning third-party to increase profits. I say this because of the similar hardware configurations that Durango and Orbis are (rumoured) to have.

Edit: I fully agree with your comment and I bubbled you up. I'm just giving another factor that I think developers will definitely take into consideration. I feel that Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo should start considering acquiring as many of these second-party developers as they can before the next-gen rolls in. I would hate for Sony to lose Quantic Dream like they have Insomniac

Seems like everyone is going to Sony. What do they know that we don't?
Mocat  +   947d ago
Sony has no clue what their fan base whants so they just keep making exclusives.
