Japan - LEVEL-5 Inc.

Please, oh please, be Dark Cloud III.
Relientk77  +   1084d ago
I love Level 5, and Dark Cloud 3 would be most welcome.
Rainstorm81  +   1084d ago
Any level 5 PS4 RPG would make me a happy gamer
Relientk77  +   1084d ago
SAE  +   1084d ago
Yes!!! I already send them a message that i will buy Ni no kuni but i'm expecting dark cloud 3. Hope they listen to me :)
Donnieboi  +   1084d ago
45 Japanese studios? M$ is lucky if they even get one quarter of that support (especially since m$ will never be popular in japan as a console maker). Can't wait for the resurgance of Jrpg's!!
Rainstorm81  +   1084d ago
Fingers crossed.....The Gaming Renaissance incoming
Relientk77  +   1084d ago
I cant wait to see what these talented developers and publishers bring to the PS4
Kamikaze135  +   1084d ago
All the developers I like are there. Good :)
NastyLeftHook0  +   1084d ago
i gottta save! now!
dafegamer  +   1084d ago
from software= Demon Souls 2 confirmed
SactoGamer  +   1084d ago
It's possible.
starchild  +   1084d ago
Hopefully a next generation Tenchu game. Oh how I wish...

Anyway, Sony is making all the right moves so far. I was very impressed with what they showed. Making a developer-centric console is the best move they could have made.

FS is my fav dev.. i would love to see sequels to demon souls ( although dark souls 2 is just as good imo ), armored core 6 ( although im pretty pumped about verdict day, hopefully it comes to the states ), 3d dot, tenchu, otogi, enchanted arms and ninja blade

they may not have as high of production values and/or could use a bit more polish but one thing they always nail is the fun factor which is rarely matched. they are also one of the few devs who dont dumb down their games so "everyone" can play. you either like a game from them or you dont, they dont give a f*ck most of the time

i see a lot of RPG companies mwhahahaa looks like the ps1 and ps2 days are coming back!
wingman32x  +   1084d ago
I really hope so. I'm so sick of shooters and games trying to be gritty just for the sake of being gritty. RPG's are by far my favorite genre, so I want to see more of them. I would welcome some 3D platformers as well.
OneAboveAll  +   1084d ago
I don't see DICE on there.

BF4 with 64 players plz
-IronMan-  +   1084d ago
EA is Dice. derp derp...

DICE is owned by EA which was on the list.

Strange that EPIC GAMES is not on the list since they showed the Unreal Engine 4 - I smell another EPIC exclusive deal with MS for next gen.

Also no Crytek on the list...Crytek and MS have been getting pretty close lately o_O

Edit: I hope MS is reaching out to both EPIC and Crytek on input for the 720, who better to ask than the 2 power houses of the gaming industry.

Edit 2: @ Noob...really? I did not know that. Someone needs to update Wiki as it only says that Crytek is in a Partnership with EA and not owned.

NoOoB101  +   1084d ago
Crytek is owned by EA as well

@porkchop...u r correct. my bad but ty

Fortnite on Xbox 720, Maybe?
porkChop  +   1084d ago
Epic did the same thing with the Vita. They showcase their engine on every platform because they want people to buy licences for their engine so Epic can make money. It's funny though because Epic will sit there and talk up a system and say why it's so great to develop for, but then they don't even make a game for it. They did it with Android, they did it with the Vita, they did it with the Wii U, and they're doing it again with the PS4.


Crytek is NOT owned by EA. Don't know where you get your information from but it's wrong. Crytek only has a partnership with EA, that's why they make games for other publishers, example being Homefront 2 for THQ.

Eldyraen  +   1084d ago
@Nooob101: Actually Crytek is an independent developer but its partnered with EA. Its actually a widely diverse developer with several studios of its own (best known being German HQ). I have no clue what they're all working on though as have teams all over the world.

I'm sure they're working on Ryse, Homefront, Warface, and likely several other titles though. Not all of the 'games' they make are even for the public as have done military training simulators (learned about it when reading about them online one day).
Sarcasm  +   1084d ago
Man, I can't imagine the amount of sheer game play value with those open world games.
ninjahunter  +   1084d ago
The vita also had a long list of devs that supported it too. I dont think i need to say more on that.
torchic  +   1084d ago
these are people all WORKING ON PS4 games RIGHT NOW, as in they're being made (and a lot of them most probably being made for 720 as well, fewer for Wii U)

so what I'm basically saying is that all those people ARE making games for PS4. whether you like it or not.
ninjahunter  +   1084d ago
Ummm why wouldn't i like it? You say that as if i want to see the PS4 burn in hell, which is completely out of line of you. What i said is a valid and related note of something that happened in the very recent past.

I honestly dont care if the PS4 flops or goes gold, it doesnt affect my life, i have no emotional attachment to it at all. I just happened to notice that this article was highly simular to a PS vita article back when it was being hyped and made a valid point. Please calm down sir, the internet is a better place when fanboyism isnt rampant, Please make level headed assertions and dont attack other people like that, if you cant play nice no one will have a good time.
TheSauce  +   1084d ago
Epic games is missing from the list.

I'm guessing this has something to do with MS.

Such a shame I noticed that too.
HappyWithOneBubble  +   1084d ago
MS can keep them. Epic don't make good games to me.
NateCole  +   1084d ago
The need to keep Gears exclusive. Without Gears then they will only have Halo, Froza and Fable. Not much at all.
T2  +   1084d ago
Plus fable 3 is sht ... Unless they revamp that series its unmentionable
Eldyraen  +   1084d ago
What's curious is they didn't list Unreal but showed Unreal tech footage during the conference ;)
majiebeast  +   1084d ago
Before anyone screams Rockstar isnt on the list rockstar is owned by 2k games.
alien626  +   1084d ago
Actually rockstar was on the list
Trenta27  +   1084d ago
I need to make so much money to afford all this...
nigelp520  +   1084d ago
NateCole  +   1084d ago
SEGA also made Valkyrie Chronicles. I am hoping for another VC for PS4.
KillNr3load14  +   1084d ago
All i got's to say is CD Projekt RED.
The Great Melon  +   1084d ago
Cyberpunk 2077

Can't wait.
laoboy_Smoke  +   1084d ago
Let's see if Bethesda are top tier devs or not.. shall we.
Whoo hoo! PS4 Baby!!!
kingmushroom  +   1084d ago
first the got to drop the bug then they can drop the next fallout On PS4
porkChop  +   1084d ago
Bethesda are top devs. The problem this gen was their choice of licensed engine. The Gamebryo engine is horribly unoptimized and buggy, and that's what caused most of their games problems.

They've been working on a brand new, in-house engine for years now. I expect great things from them this gen, and seeing how open a platform the PS4 is, maybe Bethesda can find a way to allow mods on PS4.
DivineAssault  +   1084d ago
wii u got put to shame here big time.. More 3rd party support they said smh.. this is what real 3rd party support is
Bumpmapping  +   1084d ago
Whats a WiiU?
Game4life  +   1084d ago
I see Mojang so im guessing Notchs next game is confirmed? 1x10c come on
izumo_lee  +   1084d ago
So far Sony has really righted the ship that was the PS3. Yes the PS3 is a great system but the architecture of it turned off a lot of 3rd party developers. With the PS4 they even said they went to the developers & asked what they needed to make the game they are capable off & the PS4 is the result.

A much more developer friendly system & from what i heard (from Jonathon Blow) a more open system as well. Where the Indie developers can self publish a game on PSN. That fact alone is worth supporting the platform.

I have to hand it to Sony, they ate some humble pie sorta apologizing for the PS3. And the PS4 is a sort of an apology or olive branch to 3rd parties to welcome them back on Playstation.

This E3 is gonna be amazing & so hyped to see what more we will see.

sidenote: Ok Squarenix this was a chance to redeem yourself & show us what many of us has been waiting for. Instead you AGAIN tease the gamer for anouncing an anouncement for something at E3...seriously.

I did find it strange that Hashimoto was like saying 'please' multiple times....was it like begging?
T2  +   1084d ago
I agree it was amazing they owned up to some past mistakes ... Good showing
black911  +   1084d ago
Everyone will support PlayStation except Nintendo & Microsoft.
Relientk77  +   1084d ago
Also here is the picture they showed at the conference that listed a good deal of the developers and publishers
younglj01  +   1084d ago
Wow after seeing KillZone:Shadow Fall I feel bad for every 3rd party developer.Once again GG sets the bar now its time for ND too take it one more level.I wasnt really ready for PS4 but after seeing KZSF and Infamous Second Son.I can feel great about next gen gaming.Hopefully Zipper Inc. makes MAG 2 and Socom 5.

Wow Sony slap the gaming community today.I was blindsided about what Sony was hiding and cant wait until E3.I personally feel sorry for MicroSoft bc I was thinking about getting the next Xbox but after today I'm happy with giving Sony my money again...

PS4 will be a true beast.Being able too play PS1,PS2 and PS3 games all on one system is amazing.Can't wait too see UnCharted 4.....
T2  +   1084d ago
True I would go one system based on what I saw today but you never know how much money ms will throw at this "problem" ... It isnt over yet lol
younglj01  +   1084d ago
Ik its not over but that was one hell of an first-round.Who saw this type of an showing when they first heard of the PS meeting.I personally think MS is concern about the PS4 now.
Tony-Red-Grave  +   1084d ago
sorry to burst your bubble but zipper is no more :(
ShaunCameron  +   1084d ago
I see D3 and Grasshopper Manufacture on the list. Does that mean I might see an Onechanbara game back on the PS? Or a possible Suda51 PS4 exclusive?
jacksheen0000  +   1084d ago
That's one helluva long list of third party developers Sony got there.

My guess is that Sony wanted to have this conference today in order to cut their conference time in half for E3 2013. makes a lot of sense.

So, All Sony really have to do now is focus on the games at E32013.
Clarence  +   1084d ago
All this means is Games, Games, and more Games. The complete entertainment hub.
torchic  +   1084d ago
Sony Online Entertainment

-so a PS4 MMO confirmed, maybe Planetside 2?

also noticed 4A Games. what are they doing? Metro: Last Light Enhanced Version or an all new game?
SoapShoes  +   1084d ago
I hope PS2 is on PS4... lol
blackblades  +   1084d ago
That's a lot never new they were so many.
