He wasn't impressed by Sucker Punch Infamous: Second Son? Lol well I wasn't and never will be impressed by your Gears of War series! Also he don't like the fact that GG showed another Killzone game. Well it looks damn good to me so who cares if its another Killzone? Oh and who says Sony want reveal more new IP at E3? It's not over yet so give them time.

Yeah theres no evidence that Sony is just going to bank on known IP's .I think they used Killzone and Infamous to at least show current fans that their fav series are still coming. Besides, that was 50% of the games Sony showed fom their own studios: the other were new IP's.

Additionally, the PSV integration is just an improvement over the current remote play on PSP and PSV... its about helping create an ecosystem which he says is something they need to create.

All in all, E3 is where it is going to be about getting the juicy info on a lot of things.

I think they used old IPs to gain an install base on the PS4...once they are out the way (Killzone, inFAMOUS, a new Uncharted, maybe Resistance) then the studios will move onto new IPs.

They are basicaly using old IPs aswell to test out the PS4 hardware so there new IP looks even more impressive
Joe913  +   1083d ago
Thank you a lot of people including myself would have been a little disappointed if they didn't show something about some of our favorite titles.
Britainz-Fin3st  +   1083d ago

They will carry on using those IP's until they sell no more.

IMO Killzone is boring but the fact millions buy it means they will keep making it.

New IP's will come from new studios, and currents IP's will remain into production.

Another Killzone after shadow fall, another resistance, another lbp.. Theyre great games but for me they dont do it. I like GoW though looks amazing, Id like to see a remake of Zone of Enders and The unholy war.

I dislike this guy. He's arrogant. I dislike him as much as I dislike Jaffe. Too cocky. They play a small roll in a couple popular franchises and think they can strut around like they're the kings of games. They aren't. There are better games by meeker folk, and those are the creators to whose opinions I'll lend an ear.

to Britainz:

GG, MM are already working on a new IP.
Sony Santa Monica has Stig (director of GOW3) working on something new, maybe GOW in a new mythology, or a new IP. I think Resistance has been shelved for the time being, with Insomniac working on a different games. Naughty Dog maybe has a new IP in works or Uncharted 4 since they have 2 teams working on games. We have yet to hear from many Sony studios, this is just the beginning.

[ The tweet came in response to a comment from Markus St., who wrote "Indeed the new Infamous looks promising can't wait for gameplay footage."

"What did you think most of that was," Sucker Punch replied. "We just used [a] different camera to make it more cinematic." ]

Every thing in the trailer was all in game with actual game-play. Just shot with a different camera. Just fyi :)
Summons75  +   1083d ago
Killzone demo looked amazing but I've never liked infamous to start so even though it looked impressive I'm willing to be it will have the same archaic controls and horrible writing the first two suffered from.

As for cliffy B, as far as I look at it he quit the industry so his word is irrelevant. Not that it ment much before, he was a self centered douche bag.
isa_scout  +   1083d ago
Ok, we must've played two completely different games because Infamous 1 had an amzing story; especially the twist ending. I also don't agree with the archaic controls comment, because every single Rockstar openworld game has similiar controls and their games are always pretty awesome. I definetly agree on the whole Cliffy B being a douchebag
T3MPL3TON  +   1082d ago
I'm with him on Infamous. There is no need for a sequel. The last game wrapped it up. No matter which ending you had.

I was impressed by the Killzone stuff but I'll wait to see how it actually looks when the game is released. Killzone has been like Crysis to me. Lots of pretty and not much else.

I actually don't like the new controller. I think the share feature is interesting but it shouldn't be on the controller. Make it a part of the system or the games like how EA handled social stuff in the Need For Speed and SSX game. Not a button on the controller.

To those that said stupid sh*t like 'oh he doesn't like Infamous I don't like gears.' Shut up, if Gears came out on the PS3 today you'd be running to the store to get it. You guys said the same nonsense when Mass effect was 360 only. Then you ran to the store to get it when it came out for PS3. Don't be childish.

It's the equivalent of saying 'stop not liking things I like.'

So what the guy can't speak his mind now? I swear u fanboys have child's mentality.

If MS showed off a "Knack" type of game you fanboys would be making fun of it.

So don't start with the flip flop BS.

It's been clear Cliff doesn't like casual type games that's why Gear Of War exile got axed, he doesn't think Kinect is right for his games.


"Sony showed a variety of games that's geared for all ages."

MS does the same thing, why is it a problem when they do it? Watch if MS showed one casual title you guys will automatically bash MS. Sony can go casual but MS can't ok that's fair.

MS still giving their fanbase hardcore games as well. It doesn't matter if its the same ones people buy it and they like them?

So Cliff should be able to speak his opinion, but no one should be able to disagree with it? Talk about a childish fanboy mentality.

"if MS showed one casual title you guys will automatically bash MS. Sony can go casual but MS can't ok that's fair."

One company has focused much more on the casual side of things than the other, and it's clear which is which. If you think no one has the right to point that out, you're wrong.

"MS still giving their fanbase hardcore games as well. It doesn't matter if its the same ones people buy it and they like them?"

That fanbase likes to play the same games over and over, with minor evolution from title to title. Good for them, but people who like a variety of games with a healthy number of new IPs mixed in have every right to disagree.

I'm sorry but two hardcore games every other year(Halo and Gears) is NOT satifying their fanbase. I know because I own a 360 as well as my PS3, and my whole family owns 360's so we're part of their fanbase. Seriously, you're happy with just Gears and Halo? I love the Halo series, but Gears is starting to feel like Guitar Hero(that's why Epic said screw it and let People Can Fly develop it). Also, people better be careful when saying MS brings you Gears of War because we may end up seeing a Gears Of War game on the PS4 since MS doesn't own the franchise Epic does (NOT THAT I WOULD CARE) just like EA owns Mass Effect. Really, all MS has is Halo.

So we must let Cliffy say what he wants and never disagree with him even if he is talking complete crap.Stop the self righteous garbage.Microsoft supporters bash Sony ones no matter what so don't hand me that 'If Microsoft had done this' nonsense.Many of them would have found something to bash them about no matter what. Bet no one would complain if they made Gears of War for the next Xbox AGAIN. No one would be complaining about Microsoft using the same IPs over and over again or Nintendo.When the people that pander to Microsoft start making something else besides the same old stuff they always do then they get to critize.People keep say Watch Dogs was innovative and a breath of fresh air. Why? Because you can control things with a cell phone in a GTA world. One gimmick doesn't make a game innovative.

@ angelic

"Sony can go casual"

Yeah ever since 1997 they have produced games for ALL ages. Sony hasn't gone anywhere.

"but MS can't ok that's fair"

OK you see the way MS acted from 2005 (hell even with the first xbox) up until Kinect was annouced has everything to do with this. They were cocky and arrogant and loved to poke on Sony for not providing games for their fanbase (which was understandable since PS3 was just launched). Back then it was "all about games" and they just loved to laugh at Sony due to their win-by-default-situation.

Now suddenly when that ended since Sony's "waitstation" (or delaystation) started getting them games and they saw Wii succeed they turned the table completely towards casual market leaving the hc-base dangling in the wind.

"MS still giving their fanbase hardcore games as well. It doesn't matter if its the same ones people buy it and they like them? "

You see when you accept and actually cheer for this kind of behaviour on a gaming website one would have to think of you as "a tool for the company". Had you commented like this on an investor-related website I'm sure people would be more understanding towards your cause.

Kingdom Come  +   1083d ago
Don't be so unaccepting of others' opinions. Yes, "Killzone: Shadow Fall" technologically looked astounding, but gameplay-wise it did nothing innovative. It's new gameplay mechanics are stripped straight from "Far Cry 3" and "Max Payne". As for "Infamous: Second Son", yes, I'm pumped for a new "Infamous" Instalment, but what was great about that trailer? It wasn't in-game and showed a decent if not somewhat generic concept.

Thats my opinion, I'm somewhat looking forwards to "Killzone: Shadow Fall", I'm quite intrigued by "Infamous: Second Son", but mainly due to my admiration of its predecessors, but the standout game for me personally was "Watch Dogs". Why? Because its a breath of fresh air, innovative and original.

Childishly belittling critically acclaimed franchises just because you favour the Playstation brand, without offering any justifiable argument is just pathetic...

Did you actually read what he said? He specifically said that he was really excited by the trailer for Second Son, so yes he WAS impressed. All he said was that he feels it shouldn't have inFamous in the title because the inFamous games didn't sell well at all, and he's right. People who didn't like, or didn't bother with the inFamous games on PS3 will be less likely to embrace Second Son knowing it's another inFamous game.

He also never said that Sony wouldn't announce new IP at E3. He was just saying that being a new generation, now is the best time to show new IP's.

so it was ok to keep making gears games

also did we actually see any gameplay for next infamous? no right so wait and see. dead island had the best trailer ever yet was nothing like the trailer

so wait till E3

Killzone will only improve till it comes out, infamous is a day one for me personally. Knack reminds me of ratchet/jak so its a buy for me but would like to find out more

wait till E3 when ND will blow the competition out by showing something new or uncharted 4. also till santa monica steps into next gen for me it hasn't begun. GOD OF WAR 3 looks like a CGI trailer throughout

like i have said before haters will hate no matter what, and when ms shows their next box which will be all kinect stuff yet these same morons will praise them. psn is free and offering some killer features for ps4 yet xblive is still a paid service why don't i see him complain about that?

he act like he was the one who made gears of war and no one else in development teams deserves any credit what so ever

sony's world wide studios president said every sony owned studio is working on ps4 titles so yeh i can't complain about a company that actually moves the tech forward while also delivering great content for gamers

The only problem with your car analogy is that Blezsinski hasn't actually driven the 2013 civic but has only seen a picture of it and thus concluded that it is more comfortable (and thats his actual complement to the ps4).I see that as a direct attack to convex thumbsticks so you can call me a convex controller fanboy instead to still keep it easy for you to understand. Thanks for telling me to take a breather because oxygen provides 70% of the energy my body uses. Also im quite content with the ps4 concave/convex controller.

You seem nice, but if you honestly think there's zero bias at N4G then I have a bridge to sell you. MS is almost always hated or disappointed, Nintendo is alright or 'lol casual games', and almost everyone likes or loves Sony. There's obviously exceptions to this, but for the most part people here defend Sony pretty rabidly. I like them and all, but almost no slight against them is ever tolerated.

@Brucis ">Sony announces they might do tiered subscriptions and nobody really cares, despite ragging MS about it"

That would be for PS+ so nobody cares because as long as we can play online for free it's ok.

shhhh! Can't speak that way on here. People calling him a joke and overrated have no idea how he and his team completely shaped cover based shooters this generation and their unreal engine which adopted into many great games this generation. Because he worked on an exclusive for 360, he's immediately hated.
WarThunder  +   1083d ago
He was praised by the media because of his roll with MS... His over-hyped by the so called "professional" gaming journalism but criticized by gamers, because of his trolling and fanboysim against The PS brand.. Sorry but this is the truth.

Give me a break, he pointed out flaws with the PS3 and if you actually followed him a little you'd see he mentioned flaws with the 360 too. The guy had a big impact along with his studio this generation. Lets be honest, most people here are hating him because he wasn't wet over the PS4. With his PC experience, can you really blame him to be a little underwhelmed with consoles?

Killzone "floaty controls"?

Is this guy real?
talisker  +   1083d ago
He is probably terrible with a controller in FPS games. You know, some people just can't do it.

Gears of War is a terrible game in my opinion. Before you shout "fanboy!", I'll tell you something else: Halo is a great game.

I don't think he's being particularly negative about anything, he doesn't exactly 'jeer' the returning franchises, he just states he would've liked to see more new games.

He also says that Killzone just isn't up his alley, which is fine. I don't really see where most of the comments here are coming from, as his comments on the event are sensible and fair.
isa_scout  +   1083d ago
I know what you mean, but for a guy that just "retired" he pokes his nose into everyne's business, like he's the end all be all business man. It's like, "Shut up dude you're a developer, if you're not developing games you're no use to me." Instead he tells Capcom "Call me we'll fix Resident Evil together." and now he's talking about the PS4. If he's going to leave the industry then freakin leave it already, no one knows what the hell he's doing. I think that's the most annoying thing about him; he's only directed Gears of War and yet he's more cocky than someone like Hideo Kojima. His parents obviously didn't raise a humble person, he's a 30 something year old brat. The fact he's been in the industy for a long time doesn't matter, there are game testers that have been in the industry just as long or longer, he's still only developed one IP. I'll start taking him more seriously when he puts his money where his mouth is, and creates these inovative new games that he wants so badly.

That's got to be one of the most ignorant comments I've read on here in the past month. Bravo.

"Bleszinski on PS4, three keys to winning next-gen"

1. more cover shooting
2. triple the amount of alpha male obnoxiousness
3. less dildo bat

I respect him because...
he brought to TPS to the forefront of most games with Gears. But I only bought my xbox for Gears of war 3. I'm seriously disappointed with the fact that they promoted dedicated servers on the box, only not to have them after 3 months of shipping the game. I don't plan on buying anything from Epic for quite some time now.

profgerbik  +   1083d ago
Yea that was awesome, I know many don't care about it but I loved everything they showed off. Even my family of non gamers all had their jaws dropped during the presentation..

Cause I couldn't stop screaming through the house.. COME LOOK!!!

So stoked for the PS4.. I don't think I have honestly ever been this excited to buy a console.
Ultr  +   1082d ago

I was there sitting, and just talking to myself "wow, no, wow really, WOW HOW? oh wow are they...? wuat?? seriously???... sheeesh wow...!!!"

:D but it seems that people actually did not really listen or don't understand what they are about to acomplish! because THIS is mindblowing!

Still haven't found the willpower to finish Bulletstorm, yet I've finished the Aliens: Colonial Marines campaign three times. Cliffy's opinion of the PS4, good or bad, is a non-factor in my world.
porkChop  +   1083d ago
It's funny that you base your opinion of Cliff on Bulletstorm, because Cliff didn't even develop Bulletstorm. He wasn't involved in the games development at all. All he did was help market the game. The game was entirely developed and written by People Can Fly.

Now I won't say whether Bulletstorm was a good game or not because that's entirely based on each individuals opinion. However, no one can deny that in a market saturated by generic military shooters, Bulletstorm was at least DIFFERENT. They at least tried something NEW, and FRESH.
isa_scout  +   1083d ago
You called my above comment ignorant,and then you come at us with that? You're hilarious; how in the hell was Bulletstorm original in any way? It looked like a Gears of War FPS with a whip. Oh, you're talking about the fact that it had a sorta Call of Duty Arcade Mode for the campaign were you get a score, right? Maybe it was the bromance writing? No, that's Gears again. Cliffy may not have directed it, but he put his name on it when he promoted the shit out of it, so he takes the credit whether it's god or bad. Most people think Tim Burton directed Nightmare Before Christmas. He didn't a unknown guy at the time; Henry Zellick did, and you can bet your ass if it would've been a crappy movie Tim Burton would've taken more heat because he chose to market the movie. I actually played Bulletstorm, and enjoyed it for what it was, an immaturely written laugh out loud type of game. Even though I enjoyed the game at no time while playing through it's incredibly short campaign did I feel as if it were anything remotely new or fresh. If Bulletstorm is considered innovative we're all screwed.
MrMayhem28  +   1083d ago
Gears of War 1 was a great game but 2 & 3 disappointed me. Cliff is more interested in being a celebrity than making games it seems like.
profgerbik  +   1083d ago
Wow that is ironic when Gears of War 2 was made, they talked about that would be the end of Gears series.. but what makes you so different cliff when you still kept making them just like how GG is still making Killzone?

Oh yea nothing is different about it at all.
Father Murder X  +   1083d ago
Why are you Sony fanboys so angry? Cliff is an assclown but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Everyone doesn't have to like the Ps4?
smashcrashbash  +   1083d ago
We are entitled to our opinions too. Or doesn't it work the other way around? It being his opinion doesn't make his points any more or less valid.
leemo19  +   1083d ago
That's Cliffs opinion, I could say the same thing about his Gears Of War games and how his doing the same thing GG is doing with Killzone,but who really cares. Everybody's opinion is different and people will like or dislike it.
Drainage  +   1083d ago
He, and many others, dont get Killzone universe because they never played Killzone 1. KZ2 just put you in this world with some arrogant guy named Rico and this one mohawk guy going to a planet to take out some guy.

Same opinions of the iNfamous brand at the top.

Same opinions on Knack's style. It wont sell well.

Bleszinski comments on Killzone. "It just felt like a great looking shooter with “floaty” controls." it just me or has this guy never even played the game? I mean "floaty" controls, I though the game was just the opposite with weighted down controls, especially Killzone 2! Killzone 3 was less weighted but still no where near as floaty at say any Halo game ever.
Legendary-Status  +   1083d ago
yeah if anything's "floaty" it's def. HALO you Jump in freaking halo lmao!

lol and to say Killzone dosent have it's own universe i beg to differ. cause every time i play KZ it reminds me of starship troopers but instead of the bug's the of my fav. movie's
MeatAbstract  +   1083d ago
Just look him up online and see how many games he's worked on in his career. Tired of these stupid fanboys jumping in to defend their precious console (that we've not even seen or is out yet!) when the guy just gave his opinion.

Yeah, why does Cliff Bleszinski's opinion matter? I mean, he's only worked in the industry for over 20 years! But what does he know, eh?

Seriously, the guys been making games since he was 17, he's worked on and helped build this industry and suddenly people think he only made Gears of War and his opinion doesn't matter? Pull your head out your asses you blinded fanboys.
