Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls developer Quantic Dream has confirmed they're creating something for Sony's PlayStation 4. A new console is "another reason to try and innovate" their work.-Strategyinformer
Fortunately some devs are devoted to innovation instead of doing the same thing over and over again. I'm eager to see how they're going to use PS4 technologies to create something that will hopefully change gamers' habits, like Heavy Rain did (and like Two Souls probably will).
Hopefully they do bring Kara to life. Want to play her story so badly
It would be a Day 1 purchase for me, no doubt.
QD's games will most likely resemble their ps3 work. Only a few devs have been able to change their palette with next gen such as ND and Insomniac
Yea I agree, Heavy Rain was an amazing game and the graphics were amazing as same as the story line. Can't wait to see this at E3 (hopefully)
All QD's games are worthy of a day 1 purchase.
Call me a troll but hasn't he been doing q.t.e games since ps2? Also he doesn't really make games.
troll # u asked for it ;)
Wait... does he make QTE games or are they not games? You're confusing me. As far as what defines a video game, I don't recall any definition limiting the interaction to something other than QTEs. All of his games have had goals and challenges and utilize gaming peripherals in order to accomplish said goals and challenges.
Have you never played Police Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, 7th Guest, Ripper, Sam and Max, The Dig etc? These 'QTE' games are the exact same thing, except pressing buttons on the controller have replaced the old mouse pointer. And why don't people say this about the Walking Dead games? That has far more QTE's than Heavy Rain.
seeing what they can do on PS3, i'm excited to see what they can accomplish on a more developer-friendly architecture, etc...
Heavy Rain is one of those games everyone must experience, I'm hoping the same for Beyond, and Quantic's PS4 title. I still need to play Fahrenheit though.
no shit batman lol, i mean if it did resemble a ps3 game.. Well i for one would be disappointed! It being next gen!
Not the visuals mate, they're talking about the gameplay style/mechanics.
I can't wait for what quantic dreams can do with the ps4. But for the moment I'm really anticipating Beyond: Two Souls
one things i admire about QD is that they only move on to the next game.
Sony should buy this company. Really talented company thats underrated.
I think Beyond sales will be a big factor for Sony. Just remember that they release a game every 6 years, so while talented, they aren't exactly the most bankable studio out there. Hopefully, with the PS4 being easy to program for and Sony giving all its developers support, that will change. Sony's primary focus, though, is becoming profitable again
Sony's middle name is innovation. QD will completely blow our minds away with their ps4 games.
First name is Game. Middle name Innovation. Last name is Quality. Long Live Play.
Wouldn't the name include "Sony"? :/
Sony is a way of life!
Good no more QTE. I absolutely hate that in video games or an extended use of them. It seems like I am watching a movie or mildly controlling the outcomes of a heavily scripted game. Not trying to knock Quantic Dreams just not my style.
i love creativity and Sony has whole lot of talented first party studios that allow me to live some unforgettable experiences. a quantic dream prod is a must buy for me.
have been gaming for the past 17 years and am proud to say that am exclusive to sony's playstation!
That's a shame to limit yourself to one brand
it's not a shame it makes perfect sense especially when M$ charge for online, if M$ continue with the same crap and more is coming next gen by the sound of it, they don't deserve anyones support.
Your right they don't amiga...shame on them for charging anything.
WB27 if that is supposed to be some sort of defence for M$ it isn't, they take away your internet access and hold it to ransom an internet connection you pay your internet provider for and are forced by M$ to pay again. If you can't see the problem with that then you really are blind and the sort of sucker M$ are more than happy to take advantage of.
Seems your fishing for something that isnt there. I could point to so many other instances that you deal with in everyday life that hold the same practice as MS. Here's one- certain cell companies charge you for internet then charge an extra fee if you want to use your phone as a hotspot. Wait another one- you pay for cable yet you pay even more if you want to rent movies(or pay extra monthly for HBO etc) from the same service you already pay for No one is defending MS really, im just pointing out that people act like MS is the only company who does this when it's more prevalent in everyday life than you think. Take that as you wish..i have no more bubbles nor will I try and convince you your logic is skewed cause gamers expect these companies not to have there own business model.
Apologies WB27 was a bit over the top, but on principle I will never consider an xbox while they take away your internet and charge you to get it back, your argument is flawed the phone hotspots and cable charges are for something those companies provide. M$ do not provide your internet that is what you pay your internet provider for, if online was free but M$ charged $60 for cross game chat I might think people are mad to pay it but at least you would be paying for something M$ are providing but we know there is not $60 of value in cross game chat which is why they take away your internet..
Well why limit yourself to one spouse? Why not drive two cars at the same time? Why not just like every sports team out there and be a part of every club there is? Why only go on green lights? Why not go on red and yellow and stop signs too? Why not eat everything, even if it isn't food?
I wish more developers would have this mindset, We already did that so lets try something new. That is why I prefer gaming on a Sony console because out of the 3 they offer the most unique & diverse experiences along with the more of the same approach.
In a world full of shooters Quantic make for a refreshing change, Sony really do have some great developers creating some wonderfully diverse gaming experiences, will definitely be interested to see what Quantic have in store for the PS4.
I think this game will be market as an movie which would be cool....
Thatd be awesome. Some people will probably go to theaters and ask when Beyond: Two Souls is coming out XD
Amiga you don't even make any sense, what are you talking about? Microsoft taking away people's internet access? Please. Where did you read that on some internet blog or something? I also don't know why you act like Sony still gives away online service for free, ever hear of Playstation Plus? They're charging now and they STILL don't have cross game chat. I remmeber when Sony reps used to say how they'd NEVER charge for the PSN and then they eat their words and follow Microsofts model because they've lost so much money. I have both systems and to say that owning only the PS3 isn't limiting yourself is a joke. There are good exclusives on both platforms and the sad fact is that the majority of multiplats are still being developed on 360 and ported to he PS3 so theres usually a slight (sometimes significant) performance dip on the Playstation. That coupled with the lack of cross game chat (6 years after the console was released), the lack of custom soundtracks for every game (not a factor for everyone) and the fact that Xbox Live usually has better online functionality (Try playing Twisted Metal and tell me Sony doesn't have work to do) it makes sense to own both just for the multiplats. Sony just really let me down this generation. There's so few exclusives and they didn't tap into any of their old franchises/IPs that have potential like Syphon Filter, Crash Bandicoot, Getaway, Onimusha,etc. and then games that should've been PS3 only like GTA and Devil May Cry they let go. Imagine how those would've looked as exclusives with the Cell and 50gb of disc space... All that plus the learning curve for the more powerful PS hardware that makes most devs just port to PS3 so we lose quality. (The only game I ever played that was truly equal graphically and performance wise on both was Dead Space 1). I really hope Sony will do a lot better with the PS4 and we see the return of great PS1 and PS2 franchises plus all kinds of new exclusives and IPs instead of a few exclsuvies and their sequels. (Uncharted, Resistance, God of War, Killzone)
Preparedforwar it isn't difficult to understand, you pay your internet provider for your internet access which allows you to browse the web watch netflix online gaming etc except when you try to do it on an xbox, WHY because M$ have seen fit to block your internet access and force you to pay to get it back and you defend it. I am well aware of PS+ the difference is obvious but if your not sure i'll explain, first of all nothing has been taken away (internet access) second it's a choice if I choose not to take advantage of the games on offer on PS+ I don't subscribe. This is not an option on the xbox you subscribe to gold or lose your internet access, something that you are paying your internet provider for, but microsoft choose to hold to ransom, it's common knowledge no blog needed. to be honest i'm suprised it needs explaining to you.
