Which Popular PS3 Franchise Do You NOT Want to see on the PlayStation 4?

Considering that this is the last year the PlayStation 3 will have before the PlayStation 4 bursts onto the scene, many franchises will be making the leap to the next generation. At the same time, however, there’s also many that won’t, so we decided to ask the PSLS staff: “Which Popular PS3 Franchise Do You NOT Want to see on the PlayStation 4?” - PSLS (Hyperdimension Neptunia, Infamous, inFamous 2, inFamous: Second Son, LittleBigPlanet, Medal of Honor, PS3, PS4)

Resistance, that is all
Ezz2013  +   1031d ago
i say let the dev do what they want and make what they love
i don't want any Popular Franchise this gen to die next gen
because if the dev know that they can bring new things to the table with those games in next gen
then let them try

but i also want to see more new Ips next gen

well, you are right
but dev like ND they moved from Uncharted Franchise to New IP (the last of us) in the same gen
and they are doing what they wanted not what sony told them to do

i hope more Dev be like this
take more risks and try new things

If only it were down to the dev and not the publisher.
Skips  +   1031d ago

As long as Sony doesn't focus and rely SOLELY on just 3 or 4 franchises alone......

But bring a bucket load of new IP's as well.

I see no problem with Sony bringing all of their popular franchises to the PS4.
zeee  +   1031d ago
Oh boy, am I going to get in trouble for saying this but here goes nothing.

First of all, it's not about not seeing it at all. I wouldn't want to deprive myself of a great game just because it had previous titles on PS3. It's more about getting a break, starting to miss a few games. So keeping that in mind here is my list:

Ratchet and Clank
God of War (oh yes I did!)
Little Big Planet
Assassins Creed (oh yes I did... again!)
Resident Evil
Dead Space
Call of (freakin') Duty!

There! I wouldn't mind missing these games for a year or two.

I love Uncharted 3 but I wish there was more of a gap between the second and the third one. I was going crazy to play the second one but the third one, I could have waited for it.

I know this is the PS4 article but I'd want similar stuff on my 720.

HALO - Granted, I don't play HALO at all but I wish MS were to put more focus, energy and more importantly money elsewhere and on other original no-FPS titles. Alan Wake anyone?

Less Kinect games
Gears of War

And third party games such as Assassins Creed, Res. Evil, COD.

Is it too much asking the devs to bring some fresh content to the table? This 'Rinse and Repeat' is not healthy for the industry.

I am glad Quantic Dreams decided not to go for Heavy Rain 2. Instead, they opted for something new and fresh and I tell ya, BEYOND: TWO SOULS is a day one purchase for me.

Similarly, Naughty Dogs are working on what I can only imagine as "my game of current-gen". Every single thing that I have seen about THE LAST OF US, it is just simply brilliant. I know this is way too early to call it but every time I see anything THE LAST OF US, it just gives me that "Oh-this-is-my-game-of-th is-generation!".

LMAO at the typical troll fanboy Zee ^
The guy who hates virtually everything for no other reason than the fact that it's popular. As if new hardware can't inspire new ideas from developers who may have wanted to try things but couldn't due to old hardware limitations.
This is exactly why hipsters don't run companies... or anything else for that matter. Because they make bad decisions, and don't know anything, period.
Blastoise  +   1031d ago
Resistance still has a ton of potential in my opinion.

Honestly I can't think of anything I wouldn't want on PS4. Just space the games out enough so we don't grow tired of them. I'd love to see Uncharted 4 on PS4 but not for a few years yet, same goes for the next God of war.
Little big planet will have to make a jump to 3D I reckon, after LBP 2 and the Vita version I don't know what other tools they could add, those games are full of content

I think I remember the devs say that resistance 3 would be their last. So sadly we won't see any more... :(
TheUndertaker85  +   1031d ago
The Resistance franchise is owned by Sony, not Insomniac. Insomniac may not be working with Resistance again but other Devs inside Sony may.
jukins  +   1031d ago
totally agree after part 1 it was like eh for part 2 and wtf for 3. let it be over killzone should be the only exclusive fps and im tired of fps!!!!
Ilovetheps4  +   1031d ago
I thought Resistance 3 was the best in the series. I really enjoyed Resistance 3. It was tons of fun and I liked the storyline for it.
jukins  +   1031d ago
yea 3 was ok I exaggerated a bit since the story was short and felt segmented but the online was horrid
Ilovetheps4  +   1031d ago
Oh, I agree with you on that then. I played the online twice. I was a huge fan of RFoM's online, but I didn't like R3's online.
Root  +   1031d ago
Oh I hope Resistance continues

It would be nice if they did a new timeline though and call it "Resistance FALL OF MAN 2". Least then they can fix where they went wrong and give Nathan Hale some better character development.

"Take the controllers away from the CoD fanboys and encourage them to play something else…"

So true...

" I don’t want every game to be compared to Call of Duty or the entirety of the lay person’s knowledge of video games to be Call of Duty. Call of Duty is a plague on games and is holding the industry back from being able to fully blossom. End the corruption and allow for unique, interesting, and diverse content to make it’s way to the PS4. End the generation of the cookie cutter FPS. You cannot claim to be a gamer if your entire video game catalog is Call of Duty."

Couldn't agree more

you crazy..?
Resistance has a fun gun play and campaign's, it could be improved into a more complex game.
I will like Insomniac to take notes from KZ3 jet-packs level and use their talent and experience in plataforming to create a new way on playing a fps and bring Resistance into a new level of experience.

I will like devs to transition from a old and new IP giving space to a better continuation of their IP's and not milk it like (kz3,uc3.. great games but just more of the same and even worse somehow, not fresh)

but keep the formula with the original IP and reinvent the formula on your new IP. (don't do what ZIPPER did bringing MAG and ruining SOCOM a game that did not need such a change)

I wouldn't mind a next gen Resistance title, but it would need to be very different, like a huge open world with many players in it or something like that. I only used that as an example because I'm currently addicted to Defiance, but you get my drift.

I really can't think of a PS franchise I'd rather not see. I don't buy them all, but others buy ones I don't and vice versa so let everyone have their fun.

Final Fantasy. They need to take a time out and think about what they're doing before jumping head first into these projects. Better to reset yourself rather than announce something that you have in development for 8 freaking years before it can even be fully "revealed." =/
DragonKnight  +   1031d ago
They said "Popular PS3 franchises." FF is no longer a PS exclusive, and it wasn't popular this gen.
Welcome2Die  +   1031d ago
Agreed. This gen ruined many great titles...
knifefight  +   1031d ago
It's not about PS3 exclusive franchises, just franchises that ARE on the PS3. Look at the article itself; it talks about Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and yes, even Final Fantasy right in the article. So ah...looks like it still qualifies for comment fodder too. wasn't popular? Versus XIII has been among the most anticipated games this entire gen. People still don't shut up about the FF7 remake and upcoming FFX remaster.
FFXIII, while not having critical acclaim of others in the series, still had outrageous sales. So ah...not sure where you're getting the "not popular" thing either >_>
DragonKnight  +   1031d ago
"Versus XIII has been among the most anticipated games this entire gen."

Anticipation isn't the same as popularity. To be popular generally means to have access to it. The only FF games on the PS3 have been the worst received FF games ever released. FFXIII had great sales because people expected it to be a great game. The first FF of a new gen was always the best possible FF game to come out for that gen but not this time. FFXIII-2 showed what people thought of FFXIII and that they wouldn't be suckered again.

They should title the article differently then.
Snookies12  +   1031d ago
I choose none. Because I don't want to get a ton of disagrees, lol!

I kid, but seriously... It's always nice to have a big selection. Just because I wouldn't want to see one certain franchise on it, doesn't mean other people won't want it there.

That's why I tend to like Sony. They put themselves out there, taking risks on games that most wouldn't give the time of day.

You clearly chose the proper path to avoid disagrees. lol

Don't hold back, man. Look at me, I never do. My comments are raw. I don't have 8 bubbles, but I can't think of many times when I've used more than 3 and I always have 4-6 of them to utilize. I backup the things that I say and most people respect me for them.

There's nothing wrong with saying a game needs a break; it doesn't mean that you're chasing games away from people that want them, just expressing an opinion on why it could use some sort of change of pace. I say God of War needs a rest with Ps4; they've bled that storyline dry and haven't done much to improve it.

What a dumb question.Why should Sony leave out popular franchises that grantees them profit to risk replacing them with new IPs? You don't even want to see how the franchise looks or plays before you start saying you don't want it? You can always depend on Playstationlifestyle for stupid questions, trollish statements,narrow mindedness and idiotic theories.

So was it dumb to cancel the TV series Seinfeld? Why not go out in style instead of degrading an IP? My vote goes to God of War. Great series but they should just stop making them. See, I'm not afraid to say it and don't really care how many disagrees I get.

What's funny is how many people post but won't mention any titles like they are afraid or something. Either that or they just can't let themselves admit some of the popular franchises should stop. Call of Duty is another series that should stop.
smashcrashbash  +   1031d ago
I never said not to make any new IPs at all but I am not sure why people are always on Sony's back to stop making their series.It is those things that are familiar to people and what will give them the boast when they start. I mean tell the truth what would attract you more to a new console.A new game which you are not sure of or something familiar? You keep saying stop this and that when the next gen version could be the best out of them all. But you won't know because you won't give it a chance. One of the things they mentioned that they were going to say is Infamous.If they decided to leave out Infamous then we wouldn't have Infamous for the PS4 to enjoy.Not sure why PlayStation people are so obsessed with ending their series while everyone licks up every sequel they have on the other consoles.
MikeMyers  +   1031d ago
Why are you trying to turn this into a console wars debate? If this was about the next Xbox I would mention Gears of War.

I just think some series have run their course and this is a Playstation article. I would still love to see a new Gran Turismo on the PS4. Not every ip should stop continuing on.

Irishguy95  +   1031d ago
If you don't like making games it is surely a waste of money. I don't like making them either so I am basically paying 50 to play minigames which are limited to the tools of the game. Whereas I could just use the internet to play free and more diverse minigames.

Apparently the sense of community is what people like about it.

Personally, I think I could live with 4 Uncharted games.

Not that I dislike Uncharted, quite the opposite, but with Naughty Dog working on The Last of Us, I'd like to see them try their hand at another new frachise.

LittleBigPlanet, I guess.... although, I think the Vita version is the best version of that game, maybe just needs different devs to bring new ideas.

Series like Uncharted and LBP shouldn't carry over to the next system, but there should be spiritual sequels to them.

And really, considering the ending to GOW3 where the world was in ruin, that storyline at the very least needs to be closed with at least one more true game.

Kratos kills himself, Odin chooses him to fight along his side and promises to give him his family back, then to have thor not like Kratos after what he did to earth.

After Kratos showing Thor that he doesn't give a sh#t, they fight to the point where/when Kratos crushes Thors' skull with his own hammer on/in Valhalla and in doing so Odin declares war on kratos. Kratos bring death to Norse gods, and sends fear through out Norse mythology. Because hes a bonafide bad %$# mutha!!!!

I know it's an opinion thing, and i completely respect yours but i also hate it. Your opinion is now full of my respect but sprinkled with my hate. If your opinion had a face i would punch it.

On topic, In my opinion God of War. I love GoW. I own and have platinumed all 6. But Ascencion felt weird, un-inspired, the only GoW i've ever struggled to finish. Maybe it was the whole "another prequel" thing i dunno.

If they did reboot it i would like to see a hyper real game where the characters look real but have over the top effects like 300.

Even if it's getting old. Tekken must be ported. I can't stop playing it. But i agree. They can change the look of the game to make it refreshing and add more characters and moves to them..

Im dying for a new new Little Big Planet, but not a simple rehash. It needs 3D gameplay, not the current 2D, as well as 3D creation tools like the Media Molecule tech demo they showed and the PS4 event.

I think its a given at this point or they wouldnt have showed those amazing sculpting tools. Imagine what people could come up with. Its like having a chunk of virtual clay that you can bring to life. LBP3D is going to be groundbreaking, just like the first 2 games.

god of war and uncharted. *wears flame proof suit* I'm being serious about those 2 games just to let you know.

GoW is a good game to rent but IMO deffo doesn't have alot of replay value. besides how can they push the GoW story now? I think they should just leave the game be as is right now.

Uncharted is a somewhat ok game to rent but 100 percent sure its not worth dropping 60 to 20 dollars on. the platforming is fun but the shooting is very very boring. they should just leave this behind.
hkgamer  +   1031d ago
Uncharted I guess? It's time to move on from the franchise, its time for ND to move onto their next project/projects...

COD? Haven't got much against the game, actually never really played it properly. I rather they innovate us with something else.

Well, this is a pointless discussion. Look at kojima-san, he basically wanted to end a series years ago and he still stuck on making more games.

I'd like to see most there devs do knew ip's. I mean uncharted, resistance, lbp, and infamous were all new ip's on the ps3. I'm really excited for infamous SS and killzone SF, but I'd love to see what those guys could do with new franchises. I'd also love to see one of sony's devs start a rpg franchise.
