I'm obviously smelling Demon's Souls 2 for PS4 :)

Need4Game1485d ago

can't wait for PhyreEngine 4.0 !

mewhy321485d ago

The PhyreEngine is awesome. I can't wait to see what can be done with it on PS4!!!!

MWong1485d ago

Well that's awesome. I hope we do see new Atelier, Disgaea, Ys and Legend of Heroes on the PS4.

This is great news because PhyreEngine is one of those middleware engines that a decent number of Japanese studios actually are familiar with and like to use. So this means we'll see more 3d games (made faster) on next gen by Japanese devs. Very good news indeed. Hopefully this will foster an attitude towards the use of more middleware so they can push out more games in less time in Japan, instead of wasting years making new engines for each game. By the time they made their own engines from scratch and finished making the actual game, the next-to-come generation would have started. And then all they are Stuck with is a dated engine with abismal toolkit for future re-use. Buy PhireEngine is easily upscalable and easy for the creative side of gaming To use and is a full engine all in itself saving programmers/software engineers time. But So much better than spending years on making an engine from scratch, Which was a waste of energy and money (especially for smaller companies).

And a lot of other things, considering that PhyreEngine is the base of 110 different titles, including the Atelier Series and the most recent ones from Nippon Ichi

Would think that Fromsoft would be too focused to spare anything to restart the exclusive it came from.

Inception1485d ago

They can use the engine again with some upgrade for PS4. And aside of Dark Souls 2 and Armored Core V, FromSoft schedule are empty for next gen tittle. So i think they can't say 'no' to sony if sony came with a bunch of cheque for making Demon's Souls 2 on PS4.

I'm 1000% sure that Sony and From are Partnering again for Demon's Souls 2... I can't wait!

clearelite1485d ago

I think we're pretty much all in agreement on that one.

Please make Demon Souls 2 please.
: D

Abriael1485d ago

I'd love that, honestly. I still prefer Demon's to Dark Souls...

clearelite1485d ago (Edited 1485d ago )

I can still feel the atmosphere of Boletaria(SP) and I haven't played Demon's Souls in a while.

I can't wait to play a true sequel.

Koyes1485d ago (Edited 1485d ago )

Please is not enough to display just how much I and others want this. From Software, we BEG you to make Demon's Souls 2

tubers1485d ago

Come on.

Dark/Demon Souls portable!

MorfiTM1485d ago

I would buy that.
Soul Sacrifice was nice and Toukiden looks to be a good game, but if VITA could boast a portable version of Demon Souls/Demon Souls 2, it would be awesome.

Sony's PhyreEngine is a very underrated multiplat game engine that often gets overlooked by the more bigger names.

A lot of small niche Japanese developers use this game engine which is a big reason why there are so many niche JRPGs on Sony platforms. Gust, FromSoftware, NIS, Falcom, Compile Heart, Idea Factory, Alvion all use the PhyreEngine.

So to hear that the PhyreEngine will be relevant in next gen consoles is a good sign that all these niche game developers in Japan will continue to bring their games to Playstation.

Gamer19821485d ago

I'm glad its being ported as its those niche JRPG's that I love so much on my ps3 and vita.

Inception1485d ago

Yeah, that's why i choose PS4 over X1 cause i'm sure there will be new Disgaea, Ys, Legend of Heroes, and other niche RPG (exclusively) for PS4.
