Gamescom: Sony’s Studios Are Still Working on PS3, Vita Games

All 14 of Sony's studios may be working on PS4, but that doesn't mean they're not working on PS3 and Vita, too. (PS Vita, PS3)

Abash  +   904d ago
Yup, that was fairly obvious. Some have moved entirely to PS4 development though
ABeastNamedTariq  +   904d ago
ALL have :)

"Shuhei Yoshida – the man basically calling the shots for every PlayStation exclusive – confirmed that every studio in Sony’s stable is making PlayStation 4 games."

EDIT: Wait....I think I misread your comment. My bad haha.

Yeah, well... I was gonna question your comment, but you did a good job of doing that yourself :D

On topic: Clearly Sony would still be working on Vita games, but it's really good to know that they are not killing off the PS3, like Nintendo did with the Wii. They understand there is a huge install base, and even more getting a PS3 this holiday season. I'm getting a PS4 day one, but still looking forward to what they do with the PS3.

So everyone is making PS4 games, and then some of those making PS4 games, are also making Vita & PS3 games ?
princejb134  +   904d ago
This is one of the things that's bad and good
Is good for ps3 gamers who are planning to stick with ps3 for a few more years
But is bad for ps4 because many of the games such as last of us or beyond two sounds could have been put as a ps4 launch title making their line up much stronger
ABeastNamedTariq  +   904d ago
TLOU and Beyond have been/were in development for years. Why would they hold off on that for PS4?

They're going to be the PS3's swan song (as well as GT6, etc.).

I wouldn't want them to take titles that were meant for PS3 and move them to PS4 just to pad their launch lineup. Heh, heh.

It's not that serious lol, lineup is fine.

I have more than enough ps3 games to still play and purchase so I'm not concerned about a ps3 game drought one bit.
I'm actually glad sony is getting all their studios to develop for ps4:-D
remanutd55  +   904d ago
I think sony should have an internet psvita only show to announce all SCE games coming to the system in 2014.
boybato  +   904d ago
Maybe Bend's rumored project ends up being a PS4/Vita title...
GdaTyler  +   904d ago
Wish it was a Vita exclusive. Vita needs more exclusives. In my opinion PS4 is already in a good position.
CocoWolfie  +   904d ago
the vita needs more retail games.. digital games are kinda really hard to sell consoles, so just a pointer, hopefully they release more that way :')
sherimae2413  +   904d ago
but if you just look into it... there are really a handfull of retail games for 2013 and we only have 4 months before the year ends...

next month and onwards..

killzone mercenary
rayman legends
ys: memories of celceta
batman arkham origins blackgate
angry birds star wars (ewww)
valhalla knights 3

and were still not sure about:

atelier meruru plus
final fantasy x hd
final fantasy x-2 hd

and ofcourse japan had alot of retail releases for vita from sept. and onwards...

Hey, some Vita owners like Angry Birds. Not you or me, but I'm sure one or five of them do.
Shinobi100  +   904d ago
The end of this year is ok. But next year looks like a barren wasteland at retail for Vita
Hicken  +   904d ago
How can you say that? Most of the games on the Vita's list for this year weren't announced until this year; if they were revealed earlier, it was late last year.

There's still at LEAST TGS to announce games, and they won'all be out this year.
arbitor365  +   904d ago
sony is still putting out huge titles on PS3, while microsoft has completely abandoned the Xbox360 since the beginning of this year.

so, really sony is taking it easy on microsoft with the PS4 right now. once naughty dog, santa monica, polyphony, media molecule, and quantic dream jump to the PS4, it's done
DrakenSilverwing  +   904d ago
its just like xbox to xbox360 gen, they abandoned there first console right away, they are abandoning the 360 right away this time. its a good thing sony doesn't do that cause they know they can still sell alot of systems for years to come. just like the ps2. took years before they stopped and there were many great games for it even after the ps3 came out.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   904d ago
Really haven't seen many new Sony retail vita games announcement much.

You can't have third party do all the work of driving the install base for you.

Shinobi100  +   904d ago
Sony should have an internal rule that all of its main console developers must develop a console game, so we get more killer apps like Tearaway from Media Molecule
Misaka_x_Touma  +   904d ago
one game is not saying much if you have like 10 different development team
and killzone that only two.
From Sony.
If they don't start announcing game Vita will definitely not reach PSP success.
Shinobi100  +   904d ago
I meant to say Sony should make each 1st party dev team make a retail VITA game. They're already making console games
sherimae2413  +   904d ago
now what i need is to know what are those vita games, please sony pm me!!
lol ^_^
kratos_TheGoat  +   904d ago
New Games No Port God Of War Vita Come Fast Victory awaits!
bjmartynhak  +   904d ago
I would get if it was the trilogy instead of 1 & 2 only. Impossible to beat the 2 and don't want to follow the story.
Xof  +   904d ago
Kinda sad we've got statements saying that Sony is "still" developing for the Vita when it's barely 1 year old. That wording implies the Vita is on its last leg, like the PS3.

Which may very well be the case, but I think most everyone here--myself included--desperately hopes otherwise.
sherimae2413  +   904d ago
your just only being pessimistic dont you think? you seem to forget ps3s early years?

oh i still remember those negative and bashing comments for ps3 and trolls ... its really a hard times for ps3 fans at that time

How am I being pessimistic? I'm not making any qualitative judgment at all.

I'm pointing out that the wording of the article is implicitly pessimistic. That has absolutely nothing to do with me, personally.
Canary  +   904d ago
I wonder if the Sony fanboys got their knickers all twisted up over this post and disagreed will ever realize that by doing so they're saying they want the Vita to crash and burn and fade into oblivion.
bsquwhere  +   904d ago
Lol pathetic. If you read 99% of the comments are pro Vita. Everyone on this article that actually has interest in the Vita would like it to do well.
sherimae2413  +   904d ago
ofcourse they will "still" develop for ps3/vita because its their platorms too.... you shouldnt take that "still" too seriously

its not like the ps4 is still their only platform... sigh ...
i really dont know.... gamers this days are too spoiled? a game has just recently announced after a week they asking for more?

they should be playing ios games instead because almost every week there is something new game for it, dont u think?

Hicken  +   904d ago
Hoo, boy.

The wording doesn't imply anything, except perhaps that people were expecting every single dev to be working on PS4 and putting all other devices on the backburner.

Sherimae is right: it IS just pessimism on your part. Most everyone on here doesn't desperately hope anything, because we're confident Sony will do what they always do: support their consoles.
sherimae2413  +   904d ago
thats what i see it too hicken, as if almost every game that will be announced should BE on PS4, or if its multiplatform the PS4 must also be in it too....

i have seen it once with that panopticon trailer last may, people think, assumes its a ps4 game and impossible to be a vita game
and when revealed it was freedom wars exclusively for vita, and the rants and whines and complains have plague the gaming sites

some people are also assuming that gravity rush 2 should be a ps4 game.... sigh.....
sherimae2413  +   904d ago
i have no ill will against the ps4 besides i really want it to succeed! because i will also get it too ^_^

but we cant have all the good stuff on just a single platform

and knowing sony... we know they support their platforms
we will see their key franchises on the vita, we just need to be patient somehow as games like infamous or gt takes years to develop ^_^

So a lot of sony exclusives coming this year and some still to be announced. Dont know how much time I will have to play my ps3,ps4,vita and then my wii u and 3ds are going to need some time as well.
Soldierone  +   904d ago
They've said this a lot lately, I just want to know what the games are. If they can't announce them, then it must be PS4/Vita titles or something.

We need some exclusives too. I mean look, Vita does well, Ubisoft even went and expanded the Assassins Creed game!
cabbitwithscissors  +   904d ago
Support for a minimum of 10 years FTW.
Shinobi100  +   904d ago
The good news about Vita, is that due to remote play with PS4, the Vita will be supported as long as the PS4 is around. Which could realistically be another 10 years. 3DS could be replaced within 2 years
Shinobi100  +   904d ago
Once Killzone Mercs is completed, Guerilla Cambridge can start working on their second Vita game, which should in theory be superior to Kzone Mercs, based on "The Law of Understanding System Tech"
GdaTyler  +   904d ago
And take some time to release it. No sooner than 2015 or 2016. Make it mindblowing and adding vehicles.
GdaTyler  +   904d ago
Also, could you guys approve this for me? It would be greatly appreciated. :)
