Putting so much time and effort into indie titles is something Sony is clearly doing at this point, but Shuhei took some time to talk about Sony’s own studios. - PSLS
Amazing AAA exclusives is a given, lol. We know this! Can't wait.
All hail the 4.
this means more exclusives! I cannot believe it cause PS3 had already TONS of them! just in Sepetmber 2 PS3 exclusives came out!! Puppeteer and Kingdom Hearts Keep up the good work SONY Greatness awaits..
Abz been a good year overall on the exclusive front. Puppeteer Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Final Fantasy 14 ARR Dragon's Crown Tales on Xilia The Last of Us God of War Ascension Still have Beyond: 2 Souls on it's way as well.
My personal best scenario would be if each of the major first party teams; Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, Guerrilla Games, and Sucker Punch, had 3 teams, 2 working on PS4 games alternatively and 1 working on Vita games. We all know that won't happen though :(
Gran Turismo 6 too.
“if we are just doing big budget AAA sequels, the industry doesn’t have a bright future. We need new ideas to be tried out. And while of course the big teams are trying new ideas too, the amount of resources needed and the financial risk is so large that they have to set a certain limit on that. That’s where the indies come in.” Sounds great to me this means they won't milk franshises just like Activasion does with CoD(Just to name one). Which is really intersting to have more new IPs. AAA Sequels aren't enough for gaming industry. @pedrof93, hail 4!
I think sony has made more new IP's than any other publisher this gen. Not a fact but i remember a couple years ago they were at the top of a list in a magazine
Although true that new IPs are required, I'd kill for a Uncharted game on PS4.
GTAV sales figures show this to be very true.
Developing teams get bigger and are divided to create more experience Hence how naughty dog accomplished working on Uncharted 3 and The Last of Us.
And why Guerrilla can work on Killzone SF while making a new IP... Or SSM working on GOW Ascension while making a new IP... With Guerrilla Games, Sony Santa Monica, and Naughty Dog alone... That's essentially 6 AAA studios right there. lol
Media Molecule is a one smaller team but they have tearaway and then a PS4 game in development as well. Add them to that list. =) Sony Santa Monica had the Battlestar Galactica writer say he has been working with them for 2 1/2 years so maybe something scifi coming from them.
keep up the good work man
Dev teams are getting bigger. You heard it here first.
I wanna see Uncharted running on the new hardware I kinda wish Sony would at least show a little of their bigger franchises even if it's just a teaser trailer
goty there will be a lot i think
uncharted and god of war running on ps4 will be epic god of war 3 can still giv me goose bumps looking at the scale of the enemies and the amazing texture or the graphics. im a graphic freak pleassseee sony show us something amazing
who cares about big budget AAA games I want TV shows on my gaming console damn it! /s " if we are just doing big budget AAA sequels, the industry doesn’t have a bright future. We need new ideas to be tried out" This is why I am and always will be a PS gamer as long as there is a PS to game on.
yes we do, but we do like small innovative games like Journey too, so don't forget about that!
Well give us vita owners more games.
Explains why the current AAA industry is pretty much garbage. Except for a few
I'm most excited to see God of War 4. I bet it looks as good as Beowulf! And it's going to be amazing now Cory Barlog is back. Also excited by SSM's new IP - open world Sci-fi RPG.
Hope they make a new wipeout game at some point (and hire back the 2048 devs)! Still can't wait for the next gen though :)
"People like the big budget huge experiences" People would also like it if those big budget, huge experiences would branch out to more than one or two genres. Some people can't even play AAA games anymore, because they're not made in a genre they enjoy, anymore.
AAA industry in a nutshell: Boom, *machine gun sound*, bigger explosion. Coupled with a mediocre gameplay, bland environment and a crap story about war, and you've got yourself a stagnant AAA fart.
I'm still waiting for The Order:1886 gameplay, Deep Down gameplay, and Sony Santa Monica new game announcement. I need something that screams next-gen to me other than Killzone: SF. Like that first Deep Down trailer; my jaw was on the floor when I saw that. I want that feeling again.
didnt they just show deep down gameplay at their pre tgs conference
Off-screen gameplay that doesn't even begin to represent what the game looks like in its current state. I want to see real, direct-feed gameplay that shows something other than a few monsters and a dragon.
New experiences from indies? Ironic because I have yet to have a unique experience with an indie. I think if you want innovation look at Media Molecule, Sony's own 1st Party studio. They keep costs at a minimum with user created content as opposed to DLC which is smart, but they also push the limit with their two AAA titles: Tearaway and LBP. So I would disagree with your statement Mr. Yoshida.
I really want to see SonySantaMonica's new Ip so badly.
