been a good year overall on the exclusive front.

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 :(

“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

sourav931828d ago

Although true that new IPs are required, I'd kill for a Uncharted game on PS4.

doctorstrange1828d ago

GTAV sales figures show this to be very true.

Thatguy-3101828d ago

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.

Skips1828d ago (Edited 1828d ago )

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.

Dev teams are getting bigger. You heard it here first.
