Is Sony Reviving Studio Liverpool?

Junkie Monkeys: As most of you know Sony shut the doors on SCE Studio Liverpool over a year ago. This move crushed many PlayStation gamers’ hearts, because this studio has had a long and rich history with PlayStation. A recent trademark filed by Sony has me curious about a few things concerning Studio Liverpool’s revival, except this time it seems they may be going back to the studio’s roots.

That would be awesome.
Let them bring Wipeout next-gen!!!

thereapersson1576d ago

I miss Psygnosis / Studio Liverpool! I would certainly love a next-gen sequel to G.Police and Colony Wars.

ZodTheRipper1576d ago

I'm still enjoying regularly Wipeout HD and Wipeout 2048, Wipeout is one of my favourite Sony franchise ...please let this be true.

Pintheshadows1576d ago

G_Police remake needs to happen, although with an understandable, not entirely insane control scheme this time.

this could be like when take 2 boston changed its name back to irrational games,i hope its true.

doctorstrange1576d ago

Most likely they're just keeping the trademark theirs for any PS1 titles they plan on porting to current platforms.

It was a chronically underfunded studio, come to think of it all the British studios are underfunded in comparison to the American and Japanese studios yet they still came out with some of the most iconic series to exist in the Playstation brand.

Not only should Sony bring back Liverpool, they should throw the money at it and see what crazy stuff they come up with.

Didn't they just merge the staff and buildings with Evolution? They were pretty close geographically and both focused on racers. It made sense to combine their talents and tech.

torchic1576d ago



a small few found jobs at Evolution Studios, the rest had to find their own way.

The old trademark remains, but now it looks like they have just created a new one.

I was thinking a few weeks ago how cool it would be to see a new Destruction Derby for the PS4. Simple and with no bs, just like the old games, but this time also multiplayer

What's that Honey. Were having Liverpool for dinner. Mmmhh my Favorite.

DA_SHREDDER1576d ago

Didn't they join the Evo team?

OrangePowerz1576d ago

Part if the Liverpool people did.

abzdine1576d ago

would be the best thing for PlayStation fans.
WipEout HD is 1080p 60FPS with no lag, i can't even imagine the performance of WipEout PS4!
Please Sony make it happen

Ps4 doesn't support 4K gaming i think.

xKugo1576d ago

No 4k support for PS4.

JoGam1576d ago

PS4 only support Videos and Photos in 4k. Not gaming.

loulou1576d ago

4k gaming is obviously supported..

look at the disagrees. they weren't idiotic sony fanboys taking offense to the possible slight against their plastic and silicon god. they were infact devs disagreeing with you.... oh wait

HeyImBen111576d ago (Edited 1576d ago )

Lol wooow, why all the disagrees. You are so pathetic.

Hicken1576d ago

No point complaining about the disagrees, but no, the PS4 does not support 4K gaming. Not unless it's on some Pong-level games.

Kleptic1576d ago

Sony confirmed this before, right? NO 4k rendered games...which is obvious when you look at the retail gpu the PS4's is based off of...Its very clearly a 1080 gpu...

4k takes multiple gpu's for even relatively simple modern games...Sorry, a single Radeon 7800 series isn't going to be pulling that off any time, i know, as Wipeout HD, to this day, is still one of the most impressive console games i've ever witnessed...

but it'll do 4k video...and may even support the quad layer BD disc stuff in the future...if its true that is all software related, that is...a lot of conflicting info on that...
