Sony: We Won’t Publish Any Retail Cross Generation Titles for PS4 & PS3

While Sony is going to be publishing Cross Generation digital titles (Hohokum for example is on PS4 and PS3, as well as PS Vita), it appears as though they won’t be doing the same for retail titles. - PSLS

Good, more than enough 3rd parties doing that, I want games to take full advantage of the PS4

Exactly. Would waste half or a portion of a dev team optimising for the PS3, might as well go full steam ahead on the newer platform.

I'm glad to hear this and already had a feeling it would be true based on the games they've shown so far. Knack, Infamous SS, Killzone, DriveClub, The Order, none of them are cross-gen retail titles. None of their AAA titles will be held back because of having to cater to a current gen port. At the same time they still continue to support the PS3 with games.

I'm really excited about the PS4 so I'm glad to see they won't be holding back the potential for any of their big PS4 releases.

"Also, at least in the UK, you can expect the second PS4 shipment to be “within days” of launch on November 29th."

If this is true it's newsworthy all on its own. Sony needs to have a steady flow to support the high-demand and it would be great if they can keep up the pace throughout the end of the year.

Even without cross platform titles, it can't be argued that PS3 is getting more support than any of its current gen rivals.

Can't complain, bring me more PS4 games!

Destrania1751d ago

To see what all Playstation exclusive devs will be able to achieve on PS4... I can't even fathom it!

no one is not trying to get a heart attack so fast in life.

I don't see that as a problem. Still curious on what they are doing with the Last Guardian because they are not commenting on which platform the game is being developed for.

KwietStorm1751d ago (Edited 1751d ago )

In a very recent interview, the one where Shuhei "blamed" Jack Tretton for the misinterpretation about the game being on hold, he mentioned that the team is currently busy "re-engineering" the game. Now I don't know about you, but that only means one of two things to me. They either are re-writing the engine or porting the game to PS4, and I can't see them re-writing the engine at this point for any reason other than the game being on PS4.

It will definitely be a PS4 game. They had technical difficulties with the PS3, and that's why it's taking too long, so it's not hard to realize that they better architecture of the PS4 will help them release the game.

pyramidshead1751d ago

Think how restricted the devs would be now on the PS3, when there is a much easier platform to transfer it too with updated specs. It will be a PS4 title for sure, would seem silly to do otherwise!

Big_B0SS1750d ago

If this does come out for the PS4 how much copies will it need to sell to break even? I am asking becuase this game has been in development for so long and they will need to optimize the engine for the PS4 which cost money.
