Would not surprise me Japan studios production seems to have tripled since Alan Becker became studio head.

I hope so, they were pretty weak on PS3 development (overall).

PlayStation_41715d ago

well as for first parties I'd probably agree... they seem to be picking up their pace now, quite a few good Japan Studio games were released this year alone

guitarded771715d ago

Yeah, Rain and Puppeteer just came out, but for most of the PS3 gen, they had little to nothing. Don't know why I'm getting disagrees. Sony themselves admitted that the Japan division was having a difficult time finding their feet this gen.

DeadManIV1715d ago

I disagree respectfully

IF they look anything like the Order 1886, God help us all.

This game looks very promising and this is still really early in development. Sony Japan has access to this tech.

Off Topic: Crytek, your move.

"I hope so, they were pretty weak on PS3 development (overall)."

"but for most of the PS3 gen, they had little to nothing."

You want to know why you got disagrees for your statement? Here, i prove you:

Besides Puppeteer and Rain, Japan Studio co-develope Demon's Souls with From Soft and it's for PS3. And there's Loco Roco, Echochrome 1 & 2, The Last Guy, Ape Escape Fury! Fury!, White Knight Chronicles 1 & 2 (co-developed with Level-5), Siren: Blood Curse, and Tokyo Jungle. All those games for PS3 and that only the top of my head. I knew there's more title that Japan Studio developed for PS3. So, Japan Studio list for PS3 are 'preety weak' and 'had little to nothing' huh?

"Sony themselves admitted that the Japan division was having a difficult time finding their feet this gen."

Can i have the link who's the official person saying this? Thx u.

@ Inception

No, I'm not going to waste my time digging for an old article, which I read year(s) ago. I know what I read, and I know what it said.

I stand by my statement that until recently SCE Japan has not had a lot of games for the PS3. You bring up Demon's Souls, and it was a From Soft game. WKC I and II did not sell well (to their expectations). It was supposed to be a 3 game series, and got pushed back to 2 because of that.

From 2005 - 2010, SCE Japan didn't have any high profile games in development for the PS3 (see link http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... They had some good games, but not the high profile games which make Sony their money.

You mistake a good game with a game that makes them a huge profit and makes them their money. SONY said that their high profile games for the PS3 were coming from Western development teams for most of the PS3's life cycle.

It's true, and it's what they said. Look at the list... 2005 - 2010. Their games consisted of mostly PSP and PSN titles. The exceptions where 3rd party developed and SCEJ published. As good as those PSN games are, they are not the system sellers God of War and Uncharted are.

"No, I'm not going to waste my time digging for an old article, which I read year(s) ago. I know what I read, and I know what it said."

Than for now, i just call BS for your statement. Sorry.

"I stand by my statement that until recently SCE Japan has not had a lot of games for the PS3. You bring up Demon's Souls, and it was a From Soft game. WKC I and II did not sell well (to their expectations). It was supposed to be a 3 game series, and got pushed back to 2 because of that. "

Demon's Soul is co-developed between Japan Studio and From Soft. And WKC is a 3 game series. The prequel is for PSP (developed by Japan Studio & Matrix Soft):

"From 2005 - 2010, SCE Japan didn't have any high profile games in development for the PS3 (see link http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... They had some good games, but not the high profile games which make Sony their money."

From that wiki link, i stand by my statement that SCE Japan HAD A LOT of games for PS3. UNLIKE your original statement. And lol, now you changed your own statement from "they were pretty weak on PS3 development (overall)." and "but for most of the PS3 gen, they had little to nothing." to "not high profile game".

"You mistake a good game with a game that makes them a huge profit and makes them their money. SONY said that their high profile games for the PS3 were coming from Western development teams for most of the PS3's life cycle."

Oh wow, now those good games from Japan Studio for PS3 suddenly disappear and you only count high profile games that made hugh profit? ROTFL. This is why i hated trolls.

"It's true, and it's what they said. Look at the list... 2005 - 2010. Their games consisted of mostly PSP and PSN titles. The exceptions where 3rd party developed and SCEJ published. As good as those PSN games are, they are not the system sellers God of War and Uncharted are."

You can't provide the link and you keep saying 'it's true what they said'? ROTFL. And Rain for PS3 isn't a PSN games right? Even ICO & SotC also not a system seller. They even sold far below Sony's expectations. But what's the matter dude? Why you keep repeating your false statement?

It was a great move placing him in charge, Sony is really doing everything they can to come out perfect this gen.

This title of this article got me hyped all on its own, would love a PS4 version of Soul Sacrifice or even a new IP from these guys. Action-RPG, JRPG, any kind of RPG with online elements like going on quest together would be great. I wonder what they're going to do?

PS4 has me hyped well into next year, so many games, both announced and unannounced.

TomahawkX1716d ago

Legend of Dragoon sequel perhaps?

listenkids1715d ago

Don't get my heart racing

Fishermenofwar1715d ago

That would be the most bad ass game of all badassery...

Inception1715d ago

Sequel or remake. Whichever than i will buy it in a heartbeat.

Sevir1715d ago

So this is also on top of the collaboration they have with Capcom on Deep Down! :) I'm glad Sony has their External Dev Teams in each major region, Sony XDev in Europe, Studio Japan in Japan, and SCE 3rd Party Production and Sony Santa Monica in NA!

They've got plenty partnerships in play already.

Dark111715d ago

an Open World Soul Sacrifice for PS4!

MAKE IT HAPPEN SONY!!!
