And it paid off. User content creation was nothing new, but LittleBigPlanet brought it to the forefront, especially for consoles. Brings a whole new meaning to the term "sandbox" game.

Let's face it, games like Spark wouldn't probably exist if LittleBigPlanet was never made nor blew up in popularity like it did. LittleBigPlanet proved a couple things -- new formulas can work and it terms of its formula it REALLY works.

Yes, sony doesn't scare to take risk for new IP. But, i hope more PS gamer WILL SUPPORT and BUY The Puppeteer and Tearaway. Both are amazing games but right now they're selling like crap.

We need more games like Puppeteer and Tearaway and less of CoD.

Sony is for gamers. While Nintendo and Microsoft rehash the same games to make money first and cheaper overhead.
DOMination-  +   206d ago
What has ms rehashed other than halo and maybe forza? Gears is epic not ms and I literally can't think of anything else so that's two ips.

Killzone
Ratchet (sony owned despite third party developer)
LBP (+lbp karting)
Syphon Filter
Twisted Metal
Socom
GT
Resistance
Eyepet
Singstar
Buzz
Uncharted

Sony make some amazing games new ip or not but don't give me that crap about how they are for the gamers and are the kings of new ip when the list above is a small amount off the top of my head of ip with at least 4 games (many have more)
rainslacker  +   207d ago
MS did that way back in the day too. They got Halo out of it. Sometimes taking risks pays off big time.

Sony is so diverse, they can afford to have one of their big staples fail and still come out ahead, because they don't put all their eggs in one basket, and they always push new IP's to try and find the next big thing.
curtis92  +   207d ago
MS signed bungie after Halo was already being made. Not really taking a chance when you can already see how the game is shaping up as opposed to backing a CONCEPT of a game.
Volkama  +   207d ago
@Curtis Halo was being made as an RTS game for the Mac when MS snapped them up...

On-topic, everyone is out to establish new IPs at the moment. Look at Ubisoft's ambition for Watchdogs/Crew/Division.

New console release is just a great time to do it because there isn't a huge market for the sequels to capitalise on, so the investment in the platform is more worthwhile than the 'safe' IP.

The validity in Sony's claim is that they will keep supporting new IPs when the consoles are getting old and tired. It'll mean more in 4 or 5 years time.
Gremdude  +   206d ago
Halo was on Mac. And it was not an RTS. It was Halo Combat evolved.
Rainstorm81  +   206d ago
I thought Halo was being developed for PS2 and they ended up getting bought up by MS.

Oni released on PS2 by Bungie and Halo was supposed to come afterwards
Volkama  +   206d ago
Halo RTS:
http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/...

It's only a wiki, but it's enough to show I'm not making up stories out of nothing :)

@Gremdude it wasn't 'Halo: Combat Evolved' before MS purchased Bungie. It was just Halo until MS insisted on the name change, and Bungie were not happy about it at the time.

Useless knowledge, but sometimes I have trouble choosing what not to remember!

Each new IP is potential for a possible new series or Franchise to be born.

Square Enix Finally got it with Bravely Default, and others I think are catching on to what we the gamers, have been saying for years.

The Dev's are finally able to get it through the people's heads at the top of these companies that we need more new IP's.

bullymangLer  +   207d ago
but thats the thing, a new IP does not guarantee new gameplay. take the last of US for example, new IP SAME gameplay. Veteran gamers are not easily impressed.

Just look at the new Mario world for wiiU, same IP, but NEW INVENTIVE CREATIVE never before seen gameplay mechanics.

Sony needs to stop trying to trick noobs by saying "we offer new IP's unlike the competition" . because a veteran gamer knows that new IP does not mean new gameplay.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   207d ago
New gameplay isn't the only aspect of a new IP. What i want from a new IP is new characters to get attached too, new game worlds/universes to get attached too, a good story to get attached too.

PassiveAttack  +   206d ago
We live in a time of recycling ideas. New gameplay is hard to find these days and we have a tendency to chastise those who try to invent new gameplay through means other than a screen, console, and standard controller.

New IPs bring new stories, characters and adventures while tweaking the gameplay we already love. We don't need crazy new gameplay you'll hate anyways. Just new methods of implementing what we already love.

rainslacker  +   207d ago
Sony actually asked ND to changed Uncharted into what it was. They originally wanted to do something more fantasy oriented.

However, I believe over the course of the generation, ND has a lot more say so in their games than they used to. But in the end they are still owned and run by Sony.

We already have seen this action for the past 2 decades almost....where have you been? Sony has always been very committed, invested and supporting of their IP's....they don't just throw money at them like other companies do.

ltachiUchiha  +   207d ago
Exactly. Proof in the pudding is why are most indie devs flocking to the ps4 then the one? Its because sony gives devs more freedom with new ip's where microsoft will most likely pass on alot of these new projects if they feel it wont sell. Alan Wake & Lost Odyssey are proof that if new ip's dont sell, dont expect a sequel any time soon compared to gears & halo & forza which had many sequels in the 360 life span.

-Foxtrot  +   207d ago
I really wish Microsoft had this approach, especially with Alan Wake. I get the impression from Sam Lakes interviews that Microsoft didn't want to fund them if they did a sequel, they wanted a new game which hopefully would sell more instead of letting them improve on the franchise with a sequel.

The goal for Quantum Break is what they were aiming for with Alan Wake. We need a sequel with the cliff hanger ending.

I really don't see why Remedy are still with Microsoft, do they have something over them or something or is it just because Microsoft pays well?
#6 (Edited 207d ago ) | Agree(19) | Disagree(5) | Report | Reply
Clover904  +   207d ago
Exactly, which is really unfortunate. I absolutely loved Alan Wake, but Microsoft didn't let it grow. Just look at games like InFamous and Uncharted. I don't believe either one heated up the sales charts. But Sony saw the foundation of those games and built on it, resulting in huge advancements in IF 2 and Uncharted 2. I believe Alan Wake had the recipe for a potential franchise had it had a chance to build on its foundation.

Quantum Break looks amazing. Despite Microsoft not supporting Alan Wake, it does look like they recognize the talent they have under their umbrella. And with Microsoft's attempt to keep up with Sony with exclusives I'm sure they'll throw all their support behind Remedy.

As for why they are still with Microsoft, as far as I know Microsoft pays the bills and funds Remedy projects. So though Remedy are not first party, you won't be seeing Alan Wake or Quantum Break on any other console. Hopefully QB comes to PCs like AW.

Oh you mean the same old stories like saving a princess who's been captured for the 100th time by the same old villain and the guy has to go rescue her AGAIN with the exact same types of layouts with each levels/worlds...or what about the story of a hero who is asked again by the pricess to save the kingdom and the world when an evil approaches where he has to go into a ton of dungeons fighting the big boss at the end to get an item which will coincidently help him in the next dungeon.

U say that but u love metroid which is basically the same ole person saving the world. Dont get me wrong, I enjoy nintendo games as much as any other person who grew up playing mario & zelda but the truth is as u grow more mature, those games are still fun to play but for me, i moved on to playstation & xbox because atleast they had new ip's that i wanted to try out. I just feel that despite nintendo being around all these years, they lack in new ip's department. They need to start making new franchises instead of the same franchises with different settings. I know ppl will call me out for that but I honestly think that is a big reason the wii u has been doing bad sales wise. U cant honestly think that these same franchises will always pull u out of a jam especially when their competition is offering more bang for your buck. The gaming industry is evolving & u have to evolve with it, & I think these old franchises are starting to show their age despite being great games but gamers now days want more.

Fortunately Alan Wake 2 is codenamed 37GX1W , these files were registered by Microsoft in 2012 April on the OGP , the project isn't yet executed so don't get your hopes up for now , eventually when it enters the second stage (OEP) , in that case the development will start so expect like a 2017 release , they'll end Quantum Break and after like a month of celebration I believe they'll begin developing Alan Wake 2 , after all Quantum Break was codenamed AA3X9Q and that was registered by Microsoft in 2011 February
SpiralTear  +   207d ago
Sony nails a balance between keeping the old at heart and the new in mind. Sony's first-party studios are usually the biggest examples. Look at the PS3: Uncharted, Infamous and Resistance right out of the launch gate, with The Last of Us at the tail end and The Order for PS4 in the works.

While I'm yearning for a potential Crash Bandicoot revival, I'm equally as excited for The Order. Bring it on, Sony.

AAA games needs time. At least 2 yrs time to complete. They don't just pop-up for your convenience Your expectation is terribly high and unrealistic. Even PC games which is the easiest to make takes just as long as on consoles to complete. Even fruits takes time to grow on tress.

Now I loved TLOU as much as everyone else but when was that game a risk?
It was made by the most prominent Sony developer so what ever the game was it was going to sell, it is a 3rd person game made by a developer who had just been making a bunch of 3rd person games, and it was set in a post apocalyptic world and featured infected/zombies as a threat and it was released at a time when post apocalyptic and zombie games were everywhere.

Not saying any of this hampered my enjoyment of the game I just don't see where the risk was

Picnic  +   207d ago
Microsoft have always tried something new, whether in conjunction with third parties or not.

It's just not always sold massively.

Jet Set Radio Future (a sequel but still the only place to play that game which is more user friendly than the original in gameplay).

Blinx: The Timesweeper and other mascots.

Grabbed by the ghoulies.

Project Gotham Racing.

Forza

Fable

Blue Dragon

Alan Wake

Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. Made in to a primarily vehicle construction/racing game making it, in essence, a new game.

Ryse

Killer Instinct- long awaited sequel with reviews that only downscore it for length. So different from the last incarnation in graphics can be regarded as a new 'reboot' game series.

-
Coming up..

Sunset Overdrive

Quantum Break

Project Spark

-
Sony do win for exclusives but they are sometimes arguably overkill (e.g. they'll have 2 games of similar gameplay type).

Microsoft are unpredictable in output and their most interesting games often don't sell all that well. It might partly explain why Kinect became a focus for them. But they need to get some Nintendo-like wacky Kinect games- Microsoft are becoming a bit too middle America staid.
