Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House has spoken out to boast that his company is more committed to creating new intellectual properties than others, though he did not name any names.
That's what I like. Taking chances and trying something new that could turn out to be something amazing.
little big planet, the last of us, journey... the list goes on they were never afraid to try something new
They were concerned about LBP but decided to take the chance.
Agreed, there are so many random original ideas from within Sony or supported by them. Stuff so off-the-wall and creative, you wouldn't expect it from anyone else.
@dcj0524 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.
@Inception: I approve. Bubble, good sir.
Beyond two souls, Heavy Rain, Tearaway, Puppetteer, Flowers, Rain, Shadow of colossus, Ico, Resogun etc..
don't forget the risks they take with things like Wonderbook, and also bringing back classics like Sly. PlayStation!!!
Don't forget Ni No Khuni
Sony is for gamers. While Nintendo and Microsoft rehash the same games to make money first and cheaper overhead.
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)
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.
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.
@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.
Halo was on Mac. And it was not an RTS. It was Halo Combat evolved.
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
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!
Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!
New exclusive 1st party IPs saved the PS3.
great article, yet they bring nothing to the table ... they sold everyone a game console ... and no games. they showed zero games at vgx while ms rocked out w games. but hey i guess an article for sony new ip's will suffice..... said noone ever.
If by rocked out you mean showing a few games everyone knew about, and zero gameplay then yes MS rocked out
Keep telling yourself that. One day you might actually start to believe it.
Hate to break it to you, but there aren't any more games available right now on xbone than there are on PS4. Go back to your bridge.
^^^I just bought peggle and halo Spartan ass. Is coming as well. but I get what you're saying.. You're just selective
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.
TLOU is a great example.They took a risk and it paid off.Hell a lot of people say it's their Game Of The Generation. Let's see what SOny has in store for the PS4 as New IP'S.Let's get some RPG'S in there SOny.
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.
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. Please don't compare Super Mario with TLOU.....
Paraphrasing Shigeru Miyamoto: new characters do not make a game new. We start with new gameplay ideas and pick the characters that are best suited to the game
Lol, same gameplay? There has never been a multiplayer experience like it. I'd argue with you, but your trolling has left you with only one bubble.
Sony are committed to new game ideas. Games like Journey, Shadow of the Colossus, Unfinished Swan, Sound Shapes, LBP, Rain etc would never appear on any other console.
Mario is the worst example to use for being creative.
That's just one aspect of IP. What you are referring to is trademark which is as some of the other people said not the entire story.
" take the last of US for example, new IP SAME gameplay" As usual, you're trying way too hard. In what parallel universe does it have the "SAME" gameplay?
New Super Mario Bros DS, Wii, 3DS and Wii U are like COD games. TLOU is not the "SAME" gameplay. Different gameplay elements and mechanics, story, plot, characters, theme.
@bullymang7er -SIMILAR- a far stretch. -SAME- , what other ND game emphasized stealth and crafting..? please explain.
its apparent that sony likes to play it safe. its also apparent they like to release games a year after their release date , i have yet to see any new footage of" the last guardian". maybe on my death bed.
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.
The people disagreeing with you are fans of watching "movie" games and not real games.
I've played every console back to the NES. TLoU is unique.
To be fair, Naughty Dog could've went to the Sony executives with a picture of a Shark and a Dog fighting evil together, and would've gotten a green light.
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.
music to my hears but have to see this in action
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. I can guarantee that at the end of this generation the PS4 will have more and better IP's than the competition, just like the PS3 did.
I agree but Sony needs to show us this. At the moment there is barely anything announced outside of The Order:1886, and there's little info on that. I know things will improve with time but I have a ps4 now. Give me something to get excited about, e3 is too far away.
loool...we are getting a guarantee from a nobody from N4G board. Underestimating the competition will make Sony dumb down the amount of exclusives. Of course I will not say it a guarantee like an idiot.
yes I know and agree with you. im still waiting on the last guardian. sometimes their ip's dont get enough publicity or advertisement like puppeteer great game and tear away which will be one the first games I get for the vita. what's with all the dislikes? I just think actions speak louder than words
Look out everyone, we got Spurg "My Butt Is In Agony" McBad*** over here calling people nobodies and idiots. God forbid that someone use certain words in his presence.
this is factual. sony brought out more quality new IPs this gen than anyone else. period.
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.
That's why I chose Playstation over any other console. The best games are always on Playstation.
You won't get as much variety anywhere else to be fair. On my personal gaming variety situation, hoping to get Puppeteer for Christmas. Let's hope I've been a good lil thread poster this year ;).
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?
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.
I really wish when sony makes a new IP they don't keep on using the same gameplay or stories. I'm sick and tired of shooting people and being a middle aged dude saving the world yet again. Boring.......
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. /s You know your Nintendo games you keep defending...the company which has done the same old stuff since 1985/86
Wish ninty released something else other than Mario tire of rescuing the princess :/. OT:can't wait to see some new IP's.
Sony exclusives consist of way more than just shooters. And even then their shooters are different from ordinary shooters.
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.
It would be awesome if they move to the ps4 same with gears of war 1 remake . That's the only 2 games i would play from xbox . Gears of war 1 multiplayer have the same feeling of the last of us multiplayer. It's soo good and challenging...
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
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.
Great! However show is better than tell Sony. Announce something soon and I will feel better about my ps4 purchase.
There aren't many exclusive new IPs announced that gamers can be excited for atm. 1886 is the only one that comes to mind.
