True I can't imagine better publishers than Sony and Nintendo!

True, but problems have been reported that Nintendo doesn't speak English, mean they have to constantly translate.

It's good to see Sony does whatever they can to keep owned studios like Naughty Dog and Sucker Punch happy.
UltimateMaster  +   277d ago
It ain't always easy to run all these studios.

Thanks for the heads up. People should scroll past comment 9, and slowly scroll up and report it for spam. That's what I did, I don't want anyone else's game experience to be spoiled like mine was a while back.

Lol @ disagrees . It's still true , even if they can dump projects , have issues and close studios like everyone else , you'd be hard pressed to find another big console publisher that gives you such creative freedom .

Not ubisoft with even AC's former's creator and main Prince of Persia trilogy driving force , suying and complaining about them .

Certainly not Capcom overworked its ip and key personel to exhaustion and boiling point .

No way would it be EA , closing even criterion studios , reshaping Bioware , and having murdered plenty creative and actually successful studios like Westwood ...

Activision ? When do they even create something ? Once every 3 years ? And remember the scandal behind Infinity war's departure ?

Konami got nobody but kojima left and sits on almost all of their Ips ..

Sega ... hum lol . The only good news recently from them are Yakuza and Miku related , and on the Atlus side , for now .

Square enix ? With their interference and bigger than life expectations ?

Pretty much leaves Take Two , (the too rare) Valve and Bethesda ... and Microsoft of course

Honestly I envy whatever and however much knowledge you have of the gaming industry. I'm a novice.

Dont feel like i got that much ... i'm some old nerd fart playing for eons . Comes easy lol
Bathyj  +   278d ago
Damn Baka, you paint a bleak picture. It surprising were still gaming after 3 decades. Glad I have a Playstation.
Baka-akaB  +   278d ago
Yeah but i kinda have to see it as the circle of gaming life . For every dead Acclaim , Ocean , Infogrames , Sierra , SNK , Hudson Soft , Titus , THQ , you see or aught to see at some point some smaller studios appears , grow and take their place . Some of course will grow complacent or fail in time too , but we shall see .

Besides now we have a strong indie scene , even on console , something we havent seen since the amiga era

It's good to know I'm not the only old fart on here. I've started gaming with pong and never looked back.

That's why I like Sony the most when it comes to manufacturers. They don't put pressure on the devs to rush games out the door and let them do what they want to do. Nothing is worse than a really good game that could've been great or amazing but fell short because of trying to hit a date on the calendar instead of giving us the best most polished product they could've if given more time.

Don't forget EA also killed Pandemic Studios.
Angeljuice  +   278d ago
How would you know? They're talking from a business perspective, I'm pretty sure you've never published anything through Sony, or even been present at any meetings.

Im not being mean, just found your comment odd. No matter how closely you monitor something from an outsiders perspective, you're not going to know the ins and outs of working with one publisher or another.

If you've ever played on a playstation Console since the ps1 days, You can just tell by the various type of games/ new IP's they've release that they clearly do give a lot of creative freedom in comparison to the other publishers. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out.
Angeljuice  +   277d ago
@Army of Darkness

Im fully aware of what your saying, but it is stupid. If you're not in the industry you don't know the ins and outs of what you're talking about. What if you don't get on with the Sony reps on a personal level? It's not much fun having to deal with people who rub you up the wrong way etc.

Just saying there's more to a business relationship than the end result. The fact is that you don't know what it's like working with Sony as a publisher as you've never done it.

P.S. I've had every single PlayStation at launch, I know how good/creative the games can be.

Who cares about the ins and outs. we're gamers and all we should be concerned about is the end result right? cause that's what we're paying for.
jc48573  +   278d ago
wait, isn't Sucker Punch already part of the Sony family?
Mikefizzled  +   278d ago
Yes thats why its a kind of null comment. Employee says boss is amazing. But still somehow becomes an article.
king_george  +   278d ago
It doesnt become null just because Sucker Punch is owned by Sony... its not even like SP are the first to say this either... they're actually like what? The gazillionth?
HeWhoWalks  +   278d ago
It isn't "null", because not all devs give such credit to their publishers. Beyond that, MANY non-Sony devs share the same sentiments.

OT: Which is why I can expect a stellar product this weekend!

Oh really? Is that what you guys do? Go out of your way to shower praise on your boss?

From Wiki
"Sucker Punch Productions is an American production company founded in 1997 and based in Bellevue, Washington. It was an independent company until August 2011, but had worked exclusively with Sony Computer Entertainment since 2000. Sony acquired Sucker Punch on August 2, 2011"

So they became part of Sony because they loved working with them, not they love working with them because they became part of Sony.

Lose the cynicism guys, if it was one dev saying this, maybe you would have a point. Ask Naughty Dog and Media Molecule they will say exactly the same thing.

Hell, ask Quantic Dream and Ready at Dawn, they will say it too no doubt.

A paycheck doesnt obtain loyalty, talent gravitates towards other talent, and no one gives devs the sort of creative freedom Sony does.
truegame  +   278d ago
Remember they were 2nd party and then Sony got them not to long ago.

The main comment he said "Sony gives them allot of Freedom aka rope! to make a game"
exnoob  +   278d ago
Could any one pm, the amount of powers (not what the powers are) that are confirmed in the game please?
Zaiaku  +   278d ago
I've been asking the same question. If you find out let me know please.
Dark11  +   278d ago
I wonder if the ex-sony santa monica staff will share the same opinion.

Help us understand what relevance that would have to Sucker Punch's views of them.

@ Blaze: See the question above.

Cuz no other publisher has ever let any employees go...
ltachiUchiha  +   277d ago
Well RARE is still a 1st party studio to MS yet they weren't too happy being forced to do kinect projects instead of giving them freedom to spread their wings. Because of that most of the talent that was behind RARE have moved on. I think that should tell u the difference between Sony & MS. Those who got layed off or left Naughty Dog or Sony Santa Monica was sad for gamers like myself who love those studios but thats a part of business. Just like any NFL team nowadays. Seattle Seahawks may have won the superbowl but that doesn't guarantee youll have the same squad next year. Its always a rebuilding process. It sucks but it is business.

Off topic: the reporters forehead is legendary.
MidnytRain  +   277d ago
The game seems to be coming along well, but I think it's worth pointing out that talking about Sony while they're working for them would only yield good things anyway. I think it's better to to hear from someone who USED to work with Sony.
