Sony Bend's Unannounced PS4 Exclusive Isn't Kill Strain, but "Something Great" - Insider

While it’s known that Sony Bend is working on a PS4 exclusive, Sony has been keeping all details closely under wraps. The descriptions provided in many career opportunity ads have made many think that they’re working on a new Syphon Filter, but according to industry insider Shinobi602 who has proven to know quite a lot on what’s going on behind the scenes at several studios, that isn’t the case.


Update: Shinobi clarified afterwards that he meant that Sony Bend isn't working on Kill Strain. So it's still possible that they're working on Syphon Filter, but their title is not related to the KillStrain Trademark, and it's still something great.

The article has been changed to reflect the update and a change in headline has been requested to the moderators.

Screw It let's just wait til E3 because these insider's are playing with my emotions.

pedrof931318d ago

War of Insiders.

So TIDUX lied ? NO WAY !!!

TIER1xWOLFPACKx1318d ago

I don't think the e3 leak list was from tidux

Abriael1318d ago

It wasn't Tidux, nor he confirmed that part. He confirmed other parts, and since the source of that one said it came from multiple sources, some of it might be right and some not.

ZodTheRipper1318d ago

So insider contradicting insider, great.

thereapersson1318d ago

Remember the days when there was at least a hint of surprise amongst gamers? Thanks to the internet, we know everything before we even know it. I sort of miss the days where we got our information in monthly chunks, actually making E3 something worth looking forward to.

Everyone is eager to spoil everything for everybody else now, and we have information given to us at such an instant, on-demand rate that it's causing more and more of an entitled, impatient mentality amongst modern individuals.

uth111318d ago

There's a fix for that. Avoid clicking on any news item with the words "Insider" "leak" "trademarks" or "upcoming" in the headline :)

abc12331318d ago

Well that's one way to cover your ass with these leaks.

Drithe1317d ago

Oh! It's gonna be something great! yeah. Weve heard that before.

JoGam1318d ago

Thatguy-3101318d ago

*crossing fingers* Eight days

majiebeast1318d ago

8 days would be London studio's.

scott1821318d ago

I'm pretty sure it's Haze 2: return of the nectar.

ThatOneGuyThere1318d ago

i would LOVE an update to Haze.

MYDEATH211318d ago

I want to see some more Big games make an appearance. I like my indies. But I love my triple AAAs.

colonel1791318d ago

I've always have this feeling that the "insider" is Shu! Who else could it be? :P

randomass1711317d ago

Haha, all the rumors... reminds me of E3 last year. :)

Damn something greater my hype is going over 90000!

Abriael1318d ago

you added a "er" there all by yourself :D

candy_mafia1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

Why do I still think it's related to The Getaway/Eight Days? ...I'm guessing it's definitely an open world action game.

Sony London worked on The Getaway series before, but they seem tied up with Project Morpheus right now.

So confusing, can't wait for E3 to clear this up lol :)

ats19921318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

These so called insiders should just stop.

MasterCornholio1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

You hate the thought of Sony having a great E3 right?

Its not the rumors that bother you but the fact that they might be true.

Just deal with it insiders will always exist and some of them will leak valid information while others won't.

Its something you have to live with and if you dont like it just stop using the internet. Easy solution.


thereapersson1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

You gotta admit Master, this leak / spoiler behavior is getting worse as the days go by...

MasterCornholio1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )


I agree the closer we get to E3 the more violent the trolls will get. Happens every year.

Edit: Oh you meant the leakers. Meh just take everything with a grain of salt and you'll be fine.

randomass1711317d ago

@MasterCornholio Actually I think he was just saying 'less rumors and more announcements.' Not exactly unreasonable to request and there's no bias against Sony when requesting it.

ZodTheRipper1318d ago

It's ridiculous for a while now but it seems like we don't have anything else at the moment. E3 has to hurry up already...

candy_mafia1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )


Well what do you expect???

E3 is around the corner and the leaks are going into overload. The leaks can only really come from 'Insiders'.

The developers/publishers themselves won't tell you, and wouldn't you as a gamer like to know? IMO Rumour/Insider news is better than NO news at all ;/

BlakHavoc1318d ago

Not syphon filter? Kind of bummed about that but honestly I'm still excited for whatever they have. But if true this also proves the e3 list if fake.

shivvy241318d ago

Very disappoint
Much sad
Not wow

randomass1711317d ago

Bummer indeed. Syphon Filter is very much in need of a new installment or reboot.

BlakHavoc1317d ago

I guess it still has a chance of being syphon filter it's just not related to the kill strain trademark.

Relientk771318d ago

I hope their next game is a new Syphon Filter
