Sony London Hires Crytek Developers to Expand Art Team

VRFocus - Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) London Studio has expanded its art team to include former Crytek developers, it has been revealed. The appointments were made to help flesh out the team, which animated the developer’s The Deep tech demo for that Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset on PlayStation 4. It’s not yet clear what the team are now working on with the headset, though it did announce a new Singstar title for PlayStation 4 today.

Yes. Singstar has a core fanbase. Great party game together with Buzz.

I dunno about that. Then again, my friends and I aren't your typical American gamers.

Lol, only on N4G will people disagree with you for asking a legitimate question. Bless your hearts.

26 million seller franchise.May not be mine or your cup of tea but it sells well

Bennibop1608d ago

26million copies sold, so yes it does! Plus that does not include individually sold tracks, must be a massive money spinner for sony.

kaileb1608d ago

And some of those song's artist are from sony music group, all the money are going in there pocket with out paying license fee...

Urm I don't think the disc based version have sold well recently (Vol 3 did but I think the sales dropped off after that but it has sold 26 million copies as a franchise). Honestly I doubt there's much money (apart from licensing) that goes into a game like this. Also I think, despite low (but steady/reliable)sales, the songs packs do quite well
