NowGamer's sister publication Play talks to inFamous 2 dev Sucker Punch about the advantages of being a Sony first-party studio, and how it helped them get the best out of the team for the sequel.
they plan on being bought into the PS Family. Along side Media Molecule.
That could be very interesting, given they'd have untapped resources and financing. Good idea!
I like how they dumbed-down the title for all the noobs and trolls on N4G. From Sucker Punch: 'We Enjoy Being 1st Party' to inFamous Studio: 'We Enjoy Being 1st Party'. Oh what a world we live in.
Jerks. How about giving the Xbox 360 some love? I mean we gave you Bungie (sort of).
bungie hasnt given 'us' squat as of yet.
You got Insomniac for Bungie. If you want Sucker Punch, give us...let's see...damn what else is there?
Lionhead? Rare? 343?
Nope. That's ok. Rare hasn't made a good game since the N64, Lionhead hasn't made anything great since black and white 2 (Im not a fable fan, it's not a bad game its just kinda ho hum) 343 hasn't made anything yet and their going to be working on halo right. Yeah totally don't want a cartoon shooter to play. Also their unproven.
In fairness MS owns those devs. Also, Insomniac is supposedly still working on their previous franchises, and Bungie is about the wash it's hands of Halo.
LMAO... Can't think of any other devs? @ Dramscus ... You just made it worsts.. lol. Despite all the fighting here on N4G, I sure love that you guys give good laughs...
Made it worsts? What?
Well, Remedy are in a similar position with MS to SP with Sony this gen so far-thing is don't people LIKE exclusives any more? Exclusives have REALLY worked well for both sides and I've enjoyed Gears and Uncharted games massively as they manage to eek out more by being fuly focussed on just one platform. SP do actually sound like they want to be more like ND atm, though, so if inFAMOUS2 is amazing expecting to see a Sony purchase might not be out of the question.
Then give us Mass Effect 1-2 :)
How A Abut EPIC Studio's Gears Of Wars 3.lol
As much as I loved Rare as a kid,they haven't given us a single decent game since the N64.
My god they are raping this article for every little ounce of information. They may as well post the entire magazine interview on their site, sorry that wouldn't be conducive to scoring hits though would it.
Me like Sucker Punch. Me like see more game from Suckers Punches. Make me more games, prz.
i'd enjoy it too !
sucker punch don't care with money they only care how to make fans happy and how to make a best game for ps3! so i love it too:D
quantic dream and sucker punch must join other beast studios of game industry of ps family . they are as great as naughty dog and guerilla and santa monica and polyphony
Sucker Punch are a great bunch!! Sony will buy them after Infamous 2.
you do see a trend here. developers seem to like working with and being a part of the sony family. unlike certain other big name publishers who spend must of their time fighting with their studio's.
Did Sony purchase SP on the low or something? last time i checked they were 2nd, well hey the more the more exclusives.
You mean 3rd? 2nd would imply "You" the gamer as being the studio. Which works on LBP and ModNation Racers.
1st party studios are owned by SONY or Microsoft or Nintendo outright. 3rd party studios are completely independent, and usually have no contract of exclusivity. 2nd party studios remain independent, but have contracts with the big guys. This can include publishing rights, assisted development capital and the basic exclusivity contract.
Fanboyism has gone so far that we are discussing studio trades for Sony and Microsoft >_>
Just wait until they start to expect Sony and MS to carry out what they decide. I can see it now... "The Great World Riot of 2012 began when Sony and MS wouldn't trade Lionhead Studios for Media Molecule as discussed in the official Fanboys and Austere Gamers' (Otherwise known as F. A. G., for short) meeting. Outraged, the gamers took to the streets, some of them the first time in years, and began looting. MS and Sony both declined comment."
And bubbles. "F.A.G." Bwahahahahahahaha!
The only thing Sony is missing is having the same high qualaty stodios in Japan, only Team Ico are in the same class.
I'm sorry but you forgot Polyphony (Gran Turismo, hello?), Japan Studio (All sorts of very innovative games like the Eye of Judgment, Patapon series and echochrome). Aren't those enough? If you care, there are more games on Japan's PSN stores than any other regions cause PS3 was the only popular HD console over there where it receives heaps of 3rd party supports.
Can't believe I missed that one, I can only say I'm not a big racing fan, but they will monopolize my dreams if they make a new Omega Boost with the GT5 engine.
Son I am dissapoint
have PD, Team Ico and Japan Studio. If Sony would buy Lvl 5, or From Software. Man, that would be awesome, but it won´t happen
Not From Software. They've always been hit or miss, mostly miss. They make like 5 awful games for every good 1.
Seriously...Sucker Punch created a sweet (Sandbox) title in inFamous... if Sony does aquire them, which I think they will...we may be looking at a (GTA Type of Game) Exclusively for PS. It doesn't nessessarily have to be Urban-Like/Modern-Like.... It could take on a new theme...like what RDR did... Picture a Greek Mythology Sandbox game...based around the times of Achillies & Hector...u guys get the picture... The thought of Sony having Rockstar-Like Developer, isn't bad at all. Game on!
If there's one thing that can be said about sony, without and bias or fanboyism, it's that they let their partners innovate and have creative control. Each system sony has put we've seen new IP's from their partners and some truly imaginative games. Little Big Planet and Heavy Rain are the 2 that come to mind for me.
MMM... let me see I want Chromehounds 2!!!
