Which Popular PS3 Franchise Do You NOT Want to see on the PlayStation 4?

Considering that this is the last year the PlayStation 3 will have before the PlayStation 4 bursts onto the scene, many franchises will be making the leap to the next generation. At the same time, however, there’s also many that won’t, so we decided to ask the PSLS staff: “Which Popular PS3 Franchise Do You NOT Want to see on the PlayStation 4?” - PSLS

Resistance, that is all

Ezz20132037d ago (Edited 2037d ago )

i say let the dev do what they want and make what they love
i don't want any Popular Franchise this gen to die next gen
because if the dev know that they can bring new things to the table with those games in next gen
then let them try

but i also want to see more new Ips next gen

well, you are right
but dev like ND they moved from Uncharted Franchise to New IP (the last of us) in the same gen
and they are doing what they wanted not what sony told them to do

i hope more Dev be like this
take more risks and try new things

doctorstrange2037d ago

If only it were down to the dev and not the publisher.

As long as Sony doesn't focus and rely SOLELY on just 3 or 4 franchises alone......

But bring a bucket load of new IP's as well.

I see no problem with Sony bringing all of their popular franchises to the PS4.

Oh boy, am I going to get in trouble for saying this but here goes nothing.

First of all, it's not about not seeing it at all. I wouldn't want to deprive myself of a great game just because it had previous titles on PS3. It's more about getting a break, starting to miss a few games. So keeping that in mind here is my list:

Ratchet and Clank
God of War (oh yes I did!)
Little Big Planet
Assassins Creed (oh yes I did... again!)
Resident Evil
Dead Space
Call of (freakin') Duty!

There! I wouldn't mind missing these games for a year or two.

I love Uncharted 3 but I wish there was more of a gap between the second and the third one. I was going crazy to play the second one but the third one, I could have waited for it.

I know this is the PS4 article but I'd want similar stuff on my 720.

HALO - Granted, I don't play HALO at all but I wish MS were to put more focus, energy and more importantly money elsewhere and on other original no-FPS titles. Alan Wake anyone?

Less Kinect games
Gears of War

And third party games such as Assassins Creed, Res. Evil, COD.

Is it too much asking the devs to bring some fresh content to the table? This 'Rinse and Repeat' is not healthy for the industry.

I am glad Quantic Dreams decided not to go for Heavy Rain 2. Instead, they opted for something new and fresh and I tell ya, BEYOND: TWO SOULS is a day one purchase for me.

Similarly, Naughty Dogs are working on what I can only imagine as "my game of current-gen". Every single thing that I have seen about THE LAST OF US, it is just simply brilliant. I know this is way too early to call it but every time I see anything THE LAST OF US, it just gives me that "Oh-this-is-my-game-of-th is-generation!".

LMAO at the typical troll fanboy Zee ^
The guy who hates virtually everything for no other reason than the fact that it's popular. As if new hardware can't inspire new ideas from developers who may have wanted to try things but couldn't due to old hardware limitations.
This is exactly why hipsters don't run companies... or anything else for that matter. Because they make bad decisions, and don't know anything, period.

Resistance still has a ton of potential in my opinion.

Honestly I can't think of anything I wouldn't want on PS4. Just space the games out enough so we don't grow tired of them. I'd love to see Uncharted 4 on PS4 but not for a few years yet, same goes for the next God of war.
Little big planet will have to make a jump to 3D I reckon, after LBP 2 and the Vita version I don't know what other tools they could add, those games are full of content

Imikida2036d ago

I think I remember the devs say that resistance 3 would be their last. So sadly we won't see any more... :(

TheUndertaker852036d ago

The Resistance franchise is owned by Sony, not Insomniac. Insomniac may not be working with Resistance again but other Devs inside Sony may.

jukins2036d ago

totally agree after part 1 it was like eh for part 2 and wtf for 3. let it be over killzone should be the only exclusive fps and im tired of fps!!!!

Ilovetheps42036d ago

I thought Resistance 3 was the best in the series. I really enjoyed Resistance 3. It was tons of fun and I liked the storyline for it.

jukins2036d ago

yea 3 was ok I exaggerated a bit since the story was short and felt segmented but the online was horrid

Ilovetheps42036d ago

Oh, I agree with you on that then. I played the online twice. I was a huge fan of RFoM's online, but I didn't like R3's online.

Root2036d ago (Edited 2036d ago )

Oh I hope Resistance continues

It would be nice if they did a new timeline though and call it "Resistance FALL OF MAN 2". Least then they can fix where they went wrong and give Nathan Hale some better character development.

"Take the controllers away from the CoD fanboys and encourage them to play something else…"

So true...

" I don’t want every game to be compared to Call of Duty or the entirety of the lay person’s knowledge of video games to be Call of Duty. Call of Duty is a plague on games and is holding the industry back from being able to fully blossom. End the corruption and allow for unique, interesting, and diverse content to make it’s way to the PS4. End the generation of the cookie cutter FPS. You cannot claim to be a gamer if your entire video game catalog is Call of Duty."

Couldn't agree more

user76939582036d ago (Edited 2036d ago )

you crazy..?
Resistance has a fun gun play and campaign's, it could be improved into a more complex game.
I will like Insomniac to take notes from KZ3 jet-packs level and use their talent and experience in plataforming to create a new way on playing a fps and bring Resistance into a new level of experience.

I will like devs to transition from a old and new IP giving space to a better continuation of their IP's and not milk it like (kz3,uc3.. great games but just more of the same and even worse somehow, not fresh)

but keep the formula with the original IP and reinvent the formula on your new IP. (don't do what ZIPPER did bringing MAG and ruining SOCOM a game that did not need such a change)

MysticStrummer2036d ago

I wouldn't mind a next gen Resistance title, but it would need to be very different, like a huge open world with many players in it or something like that. I only used that as an example because I'm currently addicted to Defiance, but you get my drift.

I really can't think of a PS franchise I'd rather not see. I don't buy them all, but others buy ones I don't and vice versa so let everyone have their fun.

Unless Lost Planet 3 does shockingly well, I don't think the Lost Planet franchise is going to be on the PS4.

Foolsjoker2037d ago

The snow would look hot though..

BiggCMan2036d ago

Oh the oxymoron in that statement haha.

Bathyj2036d ago

Hey thats not nice. Dont call him that.

/s ;)

Yodagamer2036d ago

as much as i love lost planet, i'm prepared to say lost planet 3 might be a disappointment just because the developer hasn't made a decent game since 04 :/, maybe it will surprise me, but i'm not getting hyped for it till i have it in my hand.

knifefight2037d ago

Final Fantasy. They need to take a time out and think about what they're doing before jumping head first into these projects. Better to reset yourself rather than announce something that you have in development for 8 freaking years before it can even be fully "revealed." =/

DragonKnight2036d ago

They said "Popular PS3 franchises." FF is no longer a PS exclusive, and it wasn't popular this gen.

Welcome2Die2036d ago

Agreed. This gen ruined many great titles...

knifefight2036d ago

It's not about PS3 exclusive franchises, just franchises that ARE on the PS3. Look at the article itself; it talks about Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and yes, even Final Fantasy right in the article. So ah...looks like it still qualifies for comment fodder too. wasn't popular? Versus XIII has been among the most anticipated games this entire gen. People still don't shut up about the FF7 remake and upcoming FFX remaster.
FFXIII, while not having critical acclaim of others in the series, still had outrageous sales. So ah...not sure where you're getting the "not popular" thing either >_>

DragonKnight2036d ago

"Versus XIII has been among the most anticipated games this entire gen."

Anticipation isn't the same as popularity. To be popular generally means to have access to it. The only FF games on the PS3 have been the worst received FF games ever released. FFXIII had great sales because people expected it to be a great game. The first FF of a new gen was always the best possible FF game to come out for that gen but not this time. FFXIII-2 showed what people thought of FFXIII and that they wouldn't be suckered again.

MysticStrummer2036d ago

"It's not about PS3 exclusive franchises, just franchises that ARE on the PS3. Look at the article itself; it talks about Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and yes, even Final Fantasy right in the article. So ah...looks like it still qualifies for comment fodder too."

They should title the article differently then.

I choose none. Because I don't want to get a ton of disagrees, lol!

I kid, but seriously... It's always nice to have a big selection. Just because I wouldn't want to see one certain franchise on it, doesn't mean other people won't want it there.

That's why I tend to like Sony. They put themselves out there, taking risks on games that most wouldn't give the time of day.

You clearly chose the proper path to avoid disagrees. lol

Don't hold back, man. Look at me, I never do. My comments are raw. I don't have 8 bubbles, but I can't think of many times when I've used more than 3 and I always have 4-6 of them to utilize. I backup the things that I say and most people respect me for them.

There's nothing wrong with saying a game needs a break; it doesn't mean that you're chasing games away from people that want them, just expressing an opinion on why it could use some sort of change of pace. I say God of War needs a rest with Ps4; they've bled that storyline dry and haven't done much to improve it.

papashango2036d ago

don't get me wrong. No hard feelings here. Just stating my own opinion.

Snookies122036d ago

Like I said, it's okay man. I was just intending it as a joke and it came out wrong. It happens from time to time. No worries at all.

Foolsjoker2037d ago

Normally, i'd say more games the better, but i really want to see new IPs.
