TLOU is a great example.They took a risk and it paid off.Hell a lot of people say it's their Game Of The Generation.

Let's see what SOny has in store for the PS4 as New IP'S.Let's get some RPG'S in there SOny.

BullyMangler1765d ago

but thats the thing, a new IP does not guarantee new gameplay. take the last of US for example, new IP SAME gameplay. Veteran gamers are not easily impressed.

Just look at the new Mario world for wiiU, same IP, but NEW INVENTIVE CREATIVE never before seen gameplay mechanics.

Sony needs to stop trying to trick noobs by saying "we offer new IP's unlike the competition" . because a veteran gamer knows that new IP does not mean new gameplay.

GarrusVakarian1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

New gameplay isn't the only aspect of a new IP. What i want from a new IP is new characters to get attached too, new game worlds/universes to get attached too, a good story to get attached too.

Please don't compare Super Mario with TLOU.....


Paraphrasing Shigeru Miyamoto: new characters do not make a game new. We start with new gameplay ideas and pick the characters that are best suited to the game

Clover9041765d ago

Lol, same gameplay? There has never been a multiplayer experience like it. I'd argue with you, but your trolling has left you with only one bubble.

grassyknoll1765d ago

Sony are committed to new game ideas. Games like Journey, Shadow of the Colossus, Unfinished Swan, Sound Shapes, LBP, Rain etc would never appear on any other console.

Razjin1765d ago

Mario is the worst example to use for being creative.

MrCrimson1765d ago

That's just one aspect of IP. What you are referring to is trademark which is as some of the other people said not the entire story.

SilentNegotiator1765d ago

" take the last of US for example, new IP SAME gameplay"

As usual, you're trying way too hard. In what parallel universe does it have the "SAME" gameplay?

ShinMaster1765d ago

New Super Mario Bros DS, Wii, 3DS and Wii U are like COD games.

TLOU is not the "SAME" gameplay. Different gameplay elements and mechanics, story, plot, characters, theme.

sAVAge_bEaST1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )


-SIMILAR- a far stretch.

-SAME- , what other ND game emphasized stealth and crafting..? please explain.

FANTA11801765d ago

its apparent that sony likes to play it safe.

its also apparent they like to release games a year after their release date , i have yet to see any new footage of" the last guardian".

maybe on my death bed.

DigitalHope1765d ago

We live in a time of recycling ideas. New gameplay is hard to find these days and we have a tendency to chastise those who try to invent new gameplay through means other than a screen, console, and standard controller.

New IPs bring new stories, characters and adventures while tweaking the gameplay we already love. We don't need crazy new gameplay you'll hate anyways. Just new methods of implementing what we already love.

Loadedklip1765d ago

The people disagreeing with you are fans of watching "movie" games and not real games.

frostypants1765d ago

I've played every console back to the NES. TLoU is unique.

To be fair, Naughty Dog could've went to the Sony executives with a picture of a Shark and a Dog fighting evil together, and would've gotten a green light.

rainslacker1765d ago

Sony actually asked ND to changed Uncharted into what it was. They originally wanted to do something more fantasy oriented.

However, I believe over the course of the generation, ND has a lot more say so in their games than they used to. But in the end they are still owned and run by Sony.

lonewolfjedi1765d ago

music to my hears but have to see this in action

GarrusVakarian1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

We already have seen this action for the past 2 decades almost....where have you been? Sony has always been very committed, invested and supporting of their IP's....they don't just throw money at them like other companies do.

I can guarantee that at the end of this generation the PS4 will have more and better IP's than the competition, just like the PS3 did.

robtion1765d ago

I agree but Sony needs to show us this. At the moment there is barely anything announced outside of The Order:1886, and there's little info on that.

I know things will improve with time but I have a ps4 now. Give me something to get excited about, e3 is too far away.

Spurg1765d ago

loool...we are getting a guarantee from a nobody from N4G board.

Underestimating the competition will make Sony dumb down the amount of exclusives. Of course I will not say it a guarantee like an idiot.

lonewolfjedi1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

yes I know and agree with you. im still waiting on the last guardian. sometimes their ip's dont get enough publicity or advertisement like puppeteer great game and tear away which will be one the first games I get for the vita.

what's with all the dislikes? I just think actions speak louder than words

KillrateOmega1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

Look out everyone, we got Spurg "My Butt Is In Agony" McBad*** over here calling people nobodies and idiots.

God forbid that someone use certain words in his presence.

arbitor3651765d ago

this is factual. sony brought out more quality new IPs this gen than anyone else. period.

ltachiUchiha1765d ago

Exactly. Proof in the pudding is why are most indie devs flocking to the ps4 then the one? Its because sony gives devs more freedom with new ip's where microsoft will most likely pass on alot of these new projects if they feel it wont sell. Alan Wake & Lost Odyssey are proof that if new ip's dont sell, dont expect a sequel any time soon compared to gears & halo & forza which had many sequels in the 360 life span.

TheFallenAngel1765d ago

That's why I chose Playstation over any other console. The best games are always on Playstation.

pyramidshead1765d ago

You won't get as much variety anywhere else to be fair.

On my personal gaming variety situation, hoping to get Puppeteer for Christmas. Let's hope I've been a good lil thread poster this year ;).
