Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House has spoken out to boast that his company is more committed to creating new intellectual properties than others, though he did not name any names.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Mario is the worst example to use for being creative.
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.
" 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?
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.
@bullymang7er -SIMILAR- a far stretch. -SAME- , what other ND game emphasized stealth and crafting..? please explain.
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.
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.
The people disagreeing with you are fans of watching "movie" games and not real games.
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.
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.
music to my hears but have to see this in action
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
this is factual. sony brought out more quality new IPs this gen than anyone else. period.
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.
That's why I chose Playstation over any other console. The best games are always on Playstation.
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 ;).
I really wish Microsoft had this approach, especially with Alan Wake. I get the impression from Sam Lakes interviews that Microsoft didn't want to fund them if they did a sequel, they wanted a new game which hopefully would sell more instead of letting them improve on the franchise with a sequel. The goal for Quantum Break is what they were aiming for with Alan Wake. We need a sequel with the cliff hanger ending. I really don't see why Remedy are still with Microsoft, do they have something over them or something or is it just because Microsoft pays well?
Exactly, which is really unfortunate. I absolutely loved Alan Wake, but Microsoft didn't let it grow. Just look at games like InFamous and Uncharted. I don't believe either one heated up the sales charts. But Sony saw the foundation of those games and built on it, resulting in huge advancements in IF 2 and Uncharted 2. I believe Alan Wake had the recipe for a potential franchise had it had a chance to build on its foundation. Quantum Break looks amazing. Despite Microsoft not supporting Alan Wake, it does look like they recognize the talent they have under their umbrella. And with Microsoft's attempt to keep up with Sony with exclusives I'm sure they'll throw all their support behind Remedy. As for why they are still with Microsoft, as far as I know Microsoft pays the bills and funds Remedy projects. So though Remedy are not first party, you won't be seeing Alan Wake or Quantum Break on any other console. Hopefully QB comes to PCs like AW.
I really wish when sony makes a new IP they don't keep on using the same gameplay or stories. I'm sick and tired of shooting people and being a middle aged dude saving the world yet again. Boring.......
Oh you mean the same old stories like saving a princess who's been captured for the 100th time by the same old villain and the guy has to go rescue her AGAIN with the exact same types of layouts with each levels/worlds...or what about the story of a hero who is asked again by the pricess to save the kingdom and the world when an evil approaches where he has to go into a ton of dungeons fighting the big boss at the end to get an item which will coincidently help him in the next dungeon. /s You know your Nintendo games you keep defending...the company which has done the same old stuff since 1985/86
Wish ninty released something else other than Mario tire of rescuing the princess :/. OT:can't wait to see some new IP's.
Sony exclusives consist of way more than just shooters. And even then their shooters are different from ordinary shooters.
U say that but u love metroid which is basically the same ole person saving the world. Dont get me wrong, I enjoy nintendo games as much as any other person who grew up playing mario & zelda but the truth is as u grow more mature, those games are still fun to play but for me, i moved on to playstation & xbox because atleast they had new ip's that i wanted to try out. I just feel that despite nintendo being around all these years, they lack in new ip's department. They need to start making new franchises instead of the same franchises with different settings. I know ppl will call me out for that but I honestly think that is a big reason the wii u has been doing bad sales wise. U cant honestly think that these same franchises will always pull u out of a jam especially when their competition is offering more bang for your buck. The gaming industry is evolving & u have to evolve with it, & I think these old franchises are starting to show their age despite being great games but gamers now days want more.
It would be awesome if they move to the ps4 same with gears of war 1 remake . That's the only 2 games i would play from xbox . Gears of war 1 multiplayer have the same feeling of the last of us multiplayer. It's soo good and challenging...
Fortunately Alan Wake 2 is codenamed 37GX1W , these files were registered by Microsoft in 2012 April on the OGP , the project isn't yet executed so don't get your hopes up for now , eventually when it enters the second stage (OEP) , in that case the development will start so expect like a 2017 release , they'll end Quantum Break and after like a month of celebration I believe they'll begin developing Alan Wake 2 , after all Quantum Break was codenamed AA3X9Q and that was registered by Microsoft in 2011 February
Sony nails a balance between keeping the old at heart and the new in mind. Sony's first-party studios are usually the biggest examples. Look at the PS3: Uncharted, Infamous and Resistance right out of the launch gate, with The Last of Us at the tail end and The Order for PS4 in the works. While I'm yearning for a potential Crash Bandicoot revival, I'm equally as excited for The Order. Bring it on, Sony.
Great! However show is better than tell Sony. Announce something soon and I will feel better about my ps4 purchase.
There aren't many exclusive new IPs announced that gamers can be excited for atm. 1886 is the only one that comes to mind.
Yep, exactly what I pointed out above ;) I guess Drive club is a new IP but just doesn't excite me, though hopefully it will be great for racing fans.
InFamous Second Son The Order 1886 Uncharted Driveclub,Rime,Shadow of the Beast,Everybody's Gone into the Rapture, and SOMA. Plus Sony's studios like Media Molecyle ,Santa Monica Studios,Quantic Dream,and Guerrilla Games have confirmed that they are making new PS4 IP's. So when you say there isn't that much exclusives to be excited for you are completely 100% wrong.
GreatnessAwaits I wish people would read my posts instead of getting all hyped. I said "new IPs," and "announced" and "excited." Much of your list... is none of that. EDIT: FYI, there's zero info on Rime, with only a few seconds of footage of a person running around; Shadow of the Beast is a remake from 1989; and SOMA is coming to PC.
Look at PS3 and PSP and tell me Sony didnt' show anything. PS4 has only launched last month. Don't expect new games to flood like how it is like now on the PS3.
Games SHOULD be flooding in, that is how you sell a new platform. The ps4 may be great in a year but it need games now/soon to keep the momentum going.
So which game console do you know have 100's of games flooding on its launch day? Can you name them? AAA games needs time. At least 2 yrs time to complete. They don't just pop-up for your convenience Your expectation is terribly high and unrealistic. Even PC games which is the easiest to make takes just as long as on consoles to complete. Even fruits takes time to grow on tress. Sony has already showed us their games next year and there are more to come from both east and west.
have to say thats the main reason i got the PS4 cause i know sony will make amazing new ips every few years that if not define whatever gner the game is. last order 1886 infamous SS DC UC4 GT7 and list goes on.
Me too. I just wish they would hurry up and get some of them out, or at least announce them. I don't want to wait 6 months until E3 to get excited about my ps4.
Why would they talk about Nintendo like that?
MS tried something new on the X1 it was called DRM. Look how that went over... /s
and not so committed to old ip's like jak and daxter :P (sigh)
What are you talking about? Naughty Dog was working on Jak and Daxter, but decided to go in another direction (The Last of Us). Seems to me like Naughty Dog has no intentions on completely abandoning J&D. They're just not willing to work on it unless it's great.
Exactly what they said in an interview. They were creating new ideas for Jak and Daxter but they felt they were getting to far away from its concept. Perhaps after they start getting tired of Uncharted they will refocus?
Now I loved TLOU as much as everyone else but when was that game a risk? It was made by the most prominent Sony developer so what ever the game was it was going to sell, it is a 3rd person game made by a developer who had just been making a bunch of 3rd person games, and it was set in a post apocalyptic world and featured infected/zombies as a threat and it was released at a time when post apocalyptic and zombie games were everywhere. Not saying any of this hampered my enjoyment of the game I just don't see where the risk was
Judging by the disagrees on ur post ... its clear N4G is ruled by Sony fanboys that cant take even a tiny bit of criticism.
MS has a bad track record of letting too many Exclusives go to PC as well or they eventually go multiplat!
[email protected] Robiton saying "show us" I think people are basing it on PS1/PS2/PS3 which all had its fair share of exclusives.
And not committed to advertising these new IPs properly. yaay!! Too bad Puppeteer bombed.
I think we can't fully blamed sony about that, when we still saw tons of people buying CoD, BF, or yearly release like Fifa, AC, Madden, or Just Dance. So gamers took the blamed too. But i knew it's just a dream when people stop buying CoD and giving their money for fresh IP's such as Puppeteer and Tearaway...
Of course you are? Last generation it was decided that exclusive intellectual property was what determines what the first console a gamer will pick up. Pretty sure Microsoft and Nintendo have the same logic. The only problem is that nintendo rely's too heavily on that idea. The article only mentions two new IPs - the rest are multiplatform.. Your dedication is overwhelming.
I can't wait for da games! Sony bring it, my ps4 is ready! I'm staying busy with AC4, BF4, KZ, NeedFS and Resogun but dam I can't wait for The Order.
"Exclusives" in Micro$ofts mind is 6 to 8 months. From there on it's open season!..."Titan Fall"..."EA".
And that's one of the reasons I'm with Sony, they have more diversity and artistic games while the competition is just about shooters.
This is why PS has always been my primary platform since I was a kid and got a PS2. They always bring variety in their exclusives. And aren't afraid to try something new and different. Generation after Generation they bring new amazing IP's. I got my first PS2 when I was about 6 and got a PS3 when I was 11. And now that I'm 17 I bought my PS4 on launch because I know Sony has the best exclusives. Xbots think they have the games now. When they know MS never keeps up with exclusives.
Can't wait to see what new IPs they come up with next. Greatness Awaits.
Sony has demonstrated to me last gen that they are highly interested in making brand new IPs all gen. And not 3rd party timed exclusive IPS, but 1st party supported quality AAA IPs. Which is a major reason I went with PS4. Uncharted Infamous Last of US Were some of the best games of last gen and were all brand new ips
Yeah brand new IPs with how many sequels already? Personally I'd rather see fewer sequels even if the originals were great games.
They will keep making new ips until they find something half as successful as a Mario or Pokemon.. if and when they do ... that studio will mostly just make sequels to that franchise ala Gran Turismo ... ie the only Sony franchise that sells almost as much as a Mario or Pokemon game. Let the blind sony fanboys "disagrees" come even though I am stating facts
New exclusives, and new IPs It made picking the PS4 a no brainer.
