Sony Bend's Unannounced PS4 Game to Include "Complex Human AI Behaviors;" Based on Unreal Engine

During the launch ceremony of the PS4, SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida teased an unannounced PS4 project by Sony’s Oregon-based Bend Studio, but nothing was announced about it since and the project is being kept closely under wraps.

Today an interesting career opportunity ad has been published by Sony, looking for a Senior AI Programmer for the bend studio, and it gives us some very interesting information on said game.

As much as I would love a console Syphon Filter from these guys I hope they are able to go the same route as Ready at Dawn and have a go at creating a new IP.

pedrof933762d ago

Why ?

If a Syphon Filter comes up, it would be amazing.

TomShoe3762d ago

E3 is going to be amazing.

I expect great things from Bend. Uncharted: Golden Abyss is one of the best games of all time on Vita, now imagine what they can do with the power of the PS4.

Vandamme213762d ago

I met to agree with u...but I accidently press disagree.

SonyStyled3762d ago

yes but a reboot of syphon filter would probably be a bust. i just dont see it selling well. look at twisted metal for example. the original fanbase grew up and or doesnt play games anymore. it flopped. given there are several franchises i believe would sell quite well as a reboot. maybe syphon filter would. but i tend to believe it wouldnt be a good business decision

DeadlyFire3762d ago

@Styled, but they changed Twisted Metal into a competitive thing when they rebooted it. Instead of fun crazyness that it used to be. That is why it flops.

If they simply updated Syphon Filter and kept its originality it would work. Either way New IP or reboot is a risk to some extent.

They ruined TM by forgetting to put CHARACTERS into it.
A new Syphon Filter would be interesting but NOT ON UNREAL ENGINE PLEASE.

RedDeadLB3762d ago

But part of what made Syphon Filter was the fact that it was difficult to control the player. You could drive a tank after playing Syphon Filter with no issues whatsoever.

I played some two player deathmatch yesterday. The fact that it's so difficult to hit a target was part of the charm of Syphon Filter, on top of excellent single player missions.

I don't think that the Syphon Filter reboot would be a lot like Syphon Filter. It just can't. The times are different, gaming is different. It would be able to escape the clutches of being a typical third person shooter nowadays. Maybe if they made it hyper-realistic, meaning that you have to be extra careful not to get shot.. Maybe then..

Gamer19823762d ago

Syphon Filter.. Its been so long since the last main game it would basically be a new IP.. I think with old gmes like this the reason they don't come back is because they are afraid if they dive bomb they will ruin the brand name and what people think of the company which is true in most respects. But my answer to that is MAKE A GREAT GAME. :)

Whatever it is, I doesn't matter. More games = More happiness.

That's what matters.

BabyTownFrolics3762d ago

Here opinions matter more than games

Muzikguy3762d ago

I hope we get both, a new IP and a new Syphon Filter. I loved those games

Sounds Like Stealth


It's Syphon Filter!!!

Relientk773762d ago

Please be a new Syphon Filter

Conzul3762d ago

You, me, and like four other people want R4.
Doubt it's gonna happen, bud.

deathisgamesok3762d ago

I'm one of those four other people then.

Kavorklestein3762d ago

Yeah, it's not gonna happen. If Killzone ShadowFall isn't even that wanted/needed, then a next gen Resistance is definitely out of the question lol Just saying...
Resistance existed PURELY to come out and (try)to battle the sales of Gears of War in 2006, and it started off bad, and ended bad, Gears of War isn't even the greatest either, but Resistance would be a very poor placement of assets and talent for Sony. Especially if we were to talk about interested install base and return on expenses to produce.

MysticStrummer3762d ago

"Resistance existed PURELY to come out and (try)to battle the sales of Gears of War in 2006"

Not sure how you arrived at this conclusion, but I doubt it.

Kavorklestein3762d ago

Think about it... It reeked of poor quality in almost all aspects, (like a rushed product does) I mean, sure it was playable, but I mean Really? It was not anything special... and we didn't really see or hear anything about it's development till RIGHT before it came out.. AND, it was launched on the EXACT SAME DAY IN THE SAME MONTH as Gears of War... Meanwhile, every magazine and internet article had a piece about Gears, it was guaranteed to be the big dog on the block from the get go with how much attention it got.. and that multiplayer... still some of the best for tough and engaging there is.. I STILL go back every once in a while to play it.. nobody I know even has any of their copies of any of the Resistance games anymore.. They lack very much luster to say the least...

andrewsqual3762d ago

@Kavorklestein Lol Resistance selling 2 million units is bad? 40 player online with 0 lag was bad in 2006???

MysticStrummer3761d ago

I don't need to think about it. Your theory is ridiculous. Resistance was in development before anyone knew how well Gears would do, and just because you didn't know about it doesn't mean "we" didn't know about it… unless you're referring to the voices in your head when you say "we". I knew about Resistance well before it released. It was a lot of fun. I played through it multiple times, both co-op and solo, and the multiplayer was fun too, not groundbreaking, but fun. It didn't "reek" of poor quality, it was a launch title, and a very fun one at that. I would definitely be interested in R4.

kreate3761d ago

Resistance was received top scores across the board.5/5 and 10/10.

Game informer gave it a 9.5/10
If u read the game informer review, it had nothing but praises about the game.

I hope not, Resistance games are just no good imo.i got first one with motorstorm and ps3 in a bundle...sold both games and got me oblivion.and though i re-bought motorstorm, which i came to like quite much, playing res.1&2 and a bit of 3 just showed me that i was right-there is nothing i like.so next resist. is a big no-no for me.
