Very little is known about SCE London Studio's unannounced PS4 game besides the fact that it'll be done in Unreal and will involve vehicles. Today it's been revealed that it'll make heavy use of outsourcing for the creation of its art assets.
All sounds Great. Can't wait to play it.
I'm still wondering if it's a new Getaway. The fact that they need to outsource a lot of assets could definitely point to an open world game. But maybe it's just my wishful thinking.
Hopefully I think we need an open world game using London or the UK in general as a setting. It will be the UK GTA since Rockstar have said they are never venturing out the US again.
Hopefully , I really loved the first two and don't forget they said Getaway 3 wasn't cancelled but put on hold!! :D
If it's not a new Getaway game I'll be seriously pissed. I loved the getaway games and holy sh*t (pardon my language) it would look beautiful on next-gen. Especially since it would be developed by a first-party studio.
my thoughts exactly =p
I was literally, just playing Black Monday yesterday and hoping The Getaway 3 would be picked up again after being disappointed by the news years ago about it's "on hold" status. It was too bad some gamers alway tried to compare this to GTA and stuff and say it sucked, but they're both great series.
Exactly what i'm thinking, and hoping.
Oh man, PLEASE let it be that Getaway game that we saw in the PS3 trailer, that's based in Amsterdam. https://www.youtube.com/wat... It looked awesome and gritty, like TLOU.
I guess I was the only one thinking it was a new IP? Another Getaway though... sounds fascinating. :D
I think the article is wrong. I believe its using the unity engine not unreal 4. Add to that this studios recent history and its obvious they are working on casual stuff. Doesn't mean its bad but it won't be 8 days or the getaway.
Good point! I smell an epic remake of Wonderbook: Book of Spells on the PS4!
Oy vai. I sure hope not.
Great stuff, lets hope its a new Getaway.
E3 cannot come soon enough ! obviously, it's Siphon Filter reboot !
Doubtful, that'd be Sony Bend, on the other side of the ocean :D
Sony Bend is busy remaking their first game, Columbo's Mystery Capers, anyway.
Some real high quality games coming only on Ps4. A nextgen getaway will be awesome but whatever it is will be great I'm sure
I know this is just hype but it gets me excited about titles coming. E3 should be exciting this year
Me too man! E3 is going to be killer this year!
Ready for anything and everything they're making!
Less talk more Action.. oh wait this is not a xbox article. Go Sony!
Difference is it's not actually Sony saying this, it's just someone reporting off a listing for their website to tell us what the studio could/might be doing allowing us to speculate.
Pretty sure it's Microsoft or Microsoft first party devs who go on more about the stupid cloud.
I Like how you guys spend more time attacking N4G rather than adressing the article verrrrrry productive of you(•ิ_•ิ).
Poor guy. Mind so corrupted by your peers, that you'd rather instigate that kind of conversation rather than talk about the article.
I kinda agree with ya (even tho you sound mad to me o.o) people getting exited by a job list? Lol I wont be excited about stuff like this, nor how realistic a game look. Beauty (colorful etc) and gameplay all I care for
I own an Xbox One. I love it. I do support Microsoft. However... if Sony do the right thing and actually bring out a new Getaway like they meant to on the PS3. I will buy a PS4. Those games were amazing.
Outsourcing huh? Am I the only one bothered by that? I mean, yeah it's good for saving money because you after the project is complete the person is no longer involved, but what about in-house talent? I'd think Sony has enough talented artists to work on any projects, they have so many different studios.
The other in-house artists are working on other projects.
I find it hard to believe that every other artist is currently involved in some project or another. Furthermore, you'd think that they'd wait until other projects are finished and give their own employees more work to do. It's taking away jobs from the people they already have. If everybody used outsourced talent, what would the point be in having in-house studios? I'd be worried if my employer start outsourcing.
i dunno , maybe would be better to have in house talent .... yes but didnt gran turismo outsource to do the cars because it was taking to long? this could speed up the process a bit as long as long as strict quality controls are in place in my opinion.
Wipeout used 3rd party for art/design.... Someone has to be working on Wipeout ps4... Was developed in uk by studio liverpool/psygnosis
That's one of my greatest wish, wipeout ps4 plzzzzzzzz pre-order full price deluxe plat edition for me please
Outsourcing is done all of the time though. Some great content has been outsourced before. Not all of it has been bad (thankfully).
Hopefully its Getaway 3. But I'm not gonna get my hopes up for E3 like I do every year and end up disappointed.
Originally being from the outskirts of London, I can say that while the Getaway games were OK, they were far from accurately depicting the city. I get why people want to make a game there. It's a popular, heavily populated city. The problem is though, and one most people seem to forget - London is on such an incredibly small scale. At least compared to the big cities of America (I now live in the States) The roads are too narrow and tiny, the traffic would constantly be a problem. The only way they'd address this is by severely reducing the amount of vehicles and pedestrians that populate the games city - and by extension, completely fail at selling it as being London. It's just too populated of a city on such a small scale to really work in my opinion. That said, New York is incredibly populated and they've worked with GTA. But again, the scale is so much greater than England. Driving would be a huge bitch. But eh, maybe they'll pull it off somehow.
OMFG!!!!!! This is worse than Epics "High End" game, lol. LOL, the descriptions used for these upcoming games is hilarious.
Yes! Sony is bringing back Wonderbook!
No. Absolutely not. It's gotta be something bigger and more broad.
woot woot. haha cant' wait for E3 man, come on E3
Can't wait to see what it is.
I hope it's the getaway! i definitely liked the first one, but never got the chance to play the getaway: black monday. :(
The Getaway: Eight Days or nothing at all...I wouldn't mind another open world crime game based in real-world modern day London.
Please, bring Getaway 3 back!
Seems a lot of people are thinking it's a new Getaway. whatever the heck it is, I look forward to its reveal. :)
I bet it's PlayStation Home for PS4 ;) Home has a lot of assets from external sources such as clothing for the avatars and also games and game spaces.
surely not i know some people dedicated time to home, i would rather have sony focus on new ip, games and updates before considering home on ps4.
