Bluepoint on PS5 Reveal: It's Time to Leave Our Old Gaming Limitations Behind

Writing on Twitter in response to the confirmation of PlayStation’s Future of Gaming showcase, technical director Peter Dalton said: “I’m so excited for the future. It is time to push forward and leave our old gaming limitations behind us.”

The story is too old to be commented.

Effing goosebumps!! PS5 is coming !!!

Jin_Sakai607d ago

Agreed. Bluepoint are wizards like Naughty Dog. I expect their game to look nothing short of amazing.

dcbronco607d ago

If graphics were what he was talking about then nothing is changing. We need more AI and physics. 4k and 120 is as far as it needs to go in the first 5 or 6 years of this generation with the most effort made in using AI and physics to bring new experiences.

DOMination-607d ago

Outside of sites like this, Bluepoint will be completely unknown which is a great travesty. I hope Sony acquire them because those devs deserve the financial stability that'll come with that. Can't really fault anything they've done so far and one day I hope they get to work on something original (if they want to)

UltraNova607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

Just give me Demon Souls remake and that's it I'm getting a PS5 day 1.

Edit:

Will Sony get off their ass and aquire Bluepoint already??

lalalala607d ago

@dcbronco - he's not talking about graphics, he's talking about the ssd which other devs including cerny have explained, should mean they can design a game the way they want to because of the quick loading times. Naughty Dog even mentioned that with Jak & Daxter 3 I think, they had to create loads of alleys and corridors in order for the console to have time to load all the textures and models in time. If they didn't have a bottleneck on loading, the game would have looked very different

bouzebbal606d ago

Demon's souls remake please

leejohnson222606d ago

I agree but would love to see them start a new ip in their own right

S2Killinit606d ago (Edited 606d ago )

The rest of the week until the PS5 game event is probably going to be filled with lots of dev comments about new games about to be shown. Even if they aren't at Sony's event, it's the time of year that marketing for games releasing this year goes into full swing, and with a new console gen, games that are even further off are going to kick start their marketing plans. This is going to be a good thing for all gamers regardless of console preference, because a lot of games can be played on other platforms, but waiting for next gen, and then all the other stuff going on, has had a lot of developers keeping more quiet about their projects.

It's sorely needed IMO, because the past 6 months has been dreadfully dull overall. This was just exacerbated, at least for me, by the stay at home orders, and having a lot of free time on my hands. I did manage to knock out a few games from my backlog though.

IRetrouk606d ago

Cant wait to see what they are working on, isnt bluepoint rumoured to be working on more than one game?

ElementX607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

How about leaving old games behind and coming up with something new? (Sorry I just had to)

Double_O_Revan607d ago

They are amazing at what they do. Every one is wondering what they'll remake next. I'll take what they do at the quality they do it over many others.

ElementX607d ago

Yeah I know it was a joke

tontontam0607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

Yeah poor xbox fanboys majority of games they will play during the xbox series x launch date are souped up old games.
(this is not a joke)

607d ago
TommyVercetti88607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

Same for ps5.

NewEnds0186607d ago

Why even bring xbox into it?

xX-oldboy-Xx607d ago

ElementX - That may be what he was alluding to. Maybe they've been acquired by Sony, maybe they've been given the budget for a new ip.

But I think we'll get one more stellar remake from them - hopefully Demons Souls for launch day on PS5.

neutralgamer1992607d ago

Yeah I think we may hear some acquisitions by Sony at this event and bluepoint games are a must add to the family since they have been working with Sony for a long time

neutralgamer1992607d ago

Element

I know you are joking but we are constantly told about the backwards compatibility and how the next generations Xbox can improve game graphically and frame rate wise so I would imagine since Xbox fans like that there would be more than happy with actual full-on remakes to bring the games up to date

There are three rumors

Blue point games are working on demon souls

blue point games are working on Jak and daxter trilogy and making it into one big game

Blue point games and Sony are in talks with square enix to remake legacy.of Kain

Muzikguy607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

The Legacy of Kain would be awesome. I keep forgetting about the acquisition of Eidos. It's weird since they really haven't done anything with it

AngelicIceDiamond607d ago

Legacy Of Kain!? Please be true I'd throw money at that. This was a small rumor a while back but I heard they could be making a Tenchu collection. I'd throw tons of money at the to.

DarXyde607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

Thing is, it's a bad joke.

Games1st607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

PS5 is the easiest consple to develop with, trading power and features to reduce dead time under a month, they can develop a lot of games and more New IP.

ElementX607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

I'm just trying to lighten the mood. My city (Minneapolis) is F'ing burning, if you've watched the news. I live about 3 blocks from where windows were being smashed, further from the actual fires. I don't know if I'm safe, I don't know what's going to happen, I'm just trying to maybe put a smile on somebody's face because frankly, I'm a little scared and so I try to turn to humor. I'm not here trying to discredit Bluepoint or down talk them, people need to lighten up because this stupid console war crap is the last thing on my mind.

monkey602606d ago

Aww man keep safe! Things look to be getting well out of hand over there. There is definitely a lot of wrong doing coming from both sides of the fence at the minute. Hopefully it fizzles down very soon and some positive changes are made for the county from it all.

Look after yourself

kingboy606d ago

dude stop pretending for years on N4G you've been nothing but a console war instigator on every single positive playstation article like a child..

ElementX606d ago (Edited 606d ago )

Oh I have? Show me where I've ever said Sony or PS is sh!t, I've never done it to my knowledge, I've owned PS1, PS3, PS4, Vita and PSP. So I hate Sony but I buy their products? People make wild accusations and talk sh!t about everything MS does, I stand up for them, I provide quotes and links to valid articles. I have never been in any Sony or PS article and said they were garbage. Maybe I wasn't thrilled with Death Stranding, maybe I was a little skeptical about Days Gone, maybe I don't believe 5GB+/Sec IO is going to provide anything that can't be done elsewhere. Maybe I'm not thrilled about the triggers on DualShock/DualSense, but I have never claimed MS is King, I have never said anything directly against Playstation. You see me standing up for one company and assume I'm against the other, it isn't true. Maybe I want to stand up for the underdog and clear up some negative BS that people are claiming/spreading, so sue me. I try to provide facts and do some research before commenting.

Yeah I'm tired of remakes and remasters. People often say MS needs new IPS, people are tired of COD, but they'll buy old games again that have a new coat of paint, seems a bit hypocritical. There are too many people with double standards.

Go back through my comments over the past 10+ years, if I said Sony sucks it was so long ago I don't remember. Props to you kingboy, you've been here longer than I have, that's uncommon.

chicken_in_the_corn607d ago

Because people dont want new games anymore. It's all about remasters and remakes

sampsonon607d ago

I think that's exactly what he is saying. New ip for Sony incoming.

MasterCornholio606d ago (Edited 606d ago )

Well it is rumored to be a next gen remake so while the game is old it won't feel that way.

Honestly a next gen remake of something like Demon Souls doesn't seem like a bad idea to me.

LMosche606d ago

Thought that was Horizon Zero Dawn, Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding. They're all new Ips arent they? PC and Xbox had less of those that weren't cash grabs.

Rude-ro606d ago

Well.. technically speaking.. Microsoft’s loss of their gaming market share backs up your statement 😂😂

Sony really needs to get these guys into world wide studios.. They are the best of the best when it comes to remakes and remasters.

KilluaX3607d ago

They shouldn't be owned by anyone. You fanboys need to stop wanting to limit these devs' audiences.

xX-oldboy-Xx607d ago

I'd say 100+million potential customers is a big enough audience. BluePoint would flourish under Sony.

Shadowsteal607d ago

Yeah after Xbox bought half a dozen studios to keep their games off of Playstation.

Tacoboto607d ago

Their last non-PS4 game was Titanfall on 360... Couldn't be more excited for whatever PS remake they've got coming

KilluaX3607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

@Shadowsteal

What Xbox is doing is wrong as well, but at least their games will be coming to PC as well (the only platform worth owning).

xX-oldboy-Xx606d ago

KilluaX3 - Seems you're dirty PC doesn't get any AAA exclusives worth worrying about haha.

Enjoy HZD when it releases mate.

OB1Biker606d ago

People calling everyone fanboy are the worst.
There s nothing wrong with Sony or Ms studios expanding.

Here’s what I don’t get okay? The entire planet see’s what PlayStation is and has been doing a far as games, studios, developers, types of games, home grown 3rd party support and so on and so fourth.

They’ve even adopted several popular things such as achievements from Xbox and made them their own. A smart man would say okay I see what my competition is doing its working, it’s popular, so all I have to do is improve upon that and make it my own.

Yet and this is mind boggling for an entire generation Microsoft time and time again has been off the reservation. And I don’t understand how that’s possible. PlayStation has literally given them all of the ansers to the test. They also have endless resources to attract the best of America and the best people world wide on offer and can’t put together one coherent studio who can make an original IP or one that they already own even better?

It blows my mind. No wonder Steve Jobs use to shit all over Microsoft. They have zero taste for anything but failure in every sense of the word.

Shadowsteal607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

I remember when Microsoft canceled the Coalition new IP to make Gears 4. They stomped out Scalebound from Platinum Games. Even lost Bungie because they were tired of making Halo. 343 is just a knockoff Halo churning team.

I wish Microsoft actually gave their studios creative freedom. This is why we Sony Studios produces titles such as Horizon, The Last of Us, Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding and even Dreams.

All Microsoft has to do is treat their development teams like adults.

606d ago
rainslacker607d ago (Edited 607d ago )

MS, as a corporation, at least publicly, does look at what the competition is doing, and they do often take their cues from that competition. Some of MS most successful products were actually products of competition, which they actually just copied and acted like the were the leaders in those areas.

This has been true for their entire history. People that paid attention to MS during the 90's and early 00's knew that most of their products were nowhere near as good as other products on the market, but they had market share, so they were hard to compete against. Windows also gave them a huge advantage, and while it was copied from someone else's idea, that isn't the place where they made most of their money, nor the products I mean when I say this.

MS isn't going to admit publicly, except in those rare times of trying to seem humble, that they aren't the innovators, and will always try to make it about themselves. They look at the competition, but if you noticed, when they were buying game studios, they weren't saying they were doing it because it was why their competition was successful, they said they were doing it to bring the best experiences to their customer, and that they were listening to what their fans were saying....which is odd, because I always saw their fans saying that they were doing great, but that's another matter.

Anyhow, MS does indeed have their creativity at times, but their motivations are about how to control things, not how to just provide good products for their customers that will bring them success.

In short, MS just has a corporate mentality to achieve success, and success is measured by profits, revenue, and marketshare. MS can't admit to not being as successful as a rule of thumb, because they have to appear strong. Even when they're not leading in an area that measures success, they just make up their own metrics for public review, then ignore anything that doesn't make those metrics that are beneficial to them.

When it comes down to it, MS is still making money, and the Xbox brand isn't a money pit, and they are at least staying relevant in a market that they would not have as much influence in by being just a 3rd party publisher, or just trying to leverage their company through the back end development side of things.

I don't really question MS reasons for all this. But, I do question the loyalty and trust that MS is given within gaming based on the things you said. It seems to be given despite the fact that they didn't actually earn it, and what they did get in the 360 days, I feel they pissed away this gen.

EasilyTheBest606d ago

The richest company in the world tho. Hmmm.
