I think playstation is getting serious for PSVR2. They are bolstering studios to accommodate a decent launch lineup in the next year or two. This studio doesn't seem that amazing, but like I said, it's gonna be another game for PSVR2.

Jay767969d ago

Darkborn@ they not just working on vr games they also have job listing for a AAA game.

Darkborn969d ago

They might be now but they helped firesprite with the persistence in the past. Firesprite is working on a VR game and 2 non VR games. So who knows where they will fit in.

Abnor_Mal969d ago

I'm not sure I'm remembering this correctly, but didn't Sony create some initiative that for the PS5 many of their first party games be playable in and out of vr?

Maybe this company along with Firesprite are the ones to make those plans a reality.

1Victor969d ago

Jay they might be working on the persistence 2

SullysCigar969d ago

^ @Abnor_Mal, yes you're right, Sony are going all in on "hybrid" games that can be played flat or in VR. Their initiative is designed to make it quicker, easier and cheaper to take a flat game and co-develop the VR elements.

Darkborn is definitely right too, The Persistence is awesome on PSVR and bringing Fabrik under Firesprite could potentially mean a AAA The Persistence 2 for PS5 and PSVR2!

DarXyde969d ago

I think you assume there will be no AAA VR games.

Damn, they keep getting bigger. Do they have more then one team?

Pancit_Canton969d ago

I wish Sony would developed their own JRPG again instead of relying on third party developer. I miss Legend of Dragoon, Dark Cloud, and Wild Arms.

LiViNgLeGaCY969d ago

Dude, for real. I miss those gems too.

Teflon02969d ago

Dark Cloud 2 is my all time favorite title. 100 agree with this. Absolutely loved wild arms 2 as well. My bro mostly played LoD as a kid while I focused on FFIX, so never had much interest in it, but always respected it

I hope psvr2 is like oculus ie lots of titles including 100s of cheapies. I hope half life alyx is a launch title

Monkey_Balls969d ago (Edited 969d ago )

What's cheap? PSVR has tons of good games under $20.

Sorry George Miller, but you’re wrong about the Mad Max game

George Miller expressed dismay toward the 2015 Mad Max game recently, but Avalanche Studios' take on the lore is still so good to this day.

Mad Max is a good game... George Miller should STFU.

I think the funny thing is if Kojima made a Mad Max game it would be so trippy and "out there" I don't think it would feel like Mad Max by the time he's done with it. This is why he's better off with original new IPs.

Kojima seems like a buzz word these film directors use because he's probably the only big name they've heard from the gaming industry.

Wretchedstain3h ago

Article is correct in my opinion, Miller is wrong. That Death Stranding II trailer is bonkers, looking forward to that in itself.

And I agree, unless Mr Kojima wants to change his tune, or laughably, be told what to do, you're right, it wouldn't be Mad Max or close.

porkChop3h ago

Yup, Kojima really doesn't suit Mad Max. Avalanche did a great job though. It looked, felt, and played like what I'd expect from a Mad Max game. I really enjoyed my time with it, and the sand storms were handled incredibly well.

TheGamingHounds2h ago

I never played it but the recent buzz around Mad Max has piqued my interest. Will check it out this year for sure

MM is not a perfect game by any means as it was held back by lots of repetitious, standard open-world copy and paste missions, but the devs SO perfectly captured the world, atmosphere, lore and brutality. It also just so happens to boast one of THE best photo modes out there and some of the most impressive explosions I've ever seen in a game to date. The car combat is of course another impressive standout, both vicious and fun. MM is a game which I have revisited multiple times since its release, and now having just seen Furiosa, I can feel it calling me back again.

There's a ton to love there, but I think you'll pickup on the areas where the devs struggled likely due to reigning in the scope, budget and time constraints, leading to an incredibly fun, albeit uneven experience. Though, as mentioned, it's absolutely a game worth experiencing once, and I truly hope you enjoy it. The game really does deserve a sequel.

victorMaje1h ago

Word for word. Exactly this. A lot of fun to be had in there. A true Mad Max game. Sequel can’t come soon enough.

maelstromb2h ago

Honestly, Kojima would do the game justice, but given his studio's current workload, it's a bit far flung. I could much rather see Bend Studios (Days Gone dev) doing a Mad Max follow-up. I'm playing through DG right now for the first time and I see lots of similarities between the games to where imo Bend could develop an impressive MM sequel.

VersusDMC2h ago

While i like the Mad Max game and think it's underrated...i don't know why people are mad at George Miller for not liking the game based on the IP he created. Especially since a lot of people hated it at release as well looking at that 69% metacritic.
