PS3Center.net writes: Browsing Gamasutra's job listings, Bend Studios has posted a new listing. The Sony owned developer is looking for Senior Game Tools Programmer, with "PS3 or XBOX360 experience".
Yeah very. I loved SF1 & 2 on the psone. Hopefully they make a NEXT GEN version for their fans.
hold on there me boy Waseem. That was totally inappropriate .
If it comes for PS3 and is as good as PSP versions day 1 purchase easy
What is this series? I never heard of it until today. Edit: Thanks FelinePornographer. I guess I am going to read up on this for the next several minutes to see if it interest me at all.
@The Hater. Both syphon filters are like the highest rated PSP games. Its sort of like splinter cell but less stealth and more action. Easily best game i played on PSP besides God of war If they can make it for the PS3 and its as good as PSP version DAY ONE PURCHASE
So I am going to buy it for the PSP and see if I like it or not. Are the stores connected in the series?
Sony Bend first has to finish Resistance: Retribution. But this is a good sign that they are going to develop a PS3 game next. I remember reading that the creator of the Syphon Filter series was working in London Studios. I imagine that he is behind the secret "BBC reporter" game. If not it would be great if he returns to help out Sony bend.
Well i don't really remember the PS1 syphon filter and the PS2 one was trash. But the PSP ones were ace. Dark Mirror and Logans Shadow are sort of connected but you don't really need one to play the other
Whoa!!! I loved the first 2, I really loved the control in that game. Part 2 was the best. There is really not that many espionage games besides MG, splinter Cell.... This franchises has been in the shadows..
I've finished Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and I've played a little bit of Logan's Shadow and they both are awesome. A Ps3 Syphon Filter game would be HUGE!! I have to agree with sonaris though, the PS2 Syphon Filter: Omega Strain was terrible. I always heard good things about the PS1 Syphon Filter games, I think there was 3 or 4 of them on the PS1. I was too busy playing Tony Hawk, Medal of Honor, Smack Down, Twisted Metal ect....
I'm pretty sure there was 3 on the PS1, I only played the 1st one and it was a great game. one of my favorite PS1 titles actually.
I don't think it's going to come out on X360, because SONY owned that studio. please correct me if im wrong. EDIT: TheHater! you've never heard of it? man! that's a classic! I remember playing it on PS1.
No, Sony do own the studio. They obviously want someone with higher end abilities.
yeah dude, I never heard of this series before. But now that I read up on it, it look interesting. So I am going to buy it for the PSP and see if I like it or not.
Thanks man! i guess i was wrong. I think it could be on X360. But since i played the first one on a SONY console, i'd like to play this one on PS3.
PS3 owners get Syphon Filter AND the new Splinter Cell, wow, that's so awesome. Maybe I should get a Ps3.
Where do you get that the new Splinter Cell is coming to the PS3?
Sony owns the IP and the studio. They want people who have experience with the high end gaming consoles. The ps3 and the 360. Ps2 knowledge is ok but if you haven't made a next gen game its a different story.
Sony Bend a SCE subsidury company, hence OWNED BY SONY. Therefore Syphon Filter ONLY ON PLAYSTATION®3.
for those younger gaming audience out there. It play sort of like James Bond'ish. I haven't touch the series since PS1, but u follow an elite agent by the name of Gabe Logan if I remember correctly
The Girl was an asian chick if i remeber correctly. I wonder why Sony never brought it to PS2 as it was a huge hit on the PS1. Part 1 and 2 was really good but it kinda gone weird by part 3 imo.
bring Syphon Filter to the PS2. it was a game called Syphon Filter: Omega Strain, i believe, and it was one of the early titles that was supposed to help put Sony's new online service on the map. unfortunately, Omega Strain sucked donkey balls, so the series went underground for a while. it wasn't until Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, on the PSP reared it's head that the series came back to form with a vengeance. i still own the original Syphon Filter on the PSP, and what a great, if not terribly difficult game it was. i haven't got to play Logan's Shadow yet, because i'm still beating Dark Mirror (my UMD broke, and i simply haven't gotten around to downloading a torrent for it), but i hear it rocks. if SCE Bend are indeed going to start up work on a PS3 Syphon Filter (which is what i expected them to do eventually), and if they can maintain the quality they've shown in the PSP series, then Sony will have another potential great franchise to entice people to come to the PS3 side of the fence. what people seem to ignore or underestimate, is that Sony has a rather STRONG stable of first and second party franchises that have loyal followings: Gran Turismo SOCOM Syphon Filter God of War Ratchet and Clank Jak and Daxter Sly Cooper Warhawk Dark Cloud Rogue Galaxy etc. but the cool thing they've done this generation, is allow those developers to BRANCH out and create NEW franchises that have the potential to become classics: Polyphony Digitals new project (hopefully Omega Boost PS3) Team Ico's new projects Resistance inFamous Incognito's new project (not Warhawk related) White Knight Chronicles Heavy Rain (i guarantee Sony buys Quantic Dreams after HR releases) Little Big Planet Motorstorm Uncharted etc. they excel at this sort of thing, but we are constantly hearing praise about Microsoft being a software company, when in the end, us gamers care about GAMING software. as nice as LIVE is, and the feature set it includes, without a bunch of cool exclusive titles that utilize such a system, it becomes worthless. Sony has plenty of software, and plenty of strong franchises, both old and new. looking at their supposed "10 year life span" of the PS3, they have PLENTY of time to mine those new and old franchises, and push some units. ultimately, it is us gamers that will benefit the most, as we'll see some absolutely AMAZING games. well, as long as the competition from Microsoft stays sharp, and the find a way to keep up with Sony's 25+ first and second party studios (MS only has about 6 or 7 these days, so they have their work cut out for them).
what's this possible x360 version?. SF is not only a Sony owned IP but Bends as i remeber is also owned by Sony.
Bend is part of Sony World Wide Studio, unlike Insomniac and Media Molecule which is a 2nd party developer. But again, Ratchet and Clank, Resistance, and LittleBigPlanet are Sony IPs. So, they won't make it on the X360 either. But I dont understand what the problem is for Xbox owners. You will need a BluRay player for next gen anyways, just drop the fanboy attitude and get a PS3, that way u can play all the PS3 games, Xbox 360 games, and watch hi def BD movies. It's really not that expensive, 400 dollars. Just save up for a month or something. (well for me, 5 hrs of my salary..which will get worst, the state is cutting budget in healthcare and education. dumbest idea ever).
they made syphon filter omega strain for the ps2 but i never heard if that did well or not. all i know is the first one and the 2 for the psp are the best ones EVER.! i would be in loving shock to hear about this coming into deveopement soon. maybe an announcement at e3?
I must have completely missed it. I remember looking forward to it getting a PS2 makeover but i never got to it. Perhaps because DMC, GT3, FFX and MGS2 were out by then that i missed it. Haha. I here i thought it never made it to PS2 lol!. I should get it then.
i remember reading a while back a Syphon Filter PS3 game was in development and just recently according to gamesblow he said we will definitely see Syphon Filter make an appearance at this years E3 so if true i absolutely cannot wait...loved the PS1 and PSP games and cant wait to see what they can do with the PS3
I really almost forgot about the Syphon Filter series. Sony's got so many franchises under their belt, it's hard to recall all of them. I remember playing a demo of one of the Syphon Filter games on the PS1 or PS2, but I never bought any of the games, however I did like the demo I played. I'd defiantly get a Syphon game if it came out on the PS3 though because I really want more games with stealth elements involved.
Wow...They picked the worst series in gaming and decided to make another sequel to it....as if the last 2 weren't bad enough
Do be negative, they might pull a Killzone 2 on us for all we know ;) Syphon Filter is not that bad anyways. The PSP versions were great.
the first 2 Syphon Filters were excellent. Syphon Filter 3, and Syphon Filter: Omega Strain were crap. Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, and Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow, were excellent. from where i stand, that's 4 excellent games, and two crap games. that's better than a LOT of series out there now (look at the RE series: first 4 games good. the spin-off's were crap, and part 5 is simply a retread of part 4, warts and all). not every series has impeccable quality all the way through (even Metal Gear Solid has MGS2 as it's low point. Final Fantasy has II, VIII, and X-2). SCE Bend has turned the Syphon Filter series around in the same way Guerrilla Games turned the Killzone series around (contrary to popular belief, starting with Killzone: Liberation, not the hype exceeding Killzone 2). you seem like the type of person that wanted to see Free Radical BURN after HAZE, despite the fact that their track record included some of the BEST FPS games in console history (Goldeneye 64, Perfect Dark 64, Timesplitters, etc). even Star Wars Battlefront 3, developed by Free Radical, looked rather excellent, and a return to form for the devs. everyone has their bad game. even Blizzard, Bioware, Bungie (Oni, anyone?), etc. it's inevitable. stop being so cynical. you may actually find yourself ENJOYING this hobby you supposedly love called "gaming."
I'll NEVER forget the long range taser from Syphon Filter 2 that and the way Logan runs
cool i played dark mirror and loved. but my only gripe was htat the only stealthy gun was the silenced pistol and any other gun would change the stealth into a gunfight.
I hope it happens.
gabe Logan is tuffer than jack bauer! his favorite weapon is a taser ! syphon filter perfected lock - on on the ps1 it was the first game that gave you the BIZ sub-machine gun. Sniping was dam good. I didn't like omega strain because it was very hard & the story threw me for a loop. I play dark mirror everyday on my psp & soon to have logans shadow. Syphon filters controls on the ps1 was what we all wished tomb raider would have but never did. Tomb raider was close but no cigar. I was born in 1979.
You were born in 79? wow did you miss that lesson on maturity because If i were to read your posts they are of a man from 1997 not 1979. Ok Im not exactly convinced.
I remember the first two were really good, never got a PSP so I kind of tuned out to them. If I got a PS3, I'd be sure to pick up something like this.
Well, this is a perfect opportunity to utilize Killzone 2 engine. Yes it will take some work to make it into 3rd person shooter engine, and the graphics might suffer, if no extra work will be put into the engine first, but it's worth the cost, a great engine for a great game.
if there could be a ps1 syphon filter 2 remake, it would be a bomb. all the ps2 syphon filter were wack, unassuming and stupid.
waseem, that was completely inapropriet. I took much offense in that statement im a big ps3 fanboy, but "May Allah kill all WESTERN society" is not even funny. You need to shut up. You sound more like a terrorist than a pi$sed off fanboy. i reported you.....
