Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios: A Taste of What’s to Come

Scott Rohde's Avatar + Posted by Scott Rohde on Apr 11, 2011 // SVP of Product Development, Worldwide Studios America, SCEA

It’s been a busy 2011 already for us here at Sony Computer Entertainment! We’ve seen the launch of LittleBigPlanet 2, MLB 11 The Show, Killzone 3, PlayStation Move Heroes, and many more—and we’re just getting started. Tomorrow sees the release of Patapon 3 and April 19th marks the North American launch of SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs. We have more heavy hitters coming throughout the year and I’m excited to announce that this week you’ll be seeing new information popping up on the PlayStation.Blog and through the gaming media offering sneak peeks at some of our biggest titles launching in 2011.

As a preview to our biggest industry conference—E3—we’re conducting a media tour this week featuring early looks at some of this year’s most-anticipated PlayStation 3 titles: inFAMOUS 2, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, Resistance 3, Twisted Metal, and UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception. We’re inviting several of our media partners to get a firsthand look at new content and information from each of the titles, and we’ll be sharing what we show them on the PlayStation.Blog starting tonight and throughout the next week.

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One logoTwisted Metal logo

In fiscal year 2011 alone, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios brought you 50 full game releases across three PlayStation platforms. Our close-knit community of development studios and partners is one of our most valuable assets in developing innovative gameplay that pushes the industry forward.

For example, both Guerilla Games, the team behind the Killzone franchise, and Zipper Interactive, the creators of SOCOM, worked closely together to develop the new PlayStation Move sharp shooter attachment. And with PlayStation 3 being the only gaming console readily capable for high-definition stereoscopic 3D, we’re continuing to see our developers advancing 3D gameplay. This week on the tour, Insomniac Games North Carolina studio will showcase a 3D CG-animated gameplay experience with the first hands-on of Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One in 3D. Insomniac Games also recently announced 3D and PlayStation Move support for Resistance 3, and Naughty Dog has blown people away with the fire effects they’ve shown off in their first single-player 3D reveal. And there’s much more to come!

As we head into this week of activity, we just want to thank you for your support throughout the first part of this year and we look forward to giving you many more great games throughout 2011. We always love hearing from our community, so tell us in the comments what PlayStation games you’re most anticipating in the coming months!

Hopefully they’ll have some nice surprise PSN games to announce soon. What have Idol Minds and Team Ramrod been up to lately? Something new from The Last Guy and echo series devs would also be nice…

Too many mainstream titles. My avatar should tell you what camp I’m in. Not happy with these titles Sony. Thankfully I can import on the PS3 with ease, so even though you’re ignoring the niche market (like visual novels) I don’t have any concerns.

+ twistedfloyd on April 11th, 2011 at 1:20 pm said:

Great year so far guys! And man, can’t wait for a bunch of these coming down the pipeline.

Most anticipated are:

Twisted Metal
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
inFamous 2
Resistance 3
The Last Guardian (if it’s coming out this year)

Can’t wait for the media events this week, keep it up!


61

+ Skater_Ricky on April 11th, 2011 at 1:34 pm said:

My most anticipating game of the year is… well that’s the thing I love them all.

I can’t wait for Co-op game play with (All 4 One)


62

+ ThreeLeggedFreak on April 11th, 2011 at 1:37 pm said:

Insomniac, Sucker Punch and Jaffe’s studio are not 1st party.

Sony should buy out Sucker Punch, Jaffe’s studio, Quantic Dream, Clap Hanz, From Software and Level 5.

Speaking of which, there’s no RPG teams within SCEWWS, that’s a little weird.


63

+ fijski8 on April 11th, 2011 at 1:39 pm said:

RPG! Yes, please!

Nowhere near enough of em.

HD FFXI online from psn store would be cool too.


64

+ TheLastNinja- on April 11th, 2011 at 1:42 pm said:

While Killzone 3 was a huge disappointment…

Still have a good amount of games to look forward to. :D

+ VixDiesel on April 11th, 2011 at 1:43 pm said:

Cross game chat? That’s what I’m waiting for (oh and a few of these titles) but XCC would make this all the more fab. Especially since in games like Free Realms, the chat is made of fail.

+ mastorofpuppetz on April 11th, 2011 at 1:53 pm said:

@1 agreed, love the PS3, by far the best system, BUT, it really is lacking in any RPG’s other then multi-plats, why is sony only doing action games/shooters this gen? Need a good first party Sony RPG.


67

+ mastorofpuppetz on April 11th, 2011 at 1:54 pm said:

@60, Jaffe’s IS first party. It’s a SCE game.

+ jveloz21 on April 11th, 2011 at 2:11 pm said:

looking forward to get all these games except twisted metal. Really can’t wait for uncharted 3 though. I bought my PS3 this summer and I am glad I chose it over the 360. Exclusives exclusives exclusives!


69

+ lostinplainsight on April 11th, 2011 at 2:15 pm said:

yeah i’m going to have to agree with the folks here that a first party rpg is in order. a dragoon sequel maybe?

+ Nivek245 on April 11th, 2011 at 2:17 pm said:

Im getting them all except Ratchet and Clank


71

+ VICXRAD on April 11th, 2011 at 2:24 pm said:

What about Motorstorm Apocalypse?

Is it even coming out this year? because clearly you have forgotten all about it with no new release date


72

+ DeathGazer on April 11th, 2011 at 2:27 pm said:

lol @ people whining about lack of variety.

Not many games out there are as unique as inFamous, Twisted Metal, and Uncharted. And plus we got LBP2 in January…can’t ask for much variety than that.


73

+ D-Roca on April 11th, 2011 at 2:49 pm said:

Any more news on Motorstorm Apocalypse?

This is by far the best year for PS3, so many games including:

-Killzone 3
-LittleBigPlanet 2
-Socom 4
-Motorstorm Apocalypse
-Sorcery
-Infamous 2
-Resistance 3
-Twisted Metal
-Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
-Last Guardian
-Uncharted 3

Any Motorstorm Apocalypse news? release date announcement??

Last Guardian with move support! Can I get a witness?!

How can you leave out ‘Motorstorm: Apocalypse’? I will get them ALL anyway :P


77

love all this exclusives sony has been putting out…keep them coming you guys are the best when it comes to exclusives


78

+ MarinoBrea on April 11th, 2011 at 3:05 pm said:

What happened to THE LAST GUARDIAN? and when is the Team ICO Collection coming out???????? And whatever happened to the SCE teams that used to produce RPGs like Legend of Legaia? At the very least PAY SEGA to develop another exclusive Valkyria Chronicles title for the PS3? Heck! You should team up with Square-Enix and create a new action RPG in the vein of Kingdom Hearts (which they refuse to make for PS3!), but instead make it in PLAYSTATION UNIVERSE (instead of Disney characters!)! Sony, listen to me!

+ unbornsoldier on April 11th, 2011 at 3:14 pm said:

+ Nithorias on April 11th, 2011 at 3:15 pm said:

I”m so sad about this list, yeah I wont deny that I”ll buy Infamous 2, Twisted Metal, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One (maybe) and of course Uncharted 3, but what about Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection and The Last Guardian!!! I”ll be honest, I really don’t want them to delay it, but man some info on this games will be more than enough for me. The Last Guardian is my most anticipating game of this year, and it makes me sad that it isn’t on this list. Hopefully we”ll know something about it in the coming months. *fingers crossed* lol


81

+ saintaqua on April 11th, 2011 at 3:17 pm said:

I can’t wait for Uncharted 3!!
But what we really need from you Sony is more RPGs!!
Legend of Dragoon could sure use a remake or a sequel!

+ digitalman123 on April 11th, 2011 at 3:21 pm said:

GIVE US A JAK AND DAXTER COLLECTION STAT!!!!!! Please? I’d REALLY love to have all those FANTASTIC games on a PS3 disc with trophies! Please make a Jak and Daxer Collection! Maybe even add Combat Racing to the collection too!


83

+ HazeBlaze on April 11th, 2011 at 3:25 pm said:

inFamous 2 is my most anticipated game this year, across any system! I’m also looking forward to seeing the follow up to Warhawk… that game was an underrated gem! Til this day, probably the most fun I’ve had with an online game.


84

+ HazeBlaze on April 11th, 2011 at 3:26 pm said:

And PLEEEASE let the rumors of a Heavenly Sword 2 game be true!!!

I’m so excited for inFAMOUS 2 you can’t even imagine!

+ mastorofpuppetz on April 11th, 2011 at 4:01 pm said:

@71, umm, it’s a fact the PS3 has virtually no RPG’s, all those u listed are ACTIOn games, it’s all sont does now it seems. Remember the PS2, the biggest console of all time? Lots of RPG’s, not one person said anything about a lack of variety, sont has that more then anyone, EXCEPT, RPG’s.

+ amjr72 on April 11th, 2011 at 4:09 pm said:

I understand that Sony must seek market trends and White Knight underperformed (maybe because it is an average game) but, there are like a bit of a flood of first party shooters already Warhawk, Killzone, Resistance, SOCOM, MAG… there isn’t any capable RPG developer left? Losing From Software’s exclusivity sure was stupid.


91

+ shazbot-finubus on April 11th, 2011 at 4:31 pm said:

Man, such a killer line up for Sony in 2011! Then you factor in the big 3rd party games, like Crysis 2 and the upcoming Portal 2, and it is just one crazy year.

+ UnleashSonic on April 11th, 2011 at 4:51 pm said:

Haha! Suckers! I already have MotorStorm Apocalypse and it is awesome! Only bad thing about it is some of the music, not all, but some of the music is reaallly bad. Can’t wait till Uncharted 3 and well…. Every other game this year! What a fantastic year for gaming indeed!! Now, off i go, back to finding all the treasures so i can platinum Uncharted 2

+ cobrafang on April 11th, 2011 at 4:57 pm said:

You keep talking about the Move yet where are the games that are designed SPECIFICALLY for the Move itself? Release more 1 to 1 ratio sports games for the Move like found on the Sports Champions game disk. I want to bowl, swing a bat, swing a golf club, play some tennis without buying a game designed for a dual shock with a small portion of Move sprinkled on last minute to get that Move logo on the box. Why can the Wii do more with less raw power than the PS3? Make it happen Sony.

I would like to see some classic games from the PSone days comes back, namely the Psygnosis games. THose were the games that cemented me as a fan of the PlayStation brand. They don’t have to be a full fledged Reboot like Twisted Metal. They could be a simple remastering with trophies and HD like The Sly Collection or an HD revival like Bionic Commando Rearmed.

Here are the games from the PSone days.

Colony Wars
Colony Wars: Vengeance
Colony Wars III- Red Sun
G-Police
G-Police: Weapons of justice
Destruction Derby
ReBoot: The game
Steel Reign
Armored Core
Ace Combat
Assault Rig
Return Fire
Uprising X
Einhander
RayStorm
Duke Nukem

Im sure there are plenty others but I hope this list can somehow bring these games to a new generation of gamer and establish their legacies.. Thanks.
