I searched around and don't think this was known?

Supermassive games are getting a lot of Sony funding and projects. I like what they've done so far. Seems like one to watch.

Yup they've done some pretty decent stuff this gen. Looking forward to seeing what they can do with a next-gen console.

I'm kinda interested in until dawn, but it seems it's not the best developer to be claiming AAA status. we'll see i guess.

We will never know how talented these studios are until they are give a reasonable budget to fulfill their vision. We know SSM, ND, GG, Sucker punch, MM, PD etc will always be given AAA budgets. Lets see if these guys make a great game with that budget and join the ranks.

Can't really say how good they are or not. Seem to have been scraping together contracts with small party games. based on their portfolio so far, but that's what a lot of start ups have to do.

"From the developers of Big Match Striker, Start the Party, Tumble, and game that's not out yet....comes AAA BLOCKBUSTER"

Not much to get hyped about yet, but it's interesting to hear there's more work on next gen.

They haven't really been given a chance. With the proper funding and support from Sony they could make a really great game. Or they could make Lair.

yes, i agree. i just wish some of these studios try to play it a little more safe. some of these developers are sucked into making average to good games nowadays by sony (like lightbox and eat sleep play - sorry jaffe, i love you man, but i didn't think twisted metal was that fun nowadays, i loved them back on ps1 though! - and i feel superbot is going to suffer too) so i hope they do well.

Remember guys, Naughty Dog, Santa Monica etc all started somewhere. That's not to say they'll crack out something incredible, but given a bigger budget and the time, it could turn out to be really good.

People said the same kind of thing when the PS3 and Vita launched - depth of studios, nonstop support, etc... Doesn't seem like it's really feasible to provide that deluge of titles.

It is, but not in the way I think you're suggesting. AAA is not a quality grade, it's a level of funding. An AAA product will cost $30 million dollars (or some other astronomical amount of money.) It will have a massive marketing budget. It will be a tent pole release, and so on. It may be a piece of shit, but it will be a very expensive piece of shit.

There are too many AAA games for the existing gaming audience, that is for sure.

The jump from Tumble to Until Dawn would be comparable.

Yes, the "Wonderbook" is supposed to be supported by a series of games. Book of Spells was the first, beyond that Walking with Dinosaurs, some Disney thing, and an original IP called Diggs Nightcrawler have been announced so far.

Unproven studio and the overuse of AAA. Neither of us have evidence.

Tumble was a great tech demo that showcased the Move's ability to operate in a 3D space.

But they aren't unproven. They are proven to be not so good with Doctor Who. ;-)

(Yes yes, maybe budget and time constraints. Still not a good track record.)

AAA just means it's a big budget title, in the tens of millions, says nothing about the quality.

To be fair they've done decent games so far considering none of them were huge budget. Tumble is one of the best Move games available, and Until Dawn looks fantastic.

My guess is some old Sony IP they're bringing back and can't be bothered to have their big studios make it. Stuff like Jak or Syphon Filter.

Either that or their definition of AAA is a lot different than mine and it's wonderbook 2 or some shit.
