Action/Adventure is such a broad term at this point.

Need to rework these genre listings.

I think this was confirmed, in concept, a while ago.

But the action-adventure bit is new. Fingers crossed for Medievil PS4.

Would so go for a new Syphon Filter, but I guess it's more likely that that's Uncharted 4.

Whatever this is I think it's a long way out. I remember someone in the know saying they had no idea what it is. I hope it's a new IP. Give Bend a chance to step up to the big leagues like they are with RAD.

Bend would be a good studio to use for smaller downloadable action games similar in scope to something like Shadow Complex.

For Bend's sake I hope it's not Syphon Filter. There's no way it'll sell well enough to justify being made, and I fear that will be the end of the studio.

How you figure? It will sell since it's a 3rd person shooter and has some brand recognition.

I thought that about the Tomb Raider reboot though, and that turned out well sales wise.

Maybe if Sony gives em a big push?

Or Medievil, ya, but I'd expect PS3 for that since that'd be more of a give back to the fans thing than a 'let's push this reboot' thing

I don't necessarily see that. If it looks good and gets enough marketing, it would probably do fine.

I will be shocked if this is anything not Uncharted related judging from Demonite's comment a while back, because that would give Naughty Dog room to move onto 2 new IPs for the next generation for their now 2 teams (U3 team and TLOU team).

Syphon Filter reboot could be pretty cool depending on how they went about it. The time is ripe, series fell off the radar quite a while ago.

As a side note, while "PS4 ONLY" quite possibly means the game is on PS4 only, he is the UI guy, so he could be working on only the PS4 version's UI.

That said I'm not sure how many PS4/Vita games would ever actually exist.

Not counting the PS2 ports of the PSP games...Omega Strain? That was 2004, maybe?

That's actually quite a decent guess. Maybe Uncharted: Golden Abyss was a test run for more substantial iterations, while Naughty Dog breaks new ground with unique IPs.

If you were Mr. Yoshida, and you had to decide whether to go with a less profitable, potentially risky Syphon Filter reboot...or Uncharted 4 as a guaranteed best-seller, which would you choose?

Uh, Bend's really the only internal SCE studio that could make an inFamous for Vita for next year with Second Son's release ruling out Sucker Punch doing it themselves. Given Bend's working on a PS4 game, it's safe to say that inFamous title is outsourced and obviously not to Ready At Dawn either.

This is a franchise that outside of two late era PS2 ports has been gone from console gaming for over 10 years.

Omega strain was 3 years into PS2. They brought Twisted Metal, they can do SF.
