Gio Corsi's division was set-up for Sony to have an official division to support/negotiate bringing over 3rd-party games that would otherwise never happen. ( indie games, Japanese games, etc )
This isn't a "we're talking to Activision about Destiny", this is a "we're talking to Square about Type-0" or a "we're talking to PC dev about this PC exclusive game that he had no intentions of bringing to consoles.."
This is a group within Sony that supports third parties in developing games for Sony platforms. This would mean those games would be exclusive.
He's referring specifically to third party games that Sony helps happen. Gio runs a new group within Sony that helps third party devs port games to Sony platforms as well as help translate games. Like Borderlands 2 on the Vita.
Back in November, Adam Boyes noted that Corsi has been getting a ton of requests for Yakuza and Shenmue.
Schreier: With the caveat that this is all up in the air, this is all in negotiations, are there any that you guys have in mind that you would really like to bring over here?
Boyes: I think a lot—we get a ton of requests for Yakuza, a ton of requests for Shenmue. We see the lists. Like everything that people have tweeted Gio, literally we have a person that compiles those lists and prioritizes based on how many requests we've gotten. And I think to date there's well over 10,000 mentions across like forum threads and stuff like that. So those are the ones we're focused on.
For anyone unaware of Corsi's department, it was formed not long after the PS4 was announced:
Back from August:
SCEA’s Gio Corsi has announced the formation of a new group within the company called Third Party Production which works with publishing partners to bring third-party IPs to PlayStation platforms (PS4, PS3, Vita).
Moments ago, Adam Boyes introduced the latest addition to the Third Party Relations family at Playstation, a new group that I get to captain called Third Party Production. The Third Party Relations team at PlayStation is well known for developing solid relationships across this industry, and this new group will work closely with our publishing partners to bring their beloved IPs to some new places. This means you’ll see even more great games on PlayStation platforms, including new IP’s, ports, and localized products. In addition, our partners who are currently in production will have us as a resource to strengthen their development process, ensuring quality and consistency on all Third Party projects.
I’m really excited for our team to explore new opportunities on behalf of PlayStation. Even though we’re brand new to PlayStation, we’ve got years of experience in this industry already under our belt. We already have a project underway, the recently announced PS Vita version of Borderlands 2. We are extremely excited to work with Iron Galaxy Studios on this project and I cannot wait to show and tell you more down the road.
I will share more with you as our adventures continue and new games are made available. In the meantime, let me know in the comments what you want to see on PlayStation (PS3, PS4, PS Vita). Or contact me on Twitter through the ingenious and mesmerizing handle of @giocorsi — original I know, but man is it solid.
Talk soon guys and keep on playing!
