Sony Playstation: First Party Studios & their Current Projects

Hey, Killer Queen! I'm not too familiar with ya, so what's your experience in the game industry? I've been trying to keep track of who knows things, and I know Matt, who sometimes pops in here, is also someone with good information.

Thanks for the post!

Are you saying that because Killerqueen said it was a multi plat? I remember seeing people here talk about Gaf having a melt down over project beast being an exclusive title.
Two threads. Two amazing threads. We even had meltdowns that the leaked footage was simply Dark Souls 2's majula's entrance and that it was all fake.

Honestly, I'm no one noteworthy or special. I just got lucky in getting to talk to someone who is. I myself am not personally affiliated with Fromsoft, but the person I talk to has given me a few heads up on information that wouldn't be publicly known in the past and this is before me even talking about Fromsoft's current future titles.

But as a result a lot of people consider me to be a faker of a fraud, which is fair as we've had that problem with other users before. But there isn't really anything I myself can prove until something is shown outside of saying that it's unlikely that Fromsoft won't be at this or that event, but even that could be a guessing game. So I understand people's skepticism.

Any "insider" knowledge I would have personally would only be of Fromsoft, and the knowledge I do have is probably more akin to breadcrumbs rather than any intimate knowledge of any projects over at From, though I still prefer not to share everything I am told as some of it I would consider potentially sensitive information.

So what usually happens is I ask particular questions, the guy may or may not give me answers depending on how comfortable they are with what I've asked, but it won't be much. To keep them out of trouble I'll relay a small portion of that information in a post every few months (though that's going to either get more infrequent or come to an end) that I feel isn't anything major. Im never told what to or what not to share, I make my own judgement on that, just don't cause anything that'll get them or anyone else in trouble by making a lot of noise or dropping big stuff.

The last time I was told anything was E3 and haven't really asked since. Whether I will continue or not I'm unsure. But the Neogaf moderators are currently in possession of the complete list of info that I have and are aware of where I get it.
 
Sony's actually hyping PGW, which is an obvious good sign. I'm curious about what they'll have from a first party standpoint. Wild and Detroit are obviously expected. I'm sure we'll see more of the Supermassive triplets that they've been quiet about since E3. I don't expect Spider-Man, GoW, Days Gone or TLoU:pII to be there. I see them being saved for PSX. Their Euro show tends to be where they let XDev flex their muscle. And we have seen them announced Japanese titles there, like Rain and Puppeteer.

But in many ways I think the show is a bit of a mystery since they seem to be hyping it. I wouldn't expect them to hype if it were going to be like E3 where it was primarily them giving updates on previously announced games.

Can't wait until next Monday. Expecting the release date for Detroit Become Human, the Dreams Beta and a holiday price drop for PS4 Slim/Pro.
