Yep. Spend more money on their big franchises and end their less profitable ones. Almost every single other big publisher is doing this as well. AAA gaming is getting more expensive. Gamers expectations are increasing. So team sizes and budgets have to go up in size as well. Sony is shifting to larger games, and smaller downloadable titles.
sonys risk taking strategy is what gave us last of us ... otherwise nd would be a uncharted studio like bungie was a halo studio for ms. so thanks but no thanks. I prefer sony taking risks as a first party dev. IF that means I'll get 3 games instead of 4 a year . I am okay with that. We have enough "mega franchises" ... or they run the risk of becoming like nintendo where every new idea is shoehorned into some existing franchise ... again not what I want.
