Report OP if dupe (this is kind of old news on GAF, so I may well just have missed it).

The title of the article is actually kind of misleading, because Yoshida's quote is that they're not doing "many" mid sized games anymore.

Anyway, I cannot begin to describe how gutting this is for me. I have rabbited on and on here about how "the middle" of gaming is pretty much where all my favourite IP's are contained. And a great deal of those IP's are held by Sony (not least because they're one of the few developers who actually still support the "not AAA-but-not-indie-retail-release" titles).

To think that this $40 batch of games (Sly Cooper: Puppeteer) might actually be the last we see from them breaks my heart. A future without Ratchet? Without WipEout? Without Twisted Metal? Uff.

Yeah, it's kinda depressing :( Though if Into The Nexus sells well enough we might get another full $60 Ratchet & Clank on the PS4 someday :D (oh god i hope so ;-;)

Alundra; Legend of Dragoon; Legend of Legaia; Rogue Galaxy; White Knight Chronicles; Wild ARMs.

And I believe Dark Cloud/Chronicle.  Because if that was in Level-5's hands, you could be sure there would be more than 2 games by now.

Alundra is not a JRPG.. it's an action/adventure series.

Can they give Wild Arms to Media.Vision then?


Fixed ;)

Ahh.  What I wouldn't give to see Sony & MV team up on Wild ARMs 6...


I always do that. Even when writing that I was like "something is wrong here.".. and yes I desire a New Wild Arms badly. After I finish up XF I going to replay the original 3.
