Don't build a new studio, give me more LoD.

Sony is killing it... and their still getting more? damn.
Is there any announcements about MS getting more studios for xbox games? I feel like that would be more important news.

Good to see some expansion again.

Maybe some Syphon Filter (if not Bend?)
Personally I really want some team to release the rest of UC2 and UC3s MP maps and co-op modes into UC4. And get Golden Abyss 'remade' with the new ND engine. So that the entire series is at least complete on PS4 in terms of SP and MP.

Awesome. Keep feeding us exclusives.

good stuff. lets hope they put out some high quality stuff. more studios is always a good thing

Sweet. I loved my tour of SOE as a teen and was sad to see them leave the fold. Gonna be cool to have another game studio in SD.

I live in SD and will definitely be keeping an eye on them, though my work/life balance is important to me and I'm not sure if the hours in game development are for me.

I... don't get why they close some studios and then open new ones.

They have run down Psygnosis/studio liverpool and yet here they are opening new studios. I like tat theres new studios but i don't get how not to try and salvage what you got rather than open a new one.
