Forums - Sony Discussion - will Sony get more studio(s)?

Yes obviously they will, Sony Computer interactive entertainment revenue not just come from hardware , but software and service live PS+ , PS now and games and also license.

If they can increase the games sales , there will be more portfolio to increase their production on gaming product. Their output has been great so far as console maker but they still cannot beat other ip maker in creating more games, but the quality so far also has been amazing.

SO i can see in PS5 era they will have another 3 or 4 more studio and more team.

The title of this thread is bugging me. 'studios'

But I'm sure they will. But I don't think it's necessary.

They shouldn't "acquire" studios, rather build new ones!

They could do with a new FPS series (or elevate killzone to a higher level), and something like motorstorm, that would really flesh out the variety of their first party lineup.

I mean syphoon filter FPS stealth game would be amazing too. or resistance.

FPS Syphon Filter?! NO THANKS.  They should keep it in 3rd person.

Sony doesn't have a studio in San Diego, there can't be a new team if there is no studio there. This would be a new studio if true.

Sony San Diego is 17 years old.  There is a studio there.  They make MLB: The Show .

I always forget MLB is an exclusive.

whats wrong with a stealth FPS like deus ex or a similar style to dishonored?

 

i personally take that over 3rd person

Sony should be opening at least 2 more major studios for next gen to keep up with protracted development time.

They are saying that syphon filter should not be a FPS, not that a stealth FPS is a bad idea. 

And I agree.

I don't really want Sony to have a studio just to make an FPS.
I want studios to be able to do what they want. Otherwise we wouldn't have gotten Horizon this gen.

Totally agree. I want more studios, butt they decide the work they'll do.

If I was the big boss of Sony I would buy From Software and Square Enix.

Though you could argue that I'm reacting more as a gamer than a CEO but one could wonder if these two are really that much incompatible?

Sony got the adventure genre down no doubt. but we don't really have a source of FPS games (stuff like resistance should be made inhouse). or arcade racers.

with SIE kodera saying there will be more exclusives what do you guys think? will we see Sony acquire more studios. yes they are definitely pushing out the most exclusives atm. but diversity is lacking imo. again not limited to them but this is my subject for today.

 

should they work with 3rd party devs. especially japanese devs for those?.

 

idk if GG should go back to fps games. probably should stick to open world games after HZD.  but idk I might be biased but I love single player shooters that are as good as resistance it was easily my favorite camapign shooter trilogy last gen. and I do like the bethesda shooters just not nearly as much

I do find it strange that Sony never developed a top-tier FPS franchise.  Considering how good their recent first-party offerings have been, I'd certainly support any efforts made to expand the range of those offerings.  

With that said, if you want a bigtime FPS, I'd think you'd turn to a western (North American, really) developer, as that's where all of the big ones come from.  There's probably no reason that it has to be that way, as great games can be made anywhere.  But, the reality is that the FPS talent seems to be mostly outside of Japan.
