The question posed to Yoshida was simple: “Is it fair to say that all of the first party studios are working on PS4 games?” Yoshida’s answer was just as simple: “Is it fair or not fair? It is fair to say.”
Even in light of Sony’s dueling ecosystems – PS3, Vita and the upcoming PlayStation 4 – it may not come as a surprise to the uninitiated that Sony’s studios would be working on next-gen content. But in some cases, it definitely is.
The biggest surprise for us, however, is that Yoshida’s comments seem to confirm that Sony Bend is working on a PlayStation 4 title. This is shocking, in a sense, as Sony Bend hasn’t created a console-dedicated game since 2004, and only ported a couple of its latter Syphon Filter titles to PS2 only after bringing them to PSP. Sony Bend has since been dedicated to Sony’s handhelds, but Yoshida’s comment indicates that this may no longer be the case.
Of course, we already know about three other Sony-owned studios’ PS4 games: Sucker Punch is working on Infamous: Second Son, Guerrilla Games is working on Killzone: Shadow Fall and Evolution Studio is working on DriveClub.
