The first few years of any new console generation are exciting. It is a time when developers are cooking up new, risky IP’s and throwing them out there to see what sticks. A time when old favourites return with a new look or features thanks to the added power under the hood. It is also a time when studios, publishers and platform holders start to sort the wheat from the chaff. In this process, there are always IP’s that are left behind and Sony are one of the worst offenders in this respect. Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter, Medievil and Syphon Filter are all strong IP’s that have fallen by the way side after a new console generation has swooped in – but what of the PS3’s franchises?
Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet, InFamous, Killzone & Ratchet and Clank have all made the cut for PS4 but what will Sony be shelving from its other titles in the PS3 catalogue? We take a look at 6 Sony First Part owned IP’s that probably won’t be making the jump to PS4.
Can you imagine how good a WipEout game on the PS4 would be? Yes? Got that image in your mind? Now feel all of the crushing disappointment knowing that it probably will never happen. Ever since Liverpool Studios were shuttered, there has been complete radio silence on the series. Not even a whiff that there could be a sequel in the works. WipEout had lost some of its shine over the years but zero-g racing was always fun and it is a shame that it doesn’t sound like we will be getting another installment. Ever.
