Report: Sony Internal Studios Cranking On PS4 Games
The last rumor we heard concerning the PlayStation 4 seemed kinda vague. All we knew is that it might launch in 2013, which doesn't mean a heck of a lot.
But is Sony already starting to allocate software development resources to their new piece of hardware? According to a Develop report, sources "within Sony's internal studio structure" have apparently confirmed that first-party teams have begun "preliminary work" on PS4 games. Yeah, you read that correctly.
Furthermore, a few of those teams might be able to enter the full production phase very soon. The report doesn't name names, so we just have to speculate: this could involve any studio; heavy hitters include Sucker Punch (inFamous, Sly Cooper), Naughty Dog (Uncharted), Sony Santa Monica (God of War), Polyphony Digital (Gran Turismo), and Guerilla Games (Killzone). Sony has some amazing teams under their umbrella so anything they do should be highly anticipated.
Sony has said from the start that the PS3 will have a 10-year lifespan. But remember, that doesn't mean the PS3 can't continue on after the PS4 launches. The PS2 went strong for quite a few years after the PS3 released, remember? The PS2 lasted a good 10 years if you look at it that way.
