Mystery PS3 Exclusive Could Be Quantic Dream's Project

So everyone is wondering about this secret PS3 exclusive that will be unveiled during the Spike TV Video Game Awards.

As usual, there are a ton of theories out there, but perhaps none fit as well as the following: Quantic Dream's new project.

We've already heard that it isn't the oft-discussed brawler featuring Sony mascots and in truth, we're sort of running out of options. It could be God of War IV but the way Keighley said it on Twitter ("PS3 exclusive you won't believe"), it's difficult to think we "wouldn't believe" a new GoW. Others have suggested Resident Evil 6, but that won't be exclusive, and we've already heard about games like The Last Guardian and Twisted Metal. It's too early for a new Uncharted unless Sony is going the dreaded "annualization" route...

It's also too early for Gran Turismo 6 and Metal Gear Solid 5; the former is gonna have a ridiculously long development cycle as usual, while Kojima has said his team hasn't even begun on the latter. And then there's Quantic Dream: Heavy Rain was a gigantic success, selling about ten times better than Sony initially anticipated, and it remains one of the most respected titles of the generation. Studio boss David Cage was obviously thankful for the response and made it clear that such a positive reaction would allow him to take the next step in interactive storytelling.

You may notice that we haven't heard much from him, either. At least, not recently. We get the feeling he and his team are working hard on something, and they are very happy with their Sony partnership; Sony took the risk and stuck with them during the Heavy Rain project, and Quantic Dream appreciates it. They've said that numerous times, too. Lastly, it's a favorable gap: Heavy Rain launched in February of 2010. If they unveiled a new game now, to be released in mid-to-late 2012, that would make sense.

...of course, now that we've said all this, we won't even be close. ;)

I think you might be reading too much into the phrase you would not believe. I highly doubt its QD'S new game. So much so I'd bet real money on it.

I do remember reading an interview with David Cage where he said their next title almost certainly won't be PS3 exclusive.

I do remember him talking about wanting to reach a larger audience with his next project. He said something along the lines of being multiplatform let's one do that.

@Excelsior1 & swapnilgyani: This is the only response I've heard stated by David Cage about exclusivity. I'm pretty sure Sony would be happy to publish his next game.


Eurogamer: Will your next project be a PS3 exclusive, and if so would you use 3D or motion control?

David Cage: [long pause] We are interested in both. In 3D and motion control. The very first game design of Heavy Rain was based on a motion controller, actually, that we designed ourselves. We wanted to use the Dual Shock and clip a plastic part on it with three little lights that would be detected by the EyeToy. That was four years back, so we suggested the design to Sony but it was not feasible at the time, so we agreed to go back to Dual Shock.

But we've had an interest in motion control for a very long time, and all of Heavy Rain's interface is really designed around motion. So we have a lot of interest in this motion controller, we start to play with it, and yeah, we definitely want to do something with it.

Now, is it going to be a PlayStation 3 exclusive? Well, that really depends on the publisher of Quantic Dream's next game. If it's Sony again, yeah no doubt it's going to be exclusive.

David Cage has never once said his next title "most certainly won't be a PS3 exclusive."

That's wrong.

Okay, admittedly, I was way off with the quote.

Here's what the main actually said:

“The question is more for us now, with Heavy Rain it was right, but after Heavy Rain the question can be asked whether we should stick to one platform or open out to different platforms. Now that we’re established why are we limiting ourselves to one share of the market when we can reach more. There are pros and cons and it’s not an easy decision.”

Does hint at a strong possibility of a multiplat...

I thought that Smash Bros type title was already announced on some paul network place or something(that I'd never heard of before) almost a month ago?

Seems to me that a title like that would be geared more towards a younger crowd and doesn't really entice me. Although, I can only imagine the number of units sold by nintendo of that game. Cash generator...

A new QD title would be nice and fit that quote if they've grown and expanded from what they created with the fantastic Heavy Rain game.

Stay Classy PSX...

I doubt it, but I'd be happy if it was their game, possibly Infraworld. QD will probably be taking their time so much so it will go into next gen. If it's Spike, it's probably not that big of a deal.

This is off topic but did anyone else notice Sony took away the ability to copy PSone games from your PS3 to your PSP with the 4.00 update?

Freaking annoying! This removing of features is getting freakin old.

That sucks. Sounds like they are trying to force people to buy the games again for the Vita. Very MS like. Yes, removing features is annoying. I dare-say that tactic has been a source for some of the negativity surrounding Sony this gen.

I think they're just trying to mitigate the losses from game sharing which is understandable but this is a pointless and stupid way to go about it. When I download a movie or song from Apple to iTunes, I then have the ability to copy that content to any of my Apple devices as along as those devices are tied to my Apple account. I can't share that content with other Apple device users because their device is tied to their account. This should be no different. Sony is smart enough to make their network work the same but for some reason they punish the many because of the actions of the few. I there was no other way, I would understand but with the Apple example, it proves there are other alternatives than to removing the feature completely.

Now you will have to download them to your PSP directly which is painfully slow. If you want them on both devices you will have to download them twice.

Okay, I just tested this. Its weird that they changed it but it seems now that when you download the PSOne classic you have to copy the file that sits in the Game section you use to actually install the game now. You know when ever you download a new game, there is a file sitting in the game section you have to click on to install it? Well you can copy THAT to you PSP and it just installs it to your PSP.

It's odd that they changed it to that but it still seems you can copy PSOne games to you PSP. You just have to use the install file instead of the actual installED file. Also after you install the PSOne classic it no longer automatically deletes the install file. You will have to delete it manually.

I sure hope it's Quantic Dream. I FINALLY got Heavy Rain last week and beat my first playthrough yesterday. For some reason there was always a game that I wanted more and I don't have a lot of money to spend, so it just kept getting pushed aside.

That was dumb of me.

http://share.blog.us.playstation.com/ideas/2011/07/26/socom-1-hd/

"Remake SOCOM 1 in HD, why?
-It was the first online console shooter
-It sold 3.44M copies
-Once profits soar S2 maps can be DLC
-It was revolutionary
-The return of classic multiplayer is crucial"

Sorry for being off topic.

i don't think it will be QD. after the success of HR i don't see how their next project would be something we "won't believe!!". plus i just don't think the VGA's are the place QD would announce it. just seems out of place for them. E3 is more their style. And if you look back they've historically been a one title per generation developer. just what i think.

No need to be a tw@. Most responses seem to be read by members, and replied to if they feel the need to say something. Go tell Activision that you want Crash, maybe they'll shoehorn him into Skylanders 2.

But in any case I agree with him, I would love a Crahs Bandicoot game, I have been sceratly hoping he'd appear on this Playstation Smash Bro's as a nice introduction and then relase a Crash title. Not all the titles after Naughty Dog were bad, just look at Twinsanity.

id love a crash game as much as the next guy, if not more its my favourite franchise of all time!
though i dont think i can handle seeing my favourite mascot dragged through the mud again.
if antivision did to crash what they did to spyro in skylander adventures, well, they would wish they never existed.
id settle for a crash 1,2,3,CTR and bash HD collection.

Could be QD's next. Doubt it though. Could be Santa Monica's next... they're about due, but I hope it isn't GoW IV. Kratos deserves a rest. I don't think that any of their other first party studios would have anything else ready, unless maybe Sony Japan with a new RPG. *fingers crossed*

I think that it's likely to be the brawler, but I'm not sure that I could get behind it. Could also be DONTNOD's Adrift, though I think that was supposed to have gone multiplatform. What I wouldn't be able to believe is Heavenly Sword 2 with NT back at the helm. It wouldn't actually surprise me, considering the poor commercial reception of Enslaved and the backlash against DmC, and Sony doesn't seem to like to burn bridges. Could be a new Insomniac project too. Sure, Overstrike is multiplat, but they've said they want to keep doing exclusives as well. Might be too early for it though.

Another possibility is Jak and Daxter 4, though ND wouldn't be behind it, obviously. I'd imagine a Sly scenario with the Classics HD developer, Mass Media Inc. handling it. My final thought is a wild card: Ready at Dawn. They did 3 PSP games, and have been developing a new engine for consoles since the end of '09. Sure, they released GoS at the tail end of last year, but if I remember correctly, only ten members worked on the Remaster Edition of their GoW games, which leaves over a year for work to have begun on a new game, with an engine that must have been close to ready at that point. Although maybe they'll just be doing more Vita games.
Peace.

NO WAIT!!!
You know what would REALLY blow my mind?
Valkyria Chronicles 4, plus reworked versions of the PSP games to give them bigger battlefields, etc. to bring them more in line with the console versions.
Egads, I just got myself hopeful...

This is what I am hoping for, I loved Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) & Heavy Rain. David Cage has mentioned he'd like to do something different, so I am very curious to see where this will lead + its been over a year now, time to share some light.

If not that an exclusive Metal Gear title? - Which I am still sceptical about. It won't be GTA or anything by Capcom. If its God of War IV I won't be to fussed as I neevr really got into that series.
