According to a report on industry site Develop, ‘trusted sources’ have confirmed that several of Sony Computer Entertainment’s internal studios are currently working on games for the company’s PlayStation 4.
While it’s claimed that work on PlayStation 3, Move and PS Vita games will remain the focus of Sony’s internal studio work ‘for years,’ preliminary work on PlayStation 4 games has already begun.
A few PS4 game projects are currently in the very early stages of development, but it’s currently unknown which of Sony’s studios are involved in these projects.
The full report can be read on Develop, but that’s the long and short of it.
We’ve seen rumours and reports of a supposedly ‘in production’ PlayStation 4 for some time now, with industry experts pointing to a 2014 release for Sony’s next home console.
Would a new game console really benefit gamers, or even game developers, when games available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are already so extraordinary? Would an extra layer of visual fidelity really add that much more enjoyment to our games? Or will console manufacturers instead choose to focus on next-generation media delivery and social connectivity with their upcoming hardware?
What do you want in your next-generation consoles?
