What Third-Party Games Do You Want on PlayStation? Tell Sony's New Division

Posted by Sammy Barker

The only place to play

Not content with the avalanche of titles currently confirmed for the various PlayStation platforms, Sony has established a brand new division dedicated to bringing third-party content to its consoles. Creatively dubbed Third-Party Production, the new unit will focus on porting and localising games for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita.

Announced during a PAX Prime 2013 panel overnight, the division was founded as a result of the recently announced Borderlands 2 port for the Vita. Gio Corsi, a former lead producer at LucasArts and executive producer on the now-defunct Star Wars 1313, has been hired to run the operation. You can pester him for ports on Twitter.

This is enormous news, because it now means that there’s an avenue for titles such as, say, Yakuza 5 to release overseas. While publisher SEGA may not be too keen on the idea of bringing the game to the west, theoretically Corsi and his crew could work with the Japanese company to get it localised. It also means that there’s hope for more Vita releases of big games.

So, what third-party content that isn’t currently in the pipeline would you like to see released on the numerous PlayStation platforms? Feel free to plead your case in the comments section below, and we’ll send this thread to Corsi at the end of the day.

This is huge, especially for the Vita. Do you know how many Vita games there are in Japan?

First Vita: Jump-Stars Victory Vs, Phantasy Star Online 2, Mind Zero, Tales of Hearts R, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2, Gundam Breaker, Hyperdimension Idol Neptunia PP, Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth, Hyper Goddess Faith Noir, etc.

PS3: Yakuza 5 and that's about it.

PS4: N/A

Gradius V. More shmups! Proper, fully fledged shmups.
They were criminally few & far between on PS3, and still on Vita.
My PS2 was brimming with quality shmups - a lot of them imported admittedly, but yeah, shmups!

As long as the Tales games come stateside and we FINALLY get Final Fantasy Type-0, I'll be a happy camper. Well, I won't be camping, lack of electricity and whatnot to play games, but I would happily set up a tent in my room to further seclude myself into the gaming realm.

Dynasty Warrior 8: Empires on PS4 sounds like a great idea. Those games could really use the extra power and I loved Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires.

Just give us the HD versions of Treasure's games that are on Xbox Live. Radiant Silvergun HD, Bangai-O HD and Guardian Heroes HD on Vita? Yes please.

Oh, and give @get2sammyb Yakuza 5 so he changes his DP on here to one of him crying and some Miku-chan for @MadchesterManc and I.

Also over 550 comments demanding localisations, a few similar names on that list.

@rastamadeus With some of my Hatsune Miku concerts dvd's arriving from Japan the other day Ive come to the conclusion that you can never have too much Miku-chan. So give me some more games! It still baffles how Sega hasn't localised the Vita version of Project Diva F for at least a digital release on Vita too. Im hoping decent sales of the Ps3 version will get them into the groove to do so. If not, ill just import lol

Wouldn't mind the Hyperdimension Neptunia games on Vita getting localised myself. Theres 3 in Japan (Idols, Rebirth and a Noire spin-off) If thismove means more announcements similar to Borderlands 2 on Vita or more localisations then Im all for it. It can't be a bad thing.

Let's see.

  • To The Moon. Beautiful game, but playing it on PC feels like trying to read a great book in a browser. I want to curl up in bed or on the couch with it, and the Vita is perfect for that.
  • Kingdom Hearts. Obviously ports of I and II would be great, but what I'd like is for Birth by Sleep - still unplayable on Vita due to never ending up on the PS Store - to get a 544p60 Vita port, for Dream Drop Distance to get the same, and for them to be released together for Vita.
  • Street Fighter. All of it - SSF2T HD Remix, Third Strike Online, and - when it hits next year - Ultra Street Fighter 4.
  • Resident Evil Revelations. That fact that it's on everything but Vita is, frankly, dumb. It was made as a portable title, it belongs on the Vita. Resident Evil 4 too. That's on every major platform, it would likely be simple to port to the Vita and would look fantastic.
  • Final Fantasy Type-0 really needs a Western release, and at this point it might as well get a Vita port. It's a Final Fantasy game, it would easily sell.
  • Either get FF7: Crisis Core on the PS Store with Vita compatibility, or port it to Vita. Maybe port Dirge of Cerberus too and sell them as a single-card collection.
  • Get a Vita-exclusive entry in the Souls franchise, designed around the controls for the sake of balance. I even have a nice title - Wandering Souls.
  • I'd love to see Mass Effect 3's excellent multiplayer mode released in its entirety as a free-to-play download (it already has a perfectly fair and lucrative microtransaction system built-in) on PS4, PS3 and Vita, with cross-play over those 3 consoles and PC (since it's a co-op game where your individual match score has no real effect the differences between the platforms wouldn't result in major balance problems - plus, you could opt-out of playing with people on certain platforms if you wished). Bit of a pipe dream but I genuinely believe it would make plenty of money and greatly extend the life of what I think is a hugely enjoyable and varied co-op game.
  • Finally, since this would likely be easy to do, an 'id Old-School Collection' for Vita. Ultimate DOOM, DOOM 2, Master Levels For DOOM 2, Final DOOM, and the Heretic/Hexen games, complete with online and ad-hoc multiplayer. Easy for the Vita to run, and immensely fun to this very day.

@NGF Impossible, since Nintendo funded development. Bayonetta 1 on PS4 would rule though. The PS3 port of the first one was awful - a 1080p60 PS4 version would really let it shine.

NGF said:

@BreakAtmo
I know it's hard, but it's not impossible.
Bayonetta IP belongs to SEGA. So some kind of "Bayonetta Sigma 2" version is possible. Just like Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. I think if SEGA and/or Sony are interested in a Bayonetta 2 port for PS4, it may happen. specially now that SEGA is doing really better.:

http://segabits.com/blog/2013/07/31/sega-sammys-net-income-up-400-from-last-year/

A Bayonetta Collection including Bayo1 and Bayo 2 for PS4 would be amazing too. Imagine 1080p60fps Bayonetta 1 & Bayonetta 2 XD

TIMESPLITTERS!!!!!!

Please oh Please!!!!

Such a great series. Timesplitters 4 was in development when Crytek Studios bought rights and pulled the pug. There is an ongoing petition on facebook to finish the game.

I would LOVE to see Timesplittlers 4 on PS4 & Vita!!!

Crash Bandicoot & Spyro

We had them 2 franchises on Gameboy Advance which they were great!
Why not PSvita get atleast them kind of games based on them 2 characters.

We need Activision to do those kind of Crash Bandicoot games by making them as Platform kind like on the GBA and Take only Spyro from Skylanders to do games based only about him.

Activision hasnt touched the IP of Crash for Years and dont think they will ever do anything Unless something must be done while Hardcore fans are missing the Spyro Only kind character of games.

@Sanquine

As far as I know, Remedy is not owned by MS so it's free to take its games wherever it wants. If Sony were to pony up the dough, I'm sure a situation could be worked out where it brings Quantum Break over to PS4.

@dpriest This is just for third-party titles, so inFamous and Killzone don't belong here (though I would also kill to have them on Vita). Dark Souls... that game requires some fine balance, and I'm worried that Vita's lack of L2/R2 and L3/R3 and probable touchscreen/touchpad replacements would play havoc with that - I'd prefer a Souls game built for Vita from the ground up, designed around its controls.

Fallout 3/NV, though? HELL yes. the many menus - VATS, traders/merchants, dialogue - would be so much better with the touchscreen. Plus, y'know, all those other awesome things about Fallout. On that note, chuck in Oblivion and Skyrim. And Morrowind, that could run on the Vita easily.
