There are plenty of things that excite us about PlayStation right now, but the third-party productions team is one area that has all of Push Square Towers giddy. Over the years, we've been conditioned to believe that ports and localisations are down to their respective publishers, but over the past 12 months, Sony's stepped in to help make things like Borderlands 2 Vita and Grim Fandango happen.
And it was immediately on the case when critically acclaimed indie Gone Home was quietly cancelled for the PlayStation 4. The first-person exploration title was announced for Sony's next-gen system last year, but the breakdown of publisher Majesco means that developer Fullbright is now focusing all of its attention on intergalactic escapade Tacoma.
Fortunately, the platform holder has other ideas. "Will gladly reconnect and chat with [the team]," said Gio Corsi, who's the director of the Japanese giant's third-party productions division. The department's currently got its work cut out, with the PS4 version of Ultra Street Fighter IV on its slate, but Gone Home was such a critical darling that we'd love to see it added to the organisation's list.

I was heartbroken when I found out this was cancelled for PS4. Come on Sony, make us proud.
I've always wanted to play this, never understood why there was so much hate towards this game.
@Shellybird27 It invoked similar reactions to The Order, I think. People have an idea of what games are in their head, and heaven forbid something step outside of that.
@get2sammyb except publications formed their own ideas of what the order was going to be and not what the devs were trying to actually convey to them
@viciousarcanum Some did. But let's not pin it all on the press - consumers were cautious, too.
Why exactly people excited for this game ? it was a meh game, 2 hours long, no replay value and to be fair what you were supposed to "feel" with this game, while decent, it wasnt worth it... and i found every single thing in the game.
I'd pick it up on Plus and play the crap out of it...but I doubt I'd actually buy it...
Sounds like my kinda game, variety is needed indeed
@get2sammyb That's not fair the order has actual game play and can't be beat in 45 seconds. Gone Home is a dull experience wrapped in 90's references that a lot of people were sold on as a horror game and when it wasn't they were not happy.
I would very much like this on my PS4.
@get2sammyb Turns out it was very good.
Anyiclimactic ending but ultimately a well paced decent story and goid handling!
