Sony classic coming to current systems, says job ad

Tuesday, 6th August 2013 05:16 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A new job ad posted by HD Collection developer Bluepoint Games suggests another classic Sony property is on the way to modern consoles.

“We are currently bringing a Sony classic to current game systems,” Bluepoint noted in a senior graphics progammer job ad.

The developer was responsible for the God of War Collection and ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection for PlayStation 3 and well as the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PS3 and Xbox 360.

It also created the engine for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which is cross-platform enabled on PS3 and Vita.

Naturally, we have no idea if the ad refers to PS3, PlayStation 4 or Vita, and it’s hard to guess which game from Sony’s truly extensive back catalogue might be getting the re-release treatment.

While you’re busy wondering which classic Sony property might be on the way, ponder the company’s other project – leveraging its technical knowledge for “an industry leading developer” on a “next-gen, blockbuster franchise”. Bluepoint tech used to power more cross-play titles for next-gen franchises? Please say it’s so.

Thanks, Gematsu. PlayStationLifestyle originally spotted this ad, as noted here.

    Dark Cloud series is very much possible as SOny published those games. Dragon Quest would be through Square so that isn’t possible.

    Shame, I’d love to have another go at DQ VIII…

    Rogue Galaxy maybe? I hope so. I tried playing it recently, but no widescreen option is really annoying.

    I wish they brought Jak X: Combat Racing with the Jak and Daxter HD remake. :( But oh well, bring on the next!

    Dark Cloud 1 & 2 would be great. I own the first one. Never got to play the 2nd one though.

    The fact that were all pretty much mentioning the same titles, Sony has done a good job with the HD collections.
    Just clutching at straws now..

    I wouldn’t say no to some Fantavision, but it’s hardly a classic.

    Parappa, maybe?

    Current game systems implies that it’s coming to 360 as well doesn’t it?
    As much as I’d love to jump into Dark Cloud 2 once again, I doubt this is the game/series in question.
    I’m hoping that it’s Onimusha.

    Then again, he might be implying that it’s coming to the PS3 and the Vita, in which case you could ignore everything I say.

    The only classics I want back is Spyro or Crash. Those made my childhood awesome. And Activision destroyed my childhood after they bought these two IPs…

    I would love to have Fatal Frame I, III and III: The Tormented perfectly ported to current-gen systems (with that I mean 360 and PS3). A PC version would KILL ASS too of course, I always thought those three games would play so beautiful on PC.

    Haunting Ground would be amazing too. That game was gorgeous. I wouldn’t care buying a single blu-ray disc for that one with full HD models, textures, cutscenes, menus, etc.

    PS: Bluepoint games REALLY NEED to polish their games a little more. God of War had awful and obvious mistakes, MGS HD Collection is full of clumsy little bugs… The only one 10/10 ported is Ico & Shadow of the Colossus.

    @14 Sorry but Fatal Frame/Project Zero is owned by Nintendo and Haunting Ground is owned by Crapcom.

    @15 – Partially owned by Nintendo. Still mostly owned by Tecmo-Koei, but they still have to get Nintendo’s permission for any new titles.

    The old titles, however, are in the process of being released as PS2 classics on the Playstation Network.

    @12 – Not really. If they’re saying a Sony classic, chances are that it’s going to be a first party title, in which case there wouldn’t be a 360 version.

    I would enjoy a revamped Destruction Derby game. And, I know it is PS2, but a redo of Champions of Norath I and II.

    If these games didn’t sell the first time they won’t sell now. Stop re-publishing your crap, $ony! Nobody wants them!
