Sony secures its new first party studio named PixelOpus in which the studio's very first game to be revealed next week at E3

man things getting more exciting the closer we get to E3!

http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/06/01/sony-trademarks-pixelopus-before-unveiling-of-new-studio/

Sony Computer Entertainment filed for the registration of the trademark “PixelOpus” with the US Patent and Trademark office.

This actually tells us that PixelOpus (“Opus” means “Work” in Latin) is a full fledged first party studio owned by Sony, since the house of PlayStation filed for ownership of the trademark. If it was just a second party initiative, or a third party under the wing of the publisher, the studio itself would have filed for the registration of the name independently.

Why do you care so much about it, my petit weeaboo? Is there any reason to be excited?

#3 Posted by Blabadon (26164 posts) -

Yeah, I found it cool how the class they started from used the Vita as their catalyst for designing and learning from basic games.

Um.. should be pretty evident by the OP, but let's break it down.

Sony gains another first party studio and also their first game will be revealed next week at E3.

The possibility of a cool, new game? That sounds like exciting news to me.

Yeah but the OP doesn't even have PS4, and there's no info on what they're working on. it may as well be some shovelware garbage. What's more, we don't even know if the studio is major or not. It might have been set up just to develop indie games.

Google'd Pixel Opus in hopes to find out more about them... found this instead

http://icarly.wikia.com/wiki/Pixel_Opus_Arcade_Inc.

Pixel Opus Arcade Inc. is an arcade company from iCarly and the parody of NAMCO.

Pak-Rat, from the episode iStage An Intervention, is a video game from Pixel Opus Arcade Inc.

Wonder if they'll be making large scale retail titles or cheesy downloadable games.

Sounds like a small arcade game studio. Don't care

What cows fail to understand is this is not good news.

Lol wot?

Oh yeah I forgot, lemmings think that having less first-party is good right? Just look at the weak Xbox first-party, pathetic.

#17 Edited by Lulu_Lulu (11818 posts) -

@Suppaman100

I don't what lemmings think.

Anyway..... 1st Exclusivity doesn't benefit you.... It doesn't benefit the studio either. It wouldve been good news had a indipendent publisher aquired the studio.... That way you every body gets to play it... Including cows. With a larger market that going Multiplatform provides the studio will benefit more and can make more games.... For everyone....

Have you guys given gamers who play on mobile devices a name yet ? I don't think you have.......

In this day and age, consoles need first-party devs to set themselves apart from eachother since there is less second-party than before. Its true that it would be better if this did not exist but then what would set these consoles apart? Not much.

And it's something that won't change, I expect it to get even more like this. Console companies will buy more and more devs to get more exclusives.

"....consoles need first-party devs......"

It doesn't matter what they need.... You're a gamer, not Console Manufacturer, their needs are not your own.

".....what would set these consoles apart? Not much."

True but thats rather irrelevant.... If console gaming is illogical then perhaps you should aim to fix it instead of accepting things the way they are just because its easier for those of you who do have the console to play the exclusive games. It becomes rather ridiculous when you won't two consoles, two identicle machines just for the sake of exclusives.

"And it's something that won't change......"

I agree with you here.... Its definately not going to change because people jump for joy when somebody else can't play a game because the only difference between your machine and theirs is just the logo. When did this level of stupidity amongst gamers become so cool ?

@spitfire-six: it kind of is, people like to gloat about exclusives coming out on there chosen system.

I hope this means something to us in the near future. Good for us gamers though.

I'm so stupid...... I completely forgot.....

Being stupid has always been cool. Its nothing new. Its just human the human condition in all its decrepid glory. Being stupid is what makes us human...... Still I'm not going to "bend and spread" and let social norm have their way with me. We should try to be better, no matter how unhappy it makes us.

Well I tend to stay away from this particular forum but it seems like most of the gaming news is posted on this forum rather than "Games Discussion" or their respective platform discussion. And seriously system wars is just sad.

Then Lets Unite and take the war to them.

Lets fight against the lack of backwards compatibilty. Lets fight against the horrible behavior in multiplayer games.

Lets fight against the rampant descrimination, like racism and sexism and all the other "-isms".

Lets fight against DRM and anti-consumer policies and practices.

Lets take this war to exactly where it belongs, to the people at Microsoft and Sony. Lets see them them defend all this bullshit that all gamers have had to endure in System Wars and in real life.

Are you still asshurt over the retraction of DRM? Wow you need some new material that involves current events.

Sony DriveClubz DRM and backtrack debacle

Killzone 1080p multiplayer lie

Watchdogs 1080p/60fps lie

Last year the 360 had one retail exclusive and most other games were XBLA titles......

I'm sorry but what are you trying to prove? A games, a games a game. No matter how you spin it

it would if you can only afford one console. it mattered for me much of last gen since i didnt end up getting a 360 until 2012. you dont have to be a fanboy to know that whatever system you pick you hope for the best content.

i was pissed when most third party exclusives for the ps3 went multi plat. i paid for a more expensive system for many reasons but one of them were the exclusives which became irrelevant once final fantasy, dmc, & tekken went multi plat. that meant ps3 didnt have the best game possible since 360 was easier to develop for. ps3 was getting crap versions of multi plats...

you dont have to be a fanboy for exclusives to matter.
