Sega leaks Sony PS3 secret plans

September 22, 2009 by Rob Knight  


In a move that will no doubt have Sonic wagging his finger furiously a news piece appeared and was then hastily removed on this morning blowing the cover on some on Sony’s upcoming plans for PSN network and backwards compatibility on the PS3.

Being quick on the mouse we managed to grab the below which details the juiciest details from this “secret” meeting

Sonic Anniversary
Could put out collectors edition with all old sonic games on one BD disc.

“Best of Sonic” for around $99.
SCEA would love PSN exclusive power ups/different game modes (like Castlevania’s flip it over/backwards)

PS2 emulator for PS3 (confidential)
SCEA wants to sell all PS2 titles on PSN (GTA Vice City/Sonic/etc)
For co Marketing money show PS3 controller on TV ads – similar to EA Madden Spots, NCAA, etc…

London Olympics
Perfect opportunity for Motion Controller integration.

DC Digital Titles
If we provide a list of DC titles SCEA will let us know which ones they’re interested in having exclusively.
If we give them a long period of exclusivity they’ll give us more marketing support.

PSP Titles
For SKU differentiation it’s best to offer features that are slightly different from PS3 version.
Titles that are coming up on PSP are Assassin’s Creed II, GTA China Wars, Resident Evil, Little Big Planet – all massive franchises.
SCEA has a specific PSP deck which they can send up with their hardware director for a chat.

Of the above it is no doubt the PS2 backwards compatibility and Dreamcast digital titles that will be most eagerly awaited….watch this space
