The list of first-party studios internally owned by Sony runs deep. But how huge is the entire SCEWWS group, really?
Just to name a few... SCE Santa Monica (God of War), Incognito Entertainment (Warhawk), Team ICO (Colossus, Ico), Polyphony Digital (Gran Turismo), Naughty Dog (Jak & Daxter, Uncharted), Sony Bend (Syphon Filter, Resistance: Retribution), Guerrilla Games (Killzone), Evolution Studios (MotorStorm)...
During the GDC, John Koller reveals that their internally-run first party division is just about as big as what Microsoft and Nintendo have... combined!
Our development studios - the Worldwide Studios team - is as large as Microsoft and Nintendo s combined. We have a tremendously creative group, and a line-up for the next few years that will bring a lot of new IP to the market, but will also being a lot of [tried and tested] franchises and new iterations to the PS3 in particular, but also PSP
And yeah, their upcoming line-up of PSP and PS3 first-party titles are looking formidable. God of War III and MotorStorm: Arctic Edge, just to name a couple. Of course, if you extend that to external studios which develop exclusives for the PlayStation brand, you got other AAA titles like LittleBigPlanet, Patapon, etc.
