Topic starts out of its details being slipped out by a Sony PR between drinks but then famousmortimer, who has connections and has correctly leaked in the past, confirms that it is indeed true.

Gotta believe!

mortimer also states that this is but one of many old PlayStation IPs that will be revived and handled by an indie studio.

Mortimer -
What I know is "Sony approached (indie company) to make a new parappa game for the ps4." This happened a while back. Maybe that one fell through and now it's queasy..? Or maybe the drunk PR dude had the team wrong. I literally have no other details on the game than that. And the broad statement that this wasn't the only old IP they were trying to match with indies.


He said when he heard about t a while back it was for PS4 but it would not be surprising to now see it as PS4/Vita game.

the important part is that it might not be the only ip sony gave to indies, which lines up with exactly what i wanted sony to do: give old/ unused ips to indies and allow them to do their thing with it.

Not a very reliable source unfortunately, but one could only hope!

I speak the truth, deal with it.

sweet. its a good idea at a minimum.

i agree with a previous poster that sony (actually all studios) should give old IPs to lesser developers and let them have at it. could help spark the industry a bit. but that would be doing something for people and not profit so it will never happen...

He has been right on every leak, because be makes sure his sources are spot on before making a comment, so I don't know why you say it is not reliable.
