A studio made up of five ex-Sony developers has explained why it left the comfort of PlayStation development to go indie.
Eight Days, a PlayStation 3 exclusive cancelled in 2008, would have been "jaw-dropping", according to one developer who worked on the game.
Richard Bunn, who left Sony earlier this year to co-found Crazy Horses developer Nice Touch Games, told Eurogamer some of Eight Days' unannounced features "would have definitely impressed" had it made it out the door.
Eight Days was a third-person action game in development at Sony Computer Entertainment's London studio.
Sony London producer Nicolas Doucet has revealed that PS3 games The Getaway 3 and Eight Days were in the second-half of development and not binned at all.
Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has revealed more about why The Getaway PS3 and Eight Days were cancelled - stating that both titles were only in the pre-production phase.
Sony has officially stopped work on Eight Days and The Getaway for PS3.
Sony London has begun full production on PS3 third-person shooter Eight Days.
"The next generation doesn't start until we say it does," says Kaz Hirai. Then again, Sony's E3 conference didn't start when it said it did, so who's counting?
