Yoshida on SOCOM: We ‘never retire any franchise’

Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios, wants to quell fears that we’ll never see another entry in the SOCOM franchise. Even though series creators Zipper Interactive was shuttered back in March, “never say never,” he said.

“It’s not done. We never retire any franchise,” Yoshida told Official PlayStation Magazine (via UK) when asked about future entries. Yoshida then pointed to Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the recent resurrection of the Sly Cooper series, as a sign. “It’s sometimes good to have a fresh look at the franchises we have.”

The last game in the series, SOCOM 4, was far from the series’ best. So while it’s hardly confirmation we’ll see a new SOCOM game in the future, at least Zipper’s closure is not the death knell we feared it was.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City as a Commodore 64 game

If you haven’t finished GTA: Vice City yet, you don’t want to watch this C64 demake because it totally ruins the ending. Then again, if you haven’t finished Vice City yet, you’re the biggest procrastinator we’ve ever met and maybe it’s time you caught up to the rest of the world.
