Kill Strain and Entwined. What could these be?
There are two things, one which we can be absolutely sure of, and one which we can be reasonably sure of: we can be absolutely sure that Sony will fund and produce some new IPs for the PlayStation 4 in house, given that their first party efforts have always been marked by creatively risky and unique ventures, unlike the reliance on established franchises that characterizes their competitors.
The second thing, which we can be reasonably sure of, is that Sony is holding back some big guns for the PS4 for E3 this year, since the release slate for that system is completely barren right now. A popular theory holds that Sony is simply going to go all in during E3, and that they don’t want to blow their load early. New evidence lends more credence to that theory.
On April 14, Sony filed for two new ‘computer game software’ trademarks- Killstrain and Entwined. We know absolutely nothing more about these two, except for the fact that they are, in fact, expected to be games. Whether they are massively multiplayer online games by Sony Online Entertainment, or new IPs that Sony plans on introducing for the PS4 this E3, is a point of contention right now.
E3 is just a few weeks away, but we’ll keep you posted on all the latest and greatest in the run up to gaming’s biggest event of the year, so stay tuned.
