    rollcage -the only good opponent for wipeout- was also made by psygnosys! i would like to see a third game from that series, maybe on psp..
    but also one of the worst game ever, "attack of the saucerman", is by psygnosys.. Just good that it was "hidden in the closet"..

    Let's stay on topic, please; this thread is for questions about Psygnosis history as an organisation, not about the games they've made, nor as a discussion thread for those games. If you wish to discuss Rollcage, please find or start a thread for it in the ''Offtopic'' section of the forums.

    psygnosys-as-a-company- has it's story, and its story is made of game and releases: rollcage is one of them..
    anyway, how many of the original psygnosys developers are still in SL?
    Could be interesting to know if it would be possible to see sequels to historic series, but maybe all depends now on sony's market strategies..

    The history of Psygnosis is made of the people and when they did what they did, and what changes occurred to the organisation. Discussion of the merits of games and wishlists for what new game releases you would like to see belongs elsewhere.

    Some of the members of the development teams are still there. Most are not.

    Production of sequels to old Psygnosis series is a decision of Sony's SCEE administrative body and is not in the hands of the studios.

    hmm... sony says that psygnosis is actually SL here:
    http://www.development.scee.net/profile_liverpool.html
    frow what I'm interpreting, it appears to be outdated and refuses to mention the existence of wipeout 3 and SE for some reason (http://www.development.scee.net/soft...liverpool.html), not very good for an official site

    It is a bit odd that they would refuse to acknowledge that Psygnosis was not just one studio, but a larger organisation. Refusal [if that's what it is] to mention the games done by the Leeds studio is interesting matter for speculation if one is so inclined. Why ignore a studio that was clearly part of Psygnosis, especially when SCEE marketed those games and still uses intellectual property from them? Wait a bit.. Hm... or maybe Leeds was nOt part of Psyggy when Psyggy was independent of Sony. Ah, well, I really don't care; it's just my detective instincts kicking in.

    Studio Leeds had already ceased to exist when Fusion was made, and the Psygnosis name had likewise ceased to be used by Sony.

    Studio Leeds were responsible for Wipeout 3 and Wipeout 3SE, which turned out to be their final project. Fusion was the first game in the series done by Studio Liverpool once all had been acquired by Sony.
