Jaffe's new studio signs Sony agreement
God of War creator David Jaffe lifted the lid on his new development studio over the weekend - called Eat Sleep Play.
The new company has been launched in cooperation with Scott Campbell, boss of Incognito Entertainment, and together the industry veterans have formed the new firm which will be headed by Jaffe - who most recently created Calling All Cars for the PlayStation Network.
Incognito are part of Sony Computer Entertainment America's Santa Monica group of studios, and there are no signs of Jaffe abandoning Sony entirely. In fact, the new company has signed an exclusive three title console/handheld exclusivity deal with their debut due in 2008.
Eat Sleep Play will also port PSP hit Twisted Metal: Head On to the PS2 this Christmas. A number of tweaks and improvements are promised.
"We met with some other interested parties but at the end of the day Sony is our home, our family, and we're really thrilled and honored they wanted to work with us and continue the relationship we've spent almost fifteen years cultivating," enthused Jaffe. "So in many ways, it's like very little has changed, other than the pay cut."
