Days after Gamasutra reported discrepancies in the list of third-party developers and publishers that Sony said was working on PlayStation 4 games, the publisher has now updated the list, giving a clearer picture of the support the upcoming hardware actually has.

We found last week that studios like Mojang and Vlambeer aren't working on PS4 games, despite being including in a press release for the hardware following its reveal.

Now Sony has quietly altered the list, completely changing the list of European studios that it says are working on titles for the PS4.

Notable omissions from the list now include the aforementioned Mojang and Vlambeer, as well as Angry Birds studio Rovio, and Trine developer Frozenbyte.

In their place, numerous new names have appeared including Splash Damage, Codemasters, Hello Games, 2K Games, and Sumo Digital.

However, despite the influx of new names the number of European studios now working on PS4 games, according to Sony, has dropped from 53 to 30.
