989 Studios was a division of Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) that developed games for the PlayStation consoles and Windows personal computers. Their titles include Twisted Metal 3 and 4, Syphon Filter and Syphon Filter 2, Jet Moto 3, Bust a Groove, and others. It now exists as the 989 Sports brand owned by SCEA that produces sports titles.

The 989 Sports title evolved from a long history of name changes and corporate shuffling within Sony centered around operations in Foster City, California. Around August 1995, Sony Imagesoft was merged with the product development branch of of SCEA, becoming Sony Interactive Studios America (SISA). Sometime after April 1998, SISA was renamed to 989 Studios. The 989 name came from their street address, 989 E. Hillsdale Boulevard in Foster City. The part of 989 developing EverQuest (and other online and PC games) broke off to become an independent studio named Verant Interactive in early 1999. On April 1, 2000, 989 Studios was merged back into SCEA and SCEA continues to release sports games under the 989 Sports brand.

In late 1998, when Eidos Interactive bought Psygnosis' European operations. Psygnosis' US operations were folded into 989 Studios (see [1]).
