Who Sony’s Special gamescom Guest Could Be

Sony has revealed that there’ll be a “special guest” at gamescom working on an unannounced project, which will presumably be revealed at the show. So who do we think Sony’s special guest is? - PSLS (Chris Zimmerman, Gabe Newell, Guerrilla Games, Peter Molyneux, PS Vita, PS3, Stig Asmussen, Ted Price)

You have a better chance at Sony announcing a departure from the gaming industry and going third party lol, before Valve ever makes a Half Life game exclusive to a Sony platform or any console for that matter.

Kojima walks on stage. Teases MGS5 will be a remake of the original Metal Gear with Solid Snake facing off against Big Boss . . . . ON PS4!
Bam! PS4 unveiling with super detailed model of Snake.

@NathanExplosion - Woah, that's not a bad idea! Personally though, I want MGS5 to uncover more of Big Boss's life in the late 70s or the 80s.
Gaming101  +   1162d ago
lol wow, how nerdy are gamers that you needed to clarify the sarcasm on that joke lmao good Lord....

Anyway, who knows who it will be, I do get he feeling that if it's something huge it would have been announced at E3 a couple months ago, it may be someone announcing the slim PS3 model perhaps, but really who knows?
doctorstrange  +   1162d ago
Haha, yeah. And I still lost a bubble...

Being at gamescom is nothing to brag about as apparently this conference is dying as they sony are the only one going out of the big three and many devs are skipping it as well.

Being the only ones willing to spare time and effort to show GAMES at a GAMING convention as a GAME company is bad?

go take your fanboy troll nonsense elsewhere, sir!
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1163d ago
nope.. if anything l4d2 port that would be all.

I promise you half life 3 won't be shown on a console first. This is common sense as steam users would hand gabe's ass to him.

Foolsjoker  +   1163d ago
I say its going to be Kojima...That or Kevin Butler gave up PR and started working on something.
alexcosborn  +   1163d ago
Droppin' the MGS5 bomb.
Whitefeather  +   1163d ago
Again I wish, but I think he'll be announcing that at the 25th anniversary party on the 30th.
MattyG  +   1163d ago
@Whitefeather I actually think Kojima might tease MGS5 at Gamescom, and then show it off on the 30th. One can only hope.
TotalHitman  +   1162d ago
Kevin Butler isn't big outside of America. And Gamescom is in Europe. You may disagree because anybody who visits a gaming forum or a news site like this, probably knows who he is. But, those who don't, would be clueless as to who he is. So it's probably not him. I'm not ruling it out... I'm just saying that it's unlikely.
Whitefeather  +   1163d ago
I hope it's a revival of Eight Days developed by Rockstar.
alexcosborn  +   1163d ago
Surprise Agent reveal?
Whitefeather  +   1163d ago
I wish but looking at the article again I see it's an unannounced project. Hopefully it's a Vita game though for it's sake at least.
user5467007  +   1163d ago
I'd rather Rockstar work on what they already have now...let someone else make Eight Days.
Whitefeather  +   1163d ago
They have 10 studios I think Rockstar can pull it off.
dbjj12088  +   1163d ago
listenkids  +   1163d ago
I want to agree, but I see Koj as more of a TGS reveal kind of guy.

With Gamescon being EU, it'll most probably be Guerrilla games.
doogiebear  +   1163d ago
Kojima travels. He was just recently in Cali simply to just visit Naughty Dog. So I don't think it's beyond him to go to EU or reveal his next game at a non Japanese game convention.
user5467007  +   1163d ago
I would cry if it Half life 3 was announced...
Sev  +   1163d ago
A special guest appearance by me. /gamescom
cpayne93  +   1163d ago

Sev  +   1163d ago
I would make for a really interest guest appearance.
LUCKYXS7LEVEN  +   1163d ago
guys guys relax ...........
the guest will be no other than Zone Tan

Give me an original IP, your the only one getting them Sony.

Yeah, really gotta hand it to them for the support they've put into new IPs
representj  +   1163d ago
haha means no ps4 guys
BitbyDeath  +   1163d ago
Could be Ken Kutaragi to announce the PS4 :-p
Sev  +   1163d ago
That would ruin Sony if he had anything to do with the PS4. The PS3 set them back more than anyone could imagine.
Cryptcuzz  +   1162d ago
I honestly think that would be so awesome! Everyone gives him flak for being over ambitious with the PS3, but if you think about it, this is why the PS3 is still pumping out great games with awesome visuals til this day.

Ken is the father of Playstation and he always will be.

Paying homage to him and having him announce PS4 would be a move no one would see coming except for Bitbydeath :)
TronEOL  +   1163d ago
Once again, absolutely untrue.
The PS3 will continue to get games whether or not the PS4 comes out. Although I doubt we'll see them announce it at Gamescom, I can see it being announced before the end of 2013 and possibly even come out within the same year.

And you know what? Sony would still be bringing out games for PS3 in 2013 like they have planned now.
representj  +   1163d ago
not anytime soon lol
doctorstrange  +   1163d ago
no, it means they'll support the PS3 right up until the PS4 releases, and probably beyond
BitbyDeath  +   1163d ago
Going back to the original article it states thatgamecompany will be showing up. These guys have already fulfilled their 3 game contract. I wonder if this means we will get a buyout announcement at gamescom
TronEOL  +   1163d ago
See now that kind of sounds like an announcement you'd hear at Gamescom. That or something Gaikai related (although Gaikai might be saved for Playstation's own event).
RandomDude655  +   1163d ago
Better buy them out....then transfer Team Ico's remaining staff....a new Team Ico is born. Great game company seriously.
doogiebear  +   1163d ago
Much of TGC's team has disbanded though. Chen is still there but Kelly and a couple guys just ditched TGC. Hopefully Chen can hold it down alone. After all, he created Flow and Cloud mostly on his own.
HarryB  +   1163d ago
Its gotta be either an MMRPG or an extreme FPS game being announced. I doubt its going to be Gabe newell from valve, because valve dont need sony, and since this is an unannounced project its not going to be someone thats been working on any major projects.

My best bet is its Robert Bowling from ex infinity ward, and a possibility of another FPS game.
doogiebear  +   1163d ago
The last thing anyone would be excited about is the announcement of yet another fps game, especially since its an oversaurated market. Besides, were already gonna get Duat 514 free. Time for some refreshing spins on old genres, or perhaps some new IP's or genres
HarryB  +   1162d ago
Unless its something like mine craft or wow or an FPS game trust me its going to be another FPS game, because thats what majority of people you want. Its not going to be a tennis game, and its not going to be an old spin off those are all unsucessful like duke nukem. The main stream dont like old, they want new. And its gotta be an FPS game man thats the way it is.
representj  +   1163d ago

If you're expecting it to come in 2013, it won't release and i can gurantee you that.

Kingdom Hearts collection on vita and ps3.
srcBFMVBMTH  +   1163d ago
If it's a "special" guest then I doubt it would be someone who actually works at Sony. Lol. Probably a 3rd party dude.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1163d ago
Well I think the phrase has been used so much that the 2 words just go together. You would think special actually means special and it would be a 3rd party guy, but I wouldn't rule out someone from Sony.
remanutd55  +   1163d ago
whatever it is i want the game to be psvita exclusive.
JonnyBigBoss  +   1163d ago
It won't be Gabe.
snowman2149  +   1163d ago
I bet its gonna be Left 4 Dead 2 with all DLC and all campaigns from the first game, exclusive to the PS VITA with cross platform COOP..that would be quite nice
majiebeast  +   1163d ago
InTheLab  +   1163d ago
Hope it is Gabe so he can explain again why Steamworks only works with Portal 2...

Guerilla games head director making an announcement of a new Syphon Filter. Or a cross play of San Andreas between PS3 and Vita for Rockstar. Either one would be freckin awesome! :,)

i think that would be annouced at tokyo game show next mnth

Guerrilla Games it is if choosing from the article, it makes the most sense.
doctorstrange  +   1162d ago
Yup, I hope so, love new IPs
