A Mysterious Trailer Comes from PlayStation - My Ideas On What It Could Be Driving Hype For

Chris Penwell from PlayStation Euphoria writes: PlayStation have revealed a new 16 second trailer called "The Reload" which is very similar to the previous ad campaign called "Michael." Here is what I think it could be. (inFamous: Second Son, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, Tag Invalid, The Reload)

This might be a story trailer for Cole in Playstation All-Star Battle Royal. I would love to hear its for a New Infamous for the PS3, but I though it would be a Launch title for the next Playstation. Or maybe a spin-off for the Vita in the infamous World.

***Launch date***.... of the new store in the US...Is what this is IMHO...

New Infamous would be a possibility...

In a perfect World it would be *Media Molecule* announcing/showing off there new up-coming IP. Oh well one can dream....

Didn't that already happen....Tearaway?
Freak of Nature  +   1207d ago

No it's another IP, Tearaway is for the Vita...

The one I am talking about is the "very ambitious project" with millions of R&D behind it.
FunAndGun  +   1207d ago
ah ok, didn't know there was also a MM project for the PS3. carry on with your dreams! :)
GraveLord  +   1207d ago
Why would they do this kind of trailer for the playstation store? Besides WE ALREADY KNOW ABOUT IT! This is a TEASER for something. It's obviously Playstation All-Stars related so I'm guessing its a new character reveal.

If not, then its just a continuation of the ad campagin from last year. It was extremely successful.(11 million+ views on Youtube)
DeadlyFire  +   1207d ago
This is 100% playstation advertisement for PS3 and PS Store likely tied into it in some way. Possible some surprise mixed into it, but I suspect another commercial promoting Playstation for the sales season.
Campy da Camper  +   1207d ago
If they announced a new infamous I would shit green egg rolls.
Spenok  +   1206d ago
This makes the most sense. As the 23rd is the US launch date of the new PS3 interface.
SandWitch  +   1206d ago
Who in the world would advertise a Store update? It does not make any sense.

I think it's either PSASBR related (Ape Escape character announcement?) or a new Michael trailer.

In a perfect it would be a double announcement of inFamous for PS3 and Ape Escape for VITA. Or vice versa.

P.S. Love the music in this teaser, listening over and over

"inFamous on the Vita would be a dream come true"

Vita needs it's own games not a constant stream of ported games from the PS3.

It might Be Conker's return?!!!
The_Devil_Hunter  +   1206d ago
inFamous FPS?? Hope not.
Mykky  +   1206d ago
Most likely something for All Stars as it is the same date as the beta goes live for everybody. There is a gun from Metal Gear Solid, A shadow of the wander from Colusses when the lightning flashes, "Saru! Get You!" on the sign Which is from Ape Escape, A PS clock, lightning from inFamous.

So tell me, why would there be something Ape Escape releated to a inFamous 3 teaser? A new micheal trailer or PS All Stars.
Ezetta  +   1206d ago
Because we know that this is the bar we saw in the Michael-trailer, and too establish that, they placed it in.

And there is much focus on whoever comes in the door, who seems to either: A) A newcommer who is about to join the rest of the Sony characters in the bar, or B) A character who has returned to the bar at a later period (seeing as this would be Coles return from the dead, it would fit).
Mykky  +   1204d ago
It is not the bar from Micheal and you are ignoring the other clues. it is NOT inFAMOUS 3!!!
FamilyGuy  +   1206d ago
The sign on the desk says "SARU!" "GET YOU", and it kinda looks like it says "Get Out" when it's flickering. I'm thinking this is gonna be a game announcement for something in the horror genre.

Looks like it says Raccoon City next to the light sign, which would be resident evil. The city named is heavily distorted though. What was the city in infamous called, maybe it says that one.

People are all just assuming its infamous based on the electricity effects alone, it could be metal gear rising or anything really.

Would love to get a new InFamous. But I hope they take it in a new direction, still open world but him fighting more super powered villains. They need to establish a world like DC/Marvel.

Would be cool if they even got some DC/Marvel characters to appear in the game.
Conzul  +   1206d ago

What makes inFamous so cool is it's complete originality and disconnection from other heroes. It's in a world all of its own.
mt  +   1206d ago
I agree with you, it needs more remarkable villains. those kinds of villains that stick with you in the upcoming infamous games.
BigStef71  +   1207d ago
Michael Part 2?
one2thr  +   1207d ago
Thats part of the "To Micheal" commercial, but my guess is inFamous... Or it could be an introduction to the new PlayStation Store *Them shutting down the old one, turning on the new one*... But if its going along with their current trend, then heck its bound to be good.
**Just notice that the girl was cleaning a gun, so it could be anything**
Get some

this, same day as the new store (well it's been delayed), so I'm assuming it's this
ZoyosJD  +   1206d ago
With the sound of electricity, and the lighting flashing a blue has got to be InFamous related.
blackblades  +   1207d ago
That's the girl from that michael ad, so I'll say a teaser of a new ad, remember they teased michael ad.
FamilyGuy  +   1206d ago
All the characters in the Michael ad were characters from playstation video games, all except michael himself. So if you can figure out what game this chick was supposed to be from you'll figure out what game this is related to.

Could just wait a few days for the full reveal though :/

Advertisement for winter season.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   1207d ago
Am I wrong for analyzing the trailer too thoroughly for a hint of Folklore 2?
FunAndGun  +   1207d ago
That would be so damn amazing if it happened! I just don't see it coming true. :(
Blastoise  +   1207d ago
Lol never gonna happen unfortunately. :(
Heavenly King  +   1207d ago
Even though the IP is of Sony, the developer (Game Republic) is dead.
chrispseuphoria  +   1207d ago
I would love that.
Run_bare  +   1206d ago
I Love Folklore, I hope some good developer take the IP on after Game Republic demise.

I want a sequel :)
YourFlyness  +   1207d ago
Infamous MMO staring Michael (YOU)!!! (think City of Heros)

IRetrouk  +   1207d ago
Could it be for the agency? After seeing the pics of it on the new store and the add being called reload makes me think it could be for that.
Godchild1020  +   1206d ago
That was the first thing came to mind when I read the title of the Video and also how the 'The agency' image showed up on the PSN store the last couple of days.

After seeing the Video, I came across the idea that it has to do with PSASBR or a new Infamous title.

Hope so, but it seems early...
jakmckratos  +   1206d ago
It's called the reload. That girl you see is the same one who serves as the girl at the desk in the "For Michael/Long live Play" commercial. Last time something like this got teased(which was just about last year if I remember) it ended up being a commercial so I'm not expecting a new game..but if I were I'd expect some sort of shooter sequel..perhaps resistance is getting done by a different developer or KZ4 is set to be announced...I'd love to see Infamous 3 but I really believe that will be a PS4 launch title
brew  +   1206d ago
Maybe another donwloadable inFAMOUS game is coming? Festival of Blood was highly successful for them.
Knushwood Butt  +   1206d ago
Wish that would come to Japan...
PirateThom  +   1206d ago
The text on the box seems to say

"Get You!

Saru! Get You! is the Japanese game of Ape Escape.

Combined with the lightning, I think it's PSASBR related.

The relaunch of the new store and/or Cloud gaming for PS1 and 2 games
Tontus  +   1206d ago
Sony Santa Monica owe us a new IP don't they?

And I've heard Stig Asmussen (God of War III director) is still working at the studio but not on God of War: Ascension... So what exactly is he working on? I'd bet on a new IP for the PS4 considering SSM has grown significantly as of late but it could just as well be for the PS3. Hopefully the don't waste their talent on the Vita, I'd rather they solely made home console games.
ginsunuva  +   1206d ago
It's suppsosed to be for the ps store redesign. Don't hype nothing.
Rebo00  +   1206d ago
Sign on the desk 'Saru! Get you!' was the Japanese name for Ape Escape...
Sarobi  +   1206d ago
Speaking outside of the hype and predictions... Sony does a really good job with these type of live action
'teasers'.. the michael ad was very cool and even this short teaser has its own cool vibe... why doesn't Sony put ads like these on TV?

DigitalRaptor  +   1206d ago
This screams PSASBR.

It's based on the woman in the "Michael" trailer, which teased PlayStation characters getting together. I can't see how it's anything else.
BitbyDeath  +   1206d ago
I'm pretty sure it's going to be a new character announcement for Playstation All Stars.

We already have Spike and Cole in it though so i'd imagine the hint has to be either the gun cleaning or the title 'reload'.

Would be cool if it was 'Revolver Ocelot'. "RELOAD!"

jtsventor  +   1206d ago
The part that's throwing me off is the gun.
madpuppy  +   1206d ago
If this is taking place around the same time as the "to Michael" commercial then Cole is already in the club telling his story. this entrance seems a little more sinister, power flickering and going out and flashes of lightening silhouetting a darkened form usually indicate the entrance of a "bad guy" character in stories.

just a little navel gazing.....

Obviously Playstation All Stars. Game is coming out in a few weeks so it would make sense to start advertising it more now. As for Infamous 3.. Isn't that what the VGA 2012 reveals are for ????
chrispseuphoria  +   1206d ago
Is inFAMOUS 3 big enough of a reveal for VGA?
rbailey  +   1206d ago
I wouldn't rule it out completely. And besides what else could get announced for 2013 that we don't know about already? An actual release date for Last Of Us would be awesome if that was to happen, but besides that I wouldn't know of any other PS3 exclusives that could get announced.
Godmars290  +   1206d ago
Feels like someone almost had the same idea I had, that this was going to be a replay of the Micheal commercial, only its been turned into limited and unimaginative speculation.

Its freakin October. Halloween. Its going to be a villains/game bosses version of the Micheal commercial. I'd bet money on it.
rbailey  +   1206d ago
Thats actually a great theory and if the electrical spark means anything, then maybe it could be version of Evil Cole. Either way, I doubt it's anything to get hyped up over. All Stars is on the way and it will be available to all non playstation plus members on the same day.
Ezetta  +   1206d ago
Can't be Evil Cole, the lighting is blue :(
I_am_Batman  +   1206d ago
Just listen to the music this has definately something to do with Infamous.
Saturne3  +   1206d ago
Infamous 3 would nice to see after all almost every big series needs at least a trilogy.

Hoping for more big badder bosses.

I think Sucker Punch is already working on a next gen game so it doesn't seem that there is going to be an inFamous 3 anytime soon.
