Back in 2005, Sony took to the E3 stage to announce the PlayStation 3 in an explosive show. Between all the huge prices, pre-rendered CGI trailers, Ridge Racers and PS3 exclusives, Ubisoft's Killing Day was revealed.
Interesting.... Very interesting.
Too bad we would never know what it'll TRULY look like on PS360. But rather on new consoles instead. Game still looks surprisingly impressive for a 7 in a half year old tech demo. EDIT: One more thing, its funny how the video isn't streamed in HD but in SD. Ahh we came so far from 2005.
It's cgi. Almost all games shown from sony in 2005 were cgi. I'm not using this as a bases, but it does infact look cgi as well, there is nothing that looks realtime about it.
Killing Day and especialy Killzone 2 2005 E3 Tech demo that sony showcased was probaly the stupidest, saddest and dissapointing moment in hisory of E3.
Killing day looked like a revolutionary shooter and Killzone just looked beyond what everyother game was capable of...we all knew how that turned out. Good if u compare it to other shooters but to the original E3 pre render..haha no chance. I hope the $ony clowns never show a Pre rendered CGI ever again.
I hope we get graphics like that though...man that would be a milestone.
well Ubi use all that tech and assets to make CALL OF JUAREZ so you got a idea on it already.. and to those who say sony lie, go back and look at the tech demos from 2005 e3 and you can see that most today games seem or just better and they reach their goal, they look outdated..
the guy kind of looks like Majima from Yakuza
Solid_warlord is right. My friend and I were GOING NUTS when we saw the 2005 demo for Killzone and couldn't believe how amazing it looked. That sure didn't happen. I agree that that was a huge mistake, the other tech demo I remember was the one with like elephants and stuff (it looked like an African safari or something). Those animals looked real as well, and well PS3 was nowhere near that in reality.
Hey, remember EyeDentify? That game never came out. http://www.youtube.com/watc... And not to forget about wardevil https://www.youtube.com/wat... And Coded arms Assault https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I remember watching and listening for details on Wardevil for so long after announced ;(
Looked at the video last week to see if the cgi video would hold up to the games released now. I can easily say that the games released right now are soo much better looking then what was promised at e3 2005/2006
Next gen launch title?
Possible. Maybe they were into development, and found out the processors in current gen systems couldn't handle the destructive environments and visuals the developers wanted, and put it on the back burner. Maybe they have the game design, and are making new assets for it. Hard to say, just speculation... maybe they just wanted rights to the name for another project.
Next up: The Getaway and Eight Days!
Oh yes please
the getaway was a quality title.
don't forget project offset! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Blame Intel for that one buddy. Fractiv(The original developer's new studio) couldn't get Intel to give them the rights yet. Someone needs to attack Intel so that they let those rights go to the proper developer.
Don't forget about Agent!
I want Agent to exist, so badly.
I have never heard of this game.
Man I can remember this being one of my most anticipated next gen games when the PS3 was announced! I was gutted when Ubisoft cancelled it :(.
i want them to bring back Eyedentify! With the release of psmove this game could be even more interactive than originally invisioned! XDDDDDD
Jup, I remember that game. Looked totally different than any FPS COD crap out there. Darkness come close to that kind of weapon handling, still hoping for a game like Killing Day.
There was an FPS on PC during the nineties that had a similar approach to this. You could see your character's body as you looked down (revolutionary for its time) and your whole arm out stretched only when aiming weapons, otherwise it was by your side. It also had a different approach to movement for a standard FPS game. Your head turned before your body did for example. In a way Mirror's Edge perfected the idea. Sadly the name of the game escapes me. All I know is Kieron Gillen reviewed it for PC Gamer and Killing Day reminds me of it.
Something tells me that years from now we may be saying the same thing about The last Guardian. Also if this Killing Day game ever comes to fruition, it won't see the light of day with that name. With all the gun violence in the US right now, this game will get hammered by critics.
This game looked pretty cool, so I think this is good news. Maybe Eight Days and The Getaway will come back next gen as well?
Question is, will Ubisoft continue the exclusive deal or make it multiplatform?
It was never actually exclusive
Next we'll hear that Sega is about to release Fifth Phantom Saga.
What i am gonna say is true Last month i ve contacted the responsible for the ubisoft trademarks, asked him if ubisoft was interested in selling the trademark rights, he said yes and the trademark was alive in europe, it was abandoned in usa since 2010/2011, they wanted a offer, since i didn´t know which value was for an almost abandoned trademark, i've offered 2k dollars, they rejected it was far away from they wanted, i've asked how much ubisoft wanted, i didn´t get a reply, the last e-mail I receive was the rejected proposal in january 5th I knew it wasn´t a smart move, I didn´t have an ideia of the trademark value, also am just a newbie modeller, but fell in love with this game, i was thinking about a black comedy FPS.
my bad it looks like it was abandoned last year
They gonna use the new KD CGI to introduce new consoles as well?
And then the PS5 after that. It'll be a special tradition.
That trailer was terrible.
Yay more guns and shooting people, we always need more of that!
God Of War 3 I didn't know I was playing. I thought It was a movie with CGI.
