hyped. not next consoles considering it's already been in development for a bit, and should probably be released in 2014.
showtimefolks  +   598d ago
i think for next 2 years all next gen games will also get a release on ps3,xbox360. both systems are still selling well and have huge install bases so it makes sense to port those next gen titles and make easy money

also the graphics difference between a ps4 title to a ps3 port won't be as big as ps2-ps3

There will be more next gen exclusive games than you think. Most multigen games will be sports games.

You need to play less games & read a whole lot more.
iamnsuperman  +   598d ago
Just look at it logically. Okay Egyptians tend not to be fully black and more middle eastern looking (@pr0t0typeknuckles you are thinking of modern day Egypt which is to do with what I am about to mention and immigration over thousands of years). But thinking of the time period wars happened and people stolen other people for slavery. Since Africa is a massive landmass this type of thing wasn't uncommon. You would start getting black people in the population. Also people would flock to big cities for a chance at fortune. He may not be Egyptian

Read a history book sometime. It seriously shouldn't be possible for one to be so stupid.

Do humanity a favor, don't procreate, please. I beg you, do not add more stupid to the gene-pool.

Google Nubian, ass.

The main character should be black if he is Osiris. Osiris was sometimes referred to as the black god. You are correct about the native north Africans being much lighter than Africans south of the sahara, but it wouldn't be unusual for darker Africans to have immigrated to Egypt.
pixelsword  +   597d ago
@ Classic:

Your statement is just about as stupid as if some guy whining about why aren't Native Americans in a game Blonde-Haired and Blue-eyed: You're basing your false assumption of history upon the current population.

Egyptians were always dark skinned; lighter skinned people immigrated to Egypt throughout the centuries, not the other way around. Your people aren't even as dark as the Egyptians in the ancient drawings, and they had rainforests to help shield them from the sun: you got nothing now but sand and sun, and your people aren't even as dark as the drawings...!

What you need to do is look up Ivan Van Sertima and Alexander Von Wuthenau, after that, attempt to digest just about everything they have on video, PDF, and book because you're looking every bit the uneducated person that I'm afraid you really are.

Your people are the actual invaders, The walls, statues, and all ancient history books make reference to Kemet as being black in reference of the origin of the people; the name Kemet means the black lands, The Bible verifies Egyptian lineage to Kem (Mizraim via Kem/Ham), and Roman, Greek, Arab, and other scholars wrote that Egyptians were Black-skinned.

Heck, the reason the Greeks called Kemet Egypt because Egypt means "The place of the soul" (Hi-Gi-Ptos) because back then some peoples in the areas surrounding Egypt thought the soul was black.

Just like North African used to be primarily Black-skinned Christians until Islamic raiders slaughtered the people and took over the cities: if you don't know what I'm talking about, look up the history of the city of Fez, and why the hat called the "Fez" is red.

That's the sad part of History: it's written by not only the victor, but the bigot and the ignoramus.

Dang, good job Classic200 for being completely ignorant. Ancient Egypt, that of the ruling dynastic part, was pretty much a crossroads of the world back then, so therefore had many various skin colors (bablylonians, libyans, nubians, asiatics....etc). There is a debate about this very thing with a whole gamut of theories. Many other societies like the Nubians and Western African empires were black. Whereas the Eastern and Nile Valley africans were more of a brownish skin color.

Just kill yourself, please... At least investigate some more before posting this... comment.

@pixelsword
This is some nice piece of information you've brougth. Worth reading to expand your knowledge.

pr0t0typeknuckles  +   598d ago
at least its not prince of persia, but instead its a new ip, i may check it out egypt is a very intersting setting for videogames, and hasnt used to death like WW2, modern war, or ancient greece.

not bad

Osiris (was an Egyptian god, usually identified as the god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead) - From the Makers of Assassin Creed.

Interesting.
iamnsuperman  +   598d ago
I agree it is interesting but I do hope they sort out their stories. AC was great but it had a rich history to go off and it came off like a B-movie standard plot. I hope they have learnt from this and still keeps things magical/mystical without going into the standard of "OMG aliens trying to take over the world"
-Gespenst-  +   597d ago
Yeah, there's something really naff about the first civilization. They look like something out of cheesy 80's sci-fi. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but in the context of the game it's a bit weird.
Soldierone  +   598d ago
Didn't the makers of Assassins Creed go to THQ?

LOL WHAT THE HELL

Soldierone  +   598d ago
I wasn't wrong, the creator was with THQ.

(Tried to link it but it won't let me.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   598d ago
It says the TEAM that brought you assassins creed the only people who left Ubi for THQ was patrice and a few art directors

Also

-the video is 5 months old and was for a composers resume

-Patrice was working on a very different game for THQ

- A screen shot for this leaked from ubisoft after patrice left in 2010, it should have been from THQ if that was the case
Nimblest-Assassin  +   598d ago
Where have you been?

Ubi bought THQ montreal... dudes back where he began
Soldierone  +   598d ago
Lol its funny how you guys think I'm stupid.

All I'm saying is how is it a "secret" Ubisoft game from the creator of Assassins Creed, when the person has been at THQ. It would have been an secret at THQ that Ubisoft bought....

Really didn't think I had to fully explain that, but looking at the disagree's.... yeah. I'll remember to be VERY SPECIFIC next time lol
PhantomT1412  +   598d ago
The images of this project were leaked (as a Ubisoft project) way before THQ was bought by Ubi.

Patrice Desilets and THQ Montréal were working on another -unannounced- project called "1667" (the number might be wrong).

UnholyLight  +   598d ago
Yeah the guy that came up with the Original AC and ACII I think. Patrice Desilet or however you spell it. His studio is called 1666 Studios or somethin rather. They got bought back. I think people (including myself initially) thought you meant that the Ubi team itself went to THQ lol. THQ should have been a promising place and the AC creator did go there back when THQ was in a good place..Circa 2007-2008? So no, you're not stupid, it just sounded stupid rightaways because THQ just went under.
DeltaCanuckian  +   598d ago
One of the producers went, this is something Ubisoft Montreal has been working on without him. Though Ubisoft bought THQ Montreal, so he's back with them now.
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   598d ago
I like AC but if I have to climb buildings and run and hide from the enemies I'm not looking forward to playing this game.
Conzul  +   598d ago
Osiris is the god of the dead. I don't see him doing much running, somehow.
Rockefellow  +   598d ago
I remember screen shots that looked exactly like this leaking a while back. Kotaku made a big stink about it being "The Next Prince of Persia"

Glad they're wrong!

Music can make anything feel epic. I can't wait to play the game even though all I saw was an old man pounding the floor and then dragging some younger man back into his man cave/old age home.

I an Top Secret UbiVault that is not connected to the Net xD
KnightRobby  +   598d ago
My guess? This is an Assassin's Creed game and will be called Assassin's Creed: Osiris. Seems like it'll be about the First Civilization or at least connected to them, as Osiris is actually explained on the AC Wiki: "Osiris was a member of the First Civilization, revered as an Egyptian god of the afterlife, the underworld and death. He was also the partner of Isis."

This is that thing that people thought was a Prince of Persia game... Hmmm, I wonder if it'll have a sci-fi spin like AC, or if it's just a period based game...
BlackWolf  +   597d ago
It's been a long time since I've seen a game that heavily uses elements of Egyptian culture. It has really got my interest.
