amazing dev team they are and i cant wait to see whatever they are working on especially a new motorstorm title. there have never been a game up to the standards of the motorstorm games within the offroad genre.

i cant wait to buy whatever sony first party devs are selling on ps4 because they only make quality games

I couldn't agree more with you. I'm so exited to see what this and all the other news is on Feb 20th!!
Kevin ButIer  +   803d ago
oh man feb 20 is going to be huge... I’m starting to wonder how the E3 is going to work after this move...
NewMonday  +   803d ago
this means the other rumored reveal of a GG FPS game is also true.
BitbyDeath  +   803d ago
New Motorstorm for PS4 would be better than a new IP.
DOMination-  +   803d ago
Not for me. I hate MS. Its too arcadey and lacks any kind of depth. I know many people enjoy that but i played all three and by the third race in each i was bored.

They are good devs though. Would like to see them try something a bit more... substantiated.
BitbyDeath  +   803d ago
@DOMination, was that just the demos you played cause neither of the MS games had very good demos

The full game has a lot more depth to it.
DOMination-  +   803d ago
Nah mate, I owned Motorstorm as I got with Resistance on launch day like everyone else!

I played the other two on my lunch breaks at work when I worked for Game. They pretty much followed the same formula to me.

Which was, be presented with a race.. do the race. If you win, you do another race. If you lose, do the race again until you win. For me personally I don't like that formula. I like there to be a bit more to do in between. I guess that's why I was such a huge fan of Test Drive Unlimited (the first one) and Forza Horizon.

Motorstorm does that arcadey thing quite well but I think video games have moved on a bit and that series felt like it belonged to a previous era. Ironic considering the name of the developer! I just want a bit more from a racing game.
ChronoJoe  +   802d ago
Motorstorm actually has an absurd amount of depth, considering you only played 3 races in each it's easy to understand why you'd have missed out on that. Whilst it is 'arcadey' it incorporates a lot of realistic factors with varied terrain and the deformation of it.

On motorstorm just driving a couple feet to the left or right can cut seconds off your time. The optimising your racing line in Motorstorm games is extremely technical. Arguably much more so than games like Forza Horizon and Test Drive (the two games you brought up).

That said I'd prefer a new IP to a new Motorstorm. I agree with you that between races it's shallow. It's a shame you can't build your machines akin to Pure (quad bike racing game) or something like that, it'd make the game a lot more fun. The handling model is also a bit too on the realistic side for my taste. I would have preferred faster acceleration and the ability to drift etc.

ok so now we will see:

PS4 reveal
possibly new game from evolution studios, who by the way also hired bunch of devs who previously worked on PGR,Blur among other racing games so this new game could be something quite big


Media Molecule also teasing a new game

could you imagine for just one second sony showing the following 5 games on February and in the end saying see you at E3 because this was only a preview for what to come

Last Guardian
Evolution studio's new game
MM new game
Killzone 4

just show these 5 on February 20th and a lot more at E3,


no way don't expect to see it since beyond 2 souls still doesn't have a release date, sony will not want to over shadow B2S.

Also don't expect to see next Uncharted

one game that we could see is LBP3 world done by a different studio with help of MM.

we maybe see 3-6 games on February with some tech demos

but everything else including pricing and major specs will only be fully revealed at E3

akaakaaka  +   803d ago
Well the day they announce the PS3, they showed many games, few tech demos and specifications of the PS3!

I will guess this time will be no different, but I bet they will hide some technical specifications but show games and how cool the PS4 features are, their apps, Gaika and blah blah..

They will minimum show 15 games even if they are just short clips teasers, we know unreal next gen engine is big for the industry and it will be there.

Go big or go home Sony!

FamilyGuy  +   802d ago
The idea alone that theyre trying and will succeed at something thought to be overly ambitious gets me excited for their new game.

Motorstorm came with my PS3 when I bought it about a year after the PS3s release. It was the first game I got to play in HD with outstanding graphics, it was fun and fast like a Burnout game in the dirt and I loved.

Anything they come up with will be great, MS4 or new IP.

Pacific Rift. Most underrated racing game of the gen in my opinion.

10 days away, same day as the rumoured PS4 reveal. Pretty much confirmed PS4 launch title!

Motorstorm kicked off the PS3 really nicely. I remember how stunning that game looked at that time. Nice to know this company PROBABLY will kick off another launch title with the PS4.
NateCole  +   803d ago
For the European launch yes
Shadow Man  +   803d ago
still looks stunning compared to todays multiplatform racing games.
patriotZero  +   803d ago
Motorstorm CGI now gameplay
It runs 60FPS FULL HD
Motorstorm 4 20 players online
Open world tracks.
PockyKing  +   803d ago
Something like Lego Racers Motorstorm style would be freaking fun.
juandren  +   803d ago
No more Lego games for me. God I hate them
PockyKing  +   803d ago
Oh now I know why I'm getting disagrees, I mean the concept, not an actual Lego game. Like the creation, and very varied maps etc.
Angainor7  +   803d ago
Man can't wait... i hope for the motostorm demo that was in E3 05 to be (real) time this time..
Honestly can't wait to see what are they working on. 10 days to go!!!

This is going to be good.

10 more days - Feb 20, 2013
brave27heart  +   803d ago
Im hoping its not Motorstorm for PS4, but only because I want GT6 as a launch window game and Sony wont release two first party racing games at launch.

Im betting on Motorstorm at launch though.
BitbyDeath  +   803d ago
PS3 launched with Motorstorm and Ridge Racer ;-)
brave27heart  +   803d ago
Fair comment, but Ridge Racer...sorry, RIIIIIIIDDGGEEEE RAAAAACCEEEERRR, isnt a first party title and Sony tends to avoid sending first party titles into release windows at the same time unless they're different genres.
nevin1  +   803d ago
What a about a proper Vita Motorstorm?
remanutd55  +   803d ago
yes!!!!! i hope Evo release a proper Motorstorm game on the vita, 8 players online multiplayer craziness!!!!

Shadow Man  +   803d ago
yes, imagine ocean, desert, water, city, volcano, air, mountain, forest, tropical...
uuaschbaer  +   803d ago
Would be cool if there were 10 launch titles and tomorrow a wholly different developer would tweet "9 days!" etc. I should do marketing.
WeAreLegion  +   803d ago
YES. That would be awesome.
Qrphe  +   803d ago
Wipeout or Motorstorm launch game? As expected! Please let it be WipeOut!!!!
StreetsofRage  +   803d ago
Go back to the original roots of Motorstorm and make it off roading. Even better, make it exactly like that infamous e3 tech demo and you got yourself a major launch title. All I need is this and a new PGR for my Xbox and I'm in arcade racing heaven.
Hufandpuf  +   803d ago
sadly PGR is never coming back. :(
NateCole  +   803d ago
So my guess for launch games

1. LBP4 for casuals
2. KZ4 for FPS fans
3. MS4 for racing fans

Now for RPG i would like VC3 or Legend of Dragoon 2 and my dream launch is complete.
first1NFANTRY  +   803d ago
definitely a ps4 reveal. their probably developing Motorstorm 3 as a launch title just like the first MS on the ps3
Shadow Man  +   803d ago
omg! yes! offtopic question but are motorstorm apocalypse servers still up? can u still play apocalypse online?
WeAreLegion  +   803d ago
Yes, you can. Both Apocalypse and Pacific Rift are still active online communities. Only the first MS is off now. :)
SonyStyled  +   802d ago
you might want to check up on the pacific rift servers being up. i swear i read on here a little less than a year ago the PR servers where coming down. not sure if its been axed yet. as MS:A is a fairly recent title expect the servers to be up for quite a while longer
Vigor  +   803d ago
The only thing I'm asking from this( video below) studio is making this a reality


Full cockpit view, with all that mud and dust in your face

arbitor365  +   803d ago
so, lets go down the list of possible PS4 launch titles

new sucker punch IP
new evolution studios racing game
something from Naughty dog (uncharted 4 or Jak 4)
killzone 4
new media molecule game

this could be the best launch since the SNES, if they do it right.

*rubs hands together*. A PS4 launching with a next gen Motorstorm would sweeten the pot for me.Motorstorm is already the most awesome off road racer I have ever played.Just imagine what kind of tracks they can make with the PS4.Hey, maybe they will take my suggestion and have tracks on other planets besides Earth. Just imagine zipping around on the moon's surface or Mars or Venus in a buggy or Monster truck. Now THAT would be off road.
Sizzon  +   803d ago
Glad to see Evolution Studios still going strong after Motorstorm: Apocalypse wich sadly due to release dates sold poorly compared to Pacific Rift and the Original launch Motorstorm game.

Can't wait to see what it is.
Elite-uk  +   803d ago
let me guess this one features mud as well?!!.... the first game was amazing....the next few not so much!.
0pie  +   803d ago
hahaha the guy really had a halo mask on twitter... Idk but... maaaaaaan, you work for sony...
snookes  +   803d ago

Did you ever try the multiplayer on MotorStorm? The multiplayer on the first 2 MotorStorm's was a blast, though Apocalypse was a bit of a let down in all honesty.

Reading your post it appears that you are talking about the single player part of the game?, which is most definitely the weakest portion of the game, and yes needs to be improved for sure.

I really enjoy the off-road setting of the game and it would be a shame to see it ditched in favor of another street/road racer.
josephayal  +   803d ago
PLAYSTATION 4 CONFIRMED, Ridge Racer/MotorStorm games have always been there on the launch day of a new Sony console
Picnic  +   803d ago
Motorstorm Apocalypse 2 please - or something that's essentially that if you rename it. I know that not all Motorstorm fans like it but it's a much more exciting concept than the first 2 games.
Just perhaps no parts where you can crash due to traffic coming at you from another part of the track. That can seem a little too randomly unavoidable.
