The Last Guardian Headed To Playstation 4

Torrence Davis of STFUandPlay writes, "According to a very reliable source from Japan, Team Ico’s The Last Guardian will now be a Playstation 4 title.

I'd normally be one of the first to call this out, but who am i kidding? I'm caught up in the hype. The team has been working their way through technical issues for years now it seems, so much so that Santa Monica had to come in to assist.

Now that Fumito has come out a few days before PS4's reveal to say it's up to Sony when they announce it, i find it tough to believe that wasn't a sneaky hint.

I can't wait for this to bless the world of gaming, through whichever console they've decided on.

i know quality takes time but...
i had no idea it would skip an entire console generation. None the less, we did get HD Ico and SotC to tide us over till this one is ready.

The more time they take, the more polished the end result will be.

Imagine having this unveiled at E3 looking all spruced up with next gen visuals. Truly a case of mind....blown.

I have a feeling that Sony are going to unleash one of the best launch line ups the industry has ever witnessed. All the chips seem to have fallen in the right places and whilst many disagree, I think VITA integration will play a big part in it. Remember, I said it here first.

I'd say stop getting hyped until some actual reliable information comes out. This is the 5th article stating "LOL LAST GUARDIAN PS4 LOL" and we've still yet to hear anything.

And every single article is "we have a reliable sources, but details are sketchy". Hello!? Does this not scream searching for hits to anybody else? Wait until the devs themselves say something.

Last Guardian is becoming like Agent and FFvs13 to me.....completely off my radar until I get some kind of release date or at the very least a release window

Something tells me Sony's been working deliberately to get this working as a launch title for PlayStation 4. But at the same time, it has been promised a release for the PS3. So a cross-buy for PS3 same the day? Seems highly possible!

PersonMan  +   830d ago
If you just get the game, you're not going to be able to do anything with it unless you have the hardware to play it.
ayabrea93  +   830d ago
that's why I'll buy the hardware lol
Ben Dover  +   830d ago
Then you should clarify your earlier statement and add that you want both the game AND the hardware :D

chadboban  +   830d ago
Once the game is good, I don't care if it's on PS4 or PS3, just as long as it's released.
izumo_lee  +   830d ago
Team Ico did the same with the game Ico which was supposed to be a PSone game. However the PSone wasn't able to run the game properly so it switched over to the PS2.

I can see the same happening with the Last Guardian. All that talk about having technical difficulties in the development process kinda pointed towards the same thing happening again.

It kinda dissappointing to hear this but if new hardware is able to fulfill the vision Fumito Ueda envisioned with this game than it is for the better. I know one thing for certain the game will not dissapoint, cause Team Ico games never do.
brave27heart  +   830d ago
Make it launch window. I dare you. =P
izumo_lee  +   830d ago
I wonder if this rumor has anything to do with that tweet that Ueda-san post last week about 'keep an eye out for an official announcement', & that Sony is to one to make that call.

So it may well be a launch window game!!! If that is the case i will spend whatever the price may be for the PS4. C'mon Sony show us $599 again!!!

if this is true i'll be forced to buy ps4 as it lunches.

And then you'll be forced to PS5 when they delay it further and put it on that instead.

Not so hard to believe. They started it decided early on that the PS4 would suit their needs better.Started to make a PS4 version. Could explain why they are being so dodgy about a release date and keep claiming that it is still in development
bullymangLer  +   830d ago
Good reason to buy a ps4 . . Good reason to call sony pussy-cheaters
Martywren  +   830d ago
Well it do make sense why its been taking long. We will all find out wat Sony have up it sleave feb 20th
Lvl_up_gamer  +   830d ago
I remember Sony fanboys trying to justify their PS3 purchase by using lists of "exclusive" games coming for the PS3 and The Last Guardian always being on the list....and now here we are with rumors that it will be a PS4 release.

LOL. So now it's....just wait till the PS4 releases, it will have The Last Guardian, now that years have past and still no The Last Guardian on the PS3.

Maybe now Sony Fanboys will stop padding game lists with games that don't have release dates.

Better VERY VERY VERY late then never right?

Remember the time when MS fanboys spewed out "The PS3 has no games" or "It'd garbage because the graphics suck"... Ahh i remember those days, and yet Sony released games that catered to any gamers genre of interest, having "games" that have yet to be surpassed in wow factor due to real time game play, better yet only having 3 titles worth talking about compared to the many sony offers...

My, my have the tables have turned greatly...

So because of 1 or 2 games that are stuck in dev hell all the other exclusives like Uncharted, LBP, Ni no Kuni, Infamous, Killzone, etc don't matter? Nobody padded any lists but Xbox fanboys with shit like RYSE and Starwars Kinect or games that came to PC or cheap ARCADE titles.

The worst (funny and sad are also interchangeable here) thing about this is that you actually believe what you're saying.

That a handful of games that haven't made it into stores somehow outweighs all the ones that did.

While some of us were waiting, we got treated to a load of great titles. So while we may not have gotten one or two games we thought we'd get, we got plenty of others we were promised, plus ones we never expected.

I feel sorry for you, so hung up on ONE game. Well, you don't have a PS3 anyway, right? So it's no loss to you, in any case. Guess it's no gain either, though. My condolences.

The rest of us will play all our other great exclusives, and we'll enjoy our wait for The Last Guardian.
Omar91  +   830d ago
I'm fine with that, does this mean ffvs will be on ps4 as well?
wildcat  +   830d ago
But when is the PS4 launching? Hopefully not next year. That would mean another year of waiting if this rumor is true.

I personally think it would be better suited for the PS3, with its established fan base. Plus I don't want to have to shell out money for a launch console. However, I can see how launching with the PS4 would create new buzz and additional interest for this game.
aim4dabushiz  +   830d ago
this will be a launch title, i can feel it! that would set this christmas off RIGHT!
OOG  +   830d ago
I doubt that.... but you never know... it would be awesome!
evilhasitsway  +   830d ago
well its like this if your buying a new gen system for gaming as focus then ps4 will be the way to go but if your buying one for "mulitimedia" as the xbox says is there focus then newbox will be the way to go.

chiwoo  +   830d ago
If this is true Sony should be ashamed cause loyal Ico team fans have been waiting for it on PS3 for a long time
IRetrouk  +   830d ago
But what if the ps3 just wasnt enough for the game? Would you really want a watered down version or something as close to the original vision as possible, im getting a ps4 day one so im not fussed if its on 3 or 4, have waited this whole gen, whats a little more time?
DigitalAnalog  +   830d ago
But what if it wasn't simply a matter of the console? Suppose that the game itself has design issues? Remember, they have to design the Ai to intelligently determine itself around the environment without causing some dissonance to the main player. This is not solvable by mere "power" alone.

The problem with your statement is that you focus to much of what the mainstream games are promoting: More graphics and more SET-PIECES. These are things FAR from Team ICO's ambition. ICO was deliberately sub-hd even by PS2 standards. SoTC was designed on the PS2 even though it would've made sense to put that on the PS3 considering it implemented motion-blur and dynamic range lighting (tech that the PS2 hardware DOES NOT SUPPORT).

Problem is that his team is too small with an extremely ambitious title. Games like Bioshock take over 5 years and it comes with a full packed 200+ developers. With that mindeset, why not have Bioshock just wait till the next-gen consoles so they don't have that kind of development time optimizing for the consoles?

You know i didnt mention graphics right? I was thinking more along the lines of more would be better for everything, A.I being one of them along with better physics, animation, collision detection, drawdistances, better textures along with better framerates and just a generaly more stable game.
