the last guardian or the getaway 3 or uncharted 4 ?
SillyYou  +   841d ago
I dont think it's Uncharted 4, too important to not show it on Gamescom.

Keep Calm.

The last time we got a new Ratchet and Clank game.

So don't over hype please.

Btw tomorrow is today right ?

I can see the next Naughty game be it Uncharted 4 or a new IP be shown at the VGA's...

The Last guardian at TGS is my bet.

GG's new IP probably after Killzone gets more of the limelight.

SSM's new IP could be the game?

Media Molecules new IP? With LBP3 being shown by Sumo digital I think MM's new IP could be getting a more in depth look.

A new MediEvil would be most welcome...

The return of Oddworld would also be special.

Or the return of Crash bandicoot?

Well, any of the above would be frosting for me...

Well if you expect a new God of War for the Ps4.

A R"n"C for the Ps3 isn't exactly what you expect. If you understand what I mean.

@pedrof93: what's wrong with Ratchet and Clank? Not because you don't like it that others don't!
i'll be so happy for a PS4 episode of Ratchet & Clank, i love this series as much as any Sony's big series..

I'll stick to my computer today, i hope some great news.. Vita price cut since Gamescom will be PS4 focused? And reveal of PS4/Vita bundle? One can dream but whatever announcement it will be great for gamers.

Naughty Dog games have a tendency to be revealed at the VGAs. I don't see that changing.

Cory Barlog is rumored to be working on Mad Max so that's probably what it is.

Wow Sony keep on giving. A new Getaway game would be cool but anything from Naughty Dog is bound to be incredible.

Saying that, they should save their announcement for Gamescom. I love it when you have a combo of amazing announcements back to back leaving your mind=blown.
Thehyph  +   841d ago
History may not be on our side in regards to Naughty Dog and Gamescom, but it may very well happen. Any and all big guns will be pulled out before the consoles launch. The Uncharted 3 team is still hiding in the woodwork.

They better not reveal a game that they can just reveal at Games Con. I hate when Sony shows their hand early when they could have just announced the game at a major event which will make the event even better.
DeadlyFire  +   841d ago
They said Crazy you guys. What could be a crazy jaw dropping wow type of thing to do right before the 2013 holiday season?

PSVita Free with first 100000 PS4 purchases.

GTA V at PS4 launch < that I am doubtful, but hey it could happen. PS3 seems to be the lead development platform unless it was ported to PS3 with help from Sony from the PS4 development kits to the PS3.

Uncharted 4 as PS4 launch title November 2013. :O

PS4 Launches very, very soon. Madness awaits! :)

You people are insane if you think Sony has a massive AAA launch title in development and they're waiting 2-3 months before the console releases to even announce it.

Keep your hype in check. Gamescom is in less than two weeks. That's where the announcements will be, including the release date.

Okay I was wrong. It was just Cory Barlog promoting Cory Barlog coming back to Sony Santa Monica.

They have only shown 5 out of there 20 exclusives that launch in the first year. Forsure they have enough to do stuff like this still. Maybe they are planning on doing a trailer and then at Gamescom they will show gameplay.

Well since 12 of them are New IPs. That leaves 3-6 returning franchises, and lots of unknowns. :)

Has the blog ever been the choice method of press release for Sony? The blog quite often features third party dev interviews and indie coverage. I doubt it'll be anything major.

They did say crazy though so it could be something worthwhile from a third party. Possibly PS+ related third party deal.

Because atlus is one of the best publishers around they always localize they're games to NA Persona for example, SHin megami tensei if not always there is 90% chance that the game will make it to NA just like @minato wrote
majiebeast  +   841d ago
Custard Trout Cory Balrog was the director of Godofwar 2 calling him a writer is an insult.

He left Sony to join Avalanche on Mad Max then left there to go work for Crystal Dynamics and apparently he has left them aswell he could be back at Santa Monica Studios.

Getaway reboot please please
Eight days done by ND?

Yakuza 5 and yakuza 1-2 HD collection

They bought Atlus

Shenmue 1-2 HD collection?

Most of those announcements like the Atlus acquisition, Shenmue and TLG would make more sense and have a far greater impact at TGS.

New MediEvil actually popped in my head earlier, especially after what Mark Cerny said about the PS4 going back to what made people love Playstation in the first place. My bet would go towards a new SMS game though, which would still be awesome, but Crash Bandicoot being bought back or new MediEvil would get me more excited. Or even....Ape Escape? It's been too long

I'm not going to lie I would prefer at least one God of War game for the PS4 even if it's based on a new character like maybe Kratos had a secret son like a love child and it takes placed years later after GOW3? at least it would be our version of Ryse. you know the superior version...

PSVita  +   841d ago
It really wouldn't be GOW without kratos.
johny5  +   841d ago
not exactly... The mythos can continue with a child from him who is even more powerful it would certainly add a more human element to the series by passing the torch from father to son.

The problem with story telling in games is that they usually stick with the main characters for many sequels without trying something new! "see MGS Series" and no offence I love MGS!

if he died in GOW3 as was implied then why not continue the story from a child of his blood line who has to deal with other demi gods like himself since Kratos had killed all pure "greek gods" and find out more about his father along the way. I mean Kratos really screwed around with many women "most prostitutes" who's to say he doesn't have a few children? maybe even one from a god "Aphrodite anyone?" That means he would have a child that is like 80% god how F'n cool is that!

I think what would be very cool is if a child from him started a new era of gods at the end of that game by reproducing with the last demi god and going from Greek mythology to more Roman as all his offspring would have roman names so the series would be more loosely based on Roman mythology plus it would be a good twist on our reality for the reason many gods can be traced back to Greek mythology too!

@johny5<<<<love that movie btw

Or: I had already considered all that and Sonys has rebooted KZ and Infamous with new characters but I just can't see a GOW without kratos...if they did go with his kid though I'd have to be Aphrodites' because if it was just a human the kid would only be 1/4 god. I'm not saying I wouldn't want or like a game without him But i hope it has an equally epic story.
