We'll most likely hear about it in it's homeland TGS.

Hopefully a Playable Demo at Tokyo Games Show

This happens every year. Gamescom and TGS come up and Journalist start writing about it and pre-hype it and give us a false sense of hope.

But instead its wishful thinking, and we end up upset and disappointed.

They are experiencing "Engineering problems" with the game. Coding issues, getting their engine to cooperate in the PS3 development environment, it's complicated stuff, so much so that the dev team can't figure it out.

They really need to give up and go to PS4, which has a much more dev friendly environment to code in. It's going to be a tough decision but it's the right one.

Yeah I'm hoping we hear something at gamescom, but I doubt we'll hear anything until TGS. I don't know if anyone remembers but Shadow of the Colossus was released just before the current gen hit, so I see this going 1 of 3 ways;

1) It's been pushed back for a nex-gen launch, and we'll see it at TGS if not gamescom

2) It's being kept on ps3 and will be released after ps4 launch to help boost ps3 sales (since sony like to support older consoles as long as they can)

ooor 3) we won't hear anythign again, and we'll default to thinking "Maybe next years TGS" again.

I know the game has had a lot of difficulty on the development side, and my theory is that perhaps everything they wanted to do was too ambitious for current tech and rather than cut content or figure work arounds to get it running on ps3, they started developing it for nex gen instead.

It would make perfect sense why we havent been given any new screens or trailers, and the game did go silent around the time Mark Cerny claims to have been talking ideas for nex-gen with devs around the world. Which was also around the same time FFXIIIVersus went silent, and lo and behold that jumped to nex gen :)

Was definitely one of my most anticipated games for this gen, would be great to get it early nex gen.

*edit* Wow, he does say gen alot (someones will get that...)

One can dream!

Apparently someones dream was to disagree with something you can't really disagree with... and you made that dream come true. I'll buy you a pint for being a hero if you ever find yourself in my neck of the woods dbjj12088, the dreamweaver as you will forever be known as.

I *hope* so but don't expect so. :(
starchild  +   537d ago
Jeez I hope so. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are two of my favorite games of all time. I need The Last Guardian.

where's the ice cream?

i have high hopes for this, it's still one of my most anticipated games, but after Ueda left, i'm really worried about the development and how the game will turn out, especially now that some western devs working on it

These western devs working on it were Sony Santa Monica devs and were working through the technical aspects that Team Ico were having trouble with, not the artistic aspects.

And Fumito Ueda left Sony Japan but is still working on this on a contract basis, which means it's its full-time project until he finishes it, and then no longer has any commitment to SCE.

It's been forever since that one video leaked.
Wni0  +   538d ago
no one really cares at this point, shadow was awesome, ico was ok. this looked bland to be honest.
scott182  +   538d ago
Bland? It doesn't look like anything, it's a complete mystery, that's why it's so exciting to me. It's a completely different looking game that I would love to see more of.
Williamson  +   538d ago
I think this is now a ps4 title, similar to how versus 13 moved to next gen.
Shadowstar  +   538d ago
I think we can officially call this vaporware for this gen. Which is sad, I think it could have been awesome.

The Last Guardian is a myth and does not exist.
thelaughingwiseman  +   537d ago
The game is sadly already starting to look dated. I don't want touch ups to the game, I want it to look like it took 7 years to make for a reason. I don't want it to look 7 years old
