Might be Zone of the Enders. Or not.
MilkMan  +   475d ago
Hope not.
abzdine  +   475d ago | Well said
for me classic = Legend of Dragoon..
i want a remake or a sequel so bad!
some Syphon Filter would be great as well
Eonjay  +   475d ago
Pa Rapa the Rappa was confirmed a few minutes ago by their own video, so I'm thinking its probably something else like Syphon Filter.
Rockefellow  +   475d ago
Eonjay, where is this video that confirmed a Parappa game? I can't find it anywhere.
shivvy24  +   475d ago
A mission in jak 3 was in space, anyone remember the ending too?

If it was a Legend of Dragoon sequel or even a remake, I would squeal unspeakable things. That is my all-time favorite game. :D
Oner  +   475d ago
List of Space Games I could think of ~

Zone of Enders
Omega Boost
Jak
Einhander
Zeitgeist
Raiden Project
RayStorm
Nova Storm
R-Type
Jumping Flash
Space Hulk
Blasto
Wing Commander
Colony Wars
Rogue Galaxy
Galerians
Phantasy Star
Space Station Silicon Valley (oddly enough made by Rockstar North)
Legend of Dragoon
Xenosaga
Something Star Wars/Trek?

Long Shot (not PS1 based) ~ Gears of War being the "epic" announcement

What wrong with ZOE? I thought it was great for its day.

Colony Wars?

I wanna see

Omega boost
Bloody Roar
Ehrgeiz
Onimusha remake

Maybe that's what those Naughty Dog tweets and things are about. Maybe it's Jak in space. I know it's highly unlikely because of Activision, but if Sony could get Crash back... Wow.
mabreu  +   475d ago
If the setting is in space, it could be either one of these:

TimeSplitters (already in development)

Zone of the Enders (Kojimas tweet that something will 'blow our minds')

Jak & Daxter (Naughty Dog visiting SpaceX)

@scott182

Oh, I concur. Would love to see Syphon Filter in next gen glory.
Yi-Long  +   475d ago
Could be Shenmue.

Would also love a return of Turrican.
JoySticksFTW  +   475d ago
Blasto is a good guess.

I'd want ZoE.

My longshot is Jumping Flash for Sony's VR headset complete with motion sickness.
AgitatedOcelot  +   475d ago
Oh man, if it was proper Phantasy Star jrpgs I would be so excited.

Damn I would be excited if they did a mondern reboot of Phantasy Star 4.
solidjun5  +   475d ago
Final Fantasy 7?

Okay...i'm being too optimistic. Sorry.

Since Kojima will be there, i'm thinking a new ZOE or the proper remake of Metal Gear Solid.
HammadTheBeast  +   475d ago
How is Legend of Dragoon space-like? Other than some of the moon stuff...
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   475d ago
About the Kojima announcement, he said it was MGSV-related so unless you pilot Jehuty in MGSV I don't think it has anything to do with Zone of the Enders.

Plus, Kojima is producer, not director of ZoE so it's not really his baby either.
GuruStarr78  +   475d ago
I doubt it will be a platformer like Crash or Jak, since they're still trying to sell us on Knack... But I could see Syphon Filter.
vigilante_man  +   475d ago
We will all find out soon enough.

Good luck to those getting their hands on next gen greatness in a few hours.

I guess living in the USA does have some advantages....
mikeslemonade  +   475d ago
I would think it's something 1st party. My best guess would be a Jak game in space.
Dasteru  +   475d ago
@abzdine:

A prequel during the dragon campaign with Rose, Zieg, Belzac, Shirley, Kanzas, Syuveil & Damia.
Consoldtobots  +   475d ago
hey now, I played and enjoyed Colony Wars on PS1. Those were the days before MS and their $$$ where you could just enjoy the games.
Anarki  +   475d ago
I just watched a video posted by Playstation on youtube, where jack talks about the PS4 and it had Nariko in the Montage for PS4 games. Thus means a Heavenly Sword game is on its way
thorstein  +   474d ago
LittleBigPlanet 3?
bigboirock  +   474d ago
Please be suikoden or legend of the dragoon or a new Final Fantasy tactics sequel to the ps1 game
Freak of Nature  +   474d ago
Crash,Jak or legend of dragoon please....
pyramidshead  +   475d ago
I'm hoping the Kojima announcement is ZoE3.
abzdine  +   475d ago
Kojima has no announcement. he say there will be a PS4 big announcement tonight he didnt say it was coming from him.
pyramidshead  +   475d ago
@above, ah, bummer :(

Will still #believe
warczar  +   475d ago
@abzdine

Kojima is no longer synonymous with Sony, what would he know about games that aren't coming from Konomi? BTW I'm not trying to attack you or anything I just don't understand how Kojima would know anything about another studio's game.
abzdine  +   475d ago
@warczar:
fair enough but Kojima has never been snonymous with Sony. He released his games on Sony consoles first but all his games can be found on other platforms today, even 3DS!!!

He is still very respected personality and has lots of friends at Sony (he visited Naughty Dog many times, no doubt someone shared things with him.
even the Spike TV guy knows about the secrets that will be revealed.
Cuzzo63  +   475d ago
@abzine
I thought Metal Gear first appeared on the NES
Omegabalmung  +   475d ago
@Cuzzo63

Actually it was the MSX that Metal Gear first appeared on.
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   475d ago
Yep. Metal Gear was on MSX first and the many sequels, remakes or ports were on Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft consoles.

It was strongly associated with Sony for good reasons though. MGS1, 2 and 3 came out on PS consoles first. MGS4 is still PS3-exclusive (though I'm sure that'll change soon.) Peace Walker was also a PS exclusive until the HD collection came out.

But then, the MGS4 sales were unimpressive considering development costs so I believe that's when he decided to go multiplatform.
Unreal01  +   475d ago | Well said
Crash Bandicoot. You heard it here first.
CocoWolfie  +   475d ago
OMG WHA T I DIDNT EVEN THINK >_<
HammerKong  +   475d ago
yeah it is having most probablity,may be we can get story mode in it.
CandyFace  +   475d ago
Announcing a new Crash bandicoot game would be the reason why i would buy a ps4.
I_am_Batman  +   475d ago
Isn't Crash Bandicoot owned by Activision?
Aggesan  +   475d ago
@I_am_Batman Yupp, they could've bought the IP though.
astralproxy  +   475d ago
This was my first idea. I would LOVE it.
KwietStorm  +   475d ago
If that's the announcement, then I really hope they have more.
Freak of Nature  +   474d ago
I am your 48th agree with 0 disagrees, hope you are right....... Sure hope this or jak or Legend of dragoon is the game...
Inception  +   475d ago
The rumour so far are:

- Parappa
- Legend of Dragoon
- Shenmue
- ZoE

Let's see what Sony have up on their sleeve
Mystogan  +   475d ago
Shenmue and Parappa are not set in space. And why would Sony be interested in shenmue? It was only on Xbox and Dreamcast.

it's either Zone of the Enders which is most likely because Kojima reacted to this rumor. Or if not its Legend of Dragoon.
Kujii  +   474d ago
They are bringing back Demo Discs!

Exciting times people!
GraveLord  +   475d ago
That wouldn't be a "big" game....its not a classic franchise either.

So I'm guessing Crash Bandicoot in space?
mafiahajeri  +   475d ago
Cortex likes space and time travel doesn't he? Could be crash!
I_am_Batman  +   475d ago
System Shock 3. mind = blown

How about Policenauts?.
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   475d ago
Would be awesome but no. It never came out in the US so they're assuming no one here knows about it and so is not a classic in that sense.

I love that game, don't take me wrong.
boneso82  +   475d ago
Resistance 4?

I'd buy that
cpayne93  +   475d ago
When they say classic franchise I would imagine something older than last gen.
slimeybrainboy  +   475d ago
It's definitely ZOE I'm calling it now. Also VR headset, NG DLC, and R* announcement, & Ubisoft

Bet this will be 5/5
Skizelli  +   475d ago
I know it was supposed to be a PS3 game, but could it be The Last Guardian? Space is a vague term and is synonymous with time, and it's technically a classic franchise (Ico, Shadow of the Colossus).

hazeblaze  +   475d ago
Zone of the Enders would be great but that is not a Sony licensed game is it?

Sony Santa Monica hired the lead writer for Battlestar Galactica last year... But I have no idea what classic franchise they would take to space!
Cuzzo63  +   475d ago
Zone of Enders. Colony Wars. Star Ocean... Could be anything.
If its coming from Kojima. Then ZoE. I want a Colony Wars tho. I dnt think Star Ocean was exclusive and I think Square has right to that game, or was it

Come on people! It says in space!

COLONY WARS!!!!!!

*prays
jmac53  +   475d ago
It's about time a console got a great space sim. I really am hoping it's colony wars. They could do some amazing things with the PS4. It would be awesome if it was something along the lines of battlestar galactica where you had a base ship.

v6volume  +   475d ago
Long shot might be Metal Gear Solid. Kojima talked about doing a game based on The Boss. She was the first person in space. Like I said, it's a real long shot
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   475d ago
I don't think it's another Metal Gear game. Kojima will want to build more MGSV hype before announcing another one.

COLONY WARS!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE!!!

That would be amazing! I miss Colony Wars. But, I don't think Psygnosis exists anymore.
mixelon  +   475d ago
They got bought by sony ages ago and became Sony Liverpool - some of the staff still work at sony. They carried on working on the Wipeout games, and now i guess they're merged with Evolution working on Driveclub? not sure.

It started ok and had great shooting mechanics, weapons felt great and aimig was so accurrate, MP had some great ideas in it

I felt FR got the budget cutted due they were on the way out as a studio, the game turned in a mixed quality product and far from all expectations...their shooting Engine was nice, though like said

He kinda cancelled it though too, sorta...like 99% cancelled it.

Last I heard in his latest interview(May I think) that he disbanded the group working on it but then gave an open question to fans to tell him if they really wanted a next gen ZoE game...

Nothing else has been said so I hope he changes his mind :(.

Ps5 era. Sony is using the power of the Playstation 6 to bring us a Jak HD collection ll from the future. Featuring Jak 4 - 6.

just wishful thinking from a hardcore Jak & Daxter fan :,(

Starhawk?
Rogue Galaxy?
