Nyxus1159d ago

Might be Zone of the Enders. Or not.

abzdine1159d ago

for me classic = Legend of Dragoon..
i want a remake or a sequel so bad!
some Syphon Filter would be great as well

Eonjay1159d 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.

Rockefellow1159d ago

Eonjay, where is this video that confirmed a Parappa game? I can't find it anywhere.

shivvy241159d ago

A mission in jak 3 was in space, anyone remember the ending too?

scott1821159d ago

Syphon Filter would be coo

Eonjay1159d ago

@Rockefellow

Om3ga3701159d ago

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

Oner1159d ago (Edited 1159d 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

NikonSteve1159d ago

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

CRMzova1159d ago

I wanna see

Omega boost
Bloody Roar
Ehrgeiz
Onimusha remake

Nick_5151159d ago

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.

mabreu1159d ago (Edited 1159d 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)

boing11159d ago

@scott182

Oh, I concur. Would love to see Syphon Filter in next gen glory.

Yi-Long1159d ago

Could be Shenmue.

Would also love a return of Turrican.

JoySticksFTW1159d ago

Blasto is a good guess.

I'd want ZoE.

My longshot is Jumping Flash for Sony's VR headset complete with motion sickness.

AgitatedOcelot1159d 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.

solidjun51159d 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.

HammadTheBeast1159d ago

How is Legend of Dragoon space-like? Other than some of the moon stuff...

One_Eyed_Wizard1159d 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.

GuruStarr781159d 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_man1159d 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....

mikeslemonade1159d ago

I would think it's something 1st party. My best guess would be a Jak game in space.

Dasteru1159d ago

@abzdine:

A prequel during the dragon campaign with Rose, Zieg, Belzac, Shirley, Kanzas, Syuveil & Damia.

Consoldtobots1159d 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.

Anarki1159d 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

bigboirock1159d ago

Please be suikoden or legend of the dragoon or a new Final Fantasy tactics sequel to the ps1 game

Freak of Nature1159d ago

Crash,Jak or legend of dragoon please....

I'm hoping the Kojima announcement is ZoE3.

abzdine1159d ago

Kojima has no announcement. he say there will be a PS4 big announcement tonight he didnt say it was coming from him.

pyramidshead1159d ago

@above, ah, bummer :(

Will still #believe

warczar1159d 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.

abzdine1159d 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.

Cuzzo631159d ago

@abzine
I thought Metal Gear first appeared on the NES

Omegabalmung1159d ago

@Cuzzo63

Actually it was the MSX that Metal Gear first appeared on.

One_Eyed_Wizard1159d 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.

Unreal011159d ago

Crash Bandicoot. You heard it here first.

CocoWolfie1159d ago

OMG WHA T I DIDNT EVEN THINK >_<

HammerKong1159d ago

yeah it is having most probablity,may be we can get story mode in it.

CandyFace1159d ago

Announcing a new Crash bandicoot game would be the reason why i would buy a ps4.

I_am_Batman1159d ago

Isn't Crash Bandicoot owned by Activision?

Aggesan1159d ago

@I_am_Batman Yupp, they could've bought the IP though.

astralproxy1159d ago

This was my first idea. I would LOVE it.

KwietStorm1159d ago

If that's the announcement, then I really hope they have more.

Freak of Nature1159d 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...

Inception1159d ago

The rumour so far are:

- Parappa
- Legend of Dragoon
- Shenmue
- ZoE

Let's see what Sony have up on their sleeve

Mystogan1159d 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.

Kujii1159d ago

They are bringing back Demo Discs!

Exciting times people!

GraveLord1159d ago

That wouldn't be a "big" game....its not a classic franchise either.

So I'm guessing Crash Bandicoot in space?

mafiahajeri1159d ago

Cortex likes space and time travel doesn't he? Could be crash!

I_am_Batman1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

System Shock 3. mind = blown

http://i.minus.com/ib2jG0e6...

One_Eyed_Wizard1159d 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.

boneso821159d ago

Resistance 4?

I'd buy that

cpayne931159d ago

When they say classic franchise I would imagine something older than last gen.

slimeybrainboy1159d 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

Skizelli1159d ago (Edited 1159d 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).

hazeblaze1159d 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!

Cuzzo631159d ago (Edited 1159d 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

skwidd1159d ago

Come on people! It says in space!

COLONY WARS!!!!!!

*prays

jmac531159d 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.

Angeljuice1159d ago

Everyone seems to have forgotten Darklight Conflict, am I the only one who remembers the game?

Dude Dutch1159d ago

@angeljuice

Still have a copy somewhere, hardly can remember the gameplay though. Good ol' days

thisismyaccount1159d ago

Too many great IP Sony has... not easy to pick one. If i had to :

The Mark of Kri! Two

v6volume1159d 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_Wizard1159d ago

I don't think it's another Metal Gear game. Kojima will want to build more MGSV hype before announcing another one.

Tsar4ever011159d ago

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