Sony’s Shahid Ahmad Wishes He Could Tell us What he Saw Today: “It Was Soooo Good”

Apparently Sony Computer Entertainment Senior Business Development Manager Shahid Ahmad had a full day, and he saw some very exciting things, so exciting that he saw fit to take to twitter and let everyone know.

The story is too old to be commented.

And here comes the teasing.

Whatever he saw they better show us at E3.

Now I feel like I am reading reddit comment thread

Conzul827d ago (Edited 827d ago )

I'd just like to add that I agree with These People.

Sevir827d ago

He works with indies and XDEV europe so It seems like RIME and Shadow of the Beast may have been previewed and are about due for prime time! :) I cant wait to see those 2 games in motion!

Thehyph827d ago

@Sevir

I'm sitting here wondering why you said prime time instead of rime time.

UltraNova827d ago

OK GUYS HERE'S SOMETHING FOR YOU THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MINDS TO KINGDOM COME!!!

But, I 'm not allowed to tell you.

AceBlazer13827d ago

This guy loves indies so it's probably an indie. I'm guessing either Everybody's Gone to Rapture or Rime, heck maybe both. Can't wait to see more of these 2.

Fishermenofwar827d ago

Your concurrence is concurred with other concurrences concurrently

ChristianTheAtheist826d ago

I third the seconded seconded concurred concurrence that kydrice concurs with.

"I wish I could tell you what I saw today. But I can’t. I’m sorry"

then why say anything in the first place shahid we would have carried on with our lives like nothing happened untill you said that.is it me or has this gen turned into an excuse for any little info to be turned into a tease or some sorts. i dont mind a few tease here and there but god damn it

slimeybrainboy827d ago

Yeah it's kinda lame but at least we know this E3 is gonna be HUGE. Even just the games we know about but havent seen enough of will be interesting. Let alone the shit we know nothing about!

Software_Lover827d ago

It's ridiculous man. I'm sure people in this industry wish they could tell us a lot of stuff that they see but they know to just carry on.

Right now I know someone at Bungie is playing Halo 5............. I'm sure they wish they could share info but they just hush.

kneon827d ago

It's just marketing, even saying nothing will still generate dozens of articles speculating about what it might be. And then when they finally reveal whatever it is they can get yet more coverage.

Destrania827d ago

@Software_Lover

You know Bungie doesn't make Halo anymore, right?

Silly Mammo827d ago

Really getting tired of all the announcements that there are going to be announcements. And then the other company has to release a statement in response saying "Don't forget about us! We have some crazy sh*t coming out to!! We just can't reveal it yet either!". This could be a very tiresome generation.

elda827d ago

I know what you mean...I hate this done to me by some of the people I know.

Chrischi1988827d ago

All to feed the hype train with new wood. And everyone just believes it, without thinking before, because its the PS4 we are talking about.

levian827d ago

There's been a ton of these lately and it's driving me nuts! "We have awesome stuff coming up that we can't show, or tell anything about!" Thanks guys, that was helpful

Dang it Sony, why do you tease us? D': Who else is psyched for the oncoming wave of awesome?

Mikelarry827d ago

this year E3 I am going to send the missues and the kid to grannies , stock up on junk food, shut the windows /doors , switch of my mobile phone and stay glued to my TV as they announce wave and wave of new and upcoming games for current gen consoles

fr0sty827d ago

As much as I know he's telling the truth, I gotta admit all these gaming execs saying "I saw a game we have coming out, and it was SUPER AWESOME!" is getting a bit old. Of course they're going to say that about something they're trying to sell you, lol.

Lboogieskells827d ago

This guy has a history of exaggerating, I'll keep my expectations low. I'm still looking forward to E3, I can't wait to see what Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo have planned.

dillhole827d ago

I seem to remember a few months back Microsoft promising the "Biggest surprise ever" at E3. I still wonder what could possibly come from such a claim.

Thatguy-310827d ago

I mean he could tell us. No one knows who he really is lol unless people do know who he is and his job is simply to make hype

rainslacker827d ago

He's responsible for developer relations, in particular on the indie side of things over at PS. He gets to see a lot of stuff on a daily basis, and he is usually pretty general in there being a lot of great stuff being in the works. He's not prone to exaggeration. He does have PR duties of course, but this kind of statement is uncharacteristic of him. He's usually pretty down to earth and takes the middle of the road when it comes to hype.

Farsendor1827d ago

done with teasers at this point i know the games are coming heck games have already released good games. ff14 is one of those just if they arent going to announce the game why tease it?

onyoursistersback827d ago

@ Shahid Ahmad,

"Am I to put $1 in your G-string to show us more?"

lol.....IT BETTER BE GOOD!

XStation827d ago

This year's E3 is gonna be amazing.

Minato-Namikaze827d ago (Edited 827d ago )

Dragon quest 8 vita?!?!

Kurisu827d ago

Wouldn't you rather a Dragon Quest XI? Would be interesting to see if it would be released on PlayStation or Nintendo platforms.

Massacred827d ago

0- Type?!
Shenmue?!
Agent!?

XxExacutionerxX827d ago

Is Sony ripping off Microsoft with the power of cloud on the PS4.

GutZ31826d ago

Don't agree with your wording, but yes, and no.
Because technically, Sony was doing the gaming side first
(by a small margin, could mean they both stole it((onlive says HI!)).

Microsoft has had compute side servers for years, just never did much R&D for gaming until recently.

solar827d ago

the next X1 exclusive :P

Psycho_Mantis827d ago

Good ol' chap. You are indeed right mah sir. Concurred.

AndrewLB827d ago

If the guy can't go public with any information he should just shut the f*ck up. He's a grown man, but he sure as hell doesn't act like one.

/runs for cover as Sony fanboys throw their knee pads at me.

kenshiro100827d ago

Oh man, my excitement just shot up to 100%.

CJDUNCAN827d ago

probably more exclusive indies lol.

bothebo827d ago

So it's an indie..... kind of let down.

Abriael827d ago (Edited 827d ago )

Apparently he had several appointments, so there's more than one, and only one is known was indie.

porkChop827d ago

With the exception of #jrpgvita, Shahid works almost exclusively with indies. So whenever he teases something it's pretty safe to assume it was an upcoming indie game. That's not necessarily a bad thing though.

Hellsvacancy827d ago (Edited 827d ago )

This pointless article will go to 1000* in no time

"Hay I saw a game today".............and that's it

randomass171827d ago

Well it could be a guy saying that what he saw was total crap. I dunno about you, but I like good news better than bad news. :P

gigoran827d ago

@Hellsvacancy using your logic more than 50% of the MS articles are pointless. Half of them are undisclosed game coming, unnamed title coming, exciting secret game coming.

Also, thanks for sharing your pointless comment.

Hellsvacancy827d ago

50% of the MS articles ARE pointless

Move on fanboy

dmeador827d ago

No kidding, currently the hottest article is a guys tweet hyping something their company will make money of off, with zero info.

To the Sony fanboys who will (hilariously) get defensive bc of this: 1) Calm down 2) would feel the same if MS fanboys voted up similar

Cloudberry827d ago

Come on YAKUZA 5 & ISHIN ENGLISH!!!

>_<

randomass171827d ago

Now THAT I'm sure we'd all freak out over.

gigoran827d ago

Yakuza titles localized in English? Unlikely. Kotaku, being the "professionals" they are bashed the living daylights out of the Yakuza series in an article. The creator of Yakuza saw it and commented that he doesn't know why he goes to the trouble and expense of localizing his games when all they do is complain like him (the "professional" Kotaku writer). So when they don't localize any Yakuza games, just remember to say a BIG thank you to Kotaku.
