Way back in 2006 Sony announced a new IP for the PlayStation 3. That game was Eight Days: an action packed third-person shooter that looked like it was going to blow the socks off of players.
Too bad they cancelled this. Would be great if Sony London had this reworked for PS4.
This game had so much potential. The set pieces remind me of some of the scenes from the fast and the furious franchise.
This game might be remade for project morpheus i have a feeling like that london heist demo it might be the getaway or something exclusivley for morpheus
what they should be doing is releasing the rights to crowdfunding so that the game can be made if the public still wants it.
I'm not sure how the game is "long awaited", when it was announced as having been cancelled.
Actually they later came out and said it was "on hold" -- they said the same for The Getaway 3. The truth is, they put those two games on hold to develop stuff like EyePet and SingStar games, because they were really hot and profitable games over there in Europe apparently. Total BS, since both of those games (Getaway 3 and Eight Days) were two of the games I'd gotten my PS3 for back in early '08...
Game was known and announced as "cancelled" circa 2011. Eurogamer article, here: http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
I'd not seen that before. Before they just said it was on hold: http://www.gamespot.com/art... But that was from 09, most likely it's either canned or perpetually on the backburner for now.
kinda sad what happened with the soho(?) team. if they still around, hopefully they can get back to working on getaway or this game.
Yeah forced to make singstar / eyepet / wonderbook games last gen. I hope they have something good under wraps for ps4
wished this game had came out
It's kinda funny to look back at it. At the time it looked amazing but now it looks, well, so last gen xD
graphics were ok i guess, but the animation looked fantastic compared to all other games at that time. obviously nothing compared to uncharted or killzone but i cant think of a game from 360 that had animations like this.
Yeh this is one of sony's bad choices wish they kept it going obviously now it would mean a whole rework.
8 Days? Never heard of it.
it was popular for the tech demo that had the exploding petrol station when the ps3 was announced. at that stage the art style wasnt that great and i remember it was cgi. didnt hear much after that and it got cancelled, we then got a leaked footage clip which was very impressive. bu obviously it would be quite easy to miss these news. these were days before smartphones so news didnt spread as fast a it does now.
The trailer was hot.
i like how the bodies have been smashed and crushed against loads of concrete and still holding on with out a scratch lol
"Long Awaited" yeah ok
This gameplay footage is so old. Some people have used it on youtube claiming it to be the newest GTA lol
I don't think 'long awaited' is the right word here. Was anyone truly still waiting for this? I can't imagine that to be the case. This was confirmed as cancelled a long time ago. Games like The Last Guardian are 'long awaited', but the use of the term in this case just seems like intentional sensationalism.
Sony not sticking with this title was one of their biggest mistakes in the early years of ps3, as someone who loves action adventure third person games this broke my heart... Bring it back Sony!
I was really looking forward to this title, They had Ving Rhames and Gary Oldman in this game. and the cover and buddy system looked really interesting as well.
Talking trademark must been not worth keeping. Most likely name change. A new direction in the game. Some game make the cut some don't simple as that.
long awaited.............. don't be a drama queen...........
Could have been a great game. They don't really make games like that anymore. third person shooters are around but none that can match the athletisism of the characters and the smooth animations of what this wanted to be. They should give it a try. Uncharted and Max Payne are the closest you'll get to this game. We need games like this and Syphon Filter to become something real. The games will be small enough to balance the mechanincs and make the graphics amazing so everyone will win.
Well, it was about time if they weren't going to do anything with it.
Could be a great game, well, we will never know. But it has potential, i really like TPS.
