BBC: Was the Exclusive PS3 Mystery Game Revealed At E3? Nope, And Its Not MAG

BBC Darren writes:

"A reader of the blog - Kyle Barrett - has emailed to ask if a mystery game I had teased people with a few months ago had finally been revealed at Sony's E3 press conference.

If the footage I was shown truly is "in game", as told to me by the Sony PR people, then we could be on the brink of a step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion."

The story is too old to be commented.

Hmmmm... this is exciting:)

We can definitely rule out heavy rain now and with it surfer girls credibility.

The "ACE" still lies in wait. Leipzig will be so fun as will TGS.

Hagaf223771d ago

sounds like sony is really pumping it up for the tokyo game show.... what better place huh? use e3 to see what the competition has to offer then blow them away in tgs.... cant wait...

Harry1903771d ago (Edited 3771d ago )

but at Leipzig Sony will also reveal the new Singstar Next Gen.

Liquid Dust3771d ago

Sony seems to have something they think is just incredibly important up their sleeve. But with this much secrecy it must truly be some sort of "ultimate" IP. Sony is holding back so much, they must be getting ready to just unload on the competition. Bring it

Lol, the new SingStar has it's own community and the ability to upload & share your own videos with other PS3 users with SingStar. It's amazing but it's crazy to see Sony will be raising the bar yet again with this new SingStar game. It'll be interesting to see what they have in store for us.

The image used for this article is the one from the Heavy Rain poster.

Panthers3771d ago

It could have been heavy rain. They didnt show that to the public.

sunnygrg3771d ago

Sony gamers will bless you if you leak it nao.

i e-mailed the blog askin em this and neva got a reply lol!

I doubted it was MAG because of the mention of story telling by bbc and I don't think MAG came across as a story kind of game.

I am Kyle Barrett!!

I sent that!


mfwahwah3770d ago

Heavy Rain WAS shown to the public... back in '06. I'm really interested as to what this game is though...

Mystery_Person3770d ago

If they still can't talk about it that means the game still has a long way to go before it can be released and they don't want to get our hopes up just like they did with HOME and Little Big Planet.

CrazedFiend3770d ago

I honestly would rather NOT be told until maybe half a year before the game's release.

I'm sick of this current game of waiting 2 or 3 years before a game comes out. Waiting through delay after delay because they really shouldn't bother revealing release dates in the first place.

This being made worse by waiting for games that eventually get canceled because the developers can't handle it or there's some sudden change in the company's strategy (Ahem...thanks for COMPLETELY SCRAPPING "Eight Days" and "The Getaway" SCEE! Changing your strategy shouldn't mean killing games already announced and in development. People are already waiting for those games).

I appreciate that something wicked this way comes. But I don't care to know what it is until the wait for said game is at a more reasonable length.

Good job. Take your secret to the grave if you have to BBC man!

TheColbertinator3770d ago

I cant wait to see it..... whenever the hell that may be.

decapitator3771d ago

We will see Heavy Rain at Leipzig next month so am thinking maybe TGS is where we will get to see whatever the hell the BBC dood means.

AznSniper3771d ago

But the thing is, this guy visited the Sony studios in the UK so it's likely a game from one of those Sony studios there. I doubt that it's going to be at TGS where the reveal is because it's more likely to be at Leipzig.

decapitator3771d ago

Yeah, I hope they reveal Both? games at E3. If not, they should at least show Heavy Rain.

pwnsause3771d ago (Edited 3771d ago )

I pretty sure its not heavy rain, everyone knows what heavy rain is. whatever this game is, it might probably be the game with will solidfy the PS3 as the winner of this console war, just like how Donkey Kong Country was the game that help solidify the SNES as the victor of that console war 3 Generations ago

decapitator3771d ago

Well yeah, they say it hasnt been announced yet. Also, I don't think is Heavy Rain because, the game was shown to the press at E3 but they couldn't talk about it but they could make it public that they saw Heavy Rain.

The BBC guy isn't even allowed to say the name of the game...

TheColbertinator3771d ago (Edited 3771d ago )

Dddddddddaaaaaaammmmmmmmnnnnnn nnn For sure I thought it was Heavy Rain or MAG but no?Really?Holy MOTHER OF GOD!

butterfinger3771d ago

wasn't lying when he said it was something we had no idea about. We all knew Heavy Rain was coming, but whatever this is is bound to shock us all. I can't wait to see what Sony has in store for us:)

Veryangryxbot3771d ago

Sony has the best internal studios around only rivaled by Nintendo. Nintendo dont have a lot of studios but they have powerful IPs.

Sony has several more games up their sleeves that they have yet to reveal. They never reveal everything.

After seeing what their studios can do, I do not question the authenticity of the claim. Where else can you have games like LittleBigPlanet, Massive Action Game, Resistance 2, Uncharted, Ratchet, Gran Turismo, God of War 3, HOME and more.

Where else. Play beyond. Next gen gaming only starts when Sony says it will start = proven correct.

BYE3771d ago

Seems reasonable, as Microsoft doesn't seem to have ANYTHING innovative up its sleeve.

'If the footage I was shown truly is "in game", as told to me by the Sony PR people, then we could be on the brink of a step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion'
Another??? Exclusive PS3 Game??? WOW!!!COOL! ;-P

TheXgamerLive3770d ago

EVERY game, until it's released to the public is a mystery game, so there is no mystery game as such or they all are, either way, get a life and stop making sh1t up.

Sometimes devs don't release game info until a game is far along b/c there not even sure it's doable or if there will even be a publisher for it. So seriously, cool your jets, there is no magical mystery game as you wanting to believe.

syanara3770d ago

we havn't heard anything from naughtydog or NCsoft so how much you want to bet its from one of those developers? we don't know exactly what Naughty dog is working on next it could be uncharted, it could be jak and daxter the new fronteir er w/e that game was gonna be called but then again it could be guild wars 2 or somethng from nc soft those 2 devs are silent so I think it would be a good bet its one of them

syanara3770d ago

someone is gonna have to answer this for me why is it that Pain Never has any bubbles its like the very second he posts there isn't a single bubble?

TheColbertinator3770d ago

Pain isn't annoying or anything like that so its weird.Pain hardly says anything wrong and Pain loses bubbles.

Interesting. All eyes on Leipzig and TGS.

vasilisk3771d ago

TGS for the SE announcement and Leipzig for this mystery game. It's developed in Europe so I'll doubt they're going to announce it in TGS

Overr8ed3771d ago

i hate that Sony does this to us... let alone one person teasing us of this game.
