Sony worldwide studio head Shuhei Yoshida has given the clearest indication yet that the firm is ramping up to the announcement of Fumito Ueda's next game, confirming to VG247 that the PS3 project will be shown "soon."
At TGS, we already guessed :P
year of the unique games for ps3 heavy rain,mag and this ps3 is going from strength to strength
If the "secret" BBC PS3 game isn't Heavy Rain then this HAS TO be it. And I'm pretty sure that by "soon" he means TGS in October.
i can't wait to see what they show!!!
I the game still unannounced? I would have thought it was Eye pet. well what ever it is the Ps3 looks like its going to have another good year *sigh* i need a job.
Be afraid people. Team Ico is capable of amazing things. They create masterpieces
I know what you mean. I'm on a job hunt right now >.<
This is the game that can make a difference. This is the game can push the ps3 to its limit. (for the third year) This is the game will be on the top list of best games on all time. This is the game most true gamers looking for. This is the game is truly can differentiates the ps3 from all consoles. This is the game that can be compare to MGS4 in production value. This is the game that changed my life as a gamer beside MG on the MSX. What can i say more. in Sum I Love this Game. ps: hopefully it is more than 7 hours of game play.
BTW, is TGS before or Sony gamer's day?
SGD is next year TGS is this year.
Tokyo Game Show - October 9-12 Sony's game day is next july I think
Lets hope "soon" would be TGS in October.
I simply cannot wait to see what this team is able to accomplish with the power of the PS3. They've already created two of my favorite games of all time and I'm giddy with excitement over what their next offering could be. They've already managed so much with reletively little experience. I can only see their future projects improving. Here's hoping for something at TGS! *crosses fingers*
I never got to play Shadow Of Colossus. Gutted because I never saw it here in NZ. If ICO was anything to go by then I cant wait for this title. Where are ICO based ??
Team ICO are based in Japan
lol, I'm the opposite. Played SOTC but never got to ICO but I'm sure I saw SOTC in stores like DSE and The Warehouse, they probably still have copies left, you should try pick one up.
Ill try look for it man. I seriously want to play it.
Never got to to play SOTC but Ico looked like a PS3 game. Yes I'm exaggerating a little but I remember a lot of the environments and it brings to mind Uncharted(Without the HD and Hi-res textures).
Sony is really trying to put a beat down on the 360 right now with all these announcments.. There going for the KO!! I can name like 10 or 12 triple AAA exclusive games coming out in the next year or so for the ps3.. 5 of them in the next couple of months, resistance 2, motorstorm 2, socom, wipeout hd, and LPB.. I think we all know these games are going to be bad a$$.. And they still have a bunch of unannounced games like jak, uncharted 2, ICO game, and the list goes on.. Sony is really pulling out all the stops.. they Listened to all of us.. SHOW THE GAMES.. it looks like the 360 is lacking in the games department these days... Funny how the tides turned so quickly.. Hook me up with some bubbles.. Dang 360 fanboys took them from me.
If you think about it, sony has wised up a little. If you've noticed, they are now announcing games that are to be released next year, some of them early next year. And yes, we might have known about these before (e.g. heavy rain) but they weren't officially announced. Same with uncharted 2, we know it's coming, the devs have confirmed this, but nothing's been shown or announced. They have games in hand so that if microsoft were to try and steal the show, they can just announce a couple of exclusive games. That's exactly what happened at E3, you could tell sony wasn't really ready to show MAG (and GOW3), with just a trailer and a sh1t name. Now that we are closing on all these major releases, we're seeing more games that are coming out in the future.
Finally a game worth waiting for. I'm sick of FPS, Sports games and Plastic button hero taking up all the attention.
Heavy rain doesn't fit into those genres (or any genre perhaps?) and there's infamous and GOW3 to look forward to next year as well. I agree with the plastic button hero comment lol
Well "soon" can mean a lot of things, back in early 2007 the Home beta was coming "soon". Still with TGS round the corner that would mark the obvious time to release some information. "soon" better be soon.
With Home it was a release date coming soon. With this there is an announcement coming soon. It's MUCH easier to announce a game then to deliver an app. I wouldn't doubt this info.
man TGS can't come soon enough :) if there's any game that can shut the xkiddies up... it's this, although you just know their close-minded shooter-centric minds will peg the game as "boring"
This guy is just so giddy over it, he's head of sony's world wide studios but its just this one game that he's excited about showing. i think im starting to like the guy but im still pissed at him for telling us to ask the 3rd partys to put the classics on psn.
He seems glad that Team ICO is one of Sony's strongest *first party* developers. I'm sure gamers everywhere can agree with that sentiment. Come this fall, PS3 owners are in for a real treat! Edit: I stand corrected. Thank you for the rectification.
Team ICO are part of Sony.
If Team Ico were indeed third-party, I think MS would already have paid them a visit carrying money bags, don't you?
No, Team Ico + Xbox just wouldn't go together. Plus Sony treats its developers better than Microsoft do
this news is awesome, bring the goods Yoshida(and i know you will)
I work away to bring the best experiences to the Playstation family
is it just me, or does this Yoshida fella seem like a really good bloke, he doesn't pay out anyone and he doesn't talk like a propoganda PR machine, he talks in an extremely balanced manner that really makes me think he is a perfect substitute for Phill, maybe even better?.
And he's also not Shane Kim. So that's another plus for Yoshida.
I actually like this guy better then Reeves because this guy doesnt just talk, he backs up his talk with power house games like this game here being made by Team Ico, which I know is going to be nothing but pure amazingness. :)
I am sure you guys will enjoy what Team ICO has in store for you.Stay tuned
we will see another classic. Team ICO is best. alright guys a pumping speech hahaha. it was the era of PS2 with System Memory: 32 MB Vector Units: VU0 and VU1 (Floating Point Multiply Accumulator × 9, Floating Point Divider × 1), 128 bit, at 150 MHz Floating Point Performance: 6.2 gigaFLOPS 3D CG Geometric transformation(VU0+VU1 parallel): 66 million polygons per second Cache memory: Instruction: 16 KB Graphics processing unit: "Graphics Synthesizer" clocked at 147 MHz Audio: "SPU1+SPU2" (SPU1 is actually the CPU clocked at 8 MHz) etc etc etc and this team created Shadow of the clossus when u encounter 1st it was breathtaking and believe me i did not know about this game some dude at my store said this game sucks pick mortal kombat armageddon but i picked it and it was well worth it. they have done wonders with PS2 which was inferior to all. now imagine what will this team + GOW team will do with the beast known as PS3. thanx
I guess its good news. I like Team ICO's games. Hope its real soon rather than one of those "HOME SOON"
Is that the actual game. Or a CG trailer?
Team Ico games never used CG. Everything was in game.
It's truly sad for a gamer to not be able to play a game made by Team ICO. Poor Xbots...
to play them ageing they r amazing games n i'm glad i buy them one more time to play them on my ps3, next buy ICO i never play that game just 5min of it like 6 years ago :( n i like what i play but never got the chance to play it more but i will buy it very soon to play it :D i'm glad i have my 60gb ps3 so i can play all the old ps2 classics ps. if u have not play SOTC,KZ1 or ICO(i have not play the whole game but i know its great) n go back to a store n buy them... they r great.
maybe on TGS2008 next month mayyybbbeeee?
Reeves will be wrong about HR being the biggest PS3 game of 2009 because anything Team Ico makes will be beyond awesomeness.
C'mon, make me happy.
it's gonna be on tgs, it has to be!
Yeah, I think it would be a real missed opportunity to not announce it at TGS. That's assuming it's released in '09 though. Even if they give us a little taste to get an idea of what to expect, then I'd be happy.
Awesome! I wonder what it could be. I fell in love with Team Ico when I played SOTC, that game is just pure awesomeness it's in a genre of it's own and I know that their next game will be just as innovative and unique.
So many great games for PS3. I'm hoping to see White Knight Chronicles at TGS.
Team Ico game Heavy rain MAG Killzone 2 God of war 3 Uncharted 2 2009 will be another great year for PS3
2008 is arguable
L.A. Noire. It's exclusivity isn't set in stone, but for the moment it counts. White Knight Story is also coming out. Hopefully it's as good as it seems.
sony started listening to its fans? When did that happen?
When have they not? 2.41 (for instance) was an update that the fans chose. The things people talked about most were put in. One easy example is the clock. Nobody at Sony suggested it, they just listened to the fans.
I can't freakin wait!
but we the bots can wait!! for how long u ask?? i say for ever, as long MS exist!! we bots r very jealous of this game!! for every AAA exclusive game for ps3 there will be mass suicide!! Mr Bot
You knowts its going to be a AAA game.. I'd like to find out about Dark cloud 3 aswell..i hope it wasnt just rumors..
At TGS perhaps?
A great company who's games don't stink! http://www.squidoo.com/doug...
2008=year of change 2009=year of dominince 2010=year of ms trying to claw back 2011 year of sony quit making games i must own i have rent to pay.
the vast majority of young gamers only care about shooting stuff read the afrika comments 'id get this game if it was like dear hunter' is it just photography or do you hunt?' just two of the lame comments ive read team ico are awesome i picked up sotc and ico when i saw them i was like sweet two more legends for my collection
how much more of my money does sony want? i have quite a few games for this holiday 2008 now i have to start saving up for games in 2009 possibly mag GoW3 Heavy Rain Team Ico Project inFamous
that just made my day
I want to go to the TGS !!
omg omg omg omg
...exciting news! I've yet to snag a copy of ICO but SOTC was amazing. Absolutely fantastic, a truly unique gaming experience that I didn't expect to have when I first put the game in my PS2. I cannot wait to see what they have in store for us next.
I haven't played ICO or Shadow. I'm now a real loser geek, right?
are generally unveiled at TGS. i could have sworn that Ico and Shadow of the Colossus were unveiled at TGS. those that know for sure, correct me if i'm wrong. i don't care WHAT they show, i'm buying it day one. after playing Ico, i didn't think Shadow of the Colossus could match up to it. i was WRONG, and i love Shadow more than Ico. even if their new game doesn't surpass Ico or SOTC, it doesn't matter. i guarantee it will be a moving game regardless. man, i don't even want to start THINKING about Team Ico's games right now. it's just too painful to know the unveiling is still a ways off, and the games release is even further away. i need to distract myself with the games coming out this month and September and October, before TGS.
the bomb of TGS has been announced be ready for it .
