The official US PlayStation 3 site has revealed the release date for one of the most anticipated games of the year.
Heavenly Sword will be exclusively available for PlayStation 3 on March 6th 2007.
this is very cool if it is true.
I'm really looking forward to this game.
but yeah Im not looking forward to this game at all. Im looking forward to that Naughty Dog game.
Ok, does anyone else find it a little odd that there has been zero hype around this game of late? I mean Motorstorm is set to release soon too and its been getting mad,crazy hype from Sony and the press. This game however really hasn't had the same kind of push. Maybe its just me....but it really does seem like this game has been kinda pushed to the back of the line by Sony. You would think if it really was that great of a game they would be pushing this one just as hard as Motorstorm to show how they have a number of impressive/great games just around the corner.
Sony can't afford to let sleeper hits come along right now....any good game needs to be hyped by them right?
are they microsoft ?
Nope...they don't have 10 million consoles sold. Do they need to boost the PS3 sales already? YUP! Do most analysts agree that more games will help? YUP!
So why again aren't they trying to get this game out into the public eye and hype it up?
Motorstorm had a lot to prove, while Heavenly Sword was impressing journalists from day one. It's barely mid-January, so there's still a lot of time. There is such a thing as advertising too early.
And didn't we hear that this title was coming out a bit later than March 6th?
I understand what you are saying. And from an individual publishers view yes you correct. Having another game overshadow yours is not ideal.
However, from Sony's vantage having multiple great games comging out on top of one another is very beneficial for the PS3.
Sony needs and wants their game library to fill out as fast as possible with quality based on the mediocre overall perception of launch games (RFOM being the exception). Not too mention they need great games in multiple genre's. If MS and HS were both racing games then I would say you have a point but they aren't. There is no reason why they couldn't/can't promote both at the same time.
Hey DJ : "Because having multiple games overshadow each other is not a good thing". Yeah sure, its like Warner bros not putting any tv ads for their next blockbuster because they don't want that Paramount movie to get a awful box-office.
All game publishers want to make money. Give it time, you'll get the hype like any other big budget.
well, if you buy playstation or other gaming magazine`s on a regular,there`s plenty of hype going on there about this game.And yea it`s been hidden for a while without many info leaks but i believe by February we gonna start hearing much about this baby...
The release date on the official site still just says 2007 though so I hope they can give us an exact date by at least next month. They should also put it out on the Playstation Network as a demo if they think it plays well enough, that would be sweet.
i think god of war 2 is not much hyped up these days only a demo shown.
great games will always be great no matter how.
blew it when they passed on it.hope it does come out march 6th.i need action and it and god of war 2 will give it to me.
HS and motorstorm are the 2 games that sony needs for its console to get of the shelfs cause if these games live up to the hype it could jumpstart sony which is what they really need at this moment. personally i think its gonna be 1 of the best games of 07.
I reserved it...and I was hoping for March 6th REALLY BAD!!! WOOHOO!!!
Please Sony, release some gameplay vids that are not of her in the arena, please!!! If its good then that will make two games that I will get for the ps3 when the price drops. Plus I like these kinds of games so hurry and convince me that its worth it!!! For your sake, I don't want to have to wait until the ps3 is $400 to get it!
Heavenly Sword to run at 30 fps at 720p only.
360 version confirmed and running at 60 fps 720p/1080i upscalable to 1080p.
breaking news: you're a troll, and need to stop posting this kind of crap on here. It's been confirmed this will be a ps3-exclusive game. Now get back in your hole.
correction sony only meaning ps3 only game so bad luck for 360 that goes for games like god of war iii coming only to the ps3
If a plasma runs at 1080i can it output 1080p? And ready to buy new screen and hard pic at this point. plasma,lcd
