Price cuts, 2 new games from Ico Developers, and much more...
I hope one of them is Shadow of the Collossus 2. I want play a Tale like i dit with ICO/SotC WOW if all what they listed are true than i will be broke fore the next two years. Jak4, SotC2/Online, Syphon Filter and a Insomniac game beside of Ratched and Clank:ToD 2 wow what an amazing year
I can smell an epic price drop from both side xD
Datafly don't care what console still getting it. The other rumors are rubbish nervous reactions
Honestly, this sounds like rumors somebody wished was true.
But god I hope it's true.
after reading it my heart beat got fast and man if this turns out to be true especially... Fumito Ueda will be there at GDC '09. He will announce 2 projects. One of them is Shadow of the Colossus Online. - Syphon Filter is underway to PS3. Apparently the developers are using the same engine behind Killzone2. - Insomniac is developing a new action platformer RPG. It looks like a Zelda clone. then we are brink of a new war of games....:P but man i dont think price cut it going to be happen any time soon if they would have done it with the release of killzone 2 that would have been helped alot but still if they do say its MEEEEEGGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAATOOOOO OOONNNNNNNN thanks
ahh the troll with baseless claims returns.. have you seen the recent Invisible Walls? even MS admit their GDC will suck
The new Team ico game will not be SOTC 2. It will be a different game altogether. Just like how Ico was different to SOTC.
This is too good to be true, so I won't believe it until I see it. The insomniac and Filter I can believe because I predicted a new IP from Insomniac and more DLC for Ratchet. I can't believe Team ICO because SOTC online? That's just not right. Isn't Dark Cloud 3 due out this year? TGSI
My heart skipped a few beats when I hear "Team ICO.....Jak 4....and a new Insomniac "action platformer" RPG that looks like a Zelda clone. I could not ask for more than a new IP from Insomniac and it being a platformer. And I have waited way too long for anything on Jak and Team ICO... I'll take it all with a grain of salt,and cross my fingers that any of this will come true at GDC...Heres to hoping... Speaking of hoping....Throw in some Dark Cloud,Beyond good and evil 2 news in too....
just a cheaper SKU
awesome! legend of the dragoon ftw! this was one of my favorite rpg's of all time. i also cant wait for that psp slide. i hope all of this rumor is true.
Team Ico are working on a normal title and a PSN title... this rumour has been circulating for a good few months.
I can tell you right now that there is gonna be a jak 4 probably alled jak and daxter:The lost frontier but who knows , I do know they wouldnt announce it till uncharted 2 is OUT lol. a new ip from insomniac would be good, I would like to see a resistance 3 so i can know WTF the ending to R2 was about. but other than that a SOTC is likely (probably not online) what about those weird pictrues from team ICO with the huge chain going onto a pit? anyways thats my take on it all.
this gdc looks explosive for sony hope for alan wake gameplay also
When Is gdc?
GDC march 23rd-27th
or simple it begins tomorrow
are there MS/SONY/NINTENDO keynotes? If so, which day are they? I don't think Sony or MS will announce that many things at a developers conference. The E3 would be a far better place to do so.
So far only 2 keynotes announced. 1 by Hideo Kojima Thursday, March 26, 10:30am-12pm And 1 from the President of Nintendo Satoru Iwato Wednesday, March 25th, 9-10am of course there will be more those are the only confirmed ones at the moment. Also Live coverage available a Gamasutra.com All info @ http://www.gdconf.com/
thanks for the info ! back to topic: I think these rumors are too much based on wishful thinking.
hell yeah, i hope they show something on it
"New 40gb ps3 sku will be launched this May. The cost will be 299$." already I detect fake.
If Sony makes a price cut announcement then it will be an immediate price cut. It would make no sense for people to know a price cut is coming a month from now so Sony's sales would drop. But I do think a price cut will be announced and it will be immediately available. I also cant wait for the new game from Ico.
but it could be possible the only reason why is because the one for $400 has 2 games bundled and they probably are going to be popular 1st party ones which means customers will get 2 games cheaper than buying a console without a bundled game for 300 it wont happen but thats why it could b a possibility
They are bundling the 399 PS3 with 2 greatest hits games. Motorstorm 1 and Resistance: Fall of Man.
I don't know why anyone would get the $399 version if that's true. for the $120 you can upgrade the 40 to a 320gb hd ($60 or so from some story here in the past 3 days) and get both the games in the other version. Essentially you end up paying $20 for an extra 240gb of space in your PS3 and get all the games in the 80gb version. Seems like a slightly odd pricing strategy.
3. how so? care to actually back that claim with reason? it wouldn't be the first time a 40GB SKU was introduced as part of a price cut, and it fits in line with the reports of certain retailers getting 80GB bundles with 2 games for $399. 3.1 i can agree it does sound too soon to announce, but look at the last time they announced a price cut... http://www.gamespot.com/new... a month ahead of the release.
they are not going to backtrack to a smaller hardrive. or in other words bring back the 40gb, which is the same as the 80gb. if you remembered the 40gb SKU, you would realize that its the same as a 80gb sku. BTW 40gb isnt the standard anymore when it comes to HDDs. plus as the library of PSN games get bigger and bigger, the HDD must increase as well. they are sticking with the 80gb while cutting the price for it soon. Everything else on that list I can bleieve especially the LoD2 rumor.
The new SKU will most likely also have a new 45nm cpu and some cost reductions. Same when they introduced the last 40/80GB model. The 80GB might be the current SKU (which most likely has already been build month ahead) and will get an value increase to sell of stocks. It makes perfectly sense.
i predict sony will dissapoint, microsoft take another game from the ps3 and the wii will present a new wii fit.
MS can take whatever they want. That strategy didn't work in the past and it won't work today (or in the future). Also, nothing they "took away" went 360 exclusive (at least nothing which mattered). BTW: With the speed Sony (studios) produces exclusives, MS will be busy coming up to yet take away all those games.
It doesn't matter, PS3'll just get the rest of an previously originally critically acclaimed 360 exclusive third party franchise such as; Condemned Saints Row Dead Rising Bioshock ...and counting.
They mentioend Legend of Dragoon, iam a Huge fan. Hope this comes true
after playing legends of dragoon years ago, i thought it was one of the best under appreciated of the PlayStation era
I wished I would have played the first one. But I remember seeing it and not thinking much of it.
SoTC online sounds very interesting also...
lvl5 website says they will be at GDC 09 , perhaps to talk about white knight chronicles??
That Legend of Dragoon rumor is true,really want to play a great JRPG on my PS3!
Shadow of the Colossus online?? WTF? does that makes any sense? Some of those rumors seems fake
it wouldnt work they would have to create like 100 different monsters to kill to make it even worth the purchase or else the community would die theres no reason for those devs to worry about a sequel to that game cant it just stay as it is?
It makes perfect sense actually considering the game was initially meant to be a multiplayer/coop-game, you were supposed to take down the Colossi with friends working together actually. The only problem was that they noticed that the ps2 couldn't handle that much stuff going on simultaneously with multiple players playing in, so they made it an awesome singleplayer experience in the end instead. :) Here's some footage of the SoTC-beta (or Nico as it was called back then) http://www.youtube.com/watc...
- Fumito Ueda will be there at GDC '09. He will announce 2 projects. One of them is Shadow of the Colossus Online. - Syphon Filter is underway to PS3. Apparently the developers are using the same engine behind Killzone2. - Insomniac is developing a new action platformer RPG. It looks like a Zelda clone. - Jak 4 is on the way too. Any one of those would be incredible.
All of this Gamesblow said one year ago, especially well i remember 2 Team IcO games when he said. Will shall see, this could be epic for sure.
"Syphon Filter is underway to PS3. Apparently the developers are using the same engine behind Killzone2." I can't wait to see that. Hope it's true.
SoTC Online? how the hell would that work? create your own colossus and kill it or something?
I know, right? Even though I like Team ICO, sounds a little iffy throwing what could be massively multiplayer action into the minimalist lore of Ico/SotC. A huge part of those games seems to be isolation through your environment. I don't doubt their ability to pull off an acceptable compromise, but definitely taking this as a rumour.
If true, maybe it will be in the the ICO/Colossus game world where you need a team of players to bring down a colossus and fight off various shadow creatures. Doubt it's true though.
An action platformer RPG? Ratchet Adventures would be awesome. :D
GDC 09 will be another domination from Sony...
tho's are some INTENSLY HEAVY rumors that are mentioned in that list... i will go for Legend of dragoon 2 and the psp slide but other then that ill take the rest as false or very VERY light rumors. :: DAMN!! SOOOO EXCITED :: btw wen does GDC start time and date wise?
monday through friday (23rd-27th)
SotC online could work really well. Make it a game in which the bosses were so big they would need many players to take down and would require team work as well. I would not say it would be a full blown MMO if it is true but it could certainly work as a online game that had 4-5 players. I think it would be quite interesting to see how they would get that to work if it is indeed true. Alot of the other rumors sound quite feasible aside from the 40g PS3 but the one that does confuse me is Legend of Dragoon. Why they would bring back a game from the PS1 era that most gamers never played or don't remember is beyond me. I think it sounds a little far fetched to be honest and I think there are far better games in the PS1 back catalog that could be brought back to better effect then Legend of Dragoon but that is just my opinion.
i see what you mean by the monster hunter style gameplay... that could work, but it would lose the emotional charm of the intimate single player ICO experiences... of course that would be ok if their second game is a poignant single player experience akin to ICO and SoTC
That looks abit too good to believe, Jak 4, 2 new ICO games, a price cut (well it's not actually a "price cut") and PSP slide. Just for GDC, that's a bit much lol and Insomniac working on an Action RPG? doubt it very much most probably Ratchet. If it's true then :) :) :) :).
-somebody thinks, if he disagrees with one of us that we are changing our minds
Looks like a wish list. As for a next gen Legend of Dragoon,I think Silogon was the first to mention that
but i hope its true^^
i disagree.. most of those rumors co-ordinate with rumors circulating the net, and the SoTC Online is hardly a wishlist item we'll see i guess
....sorry but this is just a wish list.
Maybe. But it would be cool if it was true. We won't really know until GDC. Fingers crossed. :)
I heard a Legend of Dragoon rumor last year and was like meh i don't want to get too excited but now i can let it all out,I'm so happy another LoD is coming out since i really enjoyed the first one i wonder will it be a direct sequel or be a whole new game world with new characters.
Seems like the forum member ate alot of beans. Because he blowing alot of this sh!t out his A$$. Sony will not go BACKWARDS with a 40 gig Sku, There will be NO SHADOW ONLINE lol This sounds like rumors from a very well known website lol
Why not ? Great entry level machine. $50 (yeah, yeah, like a membership, you know) for a 250GB drive and its all good - and still cheaper then $400.
SOTC Online....hell yeah! Game is still one of my favorite games, traded my 360 to my friend for his ps2 to play that game.... loved it EDIT : i traded my xbox360 for like 2 weeks i should say sorry about that so no not dumb......yet dont know how that will exactly work but as Reibooi said, 4 to 5 people vs 1 colossus might be cool , 1 person is the colossus? haha that would be hard to do. Maybe even getting different gear in the game, DLC of future monsters A lot of good things came come of that game. Insomniac makes awesome games to began with and them making a platformer rpg sounds like an even better idea. Ratchet and Clank games are somewhat close in a way to that but can definitely expand. I was wondering when I was going to hear about Jak 4 but not that interested unless the trailer blows my mind Syphon Filter using the same engine as Killzone 2...... WINNER! but Killzone 2 is getting me motion sick :( Legend of Dragoon.... never played or seen but people talk mostly good about it so hey, the more the merrier and I do like me some RPG I believe thats what it is. If these are all true of couse which I could see for the most part everything, except the SKU but they need something for E3 too, ya know.
a dumb choice hope your kidding you can get a used ps2 cheap as hell
The rumor of Sony bringing back the 40GB PS3 for $299 sounds possible to me... the only reason I would doubt the rumor is that I don't think Sony would be backtracking and going back to a smaller hard drive... but seriously, Sony has GOT to find a way to introduce a PS3 at a cheaper price, even if it means bringing back the 40Gig again. "- The currently available PSP model will get a price cut too. The cost will be 119$. " I don't think the PSP would be cut to $119 because then it would be cheaper than the DS... I'm thinking maybe it'll be cut to $149 max, but not more than that. "- Insomniac is developing a new action platformer RPG. It looks like a Zelda clone. " ^^ That rumors sounds very exciting and I hope it's true because I really want something else other than Resistance and Rachet from Insomniac this gen. Insomniac recently opened up a new studio here in my state of N.C., so maybe that's what they are working on over there. "- Jak 4 is on the way too." I've been wanting a next gen Jak game for ages, and hope it's true, but once Naughty Dog has started a new IP, they aren't known for going back to older franchises. After Naughty Dog finishes up Uncharted 2, I REALLY want them to go back and make at least ONE more Jak and Daxter game.
A new ratchet will be out this yeat as Quest for Booty confirmed it. There is a Ratchet Competition on the PS3blog about creating a weapon. I assume it will be put in to the game. I am looking forward for a Jak game. It possibly a PSN game but I could be wrong considering Naughty Dog released a game a Year like insomnaic.
I looked everywhere for that Ratchet Competition on the PS3blog about creating a weapon? Could not find a thing.Could you please point me in the right direction.Thanks for any help if possible... ----------------------------- ------------------------------- ---------- You can always hope they expanded,and are going for 2 games at a time as Insomniac have done... Uncharted 2 this year,and jak 4 next year? Lets hope so. Perhaps they show a snippet of Jak 4 at GDC or E3...
Actually,there's a Whi.... You'll just have to wait for it mate :)
