Starhawk: Is Sony Biting off more than they can Chew?

The Power Review: This game has a lot to live up to, as its predecessor still remains one of the most played games on the PSN, and this is over 2 years after its initial release. Fans of this series are going to expect a lot out of this title, and Sony has chosen to be extremely ambitious by setting this title in space where there is seemingly limitless potential. However, are they shooting themselves in the foot by trying to attempt too much? And what new obstacles does this change in scenery present for this new game?

They have a name of a game, and a concept for the game, and here come the articles already. How's about waiting until we have....I don't know....actual information......until we start talking about it? Let's try that.

At least lets wait till we hear that Starhawk is actually a sequal to Warhawk!

Edit: I did read the article.

FPShooter3410d ago

I Agree.
seems as if people cant wait to shoot down a SONY title. Its getting ridicules.

UNCyrus3410d ago


I'm just stating that this game has a lot to live up to... there are really high expectations, and it's a very ambitious title....

I would LOVE to see Sony pull it off, I would play the game until my PS3 burned out, but I'd just like to see them pull it off first..

ThanatosDMC3410d ago

Holy crap! It's gonna rape my grandma?!! AAHHHH!! She's 6ft under all ready... bless her soul.

Megaton3410d ago (Edited 3410d ago )

How is it an ambitious title? All it is right now is a title! Nothing is known about this game. NOTHING! This is f**king absurd. Classic N4G.

sonarus3410d ago (Edited 3410d ago )

I came in here with the same WTF reaction as well. This is why blogs need to die

ThanatosDMC3410d ago

Just more damage control. Just like when MAG was announced they were saying how crappy the graphics would looks like and when in-game screenshots came out, they stopped talking.

Checks gaming news on the internet. "Oh, looks like a new game is being announced. StarHawk. . . . . . . Sounds cool."

Begins to write his article and decides upon the title:

'FINALLY, a next gen space sim title'

. . . . . Ok, lets see what platform this new game is on. . . . Play....Station.....3.

'Has sony bitten off more then it can chew?'

"However, are they shooting themselves in the foot by trying to attempt too much?"

- Simple answer: No it's the PS3. I know it's hard to believe all this. But it is the PS3.

The rape my grandma comment made me laugh out loud and confuse my girlfriend.

sigh Cyrus...

If they just announced Warhak2 set in the same environment as warhawk they would complain that Warhawk 2 will not bring anything new.

Most game journalist are not thinking straight these days. Recently i commented on an article which ask weather Sony is afraid of Prototype lol!.

I love the fact that Sony at least are trying to bite more.

Rainstorm813410d ago

Sony is doing exactly what they need to do by keeping the games coming.

Personally i hope StarHawk is to WarHawk like Starcraft is to Warcraft
we will be in for good times. Looks like they have games well into 2011.

f7897903410d ago

Starhawk and Warhawk? Starhawk sounds idiotic but its obvious that it is related in some way to Warhawk.

morganfell3410d ago

The poster that ripped the writer a new one in the comments section of the article makes a valid point. When has Sony not raised the bar recently? They met and exceeded expectations on the highest goal possible. On the goal far too many felt they could not possibly achieve. Killzone 2. Sony has shown they can aim high and hit high.

And though I feel there is a very good chance this game is a sequel to Warhawk that is something as of yet we simply do not know.

Kudos to the writer for taking the dumb way out and joining the ever expanding club of question mark journalists that believe metaphor is another way of saying 'why I encountered her'.

II-Reaper-II3410d ago

They havent even said its a Warhawk sequel for crying out loud.Next article will probably say ..Is Sony being stupid for developing so many AAA exclusive titles?Itll probably be a HHG article.LOL

Already trying to tear down the game before any information is available… great job. This is why people complain that gaming journalism is biased. There is absolutely no reason to attack this game, as there is nothing to even attack yet. Extremely lame.

NateNater3410d ago

Is Starhawk the actual confirmed name of the game? I think it sounds to similar to Starfox

UNCyrus3410d ago

nothing's confirmed...

The title was registered as a copyright to SCEA the other day... With the rumors going around about the sequel being in space, it would only make sense that this was the case

krauley3410d ago

"nothing's confirmed...

or it could be a game about a bird in space. you know StarHAWK but then sony would be bitting off my then they can chew cause you know the physics collision of feathers in space wouldnt be realistic. and how could a bird breathe unless it had a spacesuit but na thats not gonna really happen....uh sony what are you doing? spit it out!

n4gn4gn4gn4g3410d ago

totally f'ing lame post. Has Lightbox or SONY confirmed that Starhawk has ANYTHING to do with Warhawk.

What? No?

Oh...then STFU.

(Maybe it is a remake of

How the hell does this garbage get approved...I did a test ... didn't the rest of you?


KionicWarlord2223410d ago

lol report for being lame? lol you really grind my gears.

XXXRATED3410d ago

actually the programmer from warhawk dylan jobe left incognito to work on a similar warhawk type game based in space.


this has been talked about several times on n4g

as it may not be anything to directly do with warhawk it most likely will be very similar
