Sony will announce a new PS3 game today at 8:00pm (GMT)

PS3Hype writes: 'Today Dave Epke (President Sony Computer Entertainment Benelux) announced on is twitter that Sony will reveal a new PlayStation 3 game at 20:00pm. Would that mean that Sony is going to reveal 2 games in one week?'

[From N4G editor] We will update this post when the title is revealed! (PS3)

Update The site display's 21:00 as the time of the reveal. This is the Dutch Time. It's GTM+1. So in general the English time is 20:00.
Sorry for the title, it needs to be 8pm ;)
[UPDATE-2]: A New SOCOM title created by Zipper Interactive, check the link for the first screenshots and come back tomorrow for the first trailer!

Website says 21:00 (9pm) but which time zone? I'm guessing CET judging by the site, which puts the announcement in another 4.5 hours or so

Edit: Chris
Don't quote me on that...I'm just using relationship to the website location...It's the only guess I have

I'll find out with my morning cup of tea tomorrow :) Seriously, this gen has been all about the hype; I think I'm immune to it at this point.

Edit: 4.5 hours! Nice find!

I'm hoping for Starhawk 256 with mech suits, lots of armored vehicles, capital ships, frigates, fighters, bombers, etc or something completely different but completely incredible.

The PS2 is completing 10 years today and a new sequel is being announced for the PS3 today. Coincidence?

@ fedex...

I was thinking the same thing. I'm guessing it's a flagship PS2 title, perfect time to announce it.

@ThanatosDMC & TheHater

256 is asking too much, but 128Players + Great Graphics = Epic

Is this the same GTTV reveal or different one? Any Dutch speakers here?
mabreu  +   1853d ago
I hope it's not something small like a PSN game.
Maybe its a FPS title like Killzone 3 or Resistance 3 because they can compete with the release of Halo:Reach.

I'm hoping for Twisted Metal. C'mon David Jaffe!!

Babylonian  +   1853d ago
Hey guys, I'm from Holland
The site is reporting from a Twitter account of Dave Epke where he is saying: "Around 21:00 (Dutch time, GMT+1) a new PS3 game will be announced, no right guesses so far"

So that means that what we have been speculating the last days is not what is going to be announced.

Funny thing is I know Dave Epke, he used to be one of my mentors during my internship at SCE Benelux. Very nice and funny guy.

Double07  +   1852d ago
Its not Killzone 3, Motorstorm 3 or Starhawk apparently


Second post on the page, then Geoff says further down that its not MS3 or Starhawk =/

Quotes: "Guys, I know you love to whip yourselves into a frenzy but no, we are not showing you a Killzone 3 trailer tonight on GTTV. The trailer we're showing is definitely a big frontline title for PS3 though. I believe some info will be online in advance of the trailer."

And "Not Starhawk or MS3! Tune in and see."

Im thinking Syphon Filter for sure now.

I think it'll be a sequel to a popular PS2 game seeing as how PS2 is 10 years old today.

twisted metal back 2/ xbox 360 fanboys side thought
what i think on the matter of 360 fanboys
tell you i have been gaming for 25 years, let me say this, i seen almost every gaming war debate there ever was. i am glad to say this, this gaming gen have more haters then any other gen i ever seen. Ya, xbox fanboys are the worst i ever seen. not only that most of you are stupid beyond belief. i seen so many articles on here, and comments that show how MS brain wash yah into becoming a "cheerleader puppet" and whatever papa ms say you all agree. god forbid if even try to argue facts and logic with a xbox360 fanboy. it's like talking to a breakwall. or an artistic child( sorry it's true) i read the comments on n4g, and i say to myself man there's alot of brain damage people on this site.

no i am not a fanboy of the ps3, more like a fanboy of great games. no matter what console it's on. later and out from a gaming vet.

wut? GG is part of SCEE

joydestroy  +   1853d ago
uhm, which is part of Europe...and the acquisition i'm seeing happened back in '05. http://www.gamershell.com/c...

regardless, it's not KZ3. it's most likely Starhawk.

@rawd no worries :)

We thought it was MS3 here at the tilt, but since have been shown new footage of Starhawk and we are about 80% positive it's Starhawk now. The MS3 trailer will be shown off at GDC next week. It looks amazing, by the way.

As for Starhawk, what we've seen, Starwars has little on it. It looks intense and epic.
Pennywise  +   1853d ago
How's the graphics compared to Warhawk?
joydestroy  +   1853d ago
i'd be on board for this!
nogolis  +   1853d ago
It looks better than Warhawk. Things are more streamline now. The characters are more scaled. Much thinner and lankier. The textures have improved a great deal. A tad under Uncharted 2's maybe... Somewhere in between.

The trailer we've seen has a central planet where a battle is taking place, a black ship with red boosters lifts off and jumps into space, one movement and animation, and engauges in a dogfight with a massive fleet of other ships. Way more than 32, believe me. More like 100, but don't quote me on the exaxt number.

One ship lands on the deck of a larger battleship thing and a guy jumps out. He has a laser rifle. He shoots out a node on the side of the ship. Ship starts rocking. At this time a massive amount of other ships storm the larger battle ship and start hitting it in sweeps. Guy jumps off the ship's landing and rocket boost away as the ship explodes.

Trailer ends.

It looks intense. Massive battles here. Massive.

Benefit of the doubt is being extended here. I am excited for Warhawks sequel... just hope they really aren't naming it Starhawk.

I hope its at least 128 players. MAG has me spoiled.
joydestroy  +   1853d ago
can you like...capture this vid footage or something? lol i just wanna see it now! :)
jack_burt0n  +   1853d ago

So its engine rendered? wow what about the ms3 trailer is that using the game engine?
spunnups  +   1853d ago
Sounds like Warhawk has been using MAGs tech. ROD!!
DaTruth  +   1853d ago
Sounds a lot like Battlefront with more people. I liked Battlefront, but never had online with the PS2. Was the first game I played online on my PS3. Hence the name Jedipimmmp which I didn't think I would get stuck with forever!

Edit:I would have settled for Warhawk with destruction! Imagine by the time the match ends, the entire place is destroyed and the bunkers can only be destroyed by the bunker buster remote missiles, but they can be shot down. No more hiding from the tank in a house; BOOM!!! The walls come down!

nogolis  +   1852d ago
Please remember i never said it'd be either of the two. And, to be 100% honest, I didn't even know Socam 4 was in the works. It hit all of us out of left field too. We aren't shown everything... We don't know everything. We know what we get in our e-mails and through phone conversations and such. We attend these events and talk to people and try to keep in touch with them in order to keep a steady flow of info flowing but in no way do we know everything that goes down.

I told you what the Starhawk trailer consisted of "generally" and I told you in great detail what the MS3 trailer will be like. Remember those and then get back to me. You will see both very, very soon. Probably within the next week and a half. GDC is around the corner.

Trust me.

You really think after all the hardship that Sucker Punch went through to step away from cartoon style titles that they are just going to launch straight back into Sly? They will build upon the current momentum that they have achieved with inFamous, inFamous 2 is next.

1. The game will be announced at 8pm and a trailer on GTTV.

2. It is two different games being announced.

sony can find anther developers to make HS2, because sony own the HS project.
