GameSpot: Motorstorm Apocalypse Hands-on

GameSpot writes: "In the five years since MotorStorm's memorable unveiling at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo, the series has gone on to become Sony's flagship arcade racing series on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. So it was perhaps no surprise that MotorStorm Apocalypse, the third game on the PS3, was announced just in time for this year's E3. The game will be a massive detour for the series, as it takes place in an urban environment--one that has been ravaged by a cataclysmic earthquake. We met with developer Evolution Studios in London to find out more, as well as to tackle the new scorched-earth environment for ourselves".

OMG Sony what the fuck do you still have to show i mean unveiling 4 titles already, i seriously wonder what's gonna come out of the high hat of sony cause im drawing blanks right now.

Imperator3113d ago

Well, Sony, unlike the others, is known for having actual games. You know, exclusives. True exclusives. you can be sure that there will be some awesome surprises at Sony's E3.

"Well, Sony, unlike the others, is known for having actual games."

Are you implying that multiplatform games aren't actual games?

boysenberry3113d ago


Exclusives > Multi-platform games, period.

Lemme just copy and paste here..

- "Sony, unlike the others, is known for having actual games."

(then he explains what he means)

- "You know, exclusives. True exclusives."

Highlighting & making your largest announcements at E3 Multiplatform games is meaningless. Its a gaming conference to announce to your audience the unique experience they can attain with purchasing your hardware.

I know 99% of the 360 owners thinks 2 = 1, but Multiplatform games at a place to announce exclusive content, isn't an actual big E3 news. Sure it makes headlines to borrow sony associated franchises, but thats because Sony is the only player when it comes to developing great software.

I'm pumped sky high already to see these games being shown @ E3! at least we knew what to be expected from Sony Press conference and I think, with all the games they have, this is going to be one hell of a show for Sony!

SOAD3113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

You are wrong. There are many games out there that are multiplatform and they rival PS3 and 360 exclusives.

Bioshock > many exclusives.
Assassin's Creed 2 > many exclusives
RDR > many exclusives.

Secondly, you guys might criticize Microsoft for their decision to highlight multiplatform games, but third party developers appreciate the publicity that Microsoft gives them.

It's one of the reasons why third party developers like Microsoft so much.

And to no great surprise, every person who responded to my first comment is a known PS3 fanboys (except maybe badz), quick to defend stupid posts by their stupid comrades.

Remember, it's Sony - 21 First party studios. More than MS and Nintendo combined. Plus a buttload of already known exclusives, a number of unknown titles, 4 big surprises that have been strongly hinted, 3D, and a motion control system that actually works.

"its development cycle could eventually end up totaling three years"

Omg what are they making :o? a beast ?

"There will also be a multiplayer game mode creator"


beavis4play3113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

as i've said in other threads the previous weeks....
if they bring:
-in-game footage of agent
-at least announce a new syphon filter
-show us what naughty dog is up to
-show resistance 3 footage
-show last guardian footage
-what about the new dave jaffe game? maybe they'll at least tell us what it is
-plus all the stuff morgan posted above me

and that's all possible ps3 exclusive content! and i'm not even considering any surprise new exclusives ....which you have to figure they have a couple.

i figure sony will be fully loaded for the show.

MajestieBeast3113d ago

I didnt mean it in any bad way im just drawing blanks on what they have after showing 4 big titles already that could alone make them have a succesful E3.

jalen2473113d ago

They have unveiled more than 4 titles...

Socom 4
GOW: Ghost of Sparta (PSP)
Killzone 3
Infamous 2
Motorstorm: Apocalypse

"with the military using high-tech weaponry to attack you from both the ground and the air, while the crazies are rather more low-tech, using wrecking balls and Molotov cocktails to try to displace you." - split seconds?!

...and they've been working on this since before PR was even released! that's dedication!

Ravage273113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

most of the sequels announced were more or less expected to show up in E3 (ok maybe not LBP2), so no harm done in releasing early previews imo.

I think Sony is saving new IPs for surprise announcements..

Ivan Drago IV3113d ago

It only does...
E3 victories before E3 even starts.

TBH, I absolutely hate racing games in general but MotorStorm impresses me and it looks like it'll be the first racing game I buy in my life.
