Ironstar: The PS3 exclusive title Ape Escape was intended to be released a while back in 2006, but was eventually canned due to "complications".
That sounded like fun. I really hope they make a strong platformer with their new one
Indeed.. Unbelievable how things can change.. From a 2006 relase till now.. Because of other unimaginative greedy minds..
Im sure it was scrapped why not just name the company? Im sure no one cares its been delayed but you dont need to make up excuses.
Dr. Richard Marks uploaded many of his Eyetoy videos, including motion controllers and the technology that Microsoft is now using for Natal. In fact Ricochet is just an upgraded version of Richard Marks' breakout game. Then now it turns out that Nintendo could have possibly used Ape Escape's leaked concepts?
Super Mario Galaxy...so thats where it came from...wow
than any Mario Galaxy game.
Ape Escape FTW!!!
Move into that game along with 3D is going to be so much WIN. Anyone who played this at PSone knows that the game was indeed perfect for motion controllers its going to be Sony "trap card" and will help greatly to push Move to the consumers.
I must admit that this sounds like a GREAT idea. And I'm usually an anti-motion sensing fanboy. Just like the first Ape Escape used the analog sticks in creative ways, this one could use the PSWand. It would be the perfect game for this
Totally True Pal, Ape Escape + Move = Day One For Me, This Franchise is Awesome, with Move + 3D will be Completely Epic....
AAAARRRRRRRGH!! Do you know how angry this makes me, F-U! Nintendo. The original concept sounded like a true AE3 sequel but now we're not going to get that because of Stealtendo.
Doesnt take much for you to believe anything does it? Yeah Nintendo ripped this off and went back in time with it. Sony fans are once again showing why the gaming community looks down on them as fools.
that you shouldn't look down on Sony fans as fools. You should look down on fools as fools, whatever their entertainment vendor of choice be. Large and established brands acquire fan bases that consist of many and varied people. I'm sure that you are a reasonable and rational person and yet I can only guess as to your preferred vendor (your comment making it easier to eliminate one). It is in fact not the vendor with which I identify my current preference (due to past experiences that have always been positive). Does this mean I must look upon you as a fool? Because you have either; a machine that has a history of failure? A machine that is produced by a company who is currently not diverse enough to satisfy their old and loyal customers? Or a machine that is not being allowed to thrive on it's own merits due to the popularity of console gaming? No, it doesn't, and I think my above reasons show that no one vendor or platform is perfect. Banter and debate is both stimulating and necessary for forward movement, but blind name calling, stereotyping and a blinkered view are not. Unless of course you don't like your bubbles ;)
i actually have never played an ape escape game and ive been gaming since the SNES and sega genesis era
The original is a classic.
Then there is no decency in the game industry anymore.
what is the ape escape gameplay like?
The PS1 Ape Escape was kinda like Super Mario 64 but you had to catch monkeys with a net. You had all kinds of awesome gadgets to stun the monkeys, detect stuff, fly, kill ennemies, etc... and they were all controlled with the analog sticks in cool ways It was an awesome game
thanks for the info. i will put this on my long list of games to get when it releases +++bubbles for you
Platformers with level layouts sort of like Mario 64, with Apes to capture with various gadgets controlled with one of the analogue sticks. In the original you jump through different time zones and try to recapture the monkeys, but the monkeys can have AI so you have to sneak up on them, there are also several different behaviour apes judging by the helmet they wear. The game is full of super happy tunes and with a great Pokemon anime look to it. Once you capture enough apes on a level you can go to the next and every few levels you get given a new gadget of which you can backtrack with and collect any 'bonus' apes that weren't required in the first playthrough of a level.
It says that it should have released in '06, Galaxy was released Nov. '07, so why'd they scrap it if it was almost finished?
not sure but sony always want to be the ones that has something that the competition does not even if they were the first ones to do so
Because their idea, that they wanted to be the first to do was leaked fully in 05. Nintendo decided to go fir it with Galaxy, so AE PS3 was canned.
Ape escape,another exclusive OMFG,Sony what are you MEGA BEAST???
I'm sure Super Mario Galaxy was well into development, and definitely well past the concept stage, when the concept of this "Ape Escape" game leaked.
Even this Ape Escape concept has been stolen...from another popular plartforming franchise titled Ratchet and Clank...Here's come proof to douse flames... http://kotaku.com/307411/ma...
Yeah Insomniac invented the round planet.. Guess it would be too much to ask what parts of Mario games R&C stole. I mean if they get round planets why cant we say the entire franchise is a rip off because Mario was the first platformer and R&C stole that? I see Sony is once again trying to take credit for something they didnt do.. Like that 4 year old youtube video that took 2 years to show up online and to Sony fans it was proof that Sony invented motion gaming..
They heavily imply that Super Mario Galaxy stole Ape Escapes concept! (Then again, that concept was already used in Ratchet and Clank before that)
I'm not sure if they really stole it. It's possible that they just came up with the same idea. It's not like spherical planets are something completely out of the ordinary
Lol. so the plumer ripped off both ape and furball. interesting.
Honestly, I don't know how mario galaxy got away with it. The game is imo the most overrated game this generation. =/
the way of the future.
Rescuing someone who was kidnapped? Distinctly different worlds? Defeating bosses? Didn't I play this game in 1987? Seriously, this wasn't an original concept at all.
