One user at the PS3 forums claims that he knew from a source in Sony Computer Entertainment that the next game from the team who made Shadow of the Colossus will be a PS3 exclusive. Furthermore, a teaser/trailer of it will be released at TGS.
No need to rush, though.
We all know the wait is more than worth it =)!
Shadow of colossus had extreme graphics of latest gen ps2....
Compare FFX to Shadow of collouss. improvments....
Its like comparing SUper Mario World to donkey kong country.....
They shud take advantage of ps3 capabilities.... andother shaodw of colussus
shadow is one of my faviorate games of all time beuatiful and genius at the same time i would be happy with a ps3 port with updated grafix on the psn but this would really make me happy, take all the time you need team ico ill wait.
yet i know i'll be buying it
anyway, i loved SOTC, though i still have couple of monsters left to kill... i am sure their next project is going to be as epic as the SOTC.
i would be happier if the game is ready... you know introduce the new game, release screen-shots, game-play videos and then release it within few weeks. q:
It was short, but it was amazing. ICO is more for adults because the pacing is slow. But I suggest that you buy ICO and give it a try. (I never played Shadow.)
tplarkin, I suggest that you should try shadow, its nothing like ICO, thats why you should try.
Team ICO is Sonys first party so there is no need to say "exclusive" we all should assume that it is.
yeah but it's nice to rub it in a bit.
actually im not, its nice to really rub this one in
that was funny! q:
ahhhh. this ought to be big. makes me wonder what other suprises are going to be revealed at tgs?
OMG i just notice this is taken from forum!? Some guy told us!? Jesus Christ!!!
Sounds like you know who... part 2. I'll give you a hint. It starts with an S
ICOteam games is another reason why i bought PS3.
Damn i enjoyed that Shadow of the Colossus.
this rumor comes from the game(s) from team ico will be well received by most of us *fingers crossed*
Ps3 exclusive is not a rumor, it's a fact. The Ico Team are a part of Sony Computer Entertainment. :P I really hope the TGS unveiling rumor is true. Can't wait.
Shadow of the Colossus was awesome, it's an all-time favorite.
Anything that the team behind it is developing is getting me very excited and I'm looking forward to it with anticipation.
These guys will not disapoint.
What they said!:)
It's good to know that teamIco its "supposedly" working into a new IP. Need more news like this one.
these guys really know how to get the most out of a console, cant wait to see what they can do with the ps3!
please, just dont let it be BS...
Fumito Ueda is my favorite! I never doubted buying PS3 just because I knew it will be home for his next game.
He's my idol! One of the finest that humanity ever had IMHO. Along with Isaac Asimov, Douglas Adams, Fila Brazillia, Bent, Beethoven, Imhotep, Iktinos, Kallikrates, Tolkien, Hesse....and many others actually! :D
And Terry Pratchett... and Lovecraft... and ...sorry got carried away with the great name calling...
TEAM ICO has already acknowledge that two new PS3 IP's are in the works. This was brought up a long time ago in an early issue of Famitsu. The only thing newsworthy is the fact (rumor) that this IP(s) will be unveiled at TGS. And no it will not be a sequel to SOTC, maybe a prequel? Please let it be a brand new genre defining, face melting game.
well then, this serves as a reminder until TGS shows up in the coming weeks
things at TGS. I think we will see more fireworks there than anywhere else. I can't wait to see what new is in the works.
Thats like saying "Rare's new 360 Exclusive"
Don't see why people disagreed with you.
Lord, please make this true! Shadow of the Colossus brought me back to videogames with a sincerity I hardly had since the games of the 90's. It was sooooooo goooood! Only goosebumps come to me thinking of what Team ICO can create this generation.
This would not be a hard rumor to believe because not to long ago Team Ico said they were working on the PS3. So it would only make sense to show there new game at TGS. Also the good thing would be if it could come out in 08 and not get over shadowed by other games. So bringing out there game out in the Second year of the PS3's life would really be big news. Plus I would hope the game sells well this time around. Even though ICO and Shadow of colossus were both really great games. They did not get the sales that you would think these games should have gotten. So I hope this is true and then I can't wait for more news about this game.
yeah i want cheesy poofs!
The original is my favorite game of all time.................next to Contra.............but yeah!
Oh my god! I'm gonna go punch a baby.
is everyone on this site completely useless, a forum is not an allowed source, and a random dude on a forum is even worse.
Oh man, I hope they do announce something. Can't wait to see what they do next.
if there were two games that i had to choose to accompany me on a deserted island, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus would be those two.
they already said that one of their *TWO projects for the PS3 would be in the same tone, atmosphere, as Ico and Colossus, and their second game would be something different (maybe a PSN title). i wish i could find the article where they state that.
god, a game like Ico or Colossus, with PS3 graphics? i think i've died and gone to heaven...
and to think, they're working on *TWO games this time!
Both of their games are in my all-time top 10. Just amazing open-ended stories that let the gamer put the pieces together. I expect just as much brilliance in their next game.
Woohoo, are we talking about prequel to shadow of the colossus or sequel of ICO cant wait!
Finally some very very good news for ps3 owners. I need some of this!!!
Ico and Shadow are such fantastic games but I have a question for you all....
Would you prefer to see a sequal to one of the above mentioned titles or a completely new original game?
Good question.. I'm kind of hoping for a sequel to ico, but given their track record for amazing creativity I think they'll probably go with a fresh start and a whole new ip.
I agree while playing SOtC i was always stopping or just walking real slow and just looking at the gorgeous views and the lands,
many times i had to check back and make sure i was playing my PS2 but damn i dont know how they did it but yeah it has some of the best graphics of the era for sure and not to mention one of the best games of all time.
Team ICO game = master piece confirmed.
Shadow of the Colossus 2 would be sweet but I know it would probably be a new IP.
Shadow of the Colossus 2!
I look forward to this game. ICO and Shadow Of Colossus are 2 of the best games I played. Originality, gameplay, graphics and sound all worked well together.
IMO if it is on par with the other games Sony will have a pretty good year 2 for the PS3.
these guys dont make games, they make art you can play
I kinda don't expect a direct sequel - a la SotC2 - but an indirect one like Shadow was to ICO (well a prequel really, but you know what I mean). Something in between the two gameplay wise and perhaps even story wise would be really interesting. Imagine if you took the general gameplay of Shadow and expanded it into more areas - lot's of exciting potential.
Yeah, Ico and SotC were pretty indicative that they don't feel held to a direct storyline. Which is nice, it opens up way more possibilities.
but on a much larger scale, like a fully populated city(s). Searching through forests and deserts would be really cool too. What I loved about the first one is that the world had every ecosystem imaginable within riding distance.
