Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has just opened the official website along with a trailer to the upcoming PS3 title, Afrika.
like the original trailer. Disappointing but I was never interested in taking pictures of virtual animals
Agreed, Still a wait and see though.
This is the most relaistic graphics i have ever seen in a game after HS .
good job SONY
and TAKE that BOTS with ur cartoon HALO3
The graphics aren't even that great, let alone wtf is the point of taking pictures?
And I am guessing you "stealth" by the animals to take pictures? They should of made this game a hunting game, not a wanna be Zoo.
Afrika= Biggest disappointment of 2007
no one still knows what it is...
the hair on that lion looks amazing!!
Appears to be an interesting game. It'd be nice to release a bit of info on it.
OMG, you a woman? Actually, I'm not a woman. I'm a broom.
the family guy comment is hilarious.
anyway i wanna know what the hell this is! I mean we've heard of it since what? 05? I think its more or less gonna be afflicted with home so ppl will be taking pictures and such. If I really have to hunt something i dont think id play it.
And the graphics are amazing if I didn't know it was a game i would question if the animals were real.
it doesn't look like the most exciting game, but could be fun with little kids or the whole family.
I think they over did the music a little though, a little to exciting and energetic for the video, kinda like indiana jones music playing during a discovery channel special (dont get me wrong, Planet Earth ROCKS!),
but you know how over the top the japanese can be
I would rather take pictures of splicers in Bioshock. LOL. Joking
it look amazing
It looks like the sort of game for the whole family to enjoy, I bet they will incorporate this game to home, sort of like taking picture in Afrika then put in on your space in Home as decoration or something.
However, graphic is pretty amazing, the hair on giraffe and lion look like real hairs and not texture paste on polygon.
where have you been?
Anyways, still clueless what the heck Afrika is about. New trailer didn't help at all.
I am sure this game will get delayed on The Delay Station 3 a few times before it gets released
if there was never a release date to begin with.
i want to know more!!!! damn u Afrika
Which is just what I wanted... NOT!
Dude didn't you hear? "Aftertouch" hunting Rhino's with crossbows. FTW!!!1 =P
because of high animalation Violences and sexualities.
Darkie it will be delayed after a release date is announced. It is Sonys destiny
Why don't they put this game to Home? Something like THE PLAYSTATION NATIONAL PARK lol or just simply a zoo.
There should be an Afrika lounge built like a small zoo, and people can view each other's photograph's or video recordings from the title. This actually reminds me of flOw in that seems like a really relaxing title. I usually play flOw after a long day at work; not for extended periods of time, but at least through one campaign (20 minutes or so).
fcuk you all!, if u think Afrika is not next gen!!!
if the game allows lions to maul you if you get too close, then i will pick this up, just for the lousy fun factor. yup, nothing like watching a computer generated person get mauled by lions. ha, SERIOUSLY doubt that'll ever happen
It looks beautiful and I hope they reveal more info in the days to come. So far it looks like you're the photographer who has to take pictures of all the animals and I'm guessing that it will be a great challenge to find em all for your collection. I predict DLC will play a big role for this (working) title.
Now I just need an update on what's happening with that "Getaway 3" game.
I think that sony is going to bring you to africa.
basically you will be able to explore the wildlife of africa.
like the exploeres on animal planet.
playing this game may teach you about the wildlife of africa,such as animal behaviors,an animal's habit....things like that.
if thats the case,i want this game.
with thise kind of graphis(and i believe it will get better),sony is basically bringing you to africa.
withought taking a plane/boat.
that would be cool.
if things turn out correctly,this game will be amazing.
i have always loved lions,but dont know much about them.this game may help me out.
maybe the sequal to this game will be "Ostralia"(austrilia )
that would be cool.
I agree but... Why not just watch animal planet? I mean this kinda stuff is for the wii right? Educational and well... While I like the playground idea. I like the mauling idea even more. Thats why I own a PS3...
this game may provide that.
also,unlike animal planet this game will make you more involved.
when watching animal planet,they usually tell you what goes on straight up.
if this game is what i think it is,unlike animal planet,it will have more exploration.
in other words you discover the things yourself,instead of being told directly.
it makes you learn better.
Realistic lions!!! mauling ppl to death in AAA graphics!!!! That's so NEX T gen game play right there boys!!!
fcuk Afrika, i'm going to play some WARHAWK.
Afrika really looks special and I can't wait until Sony says what the game will be about.
sneaking up on rhino / getting chased by elephants after tail-whiping a baby elephant / man-handling a croc / and flying by a bunch of lions riding my motorbike
i wonder if the animals mate in the wild..
I was honestly expecting something more original. :(
Reminds me of a "real" version of Pokemon Snap....... Except you're not on a set course and it's.... uh, not Pokemon... Anyway, not gonna pass judgment until I see more. I bet the world is huge and if that's the case, it might explain the less than stellar visuals. Hope to see more soon.
that is suppose to be a screensaver, which made a lot of sense to me, it would be nice to have that on my plasma to help image retention after playing mgs4 demo for a few
sony should add more titles like this to bring in the casual market.
make a MOON game.or even a game based on the planets of our solar system where you can travel space.and you can fly space shuttles,do moon walks,maintain a space station(put some SIM type stuff in there),use robots with remote.
and underwater exploration game.looking for treasure from sunken gallions,atlantis,whatever they can imagine.
since microsoft(flight simulator) and nintendo(pilot wings) won't do it,make a flight simulator game.actually more like pilot wings.
make the games cheap($19.99-$29.99) on bluray or PSN and add some real video and facts on the subjects.
and all this using sixaxis.
.......................mag lev super train..................
and I'm sure this will be a hit here. People love wildlife here and it's actauly refreshing to see something else than shooting and killing. I know my wife will be all over this, we are actauly going to the bushveld this december so whoot!
If anyone is interested in doing some volenteer work on a game farm like feeding lions and looking after baby rhinos and giraffes and experiencing the South African wildlife, go to www.afritrust.com or www.sanwild.com, Sanwild (sanctuary for wildlife) have volunteer programe for overseas students if anyone is interested.
Looking at the original trailer, the animal models seem pretty much the same but the environment doesn't look nearly as good as the original. Where is all the long grass blowing in the wind?
It would be cool if this is some sort of wildlife simulation and the animals are actually living in the world. Moving from water holes to grazing areas, having young, hunting each other. It would be spectacular to sit and watch a water hole with some gazelles drinking water and the next moment a crocodile leaps out of the water and catches one.
great, now i can relive all my fantasies of being in the lion king!
i think they should make a seperate game, where you get chased by lions, and you have to wrestle crocodiles
Home for pedophiles and Afrika for beastiality lovers
At least we could have played as a Cheetah or something?
Need more info
Pick this up for my girl, Or my Son, he would def. love this.
Those are some amazing looking animals. I'm sure everyone here is wondering what type of physics are involved when you shoot the hell out of them in 1080p. You know you want to.
