A few previously unheard-of games appeared in Sony's PlayStation 3 trailer montage at Kaz Hirai's Tokyo Game Show keynote address earlier today. IGN did a little digging and managed to gather a few hints on the nature of these titles.
aqua, afrika and flower? im guessing its was nature theme day when these game were thought up. the music to aqua seems nice to relax to though. but what the hell is flower? please dont tell me that you have to pay for that game. well i guess this is the area where sony always wins - reaching out to a different demographic
Aqua and Flower are NONgames, like screensaver or like stuff.
nice video of Aqua. I'd like to see that on my HDTV. Flower sounds good, too.
oh thanks lumbo, i was kinda wondering. i see how stupid i look when it says non games in the title lol
But what is "flower"? I get Aqua which BTW means "Water" in Italian and probably in Latin too.
Flower is the Flow sequel and I guess it some sort of six-axis interaction to promote the growth and blossom lifecycle of a flower. Flow was a very relaxing and unique creation but fairly short lived although priced accordingly because of it. I can see the same thing here and would welcome any company that embraces new ideas and artistic creations. It's a good thing that most true fans of games in general appreciate the fact there is more to games than headshots - don't they?
gaming is all about fragging and teabagging (jokes, i hate the fact that i have to mention that i'm joking but people takes everything seriously on this site)
ya I loved flOw and flower has me very intrigued. I wonder what the interaction level will be. Anyway I cant wait @5.1 that was pretty funny :)
yea thats how i feel Im going to teabag this screen saver when i get it. If i dont like it on my TV i will then frag it with the delelte button...
so wait these 2 things are screensavers for the ps3?
they are not. I'm uncertain what flower is but its made by that game company. They have a contract for 3 games. Aqua is a PlayStation Eye title if I'm not mistaking.
I think the playstation eye title is Aquavita or something like that, Aqua is just a working title according to the vid so it will end up being called something else. I can't see it being much more than an advanced interactive screensaver. Save with flOwer.
I posted this in the montage. Any guesses on if Aqua and Flower are gonna be the $d simulators sony has been talking about. Apparently the ocean is effected by what you do... I think I read that right at IGN. Just curious what you guys think. The way the grass moves in flower brought a feeling of OMFG. Looks great. I know Aqua wont be the new Echo... I love Echo on Dreamcast. Hard as hell but oh so pretty...
