Team ICO Gamers contact Official PlayStation Magazine (UK) and get confirmation that Team ICO is working on a PlayStation 3 game that, according to a Sony executive, is set in the same universe of that in ICO and Shadow of the Colossus.
I never played ICO but loved SOTC. Great Game.
Razzy, really, do yourself a favor, its verry cheap now, pick up ICO.
was one of the greatest games to play and greatest reviewed games that no one actually played. This was my first gem of a game on the PS2.
Totaly agree with sticky doja!
I remember seeing it in a shop, had some extra money and picked it as a random-pick-in-a-shop game, without even reading anything about it beforehand.
When I came home, I was literally blown away.
Alright....I'm convinced. I'm going to try and find ICO this weekend. Thanks guys.
Glad its gunna be like ICO and SotC and not a completely different game. It should be an awesome game and a guarenteed hit for thr PS3.
ps3 has a lot of great looking games coming up on the horizon. War devil is still goin we know infamous is coming next yr, GT, killzone, metal gear solid, Hopefully TEAM ICO project, maybe final fantasy may get in there and tons and tons of games we havnt heard of or still shrouded in mystery(afrika, eight days, heavy rain).
Secretly i am slightly dissapointed that TEAM ICO isnt doing a new title. They did ICO and it was excellent, Shadow of COllosus was also excellent i had no doubt their next title would have been equally excellent. The thing i liked most about ICO and shadow was the originallity would be a shame not to come up with some new ideas. Hopefully if they do shadow of collosus 2 they add regular enemies into the mix i felt shadow of collosus was too short because of only boss battles
I think the game was perfect. If there were other anemies in SOTC, it could have ruined the feeling of solitude and "forbidden land". I really liked it just the way it was.
what are you talking about? ICO is the name of the team
noobs.... gotta love them. nice try tho dude, ill throw you a bubble just for making me laugh.
^ Well ICO was the team's first game, hence the name "Team ICO."
ICO was also a game.
wow, this news has brigtened my day. shadow was perhaps one of the greatest games i have ever played. i would recommend it to anyone. if ever there was a game that can make you emotional, its this :)
...ICO and Shadow were two of my all time favorite ps2 games. Everything this team makes is gold. should be interesting to say the least...
TEAM ICO and SUCKERPUNCH are secretly the best DEVS on EARTH.
tell a friend. lol.
is this coming.
although the way release dates are lately they might as well say its coming out on friday! ah but its been delayed lol.
cant wait to see what these guys can do with the hardware, what the managed on the ps2 was amazing. Team ICO are a very under rated development house!
they MAXED the ps2 out w/ SOTC.
what they do on ps3 WILL definitly be a SHOWCASE for the console.
hope for 08.
even if it`s 09 it cool, early 09.
but, lets hope for 08.
yes, yes, yes (yes is a weird word) anyway, yes, yes, yes!
but this new game from them wont be seen till 09 IMO
I can see Shadow being shown at next years TGS08 but im not holding my breath.
Does Sony own these guys because it says according to a Sony Executive. I dont like hearing those words right now
Yup, Team ICO is part of Sony's JAPAN Studio.
OMG, im so happy.
wow, i gotta get this PS2 game to see what all the hype is about. I still havent played shadow of the colossis
shadow of the colossus may be the most underrated game of all time. Its not without its shortcomings but you wont say youve played anything else like it. That horse has to be one of the best animated animals ever.
both games by Team Ico were cruelly underrated. Along with SotC, Ico was getting rave reviews across the board, but sadly it had poor sales, especially in the US. It's a real shame bro's. That game is amazing.
by next year, I wouldnt be surprised if Sony dominates the console market again
For the sequel to either one of those games. Both ICO and SotC were day one purchases for me.
then i take it that it's the artistic style they are going after.
Something on that scale of shear beauty and visually aesthetic, is something i can only dream of i hope we see it at this october even they are having. because PS3 can really use some help from the mighty team ICO. an awesome developer.
i have STOC but ICO is hard to find
EB GAMES for $7.99 CDN.
it's well worth it. Ico is a game that should definitely be in your collection, especially if you liked SotC.
More games... Me like it!^^
Ths is too emotional for me, I must leave this thread...lol.
I bought my PS3 in anticipation of Fumito Ueda's next game.
ZOMG "set in the same universe of that in ICO and Shadow of the Colossus." awesome news. Seriously awesome. I don't know what to say... did I mention it's awesome.
I don't have a ps2 so i never got a chance to play these games. They look really cool though. What is the whole premise of them? Is it like a open ended rpg or something? I don't have a ps3 but there are a few games coming out in 08 that could sway me, this being one. If the price is right of course. That and all this fanboy flaming kinda turns me off.
i really dont know how to describe them to be honest.
if epic was a genre of game, these games would be in it.
shadow is set in a massive forbidden land. the only thing that populates it is collosi, the odd lizard and eagle.
you travel around on your steed taking down these immense, awe inspiring (to say the least) collosi.
the only way i could describe ICO is your in a great big castle, and its an adventure game, kind of. you travel around with a girl you find.
you should honestly try to play this game.
guys can anyone help me describe the games any better?
Sounds cool. I suppose i could always borrow my friends old ps2 that is collecting dust and buy the game for 10 bucks or something. If its really that good. Which is better?
hmmm thats a tough one. i personally think shadow is better, but its down to preference really.
dangit, hit agree when I meant to hit "reply"
Anyways, Shadows is by FAR my favorite of the two, although ICO is great in its own right. Shadow is just so massive and beautiful though. And Agro is by far the best side-kick a developer's ever thrown into a game.
Here's a runthrough of my favorite colossus; #14. If you can make it through the guy's commentary, you can see just how epic in scale the game is, even though this is the tiniest boss (most of them are basically the size of sky-scrapers). 18 and 19 combine for the full fight.
You know, if you just bought a PS3 like you might end up doing someday anyway you could just play these games on it. I picked up Shadow AFTER I bought my PS3 to see if it was any good (I honestly didn't care for ICO) and it is in my top ten of all time now. It really is that good of a game.
Never has a game made you feel so insignicant in comparison to the bosses. Seeing some of them and realizing you have to kill them literally seem almost impossible at the beginning. That's why everyone loves this game. It doesn't really fit into any genre and what it does it does well. The soundtrack is also amazing.
bring it team ico. we WILL buy it. I played both of their first games twice.
damn i bought ICO not knowing what the hell it was about....but i was sure into that game(still got the original game :)) and when i heard of SOTC i knew i had to get it ......this next game (not knowing details yet) is a day one purchase for me.
Could you imagine a co-op SOTC 2? With even larger colossi, where you have to work in teams to bring him down? THAT would be some kind of awesome.
like a hot dog.
Anything like SOTC with PS3 graphics would be amazing, I'm sure that if anyone can find a way to make it original it will be Team ICO.
By the way, my favorite boss was the one in the picture of this story. You just feel like a badass when you're jumping off your horse and climbing up the back of this thing to stab it while it's flying through the air. That was insane.
I read somewhere that SotC was going to have co-op, but they decided not to use it. I would have loved that idea though.
Nico (possibly with multiplay) tech demo
Ahh, what could have been. But evidence that a game sans multiplayer can still be one of the greatest ever produced. I have faith in Team ICO that they made what they felt was the best decision at the time. Whether it was cost or just gameplay, I'm sure they left it out for a reason, because that looked like it would have been too cool not to develop.
is one of the greatest gaming experiences you can ever have. I played it both alone and with my friends around, and when you're by yourself and its just you, Agro, and a Colossi it's ridiculously epic. You MUST play this game.
Also whatever Team ICO has next up their sleeves is a First day buy for me without a doubt.
Everywhere I go, there's no ICO for sale...
Ebay is guaranteed to have it bro. You may want to also check pre-owned game stores such as Gamestop.
The game is even on a cd-r format.
Sony should put that game in the PSN store for sure so people who cant find it buy it and play this master piece.
one of the best games of all time.
I'm still waiting on hard-to-find PS1 titles. Where's my Vib Ribbon, Silent Bomber, Bust a Groove, Tomba! 2, Rival Schools, Brave Fencer Musashi, and Ehrgeiz? Hmmmm Sony?
