SystemLink PlayStation, Tuesday 26th July: "From the looks of it, SystemLink can reveal that not only are EA publishing a brand new first-person shooter exclusively for the PS3, they're also revealing a brand new studio."
Hot damn. This, as well as Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3? Take my money. All of it. (But give me Mirror's Edge 2 soon, please)
Yup, it's exciting news. EA make a very, very good FPS when they put their mind to it, so hopefully this turns out to be something decent. I do agree with you about Mirror's Edge 2, though. Loved the first.
Black troll lol
@I_find_it_funny - I was also thinking of the same thing. Black Troll Studios. haha!
This a wind up. BLACK "TROLL" STUDIO'S

These trolls, also known as demon trolls, are among the largest of their kind, most over 13 feet tall. These creatures look like oversized trolls with smooth black skin, sparse hair, green eyes with an evil gleam, and red horns jutting out from their forehead. Despite this, black trolls have an oddly humanlike physique. Black trolls speak Giant and Abyssal. COMBAT Black trolls fight in the same manner as normal trolls, but have a much wider array of abilities, and a notably higher intelligence, which they use to their utmost advantage. They like to use their chain lightning in the middle of a melee, as their immunity to electricity protects them well. Black trolls are considered as giant-type monsters when attacked by dwarves, gnomes, and rangers. Rock Throwing (Ex): Black trolls have learned to throw rocks in the same manner as giants, receiving a +1 racial bonus to attack rolls when throwing rocks. Black trolls can hurl rocks weighing 40 to 50 pounds each (Small objects) up to a range of 5 increments. Chain Lightning (Su): Three times per day, a black troll can unleash a chain lightning attack. This ability is as the spell cast by a 6th-level sorcerer (save DC 16). Spell-Like Abilities: At will - darkness, dispel magic, pyrotechnics, telekinesis (5,000 pound weight limit), and teleport without error. These abilities are as the spells cast by a 9th-level sorcerer (save DC 10 + spell level). Summon Monsters (Sp): Once per day a black troll can attempt to summon 1d2 normal trolls, 1d4 dretch demons, or another 1d2 black trolls with a 50% chance of success. Regeneration (Ex): Fire, acid, and holy and blessed weapons of at least +2 enchantment deal normal damage to a black troll
What the 0_o @topic I bet they LOLd when the name was thought up so they chose it. I know that I would do the same. I would name my game company either Awesome Sauce games or We Love Bacon studios
Supposing this studio is real, I honestly can't see why EA would publish a PS3 exclusive at this point in the consoles cycle.
because it's a Playstation Move FPS
Fair point mate, I guess that would make sense.
I would love it to be a ps3 exclusive but I highly doubt EA or any third party will actually do an exclusive at the moment. maybe they just hired that person to work on the ps3 version. I guess it will be a shock announcement if it is true. we seem to be missing them shock announcements lately at every show.
It could be a timed-exclusive like with Mass Effect 2 on the 360!!!
This is a joke the studios name is "Black Troll" come on now why would you make a studio with that name
HAHAAHAH what kind of name is "black troll" studios? wtf?
i was saying that same thing when I saw the name. what a name to have huh
Interesting.. I wonder what could it be
Black troll O_o
ANOTHER FPS???? OHH NOOOOOO WEEE ARE DOOOMMDDDDDDDDD obvious black troll is obvious
black troll, lol.
Why does it have to be a BLACK troll? Why can't it be just a Troll? /sarcasm. This is interesting news, I'm excited to find out if it's legit and what the game will be.
... is it Black?
Exclusive? Possibly a Move game.
Black troll.. I would be shocked if this isn't a joke.
The proof looks solid. A resume, a domain, a website; if it is a hoax, is one of the oddest, most complex hoaxes in video games.
Yeah. And SystemLink have a good reputation for revealing early, supposedly hidden info on LinkedIn about games in development. This is looking very likely.
Where does it say exclusive? And where is the rest of this "resume"? Skeptical hippo is skeptical
black troll studios huh?
I'm amazed word of this hasn't trickled out before now.
Wow even more proof that PS3 have alot more too offer...
The guy that wanted to remain anonymous had a Linkedin profile where he currently worked, that was Black Troll Studios. He has since modified the profile because he must have recently got hired by 343 Industries, the MS Halo studio. Here is his profile and his name: http://www.linkedin.com/in/... Here is his profile before he hired on with 343 and it says his current position is with Black Troll Studios: http://webcache.googleuserc... The domain registrar for http://www.blacktrollstudio... is EA.
It seems like sony has bunch of unannounced exclusives.
great, another FPS /s
Ohh yeah! I can't wait another shooter to join the great billionth league of brain dead reticule control (sarcasm).
Exclusive FPS for PS3 from EA? This is awesome!
