Sony Japan has updated the official Afrika front page with a release date: August 28
i still don't get the point of this game anyways..what is it? a MMO? capturing animals? a sims-like in safari? What is afrika's gameplay like?
A photo shoot with specific missions (targets) You have to use time of day, location, wind (scent?) to take as close as possible pictures. Think Pokemon Snap - Pokemon - Super Bright Colors.
Pokemon Snap but with true to life locations and animals, and incredible visuals.
Release this game in Europe PLEASE
The only lenses I want to use are rifle required. Team America, F%^$ YEAH.
F*ck Yeah! This game would've been so awesome with GunCon.
I was hoping we could at least run some wildlife down with the Jeep. No dice I guess.
we can ask konami to make Guncon3 compatible with Africa. hehe...you're wild as always!!
lmfao. at leased you can run over the animals.( i hope)
As a Biologist I should just shake my head negatively... But hell yeah, the PSG1 is mine!!!
needs to have guns...
Cool,graphics in this game are phenominal ! anyone seen that screenshot with the cheetah laying on the tree branch at night? the way it's eyes lit up with the picture-snap amazing..
this looks waaaaay better than microsofts ripoff of this game "SEA LIFE SAFARI" look it up http://www.worthplaying.com... it looks like trash and worthplaying gave it a 7.4/10. Can't wait to see how they review Afrika!!
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ? This is awesome. Alot sooner than I expected. Gonna order it, and play it over here in the states. Region Free PS3 FTW!!!!!
well, thats what i am planning to do too but i am in debate if its gonna have english language !!
with text and controller functions. It shouldn't be hard since the camera is like a regular dslr camera but your pretty much screwed if it comes to anything else. The game is pretty much a pokemon snap so it shouldn't be that hard. Someone will eventually translate it in screenshots.
This game might suffer from poor sales. But since they've obviously worked on it a long time and created some serious environments they should use it to create more selling title(s). On the other hand they may do just the opposite and sell like hotcakes.
I hope this game isn't $60. I don't think it would sell very well at $60.
If you ask me I think this title could do quite well in Japan. I just think this type of game has real potential in that region. Just knowing how the Japanese are... I wouldn't be surprised if they ate this game up!
Since when do the Japanese love snapping photos all the time? ;-)
That's why I love Japan, they have good taste.
Taste? Japanese people just cannot let their cameras alone, can´t hold it without clicking it. When cameras used to run on film, Kodak just loved this guys! I remember all ads on TV in Brazil for cameras or film, there was a japanese in it! LOL
I was refering to the fact that Japanese prefer deeper and more genuine gameplay. They are not only into shooting like a lot of western gamers.
wow i didnt expect this until at least september or october, DAMN i wish the japanese version has the english language option... it would make me import a game for the first time in my almost 20 years of gaming. come on japan, buy this game in masses!! so that sony is forced to release it everywhere :)
I agree. I'm really hoping it sells well in Japan so they at least are capable of bringing it over here to the states, I'd really love to play this game.
if it came to the states, i'd buy it. i love the violence in games but it doesn't have to be in a game for the game to be fun.
since the website has english and japanese. Why tease us with something we won't be able to use?
i ll get this one even thou its in Japanese. I will google for translation if im stuck.
Shooting animals isn't funny. Even in a videogame. But with all of you instead...hmmm hell yeah!
will this game also have American text/audio? or do i need to know japanese to import it?
Could be attractive to casual gamers and first time buyers. Many a Soccer mom will consider this and LBP, good reasons for buy a Ps3 during the holidays for their little ones.
According to Gamestop it should be here in December. http://www.gamestop.com/Cat... I just doubt the date because it wouldn't make sense to release it on New Years Eve.
They usually use this date (12/31/2008) when they've no idea when the game is out, so don't get your hopes up....
