Irish singer-songwriter Eabha McMahon, better known by her stage name AVA, wrote a song for a "big" PlayStation remake to be announced in December, she said in an interview with Irish radio program
Hope not a remake but a new Sly.. Siphon Filter would be sweet.. won’t say MGS it’s not a Sony licence
Keep in mind this is a singer, not someone in games. Possibly she's an exception and maybe she follows games, but typically people like that have only a passing knowledge of games and might easily call something a "PlayStation game" without meaning it's a first party game.
The Legend of Dragoon 🤞🏻
December could mean a Game Awards reveal with a musical performance by her. But what could it be that lends itself to having a theme tune?
https://youtu.be/6nZvWkngru... Her she is singing. Now what game would this type of melody vibe with. It's gotta be either MGS or Silent Hill. I honestly can't imagine any other IP this kind of Ballad would have with. Any thoughts?
@Eonjay Her style would work extremely well with RPGs, actually.
👀 folklore remake, set in Ireland from what I remember 🤷♂️
I am missing something here or is a song sung in Irish an important part of the Sly Cooper franchise? Or are people just not reading the quotes from the article?
Maybe expanding on "The Best Is Yet To Come"? A small portion of that song even plays at the very beginning of MGS1 as Snake reaches the inside of the base and climbs out of the water (one of my earliest memories). It would be part of everyone's first impressions. It's funny because I'm Irish and the song is obviously Irish, but I don't think I realised it when I was 5/6.
Ohhh good shout! seems quite reasonable that's what it could be. I loved that intro.
I was thinking of that too. Fingers crossed.
That or folklore...set in ireland
Could be anything or nothing at all.
It's a playstation exclusive being announced at the game awards(or sometime in December) at least. More to go with here that most things getting speculated on...
I still think it could be anything, even twisted metal. What if the rights for every song isn't available for the originals or they are doing something completely different and want an authentic Irish song for a level? It can be anything that's what I meant. Everyone pointing at MGS is probably wrong.
....*Aliens*...I mean Bloodborne....hopefully. I mean, I wish it was. Remembering how big the music youtube video was for the Demon's Souls remake, and how Bluepoint loves to focus on epic music and scores, I'ma hope this is a Bloodborne remake in the works by Bluepoint. Yes, I know they are working on a new IP or something, but I can dream! Imagine how awesome a Bloodborne or Legend of Dragoon remake would be. Honestly, I'd also love a MGS3 remake. I've played 1 enough....though it is an epic goat.
They're working on "original content" as opposed to a remake. Doesn't necessarily mean it's a brand new IP! So Bloodborne is potentially on the cards.
But I thought souls games had orchestrated music
I think the trailers had it's own song with lyrics. But Bloodborne 2 is not coming from Bluepoint.
Why remake a game that literally does not need it? Waste of talent and resources on something that would need a simple remaster at best.
It’s most likely sly. I feel it
That's so strange because for me it's clearly Metal Gear.
Hopefully not because 'The Best is Yet to Come' doesn't need remaking
Her voice best fits Legend of Dragoon but I guess we'll have to wait and see.
I really hope it's Legend of Dragoon.
Would make sense after the tremendous success of FF7 Remake.
LoD's anniversary IS in December...
I hope, but I doubt.
Wow, these remakes are about to take over this generation
"we believe in generations" Here's another remake
So a remake can't show a generational leap? Have you seen FFVII Remake?
Tried to make a witty comment but instead it just sounded dumb. This is a remake not a remastered. That quote has nothing to do with it 🤦🏽🤦 27997;🤦🏽 Lol. Please try better
@DJstotty You know you really come off as an completely uninformed idiot right? Something like 1/3 or PS4 players were NEW to the Playstation systems. Pretty sure you guys also suggest 'only' 10-20 million played certain games on Playstation 4. So that leaves 90 million people who haven't played any given blockbuster AND all the people new to the system too then add in potential PC gamers if there's a port down the line so 🤔 maybe just don't play or buy it?! Which is weird because you guys are all so okay when other games get ported to Xbox? Like Yakuza? Kingdom Hearts? And a bunch of other games ported to Gamepass is no different than Remakes or Remasters really.
So your happy with remake's for a "new generation" instead of new ip's? Xbox gets slated night and day, for not having new ip's, or exclusives, but when Sony does it for the PS4/PS5, because bookmark this comment, this game will be on PS4, it get's a green light and it is acceptable and will show "generational leaps" when it will be multiplatform? Not uninformed in the slightest, can just see companies cashing in on remake's left right and centre, regardless of platform. For clarification of my 2 statements :- "We belivieve in generations" was a statement made by Sony, for not supporting PS4 for new IP's/sequels after PS5 launch, which they backtracked on, and now all 1st party from now, probably for another year, will support PS4 - not misinformed, a fact. "Here's another remake" was due to the fact, again, not misinformed, but fact, that this generation companies are cashing in on the "remake" instead of creating sequels/New IP's. I mentioned no platforms, everyone just knee jerked and tried to defend/deny/deflect, and spin.
@Aphelion82 "unlike the Xbox where everything is supposed to be compatible with previous generation." And i get called misinformed?
Plenty of other shit to play. Some people like the remakes and remasters and that’s fine
Oh i get that, i like the remakes more over the remasters, but too many companies are cashing in, across the board. But the people on here making out this game will show "generational leaps" and talking like it will be the next TLOU, need to check themselves.
Bluepoint said something similar about debuting their next game in coming months. Im guessing PlayStation showcase December confirmed maybe
Try Game Awards
I wouldn't rule out a playstation experience either like it happened in the past. The big ones were scheduled in December.
Yes, another remake...The game industry has finally reached the age to where it can rehash with little consequence.
The thing is, many people love older games and want to play them again, but quality of life features, graphics, and access to the old game are all obstacles. If a company can lovingly remake an old game, they can potentially cut a lot of time off development since the groundwork is already laid, and still put out a AAA game. It really works out well for everyone except the people who perhaps have no nostalgia for the old games, or even resent nostalgia in general.
Or they never played the original and would like to play it.
It is one thing to remake a game every once in awhile after a deep call for a game to return. But completely different to remake games just a few years old and then simply having more focus on remakes than new games in a new generation system focus. It's like... 'what is the next remake that is going to be announced next?'. Similar to when old movies and TV shows were being remade in record levels.
They should be cheaper then, but they are not and usually stuffed with multiple editions. What they do is charge for a game as it is a new IP and then sell it with all of the current day baggage. Hence, "no consequence". The last part was a nudge toward inanity and emotive, but you got to do you.
I agree to a certain extent. But there are lots of PS1 games that the gamers of today never experienced. I think it's fair to bring those back. Legend of the Dragoon, for example.
The Getaway maybe
Don't tell me you think Ireland is a city in England? I wouldn't put it past one of you Yanks to think that.
Big island city bro
Ireland isn't a city in England. Ireland is a renegade autonomous island prison.
How to insult the entire Irish nation in 3 words
de rappa da crappa or whatever its called. i'd like that.
It's definitely MGS. Probably Sony are going to announce that they bought Kojima Production and the MGS IP from Konami.
That would be gigantic, too huge to imagine.
The lyrics for "The Best is Yet to Come", the song played over the credits for the original Metal Gear Solid (and reused in MGS4), were in Irish. There have been persistent rumors of a remake of the original MGS for PS5 for the last year or more. Not saying that it's definitely what it is, but it's a possibility.
It’s obviously Ico. She is an Irish celtic singer.
If you wanna remake something make it a worthy of remaking , look for the popular demand and stop stalling
The signs point to Metal Gear here
Kept you waiting huh?
I think it's MGS.
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater remake confirmed. 100% Exclusive for PS5. The surprise is that it will be by Blue Box. (Blue Point + Kojima Productions collabbing as the new studio Blue Box)
I would literally die happy if it's either Xenogears or Metal Gear Solid.
If I don't see another remake for 3~4 years I would be happy. Give me something new people.
