VANQUISH to be featured in the next OPM issue

There have been a ton of rumors flying around about Vanquish, the new title by Platinum Games. One of the rumors was that it was a Playstation 3 exclusive because of a leak were SEGA mentioned it might have PSP connectivity and after the trailer hit the internet, everyone assumed it was a shooting game. It seems that both rumors might be correct, according to the Official Playstation Magazine podcast.

Possibly a PS3 exclusive?
That would be cool. i'd like to see what they can do with a PS3 title (considering Bayoneta was ported by SEGA).

More info cant come soon enough!!!

I won't believe it's a PS3 exclusive until it releases.


Oh please, Oh please let it be a third person shooter

Ok all you folks,

Here is the scoop........ and I think that I can help correct those inaccurate guesses....definitely it's going through SEGA. The video you see is a teaser trailer. That is all you are going to get until the powers that be release more... hehe.... As you can see by my avatar. that's me, Paul Wendling. I am also listed in the credits as the costume designer, but what you perhaps didn't know is that for me it's basically an Ironman situation come to real life. I designed the action suit, I personally built that suit, I then acted in that suit, I did all my own stunts in that suit. (3 days of filming) The undergarment is actually (according to the script) an augmented neuro controlled artificial musculature, similar to the robots in I Robot. Then the protective over armour is placed to help protect the main heart of where the strength comes from, namely the muscle undersuit. The main character, Sam, is a secret DARPA lab weapons designer, and when he hears about the destruction, takes it on himself to go out and use his development, and kick some Russian tech and grunt butts.

I can't reveal more until I'm permitted, but if you have any questions about the suit construction, or filming, I'd be happy to oblige.

The trailer is a mix of live action and cgi, but everywhere you see Sam in or out of his suit, that is me doing the acting and stunts, all LIVE and REAL, with air cannons throwing debris, jump rigging, being blown away by explosions, etc. with cgi cleanup and augmentation of some elements like the last blast fling. All backgrounds were cgi of course, but the suit has some new twists, that NO other shooter character has, and you guys will go ape over some new moves..... think perhaps Metroid for a hint(but keeping to actual workable real life physics), and another hint... those curious items on the thighs...... let's just say that you will have to have 3 hands on gameplay to really master the possibilities of unheard of before moves. Another hint, those big forearm bulges in the armor... hide some really cool things as well :)

As to the comments about the faceplate covering the mouth, not the eyes..... The blue plate is a nano barrier for breathing, the helmet actually totally opens and closes up in a segmented fashion (think the helmets from Lost in Space, or Stargate.) The vision is not through glass, but I'm looking at displays projected onto the eyes, which are fed from multiple sensors over the helmet.

I've got tons of pics from filming. The suit was hell to do all the stunts in, altogether weighed about 40 pounds, the gun weighed another 12 pounds. Aaannnnd when I'm released to be able to do so, I have all the molds..... anyone want a ridiculously expensive Video game hero suit for this upcoming halloween?

All the best,
Paul Wendling

Great Info Pal, it looks promising and if this article is Right we can safely say that everything on the Document from Sega will become Real

DOMination3786d ago

If anything this will be 360 exclusive in the end. PG couldn't care less about the PS3 as evidenced clearly from their last title.

Rikitatsu3786d ago

The game is being featured in OPM and you're saying its a 360 exclusive? smh

THC CELL3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

THC CELL3786d ago

from Sega i hope its better than avp,
and if exclusive haha x box this guy looks like Ur beloved halo master chief, only better looking

TOO PAWNED3786d ago

This is from Sninji Mikami, Resident Evil series creator, guy that changed industry in one or the other. First with Resident 1-3 and few years ago with Resident Evil 4, we all know how that game affected game design since then.
So comparing this to AvP, i mean come on.

MajesticBeast3786d ago

Didnt that leaked doc by Sega, say vanquish for the ps3/psp. Further more with all the love Sega has given the ps3 it wouldnt surprise me to see it being a ps3/psp game.

DaTruth3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

It's almost a wonder how Dreamcast(then XBOX then HD-DVD then 360) fanboys can hate Sony, but here is Sega working tightly with the competitor who put them out of the console business!

I mean, they had a few bad run-ins with Ninty, but PS2 is the console that officially crushed their console dreams. If anybody should be bitter!

Baka-akaB3786d ago

that hate was hardly warranted anyway , the dreamcast worked awesomely well and was even the best launch possible with the best launch lineup ever released , sega exec (peter moore being one of them despite his claims of otherwise) drove it into the ground .

ChozenWoan3786d ago

Xbox live was created in part by Sega who worked with MS while developing the Dreamcast. When MS decided to keep the online system and to come out with the Xbox, this is what killed Dreamcast.

So Ninty created Playstation and Sega created Xbox... funny how things have turned out over the past 3 gens.
