LegitGamer - Cancelled footage for Sony's PS3 exclusive, Eight Days, has emerged.
The destruction looks amazing, not a fan of the vid being youku as that's pretty slow for me
That looks exactly like the frostbite 2 engine! /s
You're right to be sarcastic....there isn't enough dust/smoke in this game to be running on the frostbite engine. /lol
Ummm that was supposed to be sarcastic. did i not use the right backslash s? would i have gotten agrees if i said COD engine? i don't get it
This looks like pretty much made, and it looks damn good. Hope they revive it, even though it looks like Naughty Dog got many ideas from it.
Why in the hell was this canceled?! It looks great!
This+Getaway 3 for PS4, please Sony!
Jaw-dropping in a good way or a bad way? The game looked mediocre to me.
If this game was being published by MS all of you disagreers would have agreed with me.
ARGH. Why did someone have to leak this?? Cancelled game footage is always torture. The other day, I was watching footage of a ps1 Superman game that looked....GASP...PLAYABLE. And footage of a Flash game (the superhero....what were YOU thinking?).
The soundtrack alone made me want it.
Footages ''Emerges''? There was plenty of footage of this game years ago. If memory serves, 8 Days and The Getaway PS3 were both put on indefinite hiatus so that Sony may apply it's resources to more established IPs. If I had to guess, I'd say 8 Days got dropped because new IPs are not only risky but costly and Sony already has a brilliant Third Person Action game franchise, Uncharted, that 8 Days just didn't match up to in terms of quality or set itself far enough apart from.
Remember the game is on hold, it is not cancelled. I think that they didn't want this to compete with Uncharted, so they put it on hold until the uncharted trilogy has been released. Then Naughty Dog will be most likely working on something else (Maybe a new IP or sequel to Crash Bandicoot), and then Eight Days resumes its development! Well...that's my theory anyway.
perhaps testing the waters to see if a revival would be a good idea or not?
If memory serves me right, it was put on hold firstly because Sony wanted London studios to focus on Home. But quite frankly, Home is out for a long time now and I hardly believe it takes that much people to keep it going, so you can be right there for why they didn't got back to this game. And for the next ND game, although I want Crash by ND as much as the next guy, this is not going to happen. They left it behind a long time ago, when they choosed to be brought by Sony and Universal retained the IP. I don't think the IP holders today are interested in exclusives, Sony isn't interessed in assigning a big studio for a multiplatform and definetely ND isn't the "revisiting the past" kind of developer. So don't count on it...I may have to eat my worlds, but I really doubt it'll happen.
I personally believe they hit a performance hiccup with the game. Didn't wanna sacrifice anything from it so they decided to put it on hold until the next generation for more power to execute the game in a better way.
If the video gets taken down I've uploaded it to here so people can see it. http://www.zshare.net/video...
We're thanlkful for that^ bubbles+
this was described as jaw dropping?....looked generic tps mix between army of two & kyne and lync. They should of not said anything.
You fail to realize that this game is still a work in progress. This looks like an early build to me because the 8 Days we all saw in 2006 was much more fluid in animation and presentation.
It looks like a GOOD kyne and lynch. Animation was fluid and reaslistic. Music was pretty gay though. Video quality was also garbage.
Epic intro is epic. Dude with the glasses reminds me of Sawyer from LOST, haha. What im wondering is, which is gonna be more amazing, Eight Days or Agent? Then again Eight Days was put on hold, and Im not sure how long Agent has been in development, but both games are taking a LONG time to come out. This is gonna be fun Agree or Disagree if you Agree
Looks like it used Red Faction level destruction too. Shame it's cancelled.
but sony i think are testing to see where this game stands and i believe this will see a release date in 2012-2013 betaway 3 eight days were only put on hold according to sony president of europe to finish the ps MOVE. And since that has launched and done quite well i believe development on both of these games will start soon or already started again
Wow!! Oh come on...someone revive this!
Oh hell no Sony, You HAVE to resume this project just imagine todays graphics and use of the gpu and CELL or watever, this could be the bar setting game for Co-op Petition time oh hell they never work...
I blame Shuhei Yoshida (President, Worldwide Studios, Sony) for cancelling this project aswell as Getaway 3. If only Phil Harrison stayed a year or two longer, this game would've been alive!
You do know that whem thir was cancelled it wasnt very far along. Sony needed to pump resources at the time into games that were closer to completion. That said, id love for this and getaway to be finished
The resources went into Eyepet, move and home. Not many games that we care about today, not at all. Also, this and theGetaway being canned(or whatever, they aren't coming back) meant the end of London SCE as a game making entity and now they focus on casual stuff and Singstar etc. They also left Cambridge as, seemingly, every OTHER studio's best mates by farming their talent out to all Sony projects with any difficulties from HS to KZ2 and a million PSP games while the only PS3 games being made in the UK were at Liverpool/Evolution with M'storm and Wipeout.
OMG This game looks NEXT GEN
They look differen't from the 2006 trailer unless this was before they changed them But why the hell did the cancel this. I'm not a fan of co-op based games but this looked amazing.
My guess probably b/c of money not enough of it.
I heard it was because Sony decided to focus on Eye Pets.
Can't believe 6 people agreed with you so far.
That might be something to do with the fact hes speaking the truth
Lethal weapon? lol
why??, cause the dude has a mullet?? ;)
Uncharted meets Kane & Lynch. Looks pretty darn sweet yet a tad sluggish. Might just be the video framerate.
Yeah the video framerate was pretty choppy. The game looks great, especially considering that footage was from a very early build.
looks good but might've been direct competition with uncharted
looks great. wonder why it got cancelled?
For 2006 footage, this is Insane..!!!
7 million copies sold and 4 from the prologue...yeah, thats a very bad decision on Sony's part. /s O.o There are people who love GT5, I being one of them.I love Forza as well, perhaps even more with the looks of Forza 4. But to scorn Sony for dropping a game that might have sold 2-3 million if they were lucky, very lucky...for a game that sold as much as GT5...thats like asking MS to chose between Halo and Crackdown, if they came to actually having to choose you know what they'd do.
I think someone is trying to rebuild consumer interest in this game so that it can go back into production.
I was just thinking that when I was watching the video. The video could just be to see how people react to it - if it's positive, we could see this game in the future. Personally I think it looked awesome, shame it got cancelled.
Hell, they could even reveal it at their Gamescom conference tomorrow! I can dream...
This footage was from 2008 not 2006
That's still pretty damn impressive
Huh? wasn't it cancelled mid 07 though?
The Getaway 3 and 8 Days were both put on hold indefinitely, not canceled.
On hold or cancelled, if limewax is right about the date, it's not supposed to be people working in this after that (at least we don't know of any studio assigned to that right now, so no clues of that hold wearing out either)... Fishy? Either the dates are wrong or there have been people working in it, which could lead to an announcement, hopefully soon.
yeah sorry wrong choice of words, I have no idea why I said cancelled either since I was following these games since 06 lol. But bishop-br got my point, the dates indicate that something is afoot here, this is certainly previously unseen footage as well
So they laid about the real time pre rendered footage? destruction & animation is nice though!
a day before sony's gamescom presser someone leaks footage of 8 days too much of a coincedense?
I was thinking the same thing. Just like how Ono from Capcom said he liked to make a Marvel vs. DC if he can then the company announces brand new fighting IP at Gamescom. Things are falling together too well......
. They'll surprise us.
The most impressive last rooftop destruction part not being generated realtime of course
Always wanted to play this and getaway3
Ok theres been to much talk of Eight Days leading up to gamescom, im not holding my breath but.....c'mon Sony shock us with a new IP for fall 2012!
. Looks like every other TPS out there at the moment and the problem is it didn't look anything like the trailer that Sony showed.... http://youtu.be/RDOZvKWXDP4 This is why Sony got themselves in so much trouble tho fanboys are trying to rewrite history. It's also why so many PS3 games are drowning in cut scenes trying to mimic those early CGI demos made to look like actual game play...look at the reticule on the screen...lol KZ2 and motorstorm also had similar demos only to look stupid when the games came out and even the cut scenes didn't have that level of fidelity. Interestingly, those that ignore the past are doomed to repeat it. Just look at EA-Dice and those pre-E3 trailers...lol...never to be seen again like that. The sheeple never learn.
What are you Raven_Nomad.02 All ways so negative towards Sony when all they have been doing this year is giving and giving gamers what they want. I'm not saying their perfect, hey they messed up on the production of Eight days to fund the Eye pet apparently, but come on all you do is troll these articles with long comments...whether your defending Microsoft or bashing Sony. "Interestingly, those that ignore the past are doomed to repeat it." Like Microsofts 2010 Kinect based E3 conference...."We'll have more core games we promise" Fast forward to 2011.......and the same happens Point is nobody is perfect and this game looked amazing for it being in 2006 or even 2008
LOL... 'DO believe the hype'! People said seeing the E3 'target render - trailer' that it wasn't possible on PS3 or indeed on console, but Guerrilla PROVED on KZ2's release that it was! In fact in some ways the final release was better than the 'target render' with the render having perhaps some slightly better animations/textures. KZ2 lived up to its hype, more than I can say about numerous other games and the hyperbole surrounding them.. 'xyz' graphics are going to blow KZ2's out of the water etc etc.. they came.. they went.. they failed!! I'm not going to say KZ2 is still the king of graphics on consoles, but its still near the top and above others that came (years later) and still failed to surpass it! On topic: I just hope and pray that Eight Days and the Getaway live to see the light one day.
with insideout and pantsville it passed the point of funny trolling and pathetic now all i feel is pity .. seek profesional help please
Why is everyone talking about the game? Just listen to the music, it's mind blowing.
Way to take a joke n4g. Really, good job.
All I have to say is that I'm glad they canceled this game..
Ive seen some of this footage b4 but looks cool though
Lol is that you in the picture? AAHAHAHA!!
no, that guy is a meme, don't know what's a meme? Google it.
Looks awesome hope Sony decides to finish it at some point
