The Wait For The Last Guardian

Jim Reilly writes: " I asked Sony PR if there were any plans to show the game off at E3 next month. "The Last Guardian continues to be developed, however we have no news to share at this time with regard to the franchise and E3," a spokesperson told me."

It's been so long... :'(
I just want to get my hands on it already!

Dante1123659d ago

Same, hopefully it'll release sometime in 2013.

crxss3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

tsk tsk... I can't believe this is news worthy

Freak of Nature3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

I get this feeling it is being held back for PS4. And it's starting to look like they may even wait a year into the Ps4's life (2014 fall) to release, to allow for a larger user base, along with more dev time.
The good news is it will be even better in all aspects. The bad news is more waiting time.

In the Febuary Game informer I recall reading that there have been technical issues and the engineering team is reworking it. It is playable.

Perhaps they are not showing anything due to it being PS4 now? Or my hopes are they come out with a major event full of news at this E3?

As high on my up-coming list as any game, it's almost torture waiting for this beauty.

Muerte24943659d ago

a ps3 title. I'll say it again, this gen life cycle will last longer then most people think. Given the current shape the the economy and the vast amount of studios that are closing, new systems maybe ways off.

irepbtown3658d ago

I dont care how long they take, because from the looks of things they want it to be perfect.

Now I dont call alot of games perfect, but I have a feeling this one will be.

SilentNegotiator3658d ago

I can wait if it means that it is as brilliant as some of their previous titles.

No Last Gaurdian and No Versus XIII.

It's hard to believe there are games that have been there since the Dawn of the generation that still aren't finished.

Hisiru3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

Last Guardian looks like a massive game full of details and a very rich world/characters. I can understand why its taking so long, but I really want to see more about this game and Last of Us

ReservoirDog3163658d ago

Well technically speaking, they could be lying. Remember Valve and the PS3 conference for Portal 2 or Jaffe with Twisted Metal and his outright denial of even going to E3?

I don't get why people believe anything around E3 time.

pixelsword3658d ago

@ tehpwn:

Yeah, but it's not like this is the only gen that had titles like this; most of those tend to skip gens (Too Human, DNIII, Half Life, etc.).

lsujester3658d ago

I hope I'm wrong, but it's looking to me like the short clip they originally showed was the only part of the game they had actually made.

Sort of like when Sony claimed they had been working on Home for a long time, then a year later it released with only a couple of areas.

kreate3659d ago


words are cheap... i want action!!

Denethor_II3659d ago

I'm honestly bored now, the same with versus.

ritsuka6663659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

No game is worth waiting a amount of years for no matter how good it is. it's becoming a joke Sony, they probably work on the game for a month take a year break and then work on it for another month.

Ck1x3659d ago

Well i think Zelda TOoT was a very long developed game and it was one of the highest rated games during that timeframe. So this could turn out to be a major Ps3 final swan song of this generation!

showtimefolks3658d ago

i think this game will be released in q2 2013, when sony sent some of its top people to help with development you know its gonna be done.

hopefully in 2012 but if not 2013 for sure day one buy either way

Its still in developement! I'm gonna be patient!

nCoGn33t03659d ago

Please...don't try that "it was only announced 'X' years ago" crap. Team Ico was one of the first to get their hands on the PS3 dev kits, and early info was "leaked" about the game around the same time the PS3 launched in '06. They've actually managed to make Polyphony Digital look like speed-devs.

gaden_malak3659d ago

That doesn't mean that they've been working on it since they got the dev kit.

Sevir3659d ago

And for us That was when we knew of its exsistence. RockStar games take even longer! at least this isn't Square with FFv13... >_>

nCoGn33t03659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

I thought is was obvious, but I'll play along...

My point is, there's no reason to give them a free pass, for completely ignoring their fans for this long, with little-to-no news along the way. Japanese devs in general have an arrogance about them...much like Sony tends to...and it's bitten many of them in the behind this gen. It wouldn't kill them to throw the fans a bone now and then, to save face.

AusRogo3659d ago

Who gives a fuck? This game will be awesome.

memots3658d ago

Ohh i get it another full of troll thread. I was wondering why a non news "article" was getting front page.

Sony: "The Last Guardian continues to be developed, however we have no news to share at this time with regard to the franchise and E3."

MidnytRain3659d ago

" news to share..."

"Hey, I think I'll submit this as a news story."

QuantumWake3659d ago

I have always had this weird feeling that this game might get canceled in the future. It's been so long since we've heard anything it feels like this game might get shoved under. Sort of like how I feel with Agent.

Hopefully they don't get canned. Can't wait to see more! :D

nCoGn33t03659d ago

At this point, they'd really be better off working on making this a kick-ass launch title for PS4, rather than a laaaaaate entry on PS3. By the time the game releases, the graphics/tech will seem a bit dated, otherwise.

Bathyj3659d ago

I disagree. What AAA titles on PS3 look dated on release? Even the announce trailer looks better than most games currently out and that was 09. Dont you think its improved since then?

Besides, I'm not concerned at all about how the game will look. I know it will be gorgeous. TLG was be an amazing Swan Song similar to GoW2 on PS2.

360GamerFG3659d ago

Starhawk and Twisted Metal

KwietStorm_BLM3659d ago

The tech has been dated for a while now. Anyone expecting something on consoles to set some bar at this point is mistaken. What do you think this game would look like if it released on PS4? It wouldn't compare to the other launch titles.

Bordel_19003659d ago

I agree. TLG should jump to PS4. After this long, and so much anticipation, it's a big chance it will be disapointing on PS3.

MysticStrummer3659d ago

Ridiculous. Some of PS2's biggest titles weren't released until very late in it's lifespan. I didn't play GoW2 until the HD collection released for that very reason.

pixelsword3658d ago (Edited 3658d ago )

@ KwietStorm

I think that there are bars left on both the PS3 and 360 that can be set still. Looking at the future 360 title Halo 4 gives me pause when I think that the 360 is tapped out, and I have yet to see anything on consoles (and few examples on the PC) to match what the PS3 did in Lair in terms of the sizes of levels and amount of things going on per level in a game; sure, the framerate took a hit on some levels at some times, but it was a solid effort that has few peers that honestly matched or exceeded all of it's technical specifications: especially using the "limitations" of the hardware specs. I don't fully agree that the PS3 (or 360)came out with "old" hardware that couldn't compete with modern PC's per se, people are applying old standards to this gen that simply doesn't fit this gen; but if people do consider it true, then it should be no problem showing games looking better than Gears of War or MGS4 before the 360 or PS3 came out. Therein lays the rub, so to speak.

Indeed, if a game comes out that ran with all of Lair's technical caveats and without the basic technical issue it had (framerate [not counting controls, not a technical issue as much as a design choice]) that would be something to set a new bar. I believe that the 360 and PS3 has untapped potential, and the power to back it up concerning games coming out over the next two to three years.

I hate to sound like I'm dowing PC devs (cause that ain't it) but for a lot of PC devs, they just seem to throw a lot of ram at any problems whilst console developers tend to try to work around things like that: that's why Gears on the PC ran like a dream <3 while conversely the Orange Box ran great on the PC (variable ram) the 360 was the best on consoles (familiar ram setup) and the PS3 last (programming-dependent improvements/new tech). It also explains Crytek's portability issues (as well as a few console devs as well, to be honest)

Take time to look over Halo 4's screenshots and go over video of Lair and really see what hasn't been fully realized on either console yet, and hope that a few more PC devs dwell on the not-so new game requirements when making games.

Please Sony. Just some news. Just give us a sniff.

I dont care if we never see another Uncharted, Killzone, LBP, GT, (well I do actually) just give me The Last Guardian.

This game is my most wanted and has been since it was announced.

PS Just because they are not talking about it doesnt mean its in development limbo. I'm sure the team is still working hard on it, they just arent sharing news about it.
