Sony's Mystery PS3 Title To Be Unveiled At E3?
A while back, some of you may remember a BBC game journalist sitting down with an early build of a mystery Sony title that left him "speechless." He would offer no further details on the subject, though, so everyone has been left speculating since that time.
Well, several game website members and journalists have been invited to a private preview at E3 where Sony will present a "currently unknown title," and we're instantly reminded of that former quote. It could be any number of titles, but let's hearken back to those words once more:
"All I can say is that I was left speechless. If the footage I was shown truly is in game, as told to me by the Sony PR people, then we could be on the brink of a step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion."
Now, a little while back, we also got a hint that the August issue of GamePro might include a major feature on Team ICO's PS3 project, which some believe may be a sequel to last generation's phenomenon, Shadow of the Colossus. If you think about it, how many of us were left "speechless" by some of the Colossi in SotC? Remember the level of detail and artistry, plus the overall "wow" factor? Furthermore, can you imagine that on the PS3 made by the same team in the form of a sequel? Yeah...perhaps this is the mystery game. But we're just guessing for now, and the final word won't come until Tuesday, which is the day of Sony's E3 conference.
Any other ideas, readers?
