New PS3 Exclusive To Be Revealed Within Next Few Weeks
By now, you should be well aware of the list of 2009 PlayStation 3 exclusives that has the potential to dominate the competition. Led by the likes of Killzone 2, God of War III and Gran Turismo 5, everyone has high expectations for PS3 software this year.
But we haven't completed the list just yet. As you can see by this scan from the Dutch Official PlayStation Magazine, Sony is prepared to announce a brand new PS3 exclusive within the next few weeks. We have no information on it at this time, but it seems as if OPM will visit Los Angeles so they can feature the game in the next issue. Now, we're aware of projects like Infamous, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Heavy Rain, but what is the huge PS3 exclusive that we don't already know about...? Well, we'd like to assume it's Team ICO's currently unrevealed title that most Sony fans have been eagerly anticipating for well over a year. Many theories have crisscrossed the Internet; some believe we may see a direct sequel to Shadow of the Colossus while others think we may see something entirely new. At last check, we heard that Team ICO had a few titles in development and both of them were PS3 exclusives; isn't it about time that we heard about one of them? The debate will rage, but we've got our money on the talented studio in question.
On the other hand, it may be a game that was initially slated as a multiplatform release but is now only coming to the PS3. Maybe it'll be part of Sony's corporate restructuring...maybe they'll finally make the move to pay for timed third-party exclusives. Who knows? Either way, we'll certainly keep you up-to-date so stay tuned.
