Sony's "Electrifying Announcement" Involves New PS3 Exclusive?
Oh, these teasers. They get the blood flowing and the mind working, but we sometimes have to catch ourselves before we trip over the often unseen boundary into the realm of the absurd and unrealistic.
But that doesn't mean we can't theorize, postulate and hypothesize before we reach that line. First, let's check the evidence: visit the official US PlayStation site, and you will see it plain as day. In between two images of inFamous and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, there is the information that we should prepare ourselves for an "electrifying announcement" on April 27. That's only a few short days away and everyone is already beginning to toss around ideas and suggestions. If we only saw Sucker Punch's upcoming title, we'd have to assume the announcement would be related to that game; after all, the player will use electricity to his advantage. But what's Uncharted 2 doing in there? How are those two related? As far as we can tell, the only relation is that both are PlayStation 3 exclusives, which, of course, leads us to believe that the impending announcement involves another hot exclusive for Sony's console. We've been waiting on any number of them, including the likes of Team ICO's project, Twisted Metal, and Kingdom Hearts III (none of which have been officially announced). But what else might it be? Could they be talking about a price cut? Or even two price cuts? $50 to celebrate the launch of inFamous in June and another $50 for the release of Among Thieves later...?
Well, we're certain everyone has their own idea but thankfully, we'll know the truth before long. Keep your fingers crossed for that exclusive! By the way, one other relation between the two aforementioned games is that both are set to release this year...
