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...

I was thinking something along the lines of a demo too, but including it on the inFamous disc sounds even more likely. Good thought.

I was thinking maybe announcing that Uncharted 2 will also get its release date bumped... including a demo.

But now that I think about it more, I think you're probably right on the money with this one. Kudos!

Ive read all the comments and this is the best and most believable suggestion.
It has to be something that connects the two games together and all the talk of an impending U2 demo recently suggests that this scenario is plausible.
It would boost inFamous sales for sure, it probably the least known of all the PS3 exclusives in my opinion.

Maybe something concerning pricing of PS3 exclusives, specifically those two titles. $49.99 PS3 exclusives would be sweet.

... especially since most first-party games are currently more than third-party games released at the same time. Where are the Greatest Hits, Sony?

p.s. Did the guys below even read the article / watch the teaser?

I think it's going to be the Silver PS3 and controller. Metallic colored units, metal is a good conductor, and if you bundle Infamous in special offer then you have an announcement that is Electrifying.

PS3 cut down to $199! PSP2 to be released with 2 knobs! Free juice! j/k...but in all seriousness I would rather not try and figure out what this big thing is going to be, but hopefully it is something that we've all been looking forward to.

It might be GoWIII release date and then again it might be some new exclusive that comes out of left field. Whatever it is here's to it being all sorts of awesome.

So, it wasn't the joke.

Since it is so "electrifying" I expect it to be related to Infamous in some way. Maybe they are bumping up the release date again. It went gold a week or so ago.

I'm not betting the house on a price cut, even though I believe it would double or even triple PS3 sales in the USA at least. I's great to get new exsclusive, but exsclusives won't matter if we don't have sales of the PS3 to put them in....

Jordahn: Please introduce what your linking to. Just posting a random link doesn't help anyone.

The link goes to a PlayStation forum topic about how the announcement has leakked out a few days early. Hint: Uncharted Multiplayer Demo comes with Infamous purchase.

That topic has actually been moved though it's now at the this link.
http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?message.uid=42110330#U42110330

And in case you want to cut out the middle man here's a link to the original Kotaku article. Where this news originated at.
