"Two Huge Exclusives" Featured In Next Game Informer

Teasing isn't a nice thing to do. It's sort of amusing for a little while but at some point, you want fulfillment. ...feel free to pass this along to your girlfriend or significant other, as they're likely lacking this information.

Game Informer editor Andrew Reiner is being a bit of a tease right now, as you can see by his latest Twitter update. He says the next issue features "two huge exclusives," one of which is currently unannounced. We have no idea what that one could be, but who wants to bet the announced exclusive is Gran Turismo 5? The rumors have been flying concerning a release date for the game; we've heard about a PS3 Slim GT5 bundle supposedly slated for December 4 and most recently, an "extremely reliable source" said it will actually arrive in the UK on September 25. But either way, GT5 would make for a perfect fit. As for the other title; the "unannounced" one, we'd like to think it's something for the PlayStation 3, but it could just as easily be for another system. If it is for the PS3, we'd love to see a new Kingdom Hearts, Twisted Metal, or Heavenly Sword, and we're certain you guys have your hopeful preferences. Just don't get your hopes up for a Final Fantasy VII remake, okay?  You won't be able to handle the dejection again.

So anyway, keep an eye out for the newest Game Informer, and if our guess is right, you'll be leafing through some gorgeous screenshot goodness featuring the hottest cars on the planet.

Hope it will be kingdom hearts 3 or maybe another final fantasy XIII game.

Game Informer, eh? So what would make one think these exclusives have anything to do with the PS3?

And Ben, teasing isn't a nice thing to do. It's sort of amusing for a little while, but at some point, we want fulfillment.
You never should have told us about an unannounced exclusive that we won't be able to hear about for several months ;)

In all honesty, we didn't really know how long we'd have to keep it under wraps.

ok, does anyone else get the feeling that ben might know something about a ffvii remake that he's just not allowed to say just yet? i keep noticing how he side-talks about it in more and more articles. maybe he wants us to give up hope so can go 'BAMM!! look at this!' when the embargo is off...

Wouldn't surprise me. Though I believe he is more at the point of being pessimistic about it that way if it does not happen, nothing new but if/when it does happen it'll be good news all around.

On that note, just for sake I'm calling it now...

FFVII remake.

Some of my best video game memories from my stoned early 20s (the few memories that I actually have) include many hours of split screen TM on the PS1. It was fun defined, at the time. I can only imagine what a top-gen TM game would be like on the PS3, but it would have to be awesome.

Dude.

I remember when Game Informer came out with that Uncharted2 cover story, good issue I must say. I wouldn't say the Twisted Metal games were supposed to be fun because they were. So I'm assuming Ben will have an article whipped up as soon as everyone else starts revealing it?

god yes i loved the old ape escape games.
and please another pandemonium games.
sony needs to bring back there kid games, they were some of the best exclusives.
sly cooper, crash bandicoot, jak and daxter, ratchet and clank.
they were the best games on ps2, and they dropped them.
if i was sony i would be throwing money at these guys to make more of these.
especially crash bandicoot.
i would be in heaven if crash bandicoot 3 warped got a sequel or remake.
than add on CTR and crash bash...... excuse me while i go change my pants.

Slightly off topic I know but why go on about a Final Fantasy VII remake ? Why not Final Fantasy 6 or 5 or 2 or 3 etc ? Whats special about 7 ?

Now before anyone jumps on me thumbing down etc. I am just asking as I have never played a Final Fantasy game in my life and just wanna know whats with a Final Fantasy 7 remake why that one in particular ? Is it like the best one or something ?

FF7 was (subjectively) one of the largest leaps in gaming history, let alone RPGs. Every aspect of it, from graphics, storyline, content, replayability etc were so far ahead of the competition at the time, that it was a game that many gamers, like myself, have burned into their memory. The experience that many gamers at the time had was so revolutionary, that it is a yardstick that is still used today.

In short, yes, it was the best. The ones before it were great, the ones after it were awesome, but VII defined a generation. Like Studio 54 or somethin.

I'm guessing it will be for 360, and that's cool because those guys reeeeaaaally need some games. And dual system owners need a reason to either dust that thing off or load it up in it's coffin and ship it off for another fix.

How about a Twisted Metal add-on for GT5? Awesome graphics and missles. They could add a "road rage" mode.

Sony is securing exclusives for both 2010 and 2010. I wonder what Microsoft has in store aside from Alan Wake, Halo Reach and Mass Effect 2?

Ummm... Guys... Reiner could just mean that GI has two exclusives. In journalism jargon, he could just mean GI has two "scoops" on two games before anyone else has the info.

One scoop concerns an already announced game, maybe GT5's release date. The other scoop could be on an unannounced game. His tweet doesn't necessarily have to refer to a console exclusive game.

Just my two cents. I could be wrong though.
