Springtime Brings A Unique Journey

Thatgamecompany has already wowed us a couple times, so you can bet our expectations are high.

And although we won't get it this year, we're still anxious to try the studio's latest innovative title, Journey. Thatgamecompany has announced that it will launch exclusively on the PlayStation Store in the spring; there's no concrete date but we can live with that...for now.

The Flower developers are in the process of creating a unique quest that deals with the vulnerability of humanity and the thrill of adventure in an unknown world. It also implements online multiplayer functionality in a way we've never really seen before, which is the only aspect of the game that may or may not cause problems. Said creative director Jenova Chen at the PlayStation Blog:

"While there is still a ton of care and polish needed, we can't wait to finally deliver Journey, TGC's take on an online adventure game. Like all our games, Journey is an experiment. In the end, it's what you think that matters."

For more on Journey, check out our preview. We're definitely excited to see how it turns out, and we hope Chen and Co. are rewarded for their efforts. We need continual injections of freshness and innovation in this industry, you know.

Looking forward to this game. As a gamer I just love TGC's mindset.

No idea. I'd go for the Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection on the PSP, but that's me.

I side with Ben on this one. A DS is worth it if you're interested in other unique titles (Knights in the Nightmare, for instance), but many of those have been ported to PSP. If you're only looking for the FF experience, go with the PSP and get Dissidia and Crisis Core along with the remakes (which, incidentally, I think are prettier on the PSP).

Personally, I'll wait for the Vita and see what the backwards compatibility is like. Ben, do you know yet if downloadable PSP titles will be playable on the Vita?

lol, i have a psp 2000 pal, and i have the collection too, but i heard 4 and 3 remake on the ds is an overhaul of the old games, neways i think it's better to wait for the vita now, who knows we might see some 3,4 and 7 remake for vita

I'm sorry I forgot about you when I mentioned several names a few threads ago. If it means anything to you I was slightly drunk and you're Canadian.

"Drunk" and "Canadian" should probably go hand in hand, fair friendo! At least... with the Canadians I know. lol

Just bought it from New Egg after your post on the Uncharted thread. I didn't get the great deal you did but, at $35 bucks, free shipping and no tax, it was a no-brainer.
I will be getting mine by Friday I'm sure but, I need to get my 47"1080p HD 3D TV first before I look at these gems again. I'm more exited to play SotC in 3D than Uncharted3, can you believe that? LOL

So far I've been enjoying ICO, amazing graphics. Hard to believe a game that's 10 years old could still look this good which is just further proof to how unique the art is in this game.

I thought this damn game was coming in October. Oh well, I'll just have to buck up and play the 8-10 games I have pre-ordered between now and early next year and wait it out. I absolutely love both of their first two games, very well made and have a certain "soul" to them that a lot of games lack nowadays.
