Sony Teases Something New With "When Worlds Collide" Pic?

Okay, who has some bright ideas? I'm baffled.

The official PlayStation Facebook page has given the gaming world a teaser image called, "When Worlds Collide." The mysterious teaser is linked on their Twitter channel, too.

It's difficult to get much from the picture; it looks like one planet being eclipsed by another. It's possible that it's related to the recently released DUST 514, because Edge once used the line "When Worlds collide" to help promote CCP's new game. Basically, it was because DUST 514 was going to be part of the existing EVE Online universe. But maybe this is something else...

Another thing to remember is that "When Worlds Collide" was the name of a sci-fi novel from Philip Wylie and Edwin Balmer, which was published back in 1933. In the book, a bunch of scientists try to build a spacecraft so they escape Earth, which is wracked by environmental disasters. Oh, and another planet is on a collision course with Earth, too.

So...any guesses?

Yeah, might be a Dust 514 PS4 announcement or something.

Personally I hope it'd be a Killzone/Resistance crossover. Chimeran Helghast, yes?

Well, it was a movie as well and there was a second book called After Worlds Collide when said American scientist and passengers reach the planet and discover a abandoned self-repairing cities. Along with battling Other sutviors of earth, British and the Red Menace.

My guess... the game probably has nothing to do with it, but might be interesting if they were to put a modern spin on it.

When Worlds Collide could be just first contact or races which leads to war.

Good title... as for a game... we shall see.

Keep Playing!

Someone in the comments section says the picture shows a hybrid solar eclipse which will happen this year November 3rd. So if that's true then that's our release date? PS4 and PS3 worlds will collide to bring awesomeness?

Or Naughty Dog will reveal Savage Starlight?

Whoa. I just googled savage starlight, and wow. That would be the dream game for me. A space epic from Naughty dog on ps4 would know minds away. Period.

I believe it is for Killzone Shadow Fall. The shadow covering the light kind of visualizes the title, "Shadow Fall," and the phrase "When Worlds Collide" could mean the Vektans and the Helghast sharing a planet (Sony mentioned this in one of the press conferences or some blog post or something--can't recall).

Any one remember the painting in GOW:A. "When the earth stops, the journey begins." Could these two things be related??

When worlds collide is also representative of two opposing factions facing off in an epic confrontation.

Could be anything.

EDIT: After looking at the picture. It has to be some kind of futuristic thingy. The colour or font doesn't match any of the franchises we currently know of.

Could the colour, violet/purple, be a hint of some kind. Perhaps jase52476 is right the red/orange Helghast mixed with the blue Vetkan could be a purple.

I'd like to think that the ad is referring to a new IP or a situation where two IP are in one game.

Could be related to Ascension. The tag line read " when the world end, our journey begins". Something like that.

I think it might be a hint at the release date of the console.

Why they are saying when worlds collide it might be the PS4 colliding with our living rooms :P

Otherwise maybe its a new IP?

Turns out it IS a new Ratchet & Clank game. It's called "Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus" for the PS3. It's supposed to have the "traditional" Ratchet & Clank style, like "Back in Time" and such.
