You may have heard it here before: we are aware of a truly huge PS3 exclusive title that hasn't been announced or confirmed as of yet. Now, as we have promised to keep the game under wraps, we still can't tell you what it is… But with the recent price drop, the introduction of the PS3 Slim, and more reasons than ever to have a PS3 in your entertainment center, we wanted to give you one more.

First of all, don't bother e-mailing us with desperate pleas; those e-mails will go unanswered. Secondly, you can theorize and speculate all you wish but you must always bear in mind that we did not confirm a damn thing. Thirdly, and this much we can almost promise: the game in question is something the vast majority of gamers will likely enjoy, and the only hint we can give you is that it is familiar. Well, we're talking about a massive upgrade over the last installment, but nevertheless…familiar. The good news is that we might be able to spill the beans on this as early as January or February, but we're at the mercy of Sony right now. Our source – who is no rumor-starter but the game designer currently working on the project – says his hands are tied on the issue, and we'll continue to respect that. But if everything goes well, we'd like to think this game will be ready to go by the end of 2010; that may seem like a ways off, but we consider it a damn good reason to own a PS3.

You know about Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , God of War III , MAG , Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time , Gran Turismo 5 , Heavy Rain , and The Last Guardian . This title will have a place in that elite group as soon as it's announced; you can be guaranteed of that. Oh, and if any of you are wondering if there's a chance the game will go multiplatform: no . That's all for now, peeps. 😉

@Xra897…

You are joking right…the name of the article has the words PS3 Exclusive…and you think it's multiplatform…

WOW

My mind is blown by how some people chose to ignore details right in front of there face…

Also, in regards to Kevinater321…check these bits out…

"a massive upgrade over the last installment"

So the game is a sequel in a already established not to mention successful franchise

"we're at the mercy of Sony right now – says his hands are tied on the issue"

Clearly it's a male dev and who has been known to have a close relationship with Sony in the past

Reading in between the lines, me thinks that BEN KNOWS WHAT DAVID JAFFE IS WORKING ON RIGHT NOW…

either that or it's exclusivity has returned to the GTA franchise…because he said it's a massive overhaul of the last installment, which leads me to believe it may not be GOW related even if Jaffe is involved because the past 3 games have been stellar…

PearlJamer:
Xra897 never said he thought it was multiplatform. He just reasoned that it was probably 3rd party because Ben didn't say it was impossible, just "Highly unlikely".
Maybe you should should actually read what the comment said. It's weird, my mind is blown by how some people chose to ignore details right in front of their face, too.

Wrong, he said it's probably multi because it is third-party. meaning he thinks it's multiplatform because a third-party studio is making it.

But anywayz, I'm pretty positive it's a new Twisted Metal, especially since the last time we really had this discussion we narrowed it down to certain ones and Twisted Metal was a major option in it. =D

It's Twisted Metal.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Twisted Metal Head On the last game in the series on the PS2?

And if you beat the game didn't it kind of hint Twisted Metal PS3 was coming?

Also, Twisted Metal is owned by Sony, which is why Ben wrote it is highly unlikely it will go multiplat.

It is also why Sony gets to say when the developer can announce anything officially.

Also, on Heavenly Sword 2, Ninja Theory IS making a multiplat game for NamcoBandai; but it is NOT Heavenly Sword 2. Ninja Theory already said as much.

Furthermore, Ninja Theory does NOT own the rights to Heavenly Sword. Sony owns the intellectual rights to Heavenly Sword just like M$ft owns the rights to Halo.

For some reason, I would love MediaMolecule to make Heavenly Sword 2

They seriously got the talent for it
Could easily add a lot more variety in gameplay too. Puzzles, platforming, etc.

And yes, SCEE owns the rights to Heavenly Sword

Yeah Pearljamer gets a huge fail on this one. Xtra obviously has a good amount of intelligence and deduction skills. But as dlte already said exactly what I was thinking, I'll just say this: Pearl = fail.

Anyway, I think it is definitely a new Twisted Metal.

ThePearlJamer
ThePearlJamer

how is that a fail when clearly more people agree with me than him…his comment totally contradicts what the article said…

NiteKrawler

I assume that most people on the internet lack basic comprehension skills and will therefore agree with anyone else with the same impairment.

He said "he mentioned multi so it must be 3rd party."

If you just take a second to understand this, you will see that he meant that because Ben said that it was "highly unlikely" that it would go multiplat, then it still could go multi, although the chances are extremely thin. A first party game would never ever go multiplat…ever. Therefore, our basic deduction skills bring us to the conclusion that the game must be from a 3rd party developer.

However, I still doubt that this is true because I think it is a new Twisted Metal game. But the way you reacted to his statement, in a manner that basically says he could never be right about it being from a 3rd party developer, tells me that you didn't comprehend what he was trying to say correctly. If you did, you would have realized that he could definitely be onto something there. That's all.

I agree, this article is what is wrong with journalism in this industry.
All this causes excessive hype that the game cannot live up to. Not one game this generation has lived up to the hype as the games are built up by the media before they are even announced!
I say leave rumours and announcments-of-possible-announcements in the forums.

I thought Killzone 2 quite nicely lived up to the hype, as I'm sure uncharted 2 will also

You'd think that gamers these days would get smart and not give in to the hype. Sometimes it is hard, but it isn't impossible. If you give in to the hype and are disappointed, it is your own fault.

Twisted Metal GTA? Hop out of your vehicle run and gun to the next vehicle, rip your opponent out of the car, run him over with his own car, tear off with reckless abandon. Laugh like a maniacal clown. Don't forget to pick up a hooker to refill your health…
