The naysayers called it the poor man's Metal Gear Solid but in truth, Syphon Filter was once a great, entertaining series.
Many fans have been waiting for an installment on the PlayStation 3, too, so if this information is accurate, there will be quite a few happy gamers out there. Are we ready for Syphon Filter 4 ?
According to SilleGamer citing the August 2011 edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine Italy, we will indeed receive the fourth entry exclusively on the PlayStation 3 in Winter 2012. This comes after evidence of a new title popped up on the official US PlayStation website; evidence that included details and an early logo, and promptly disappeared. Supposedly, Syphon Filter 4 is a sequel to Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow for the PSP and it's in development at SCE London Studio. Oh, and we're looking at what should be a "visually advanced engine." Yeah, well, we can always use that.
Hopefully, Sony will make the announcement some time soon. Of course, it's still just a rumor but we fully expect an unveiling. Sometimes, Syphon Filter gets a bad rap and while there were a few lackluster installments, the first titles were some of the best available on the original PlayStation. Let's not forget that.
