Last week, we asked our readers which great PS2 IP, now absent from the industry, should make a glorious return.

Prophetic, we were…?

According to industry insider Tidux , it seems production has begun on a new PlayStation 4 exclusive project. The game in question is a "long-awaited IP from the PS2 era," which certainly leaves us with a lot of possibilities.

How this is written is a little misleading. Is he talking about an IP that was supposed to release during the PS2 generation but never did? Or is he talking about a franchise, or existing IP, and a developer is working on a fresh entry? Me, I'm thinking it just has to be "Chrono Break." …okay, laugh all you want.

Seriously, though, any ideas?

Legend of Dragoon would be ideal.

I would be quite happy with this. Legend of Dragoon was the only PS1 game I brought to Uni with me.

That wasn't a PS2 IP but boy would I love me a sequel. Dragoon is one of my favourite RPGs one the PS1.

Goodness, don't even tease me with 'Chrono Break.' I hate getting my hopes up.

A new 'Jak' would be awesome, but I would want it to be developed by Naughty Dog, and they already have their hands full.

The PS2 had so many gems it is hard to say what IP he could be talking about!

wow… bust a groove. Loved that game!! Some Shadow Hearts would be welcome. Up until recently, I thought that hardly anyone even liked the series. Also … R-Type …

The Last Guardian? Certainly feels that long.

Seriously, I'm hoping/thinking Jak 4 or a new Onimusha would be cool.

It'll be something we already sort of know about, but perhaps isn't officially official yet.

Legend of Dragoon, Bushido Blade, Tenchu, Jet Moto, Onimusha, The Bouncer, Shadow Hearts.

I know some of these weren't on PS2, but once can hope right? lol

@Ben, further to the ambiguity of the message, he also says "from #PS2 era", which doesn't necessarily mean it was a PS2 game. It was just in that era… which is early 2000s?

I'm just throwing shit in the mix. I don't have a clue as to what this game will be.

Finally the return of State of Emergency!

Maybe Bully 2? That's technically from the PS2 era even if it did eventually get ported to XB360 and Wii. Also probably the one with the biggest demand from that gen.

Oh wait, PS4 exclusive, never mind. Rockstar/T2 would have none of that these days.

Meanwhile, in the bowels of Sony Corporate headquarters…

"We have news on the progress of The Last Guardian. We should announce it immediately for the publ…"

"Let me cut you off there… NO. We will not talk about that unless we can show it. Rather, we shall garner interest from a wider swath of our customer base. We shall be vague and non specific. We shall simply spread rumors of a PS2 IP being resurrected. The pondering and speculation will generate buzz in the forums and blogs, swinging an already burgeoning spotlight on the Playstation 4 platform into greater intensity! Already, we have the attention of those who have seen we have superior graphic capability. We already have numerous IPs that our customers are begging for… This will only drive them into a more fervent desire… And in the end, they will want PS4. They will look upon us with rapt attention, and we shall feed them like tiny birds, still in the nest! We shall CRUSH our competition with superior hardware and an abundance of glorious titles, and…"
**snore** Wha???

"My apologies Boss, you appear to have dozed off for a moment… You were mumbling about something… As I was saying, we have been trying to decide what to develop next. I suggested we look at popular PS2 era IPs that never saw an entry into the PS3, PSP, or Vita platforms. The idea of an old IP returning might generate some excitement… What do you think, sir?"

"Ah… Uh, were you referring to ICO and Shadow of the Colossus? I know that many fans want to know how progress is going on the Last Guardian. I imagi…"

**the entire room breaks into laughter**
"Sir, no one takes The Last Guardian seriously anymore. We could release that IP tomorrow, and people would be reluctant to waste a trip to their local stores to purchase it, as they would STILL fear it might still be vaporware. If you want to generate interest, PLEASE, don't mention that! It only garners sad, pitiful laughs these days… Are you suggesting we bolster the funding for it?"

"Just something I… Err, never mind. I guess I just dreamed it… Hmm… What if we were mysterious like Nintendo. They never seem to die, no matter what. Maybe mystery is the trick??? Get the forums and blogs speculating, by not actually announcing the IP. Maybe we can gauge where the customer interest actually lies? Now people, I want REAL ideas!"

*And thus, a fleeting brain fart, amidst a dream of brain fart vapors, was quickly allowed to fade from memory, as the board room shifted their conversation toward real world plans, and IPs that Sony customers take seriously. And definitely not The Last Guardian… LeSigh );
