The Last Guardian (of Team ICO fame) is the title he spoke of over a year ago and was "launched" at Sony's E3 conference yesterday.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_GuardianFrom Darren's twitter "Last Guardian. PS3. Finally."http://twitter.com/darrenwaters Wed 03 Jun 2009 20:17:36 GMT+1 Start spreading the news,He's playing today,I want to see him score today, Sammy Clingan ™ (1987) http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/technology/2009/06/e3_2009_predictions.html?page=88#comment16 "I'm also led to believe that a game I was shown more than a year ago now, and got me quite excited, might, just might, be unveiled at this E3. And I've also been told that the game has changed enormously since I first saw it..."Darren, PLEASE , more info about the mistery game!!!PLEASE!!!

I know there are issues with poor software support (which is primarily because of poor sales/piracy), but each piece of hardware sold makes a profit.And profit is clearly the defining factor for Sony with the PSP Go. Smaller footprint, smaller screen, no UMD Drive should mean significant cost savings which will far outweigh the cost of implementing 16GB local storage, but if they can sell 10-20 million at the price points mentioned it will do a lot to help the bottom line in Sony's game division.

All three presentations had thier weak points. The whole Lionhead/Milo thing was odd... Really not sure about that as a whole.lmao @ the 'scripted' thing! That's right... Microsoft were the ONLY ones to script their presentation...Sony spent FAR too much time on the PSP. Why do they insist on pouring so much money into something that doesn't do particulary great anyway? For crying out loud, put the money and time into some games. Then they metion that the PS2 is getting 100 TITLES this year and then they show us but a handfull of ps3 stuff? It was pretty poor. More PS3 stuff would have been nice. I found it a better presentation that Nintendo though, that was horrendously dissapointing. What with the making out all these games were BRAND NEW when they were just more old characters revived once more? Mario Galaxy 2 and M&L looked decent, but I was little gutted that Zelda got no more than a passing mention.The Last Guardian looks SUPERB. Me likey..

That fits with Darren speaking about it over a year ago, as what we saw at the conference was an improved version of the trailer being shown internally over a year ago (and recently leaked).

That said, it's also something that is clearly 18-24 months away from market, so I'm keeping an open mind and hope that Sony can really pull something out of the bag with it.

Its developed by BioWare, partnered with LucasArts and EA. I think it will take World of Warcraft on more successfully than any MMO we've seen since WoW was released back in 2004.It would be nice to see more games coverage on the BBC. Many games are more immersive, have deeper stories and have more longevity than books, films, or any other kind of media, therefore they deserve as much importance when it comes to entertainment news.

In terms of the wii, i hope they have something more than another mario game...

And there's a bunch of other measures (e.g. motion +, new colours) they have still to unveil, which will stimulate the Japanese market before a price cut is required.

I for one will not be propping up Macca's long-overdue slide into the archives of music past. The reason Rock Band works is that it covers a wide gamut of music, picking the best from rock and roll history. The Metallica packs and the Aerosmith packs for GH barely made a dent compared to the sale figures of 2 and 3 because the popularity of the bands is that much less, aimed at a much smaller niche audience. And how many 14 year olds are going to want to play 'All you need is love'?

The new Uncharted2, M.A.G, perhaps a new Metal Gear Solid game, something from team ICO, Heavy Rain and so forth. Also talk of Epic doing a PS3 exclusive horror game from the guy that did 360's Gears Of War (Cliff Bleszinski).

These are undoubtedly more important to the gaming community than such things as Halo and Rock Band!
