There are tons of top-secret products under development that we don’t know about yet. Some of them will be amazing, and most others will fail to live up to their sky high ambitions; that’s just how it works.
Normally, such secret projects aren’t worth talking about until we can really talk about them, but this is just interesting enough to mention.
So what else was I shown? Well, I was shown a trailer for a game not due out till 2009 but was sworn to absolute secrecy. Apparently, Sony just wanted to give a glimpse of what the console will be capable of.
In fact, the game is such a secret that when I mentioned the game to Phil Harrison last week he was unsure at first whether even to admit the title existed. When I explained I had been shown it under strict Non Disclosure Agreement terms he looked relieved.
I don’t mean to be a tease – all I can say is that I was left speechless. If the footage I was shown truly is “in game”, as told to me by the Sony PR people, then we could be on the brink of a step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion.
Is this Heavy Rain? A PS3 God of War? The ICO game? Something else we already know about? Something completely different?
Talking about something that can’t be talked about is lame, but I can’t help but be a little bit excited
