You’ve got to love internet rumors, especially when it’s PS3 exclusives related. The guys ( and gals ) over at PS3Xtreme claim to have the goods on a yet-to-be-announced PS3 exclusive.
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.
Clue # 1: It’s a massive upgrade over the last installment, meaning it’s a sequel to a game already released. Clue #2: This title will have a place with ‘elite’ 1st and 2nd party titles could mean the mystery game will also be from a 1st or 2nd party dev team.
My guess is it’s Heavenly Sword 2. What does everyone else think?
