Websites such as TheSixthAxis and Shopto.net’s blog have both approved that an announcement of a PS3 exclusive title will come on Friday the 13th of May at 9:30am GMT (4:30am EST). While TheSixthAxis was somewhat cagey it is all but obvious that the game to be announced will be Starhawk, saying:
We can’t say what it is exactly, but we can say it’s a full hands-on report on a brand new PlayStation 3 exclusive, and it’s one you’re not going to want to miss. We’ll have impressions, screens and an interview all at around the same time.
Shopto.net were a little more forthcoming, stating:
Tick Tock, Tick Tock that’s the clock counting down to the Starhawk reveal this Friday.
These add to the already known rumors that Starhawk will be revealed, coming from all manner of sources including an a “Sony surprise” coming in the next episode of GTTV on Friday, the fact that Sony recently registered the domain: StarHawkSite.com (which pretty much singlehandedly confirms the game) and teasing tweets from Dylan Jobe, President of Light Box Interactive (set up by many of the team from Incognito Entertainment, the makers of Warhawk) saying:
Personally, I think Warhawk was a badass multiplayer title, especially considering that it was came out in 2007: 32 players, huge maps, and enjoyable on-foot, vehicular and air combat. It’s announcement will certainly serve as welcome relief to Sony, desperate for some positive attention, and broadcasting an exclusive title which Microsoft would kill to have will serve them just well.
Thank Eddie for the find!
Update:- Full Clan support (not just a tag)
- In-game calendar
- Cross-Server Clan Voice Chat
- A Fully Automated and Integrated Tournament System (we heard him say “cell phone,” but we’re not sure if it was something in-game or not)
-Multiplayer will support up to 32 players
Kotaku is claiming that they’ve gotten their hands on some leaked boxart for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Activision talked about the next entry in the Call of Duty series during their quarterly financial report on Monday. But aside from calling it “awesome,” company executives were drastically tightlipped about the next installment of the COD series. As of right now, we don’t even know who’s developing the game, let alone if it’ll be a new passage in the Modern Warfare series.
So what do you guys think? Is this just an awesome Photoshop job? A hoax? Or something else entirely? Feel free to beat up each other in the comments.
Microsoft has officially announced that it has won a bid over Google and Facebook for the ownership of Skype at the cost of 8.5 billion dollars.
Now, you may be asking why MS news can be found on a PS3 website, but this impact will affect Sony products as well going forward. We all know that PSP has Skype and MS plans to keep supporting that, of course. However, the rumors of Skype coming to PS3 and possibly the NGP are way up in the air now.
MS did announce that they will create a new group to support Skype on other non-microsoft hardware, but will Sony and MS actually work out an agreement? Only time will tell.
Play.tm has implied that the NGP will release this year outside of Japan. As to where outside of Japan, not entirely sure. The site is a UK based site so possibly in Europe first.
They went on to say that Sony will have 4 first party titles at launch with a 5th following shortly after:
Modnation Racers (this game wasn’t even announced before)
Resistance (not for launch but near launch, Jan-March)
Consider this a rumor for now, however Play.tm has been correct on many things in the past.
A couple of leaks came out from the Sony front. Two websites have been registered in the name of Wipeout. Not sure if these are NGP titles or PS3 titles, but I guess we will need to wait until E3 to find out. My guess is one is for NGP while the other is a new PS3 game. What do you guys think?
