BBC blogger Darren Waters got a sneak peek at some upcoming titles in London a few weeks ago. He thought Motorstorm 2 looked excellent, and that the Resistance 2 trailer was enticing. But what rocked his world the most?
...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.
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.
Sony hasn't always been the most credible about in-game rendered footage (*cough* Motorstorm and Killzone 2 *cough*), but as of late, they have a pretty good track record on calling their own bluff.
