Remember Eight Days? The game that was being developed by Sony’s London Studio before being cancelled halfway through development? I remember being utterly enthralled by early footage of this game, but now footage of the game has been unearthed on YouKu of all places. Of course, the footage is of a half-finished game, but I’m starting to get a vibe for why Eight Days was cancelled in the first place.
It’s funny – the things that dazzle us at the beginning of a console’s lifespan seem so pedestrian towards the end. It’s all relative in the end. Perhaps Eight Days would have had the chance to blow our minds had it been released on schedule, but now? It just looks a little bit dated.
