What Is PlayStation's Mysterious 'Long Live Play' Teaser All About?

The PlayStation folks are promising we'll "see beyond the doors" — the doors at the tail end of the above teaser clip — on October 5, 2011. What brand of video game hype is this? And should we be expecting something amazing next week?

Well, let's see what's in the above mystery clip. There's Sweet Tooth's van from Twisted Metal. There's a cameo by the Metal Gear Mark II from Metal Gear Solid 4. There is what appears to be one LittleBigPlanet glowing orb, a postcard featuring Parappa the Rapper, iconic weapons from Killzone, Ratchet and Clank and Final Fantasy XIII... and perhaps more.

It's slick. It's curiously exciting. But we're keeping our expectations in check. After all, this looks either like the start of a new ad campaign for the fall or a hype clip for the upcoming PlayStation Home relaunch, based on the secret club vibe that would bring the above games together as a group.

We'll know for sure soon. Any other good guesses?


    Yeah its for Home. Definitely.

    Totally not gonna play it lol. Older one was a disaster.

    PS Vita related???? Maybe an announcement of date for other locales besides Japan? (well I can hope)

    In all likelihood, it probably has something to do with an advertising campaign, or could be PSN Home relaunch

    But I am hoping its "solid release date" details on the PS Vita personally

    Probably just kicking of their PS3 ad campaign for the rapidly-approaching christmas spending season.

    Sony has discovered the secret to immortality, and everyone with a Play Station is getting a free 'copy'

    Yeah, it's kind of obviously Home-related... I wonder if it's really gonna be different at all :-P

    I kind of assume it'll be the same but with an added location and a bunch of banners that say "Welcome to the NEW Home!"

    I think I've gone into Home 5 times. Each time was just because I'd get a message in a game that says "You unlocked a Home Item!" and I was curious :-P
