This is a tough generation for Japanese devs working on PS3 with sales and enthusiasm for their products down well below normal and healthy levels.
The UK PS3 game sales charts for 2011 (compiled by GFK Chart-Track) featured no games in the top 10 from Japan. The list was instead dominated by American, Australian, Canadian and European studios. In addition, Japanese devs barely figured in the top 100 multiplatform charts too, excluding the always prolific Nintendo devs.
Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.
In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.
So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed eighty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.
Anticipation. It’s the constant state of the avid gamer; always with their fingers on the pulse, they await the next big sensation. Whilst they feast on a gratifying main course of Dead Rising 2, F1 …
Holiday 2011 can’t come any sooner.
Famitsu released new screenshots of The Last Guardian. This game looks so beautiful…
The long wait for more news on Team ICO’s next project, The Last Guardian, will be coming to an end at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Creator Fumito Ueda will be presenting the game to a crowd of salivating journalists at the event next week. Better bring a towel.
The Last Guardian is number six in our top anticipated games for this year, but for a title that we’re so excited about, we know little about it.
Well the start of the flow of information for the game may have now arrived as the game’s website has now launched in Japan.
Fumita Ueda is one of the greatest artists working today.
It’s a bold statement, but if the “Are games art?” case were to ever go to trial, we’re pretty sure Team Ico’s Ueda-san would be called as a key-witness. In fact, he might even be the defendant.
Ueda-san is one of the rare few in the gaming industry who bows to no man. A visionary with shows impeccable patience on the path toward an ultimate goal. The creation of a videogame that not only entertains, but engages a player on the most emotional of levels.
Next year, after five years since his last project, The Last Guardian will launch on the PlayStation 3. And when it does, after hopefully being experienced by as many people that it deserves, there won’t be a dry eye in the house.
Fumito Ueda, the much-lauded creator of Ico, has been talking with games magazine ‘Level’ about aesthetics versus the available technology, and he admits he has a love/hate relationship with the limitations hardware imposes on him.
As the project lead on The Last Guardian, that led manly journalists to shed real tears when it was shown at E3 this year, Ueda has a lot to say about how visible flaws can be made inconsequential when placed in an impactful gaming world.
