Sony teases a viral about Hadouken Cabs

8 Nov

hadouken cabs sony ps4 street fighter

VG24/7 reported this morning to has been sent quite a weird viral video from Sony. The short fake ad is called Hadouken Cabs and it’s surely related to something Street Fighter and PS4 (we’re such great detectives). Enjoy!

It could be everything, but given the recent announcement about a Japanese arcade release of Ultra Street Fighter 4, this could probably lead to an upcoming home release on the next-gen. But hey, as we told, could be everything, even a HD remake collection. Stay tuned!

Ah! Don’t forget to visit hadoukencabs.com for more weird stuff!

Murasaki Baby is the new game from Ovosonico

21 Aug

 

murasaki baby ovosonico

Few months ago we report you about Ovosonico, the Italian indie developer founded by former Suda51′s Grasshopper Manifacture director Massimo Guarini, signing an exclusive contract with Sony, to bring (at least) a new IP to one of the PlayStation platforms.

Now, after yesterday’s Sony conference at Gamescom 2013, we’re able to tell you that the new game from Ovosonico is called Murasaki Baby. The title, that seems belonging directly to one of the creepiest Tim Burton’s dreams, is a very unique platformer for PS Vita.

Guarini himself defines the game as “utterly original, deeply emotional adventure taking place in one of the most insanely grotesque and fantastic worlds that human mind has ever conceived”, and we easely agree with that.

The game also seems to make great use of both Vita’s touch screens.

Sorry guys, but Conan O’Brien just won this year’s E3

26 Jun

It’s safe to say that this year’s E3 has been pretty exciting with all the announcements, the next-gen consoles and all, but…yep, it’s hard to say who won the war, especially with the latest Microsoft press release.

Actually it WAS hard. Why? Simply because this year’s E3 had been won by a single guy: Conan O’Brien! Yes, he won the fucking E3 with his latest video!

Prepare yourself to a lot of laughs and enjoy!

Sony (kinda) teases the new PlayStation 4 hardware

20 May

ps4 playstation 4

It’s safe to say that the new PlayStation 4 is really good looking. Maybe…if only we could actually see it!

The brand new console from Sony, pictured above, has been teased by the Japanese company in a not-so-clear video uploaded earlier today.

With the promise that the PS4 will be available to admire (and maybe try) at the next E3, here’s the video. Try to spot some shapes, if you can…

Announcement trailer for Gran Turismo 6

15 May

gran turismo 6

Yep, looks like Gran Turismo 6 is really coming, and if it won’t be delayed too much (see: GT5) we will be able to enjoy it on the current PlayStation 3 console (so, no next-gen at all? We’ll see). Now, it’s hard to say what the game will be about, well, it will be about cars, ok, but from a single trailer (below) we don’t want to risk too much by saying that Polyphony Digital guys are doing a great job. You decide.

For now, we just know that the game features 1200 different cars and something like 33 circuits. Not bad at all!

Your move Forza Motorsport.

First Rain in-game footage shown at GDC

26 Mar

rain ps3 psn

 

Rain is an atmospheric PSN game from Sony Computer Entertainment’s Japan Studio, and it was announced during Sony’s last Gamescom conference. The story centers on a little boy who has become invisible, and the player’s only distinct image of the boy’s position is through interacting with the world’s ever-pouring rain. It sounded like a cool project, but now we got some proofs! SCE finally released the first in-game footage of the game at these day’s GDC 2013.

Sony UK teases something about a new Ovosonico IP (?)

21 Mar

ovosonico sony uk teaser egg

Just few days ago we told you about Ovosonico signing with Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe, to work together on a new intellectual property.

Today we report a strange thing teased by Sony UK on their Facebook page. Indeed they posted a weird red mechanical egg (picture above) just saying “It’s coming…”.

It could be everything, even a new Iron Man game as far as we know…but why we suppose it is something related to Ovosonico? Simply because Massimo Guarini (founder of Ovosonico) shared the news about the egg on his Facebook profile and on Ovosonico’s official page.

Obviously this is just a rumor, but it could say that the announcement of the new IP from the Italian indie studio is coming soon. Stay tuned.

 

Ovosonico signs with Sony

19 Mar

OVO_Banner_ABOUT

Today Ovosonico, an italian independent game studio founded last year by Massimo Guarini, specialized in IP Creation by designing and developing original, unconventional and artistically crafted video games characterized by a strong sense of authorship, signed a partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe. SCE WWSE will be working together with Ovosonico on a new (not-yet-revealed) intellectual property.

These are words from Massimo Guarini, founder and CEO at Ovosonico, known to be a former Suda51’s Grasshopper Manifacture director:

“There has never been a better time to contribute to the growth of the video games industry. Ovosonico aims to challenge convention, to push the boundaries further and expand our medium by delivering innovative, emotionally engaging games that deeply resonate with people.
SCE Worldwide Studios Europe understands our vision and we are thrilled to partner with them. We strongly feel that they are the perfect partner for us.”

On the counterpart, Michael Denny, Senior Vice President at Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe, said:

“We’re incredibly excited to be working with such an innovative new studio as Ovosonico. It is through working with creative minds such as Massimo Guarini that ensures that the best exclusive games are only available on PlayStation and we firmly believe that this relationship will result in something special. This is the first studio we have worked with in Italy and due to the growing talent in this country; we believe the first of many.”

We are really excited about this announcement, because Guarini worked on Grasshopper Manifacture’s Shadows of the Damned as director, and we know that Suda always chooses the people to work with very wisely. By the way, we’re not very surprised about this partnership…because we had some sort of feeling when last February we saw this tweet:

So, can we expect a new IP on the upcoming PlayStation 4? We’ll see, stay tuned.

***UPDATE March 21 2013***

Sony UK teased a strange mechanic egg that seems to be the CG version of Ovosonico logo.
