Wouldn't it tick over at the end of the 365th day and not the beginning of the day? If I'm thinking about it correctly wouldn't it be on the 17th?

Edit: Nah, nevermind. Rethought about it. Makes less sense since the first day would be Day 0.

I hope this is a new IP. Panopticon is something to be taken seriously, it's a theme that can be explored in many interesting ways.

I recommend everyone to read about Panopticon if you don't know anything about it already.

Looks interesting. So something prison related?
Really interested after reading up on this now.

Edit: Or Panopticism o.o
The whole concept is more likely than the prison thing along with that Greek meaning.

The whole setup with with the numbers being CCTV-esque monitors hooked together definitely suggest the latter. It also makes a lot more sense for a game to be built around surveillance and accountability than just a prison where the guards always see you.

Definitely. I was still reading and it does seem to be that way a lot more than the former.

The concepts from "Panopticism in Foucault's Discipline and Punish" are very interesting. The year will be 1m in whatever they are revealing yet the surrounding place to the hooked up timers don't reflect a clean look. Quoting the following as a concept not literally:

As hinted at by the architecture, this panoptic design can be used for any "population" that needs to be kept under observation or control, such as: prisoners, schoolchildren, medical patients, or workers:
"If the inmates are convicts, there is no danger of a plot, an attempt at collective escape, the planning of new crimes for the future, bad reciprocal influences; if they are patients, there is no danger of contagion; if they are madmen there is no risk of their committing violence upon one another; if they are schoolchildren, there is no copying, no noise, no chatter, no waste of time; if they are workers, there are no disorders, no theft, no coalitions, none of those distractions that slow down the rate of work, make it less perfect or cause accidents"

But the timing (a few days before Xbox event) suggest it's console (PS3/PS4) related. It could be for both also (handheld/console) with asynchronous multiplayer concept. Ex. Vita owners play as one of the prisoners and PS3/PS4 are the guards/Warden, or vice versa ;P

enough speculations for the day.

OH....... I didn't notice is was counting upwards. Silly me.
Btw, I read that little quote you posted a while ago and decided to google it myself. Interesting stuff.

The Panopticon is a type of institutional building designed by English philosopher and social theorist Jeremy Bentham in the late 18th century. The concept of the design is to allow a watchman to observe (-opticon) all (pan-) inmates of an institution without them being able to tell whether or not they are being watched.

That's not an indicator. The whole website doesn't have the PS4 label at the top yet.

Vita sounds most likely. Handheld games don't show well at conferences, it's best revealed at an online event like this.

Or maybe they have enough content to show at E3 so they plan on revealing games up until the final blowout at E3. I'm sure they have some games saved for Gamescom and TGS but I also think its a Vita title or some service related to Vita.
