Sony announces TGS line-up, no TRICO?

Insane For Sony

Well, that's either Ico running on a PC emulator, PS3 HD remake, or one of the high res promo shots they rendered out of the PS2 engine. That much is very clear from the clean filtered floor texture.

I also though the game is called Toriko in Japan, which is the gryphon's name? Why still refer to it as Trico?

Any good leads on the unannounced PS3 game? C'mon GAF. Show me your detective skills.
There is a Syphon Filter in development, and Starhawk if there rumors are to be believed. The Wipeout people apparently have something, and SCE Cambridge. Could be anything.

But, my guess is Metronome.

Ico used scope with black bars on top and bottom (on a 4:3 screen though) for cutscenes, and that image is from a cutscene.
An impeccable memory you have, yeah, you're right.

Really? He's been working on TRICO alone for about five years. Heck, ICO went into development in 1998. You think Sony would let a 16-18 year old lead their very own project?
The man's got nice skin.[/creepy]

Well, he doesn't look 40 for sure.

Here's the same scene from the PS2 version. You can see more on the sides of the CEDEC image.

Aren't Level 5 announcing a new game soon? Though WKC2 did just come out a couple of months ago, WKC3 could be the unannounced ps3 game. I'd say it's either that or Valkyria Chronicles 3, though I think it's more likely to be a Sony published game given it'll be at Sony's booth.

What I really want is Demon's Souls 2 though. =(

Dark Cloud 3 would be nice too. Preferable to WKC3.

Honestly, as long as I get more info on the Last Guardian I'm good.

It could be from an emulator, or they could have ported the greatest game of all time to the PS3 and will be announcing it and making me cry very soon.

Or could have just up-resed that specific scene only for show-and-tell.

That list in the OP is for playable demos only right? There could be more than just one unannounced games then, it's just that they won't be playable.

Are there any (core or casual) Move games that the Japanese gamers actually care about? Aren't most Move games Western-made?
I have no idea what SCEJ is doing this gen outside of PSN games (next to Trico, GT5). Their output is laughable. I can't see the Move being successful at all in Japan. They will have zero interest in games like Sports Championships and Move Party. Any reason they should buy these and not Wii Sport (resort) and/or Wii Party? I can't believe there is no Minna no Golf MOVE edition at launch. What the hell are Claphanz doing?

The announced Ico and the SotC skins in LBP is enough evidence of something imminent.

The chance of Demon's Souls 2 getting announce is very, very slim IMO. Even if they are working on it, they most likely have just started, which means a release before 2012 is unlikely.

If they make DS2 more casual friendly, sony should better start to beg for mercy from god!
I want friendly fire and 10x more difficult levels in DS2!

A new hot shots golf or tennis or both would have been perfect for this year...

There's 6 or 7 Japanese Move games coming this year. I'm not sure how many of those, or how many of the western games, have potential for big interest.

Getting it into Ni no Kuni could be a good idea for Sony. Though evidently it won't be showing any Move support at TGS anyway...

Move, I think, is about being part of the offering for PS3, not the extent of it. It's about addressing loss aversion - if you get a PS3, you now won't miss out the type of experience you previously DID entirely miss out on if you chose a PS3 over a Wii. It's about reducing purchase risk, which is exactly what selling stuff is all about. To help people who might be inclined toward a PS3 but who would worry about missing out if they don't have a Wii. So the answer to who would get those games over Wii Sports or Wii Party is...those people who overall want a PS3. That sounds simplistic, but that's what I think the strategy is, filling in a gap in the range of experiences available on the platform to help cement purchasing decisions in favour of that platform. If you're asking if these games would help an induce an existing Wii owner into buying a PS3, by themselves, no, they wouldn't. But there's other stuff helping to do that. Move won't hurt with that segment though, if Move can help generate any more software sales on PS3 among dual Wii/PS3 owners in Japan, that's a net gain for Sony.
