Words can not express how excited I am for Horizon Zero Dawn. This is like my wildest childhood dreams…. all wrapped together for me to play. The Flintstones, robots, dinosaurs, mechanical bows and a beautiful heroine all in ONE game. Anyways, check out the E3 2015 trailer for Horizon Zero Dawn with Guerrilla Games senior producer Mark Norris.
SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida, has stated that fans helped keep The Last Guardian alive.
“If everyone stopped asking about it, probably we would have [cancelled it],” Yoshida told Edge magazine.
“Tech issues aside, the game was still early in development, so we had to have a really strong desire to continue the project and rebuild on PS4. And of course we believed in the vision of Ueda-san, and Ueda-san and the core teams really wanted to see this realised, and so did I. Having so many people asking us about the game was great encouragement for us to continue the development,” he added.
The Last Guardian is set for a 2016 release on PS4.
“Our E3 press conference demo literally left Drake hanging, and with good cause. We wanted to give attendees of E3 a treat and show them if Sully and Drake ever caught up to Nathan’s brother, Sam, in time.”

Star Ocean 5 isn’t Coming to the West on PS3, Last-gen Market has “Diminished to Nothing”, says Square Enix
Star Ocean 5 will be hitting the PS3 and PS4 in Japan this fall. However, the west will only get the PS4 version due to the diminishing business of last-gen consoles outside of Japan. Star Ocean 5 producer Shuichi Kobayashi explained this decision in a new interview with Destructoid.
“It’s simple. The PS3 still has a fairly large market in Japan, but in the West, particularly the United States, people have just moved on to PS4. The PS3 market has almost diminished to nothing.”
I have to agree with Kobayashi-san. PS3 console and game sales are almost non-existent in the US. The PS4 is still selling like crazy here. While in Japan, the PS3 still has new games and a dedicated base of users who primarily game on PS3. The PS4 has yet to take off in Japan. So this makes complete sense. What do you guys think?
Despite the critical success of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. The games did not sell well. Sony says that The Last Guardian can’t follow the same commercial let downs of those games. Sony’s Jim Ryan commented on the matter below.
“My organisation [Sony] did not perform particularly well with either Ico or Shadow Of The Colossus. I have berated them [the team] for this, and said, ‘We have to do better with this game’”.
He added that big games like The Last Guardian have to be profitable, because “The sums are just too big, the amounts of money are just too great”.
The guys over at the popular YouTube channel The Know, have a source that claims the PS4 version of Rise of the Tomb will launch in Q4 2016 with a price point of $40. This is not confirmed by Square Enix, so take it with a grain of salt. But I will say they accurately leaked info on Dark Souls 3 and various other topics.

Sony has detailed what went wrong with Driveclub on PS4. Sony’s Yoshida discussed it below.
“We are very embarrassed,” said Yoshida, “and we are sorry for that.”
“It’s just the number of people the server couldn’t handle,” he said. “The stress-testing was not designed correctly. So it was the oversight. So the team had to go back to the drawing board in terms of server code. And they have been re-factoring and re-engineering server-side to be able to have more people play the game at the same time.”

The impressive looking new IP Horizon: Zero Dawn will run on a modified Killzone engine, in addition to running at 1080p 30fps on PS4. Guerrilla Games’ art director, Jan-Bart van Beek discussed the matter with VideoGamer.
“It is actually still the same engine but then [there is] an enormous leap from Shadow Fall to this. The Shadow Fall engine isn’t an open-world streaming world engine so for the last two years a lot of technological effort has gone into actually being able to make it work like this.”
