So, I think that at PlayStation, perhaps more than at other places, we’re willing to kinda eat that [cost], and go back to the drawing board and make sure the game is great before we ship it. And that’s what’s going on right now with that game.

I'm looking forward to this game and it's sad to see more talk of delay. Hopefully we'll still see it in 2014.

On a good note ... releasing it now wouldn't really affect Playstation 4 sales, as they already literally sell every unit that they can ship.

The new Last Guardian

#3 Posted by lostrib (32942 posts) -

is this gonna end up being the Last Guardian of PS4

#4 Posted by shawn30 (4361 posts) -

Wow, back to the drawing board? Obviously they aren't scrapping the engine as the game looks great. But wow...

Haha game did look garbage. Glad Sony can see that, even if cows didn't (who actually hyped it lmao)

#6 Edited by Solid_Max13 (3525 posts) -

That's not good I'm starting to think this another last guardian or end up being Killzone 2 where we wait a while

#7 Posted by speedfog (2960 posts) -

Okay the only have one game to look forward to: Infamous SS. And still that looks mediocre.

Uh, it actually looks gorgeous, graphically. No idea what the gameplay was like, though.

Didn't Duke Nukem Forever go back to the Drawing board for 10 years.

These people gotta learn to commit and follow through.

This isn't really bad news, honestly. I have plenty to play on PS3, Vita, 3DS, PC, Wii/Wii U and 360 already. I bought a PS4 to support the new generation of consoles, not necessarily for the promise of immediate gratification. Launch windows always suck, and so do (typically) first years when it comes to new hardware.

I say better for them to delay it if they feel that it will make a more polished final product than to rush it out the door in a misguided attempt to pad the early library of the console.

Hope it doesn't end up like GT....

Delay, delay and then release a turd.

#13 Posted by ghostwarrior786 (3595 posts) -

at this rate the last guardian might release before drive club. im on into racing games so dont know the details for this game but what could they be changing drastically? its a damn racing game, all u need is cars and tracks

#15 Posted by always_explicit (2655 posts) -

Well based on what they released it looks attractive...so my guess is it cant compete with forza in terms of driving physics and thats why it needs more working. Absolutely laughable considering this was supposed to be a launch title. Greatness waits.

What!?!?! Again!!?? It had a release date of April 2014, now it's been pushed all the way to 9/30. This sucks.

THE WHOLE WORLDS STARTING TO FLIP UPSIDE DOWN! Everything is doing the opposite of what people were expecting everything to.

#20 Posted by BigBadBully (567 posts) -

This game should have been the next motorstorm. Guaranteed a launch title and a killer multiplayer experience, drive club could be made later.

b-b--but Infamous!

#22 Posted by Assassin_87 (2296 posts) -

@MonsieurX: I don't really understand the joke. Infamous SS should be a good game for all interested.

#23 Posted by slaves (1155 posts) -

damn that sucks. I'm really looking forward to this. I was hoping it would release in April

At this point it might not even make 2014. But that's just my pessimism talking.

upon reading the article they explaining why they delayed the game and didnt launch during the ps4 launch window. THE GAME IS NOT GETTING DELAYED AGAIN, they are simply explaining why the game was delayed. expect it to launch next month

u might want to add that to op

Next month would make no sense.

TC, way to completely mislead people by posting something out of context. This article is referring to why the game was first delayed before launch, this is not another delay.

Greatness delayed again.

#38 Posted by picklesurprise (177 posts) -

Just scrap it.

The game obviously sucks shit and they know it.

#39 Posted by Stevo_the_gamer (42577 posts) -

That doesn't sound good for the game, but it is a good thing that they refuse to release a shoddy product. I'm fine with going back to the drawing board if it means creating a better product in the end.

#40 Posted by juarbles (801 posts) -

Anything to make an actual real racing game. This will destroy Flopza 5. It's intro will have more content than the entire Flopza 5 game.

#41 Posted by StrongBlackVine (8418 posts) -

So I'll be buying the MLB The Show in May. This game better be amazing when it releases or Evolution might be on the chopping block.

Infamous comes out on the 21st, I really can't see them releasing two big exclusives a month apart when there's a huge gap leading up to October/November or whenever the next big title comes out. Plus announcing a games release date a month before it comes out is very very rare, especially for a big title that Sony will want to advertise a lot.

#47 Posted by super600 (30084 posts) -

From what I heard this game will release well after E3 since the team still feels that this game needs to be worked on a bit.It may be reintroduced at E3 if it is in a showable state.
