It seems as though the new hotness in the gaming industry is leaking info related to games. Ubisoft has been the “victim” of it time and time again so far with AC3 (have we had their official release come first yet?). Sony seems to be suffering from the same problem with the game that they teased us about last week, which most purported (and were correct) was the next God of War game. Last week they posted this image on their Facebook page:
Well turns out because of the trend Amazon kind of pulled the trigger a little too early… Shacknews.com reported that the online retailer had posted images, a description, and teaser trailer yesterday. Now ShackNews posted their article at 8:06pm PST indicating that this probably happened way earlier than when the article was posted. Unfortunately, you could tell how disappointed Sony was with this early break when Sony’s Worldwide Studios President, Shuhei Yoshida, simply tweeted, “sigh.” from his Twitter account. Now if, like me, you’re a big fan of all things GoW (yes, both Gears of War and God of War), then you’re going to get at least a wee bit excited about the teaser! So without any more delay, here it is:
News hounds Greg Miller and Colin Moriarty of IGN.com posted a great video breaking down and analyzing the teaser trailer in their latest Playstation Conversation. It won’t let me embed it here so (apologies) you’ll need to follow the link: http://go.ign.com/Jj5Ml8
My big question, throughout all of this, is who is making this? There was no studio attached to the trailer, so it could be anymore. More than likely, it’s being developed by Sony Santa Monica, however until we know for sure it’s all up in the air. Regardless I’m still kind of excited for this. Are you? Let me know in the comments below.
