I’ve a strong suspicion that a good chunk of the first six months of the year is going to be taken up by Sony and Microsoft teasing things. They may not be anything to do with next-gen but it’s likely both platform holders will be carefully playing a delicate marketing game.
Like this video, which appeared overnight. At first glance it looks like something live action for the God of War series (and indeed, that’s what I’m personally sticking to) but there’s discussion that Sony are going to push something out during Sunday’s Superbowl.
The video ends with a date, though, and that date is the 1st, Friday, not Sunday. Is this teaser little more than a forward pointer to a bigger, longer version in a few days time?
There’s also chatter that we’ll be getting the first real details on God of War: Ascension’s single player mode shortly – whether or not that’s in the same timeframe I don’t know, but it would seem to match up.
As ever with these things it’s interesting to see that Sony are at least still 100% behind the PS3 – God of War might be out soonish but there’s still Beyond and The Last Of Us to roll off the production line, even if Cage’s latest has been suspiciously quiet of late. After those? Well, it’s time to kick things up a notch or two…
