“Mystery” BBC game yet to be revealed

By Patrick Garratt, Sunday, 20 July 2008 09:06 GMT

The BBC’s Darren Walter has confirmed on his blog that the “mystery” game he was shown by Sony in February was not seen in the company’s E3 conference.

So, sat in the audience in the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles at the Sony briefing I was really looking forward to seeing everyone’s reaction to the game.

As the briefing wore on I was beginning to wonder if it would ever appear.

But then Sony executive Jack Tretton said: “We have one final thing to show you.”

And I thought: This is it. This is the big reveal; finally I can be unburdened with this secret.

And on the big screen MAG appeared – the massively multiplayer online FPS game.

As it turned out: this was one of the games I had been shown some months before but under strict instruction I was not to write about it.

But this was not the game I was referring to. It still hasn’t been shown publicly.

TGS? Probably. More through the link.
