Rumour: New Team ICO game won’t be shown at TGS08, new Halo game a cert

Wednesday, 8th October 2008 09:56 GMT By Patrick Garratt


We’ve now been told this three times in the past 24 hours: Sony will not show the new Team ICO game at Tokyo Game Show this week.

Our sources are solid, ladies and gentlebeans, so put your faith in this one.

Do keep your eye on the Microsoft keynote, though: that Halo Bungie “rumour” is getting firmer by the second.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

    Why, Sony? Why? WHY?

    100% on this, unless there’s been a great disturbance in the force.

    Bugger. Sony are supposed to have something like 14 games to unveil though, so hopefully there will be something quite special in there, but still, the lack of team ICO’s new title is hardly welcome.

    There’s no way they’re that stupid. I’m going for your source being wrong on this one.

    I’ll have a tenner on it.

    I think they probably are that stupid.

    If this is true, unless Konami shows Zone of the Enders 3 and is exclusive to the PS3…

    Sony = Fail.

  11. Tonka

    Do we know for sure that Team ICO has anything to show?

    #11 6 years ago

    I think I heard that Trico was shown behind closed doors at GC so….Sony are dicks

    #12 6 years ago
  13. Gamoc

    Team Ico are definitely working on something (I think it’s actually 2 or 3 games), I wish they’d show something already. I swear, when I see their games I will need to change my pants afterwards.

    Who are the sources pat?

    #15 6 years ago
  16. No_PUDding

    Seriously, Pat, were these Sony people telling you this?

    #16 6 years ago
  17. Johnny Cullen

    Pat, I’m gonna be honest.

    Just keep saying to yourself and everybody in here too to say the one word as well, say it with me…

    Johnny – :D

    Pud – Can’t say, I’m afraid. Got to protect the innocent, isn’t it.

    #18 6 years ago
  19. No_PUDding

    So it’s not a Sony person?

    #19 6 years ago
  20. mart

    Hehehe. As if he’s going to tell you one way or another. Stop asking!

    #20 6 years ago
  21. No_PUDding

    Shut up will you.

    Can you confirm if it was a Sony exec or not?

    #21 6 years ago
  22. ecu

    I believe this. I’d guess that they’re simply not ready to show it. Maybe they think their line up is strong enough without it, and they can save it for a boost at another time.

    #22 6 years ago
  23. absolutezero

    nudge nudge wink wink

    A friend of someone morriss knows told him Fable 2 is shit.

    100% accurate here.

    #23 6 years ago
  24. Psychotext

    lol… relax Pud, you’re going to have an seizure. What will be will be.

    #24 6 years ago
  25. No_PUDding

    Their lineup isn’t strong enoguh without, I can promise anyone that.


    Perhaps somethign in 2009. I will admit it, I am still hopeful this is hype defusing or giant NDA’s.

    #25 6 years ago
  26. ecu

    Maybe THEY THINK their lineup is strong enough without it. They’re probably just not ready to show it, no big deal. Whenever it’s ready, I’ll look forward to it.

    Although I kind of hope they keep delaying it just so I can LOL at Pud.

    #26 6 years ago
  27. mart

    lol indeed!

    #27 6 years ago
  28. Blerk

    It’s surprising how inconsistent Sony is in these matters. They quite happily announce MAG with a wonky pre-rendered ‘this is what it might look like when we’ve actually written it’ video.

    But then you have game like this that people are furiously anticipating and they won’t even tell us what it’s called. Or when it might be done. Or what it’s about. Or that it’s actually in development.

    #28 6 years ago
  29. Johnny Cullen

    Well, we do know it’s in Development :D

    #29 6 years ago
  30. Gekidami

    Indeed, its already confirmed to be in development, and i guess thats all that really should matter, wether they show it or not, dosnt mean they’ll finish it any faster, and why release a CG target-render when all Sony ever gets is criticism from doing that?

    #30 6 years ago
  31. Blerk

    I wasn’t suggesting that – I was giving an example of a ‘bad’ reveal of something that wasn’t ready. What I’m saying is, would it kill them to drop a logo and a couple of screenies? For the fans, like?

    #31 6 years ago
  32. Gekidami

    Didnt we get a pic of some round hole thing with a chain at one point? lol

    #32 6 years ago
  33. Johnny Cullen

    Yarp, we got a pic of a big massive chain going down a well.

    I think if it’s not gonna be revealed at TGS, it will most likely be revealed in next months EGM.

    They have this super massive reveal in their next issue stating the announcement is bigger then Manhattan with a pic of a field of flowers with a Sundial.

    Now, look at where that sundial is pointing at (in the scan), it’s pointing at 3. And that picture is a Team ICO esque screen so thats more then likely to be it should it not be at TGS.

    #33 6 years ago
  34. Blerk

    I’d love that to be true, but I can’t imagine a Western mag getting the scoop on it.

    #34 6 years ago
  35. Johnny Cullen

    Neither can I, especially EGM somewhat.

    Famitsu or OPM UK if they were going for the Western publications tbh.

    #35 6 years ago
  36. Gekidami

    EGM’s november issue dosnt have a R2, or GeoW2 review? By december they’ll be abit late… But anywho, very insteresting, the rumour parts got some gold in to, Kojima FPS?! 3rd party LBP DLC?!

    #36 6 years ago
  37. Blerk

    The KOTOR MMO announcement is October 21st. Could be that. Although I’ve no idea what sundials have to do with Star Wars.

    #37 6 years ago
  38. Johnny Cullen

    TBH, I dont think it’s KOTOR tbh.

    Team ICO or something to do with Final Fantasy VII.

    #38 6 years ago
  39. Blerk

    Oh, the 360 FFVII remake. Of course.

    #39 6 years ago
  40. No_PUDding


    Disney DLC was cofnirmed at one of the LBP showings.

    So that’s pretty cool.

    But yes, I know Sony have a TGS lineup that is good enough with what they have to announce but Team ICO man!!!

    Either way, I hope it’s revealed before this year is done!

    This news depresses me. Assuming it’s true (which I’m sure it is).

    VG247 gets backup:

    I prepare to be £10 poorer.

    #42 6 years ago
  43. No_PUDding

    Oh shit… The well known PS3vault says its true!!??

    This will be a copycat article.

    #43 6 years ago
  44. Freek

    MS pulled Halo from thier E3 lineup, so at this point I’ll believe anything is possibly not happening. How ever strange it may seem.

    #44 6 years ago
  45. morriss

    They’ve (PS3V) just nicked our story and not credited.

    #45 6 years ago
  46. Psychotext

    Shameful (if true).

    /buries tenner

    #46 6 years ago
  47. morriss

    Seems like too much of a coincidence to me.

    #47 6 years ago
  48. No_PUDding

    And a Korean Gamign site just leaked a Sony lineup list.

    Guess what’s on there.

    Still not 100% but there’s now a counter rumour.

    #48 6 years ago
  49. No_PUDding

    New Halo game a cert?

    Your source?

    #49 6 years ago
  50. Panipal2005

    @ NoPud

    Re Korean gaming site leak –

    Got links?

    #50 6 years ago
  51. No_PUDding

    @Panstre Go to TIG, dunno is Issun posted them.

    #51 6 years ago
  52. Panipal2005

    Oh yeah blerk, could I ask for elaboration on what these sources actually said, i.e. did they perchance shed light on why Sony would do something so blatantly fucking stupid?

    #52 6 years ago
  53. Psychotext

    So… what should I do with that tenner? =/

    #53 6 years ago
  54. Syrok

    Buy Iceland. :)

    #54 6 years ago
  55. Blerk

    Well, whaddya know. They were that stupid! :lol:

    #55 6 years ago
  56. pjmaybe

    Let’s face it though, they don’t NEED to announce anything.

    Just think, where’s the fun in making an official TGS announcement when you can make Team Ico fanboys go absolutely nuts with supposition for another year or so.

    (In all honesty, Team Ico could do a fucking Kart racer next and I’d probably still buy it)

    #56 6 years ago
  57. No_PUDding

    Hehe… had to come back and find this. Totally worth it.

    Man I was crazy infuriated.

    Everyone needs to go to watch the Where the Wild Things are, and comapre how similar the Last Guardian and it are.

    Right up to a Carter Burwell sound track xD (Not that TLG will have a Carter Burwell soundtrack – I hooe).
