GameStop has issued a statement apologising for concern caused after customers reportedly received pre-recorded messages announcing that their pre-order for The Last Guardian had been culled from the chain’s system and canceled.

Yasuhide Kobayashi, VP of Sony’s Japan Studio and head of Last Guardian’s development, told DICE Summit Asia today that Japanese games-makers must now appeal to western tastes or die.
“There are so many issues we have to solve, and the biggest challenge is that the market in Japan is shrinking – they key is gaining success in the US and Europe,” he said.
“At the time of the original PlayStation the Japanese market was one third of the global market, and production costs weren’t that high – so we were able to generate profit from that market alone.
“But now we’re in the era of the PlayStation 3, and the Japanese market is only one fifth of the global market – when it comes to production costs, those are swelling, so it means that unless we gain success in the overseas market our studio will go bankrupt. It’s a crisis we recognise,” he added.
Kobayashi admitted that Last Guardian was named as such to appeal to US and European gamers.
Lots more on GI.

From the piece:
Interacting with the eagle appears to be one of the central aspects to the game. You’re free to touch the eagle whenever you like. Its reactions will differ depending on where you touch it.
There’s a care aspect for the eagle as well. You can feed the eagle and remove spears and arrows that have pierced it. Ueda feels that the development staff will have to take care to strike a balance and make sure the care aspects do not becoming a chore.
Also, if you think that it’s a rather strange looking eagle, then you’ll find Ueda agrees with you: “It’s important that it be ‘a strange creature,’” explained Ueda. “We made sure and not make it too balanced.”

Ueda’s new game is called Last Guardian, not TRICO.
The demo shown in today’s Sony E3 press conference saw a feather falling from the sky, the wind blowing and a bird chirping on the stone before Mr Griffin popped in.
It was largely the same Trico trailer that was leaked previously, but there was a new bit chunked on the end. We’re assured a lot of new atr work has been done over old movie.
It showed a boy on Griffin’s head leaping from the ledge.
The boy is then picked up by guardians in full armor, then lying under the protective wing of the Griffin.
