Sony London: The Getaway 3 & Eight Days for PS3 Not Cancelled

250°
258w ago - Last year Sony Computer Entertainment announced that it cancelled production on two PlayStation 3 titles in development at the Sony London Studio, namely The Getaway 3 and Eight Days.

Just over a month ago some related video and media from the titles surfaced, and today GameSpot is reporting that The Getaway 3 and Eight Days are not abandoned after all!

To quote from an interview with Sony Studio London's Nicolas Doucet:

"I would not say they have been abandoned, just put to one side. Much work had been done. The studio just wanted to focus on its strengths, EyeToy and SingStar. Given the potential of EyePet, priorities have been changed, but the other projects aren't dead yet. Ultimately, the decision [to put those games to one side] has benefited everyone."

He then goes on to describe that Studio London have one other game in development but gives no details. He describes it as a "different concept".

264w ago - Today some screens and a video courtesy of hibikinaruto via YouTube is available from cancelled PS3 title Eight Days.

To quote: You may recall hearing early last year that Sony ceased development on both The Getaway and Eight Days in order to shift resources to projects closer to completion.

Shortly after some test footage of Eight Days was released by a former Sony London employee and today we've revived even more media.

Below you'll find a test trailer of one nasty looking crash as well as screens that reveal celebrity talent such as Ving Rhames, Gary Oldman and Dennis Hopper were involved with the title.

289w ago - Screenshots and documents of an early Red Steel 2 prototype for Nintendo Wii have been leaked.

Ubisoft Montreuil - the division which created the first game in the series - was initially in charge of the title.

However, Ubisoft Paris took over the project when development ceased in October 2007 over concerns of the game's quality.

Ubisoft Paris is now working on a "new" version of Red Steel 2, which should be on the way this year.

Video: Cancelled PS3 Exclusive FPS 'Redwood Falls' Footage

50°
291w ago - Redwood Falls was a zombie shooter first announced way back in 2006, exclusive to Sony's PS3 console.

Late last year, the title was put on indefinite hold by developer Kuju Entertainment, citing a lack of funds to continue the project.

Redwood Falls separated itself with it's gruesome damage system, allowing players to shoot or cut off pieces of flesh to get to the zombies vital organs.

The video shown was from early in development, when the title was still set to be multiplatform. It sets the mood of the game, going from a creepy forest to a desolate pier.





Things heat up, showing some of the game's combat mechanics against some sort of massive creature. Redwood Falls definitely seems to have been influenced by John Carpenter's The Thing, both in terms of the isolated atmosphere and the appearance of the creatures.

In any case, Redwood Falls looks really impressive, and it makes you wonder how games like this get canned while games like Shell Shock 2 make it all the way to the market.
 

Unanounced Air Combat Game 'Stormbirds' Cancelled by THQ

50°
297w ago - An unannounced air combat game titled "Stormbirds," in development by Juice Games, was recently cancelled by THQ, according to former Juice artist Greg Calvert.

Stormbirds was set for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC before THQ apparently got cold feet. As a result, the team of over 30 developers was laid off by Juiced owner THQ.

"The game was in the same genre as Ace Combat and HAWX," wrote Calvert in a recent blog post. "THQ deemed the project too high risk, [and] as a result the entire team were made redundant on the 1st of December 2008."

Juice Games was acquired by THQ in 2006. The developer is best known for the "Juiced" series of racing titles.

Rather than see the fruits of their labors go to waste, some renders (below) from the Stormbirds project have been released by both Calvert and Steven Kerswell of CG studio RealtimeUK, along with an intro cinematic which is available from the link at the top of the article.
