137w ago - SCEA's Santa Monica Producer Tsubasa Inaba has confirmed today that The Last Guardian and Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection for PS3 are officially delayed.
To quote: SCEA can confirm that we are officially delaying release of Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection as well as The Last Guardian from their respective launch timeframes of Spring '11 and Holiday '11. We will provide more information regarding release timing at a later date.
Here are a few words from The Last Guardian Director/Game Designer, Fumito Ueda:
I announced at last year's Tokyo Game Show that the release timing of The Last Guardian which is currently being developed would be holiday 2011.
However, to provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio's obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing.
All the members of my production team are working together at a fast pace to develop and release the game in First Party Studio quality.
I sincerely apologize to all the customers who have been waiting for "The Last Guardian" for so long, but I beg for your patience. I will also announce the new release timing at a later time.

To quote: Fumito Ueda is a name well known to most PlayStation fans. After directing the iconic PS2 games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, Ueda-san fast became one of the most celebrated figures in international game development.
Now he's working on a new game, the boy-beast buddy adventure The Last Guardian. If you missed the new trailer released one week ago at the Tokyo Game Show, you can watch it below.
While in Tokyo, I had the pleasure of speaking with Ueda-san about The Last Guardian and his upcoming PS3 compilation Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection.
I knew that getting a lot of firm details about a game as enigmatic and ambitious as The Last Guardian would be no easy task, so I decided to focus my questions on learning more about how the game plays, its core mechanics, and nuances I spotted in the trailer. Ueda-san's replies provide a rare glimpse into one of 2011′s most intriguing games.
Sid Shuman: How would you describe The Last Guardian to somebody who had never seen it before?

To quote: I'm here to give you the lowdown on Crystal Dynamics' latest offering Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
In case you haven't seen any LCGoL news over the last few weeks and months, here's the skinny. I have decided to boil the key info down into bullet points because I like to waffle.
"Wait... what?" - Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light isn't a Tomb Raider?!
Crystal Dynamics are currently working on two projects. One of them is Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, the other one is another game which I can't mention or I'd get sacked *cough* Tomb Raider *cough*.
The studio had a chance to really experiment and do something new and exciting with LCGoL. As a result they've crafted an arcade style digital download that draws on all the fundamental aspects you'd associate with Lara (including great puzzles) but also added some fresh elements. It is made of win. It really is made of win...
I had the good fortune of demoing LCGoL at E3 this year. Everyone who got their hands on the game enjoyed...
