Sony ‘waiting for right time’ to reintroduce The Last Guardian

Plus, Yoshida on Agent and Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

The announcement of PlayStation 4 has come and gone, and rumors of The Last Guardian‘s switch to Sony’s next-gen console are still unconfirmed.

Asked if the game was still a PlayStation 3 title after last night’s PlayStation 4 reveal during a roundtable media session today (via GameSpot), Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said, “I’m not ready to talk about it. Sorry. Because we’ve broken promises [before], we are waiting for the right time to reintroduce The Last Guardian.”

And what about Rockstar’s Agent, announced at E3 2009 and never heard from since, or Square Enix’s Final Fantasy Versus XIII, announced at E3 2006 and last heard from in January 2011? (Though, Square Enix confirmed production was still ongoing in July last year.)

“You are asking the wrong person,” said Yoshida. “I have some knowledge, but I’m not in a position to talk about it.”

Was no one able to track down Shinji Hashimoto last night?!

    Two Hashimotos at the same show and nobody could get some Versus info? lol

  • E3 or bust

    edit: hopefully games like versus, tlg, and agent are cross gen ps3/ps4. So the possibility of getting overshadowed by all the next-gen game isn’t an issue for the developers.

  • Ragiacrus

    relieved that the project is still being continued. I would buy Last Guardian for PS4 or PS3

  • Locksus

    expecting a release date announcement at E3

  • Heartless ㅤ

    Shinji went all the way around the world to make an announcement of an annoucement, and no one asked him about Versus XIII? Wth media?

    • Raiyu

      He’s a busy guy man.

    • I can’t imagine many media people care as much about Versus, a seven year-old non-game, compared to SE fans. Can’t blame them.

  • Bloodios

    At least update the official website with a new trailer or something…

    As for Final Fantasy Versus XIII, well, I made this link the homepage for all of my browsers (if that’s saying anything):      •

    only game I really care for is vs13,and I hope to god it comes out on ps3,because im not getting the ps4,to much gimmick and bullshitt for me.
    its like taking phones,tablets,tv,pc,streaming,socialnetworks,its just to much stuff.when can a console just be a game consol and nothing more.

    • AdamBoy64

      They might have an option where you can get the console just to start the disc automatically.

      You’ll cut out most of what you don’t want by doing that.
      I’m the same – I want all my consoles to just get me into the game as quick as they can.

      • Even the PS3 has auto disk start

        • AdamBoy64

          Yes. So you’d expect the PS4 should as well.
          It was the main feature I missed from the Wii.

    • We’re in an age where nothing is singular it has to encompass everything. That doesn’t mean the console isn’t meant for gaming because that’s exactly what it is for that’s why they reiterated that point many times last night. I’m sure people aren’t complaining about cellphones being “too much” now a days it just comes with the tech territory.

      And if you think about it Sony’s consoles always did more: The PS1 played CDs the PS2 played DVDs it’s online reasonable that with internet on the console comes everything that comes with it

    • What was a gimmick about it? You people really are fucking stupid. So yo will miss out on later FF games after vs13? Yeah that’s stupid.

    • Peacenutman

      You do know those “gimmicks” are just optional features right? Just like party chat on xbox. And I’m pretty sure some other people are excited for those features, I know people who solely chose xbox over ps3 just because party chat/cross game chat.

    • So buy the console, and just play games on it.

      Crazy concept.

      PS3 sucks with gimmicks Netflix, YouTube, Facebook integration, so dumb. Shitty console with gimmicks. /sarcasm

  • Prodigy-X

    FF Versus XIII, Agent, & The Last Guardian were probably moved to PS4. We’ll probably hear something at E3 2013.

    • rockman29

      And people got mad at me for suggesting it…. >.>

      • Prodigy-X

        Don’t know why, I mean they have to save the big guns for E3 against Microsoft.

        • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

          MS have lost already if you ask me. Gears 4, Gears Kinect, Forza 6 and Halo 5 won’t have a higher impact than what Sony has shown already, I’m afraid.

  • It’s never coming now im sure

  • People saying E3. No show at E3. WAIT FOR TGS!!! It’s hard to care about this anymore.

  • Massacred

    LITERALLY the 3 games I am most excited for. Please do not disappoint Sony’s E3 conference

  • Zackattacks

    E3 SONY! E3 SONY! you better have these 3 games!!!!

  • Talk about false advertisement with the PS3… yeah he knows something but he keeps his mouth shut so people wont think twice before buying a PS3 because they think they will play TLG and FFVS.

  • All 3 studios got together and decided to combine all 3 games into one game.

    The new name is – The Last Agent XIII – Fantasy Guardian

    It’s a dance game that you play with the move controller. xD

  • Pekola

    “we’ve broken promises” that sounds worrying. Of course he won’t say anything because this game is probably one of their trump cards.

    This will probably move onto being a PS4 launch title or at best be released on both the PS3 and PS4.

  • I don’t know why anyone cares about Agent. It’s the very definition of vaporware.

    Where as the other two are consistently said to be in development. While Agent is not talked about at all, and it seems like no one wants to ask R* about it. So all we get are Sony people saying, “Ask Rockstar” basically.

    Hoping VS XIII turns into FFXV on PS4 (maybe PS3 and PS4). And hope that LG is moved to PS4 to make development easier, since they seem to be having issues.

  • Aldridge517

    People are starving for news on The Last Guardian. The “right time” is ASAP. Preferable E3 2013

  • PrinceHeir

    The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Metal Gear Solid Ground Zero/Phantom Pain, Ender’s Project!!

    gonna be a beast!!!!!
