Sony 2009 gaming rumors put MotorStorm and LittleBigPlanet on PSP and God of War 3

Details on a host of PlayStation 3 and PSP games have been leaked, including info on God of War 3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Killzone 2, Motorstorm PSP and LittleBigPlanet PSP . . . and that’s not all! Numbers for the PlayStation Network were divulged as well as the news that a PS3 price cut will be coming in March of 2009.

But let’s take things one a at a time. The anonymous source who did the leak claims that he attended the Sony Computer Entertainment Staff Annual Briefing which is where he picked up all this information (man would I hate to be him right about now).

Sony naturally followed up with a statement of their own, saying: “Information discussed within the confines of internal company meetings is confidential and subject to change. We do not have anything to announce at present and we do not comment on rumor and speculation.” So all this should be taken with a grain of salt, albeit, a bigger grain given that all of this is highly plausible and could definitely be true.

According to the source, this was mostly aimed at the European market, and the President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, David Reese, discussed the harsh economic climate and detailed how they would make the PS3 “more competitive” after March (although who knows if that applies globally or just to Europe). He claimed that the PlayStation Network has generated over 150 Million pounds and that Sony will invest heavily in the PSN in 2009.

Pre-Order God of War 3 for PS3Easily the biggest news of the conference was God of War 3 info! They showed off a new trailer which was supposedly so impressive that he couldn’t tell if it was CG or in-game. “Some of it looked like it could be in-game action because of the camera angles, but it all looked so good that it couldn’t be. CGI or not, everyone was pumped up by this,” the source said. The trailer apparently shows Kratos battling skeletons and Cyclops’, riding an eagle, and then killing the eagle after dismounting from it. It ends with Kratos staring ominously up at a dark cavern that is believed to be Mount Olympus.

Corroborating this, at least in part, is the creator of God of War himself, David Jaffe. Although he no longer is involved with the series (he left Sony in 2007), he posted a new blog in which he gives his colored opinion of the game, which he was recently shown. To quote: “Dudes and dudettes, f***ing WAIT till you see the amazing graphics…just f***ing wait,” Jaffe writes. “I ain’t no fan boy but this mother f***ing game looks like nothing you’ve ever played…and you can hold me to that when this thing hits and when they start showing gameplay footage. It looks like a painting come to life — it’s THAT good looking.” David Jaffe also states that God of War III looks better than Gears of War 2! High praise indeed!

Pre-Order Killzone 2 for PS3Also shown in trailer form was the intro for Killzone 2 and a clip of what we now know to be Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which was just CONFIRMED (which helps in corroborating the rest of this news and the fact that it is all likely true). Graphically, Uncharted 2 wasn’t as huge a leap from the first game as say, God of War 2 to God of War 3, but that’s to be expected given that they are both PS3 titles. The source apparently said, ” [Uncharted 2] Looks the same as Uncharted 1, not a bad thing.”

Finally, the source confirms that LittleBigPlanet is headed to the PSP (and has been in development for four months already) and that a PSP Motorstorm is also in the works.
