The Last Guardian still exists

Remember PlayStation 3 exclusive Team Ico title The Last Guardian? It’s ok if you don’t – because the team that brought you ICO and Shadow of the Colossus has been rather quiet about the game that wowed just about everybody at E3 all the way back in 2009. It’s been months since we heard anything apart from the departure of team lead Fumito Ueda. He’s still working on the game in a freelance capacity, and promises there’ll be news to share.

Sony fined for PSN outage

Hey! Remember the year before last, when Sony’s PSN was taken down after a string of hacks that left 77 million people’s personal data compromised? I’d nearly forgotten the whole thing, and had assumed people were over it by now. It’s back in the news though, because Sony’s being fined by the UK’s Information Commissioners Office – who say it’s “The most serious breach” they’ve ever had to deal with.

Sony confirms Team Ico Boss’ departure

It was rumoured last month that Fumito Ueda, lead designer of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and as yet unreleased The Last Guardian was leaving Sony. That speculation can be put to rest, as Sony’s confirmed the venerated designer’s departure.

Rumour: Team Ico lead leaves Sony

The rumour mill reports that Fumito Ueda. the creator of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and the yet to be released Last Guardian has left Sony.

It won’t affect that last, highly anticipated game’s release (any more)  though, because he’ll finish up the project as a freelancer.

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection Review – Penultimate Guardian

There’s nothing like a great game from a older console to make you revise your opinion on current-gen games. The fact that this bundle of beauty has two such games only makes me think I’m right to note (some serious) problems with the gaming industry at present (as others on this site have too). The Team Ico collection – or, it’s full and proper title: “Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection: Remastered in High Definition (Exclusive Behind the Scenes Videos and More)” – is here, returning like an awesome Navy Seal uncle who laughs at petty family squabbles, after he spent years fighting tanks with a spoon.

Team ICO HD Collection delayed?

Darling readers, I’m not entirely sure how to break this news to you, but I’ll do it as gently as I can. You may need to sit down for this: we could have to wait until next year for the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD collection. According to online retail giant Amazon.com, a new release schedule has the anticipated collection marked with a tentative “2012” instead of April 2011. This news comes from G4, but DiedAgain.com also points out another possibility: if the HD collection has been delayed, does this mean that The Last Guardian has been pushed back as well?

Last Guardian confirmed for TGS

Despite having been unveiled at last year’s E3, The latest from Fumito Ueda’s Team ICO was curiously absent from this year’s event, as well as the euro-centric Gamescom.

You’ll be happy to know though that Sony has been confirmed the game will be shown off at the Tokyo Game Show – which kicks off next week.

The Playstation 2 turns 9

The Playstation 2 turns 9

Yesterday saw the birthday of two iconic media giants. The first is Noddy, Enid Blyton’s little wooden man of dubious sexual orientation. Also celebrating its birthday yesterday was Sony’s Playstation 2, one of the most successful gaming consoles in the history of the universe.

Some of my very favourite gaming moments happened on that machine, home to some of the best games ever made; Games like God of War, Okami, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and Silent Hill 2. It’s a console that, despite its age, is still wildly popular today.

Tell us some of your most treasured Playstation 2 moments in the comments – or if you’re so inclined, your favourite Noddy ones.

Team ICO to reveal new title “soon”

Many of us were hoping to see a big announcement from Sony at E3 or Leipzig 08 about the new game from Team ICO, the team that brought us gems like Shadow of the Colossus and Ico. Sony's Shuhei Yoshida, when asked about whether or not the title will be ready to be shown by the Tokya Game Show, had the following to say:
