That teaser site

#1 Edited by Tebbit (4465 posts) -

Does anyone want to speculate on what the game is going to be? 
 

This pains me, because in New Zealand right now the time is 2.08PM, August 12th. DAMN YOU EDT! 
I'm betting on NEW IP!!! 
A link for you fine gentlemen 
EDIT: Am I going crazy, or is the infinity symbol tilted more than it was before?
SOMEONE CONFIRM

Infinite?

Is it the new Snake game? Oh God I've been wanting a sequel all my life.

That's clearly a track.  Biokart Racing.

Maybe it's some kind of survival horror spin on Snake. 
hopefully with Kinect support

Infinite Icarus?

Freedom Force: Infinite and Beyond.

I hope they brought the rights to Wipeout 2097, and are remaking it with ONLY the Icarus craft.

Although I'm more an Assegai man, that's still something I could get behind.

Totally pointless until the actual reveal, but it gets them on blogs.

Peter Molyneux's glorious liver spotted balls.

I swear there will be riots if this doesn't turn out to be something significant.

I just realised that the image actually shows a rotated and flipped S. 
S for System and S for Shock. 
Also, the game is revealed on the 12th. 1+2 = 3. 
Therefore, it is almost certain that the game will be System Shock 3.
 
:D

@BeachThunder: Well... okay then.  Kind of hope it's something else, though.

  System Shock 3

#19 Posted by Atomasist (2818 posts) -

I'm calling it, System Shock 4.

#20 Edited by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

It will be an Unreal Engine-based game, with a first person perspective that blurs the lines between action and RPG with some interesting narrative elements. I'll put money on it.

Now that I'm actually looking at the site, I'm starting to think it might be System Shock 8.

The infinite symbol is a metaphor for how better 4 is going to be infinitely better than 3.

There, I called it, it's Snakes On A Plane: The Game.

Assegai can turn like a Russian. Well, at least they could in Wip3out

I'm dying to know what this is. I kept thinking the reveal was today, but it's only for the press. Maybe we'll be fortunate and get some kind of leak before tomorrow's trailer.

I don't see how they would be working on System Shock if EA owns the IP.

I think it's everyone's dream that they'd make a new System Shock, but yeah, that whole EA owning the rights is a real stick in the mud. I think most people are hoping that 2K has secretly acquired the rights, or that Irrational is somehow making it as part of the EA partners program. I want to believe!!

Just awkward wishful thinking.
 
I guess Dead Space was pretty much SS3 anyway =|

If it's System Shock 3, it's going to be a shooter with regenerative health. Mark my words.

That would be too perfect for words.

Yep. But this time, with STYLE.

I posted this yesterday when the teaser sight was a hidden number 8:
 
 It's updated. Now showing a number 8 through a spotlight?
Is the number 8 a road? I can't tell.
 
Just wanted to pop in n say that I just listened to the latest Irrational podcast. They said it'll reveal the game and a trailer.
The podcast is full of music from Tim Davies Big Band, which- Nobody would hire an orchestra band to do a podcast. I personally think they're using music that was recorded the game. It's got a really amazon jungle vibe to it, with kind of a 50's swing, which I think suits their style of games a whole damn bunch, so it's plausible.
So if this game is set in the jungle, then I am a genius and I win.
Also I think this game might be about a golden-age comic super-hero type guy, cos that's what spotlights mean to me.
