A new Sony video has popped up on Youtube and sparked an avalanche of rudderless speculation from rabid fans. The live-action trailer contains elements of various videogames, including LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear Solid and Twisted Metal.
Some of the references are incredibly subtle (a ghostly Kratos-esque apparition has been spotted faintly flashing up right at the end, for example) but they don't seem to point to any one game in particular.
Given the broad spectrum of references, I'm guessing that this will be hardware-related, and that some big PlayStation Vita news is on the cards. I could be completely wrong, but could a Western release date for Sony's handheld be arriving? We'll find out for sure next week.
In the meantime, you can play "Where's Waldo?" with all the videogame references in the above video. How many can you spot?
