What is Singularity?
Superannuation has been on a roll lately with spotting curious domain registrations. As posted on Kotaku, it’s been discovered that Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream registered singularityps4.com back in November of last year, following the same URL naming convention used for the prior game’s website.
Currently, the studio has its PlayStation 3 title Beyond: Two Souls (pictured above) in development and, seemingly, this other project for Sony’s unannounced PlayStation 4. Superannuation picked up on the fact that Quantic Dream founder David Cage has cited the book The Singularity is Near as inspiration for the team’s Kara tech demonstration.
Not to trash Beyond, but I was significantly more interested in seeing the ideas presented in the Kara demo expanded into a full game. Could such themes of artificial intelligence be explored on Sony’s upcoming console? It seems entirely plausible.
