Sony Tease Game With A Knitting Old Man

By Spencer . August 27, 2010 . 4:32am


Not to be outdone by the Square Enix SaGa tease, Sony opened a countdown site… with a knitting old man. Up top, the page says “amimono” on top, which also means knitting in Japanese.


The countdown ends this Thursday. Any guesses before Famitsu scans leak the news on Tuesday?

    Ok, so Don Corleone decided he should start doing his own stuff, I don’t see what the problem is =PI really can’t make a guess, but it has me interested. Looks mysterious.

    Knitting godfather… soft side of a boss

  • I think I know what this is. It’s a PSP game by Level-5, titled Ushiro.

    • Level 5 doesn’t even have a website for Ushiro anymore. And while the “feel” of the wikipedia image is somewhat similar, everything else we’ve seen of Ushiro has a much less realistic art style.

      …All that said, I hope you’re right, somehow.

    Knitting a sackboy is going around. I hope its something new related to LBP.

    I did a decompile of the flash site and was greeted by someone. Sackboy.Unless Sony is just throwing in random franchises into their flash sites, I think this might be the Japanese announcement of Little Big Planet 2.

    EDIT: Here’s the logo I got from the decompile:

      Cool find! But if that’s it, I’m disappointed. And what’s with the old man, where does he fit in LBP? A little out of place, in my opinion.

      • I know. The whole feel of this countdown site is nothing like LBP, even the knitting is a stretch. Major disappointment here. I hope its just them trying to throw us off.

    • It looks like it’s for LBP2.
      As the countdown goes, he knits more, and I can definitely see a leg and a body with a zipper now. If that’s not a part of Sackboy then I have no idea what it is…

    I see the guy next to him is just standing there, but I can’t tell what the other guy is doing.

    Even though the picture seems grim in atmosphere, the actual page almost has a… spunky or slightly cute vibe and touch from the font used and the actual knitting animation.

    I’m not sure what to think.
