PlayStation Europe definitely kicked the year off right after they unveiled a new video highlighting the many exclusives coming to the PS4 in 2017.
In addition to games such as Gran Turismo Sport, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and the PaRappa The Rapper remaster, the sizzle reel also includes a glimpse of Quantic Dream’s Detroit: Become Human, which had previously been tagged with a “TBA” release date.
Here’s the full list of games featured in the video:

The first big event of the 2017 “Video Game Calendar” will be PAX South, which will be held in San Antonio beginning on January 27. We’ll surely hear more about at least a few of these games then.
Media Molecule is well known among PlayStation fans for their whimsical approach to game development. But their next game, Dreams, is still a bit of a mystery. And even though I just watched an hour-long demonstration of the title, I’d say that statement still stands.
However, if you’re still intrigued by developer’s latest PS4 project, sit down with Coder Anton Mikhailov and Artist Kareem Ettouney as they build three cities using the game’s creation tools. And be sure to catch up on all of Media Molecule’s previously released Developer Diaries at their YouTube page.
A beta for Dreams will be available sometime this year, though the final release date is still unknown.
Media Molecule (the creators of LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway) has announced Dreams. Using the PS4 controller as a paintbrush, players will create their own surreal scene and bring it to life using performance capture. A video was shown of user-created dreams, ranging from a polar bear and her cub playing in the snow, to a futuristic car chase, to an adorable teddy bear laying waste to a horde of zombies.
Media Molecule showed a similar demo at the PS4’s initial reveal two years ago, but at the time, they considered the tech demo something of an experiment. I guess it’s a real game now.
A release window was not given, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
With LittleBigPlanet 3 in the hands of Sumo Digital, Media Molecule has moved on to a super secret PlayStation 4 project that they’re not ready to share yet. However, a recent rendering test resulted in the “trippy sequence of colourful nonsense” you see above. The developers also wanted to let us know that the trailer also include a “familiar face” from their tech demo from the PS4 announcement.
Personally, I think it looks like Fitz and The Tantrums’ “MoneyGrabber” music video..
Whatever it is, let’s hope that Media Molecule plans to announce their first PS4 project soon.
Media Molecule is working on a mystery project
Media Molecule, the team behind LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2, and the upcoming Tearaway have a second game in the works. But apparently, it’s a mystery!
The list of games on the developer’s website includes their previous titles as well as a question mark. The question mark links to the music video for “It’s A Mystery,” a minor hit for the UK band Toyah in 1981. Sadly, the lyrics aren’t much help:
It’s a mystery, oh, it’s a mystery
I’m still searching for a clue
It’s a mystery to me
A shot in the dark
The big question mark in history
Is it a mystery to you?
We’ll hopefully learn more about Media Molecule’s Question Mark during Sony’s “The Future” presentation on February 20.
