I'm really hype up for this since I have been waitng for a Next Gen game and I hope the gameplay & graphics are good not on a last gen level like that one Gundam game for the PS3.

Eva doesn't lend itself well outside of these text heavy adventure games since the show is so character based, unlike something like Gundam.

Now if they tried to make... an anima game.... heh.

I could be wrong, but I think the PS3 game ad is implying it has something to do with Misato and is about Rebuild? O_o

Now THAT would be awesome.

EDIT: Uploaded those pics here:

Thanks to Logan for the link: http://kotaku.com/5269845/evangelion-game-coming-to-ps3-does-it-involve-the-father-of-playstation-yes

The announcement reads, "The shape of a new report. Misato Katsuragi info plan. News will change with the PS3..."


Hmmmmm.

I really really hope the game would include playing as Misato. That would be SO badass.

I was thinking that, now THAT would be a hilarious idea for a game. Wake Misato up, make her drink beer each day, have her come up with battle plans while drunk. :lol:

...Wait... >_>

But the game doesn't needs to be character focused. I don't think to many people would shed tears if this PS 3 project would turn out to be a visually intense mecha action game featuring the Evangelions. Choose your favorite oni-like engine of destruction, and tear shit up in a graphically engaging environment, rendered to you by the Almighty Black Monolith of Doom!

Also, this will be a Rebuild based game. And going by what we have seen so far (even if it's so little), i think it is safe to say that Rebuild will considerably crank up the epic level compared to the original, thus lending itself even better to an action heavy game.

Though the Misato Raising Project is not a bad idea....

Yes but it's limited unless they add in a ton of unique content not found in the animes, manga, etc. The battles are generally against a single angel, and theres not a ton of angels. Outside of 1 on 1 fights you will have multiple evas on one angel.

If they just ignore the source material a bit and went more into the mecha aspects they could make a fun action game though I'm sure, hence me saying something like Anima would be good source of material for a game since it seems so much more focused on mecha action with all kinds of new units, weapons, etc.

Apparently, it's not a game but a headlines service. I found this info at Vandal.net forum:

This latest adaptation of the Evangelion franchise is a fancy news reader for your PS3. For a monthly fee, you'll be able to get the latest news read to you by Misato, one of the primary characters in the Evangelion franchise. Topics of coverage include politics, the economy, sports, anime, movies, and other areas.
This experimental service will be available starting June 6 via PlayStation Store. To use it, you'll have to purchase a News License, which costs 800 yen for 30 days service


And pictures:

O bother..I wanna get my news read by such a hotty but sadly I have a 360 who is currently acting up back there! Ya, I'm talking to you 360!

If it is for the PS2, that should not be a problem to get.

Guess it's more promotional material for the coming movies, wonder how long they would keep it going. Is it really voiced by Misato? Wonder if they would really get the VA to do this for a long period of time or get someone else to do the voice, or it's simply just text?

It sounds cool, but it's kind of anti-climactic since i was hoping it was an actual game. There's really no reason I'd want to import this at all, even if there was a viable way to do it since I don't care about Japanese news and I don't speak or read Japanese.

It will be on the PSN store not disc it seems. So you would just need to have a JP compatible account set up on your ps3 to get the software.
