not much has been heard about it at all. Between this game and 8 days, people are speculating they may just end up as tech demos and never become games.

It won't be a download--it will be a retail game to be released late this year/early 2008. I don't know too much about it--the developers have been very tight-lipped--but I am really looking forward to playing this game.

What little I've heard about it indicates it's going to be a nature simulation along the vein of the Wii's Endless Ocean, only set in Africa instead of underwater.

Not particularly something I'm interested in, but maybe there's someone out there that is...

It's a standalone game but there may be an Afrika space within home.

Nothing 'new' to share except perhaps some stuff people haven't explored yet:

Rhinos taking a poop, because as a proud owner of a robo hamster it just wouldn't be the same without good ol stinky poop to make it realistic.

Hopefully there's some sort of zombie breakout or killer pride of lions in there, 'cause if it's just about driving around and taking pictures of CGI animals, I can't see me playin' it!

That's awesome. Like a next-gen real animal PokeMon Snap... Although deep down I was waiting for the music to just cut out and someone to pull out a gun... Would have been quite the statement.

Glad I'm not the only person here to have played Pokemon Snap!

I spent way too much on the US import and adapter cart back in the day.

Default Does anyone know what Afrika is supposed to be?

Remember almost 2 years ago when Afrika was announced at E3 06, I mean what the hell is it supposed to be? Is it a hunting game (not likely), is it a photography game (possible from TGS 07 trailer), a nature reserve sim similar to Zoo Tycoon or a wildlife sim like EA's Spore (hopefully, one, the other or both)? Sony hasn't really brought out any real facts about the game, only that it'll be set in Africa and it'll have wildlife of the Savanah. What do you think it'll be?

Apparently, it's a photography sim.

It's like Pokemon Snap without the Pokemon

I'm thinking Pokemon Snap, not on rails mixed with roleplaying elements like upgrades/new equipment to make life easier (quicker travel with better vehicles, GPS) and get better photos (moveable arm platforms fixed to vehicle), allow you to take nocturnal shots (vehicle lights, nightvision etc). Doesn't look like the sort of game to have any violence but if you were also a park ranger you could scare off poachers by 'shooting' their faces. Otherwise face off with them Ryu Hazuki-style and get home by 11 otherwise you won't get your pocket money and a clip round the ear.
