Over the weekend, early animation footage for SCE London Studios’ canceled title Eight Days leaked onto the net, revealing some impressive use of technology that has us wishing the game was still in production.
According to Sony Computer Entertainment's Shuhei Yoshida, Eight Days went under review for cancellation as the game lacked an online mode; a factor that did not mesh well with Sony’s plans to move towards more online-orientated projects.
Check out the tech demo below:

wow that is very impressive. i wish the game was still under production, but if not maybe the can lend this technology to the Naughty Dog team for the next Uncharted.

The game doesn't have to have online to be a great game you know. This is why I hate the next-gen so much it actually started with Xbox. It's like everytime a game goes under review finished, or not it sucks if it doesn't have an online. Personally I think some of you guys need to get out in the sun more cause all this online **** wouldn't even be an issue if no play games that heavy.

that was amazing, never seen a cover system like that. Wake up SCE London Studios’ that game have alot of promise. As Clarick said may naughty dog would use this technology for the next uncharted.

psn id: gingo.... thats quite a poor reason to cancel a game because it doesn't have an online part to it, i think they should go back and finish this cause the animations look awesome

meh I didn't like the animations were he slides over the obstacles, looks to slick, totally unnatural, the ideas are rather good but it could have been improved - and btw online is not a MUST for a game...stupid to cancel this game

untill now ... i dont belive that they really cancelled Eight Days ... every thing about it is so cool .... the pepole behind the cancellation should be SHOT ON THE HEAD

Thats some good animation right there, all flows together very well, and to cancel a game just because it lacks online is just wrong, not every game has to have online, some people still enjoy just single player storys.

looks quite cool but i think the animations would get kind of repetitive really

the cover system reminds me of uncharted. sony definetly has management problems. it has so much games that dont have online and does real well, they dont need to be microsoft and be the leading online driver.

all this online S%$# has been pissing me off. wtf!!! really WTF!!! this is going to sound f'd up but I wish somehow all connections would go down. People barly even "beat" games anymore. I have about 4 "new" racing games (I wont mention any names) and I cant even play with people who come over! Why do I have 4 PS3 controllers why! I call BullS H I T.

it gotta be more to it to why this game got cancel but if its mainly because no online then Sony is crazy. its bad enough that Sony don't wanna buy third party exclusive but Sony canceling games and not founding them when they can be AAA games outrages

That is pretty good. Solid Snake meets Die Hard..lol.
Mirrors Edge meets Uncharted?
Although for me it would never have been a purchase as its a 3PS. I love to watch 3PS, but playing it is another matter. But in saying that, this seems to have offered what many games have been lacking. In fact, this is what StrangleHold promised to be & that failed miserably. If they made an FPS with this sort of movement (Mirrors Edge) then it would be fantastic for my tastes.
Its a shame it was cancelled even if it was only a 3PS. I just hope the ideas & tech it used are put to good use.
