    PlayStation Norway posted this picture on Facebook, which is of the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen. The words across blanking out his face 'uutforsket' translates to 'unexplored'. People are suggesting this has something to do with Uncharted, DLC or a new game.

    I forgot
    Most likely Uncharted. Whether it be some new game or just some DLC I have no clue, but it's definitely Uncharted.

    I thinks it's a new COD. Seems likely most.

    Source code reveals that the website could possibly have been made by Christian Calmar who works for PlayStation and is the owner of Bifrost Productions who makes websites, music, etc (Bifrost name is also in the source)

    Probably a long-shot, but N20 E59 points at the exact center of the Arabian Sea and KL is short for Kuala Lumpur. :P

    EDIT: That said, it could just as well be S20 E59, which is close to Mauritius and Madagascar (also somewhat in proximity to Kuala Lumpur), N20 W59, which is the area of the Bermudas or S20 W59 which is on the border of Paraguay... Still, KL really suggests Kuala Lumpur to me...

    Maybe they can finally give some goddamn multiplayer to Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

    I don't have the game but I thought it was so silly to cut the one thing people started loving on Uncharted for a console meant to blur the lines between console quality and handheld quality. The game already shows off the Vita's graphics and controls, why can't it show that it's a competent multiplayer platform too?

    Most likely it's DLC though.

    Ostoen Island, Norway. Makes sense - it's the Norwegian department doing the teasing lol.

    Please, go ahead. :)

    I'm glad I could be somewhat helpful.

    EDIT: Google Maps seems to be a little bi*ch when you type in "Ostoen" as on the teaser map and tries to correct it to "Ostøya", type in "Ostøya, Bærum, Norway" and it will find the exact spot. Not sure why it corrects it like that but it's definatelly the same Island, in fact, a different map says it's indeed "Ostoen" so perhaps it's just a difference in spelling or "Ostoen" was a name used in the "Olden Days". I wouldn't know, I'm not from Norway. ^^;

    My innitial suspicion that this has something to do with sea travel are slowly becomming solidified...

    Also...

    Also...

    Nansen was born in Christiania which is shown on the forementioned map (it's Christiania Fjord afterall).

    ...I must be super-bored for searching like this...

    Yes. I'm just not quite sure of the time period, which would make research much, much easier. It's easy to pin-point a place on the map, it's convinient that Nansen was born there but if you don't know the time period, you can never be sure if they mean "the ship" Nansen or "the person" Nansen. This could be either about the journey to the Pole or about something else, entirely.

    @[member='Foxi4']: Even though you dropped the idea of Kuala Lumpur, I just wanted to say that KL stands for denoting that it's the time :) almost like XX:XX O'clock

    KL's time zone is GMT+8

    KL 20:59 = 8:59PM (GMT+8)

    :wtf:

    Why would PlayStation Norway refer to another regions time zone? But yeah as Foxi4 said, it's probably about the polar expedition
