Sony's mysterious Afrika has been light on details, but a Japanese retail listing could have revealed some details.
It claims that the player will "be a photo journalist taking pictures on foot, by car or by air balloon."
Furthermore, "you can unlock real non-CG pictures and rare research footage of the animals as you encounter more animals in game and build up your 'Animal Library.'"
The retail listing pointed to a Japanese release date of 8/28/08, but this is in no means a confirmation.
Our recommendation: just buy Planet Earth on Blu-Ray.
