Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time Offers Pre-Rendered Graphics

Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time Offers Pre-Rendered Graphics 100°
293w ago - Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time finally brings the graphical quality of pre-rendered CGI to video game consoles.

Insomniac's hard work has finally produced CGI quality graphics rendered in real-time on the PlayStation 3. Sure, it might not quite be at Wall-E level yet, but Toy Story 2 quality pre-rendered graphics have definately been reached.

To quote: Insomniac Games, who have produced more games for the PS3 than any other developer (Resistance 1, Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction, Resistance 2) brings their fourth game, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time (or what they like to call Clock Blockers) with an even more polished engine.

The pre-defined animation and limited scope of the cutscenes mean that Insomniac can pull more out of the PS3 for their real-time rendered cutscenes in A Crack in Time, though the gameplay graphics are just as spectacular.

The latest gameplay footage of A Crack in Time video is below also:

Sony: PS3 Offers Unprecedented Value, Secures Blu-ray Format 100°
309w ago - Sony's Jack Tretton has commented that the PS3 will help secure the Blu-ray format just as the PS2 did with the DVD format.

He also expressed that the PS3 offers 'unprecedented value' and as such there are no immediate plans to reduce the price of the PS3.

GDC '09: Sony Offers Huge Incentive for PSN Exclusivity 50°
310w ago - Remember that biased and irrational media blowup concerning the PSN bandwidth fee? Yeah, well, who thinks publishers won't want to put their games on the PSN now?

The first game to take advantage of the deal is the recently released Burn Zombie Burn!, and Sony says they're "looking for a great many more titles," so pay attention, self-publishers! Chris Eden, Sony development relations manager, says they're ready to put their money where their mouth is:

"It's all very well for us as platform holders to say 'put all your money into PlayStation Network, it's a fantastic idea', but are we prepared to put or money where our mouth is? The answer is yes. We're looking for a number of great games, and in return for exclusivity we'll match your development budget with guaranteed royalties."

Microsoft Still Offers Boxes for Dead Systems at No Charge 400°
313w ago - A story reported earlier today via The Consumerist stated Microsoft had stopped offering free boxes to consumers to ship dead Xbox 360 consoles to replacement centers was recently cleared up.

Here's the official statement:

"Reports that Microsoft now requires consumers to find their own packaging for sending product to Xbox 360 customer support are inaccurate.

Our policy allows customers to choose whether they would like Microsoft to ship them a box and shipping label or print an electronic label and ship their console using their own packaging in an effort to speed up the repair process." – Microsoft Spokesperson

There you have it, if your system dies - hopefully sometime within the three-year warranty - Microsoft will still give you a free box, complete with packaging, to send your Xbox 360 off to virtual heaven.
