Sony Leaking New PS3 Features With Trademarks

50°
383w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has began to register many new trademarks for US Patent and Trademark Office called Ember, SkyBlue, Carriage Return, and Race Day.

These new trademarks are going to be for new products which some believe could have an impact on either the PS3 or PSP in some way shape or form. These trademarks go hand in hand with the number of other products which went through the same process prior to release such as the games Snakeball, Operation Creature Feature, and others for the PlayStation Network and PlayStation Eye.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan added a new trademark called the Broadcasting Engine. It is believes that this is an effort by Sony to try and connect consumer products such as cell phones to the PS3 and PSP through the PlayStation Network.
 

PES 2008: Funniest clip ever?

50°
383w ago - Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 isn't actually out until Friday, but a video recording of what must be the oddest football accident ever has already hit YouTube courtesy of SoulPunish3r, tackling our funny bones in the process.

Luck, or bug? Who can be sure? It's likely that the mirthsome moment comes from the next-gen demo, like the one on PlayStation Network, which means if it is a bug it'll be ironed out of the final version. Which, to us, is a bit of a shame. Have a chuckle for yourself below...



 

Insider says PS3 Blacksite plagued with development trouble

50°
383w ago - IGN recently revealed that players the PS3 version of Blacksite will not have all the online features of the 360 version. On the 360 players will be able to play ranked and unranked matches, and have voice support features. However an insider claims that problems run much deeper than this.

He said "The PS3 version is experiencing issues and missed deadlines," and that it is likely the demo and full game will be delayed. "Midway isn't happy at all about the progress, and it's a story I've heard over and over this year across the industry when it comes to the PS3 and cross-platform titles," the insider states.

To quote: The Unreal Engine powers Blacksite, which presents the possibility that the engine itself is leading to development problems. Midway's other big PS3 releases of Stranglehold and Unreal Tournament 3 have also seen long delays.

Sadly, the problems with Blacksite: Area 51 only further the growing list of problematic multiplatform releases on the PS3, and could reinforce the qualms about working with the Unreal Engine among multiplatform developers.
 

Gran Turismo: Not easy to develop on PS3, PSP GT put aside

50°
383w ago - The man behind the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauch (from Polyphony Digital) said when interviewed by Joystiq that it's not that easy to develop on PS3 that they've had to put GT for PSP aside a little bit. On the PSP version he said "we are still working on it, but this will be after GT5 on PS3."

Gran Turismo is also one of the few games that run at 1080p and 60fps, he said that this was a must have because when you're driving at high speeds you must be able to see detailed objects in the distance. He also said they had ideas for PSP interactivity with the PS3, most notable was that he thought it was possible for someone on the PSP to compete in the same race with someone on the PS3.

To quote from the interview: Interactivity between PSP and PS3. One of the examples they showed at E3 two years ago was the idea of a rear-view mirror in a racing game... *laughs* ...so that example probably not being the best application of the PSP, have you considered any other kind of PSP interactivity with the PS3 and GT5?

Well, one example would be for people to utilize replays of their race experience. Take that outside the home, whereas at home you would need the PS3, but they can take that away and share. Another would be - and we would need to do further research, we're just talking ideals...
