Wal-Mart confirms $100 PS3 gift card YES, even MGS4 bundle

200°
350w ago - We have confirmed with Wal-Mart Corporate Communications that the company is currently offering a $100 gift card this week with the purchase of any Blu-ray player.

This applies to all PS3s, including the Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle available tomorrow. This re-confirms the information and documentation one of our reliable sources gave us two weeks ago.

After we made sure to ask about the MGS4 bundle this morning, Melissa O'Brien, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, told us, "Any Blu-ray player. Blu-ray. All of them."

She said that the deal is quite explicit in the Wal-Mart flyer for this week (an image of which we've placed after the break), and the deal is both online and in stores. We hope this clears up any confusion on the matter.

Lanning confirms new Oddworld Title

50°
352w ago - Lorne Lanning, president of Oddworld Inhabitants, has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that the studio is working on new game based on the highly-regarded Oddworld franchise.

Reports of a new title emerged last week, following a speech given by Maxis co-founder Jeff Braun at Wilfrid Laurier University, where the industry vet revealed that he was working with Lanning's studio.

"I can confirm that we're working with Jeff on Oddworld stuff, but that's all I can say at this time," offered Lanning.

Braun stated that the new title would use development tools able to create content on a par with movie animation, with assets suited for both film and games.

"The rendering tools are getting so good now for 3D animation that you can literally create a linear animation and create a video game using the exact same objects," he said.

Oddworld is currently working on Citizen Siege, a title that has been conceived as a game and CG movie from its early stages.
 

PS3 Mirror's Edge won't be in 1080p, DICE confirms

50°
355w ago - Dice Studio has said that Mirror's Edge will not be in 1080p but both the 360/PS3 versions will be in 720p.

Dice say however that we can expect "crisp, clear texture resolutions".

To quote: Decker said: "It's more about in certain situations you're going to see very crisp, clear texture resolutions there and, again, this is more for the tech-file, somebody like me who's sitting up there and looking at every single little detail and saying, OK what's the difference between this one and this one, putting them side by side."
