MySpace Plans Gaming Push, Allows Devs to Launch Games

MySpace Plans Gaming Push, Allows Devs to Launch Games 100°
293w ago - News Corp's latest strategy to turn MySpace into a cool place to be at again is to turn it into a videogame platform.

MySpace will attempt to expand as well as allow developers to launch their products on the site.

To quote: News Corp's latest plan to make MySpace into a go-to destination for Web surfers is to turn it into a gaming platform, according to News Corp digital head Jonathan Miller.

Miller told the Fortune Brainstorm: TECH conference in Pasadena, California that he wanted to expand the site's videogame platform and offer developers the ability to launch their products on the site and mine user data to develop better games.

"None of the traditional media conglomerates are also significant video game players, so to speak, and I think that that's the missing piece of the equation, particularly when you see how much time is spent playing games online," Miller said.
 

Socom Confrontation 1.50 Update Details, 1.60 Plans Revealed

Socom Confrontation 1.50 Update Details, 1.60 Plans Revealed 200°
297w ago - The Socom Confrontation Online Team has announced the following news, on both the 1.50 and 1.60 patch updates respectively:

The 1.50 Update for SOCOM: Confrontation is feature complete and currently in test. Due to the number and scope of the feature set of 1.50 the testing cycle has taken longer than anticipated.

We remain committed to releasing this patch as soon as the remaining open issues are resolved. It is extremely important to us to make sure the 1.50 update is as problem free as possible when it is released and we are working towards that goal rather than pushing it out as is on a specific date.

A number of features in 1.50 are of such a scale that it will not be possible for us to fully predict how they will behave before public deployment. An example of this is the tournaments, each of which can accommodate 1000s of players.

To account for this, we will ramp the size and number of tournaments during the first weeks after release to monitor and address any issues which may arise. We have also been working on a 1.60 Update which will incorporate any fixes that are required as Tournaments and Clan Ladders become fully populated.

We are happy to announce that the 1.60 Update will also contain additional features...
 

Ubisoft: No Plans for PS3 Version of Splinter Cell: Conviction

Ubisoft: No Plans for PS3 Version of Splinter Cell: Conviction 400°
298w ago - Speaking on the company's official forum, developer Ubisoft stated, "Splinter Cell Conviction is a true Microsoft exclusive title and there are no plans to have Splinter Cell Conviction on other platforms."

The firm elaborated on the decision to remain exclusive to 360, describing the Splinter Cell franchise as being 'historically linked' with Microsoft consoles beginning with the original title in 2002.

To quote: "There are several reasons behind this choice. First of all, Splinter Cell games are historically linked with Microsoft platforms.

The first Splinter Cell on the original Xbox was one of the first games to fully exploit the console's technical possibilities," added the company.

"At that time, Microsoft really believed in the game potential and provided strong support to promote it. So, there is a "link of heart" between the franchise and the platform. Some games are like this (think of Final Fantasy for instance)."

"The second reason behind this choice is purely linked to production. Having a single target platform means that we can optimize the game even further, because we only have one type of - console - hardware to support."
 

Sony: No Plans for a PS3 Slim Console Version Anytime Soon

Sony: No Plans for a PS3 Slim Console Version Anytime Soon 200°
303w ago - Sony have point-blank denied online speculation that a slimline version of the PS3 could be on the way.

Rumors have been circling since yesterday that the platform holder might reveal a newly streamlined model at E3, in a similar vein to the popular PSone and 'PStwo' systems.

To quote: Speaking to UK website CVG, however, a spokesperson for the firm said that the company "doesn't have any plans" for a revision of the hardware at present.

While Sony have moved quickly to deny any PS3 hardware changes, the firm have been less quick to snuff out speculation pointing toward a new-look PSP handheld. More at E3 2009, perhaps?
 

Bethesda: No Plans for any Fallout 3 DLC for the PlayStation 3

Bethesda: No Plans for any Fallout 3 DLC for the PlayStation 3 300°
314w ago - Recently TheBitBag received a few emails asking if Bethesda will release any DLC for Fallout 3 on the PlayStation 3. To quote:

I can't believe I didn't ask Pete this question when I interviewed him. I did what any journalist would do... I sent him an email.

Pete's response was quick and straight to the jugular:

Fallout 3 DLC is for Xbox 360 and PC.

Now in yesterday's interview, Pete told me that they always planned on releasing DLC. So it's not like Microsoft came in and asked them to create it like they did with Rockstar.

Maybe Microsoft just liked what they were doing and bought the exclusive rights across the board. This means that any DLC released for Fallout 3 will always be 360/PC exclusive.
