Uncharted 2 Takes Game of the Year at VGAs, Evan Wells Chats

Uncharted 2 Takes Game of the Year at VGAs, Evan Wells Chats 250°
272w ago - Today Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells has shared his experience from this year's VGAs, where Uncharted 2 for PS3 won Game of the Year, as follows:

So the SPIKE TV Video Game Awards were this Saturday, and in case you hadn't heard, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves walked away with Game of the Year!

It's a huge honor and the team is still basking in the glow of that moment. While it's still fresh in my mind, I wanted to share a little behind the scenes recap of how it all went down.

I arrived at the show with Christophe, Amy and Bruce and we walked the red carpet, which was a pretty cool way to start the evening off. There were tons of media lined up with cameras and microphones ready for interviews. We stopped for a few interviews and Christophe even played a game of Wii Resort Table Tennis against one of our interviewers (he let her win... so he says).

Continuing down the carpet, we ran into a bunch of people arriving at the same time as us like Marty O'Donnell from Bungie (who walked away with the award for Best Score for Halo: ODST... congrats!), our friends from Infinity...
 

PlayStation Home: Red Bull Event and Fight Night Producer Chat

PlayStation Home: Red Bull Event and Fight Night Producer Chat 50°
275w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced news of a new Red Bull space and event, Fight Night Producer chat and more heading to PlayStation Home this week.

To quote: Mark your calendars - this Thursday, November 26th, the next phase of the wildly popular Red Bull Island will be released in PlayStation Home. To complement the existing Red Bull Air Race World Championship mini-game, Red Bull will unleash two brand new spaces that will appeal to sports fans and beach bunnies alike.

The first, an exhibition of action and adventure sports photographs from Red Bull Illume. The winning photograph from each of the competition's ten categories is displayed on large illuminate cubes, imitating the real-life exhibit.

The second is a Red Bull Flugtag mini-game where users can compete against one another by launching one of five wild flying machines off of a 30-foot high deck in hopes of achieving flight. Think: The Wright Brothers... or that time you and your genius buddies decided to pile into your wagon and take a ride off the roof.

He who flies the farthest wins the high spot on...
 

Sony: Cross-Game Voice Chat is Coming but No Date is Set Yet

Sony: Cross-Game Voice Chat is Coming but No Date is Set Yet 250°
276w ago - Update: The official PlayStation Site was recently revamped, and now lists in-game chat for online games as a separate feature and states, to quote:

"Talking with friends or other players in the middle of a game is easy. Chat by text or use your headset to voice chat. You can also add new friends or check other player's profiles (including their Trophy collections) to know who you're up against while you're playing."

Although many are a bit disappointed that yesterday's PS3 Firmware 3.10 update announcement didn't include the cross-game voice chat functionality discussed recently by PSN Director Eric Lempel, it is in the works.

The European Blog's James Thorpe has revealed that cross-game voice chat is coming in response to the question "when is there going to be cross-game voice chat?" regarding the firmware update.

To quote his reply: "I wish I could just give...
 

PTOM Interview: PSN Boss Talks Voice Chat & Firmware Updates

PTOM Interview: PSN Boss Talks Voice Chat & Firmware Updates 500°
277w ago - During a recent interview with PlayStation: The Official Magazine (PTOM) in the Holiday '09 issue, PSN Director Eric Lempel discusses how Firmware update features are planned and released for the PlayStation 3 and PSP consoles and touches on cross-game voice chat.

To quote: "We go about doing that in a few different ways. We do consumer research in addition to following our roadmap.

We've had a very long roadmap that we've wanted to roll out, and clearly all of them couldn't be rolled out day one when the PS3 launched. So we've been implementing these features as we go along and some of them, and some of them take longer than others."

Lempel continued: "Of course time and manpower always factor in because there aren't limitless resources. And are sometimes key features that must go out in Firmware updates. For example, you saw on September 1, we released a 120GB PS3 and we did a Firmware update, and there were some enhancements in that specifically to bring on the new hardware."

The director of the PlayStation Network further explained: "We absolutely read all the feedback that we see on our blog when we do firmware updates. We have people who look across different forums and different sites. And we also do our own testing - some very extensive testing.."
 

Video: PlayStation Eye Chat: Assassin's Creed II for PS3

Video: PlayStation Eye Chat: Assassin's Creed II for PS3 300°
277w ago - This weekend Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video on the PlayStation Blog from a recent PlayStation Eye Chat covering Assassin's Creed II for PS3, as follows:

With Assassin's Creed II just days from hitting stores, there's still quite a few unanswered questions about the game (some of which you sent us via Twitter). Earlier this week, I spoke with Ubisoft's Lead Game Designer Patrick Plourde, from his home in Montreal via PlayStation Eye.

Even if you're not interested in hearing new details about Assassin's Creed II, including Ezio's Villa, customization, new features not present in the original, and PSP interoperability, you'll want to stick around to find out your task for the Live By The Creed mission.

Hint: it's near the end of the video.
