To quote on the noticable changes thus far: "Apparently the latest update is for the Ambassador program (earn free VC titles by helping others connect online) in Europe, but again, there are no noticeable changes for North American Wii systems at this point.

Those who downloaded the Wii Internet Browser for 500 points can now receive a free VC NES title."

Electronic Arts Developer Diary: The Saboteur for PS3

Electronic Arts Developer Diary: The Saboteur for PS3 100°
283w ago - Today EA's Lead Designer Tom French has shared a sneak peek along with some insight into their upcoming PS3 title The Saboteur.

According to their developer diary, the game is a big story-driven open-world action-sandbox game that pits a daredevil race-car-driver-turned-saboteur vs. Nazi occupied France.

To quote: "WWII, really, do I need another WWII game?" We said the same thing to ourselves when the idea was first pitched to the team.

Let me tell you now, straight up, The Saboteur is not your typical WWII game.

In The Saboteur rather than playing what might as well be a nameless-faceless soldier in the war you play as Sean Devlin; a rough around the edges Irish race-car-driver who becomes a saboteur. While I know this idea might sound a bit unbelievable at first; let me tell you now that Sean is actually inspired by a real life person - William Grover-Williams.

He was British/French grand prix champion who drove for the legendary Bugatti racing team back in the 30's. Because of his daredevil nature and his ability to blend into the French culture he made prime candidate to be recruited by the Special Operations Executive (SOE).

He then became a saboteur working with the Resistance there. This idea of a larger-than-life hero that wasn't...

Capcom Dev: Sony Motion Controller Means Wii-to-PS3 Ports 550°
285w ago - During a recent interview with Capcom's Jun Takeuchi, 1UP (linked above) was told that several Japanese developers welcome Sony's upcoming PS3 Motion Controller as it opens the door for Wii-to-PS3 ports.

To quote from the interview: "1UP: What about Sony's motion control device?

JT: Well just being from Capcom, I can tell you that we have a lot of good ideas on how to make use of that technology and we're looking forward to putting them into practice.

However, speaking to other developers in Japan, I've heard a few of them say they were delighted by the Sony motion controller because they can just port over their Wii titles to the PS3."
