Resident Evil 6 Interview: Can Capcom Inject New Life Into the Undead? 550°
126w ago - SCEE Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared an interview today with Capcom discussing their new Resident Evil 6 video game for the PS3 entertainment system.

Below are the details, to quote: It's a big week for gaming! The release of a new mainline Resident Evil game is one of those events where gamers the world over prepare to bunk off school/work and devote their every waking hour to the noble pursuit of zombie slaughter.

The sequel to 2009's Africa-set Resident Evil 5 is an absolute beast of a game, offering one of the largest single player campaigns in recent memory.

Ahead of its global release today, we caught up with executive producer Kobayashi-san, director Sasaki-san and producer Hirabayashi-san at Tokyo Game Show, to find out how Capcom went about creating such a mammoth title.

Fred Dutton, PlayStation.Blog Europe Manager: What makes Resident Evil 6 stand out from its predecessors?

Sasaki: I think it's the human drama that we really wanted to convey. The script is just so packed with stuff. Trying to blend everything from the script with the game design and make that come together was really a challenge. What we tried while writing the script was to incorporate the level design and the design of the game itself so they blended seamlessly...

Video: From Board To Screen: Dungeon Twister Lives on PSN 50°
139w ago - Following up on their previous details, today Game Creator Chris Boelinger at Ludically has shared a video dubbed From Board To Screen on Dungeon Twister for PSN.

To quote: Hi - I'm Christophe Boelinger, and I create board games.

My life is dedicated to games. I've made more than 30 games to date, and have always dreamt of seeing one of them turned into a video game. This week, that dream is going to become a reality when that will help you knock me off the top.

When I first designed Dungeon Twister as a board game way back in 2003, I knew it was the perfect candidate for a video game. Its infinite gameplay, the fact that no two games ever the same, the tremendous number of strategies that can be deployed and just how addicted we all got to it suggested that it would be a great videogame.




So I really am delighted that it is coming to PSN tomorrow for £7.99/ €9.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers can also enjoy a 50% reduction on that price for the first two weeks following launch.

As I said, my life is dedicated to games. So please come find me on Playstation Network...

Video: The Tester 2 Episode 5 Preview, Now Available on PSN 50°
222w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared some video footage today previewing The Tester 2 Episode 5, which is now available on PSN.

To quote: Last week's grueling teamwork challenge pushed the cast to their limits and this week, Episode 5 ramps up the pressure with an intense creativity challenge.

With nearly half of the original cast eliminated, the seven remaining gamers are given the opportunity to create a video game concept and actually pitch it to a focus group of real PlayStation testers.

Add to the mix the critical eye of this week's guest panelist, Kotaku reviews editor Michael McWhertor, and you won't want to miss what does down in Episode 5.

Folding at Home / Life With PlayStation PS3 Research - Take 1

Folding at Home / Life With PlayStation PS3 Research - Take 1 550°
266w ago - I just started to take a look at Folding@Home / Life with PlayStation as part of my PS3 research. There are several little details which are pretty interesting...

One thing which got me interested, is that the "game" has more permissions than any other game or application. Normal games do not have access to the root of /dev_hdd0/ but F@H has.

It can read, write and execute which was found out as it creates a folder called /cntlnk/ in /dev_hdd0/.

There it caches several music files you play while running the application. This is handled via a SQL Lite Format 3 DB (db1.1.sqlite) in /NPIA00002/USRDIR/data/wlop/.

Another thing is, that F@H/LWP can override the PARAM.SFO. Normally the option window when u press triangle in XMB on a game just reads the data, PARAM.SFO passes to it.

But here, the automatic start option is not loaded via the .sfo. It seems it comes from an external XML file in the game directory.

The last I want to write about now is, that older F@H versions were able to control the SPU's partly. For example it was possible to define how many SPU's are used at all.

These are just some points that came up so far. I will keep you updated when there is more!
