Assassin's Creed Revelations: Your PS3 Questions Answered

50°
176w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has outlined an FAQ on the upcoming Assassin's Creed Revelations video game for PlayStation 3 today!

To quote: Recently, Ubisoft invited us to sample the first few hours of Assassin's Creed Revelations for PS3. I learned a lot during that play session:

•The control scheme has been revised, pushing Eagle Vision to L3. This frees up the Triangle button for secondary weapons such as daggers.
•Altair comes into play via flashbacks following the thrilling Masyaf key retrieval missions, which are the successors to Assassin's Creed Brotherhood's Lairs of Romulus.
•The game map now has a Google Maps-style satellite view that I enjoyed while skipping around the sprawling city of Constantinople/Istanbul.
•The Den Defense mission brought tower defense-style sequences that are completely unlike anything I've seen in the Assassin's Creed universe.
•I saw someone actually *use* the Apple of Eden.
•I noticed some different UI in the Animus, and started to wonder why the interface was different (and no, Ubisoft wouldn't tell me).
•I saw Ezio stab a dude with a guitar - I think they called them "lutes" back then.

And I saw it all in 3D - those leaps of faith are now even more impressive....
 

Video: Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken: Flash to Full 3D on PS3

50°
176w ago - Ratloop Head Programmer Lucas Pope has shared a video today of Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken going through the transition from flash to full 3D on the PS3 console below.

To quote: Our upcoming PSN game, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, got a few upgrades on the way to PS3, and I'd like to dive into some of the technical details of that transition.

Hardboiled Chicken is a vastly expanded and improved game based on our earlier Flash release, Rocketbirds: Revolution.

In going from Flash to the PS3, we added better controls, more screens, more chapters, more weapons, more enemies, and more gameplay modes. And we seriously upgraded the visuals. In this article, I'll talk about some of those visual upgrades and how we did 'em.

Rocketbirds

If you haven't seen or played Rocketbirds, it's a non-scrolling 2D game with a strong visual style. Think of classic 2D action-adventure games like Flashback, Oddworld, or Blackthorne. It could be considered a platformer, but there's no scrolling and each screen is revealed whole-hog when you walk off the edge.

2D Like We Mean It

For the original Rocketbirds: Revolution, we kept things simple. Each screen had a static foreground image and a static background image that were composited...

Video: PlayStation 3 Controller Made Fully Remappable Mod

300°
177w ago - Today Hazer has updated his ongoing PS3 SixAxis controller mod project and shared both a video below and schematics on making the PlayStation 3 controller fully remappable!

Download: PS3 Remap Controller User Guide (PDF) / PS3 Remap v1.0

To quote: Hello everyone, I am glad to introduce the long awaited PS3 Remappable controller. This project started with the express intention of granting Chuck Bittner his desire to remap the buttons on a standard controller.

With this controller, Chuck will be able to remap the buttons on any current and past game that he normally would have to pass on due to the ergonomics of the default button layout. But his petition is much more important than that, as it will allow stock controllers the same ability for all games in the future. So please visit his petition (petitiononline.com/cu5t0m/petition.html) and support the cause.

OK. Now onto the main event! I have spent better than 6 months of late nights (I dont have free time before 10PM) getting this modification to work just right. I have made the decision not only to make the first controller...
