131w ago - Relentless Software CG Supervisor Stewart Jones has unveiled their upcoming Blue Toad Murder Files (BTMF) Christmas Advent Calendar PS3 Theme today.
To quote: With the festive season and Blue Toad Murder Files first birthday approaching we wanted to have an extra 'Christmas Present' in the shape of a theme to hand out with our game. Please have a read to hear what we've done!
The idea of a Blue Toad Christmas Theme was discussed; we're all big fans of Christmas! As a result a brief was created in which we needed to take the village of Little Riddle and add some festive spirit to the design... Oh, and any reference to an advent calendar would be appreciated too!
We decided that the background should stay the same throughout; however, we wanted to use the iconic detective's magnifying glass to show a different image each day during December leading up to Christmas Eve.
Having the number of images in the theme limited to 24 which spookily coincides with the number of windows in a traditional advent calendar seemed like a good omen!
At first we had an actual advent calendar displayed over the whole screen, but in practice this obscured the XMB and no one could easily navigate the options... Fail!
136w ago - What is quickly becoming one of the most delayed PS3 titles this year, European Brand Manager Penrose Tackie has announced today that the Gran Turismo 5 PS3 release won't be available on November 3 but will arrive before Christmas this year.
To quote: We are sorry to say that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available on the previously announced release date of November 3rd, but the game will be released before Christmas.
We sincerely apologise to GT fans for the delay, however creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating a racing experience of the highest quality.
We are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches later this year. We'll have more information for you in the near future.
