124w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer SnakePlissken--PMW has announced news of an FPS First Person Shooter PS3 Homebrew Engine for Custom Firmware in development along with some details on the first game.
To quote: My Name is Snake Plissken. I am Chief Commander of a group known as PMW NATION. I'm currently directing our groups development branch into bringing to the PS3 one great first person gaming experience by means of homebrew on PlayStation Custom Firmware.
We hope to release onto the world a whole new concept in homebrew development on the PS3 by developing an "homebrew engine" that future developers can use to make homebrew with to be used on the PS3.
With the engine one could make your own First person shooter homebrew. It has been proven that other forms of homebrew can be made for and used with the engine as well. Not only that but This would offer a interface for developing homebrew outside of PSL1GHT for all types of CFWs (as we will port the engine to work with multiple types of CFW's)
Developers would need a way to install a .pkg onto there PS3s. They would then make homebrew in form of "recourse data" with the Gaming engine’s tool chain. that is then coupled and distributed with the engine.
A user can download the engine.pkg and insert it on...
214w ago - Yesterday we saw video footage of a third-person view in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for PS3.
Today Infinity Ward's community manager Robert Bowling (A.K.A. fourzerotwo) has confirmed that a third-person camera viewpoint will be available in this holiday's monolithic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, though it'll be limited to specifically labeled online playlists.
To quote: "It's not something you can toggle on and off in ANY game," said Bowling. The special mode can only be played in private matches - toggled on or off just like "Hardcore" settings - or in playlists that are designated for third-person play.
According to Bowling, everyone playing in a third-person playlist will be restricted to the viewpoint. "This is just another cool way to play the game," he said, "you obviously will still have the option to play gametypes normal as well."
287w ago - An eight page Famitsu article called "Shall we shoot a little?" and featuring a bikini lady holding a gun tackles first-person and third-person shooters was featured recently.
The magazine polled readers to see what experience they have with FPS or TPS games. 74.8 percent have played these types of games, while 51 percent of those said they'd like to play FPS or TPS games again.
Reasons for disinterest didn't include the stereotypical FPS-games-make-Japanese-nauseous, but did include these responses from Famitsu readers:
"I'm not interested."
"The games seem difficult."
"I don't know what the point of these games is."
"I'm worried about playing them because I'm a beginner."
293w ago - Word has begun spreading around, originating from Next-Gen.Biz, about Infinity Ward potentially looking to secure exclusive development of the Call of Duty franchise.
As many CoD fans should know, the games were originally spearheaded by the gang at Infinity Ward, as the first two games were developed by the team. Following CoD2, Treyarch took the responsibilities of CoD3, in addition to a few spin-offs, while Infinity Ward began work on Call of Duty 4.
Well, after enormous critical acclaim, absurdly huge sales, and a welcomed breath of fresh air, Activision had decided to let Treyarch work on Call of Duty 5. Moreover, they'll be taking the series back to the beaten-deader-than-a-dead-horse World War II scenario. This decision has been met with a lot of anger, seeing as how CoD3 is widely regarded to be the worst of the series, and Treyarch was behind it.
Now that you've been caught up with the drama, let's get back to the topic at hand. This rumor of I.W. attempting to secure exclusivity allegedly comes from a former Activision employee, someone from the recently closed Foster City/Underground studio.
Why could this have credence? Well, apparently, the reason why Activision had shut down their Underground Studio (formerly Z-Axis), is because after they finished Enemy Territory:...
