Sony announces a Trojan Horse, through PS3 updates

50°
320w ago - Well, they didn't announce one in its current parlance exactly. It's more like the original horse – the one that disgorged the elite Achaeans into Troy. In this case, the Trojan Horse is the PS3 console, and it will be disgorging content. It's not I who made this historical comparison, some analyst did, but I sure wish I had.

The plan was, all along it seems, to roll out the game console and constantly upgrade its capabilities. For example, soon you will be able to get news and weather from your PS3, download feature films, and there will be a photo/movie management app with geotagging and a globe view, not unlike what I saw at the Surface event, but without the (somewhat critical) touchy interface.

Well, I look forward to getting a PS3 one of these days, but they keep making it a sweeter deal so I think I'll just continue to hold off for the moment.
 

American McGee Confirms Unreal Engine 3 'Twisted Tale' Project

50°
341w ago - Spicy Horse co-founder American McGee has confirmed that his Chinese-based studio has a second game in development in addition to the (pictured) episodic American McGee's Grimm.

Though relatively low-profile thus far, the designer has only revealed that the early in production game is a "[Unreal Engine 3] based, big publisher, multi-platform, twisted tale project".

As part of a post on his official weblog, McGee reveals that the Grimm project, being produced for online game subscription service GameTap, is at "the half-way point", commenting: "we're 12 episodes in, with another 12 to go."

He then goes on to reveal basic details on the next project, which is Unreal Engine 3-based and therefore presumably destined for next-gen consoles including Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 - though platforms are unconfirmed at this time.

McGee, who created American McGee's Alice while at Electronic Arts and whom Gamasutra recently talked to about his plans for Grimm ends the call for developers to work on this new franchise by noting that "...an official announcement will come when the time is right".
