OlliOlli Update: Win a Custom Skateboard, Helmet and First Aid Kit

50°
10w ago - General Dogsbody Simon Bennett at Roll7 is back with an OlliOlli update, inviting fans to win a custom skateboard, helmet and first aid kit.

Below are the details, to quote: So, we are two weeks since the launch of OlliOlli - the response has been AMAZING! Our tiny studio in New Cross, London, has been overwhelmed by the love that we have received from reviewers, but we're mainly overwhelmed from the sheer Twitter love that the game has got in its first couple of weeks (you guys rule!).

As you may have read in our communications and on forums, there is a pesky bug that seems to crop up from time to time. We found out about this just as journos were doing their initial reviews, and the team has been working tirelessly to try to smash out a fix.

It's not an easy task, but we have help from our other Indie Vita friends and the splendid people at Sony - so fingers crossed we will have some news for you soon.

In other news, we have now had three people (that we know of) complete RAD mode, which is pretty special. Only half of the Roll7 team have achieved this, so it's no mean feat! Maybe we need to make the game harder?

Anyway, you lovely people have now had a few days to get your hands around the controls, hopefully racking up some nice combos, so it's time...

PS4: FreeBSD, WebGL, HTML5, Webkit & Save Encryption Development

300°
21w ago - Many are aware Sony's PlayStation 4 video gaming console uses FreeBSD Open Source Software as outlined on Sony's site HERE, and today Software Engineer Don Olmstead briefly discusses WebGL / HTML5 and the PS4 while PS3 hacker kakarotoks confirms PS4 is running Webkit alongside preliminary PS4 Save Encryption from flynhigh09 as detailed below.

From Don Olmstead, to quote: "Now that the #PS4 has been released I can finally start talking about my piece of the puzzle.

When you login to your PS4 you are running #WebGL code. The PlayStation Store, the Music and Video Applications, as well as a good chunk of UX are all rendered within the browser.

I spent a good amount of time tuning our WebGL rendering engine, and I will be speaking at +SFHTML5 about how to optimize WebGL usage within the context of that work. There will be plenty of great tips on how you can speed up your own WebGL applications so get your slot now. And for those of you can't make it in person it will be live streamed on Google Developers Live."

From kakarotoks (via IRC):

From veras: It's a dev kit - at 1:36 you can see a white sticker on the front behind the cable he has pushed up against it (and as previously noted he's using the paper materials to cover other stickers).

From Wario64: You can see he's trying to hide the QR code in front with the wires
