Naughty Dog Updates Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Twitter Feeds

250°
259w ago - Today Naughty Dog's Co-President Evan Wells has announced that they will be updating the frequency of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Twitter feeds as a result of too many updates.

To quote: We've seen some concern about the frequency of updates for those choosing to use UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves' [Register or Login to view links] support.

Some reviewers have had early access to the game and selected the option to update their Twitter accounts as they completed each chapter of the game. This has resulted in some Twitter feeds being updated multiple times an hour.

We obviously want to provide the best experience for everybody, so for the time being we've disabled Twitter updates on chapter completions. The option will still exist in the menus when the game ships on 10/13, but if activated, it will do nothing.

Some time after the game has shipped, we'll release a patch to reactivate the feature, but with a limit on the frequency of updates.

We're certainly sorry for any inconvenience, but I guess that's the risk you run when trying to blaze a new trail in the complicated world of Social Media!

And the 140 character version: Heard concerns about Twitter chapter updates for UNCHARTED 2. We've just disabled it but will patch...

SCEE Clarifies Naughty Dog Comments on 2.80 Firmware Secret

50°
268w ago - Yesterday Naughty Dog's Sam Thompson stated in a Comic-Con 2009 interview that the PS3 Firmware 2.80 update adds more memory.

Today, SCEE has clarified these comments explaining that the Naughty Dog rep apparently got confused due to the Comic-Con excitement.

To quote: "There's no secret in firmware 2.80. Naughty Dog were actually talking about their engine 2.0, but in the ComicCon rush they simply got confused and said 2.80 referring to the latest firmware," SCEE told Gamezine.

Additionally, Naughty Dog community manager Arne Meyer has stated the following on NeoGAF forums:

"This was just a typical blunder with all the info and people coming up to us constantly at the PS booth at San Diego ComicCon.

"He was actually referring to Naughty Dog Engine 2.0 updates we made. We had just been making sure at the event that all the PS3s brought in were on FW 2.80, since that is what that build needed to run on, so I have no doubt it was top of mind."

"Naughty Dog is constantly working to improve every aspect of the gameplay; be it animation, lighting, sound, texture fidelity."





"You know if you look at the game itself with the 2.80 engine update, you know we're adding more memory, so we get a lot more utilization of the SPUs so we increase our optimization of the Cell processor as well.

So we've got from the engineering side all the way up to texture fidelity, artists adding in even more... I mean there's really not a singular aspect that's not been improved in the game," Thompson added.

A reduced OS memory...
