Nintendo Patent Reveals 'Kind Code' Game Hint System Coming

50°
275w ago - Nintendo is working on a gameplay system meant to ease the pain of completing a difficult game, without watering it down so much that it turns hardcore gamers off.

The new system, described in a patent filed by Nintendo Creative Director Shigeru Miyamoto on June 30, 2008, but made public today, looks to solve the issue of casual gamers losing interest in a game before they complete it, while still maintaining the interest of hardcore gamers.

The solution would turn a game into a full-length cut scene of sorts, allowing players to jump into and out of the action whenever they wanted. But when played this way, gamers would not be able to save their progress, maintaining the challenge of completing a game without skipping or cheating. It would also allow players to bring up in-game hint videos and skip directly to particular scenes in games.

275w ago - It seems that Sony are all set to release an official PS3 bundle with the game and a PlayStation 3 console if this packshot (below) is to be believed.

To quote: The bundle is for Europe only right now with no current plans from either SCEA or SCEJ, but we'll hedge a bet that SCEA will do something similar and announce it just before launch.

No price has been given yet, but we'll assume it'll be out with the game on Februrary 25th in Europe and February 27th in the UK.

While a bundle seems to be the most obvious thing right now in the world, it's still a good move for the game as there are a lot of people who are buying a PlayStation 3 just to get Killzone 2.

275w ago - To compliment an article from earlier today, a member of NeoGAF known as mephesta claims he was told by a Sony rep that they may be eventually be putting out a PS2 emulator for the PlayStation 3 console.

Apparently, as the PS2 has about one year left on its life cycle, we shouldn't expect Sony to develop anything new with regards to backwards compatibility.. and they will just go out and get a PS2 emulator to put in future consoles.

To quote: The rumor comes from NeoGAF member Meph who recounts what was told to him by a Sony representative (openly described as a 'tool'). The story goes that Sony might be willing to buy a PlayStation 2 emulator for the future.

"He mentioned that since the PS2 has just 1 year left on its life-cycle not to expect them to develop anything new with regards to backwards compatibility," says Meph.

"He then leans in and lowers his voice, as if to tell me some deep dark secret and mentions that Sony may be willing to potentially buy a PS2 emulator to put in future consoles."
