287w ago - After debuting their highly impressive, real-time gameplay trailer last month, High Voltage Software have officially announced their new FPS, The Conduit, the tirle that will usher in true next-generation technology on the Wii.
Built on the studio's custom Quantum 3 Game Engine, The Conduit will be able to reproduce all kinds of neat little tech tricks on Nintendo's weak white box, including dynamic environment mapping, interactive water with real-time reflection, and four-stage texture composition including gloss, diffuse, and bump mapping. Yeah, that's a mouthful.
As well, High Voltage says that they've created an extremely advanced A.I. system, which is necessary if their "terrifying alien creatures" are to pose any threat to you whilst you flail your arms around, wildly, using the game's uniquely tailored control scheme. Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer at High Voltage Software, said:
Too many Wii owners have been told that the Wii is a casual platform with no room for serious games or top-tier graphics. With The Conduit, we intend to prove that theory wrong by providing gamers with the kind of title they imagined back when the platform was first announced.
Full online, competitive multiplayer (please, no friend codes) and a "thrilling" single player campaign are in store...

288w ago - SOCOM have announced there will be a couple of ways to get into the Public BETA for SOCOM: US Navy SEALs Confrontation. One will be through a radically different pre-order program (think 'team') the team is working on with one of our retailer friends.
It's currently in planning mode, but I should have some more info soon. Trust me-- all you clan guys are going to love it. Stay tuned. The second option will be to go through Qore. The site hints the BETA will be released this summer.

289w ago - Update: Videogaming247 has obtained some new information as follows:
- Sony's currently going through PS3's library to check whether or not in-game XMB's full compatible. While it's expected that the the new menu system, in-game messaging, and so forth, will work with virtually all games, for a minority of titles the current black menu screen will be retained. It's not known yet which games, if any, won't be able to use in-game XMB.
- The user-music functionality is only included in the new development tools, which have now gone out to coders. This means that existing games won't support it unless they're patched. That's right: you won't be able to play GTA IV with your own music unless Rockstar updates the game, if what we've been told this morning is true.
- Same for Trophies. They tools required to add these are only just in the hands of developers, which means it's going to be some time before you see the feature appear in a major game.
- Some aspects of the XMB, such as the photo viewer, won't be available in-game after the 2.40 Firmware update. If you select these features in-game, you'll be asked...
