PS3 GT Academy 2010 LIVE at Silverstone Update Detailed

100°
216w ago - PS3 GT Academy Commercial Director Andy Reynolds has shared details on a LIVE at Silverstone update today via PlayStation Blog.

To quote: From millions of virtual racers we are down to 18 putting it all on the line for real.

Our competitors raced hundreds of laps each on the GT Academy Time Trial to prove their speed, they beat all comers at the National Championships and now putting their nerves, sweat and skills to the limit at Silverstone.

From Ireland to New Zealand and from Finland to Italy our 18 competitors have a chance to move from virtual champion to professional racing driver.

In front of them lies a 5-day test of skill, physical fitness and pure speed in front of our legendary judges of Eddie Jordan, Johnny Herbert and Sabine Schmitz where only the very fastest will achieve their dream.

Johnny Herbert, GT Academy 2010 Judge, said:

"These next few days will be difficult, different and hard but the potential for the most rewarding prize ever. We are going to transform a guy from the virtual world and bring them to the reality of motor-sport. At Silverstone, they will work and race together but act for themselves. Its a chance they need to take with both hands."

One man has been more responsible for giving pure talent...
 

MLB 10: The Show for PS3 - Catcher Calling the Game Detailed

50°
217w ago - Today Senior Designer Eddy Cramm has detailed the catcher calling the game in MLB 10: The Show for PS3.

To quote: I am here today to talk about the new Catcher Calling the Game feature. Catchy name, huh? Road to the Show, since its inception has been a very well received mode because it gives the gamer a very deep, realistic, and fun alternative to the traditional career mode.

The mode allows you to create the guy you want to create, in the position you want him to play. Depending on the position that you choose, you will be asked to do different things in the field that are specific to your position.

Last year, as we looked back on our game, there was one position we wanted to improve upon. That was the catcher.

In MLB 09: The Show, the catcher had the same basic responsibilities as any other fielder: Field balls in your area, cover your base. The only thing unique to the catcher was the task of throwing out base stealers. But as "baseball guys," we know that the catcher is a lot more involved than that.

The catcher is a key part of every single pitch in the game. He is arguably just as responsible for the outcome of a pitch as the pitcher. So when making MLB 10: The Show, we kept that in mind.

This year, we have added "calling pitch selection"...
 

Video: White Knight Chronicles - PS3 Online Play Detailed

200°
221w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today which details White Knight Chronicles PS3 online play and revealed that it will launch across Europe on February 26, 2010.

To quote: We've been talking about White Knight Chronicles for so long, that it's actually a bit hard for me to believe that it's only 2 weeks from hitting stores. But [checks calendar], that is indeed the case!

A few days ago, we held a media event in San Francisco to allow reporters hands-on time with the online portion of the game in a team setting.

I also sat down with US Producer Tsubasa Inaba to talk ask how robust the online feature set is with White Knight Chronicles.

I can't think of another RPG whose online modes (if they even exist!) are so intertwined with the solo campaign, and so I can personally see myself investing a lot of time there in just two weeks.

Also, we hope you've been enjoying the tutorial videos - a third one (featuring a dissection of the character creation options) will be debuting soon.
