350°
228w ago - Update: Sony has officially announced the ITV Player will be heading to PS3 today at GamesCom 2010, and will offer new channels including Yahoo 7 (Australia), ITV, Animax and NOS YLE Areena.

Today Made2Game.com (linked above) reports that the ITV Player may be coming to PS3, and ITV are currently in discussions with Sony about the possible launch.

For those unaware, ITV is a public service network of British commercial television broadcasters, set up under the Independent Television Authority (ITA) to provide competition to the BBC.

ITV is the oldest commercial television network in the UK, having begun broadcasting in 1955.

To quote from [Register or Login to view links]:

"ITV is also understood to be in discussions with Sony about launching ITV Player on the PS3 games console, according to the same source. The service would be streamed and advertising supported. It is hoping to launch on this platform also by the beginning of September.

Nintendo's Wii platform will not allow advertising and Microsoft's Xbox does not allow free content as it charges for all web content via its Xbox Live platform."

229w ago - As part of an interview with SPOnG.com (linked above), SCE Cambridge Studio Producer Mark Green has revealed that PlayTV 2 is currently in development for the PS3 entertainment system.

Whether this news will be part of the major update slated for the end of 2010 that PlayStation Network Product Manager James Thorpe hinted at previously remains to be seen.

Green admitted the hardware update was being worked on alongside updates to the existing PlayTV, DLC for LittleBigPlanet 2 and its Move-compatible title TV Superstars.

To quote: "Well, as a whole studio, I think you saw TV Superstars for Move announced a little while ago," he said.

"We're still working on Play TV, Play TV 2. And then we have other guys working on other concepts..."

Finally, for those curious, Cambridge Studio is a part of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios and currently comprises 90 development staff.
 

Video: PlayStation Move PS3 Developer Diary: TV Superstars

100°
232w ago - Creative Director Jason Wilson has shared the next installment in the ongoing PS3 Developer Diary video series, featuring PlayStation Move with TV Superstars for the PlayStation 3 today.

To quote: Working on a game like TV Superstars has become a bigger, more interesting challenge than I first thought. I've worked on some oddball games before like MediEvil and Ghosthunter, and what was interesting about those games was the idea of creating little worlds that mixed humor with action.

Likewise, the challenge with TV Superstars was to create an environment that finds humor in the world of fame and celebrity, one that players could experience and enjoy together (I like to think of the movie "Zoolander").

Now, add the fantastic new PlayStation Move motion controller and the PlayStation Eye into the mix, and we started to come up with some pretty creative ideas. A whole new generation of design challenges awaited us.





At the core of the game is the theme that you, the players, are taking an action-packed journey through the crazy world of TV shows with a virtual "you" that's created using the PlayStation Eye.

Seeing yourself appear within the game is guaranteed to make you smile. I know the development team...
