Naughty Dog: We'll see leaps between games on the PS3 bigger than on the PS2

50°
340w ago - Speaking in a recent interview, Evan Wells of Naughty Dogs was discussing the success of Uncharted for the PS3. As well as lavishing praise on the PS3 and the importance of the team hiring the correct people, Wells remarked that they should be able to do much more in future as their engine and development environment are now in place.

He stated the effort can now be focused on what they want to do rather than how to do it and believes that within 3 years leaps between games on the PS3 will be bigger than those experienced on the PS2.

To quote: VideoGamer.com: Finally, what more can gamers expect from Naughty Dog games in the future? What will PS3 games look like in 3 years time?

EW: Well everybody is back after a hard earned vacation and the team is ready to dive into our next project. The most exciting thing for Naughty Dog's future is the strength of the team that we have assembled and the technology that we have in place as we embark on our next game.

We should be able to do so much more this time around, given the fact that we aren't trying to build our engine and development environment at the same time we are trying to make a game. The effort can be much more focused on what we want to do, instead of how we want to do it. As for what games will look like in 3 years,...

50°
340w ago - To quote from orighammer: I'm sick and tired of the stupid PS3 comparisons that Gametrailers puts together, so I decided to make one of my own comparing the Gametrailers site video quality vs. one of their rivals, IGN.

IGN was selected randomly, as the same results occured against any of their competitors. Notice the gametrailers site colours looked washed out and blurry?

    Rock Band boosts track sales; song price to increase by end of month

    340w ago - It's another success for the music game genre as Harmonix sells more than 2.5 million downloadable songs from their hit game, Rock Band. This success reminds us of the time when digital music sales were also boosted thanks to Guitar Hero III.

    According to Harmonix and MTV Games, the best selling tracks from Rock Band (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) are from the Metallica Pack, which features the original versions of "Ride the Lightning", "Blackened," and "And Justice for All."

    Other hit downloads include tracks from The Police, Queens of the Stone Age, David Bowie and Black Sabbath. Paul DeGooyer, MTV Senior VP of home entertainment, music and games, says we'll be able to see album releases "very shortly."

    If you're a fan of Rock Band, you probably have until the end of the month to take advantage of their US$ 0.99 per song price tag. According to DeGooyer, the price will only be available for a limited time and will become US$ 2 by the end of the month.
     

    Blu-Ray crushing rival DVD format in Japan: study

    50°
    340w ago - TOKYO (AFP) - Next-generation DVDs are catching on with Japanese consumers, with sales picking up sharply at the end of 2007 and the Blu-Ray format blowing away the rival HD-DVD platform, new figures show.

    In a replay of the VHS-Betamax battle in video cassette tapes in the late 1970s, two different DVD formats are hitting the market offering cinematic quality images and interactive entertainment -- but at a significantly higher price than traditional DVDs.

    A major study of 2,300 electronic stores across Japan found that consumers were increasingly buying the next-generation DVD recorders.

    The proportion of DVD recorders sold that were next-generation rose from 6.1 percent in October to around 20 percent in November and December, said the study by Japan's Business Computer News think tank released Thursday.

    Due to the price difference, next-generation DVDs made up a lucrative 35 percent of the total value of DVD recorder sales in the last two months of 2007, it said.

    Blu-Ray, the format created by Sony Corp., accounted for a crushing 90 percent of next-generation DVD recorder sales in the three-month period, the study said.

    Blu-Ray is used in Sony's PlayStation 3 video-game machine, but the study only looked at living-room DVD recorders.
