Far Cry 2 interview with Alexandre Anacio

50°
343w ago - We've had lots of Far Cry 2-related news lately and we've no intention to stop, since this shooter is going to kick some serious ass this year (hopefully...). Recently we've stumbled upon an interview with Alexandre Anacio, from Ubisoft's Montreal Studios.

9Lives.be has an exclusive interview with Anacio about the history of Far Cry 2 and about the stage where the team is at now. Since the interview is in Dutch, we've searched for a translation and this is what we've come up with from Jay, a registered member of infarcry.com:

9lives: How long has the game been in development and how big is the team at the moment?
AA: We started about two and a half years ago. Originally the team consisted of 50 to 60 people, but now it's already over 150. That's a lot, but it's also because of the fact that the engine was developed completely in-house.

9lives: How far are along are you with the game?
AA: We have just entered the betastage. Which means all features are implemented in the code and we are now focusing on polishing and debugging the code. But content-wise the game is complete.

9lives: In Far Cry 2 you can choose between ten characters to play the singleplayer. How do they differ from each other?
AA: The difference is purely visual and background story: they all...

Rumor: 80GB PS3 dead, 120-160GB with Dual Shock 3 incoming

50°
343w ago - To quote from the rumor's source, linked above: Our inside source of all things video gaming has been right almost every time it comes out of the shadows to give us information, so I'm going to dispense with the back story. Wherever his or her information is coming from, it's usually solid. After I spoke to Sony about the possible discontinuation of the 80GB PS3 model, I lit the mole-signal.

Working late into the night on Saturday, I heard a noise behind me. For both of our safety, I didn't turn around. "You've talked to Sony," the mole said in a gravelly whisper. "Tell me what they told you."

I repeated the information we reported on Friday: Sony is sticking to a two-model approach at retail, but the company won't comment on whether or not the other model would be the 80GB system. The 40GB system seems safe. I asked the mole what information he had.

"Sony is, in fact, phasing out the 80GB PS3. Sony is going to stay with the two-SKU approach though, and the prices look to stay the same," the mole told me. I heard sirens in the background, and the mole seemed nervous. "The Spiderman 3 pack-in will disappear as well once the 80GB unit is gone. In order to maintain a similar value proposition to the 80GB/Spiderman 3 bundle, I expect to see a storage increase to 120 or 160GB at the same price...

Downloadable content for PlayStation 3 and Xbox360 version Grand Theft Auto IV

50°
344w ago - Rockstar Games has today announced that two versions of Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable content. PlayStation 3 owners do not have to fear that they have no extra content after the release of the game.

Yesterday was announced that the postponement of Grand Theft Auto IV is due to the PlayStation 3, since developing games for this console simply takes longer than with the Xbox 360.

This problem has already been solved, various sources report that the development of the PS3 and 360 version right now. There are also believed that the PS3 and 360 version look the same, which should therefore be sure that we finally get no popular game which all fanboys gameplay videos to compare.

But Rockstar also made known that the Xbox 360 console is not the only one who downloadable content. The console from Microsoft gets two exclusive downloadable chapters, with additional missions.

They will not come to the PlayStation 3, but will consider all other downloadable content to both consoles. What exactly is this content is not yet known, but are appearing in new cars, new weapons, and maybe still some new missions.
