Kojima Goes In-Depth on Metal Gear Solid Touch for iPhone

50°
313w ago - Metal Gear Solid Touch has likely caused a lot of heads to be scratched across the game industry today - a full on MGS game on a fledgling platform that features a couple decent titles and approximately eight squillion one-shot gimmicks?

Don't tell that to MGS director Hideo Kojima. Along with MGS Touch creative producer Yasuyo Watanabe, the man sees great opportunity in the tiny device - in fact, when the game is released next spring, he hopes it opens up an entirely new userbase for his games.

Here are a few choice excerpts from the interview with Kojima and Watanabe published in Famitsu magazine this week:

This is Watanabe's first "real" game. Up to now, she was Kojima Productions' chief Web designer, working on a variety of Flash stuff for the site.

Kojima: She almost never give me any lame ideas during presentations; she has a good sense for that sort of thing. Around the time I noticed that, the iPhone was released and started to become a major movement. I'm a huge fan of the iPod and Apple products in general, so if they're putting out a game platform, then naturally I want to compete on it - and I thought that her design sense would work perfectly on the iPhone.

The game, a shooter set in the world of Metal Gear Solid 4, is controlled entirely...

PlayTV goes back to DRM-free, PSP-friendly copying!

250°
328w ago - Sometimes it's hard to keep track of what's "official" and what's not - especially because Sony continues to contradict itself. When we first heard the Euro-exclusive PlayTV box would allow users to copy recorded shows onto the PSP, we all said "yay."

The convenience of recording TV and taking it with us wherever we go sounded swell. Then, we found out that the files would be restricted.

Well, with PlayTV in the hands of reviewers, it appears Sony has switched back to the original plan. You'll now be able to copy DRM-free versions of your recorded programs to your PSP, or any other compatible MPEG-4 device, at least according to CVG.

Our European readers may want to check out CVG's review. The rest of us will just sit here in the corner, waiting.

328w ago - The latest Sony Bravia dares to go where no other LCD television has been able to go before; beyond the prototype realm of wireless high-definition connectivity and into your living room.

It seems that the latest and greatest in quality televisions have entered a stage where technology moves sideways and not forwards in leaps and bounds. The jump from analog to digital television was a huge step in quality, but now that the Blu-ray, 1080p, world of tomorrow is in fact here today the focus in performance enhancements has shifted from a goal of 'more real than life' sensory quality to refining the peripherals of existing television technology.

Enter the Sony Bravia EX1. At the Berlin hosted IFA 2008, Sony announced the latest addition to the Bravia family that has the pioneering feature of integrated high-definition wireless connectivity. Given the advancements in wireless transfer rates, it is easy to see the EX1 as a logical move towards the right, wireless direction. Similar wireless products have been announced before, but Sony's latest Bravia model is the first to make it out of the prototype stage.

The EX1 features an in-built wireless transmitter that beams wireless HD images during runtime; the result being one less HDMI cable to worry about. The EX1 will be offered in 40-inch,...
