Videos: Killzone 3 PS3 - From the Ashes Pack: The Retro Maps

50°
148w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Aryeh Loeb is here with some fresh video footage today and details on the Killzone 3 PS3 'From the Ashes' Pack dubbed The Retro Maps.

To quote: Last week we posted preview videos of the first two maps from €From The Ashes€, the third DLC pack for Killzone 3. Today we€re offering preview videos of the other two maps included with the pack: Tharsis Depot and Radec Academy. If these names sound familiar, it€s because they€re re-imagined and revamped versions of the beloved Killzone 2 maps.

The first preview video features Tharsis Depot, a Guerrilla Warfare map for 16 players based on the Killzone 2 classic. After incurring damage during the ISA invasion of Helghan, the depot has been converted to process nuclear Petrusite.

The Helghast made extensive use of jetpacks to facilitate the reconstruction process, but the harsh conditions resulting from the damage still made it a grueling endeavor. The ISA have locked their sights on Tharsis Depot now that it€s back in full-scale production, and this time they intend to finish the job they started.





To give you a sense of what€s changed, this video shows comparisons of the original and the new version:

During E3, top fighting pros and newcomers alike stormed our E3 booth for hours of furious fights, leading to tons of feedback. It€s a blast to jump right into Street Fighter X Tekken and start exploring, but the mechanics we€ve shown are far from complete....

Videos: Sony PlayStation Move Linux Mouse Driver PS3 Demos

300°
158w ago - Today Jacob Pennock has shared some PS3 demo video footage of a PlayStation Move Linux mouse driver he built based off Sony's upcoming Move.Me library.

Also below is a Gestural Interaction PS3 demo video, essentially a wand-based Linux Media Center using the PS3 Move controller.

To quote from his blog (linked above): A couple weeks ago at the game developers conference Sony announced a new product called moved.me which is basically a C library that allows you to connect the move controller to your computer.

Is currently in closed beta and I just got access to it this past Thursday. I spent my weekend playing with it and so far I€ve built a Linux mouse driver.

Since the Sony software is still closed I€m going to hang on to the source code at the moment, but hopefully by the time it goes public I will be up to polish this up into a nice wand gesture-based Linux Media Center.
