Sony-Backed Blu-ray Wins: Will Sony's PS3 Follow Suit?

50°
356w ago - After the victory of Blu-ray format over HD DVD (Toshiba announced yesterday that they would halt production of HD DVD players and recorders, and would stop shipping to retailers by the end of March), will the PLAYSTATION 3 follow suit?

Is it possible that, although the PLAYSTATION 3 has started more slowly than the other consoles, that it will pick up momentum, and ultimately win the console wars?

After the fall of HD DVD, backed by Microsoft, and the lack of DVD support in the Wii (and no high definition support, either), it's understandable that consumers will want the most affordable player for the next generation of video (Blu-ray). Because of the fact that the PLAYSTATION 3 console is cheaper than the vast majority of current Blu-ray players, and that the PLAYSTATION 3 will continue to fall in price in comparison, it is the most viable option for those wishing to watch movies in high definition.

Not only is the PLAYSTATION 3 now one of the cheapest players on the market for the only next generation video format, it also has a stockpile of highly anticipated games coming out for it in 2008. Games like Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Killzone 2 are games that will push the PLAYSTATION 3 over the edge, and give it a year as good as or better than Xbox...
 

UT3 Mods: No headway for 360, Sony to see improvements

50°
356w ago - Our prognosis for mods on the Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament 3: not so good. In an interview with Joystiq, Epic Games' VP Mark Rein told us that there's no progress with Microsoft on making UT3 mods work with Xbox Live.

One would think Microsoft would be more open to community content given the recent Xbox Live Community announcement, but Rein noted that the system is different. Rein said the Xbox 360 version has no set release date.

Conversely, Rein did acknowledge the current PS3 mod system is less than stellar and told us to expect improvements coming soon.

We'll have more from our interviews with Mark Rein, CEO Tim Sweeney, and Cliffy B later this week.

In-Shirt XMB: Sony gets a sense of humor

50°
356w ago - The single biggest gripe PS3 owners have - CONSTANTLY - is not being able to access the XMB menu while in a game to change settings, chat and send messages and invites (think the 'guide blade' on Xbox 360).

Well, these T-shirts have been spotted at GDC (Game Developers Conference)... and it would seem Sony have found it rather amusing.

Is In-Game XMB just days away? We can but hope!
 

LittleBigPlanet planning lip-synching voice chat, filters!

100°
356w ago - Just when you thought you knew everything you could about Media Molecule's upcoming world-creator game LittleBigPlanet, we find something else that blows our minds and makes us anticipate the title even more.

In the latest Edge magazine, it's been revealed that in addition to the emotions and such your sackboy (and sackgirl) can perform, there are plans to lip-synch voice chat.

That is to say, the characters will move their mouths in roughly the same way you do (even if not, it's still cool). Down the line, expect stuff like voice filters, too. We think that's a pretty stellar move.
