351w ago - In an interview with PALGN, Naughty Dog game designer Evan Wells talked about the Upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive, Uncharted. In the interview, Wells reveals much about the game including its length, quest, and why the game is perfect only for the PS3. Some of the key features revealed are as followed:

- First play-through should last 10-12 hours.
- There will be four levels of difficulty.
- There are 60 little treasures hidden throughout the game to keep the gamer immersed for hours on in, expanding the length of the game's experience.
- Rumble is built right into the game.

"We've also put into the game a medal system, so as you're playing the game if you perform special feats you'll get medals, such as getting a certain number of headshots, getting a certain number of headshots in a row, killing people, doing a special brawl combo, just lots of things along the way that will unlock the medals.

The medals then contribute to your overall medal score and your medal scores then feed into our bonus system which allows all of the unlockables to be unlocked." said Evan Wells.

351w ago - In a recent forum post by Mark Rein, Vice President of Epic Games, he states that the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 is running top notch and that PlayStation 3 owners will be in for a treat.

"I was playing the PS3 build for a few hours tonight and it is really, really fantastic. Amazingly smooth and solid. I think you PS3 users are in for a huge treat with UT3," said Mark Rein.

One of the best features about the PS3 version is the ability to download user maps created via the PlayStation Network. However without the PC version, players will not have access to a level editor, and must wait for PC users to upload their maps.

In addition, Epic Games has confirmed that the PS3 version will support both a keyboard and mouse and the SIXAXIS/DualShock 3 controller.

Jeep Seen Driven by a Yellow Dog!

351w ago - In early October, Terra Soft Solutions was engaged by Axion Racing to assist with the integration of a Sony PlayStation3 running Yellow Dog Linux into "Spirit", Axion's fully autonomous Jeep Grand Cherokee which is this week competing in the qualifying rounds for the DARPA autonomous vehicle challenge in Victorville, California.

Integral to the on-board, realtime image processing system, the YDL PS3 rides atop a set of 1U rackmount servers inside Spirit which drives itself through simulated city traffic and obstacles during the qualifying rounds, currently underway.

In just ten days, Terra Soft's Bill Mueller ported, wrote, and optimized code for Yellow Dog Linux on a PS3 which is connected to an RGB camera. This realtime image processing system enables the autonomous vehicle to "see" the street terrain and avoid obstacles. The RGB camera is tied into the Axion arbitrator and other computerized sensors to help determine the best path for the 3/4 ton Jeep. All sensors vote and then send commands to actuators that control steering, gas, and brakes for the vehicle. For safety, the brakes are always on, unless released by software commands that then motivate the gas pedal.

Axion "Spirit" is the only autonomous vehicle to participate in all three DARPA Challenges: was one of only 7 teams to qualify...
