Sony says that the Disc-based Delivery System will fall

200°
304w ago - Those crazy Sony people. First they tell us that Blu-ray is the wave of the future, and now they say that digital downloads are. Make up your mind! :P

At a developer conference in London, SCEE president David Reeves said that the future is the PlayStation Network. He points out that internal figures that show over 40 per cent of PS3 owners download games direct to their machines.

Reeves told MCV UK: The key to the future is the PlayStation Network, Games put straight onto PSN are the big opportunity.

We do believe that the disc-based delivery system will fall as the power of the network base rises. At the same time, the overall industry growth will continue to go upwards as we push out into emerging markets.

What we don't see is an overall decline in the market. This is a golden era of video games.

So which is it, Sony? Hexus gaming points out that current games may never work as downloads. Think about Metal Gear Solid 4. Could you imagine trying to download that game?

I think there's room for both. Even though they are "proofing itself against the disaster the music industry has found itself in," games are still selling on discs.

I'd say keep the downloads for smaller games, and push the disc for big titles. Do you agree with Sony's...

Electronic Arts' Neil Young Calls It Quits

50°
304w ago - We didn't even see this one coming, one of the longtime creators of Electronic Arts, Neil Young, has left the company for an "new project." I have never reported about some leaving a company before so I really don't know what to say, I'm kind of at a lost of words right now.

But, anyway just forget about me a lets get back to the story. As I was saying, Neil Young was working at Electronic Arts for about or even more than 11 years.

He worked on games like The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, following that Young was put in charge of Maxis during the production of Sims 2 before being promoted to vice president and general manager of EA Los Angeles. When in Los Angeles, Young supervised Medal of Honor Airborne and Boom Blox.

"Neil Young has decided to leave EA to manage his own company. Neil is an 11-year EA veteran who has created a lot of great games and many good friendships at EA. We wish him the very best on his new project. Neil will always be welcome at EA."
 

Ferrari Challenge: The PS3 game your 360 could never do

300°
304w ago - Any console that can play the upcoming Ferrari Challenge, take one step forward. Not so fast Xbox 360! At least if System 3 CEO, Mark Cale is to be believed when he says, "The PS3 offers the most powerful opportunity in the global marketplace."

Barring some phantom super-console lurking in the E3 rafters, we suppose that's fair. Though, the fact that Sony's better established throughout Europe, and that continent's insatiable appetite for racing titles probably shouldn't be counted out either.

"1080p resolution is a better solution than just HD," boasts Cale while taking a light jab at the 720p Forza 2. Certainly, no one's clamoring for less "p", so news of this nature will surely do its part as red meat for forum trolls who absolutely obsess over tech specs.

Although, the very same people, those combing over every progressive pixel, may also take issue with the game running at 30 frames a second. Cale claims that you may need 60fps in an action game like Devil May Cry 4, but in a racing sim where you're heading forward at all times 30fps is more than adequate. And judging by our hands-on, we're inclined to believe him.

Performance aside, what does this technical powerhouse offer in terms of gameplay? Well, graphics are just the tip of the iceberg....
