Motorstorm: Pacific Rift Framerate Promised Stable at all Times

250°
311w ago - Paul Hollywood, the Executive Producer, from Evolution Studios has stated that Motorstom: Pacific Rift will run at 30 Hz which is important to make sure you get the right tactile feel.

Moreover, even with four players you will always get the same frame rate he added.

To quote: The main thing for me is maintaining the framerate. The 30 Hz experience is a necessity to make sure you have the right tactile feel. with one two three or four players, you will always get that frame rate.

What we have had to do is remove some of the nicer visual effects, I hope that people will accept that you'll have to loose a few things to get 4 Players on the same screen.
 

Sony Bring on v2.43 Firmware quickly as 2.42 is all Messed Up

800°
311w ago - Numerous amounts of gamers are reportedly requesting to Sony that they release the new PS3 firmware ASAP as v2.42 is causing them loads of issues. The reported issues range from no discs being read to problems of going online.

To quote: Personally our PS3 is just fine but then we have not had much time with it since the latest firmware. This is what some gamers have reported to PR:

Well this is totally Effed Up!!! My son decided that it would be a good idea to update the PS3 and he did 2 nights ago without me knowing it. Well now ANYTHING BLURAY does NOT play. NOTHING!!! Doesn't even recognize the DAMN Disc!!! Is there anything I can do???

Installed this newest update and now nothing works, can not read disks at all. We have done the system restore, etc. now have to wait while it gets shipped to Sony to fix it.

Very upsetting, fairly new PS3 (5 months) in excellent condition and was working perfectly prior to update. Extremely frustrating.
 

Burnout Paradise Cagney Update Finally Hits XBox 360 Today

50°
311w ago - Despite being released for the PlayStation 3 edition of Burnout Paradise earlier this month, the content-packed Cagney update, due to pesky bugs that cropped up during Microsoft's routine quality assurance testing, still has yet to arrive on Xbox 360.

Good news is, according to developer Criterion Games, these bugs have since been eradicated and the 360 version of Cagney is en route for an August 4 release.

As a brief recap, the update brings three new online game modes to the table, along with two extra rides and 70 timed Freeburn challenges.

Will it arrive on schedule? We'll know soon enough...
 

Yoshida: Team Ico Has Something Really, Really Good on the Way

50°
311w ago - The new head of Sony Computer Entertainment Shuhei Yoshida said, in an interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine, that Team Ico has something "really, really good on the way."

The full quote: "They are working on a title. I started the ICO project. Ueda-san joined my team in Japan as a cinematic animator, but he created a short movie and presented it to me and said, "I want to make this game."

I said, "Yes, let's do it, but you have never made a game. We have to have experienced people do it," so it took a while, recruiting one person at a time. And because Fumito Ueda doesn't compromise, we had to move the development from PSone to PlayStation 2. Then I couldn't complete the game because I moved to the United States.

It took four years and the second game took four years too. So I started calling them the 'Olympic Team.' They haven't released a PS3 title yet - of course not - they'll take four years! But they have something really, really good on the way."

Of course Yoshida would say something like that-he kind of has to. But given the track record of Team Ico-I think we can take his word on that.
 

Site News- Attention All: Web server, RSS, Forum Issues?

50°
313w ago - If you, or anyone you know, is having trouble accessing our Web site or Site Forums please let us know and include the following details:

• PC OS (Windows, Linux, etc)
• Web Browser and Version (Internet Explorer, FireFox, etc)
• Geographic Location (US, EU, etc)
• ISP (if you feel comfortable)
• Firewall/Internet Security Software (Norton, McAfee, etc)

For the last week or so we've been having some Web server issues, hence the delayed Site News updates, ranging from our Portal to RSS and Forum issues. Our dedicated Newsposter Staff have been given the week off, while CJPC (who is currently quite sick) and myself have been trying to sort things out.

Everyone we speak with on IRC say they can access the Site/Forums OK, and we can ourselves, however, traffic analytics tell us over the last week or so over there is nearly a 50% drop... most visible accessing the Forums. Obviously summer is upon us and people are on vacation, but not 50% of the PS3News Forum Members are all at once

We are trying to troubleshoot this, and once things are back to normal we also have some nice PS3 Dev progress to share as well.

Thanks for your patience while we...
