240w ago - Stephanie Fernandez (Localization Producer at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.) has shared the following via PS Blog today:
Hello, my name is Stephanie Fernandez and I worked as the Localization Producer on Eternal Sonata for the PLAYSTATION 3.
Eternal Sonata will be shipping tomorrow, October 21st, and it will include new features and extras that can only be found on the PLAYSTATION 3 platform.
In preparation for the game's release, I wanted to share with you some of my thoughts and insights from working on the game and give you a few more details about the new exclusive content.
When I started working on Eternal Sonata for the PS3, I was pleased to find out there would be additional story material incorporated into the game that is unique to the platform. I had always felt there were some aspects of the story which might be a little too vague for anyone who didn't have the advantage of the background knowledge that I had about the story.
But now there are scenes that give the game player a little more insight; scenes that reveal a bit more general information about the concept behind the story and more specific details regarding character motivations.
Not that everything is spelled out point-by-point-you...

241w ago - President Bush signed a new anti-piracy law heavily backed by the RIAA and MPAA today that establishes an IP Czar who will report directly to the president.
Primarily aimed at better protecting worldwide copyrights, the law boasts strengthening criminal laws against counterfeiting and piracy. The first IP Czar is expected to be named around the end of President Bush's final term of office.
To quote: The law also toughens criminal laws against piracy and counterfeiting, although critics have argued that the measure goes too far and risks punishing people who have not infringed.
The Recording Industry Association of America and Motion Picture Association of America backed the bill, as did the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
"By becoming law, the PRO-IP Act sends the message to IP criminals everywhere that the U.S. will go the extra mile to protect American innovation," said Tom Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
