[Register or Login to view links] is an experimental project where PlayStation, members of the public and young people from diverse backgrounds come together to create social games. We at PlayStation believe that the best games are played as a group.

The project has been developed by PlayStation and Hide & Seek with a team of eight initial Game Runners who have been picked to train as game designers and work to make the games relevant.

There are three games in development: Flags, Blocks and Hoops. The games are in prototype stage and there will be a series of playtests to develop the games.

DMCA Leagalizes Video Game and Phone Jailbreaking as Fair Use

550°
230w ago - The Electronic Frontier Foundation recently won a DMCA ruling that, under most 'fair use' circumstances, no longer makes it illegal to hack and jailbreak devices including video games and portable phones including Apple's iPhone.

Essentially consumers shouldn't need Apple's approval for everything you put in your device just because the device itself was made by Apple, much like you don't need HP's approval for the paper you put in their printer or Serta's approval for who can sleep on your mattress.

"In addition to jailbreaking, other exemptions announced Monday would:

• allow owners of used cell phones to break access controls on their phones in order to switch wireless carriers.
• allow people to break technical protections on video games to investigate or correct security flaws.
• allow college professors, film students and documentary filmmakers to break copy-protection measures on DVDs so they can embed clips for educational purposes, criticism, commentary...
 

Guerrilla Games Director Details Killzone 3 PS3 Controls

To quote from the official site, linked above: "For Killzone 3, Guerrilla's developers are aiming to keep the unique sense of weight in the game while ramping up the accuracy and responsiveness of the controls. We talked to Game Director Mathijs de Jonge to get a better idea of the considerations involved with the redesign.

"Our first priority when we started working on the controls for Killzone 3 was to listen closely to Killzone 2's players - what they liked, what they disliked, and how they felt things could be improved," Mathijs says.

"Accuracy and responsiveness consistently came up as the top issues. At the same time, a lot of players were saying they loved the weighty feel."

That might sound contradictory, but one doesn't have to preclude the other. "For the most part, the unique sense of weight in Killzone 2 comes directly from the first-person animations, not from the control scheme," Mathijs explains.

"The speed of movement and the way the camera bobs up and down are consistent with the view of a person carrying around heavy equipment."

When the team went back to the drawing board, they...
