Gran Turismo: Not easy to develop on PS3, PSP GT put aside

50°
370w ago - The man behind the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauch (from Polyphony Digital) said when interviewed by Joystiq that it's not that easy to develop on PS3 that they've had to put GT for PSP aside a little bit. On the PSP version he said "we are still working on it, but this will be after GT5 on PS3."

Gran Turismo is also one of the few games that run at 1080p and 60fps, he said that this was a must have because when you're driving at high speeds you must be able to see detailed objects in the distance. He also said they had ideas for PSP interactivity with the PS3, most notable was that he thought it was possible for someone on the PSP to compete in the same race with someone on the PS3.

To quote from the interview: Interactivity between PSP and PS3. One of the examples they showed at E3 two years ago was the idea of a rear-view mirror in a racing game... *laughs* ...so that example probably not being the best application of the PSP, have you considered any other kind of PSP interactivity with the PS3 and GT5?

Well, one example would be for people to utilize replays of their race experience. Take that outside the home, whereas at home you would need the PS3, but they can take that away and share. Another would be - and we would need to do further research, we're just talking ideals...

Metal Gear Solid 4 sneaks in PS3 Dual Shock 3 rumble

50°
370w ago - Konami Corp. last week debuted the English version of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots at E for All and snuck in the first public test of Sony Corp.'s Dual Shock 3 controller in the demonstration.

The new controller includes rumble left out of the Sixaxis controller due to litigation between Sony and Immersion Corp. that has since been resolved.

The Dual Shock 3 features the same shell as the Sixaxis controller and the new rumble technology makes it a bit heavier than the best-selling Dual Shock 2 controller.

The inclusion of Dual Shock 3 rumble in Metal Gear Solid 4 provides an immersive experience that otherwise would be lacking. In the demo, each assault rifle blast pounds a hefty shake in player hands.

Metal Gear Solid 4 stunned in the English version at E for All. The latest entry features the most lifelike tactical espionage gameplay in the series to date.

The Dual Shock 3 will be sold this Nov. in Japan. The controller will be sold in the U.S. in early 2008.

Ratchet and Clank scores 9.4/10 from IGN; Best PS3 game ever?

100°
370w ago - IGN has scored R&C Future: Tools of Destruction a generous but well deserved 9.4/10, the highest scoring PS3 game to date, as IGN put it whether your a long time fan or noobie to the Ratching and the Clanking you'll love Tools of Destruction!

"Whether you're new to R&C or someone who has played them all, Ratchet and Clank Future deserves to be in your library no matter what. Not only has it supplanted Going Commando as the best title in the franchise, it's also the best game of any series on the PlayStation 3 thus far -- and that's saying a lot when you're up against Oblivion, Ninja Gaiden, Warhawk and Insomniac's very own previous effort, Resistance: Fall of Man."
