MGS Portable Ops+ gets dated; no MGS4 PSN demo

50°
367w ago - Do you remember when your fake ID couldn't fool the bouncer, leaving you outside sober, cold, and distanced from the girl you were looking to at least play ball with? That's kind of how we're feeling right now, after learning on the latest Kojima Productions podcast that there are no plans to bring a demo of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots to the PlayStation Store prior to launch.

Host Ryan Payton stated: "I can tell you, as of right now, we don't have any plans of uploading this demo on the PlayStation Store." And definitely, he added, no plans of "uploading [on PSN] next week." His statements were echoed by Konami's new flak master, Michael Shelling, adding "[E for All] is going to be your one chance to actually play it prior to it launching next year."

Yeah, while this news is certainly a crushing blow to the Metal Gear Solid fan base (many of which help run Joystiq), there was at least a little positive news: Shelling revealed that Konami has gone gold with Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops+, and is planning to release the game on November 13. That's a little antiseptic to the wound, no?

Official: Sony sells PS3's Cell to Toshiba

367w ago - So much for their earlier denial, eh? It's now official. An anonymous Sony official has "confirmed" to Japan's Nikkei that they will sell their advanced computer chip operations to Toshiba in an effort to re-focus on core business. The official announcement is expected later today.

The sale gives Toshiba the manufacturing responsibility for the much hyped Cell processor used in Sony's PS3. Sony, of course, will continue to invest in the Cell chip. Nikkei says the deal is worth some Ą100 billion (about $858 million) and should be completed by March.
 

Sumo Digital serving up Sega Superstars Tennis

367w ago - Sonic and other mascots set to hit the courts early next year in Europe and North America!

Sonic the Hedgehog is in a competitive mood of late. Taking a break from his normal evil-thwarting activities, he's penned in to showcase his company crossover dominance in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games next month and Super Smash Bros. Brawl in February, respectively.

Sonic's also going to take care of some business in his own backyard, as Sega today announced Sega Superstars Tennis, a mascot sports game from the latest Foundation 9 acquisition, Sumo Digital. The game is currently set for release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Wii, and Nintendo DS in Europe and North America in early 2008. The Xbox 360 and PS3 will feature online play.

Sonic may be the publisher's ace, but it will draw a pool of more than 15 playable characters from its lengthy history, including Super Monkeyball's AiAi, Space Channel 5's Ulala, and Samba De Amigo's Amigo. Each character will have their own abilities, as well as home courts, like Sonic's Green Hill Zone.

Sumo Digital is no stranger to the subject matter, having previously developed Virtua Tennis 3 for the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation Portable and Virtua Tennis World Tour for the PSP. The studio has also worked with Sega before on recent...
