Soul Calibur IV on PS3 requires nearly a 7GB HDD Install

316w ago - sh4mike of NeoGAF (linked above) shared the following today:

According to specs from online retailer YesAsia, the PS3 version of Soul Calibur IV will require hard drive space of over 6700MB to install, and save data space of over 2048MB.

This is pretty much sure to annoy all PS3 owners, including 20GB SKU owners - but the big question is.. why does it need so much storage?

On the other hand, those with larger PS3 HDD's won't likely mind at all
 

PS3 Graphics Chip Shrinks to 65nm this Fall

100°
317w ago - Kotaku are reporting that as part of Sony's "cost down efforts," the PlayStation 3 will be getting smaller, cooler, cheaper, more efficient 65nm RSX graphics chips starting this fall.

Kaz Harai noted in his corporate strategy speech earlier today that the Cell processor has been manufactured with 65nm process technology as of "last holiday."

Both were originally manufactured at 90nm, which was charming at first, but now seems rather vulgar. We're updating our console power consumption charts in anticipation of the new RSX's release.

EGM August '08 Rumor: Xbox 360 to get Hefty Price Cut this Fall

50°
317w ago - The latest rumor in the soon to be released issue of EGM (August, 2008) speculates that Microsoft is set to announce a huge price cut on Xbox 360 SKU's this fall.

This rumor comes courtesy of Clinton514 @ GAF.

No other details were given, but it's a well-known fact that Microsoft is aiming to appeal to a more casual gamer market... and by dropping the 360's price by a considerable margin it seems like the most logical step.

Time will tell for sure!
 

Call of Duty: World at War First Look for PS3

317w ago - I'm sure that every PS3 player (even Xbox 360) are looking forward to the release of the next in the CoD series, which is Call of Duty: World at War...

The developers of the game stated that this game is unique compared to their early releases. The campaign will revolve around the pacific side of the world, and then the story will obviously take place there.

And of course, watch out for some new weapons and features of this game.

To quote: Last year's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was more that just a great game. It took a series that made a name for itself under the rich tapestry of World War II and pushed it some 60 years into the future. The end result was a game that used the latest advances in weaponry, in a setting influenced by some of today's most tense conflicts, to produce an experience both stirring and refreshing.

Since then, the big question on everyone's mind has been this: What will they do with the fifth Call of Duty? The answer, we know now, is a return to World War II. But rather than a step backward, Call of Duty: World at War is shaping up to be a unique take on this familiar timeline. With part of the campaign set in the often-overlooked Pacific theatre and plenty of inspiration drawn from Modern Warfare--both technical and creative--developer Treyarch is aiming...
