89w ago - Today Kotaku (linked above) reports that Sony is rumored to debut the PlayStation 4 (PS4) next-generation console in 2013 which is currently assumed to be codenamed as Orbis.
While PS4.SCEDev.net does not currently work, the URL Orbis.SCEDev.net currently resolves to Sony's developer network Web site.
To quote: "While the official reveal of Sony's next home console could still be months away, if not longer, Kotaku has today learned some important details concerning the PlayStation 3's successor.
For one, the console's name- or at least its codename/working title- is apparently Orbis. And it's being planned for release in time for the 2013 holiday season.
The details in this story come from a reliable source who is not authorized to talk publicly about next-gen hardware but has shared correct information with us before. What they're telling us in specifics matches much of what we've heard and reported in generalities in recent weeks.
A Sony spokesperson declined to comment about these details, citing the company's policy not to comment on "rumors or speculation."
WHAT'S IN A NAME
Orbis. Say it out loud. Sounds a little like the word "four", doesn't it? Only it doesn't make the next PlayStation sound like a bad horror movie sequel.
117w ago - Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray has shared the debut trailer today for Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: It's been a while since we visited these hallowed halls to talk about our upcoming PS3 and PS Vita game Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD.
If you've been following the game's development closely, you may have caught our announcement that we delayed the release of Stranger's Wrath HD on the PS3 into the summer from its intended spring release.
While summer is almost at an end, we wanted to tell you that the game is in the final part of development right now. We're in beta and fixing bugs, and doing some last-minute optimizing where we can.
It's been a long road for us, and we've made a whole truck full of updates. We've updated EVERY one of 83 characters in the game, the vast majority of the environmental textures, and a lot of the environment geometry. We've also completely updated the user interface, added some easter eggs into the game, and a whole raft of unlockable extras - some never seen before, and some rarely seen.
To celebrate being at the end of the development cycle for Stranger's Wrath, we wanted to share this trailer with you. The trailer looks great but the...
131w ago - IO Interactive Community Manager Nick Price posted up the debut video trailer today for Hitman: Absolution on PS3 from E3 2011.
To quote: At this very moment, an army of hard-working team members are into the second day of presenting what is a true labor of love for IO Interactive - Hitman: Absolution.
The knowledge that millions of fans have been waiting for news on Hitman is making the guys give it everything they have to present a game that we're extremely proud of at IO. Lifting the veil on the development of a new game is always fun but given the connection between the studio and Hitman, this time it's more exciting than ever.
And the debut trailer? Well, see for yourself. Agent 47, the world's deadliest assassin, returns to take on his most dangerous contract ever. This time, he finds himself betrayed by the people he trusted and must use every skill and talent he has available to claw his way out of a dark conspiracy, which takes him through a corrupt world of twisted enemies. Thankfully, 47 is a resourceful individual and nothing will stand in his way for long.
When you're creating a game with the scope of Hitman: Absolution, you don't...
