Video: Quantic Dream Unveils Kara GDC Demonstration Trailer

350°
133w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a Kara demonstration video trailer below courtesy of Quantic Dream from this year's GDC event.

To quote: Head-turning videogame tech demos are a dime a dozen at Game Developers' Conference, but developer Quantic Dream might have this year's crop beat.

Watch the full tech demo video for "Kara" below to see how the creators of Heavy Rain are looking to expand virtual performances in video games.

And just to be extra clear: No, "Kara" is not Quantic Dream's next game.

Director David Cage was on-hand at GDC to debut the new video to the press, and his presentation touched on the origins of "Kara" - we've selected a few choice quotes below. Check back tomorrow to hear our full interview with Cage on the Official PlayStation Blogcast. It's one interview you won't want to miss!





After Heavy Rain, we wanted to push the envelope in terms of quality, starting with the visuals. We wanted to improve many things - things that were not possible with the Heavy Rain engine. So we had to develop a new engine from scratch.

222w ago - We have recently reported on the PlayStation Move launch date and titles from E3 2010, and this weekend uptodateksa2 has shared a PlayStation Move XMB navigation speed demonstration video on YouTube.

Although the video's origin appears to be from PlayStation Saudi Arabia and isn't in English, it demonstrates both the squeezably soft ball located atop the PS3 motion controller and the speedy navigation possible through Sony's XMB (XrossMediaBar) menu on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

PSP Firmware 5.55 Spotted on a Demonstration Unit

100°
272w ago - During a visit to the Japan Expo, French site PSPGen had access to a PSP with Firmware 5.55 installed.

Apparently it was on one of the PSP demonstration units that were used to showcase Soulcalibur Broken Destiny.

Could this be the next PSP Firmware update, and if so what changes will be included?

To quote, roughly translated: Traveling at the Japan Expo, one of our editors (KaiserCz) to have access to a PSP (Fat), on which he could test Soul Calibur IV, but this is not what we'll talk.

He was surprised to find on the PSP a firmware 5.55. Nothing new has been found, however, the search has not been very extensive.

Several assumptions can be made. Is this a firmware with a simple security update? Firmware available only through a UMD (as in 5.05 The Idolm @ ster)? Picture from 5.55

The traditional Wait & See is required. Thank you to KaiserCz.
