Sony to Announce New PS3 Chassis Design at Gamescom 2011

500°
167w ago - Although no PS3 price drop is planned for the event, today [Register or Login to view links] reports that Sony will be announcing a new PlayStation 3 chassis design at Gamescom which runs from August 17th to the 20th, 2011.

This is not to be confused with the recent PS3 model CECH-3001A/B that weighs in at 2.6kg down from 3.0kg and cuts power consumption from 230W to 200W.

While the upcoming PS3's functionality is said not to change, during a recent interview PlayStation India Country Manager Atindriya Bose stated that the new PS3 chassis design will feature a slightly different internal design.

To quote: "Any chance of a price drop on the PS3 soon?

As of now, no.

Gamescom, then?

(laughs) Well, if there was a price drop coming at Gamescom, I'd know. There is, however, a new PS3 chassis being discussed. A slightly different design, but from what I can tell, not much difference in functionality."

Sound of the Dead: Audio Design in Dead Nation, Sample Track

50°
205w ago - Today Dead Nation Composer and Sound Designer Ari Pulkkinen has shared a Sound of the Dead: Audio Design Dead Nation interview and sample track with fans.

To quote: It's been a big month for Dead Nation! We've confirmed that online co-op play will be included from day one and also shown off three special zombies - the Mouth, Jumper, and Bombie – in our new "Know Your Enemies" video and there's still more to come in October.

But one thing we haven't yet discussed is audio. With Dead Nation, it's vital that we create a skin-crawling atmosphere; more importantly, the music needs to adapt to the intensity of the on-screen carnage.

I thought it would be fun to address some common questions related to Dead Nation's audio design, everything from the zombie groans to dynamic music to soundtrack inspirations. I hope you enjoy it, and be sure to listen to the sample track [Register or Login to view links].

221w ago - Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime acknowledged that Nintendo was seeking feedback from attendees and may still tweak the design of the upcoming 3DS.

To quote: "You know typically, at an E3, our engineers are looking for feedback.

You know, we have an army of Nintendo representatives out on our show floor talking to attendees, getting reactions to everything in the device: the depth slider, the buttons, the sliding pad that is, essentially, an analog-type stick.

These are things that we're looking to get reaction to, including the overall button placement. When we get all that feedback, then we'll finalize the design.

The one thing, for sure, is that we will launch in all of our major markets by March 31, 2011," he stated.
