106w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has posted up some video footage today from Captivate 2012 showcasing Resident Evil 6 which arrives in October, SF X Tekken PS Vita Cross Play, Lost Planet 3, and DmC updates!

To quote: Last week I was in Rome with some friends from Capcom to attend their Captivate event, an annual showcase of what's in the pipeline for such game series as Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and Lost Planet.

While I could spend a couple of hundred words on fountains and pizza, there is a lot of game news to cover; here's a handy digest of all the best bits.

Resident Evil 6 is coming sooner than you think

We got to see an hour-long presentation on Resident Evil 6 that oozed with new information, including the announcement that the game's release date has been brought forward to October 2nd, 2012.

The game features three playable characters - Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Jake Muller - with three unique, intertwining stories that the player can choose to play through in any order. While the action takes place in various locations around the world, we do know that a large portion is set in China.

If you're wondering who Jake Muller is, he is a new character, a mercenary in Eastern Europe, and the son of maniacal...

188w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has revealed DmC: Devil May Cry for PS3 alongside a new PlayStation 3 video trailer today!

To quote: Sweet, sweet Tokyo: the succulent ramen, the unparalleled electronics district, the red-hot video game rebirths.

If you've been following our Twitter, you know about Capcom's biggest Tokyo Game Show announcement.

Devil May Cry has been reborn as DmC in a soup-to-nuts re-imagining of the classic PS2 and PS3 action series. The results are undeniably striking, and are bound to trigger debate and discussion among series diehards for months to come. Judge for yourself – take a look at the debut video for DmC below.

DMCA Leagalizes Video Game and Phone Jailbreaking as Fair Use

550°
195w ago - The Electronic Frontier Foundation recently won a DMCA ruling that, under most 'fair use' circumstances, no longer makes it illegal to hack and jailbreak devices including video games and portable phones including Apple's iPhone.

Essentially consumers shouldn't need Apple's approval for everything you put in your device just because the device itself was made by Apple, much like you don't need HP's approval for the paper you put in their printer or Serta's approval for who can sleep on your mattress.

WorthPlaying.com and phoenixfire425 via our Forums HERE expanded on this ruling, to quote:

"In addition to jailbreaking, other exemptions announced Monday would:

• allow owners of used cell phones to break access controls on their phones in order to switch wireless carriers.
• allow people to break technical protections on video games to investigate or correct security flaws.
• allow college professors, film students and documentary filmmakers to break copy-protection measures on DVDs so they can embed clips for educational purposes, criticism, commentary...
 

Devil May Cry 5 on Capcom's mind, due to Devil May Cry 4 sales

308w ago - Devil May Cry 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi said back at E3 2007 that he wanted to make Devil May Cry 5 if Capcom let him.

This week Capcom president Haruhiro Tsujimoto announced in a press release that Capcom's fiscal year 2008 sales increased to over 83 billion Yen ($806 million), in part thanks to Devil May Cry 4's record sales of over 2 million units worldwide since its early February 2008 release, making it the fastest selling Devil May Cry game so far and taking the entire series from 7 to 9 million sold.

It now seems all but certain Capcom wants a sequel with Mr. Tsujimoto closing off the PR by saying "We hope to continue meeting and exceeding the expectations of gamers with our dedication to developing solid titles for the best gaming platforms available."

Watch the full GameTrailers interview on video:





To quote Capcom producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi's words from last year: "Continuing the storyline is always possible. However, we do work under a corporate system, so unless Capcom gives us the green light to go ahead and continue on with releasing Devil May Cry 5, 6, 11, whatnot. It's totally up to them.

However, personally I would like to continue with Devil May Cry and create more and...
