244w ago - In keeping with the PlayStation Beach Resort theme we have going today, here is another bit of related news.

Siliconera (linked above) has posted up some pictures (below) taken from Korea's world sand sculpting championship where Sony made giant PlayStation 3 (dubbed "SandStation 3") and PSP sand sculptures.

To quote: Donghae City was the held the first Korean Invitational World Sand Sculpting Championship. What does this have to with video games?

Sony Computer Entertainment Korea showed up and joined the sand sculpting fun.

That's what SCEK made and they seem quite proud of it since they sent out a news bulletin reporting their marketing stunt.

To quote: "Up until now, after releasing our PS3 and XBox 360 games, we have brought them to Wii.

Soulcalibur Makes its Portable Debut on Sony's PSP Console

259w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell confirms the news today that Soulcalibur will indeed be making its portable debut on Sony's PSP console.

To quote: Soulcalibur is officially coming to the PSP this summer. Called Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, this marks the series' first foray into handheld consoles... and of course, what better place to debut than the PSP.

Yesterday, Namco Bandai invited us to San Francisco for the unveiling, where a demo of Broken Destiny proved that it is already looking graphically impressive on the PSP. While Namco is remaining relatively tight-lipped on specifics for the time being, I fired off a few questions to Director Noriyuki Hiyama.





Unfortunately we were shooting in a loud room speaking through a translator, but I think you'll get the point about the new characters, multiplayer and the possibility of secret content.

Check out the vid for his responses. And drop us a note with your burning questions, as we'll most likely be getting more time with the game/team at E3 in June!
 

GDC '09: Insomniac Makes Available PS3 Water Tech for Devs

50°
264w ago - Insomniac Games Engine Director Mike Acton announced today that the PS3 Water Tech code is now freely available for developers to use:

Hello from GDC 09! My name is Mike Acton and I'm the Engine Director at Insomniac Games. Last year at GDC we announced our Nocturnal Initiative and how we were going to use that to share some of the source code and research that happens here at Insomniac Games with the industry as a whole.

I'm really pleased to say that over the last year we've seen a lot of good responses to that initiative. From individual students, to large studios and publishers, and even companies outside the industry, we've seen that people are interested in using what we have offered and contributing back ideas and changes.





Nocturnal is really about giving back to the industry. We know that we're here because we learned from those that came before us and we have a responsibility to give back in turn.

We take that responsibility very seriously and so we've worked hard to make sure we've added regularly to both our research documentation and source code over the last year. Just about every two weeks...

271w ago - Senior Development Director David Seeholzer shared just what makes Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 for PS3 the Ultimate Edition today as follows:

Hi all, my name is David Seeholzer and I am the Senior Development Director for Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Ultimate Edition. You might be asking yourself why we are calling it the 'Ultimate Edition' of Red Alert 3.

I wanted to share some insight into the cool extras and bonus content we are making exclusive for you guys, as well as shed a little light on the development process and our future plans for the title on PS3.

Check out the Red Alert 3 page on the PS Store for the Ultimate Edition Theme and our first sneak peak trailer of the PS3 version.





Red Alert found its humble beginnings over a decade ago on PC and has since seen 2 sequels, several expansion packs, and now, is making its debut on the PS3 console. Fortunately the power of the PS3 and the Blu-ray medium has afforded us some extra luxuries that weren't available to us previously.

The most noticeable difference you'll see in the Ultimate Edition on PS3 is an increase the visual quality of the game so that it truly stands up to HD Blu-ray definition. A perfect example of this is what you will see in...
