Video: Mojang Outlines 10 Tips for Playing Minecraft on PS3

50°
44w ago - Mojang's Owen Hill outlined 10 tips alongside a video today for those playing Minecraft on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Hi again guys, Owen from Mojang, here. Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition launched a few days ago. We thought it would be nice to get some tips from the developers to help you learn the basics.

I asked around the office and gathered these for you. Hope they help!

1. Never dig straight down! It's a lot harder to get back to the surface, and you might end up dropping into lava. Lava is uncomfortably hot.

2. Never dig straight up! You might end up with a head full of sand, gravel, or the melty hot stuff we mentioned earlier.

3. If you come to a junction while mining, and one of the routes leads upwards, take that one. Explore the safe options first, and then go adventuring deep underground.

4. Always watch your back in dark places! There might be something scary behind you... waaah!

5. Make sure you bring torches. Place them first, then collect the resources later.
 

CCP Games Outlines Dust 514 on PS3: The New Player Experience

50°
55w ago - CCP Games developer CCP Greyscale outlined what he calls the New Player Experience in Dust 514 on the PS3 entertainment system today.

To quote: Greetings, Mercenaries. Our motivation for the release of Uprising 1.5 was to do whatever we felt necessary to improve the chances of new players making it past Day One of playing DUST 514.

The first step was to consider what sort of players we were aiming at, and decide which teaching approach to take.

Our target audience is, for the most part, gamers who are familiar with other console first-person shooters and want to try something a little more interesting. This led us to focus primarily on teaching the differences between DUST and other FPS games, rather than trying to teach people, for example, what a gun is and how to move around.

To accomplish this, we considered two major approaches: instruction-driven and objective-driven. An instruction-driven approach ensures that players are clearly shown what to do at each point along the way.

Commonly this means highlighting every interaction, locking out everything else, and ensuring that every single step is explained.

An objective-driven approach, by contrast, tends towards giving players goals to complete, and telling them just enough to let them figure...

CCP Outlines War and Profit in DUST 514 for PlayStation 3

50°
97w ago - CCP's Eino Joas has outlined war and profit in DUST 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system today.

Below are the details, to quote: The mercenary life is grand, but how do you put the "profit" into intergalactic warfare for fun and profit?

I mean, we all love to see new places (and blow them up) and meet new people (and blow them up), but you're not just doing this for your health. So let's talk about how DUST 514 rewards your effort.

There are three things you can come away with from a battle: money, skill points, and salvage, and here's how you get them:

Money

ISK is the primary currency in the EVE Universe and a necessity for fighting wars. You will earn ISK from each battle you fight. The size of the reward depends on your contribution and the cost of the battle. Those who contribute more are rewarded handsomely, but all mercs are guaranteed a solid income.

A portion of the reward pool for each battle depends on the value of items destroyed in the battle. If the battle saw countless vehicles and expensive prototype gear destroyed, everyone is in for bigger rewards. ISK rewards are calculated as follows for each participant:

Base rewards: Every mercenary receives basic compensation for each battle they fight....
