85w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has posted up a video today spotlighting Tekken Tag Tournament 2 powering up for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!
To quote: Though Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has been available in arcades since earlier this year in the States (and back into September in Japan), the revamped PS3 version brings numerous new characters and a new training mode that re-imagines the series' previously established mini-games.
While the main fighting mechanics of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feel familiar to anyone acquainted with the series' staccato combat style, the console version introduces a few new ways to lock horns with worthy competitors.
You can now fight opponents in several configurations - two against two, two against one, and one against one - and each of these modes is available at any time.
In matches that pit one character against two, the disadvantaged player receives a more generous life bar but obviously cannot switch fighters when the going gets rough. Conversely, the player with two fighters will have to pay close attention; in true Tekken tag form, you'll lose the round if either character is KO'd.
During the Namco Bandai Gamer's Day, the developers...
164w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a look back at PSN's The Tester Season 1 winner Will Powers today alongside a glimpse of what he's doing now.
To quote: It's been almost six months since the end of the inaugural season of "The Tester". In April, we introduced you to our first winner, Will "Cyrus" Powers.
As we prepare for the second season of "The Tester," set to premiere on Tuesday, November 2, we thought it would be a good time to catch up with Will about his experience as a QA Tester for PlayStation, how it has affected his gaming habits and impacted his trophy collection.
So what's up with Will these days? Well, here's what we learned...
Kevin Furuichi, executive producer for PlayStation Network: It has been six months since you started working at Sony. What has the experience been like?
Will Powers, winner of "The Tester": The experience overall has been a blast. Testing may not be a super glamorous position, but its importance within the industry cannot be overstated. Being able to get my hands on games six months, sometimes even a year, before they are released is still just as exhilarating as it was the first time. But, the most rewarding...
264w ago - The guys over at Mgestyk Technologies have been playing and come up with a pretty awesome melding of gaming technology dubbed Mgestyk Fusion, currently available for Windows XP and Windows Vista.
To quote the link above: If you've tried games like Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and the recent Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Lightsaber Duels on the Wii, you may have been disappointed that the in-game lightsaber does not always match how you are holding the wiimote.
Introducing Fusion from Mgestyk Technologies: Fusion is a patent-pending technology which combines Mgestyk's gesture processing with other sensor data such as from Nintendo's wiimote.
It looks pretty cool to me. It's a shame we won't see it on the PS3 until either someone hacks it for homebrew or Sony buys Nintendo.
Continued: We'll be demoing this at MIGS next week along with some of the games from our first video. What follows is a description of what the new video shows and how Mgestyk Fusion enhances gaming with a wiimote:
If you want to swing the wiimote around like a lightsaber, you will most likely not be pointing the wiimote at the Wii's sensor bar.
On the Wii console, the sensor bar allows the console...
