SCEE Clarifies Naughty Dog Comments on 2.80 Firmware Secret

50°
268w ago - Yesterday Naughty Dog's Sam Thompson stated in a Comic-Con 2009 interview that the PS3 Firmware 2.80 update adds more memory.

Today, SCEE has clarified these comments explaining that the Naughty Dog rep apparently got confused due to the Comic-Con excitement.

To quote: "There's no secret in firmware 2.80. Naughty Dog were actually talking about their engine 2.0, but in the ComicCon rush they simply got confused and said 2.80 referring to the latest firmware," SCEE told Gamezine.

Additionally, Naughty Dog community manager Arne Meyer has stated the following on NeoGAF forums:

"This was just a typical blunder with all the info and people coming up to us constantly at the PS booth at San Diego ComicCon.

"He was actually referring to Naughty Dog Engine 2.0 updates we made. We had just been making sure at the event that all the PS3s brought in were on FW 2.80, since that is what that build needed to run on, so I have no doubt it was top of mind."
 

PS3 Motion Controller Demoed by SCEE at Develop Conference

At SCEE's coding keynote presentation, the company stressed that the hardware is still a prototype. The PS3 Motion Controller was shown with the same Zelda-style bow and arrow demo seen at E3.

To quote: Sitting in the front row, our impressions of the motion mapping indicate that the system definitely has room for improvement; the spatial accuracy of the pulling back of the bow didn't match the on-screen action precisely, and other wii-like inaccuracies were obvious.

That said, there's plenty of time for SCEE to get it right, and we were lucky to see the controller at all given that it spent the last four days in customs after getting shipped in from the US.

"It can track true 3D, whereever I move it will fully track on every axis," explained SCEE developer services boss Kish Hirani.

In a demo of the archery game shown at E3, SCEE's Colin...
