Dualshock 3 Controller delayed in Europe!

550°
320w ago - According to toy shop Bartsmit, the highly anticipated Dualshock 3 controller won't be out in Europe until 1st July.

If thats the case, then MGS4 fans may be extremely disappointed with the news, as the contender for game of the year is probably one of the best excuses to shell out for one.

The controller offers rumble (for supported games) along with improved buttons and unit weight. It's been out in America and Japanese territories for a few months now and over 30 games support it already.

For those desperate for one however, importing from the US or Japan seems to be the best option at the moment, and it isn't too expensive either.

When we here a solid release date for Europe, you will be the first to know.

Yoko Shimomura anticipates no Musical Limitations on PS3

320w ago - While most of this interview with Yoko Shimomura is regarding the release of the Drammatica album, an orchestral compilation of 20 years of Shimomura's games (Kingdom Hearts, Seiken Densetsu, etc), there's a stint at the end which really shows the potential the PS3 has for allowing composers to really dish out some serious musical numbers.

After talking a bit about utilizing streaming as a means to create more complex musical numbers (and noting how things like the Nintendo DS require more clever ways to create excellent music, but stating that can be fun, too), Shimomura said that "with the PlayStation 2, sound production was mainly based on the internal sound chip, not streaming.

It was a constant battle with memory and limitations, such as the number of sound channels. With the PlayStation 3, I'm expecting to have it sound the way I please, without limitations."

So rest assured, any Square Enix titles on the PS3 will have, as always, impressive soundtracks. Now without limitations thanks to streaming.

As with Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, it's clear that we can expect visuals that rival even some of the more impressive PS2 titles.

A release date for Birth By Sleep has yet to be announced.




 

Official MGS4 Strategy Guide Author gives Top 12 Tips!

320w ago - James Price, part of the team at Piggyback finishing up 'Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots: The Complete Official Guide' has given his top 12 tips for the game.

1. Life Gauge

Keeping the Life Gauge topped up is vital, but it's just as important not to panic and keep filling the gauge unnecessarily with precious items. Though you can replenish it with healing objects such as Rations and Noodles, you should take care not to waste them - especially on higher difficulty levels. Using a Ration when Snake's Life Gauge is 80% full, for example, is plain foolish. You usually don't need to even think about refilling the gauge until it drops below 25%. During boss fights or difficult skirmishes, you should instead equip Rations, Noodles or Regain and position them as an "active" item. Once Snake's health reaches zero, these will be automatically used until your stocks are exhausted.

One other method of restoring Snake's health is simply to find a safe hiding place and let him stand still. After a few seconds the Life Gauge will slowly start to creep back up. If you crouch or go prone, it will refill more quickly. If you have good cover, you'll find that this even works during boss battles. This can be a great way of refilling your Life Gauge for free - essential when...
