Namco Unleashes Another in Soulcalibur IV

50°
321w ago - First came Yoda, and with him, Darth Vader. And though both would take to the field of battle in Soulcalibur IV, they would do so across seperate planes of existence, perhaps seperate timelines, wherein one small shift lead to the appearance of one on the PS3, and the other on the Xbox 360.

But now, there is another.

Such came the proclamation from Namco-Bandai earlier today, as they revealed that the Jedi Master and the Sith Lord would not be the only ones engaged in lightsaber combat and wielding Force powers on the stage of history. Both versions of the anticipated weapon-combat fighting game will include some new blood, in the form of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.

The Secret Apprentice will appear straight from LucasArts' upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed title, which takes place between Episodes III and IV, wherein Vader trains his own understudy in secret, carrying out Vader's orders while working to not expose his existance.

This will mark the first time since the poorly-received Masters of Teras Kasi that the Star Wars franchise will have been privy to one-on-one lightsaber combat in a true fighting game sense. SCIV will arrive on its respective consoles on July 29th, while Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be available for all consoles come September 16th,...
 

Ubisoft Urges Sony To Act On Directionless PSP!

100°
321w ago - Ubisoft has called on Sony to act quickly to stop publishers abandoning the PSP as a viable format.

Speaking exclusively to GamesIndustry.biz, UK managing director Rob Cooper has said that the format lacks direction, with Sony unsure of how to market a machine he sees as over-priced and too technical for the mainstream consumer.

"I think that Sony is disappointed with sales and it's unsure as to which way to take it," said Cooper in an interview published today.

"Sony needs to show us a bit more about what its plans are to convince the publisher to invest lots more money into it. Especially when you've got the DS selling at such a tremendous pace.

"I suppose it's almost too technical for the casual person, those that are buying the DS at the moment, who want a few buttons and not a lot more. It's so simple what [Nintendo] has done. That's where I think Sony has gone a little bit too complicated, they've over-specced it, the price is too high and they need to go back to the drawing board and start again," he added.

Cooper doesn't think it's an issue with software pricing, rather Sony hasn't communicated to publishers clearly what direction the machine is going to take in the future.

"I don't think it's a pricing issue," he admitted. "As a publisher...

Kojima Productions Responds to MGS4 NDA Complaints

50°
321w ago - Ryan Payton, assistant producer at Kojima Productions, has said that they asked reviewers to avoid the following MGS4 topics, mainly because they may spoil the experience for some players: Install times, Length of cutscenes (the ending in particular), Number of environments, Opening "movie", Product placement, Plus a half dozen story-specific items.

Speaking of cut-scenes Payton says the game requires an eight minute install, as well as a number of two to three-minute installs between acts.

Tp quote: Believe it or not, I've been so busy working on a special surprise for MGS4 buyers (that not even those who have leaked copies of the game can spoil! Haha!), that I haven't had time to catch up on most of the pre-launch excitement.

Scanning the net today, I came across that 90-minute cutscene rumor, and a red-faced Adam Sessler, who was obviously very upset about the restrictions placed on MGS4 reviews.

Adam asks at the end of his Soapbox clip if he was rambling. On the contrary, I think he voiced some really important concerns about the restrictions placed on MGS4 reviewers.

In light of this, I took a look at the list of restrictions and found that some items are outdated and require more explanation.

We asked reviewers to avoid the following topics:
