Sixaxis not sensitive enough for aiming in Resident Evil 5

300°
321w ago - Jun Takeuchi has said that the PlayStation 3's Sixaxis controller wasn't a viable option for aiming in Resident Evil 5.

Responding to an inquiry from a European journalist, who raised the prospect of a PS3 control system similar to Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition, Takeuchi said Sony's much-maligned motion-sensing controller "was not quite sensitive enough for that".

Takeuchi expressed his fondness for the PS3, though, calling it "a great system". "We're really pleased with it, and certainly as with other developers we did have problems getting to grips with it at first, but now understanding how it works it allows us to do a lot of things we couldn't do before," he said through a translator at Capcom's Captivate 08 event in Las Vegas.
 

Sony: Qore won't affect availability of great content on PSN

50°
321w ago - A Qore introduction video is available below, and Sony rep amurphy has already responded to some of the angry comments on its US Blog about its monthly lifestyle gaming program 'Qore'.

One comment asked if demos were going to be exclusive to Qore from now on, or if they will still be free. Sony replied: "If you purchase Qore, you will have access to exclusive content that would not be available otherwise - it does not impact the availability of the great content found on PSN, nor does it change our free play model."

The response probably won't mean much to most people who feel they are basically taking stuff that would have been free normally and charging for it.

PS3 Home 'Open Working BETA' Still On Track for 2008

300°
321w ago - Sony's long-promised PlayStation 3 virtual world Home is still on track for a 2008 release, although it'll likely stay in BETA.

While talking to senior director of PlayStation Network Susan Panico yesterday about Sony's new online PS3 magazine Qore, we got very briefly onto the subject of Home.

Saying that the software is still due for release at the end of the year, Panico noted that the "rollout will be similar to Gmail," describing what will launch this year as an "open, working BETA."

I certainly hope it's not that similar to Gmail, or it'll never get out of BETA. :P
