Daily Video Blog Rocketboom coming to PS3, PSP, and I-Link TVs

50°
324w ago - Daily video blog Rocketboom has handed over its distribution and ad sales to Sony Pictures in return for a seven figue guarantee plus a share of the revenues. Rocketboom will be distributed on Crackle as well as other Sony platforms including PS3, PSP and Bravia I-Link TVs.

To quote: Rocketboom founder Andrew Baron says he went with Sony because of Sony's distribution strengths and the deal allows him to maintain control of the business. (Whereas selling the business to another media buyer, such as WallStrip did to CBS a year ago for $5 million, would have required him to give up his baby).

The deal is structured as a distribution and advertising deal, and sounds like it could lead to a closer relationship or outright sale if things go well. But if they don't, Rocketboom would regain complete control of distribution and ad sales after the contract expires.





Rocketboom's current distribution through YouTube, iTunes, Tivo, and elsewhere will remain intact. Sony will sell ads across those distribution channels as well. Baron claims more than Rocketboom is watched more than one million times a month across all channels, and sometimes spike to several million views.

Naughty Dog only using 30 or 40 Percent of the PS3's Power

324w ago - Richard Lemarchand, from Uncharted: Drake's Fortune developer Naughty Dog, has said that he thinks they are probably only using around 30 or 40 percent of the power of the PS3 at the moment and that the PS3 has a great, untapped potential.

To quote: Lemarchand can talk about another interesting subject, though: the prospect that, in the near future, multi-platform PS3 games will outshine the versions running on rival consoles: "There's a set of tools called Edge that were developed on the Naughty Dog premises, actually, by a group of very, very senior games programmer, some from Naughty Dog and some from elsewhere. I think it's tremendously visionary of Sony to make these tools, which are largely low-level libraries."

Before proceeding, we need to explain a little of the unique manner in which the PS3's much-admired, phenomenally powerful Cell processor works. Essentially, it contains eight mini-processors called Synergistic Processor Units (SPUs), six of which can be given tasks to perform at any given time. Lemarchand continues: "It's code that runs on SPUs, and it's to do with things like animation compression, generalised compression and rendering optimisations.

These guys are really old-school programmers: guys who are always looking to shave another cycle off...
 

Study shows PS3 Gamers are Buying Movies too

50°
324w ago - A new consumer survey from ABI Research has revealed that while there is a widespread reluctance for consumers to commit to a Blu-ray player in the near future.

ABI Research say that there is a bright spot, however, with the PS3 "rapidly becoming a favorite for hard-core gamers and so the installed base of sockets for Blu-ray discs continues to climb."

To quote: "While you might think gamers purchase fewer movie discs that others, we didn't see any significant evidence of that in our results," said an ABI rep.

"PS3 console shipments will go a long way to help bring down manufacturing costs and drive down Blu-ray player prices."
