Rumor: Confirmation that Haze is just a timed PS3 exclusive?

50°
329w ago - On completion of the Haze demo gamers have been greeted with the following message:

"Exclusive on the PlayStation 3 system: 4-Player CO-OP campaign."

This seems to confirm the belief that it is just a timed exclusive, and that the 4-Player CO-OP campaign is something that will be exclusive to the PS3.

Does this confirm the rumors that the PC and Xbox 360 versions are still coming? Maybe Ubisoft has let the cat out of the bag and the cancelled versions for the PC and Xbox 360 were just postponed so the PS3 could see some love from Ubisoft?

Time will tell, but it is strange wording to say the least.
 

PS3 Mirror's Edge won't be in 1080p, DICE confirms

50°
329w ago - Dice Studio has said that Mirror's Edge will not be in 1080p but both the 360/PS3 versions will be in 720p.

Dice say however that we can expect "crisp, clear texture resolutions".

To quote: Decker said: "It's more about in certain situations you're going to see very crisp, clear texture resolutions there and, again, this is more for the tech-file, somebody like me who's sitting up there and looking at every single little detail and saying, OK what's the difference between this one and this one, putting them side by side."
 

Dev: The PS3 hasn't been pushed to its limits yet!

100°
329w ago - Sean Decker, the General Manager of EA's DICE Studio has said that we are not starting to see the limits of the PS3's capabilities now and it will be a while until the PS3 is pushed to the edge.

"Oh no. I've been around for two different console cycles now, this is my third one, and it's always the case that the first several years everybody's exploring the bounds of it, and it's not until several years down the road that you're able to squeeze every drop out of it." said the GM.

To quote: He added: "Look at games like God of War. On the PS2 it looks brilliant. Try and do that game at the beginning of the PS2, wow, you would have such a hard time doing that. And the same thing's going to be true for this as well.

Over the next several years on all the major platforms you're going to see all the developers squeezing every little bit out of it. It's going to be a while before you really push it to the edge."
 

Call of Duty 5 not to be set in WWII?

400°
329w ago - The next Call of Duty game may not delve back into familiar WWII territory after all, as Activision CEO Mike Griffith reveals that the fifth game will take the series to a "new military theatre".

Despite rumours and strong reactions that the series would be returning to the over-used WWII era, Griffith revealed: "We'll bring the intensity of the recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title to a new military theatre to engage our significantly larger user base which nearly doubled last year as new users came into the franchise," according to Gamespot.

Another modern setting would get our vote (we're bored of those crappy 1940s guns and sluggish propeller-powered planes).

Griffith also revealed that the next James Bond game, in development as Treyarch, will use the CoD 4 engine, which is good news. The first good 007 game since GoldenEye? Maybe, just maybe...
 

Logitech Driving Force GT Review for PS3

50°
329w ago - I was well and truly stuck about a third of the way through the A Class races in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. When you're starting in last place and playing catch up with an equally powerful car, making just one mistake means you're toast - especially on a speedway-style circuit.

I'd all but given up on the thought of beating the game until Logitech told me they were sending over a Driving Force GT. It probably won't come as a shock when I tell you that Gran Turismo 5 Prologue comes alive when it's played with a force-feedback wheel.

The jump between a Sixaxis and the Driving Force GT is of a similar magnitude to the jump between the 8-way digital joysticks of the 16-bit era and the dual-analogs of recent years. You can feel the car lose traction, and intuitively wrestle the back end into submission.

All of a sudden I could actually compete. Not only could I reliably take someone under heavy brakes, I could gently guide a car around the High Speed Ring without losing traction on the corners and losing valuable speed. A couple of hours later I'd beaten the game and was going back through the B and C Class races taking first place where my prior best was second or third.

The step up in realism and immersion this wheel provides is amazing, especially for those of you who've...
