Valve: Left 4 Dead Could Come to PS3, 50-50 Chance

50°
317w ago - It's no secret that Valve hasn't exactly been staunch supporter of the PlayStation 3, especially given that company bossman Gabe Newell has called out the console on numerous occasions, going as far to label it as a "waste of time."

But, hey, that was nearly a year ago. Now things are different! Sales of the PS3 have gone up worldwide, making the console more viable in Valve's book. According to marketing director Doug Lombardi, there's a 50-50 chance that future titles like Left 4 Dead may come to PS3 in the future. Just don't expect it this year.

To quote: "We're always evaluating what's happening in the marketplace and certainly something that's happening in the last couple of months is that Sony's managed to sell some boxes," said Doug Lombardi.

"So whether or not you like developing for that platform, if they've got millions of people connected to that platform and buying their games you have to take it seriously."

He went on: "They're in the race now, so we've got to re-evaluate that for what it is."

PC is still its primary format, reaffirmed Lombardi, explaining that hardware similarities makes 360 its second choice.

But what are the chances of Valve opening its arms to PS3 and showing it some Left 4 Dead love? "50-50...
 

Microsoft hire comedian Seinfeld to take a bit out of Apple

317w ago - Microsoft have hired Jerry Seinfeld for a huge $10 million in order to be a pitchman for Microsoft and essentially take a bite out of an Appple. In particular, he will battle against the Mac Vs PC commercials.

To quote: The Seinfeld ads, part of the software company's new reported $300 million advertising campaign, are slated to begin running on September 4, and will feature the funnyman along with Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Although his eponymous show has been off the air for a decade, Seinfeld, thanks to re-runs, is still a very bankable pitchman who starred in a series of successful American Express ads.

The Wall Street Journal also reports that Chris Rock and Will Farrell are similarly being considered as pitchmen for Microsoft.

Nvidia GTX 280/260 55nm comes by September

50°
322w ago - Fudzilla: We said a few months ago that Nvidia drives two projects in parallel. GT200 65nm that got launched and branded as GTX 280 / 260 is out and there is a GT200 55nm chip that should be launched shortly.

Our sources are telling us that 55nm version of the chip should be ready either in late August or in September, which means that Radeon HD 4870 X2 will get some competition.

We believe that Shaders and clock of 55nm GT200 are definitely going to be higher than the 65nm and the chip itself should be a bit cooler.

This means R700 will get some better competition, and the fact that this ATI's dual card is going to end up faster than GTX 280 doesn't mean ATI has already won the war.
 

A croc comes to life in LittleBigPlanet

331w ago - Play. Create. Share. That's the mantra for the LittleBigPlanet team. We know that the "Play" aspect of the game is swell, but what about the creation aspects?

Media Molecule wants to make their creation engine as simple as possible, and they released a few images showing how a deadly crocodile can be constructed using just a few spare parts.

Playing with Legos was always fun, but something of this depth and magnitude has been almost unheard of -- at least for a mainstream audience.

Hopefully, we'll be able to showcase some original creations of our own when we get our hands on with LittleBigPlanet soon.
