Sony date The Last Guy headed for PSN in Japan

50°
334w ago - Sony Japan have announced that PSN title The Last Guy (314mb) will be available in Japan on July 31, for 500 yen. Below is also a gameplay video of The Last Guy, courtesy of killingthee via YouTube.

To quote: In The Last Guy Japan Premium, you play as Last Guy, who's come from the Himalayas to save the people of Asakusa, one of Tokyo's hot tourist spots, from attacking zombies. Your job is simple: find people remaining in the Asakusa area and lead them to special escape zones.

As suggested in the original teaser trailer from two weeks back, the game makes use of real life aerial photos of the Asakusa area. Judging by the few screenshots Sony handed out today and the new trailer video that was posted at the game's official site, gameplay appears to be viewed from a strictly overhead perspective.

Kojima: PS3 is a Monster Machine

400°
335w ago - In a recent interview with the BBC's Click program, Hideo Kojima, creator of the acclaimed Metal Gear franchise, has revealed that the first few years of development on MGS4 were "trial and error".

"We started to work on Metal Gear Solid 4 four years ago, after finishing Metal Gear Solid 3," said Kojima-san. "At that time we really didn't know what the PS3 was going to be like, so the first two years was all about experimenting, developing and trial and error."

"In the last two years, we've known what the PS3 is capable of, the specifications of it and how we can utilise it," he continued. "PS3 is a monster machine. That's why it took so much time to create Metal Gear Solid 4."

Kojima-san also acknowledged the early access to the PS3 that Sony allowed them because of the importance of the Metal Gear Solid series for the PlayStation brand.

"Since we're developing only for the Sony format, of course Sony has given us a lot of advantage before the actual release of the hardware," he said. "So we had many meetings with them to discuss the specifications. We analysed this black box quite a lot before it was released, and we experimented with it and we gave Sony a lot of feedback."

Though it's early to talk in depth about MAG, we can definitely quell some fears we've already heard from you about how MAG will need to compromise on gameplay to support its size. Well, it may be massive but it is an action shooter at its core. You can run around and shoot enemies, throw grenades, and drive vehicles just like any other shooter except with MAG you'll do it with up to 256 players.
