Sony: Eight Days to full production, Getaway in pre-production

50°
338w ago - Sony's London Studio recently revealed to a British paper that Eight Days is now ramping up to full production. The game was first shown at Sony's E3 2006 press conference and is a crime epic set in the desert of Arizona.

The studio also revealed that a small team is working on pre-production for the next iteration of The Getaway. When Eight Days is completed the bulk of the team will then work on The Getaway.

To quote: A crime epic from SCE Studios London. Set in the desert of Arizona, the game features eight days in the bad times of the criminal element.

The game features open environments that you can run in, with fully-modeled buildings that you can exploit when the action gets too heavy on the streets and outskirts.

338w ago - Sony has revealed some more details for the launch of SingStar on May 20th in the US. There will be a stand-alone SKU with just the game for $39.99 and one with two microphones for $59.99.

The disc will contain 30 songs and the American singstore will contain over 200 songs when it launches there and will be updated each month with 25-50 new songs.

To quote: When SingStar initially launches in the US, players will be required to download a patch, approximately 20MB in size. This will enable the features of the European SingStar Vol. 2 for the American release.

This patch will add an enhanced Duet mode, which adds harmonies into Duet tracks. Remote Play has also been added: you won't be able to play the game, but you will be able to access the SingStore, queue up downloads, and visit the My SingStar Online community.
 

Has GTA IV changed Video Gaming forever?

200°
338w ago - GTA 4 goes on world-wide release tomorrow (although numerous retailers have starting selling it), and while it'll undoubtedly go down in history as one of the greatest games ever made, its effect on the industry as a whole might not be so great.

You see, GTA 4 is so brilliant, so far ahead of pretty much ever other game released on consoles to date, that it's going to be hard to get back into the groove of playing 'normal' games.

It might well be unfair to compare every future release to GTA 4, but it has set a benchmark that, even only a few years into this console generation, might not be bettered. Open-city action games are likely to feel the full impact, with THQ's Saints Row 2 and Midway's This is Vegas both looking dated before they've even been released.

It's not that they look like bad games; they just aren't going to be GTA 4. I loved the original Saints Row and, perhaps foolishly believed GTA 4 wouldn't be all that different. In reality GTA 4 seems like it's a generation ahead in terms of game design.

It would be wise for publishers to hold off on new releases for a while. GTA 4 took me 40 hours to play through, and that took quite a bit of dedication over a few days. If you're only playing it for an hour or two per day and want to dabble with online multiplayer, you're...

Valkyria Chronicles video - almost in English!

50°
338w ago - It's not that we're trying to inundate you with Valkyria Chronicles videos - but since the game has launched in Japan, the rest of the world are starting to get their own versions of videos.

This one's a mixture of new and old footage with a fancy score on top of it. The title's in English, but we still don't get to hear any voices or see any real text.

Expect that soon enough, though!
