Rumor: Leaked Photos Tease Tomb Raider Reboot Multiplatform

250°
275w ago - An underground agent, reportedly working in conjunction with Four Player Co-Op, snagged some alleged [Register or Login to view links] of concept art and details for a new Tomb Raider game.

To quote: According to the text accompanying the art, Lara's new adventure will be open-world, will feature a reworked combat system and - most importantly - will serve as an origin story for the young heiress.

Anonymity breeds contempt in the gaming news world - however, this report is supported by four pieces of news that have dropped in the past two months:

1. Eidos' president said the next Tomb Raider game will "reinvigorate the franchise."
2. Crystal Dynamics is hiring folks to work on an installment in a "AAA franchise."
3. Toby Gard, the series' creator, is leading a design group for an "unannounced project."
4. Eidos is terrible at keeping its secret games under wraps.
 

Rumor: Sony's PSP2 to Feature a Quad Core Graphics Chip?

200°
276w ago - Today [Register or Login to view links] is reporting that PowerVR technology from Imagination Technologies will form the basis of the still-in-development PSP2.

The site claims to have insider sources that reckon that a quad core iteration of the low-power SGX543MP chip, codenamed "Hydra", will be present in the next generation handheld, not to be confused with the forthcoming PSPgo.

To quote: The chip itself appears to be very close indeed to the enhanced GPU experts say resides within the iPhone 3GS, providing a generational leap in performance over older PowerVR MBX processors found in the previous models.

The same technology is also found in select netbooks such as the Dell Mini 12, as part of the new low power Poulsbo chipset. The single core version of the chip has been demonstrated at CES running Quake 3 Arena at 30FPS.

The obvious difference of course is that the SGX543MP is a multicore processor, available with anything up to 16 cores on tap. According to the original report, PSP2 opts for a quad configuration offering notional specs of 133 million polygons per second, and 4Gpixels/sec fillrate, assuming that Hydra operates at the chip's low-end of 200MHz (higher speed variants are also available, presumably...
 

Rumor: PS3 Firmware 2.80 Included Cinematic 21:9 TV Support?

276w ago - According to TheSixthAxis.com (linked above), Sony's recent PS3 Firmware 2.80 Update may have included yet another 'hidden' feature that was not uncovered in the changelog compilation... specifically, Cinematic 21:9 TV support.

To quote: "The first [Register or Login to view links] was unveiled this year and is now available if you've got the cash to splash, and whilst the 2560 x 1080p resolution set sounds like a blessing for movie fans not happy with black bars on their 'regular' widescreen TVs, game developers surely won't pick up the better-than-HD resolution for some time.

That won't stop Sony pushing the actual XMB display out further than 1920 pixels, though - as far as we know HDMI 1.3 - the format used in the PS3 firmware at the moment - can support the resolution just fine and hopefully there's no reason why the PS3's OS can't too."

That being said, Sony has made no comment on this yet so it's essentially speculation until someone with a new ultra wide-screen 21:9 TV can confirm it.
 

Rumor: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves May Be Heading to PSP Go

276w ago - According to [Register or Login to view links], Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is heading to the PlayStation 3 and PSP Go consoles... the latter just coming to light over the weekend.

A mysterious screenshot was discovered by [Register or Login to view links] from the forthcoming issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, which suggests the reference to Sony's PSP Go Wikipedia entry may indeed be accurate.

However, the wording above the screenshot "New screen from Unchar... for the..." begs to differ. Of course only official verification from Sony/Naughty Dog will confirm this rumor as true, so as always time will tell.
