Confirmed: No Trophy Support for Fallout 3 at Launch

50°
315w ago - Bethesda's Vice President of Marketing Pete Hines has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 version of Fallout 3 will not include Trophy support when the game hits stores later this year, but did not rule out the possibility of the feature being added at a later date.

"Not at launch," said Hines, during an interview with PSU.com to be published later today.

"It remains to be seen what we do down the road. It wasn't something we were able to incorporate into the game for launch."

With Fallout 3 set to release on October 28 in the U.S., Bethesda will have a few options in terms of additional PlayStation 3 support, as Sony's PlayStation Home service is set to launch around the same time frame.

316w ago - From the Press Release:

PRESS RELEASE: RECYCLED PLAYSTATIONS BECOME BRITISH DESIGNER CHAIRS

London-based Pli Design Ltd (http://www.plidesign.co.uk) is launching its latest eco-friendly product, a chair made from 100% recycled games consoles. The launch takes place on Wednesday September 10, 2008 in London, at the HQ of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

The British manufactured 'Reee® chair' has a plastic seat and back made entirely from recycled PlayStation®2 computer games consoles*. Unlike most recycled plastics, which come from a variety of sources, the plastic in the Reee chair is entirely from a single source, making it the first of its kind in the country.

The Reee chair - which is available for the contract, education and domestic markets - was conceived at the annual Eden Project Suppliers conference in Cornwall, where the Pli team discussed the possibilities for reusing high-quality plastic from waste electronics products with other manufacturers, including Sony Computer Entertainment.

Each chair uses 2.4 kg of recycled plastic and the chair parts are designed to be disassembled at the end of their life and recycled again and again. The production of recycled plastic requires a fraction of the energy used for 'virgin' plastic that comes straight from...
 

Why the Xbox 360 was Forced to Launch First

50°
317w ago - In 2005 the Xbox 360 was launched in North America with a price point of $500 for the premium model and $400 for the "core" model. At this time the Xbox 360 was the only "next generation" console on the market, and it would stay like that for at least a year.

Originally, Sony was to launch their console, the PS3 in early 2006, however the console was delayed into November of 2006.

Weeks after launch many found flaws in the system and wondered why they were their. It seemed like many people forgot about Sony's original plan of releasing their console a few months after the 360 because they constantly refer to it has Microsoft's own greed to launch a year before the competition, although the competition was to launch just months after.

Later it was revealed that Microsoft had "skipped" some of the details when it came to the development of the Xbox 360, but why?

1. "Last Generation" Microsoft took second place to Sony, they didn't want a repeat of that so they decided to get a few months on them. To do this they of course had to skip certain details on their check list of things to do.

2. In mid 2005 NVIDIA, the developer of the Xbox's GPU ended production. Without a GPU Microsoft was unable to manufacture Xbox's to sell so they had to go...
 

Windows 7: What will it do? When will it launch? Here's the lowdown

100°
317w ago - Windows 7, the next version of Windows, is closer than you might think, with early copies already in the hands of OEMs and trusted partners. Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer demonstrated an early version of its user interface at the D6: All Things Digital conference in May but Steven Sinofsky - who took over Windows 7 after his success getting Office out of the door on time, time after time - is well known for keeping things close to his chest.

There's been very little solid information about just what's going to go into Microsoft's flagship OS, just plenty of speculation and rumour. So what can you expect from Windows 7? Here's what we predict...

1. Windows 7 won't be a from-the-ground up rewrite of Windows. Instead it'll be an evolution of the NT kernel as updated in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, according to Windows Product Manager Chris Flores. This will mean that applications should run without needing significant changes, and there will be an upgrade path from Windows Vista (though things will be harder for Windows XP users).

The rumoured "MinWin" kernel is most unlikely - though it's likely that there'll be lessons learned from Windows Server 2008's modular architecture, which Microsoft could use to offer a version of Windows 7 that runs on cheap...
