262w ago - Now that we're aware of Sony's intentions to ship 3D TVs and 3D PS3 games in 2010, today they have released a commercial showcasing these plans to bring 3D into the living room next year.

To quote: "They talk about releasing 3D for their Bravia TV's, PS3, and Blu-ray players as well.

While they do not offer any specifics on exactly when we'll see these technologies, they do say that it will be coming some time next year."

The commercial can be viewed in the video below. Enjoy!




 

Video: New Assassin's Creed 2 Full PS3 Walkthrough is Available

200°
262w ago - A new video was released today of the upcoming Assassin's Creed II by Ubisoft featuring a full guided walkthrough by the production manager.

The video shows the stores, where Ezio buys poison. The poison used on an enemy to assassinate a target. Ezio also accepts a secondary mission, unlike those in the first game.

Further through the video, Ezio hires mercenaries to distract some guards followed almost directly by an awesome double hidden blade kill.

The walkthrough ends with a Prince of Persia style challenge room, that rewards Ezio with some sort of clay disc, although I am unsure as to what the exact reward was.

Anyways the video is below.

262w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell is back with the second part of the PS3 Motion Controller R&D Interview today.

To quote: Last week, we introduced Part I in a series of posts focusing on the recently announced PlayStation motion controller. Senior Researcher, Richard Marks, shed some light on the PlayStation Eye's camera technology and how the motion controller works.

We know you guys are eager to learn more, so this week we're talking to Anton Mikhailov, a software engineer (and right hand man to Richard Marks) in SCEA's Research & Development department. You may recognize Anton from the motion controller demonstration at this year's E3 presentation.

Anton was gracious enough to break down the new controller's PVC origins and some of the possible applications for this new technology. Check out the video below for more details.





Next week, we'll be posting Part III so be sure to stop by the PlayStation Blog for more exclusive motion controller info.

That's right; starting on September 29th, there will be an open multiplayer demo available to all. What kind of content the demo will offer isn't known, yet. It will be different from the closed beta from June, though. If it'll be different from the GameStop beta isn't known."

Video: PS3's New 3D Mode, Coming in 2010 to All Existing Games

650°
263w ago - Today Engadget (linked above) was able to test out Wipeout HD on Sony's PlayStation 3 being played in 3D, and managed to record a video of it below.

To quote: "Especially for something like Wipeout HD, whose neon-infused tracks make for an almost too convenient example of rapidly approaching vanishing points, we'd say 3D could really be a quasi-"killer app" for consoles going forward - especially if those fancy new motion controllers don't catch on for Microsoft and Sony.

In many ways, 3D just seems to make more sense in a video game than for a movie, and the whole problem of finding content to deliver in the format has already been solved: a software update for the PS3 sometime in 2010 will enable it to provide a 3D viewing experience to "all" existing games on the system.

We're sure there will be some exceptions, but it sounds very promising. The console itself pumps out a quite regular signal over HDMI, which the TV syncs up with your 3D glasses. A 200Hz TV, for instance, alternates 1080p frames, with 100Hz for each eye.

Of course, you'll need a brand new TV, but at least it won't be restricted to just Sony televisions."
