Socom Confrontation 1.50 Update Details, 1.60 Plans Revealed

200°
278w ago - The Socom Confrontation Online Team has announced the following news, on both the 1.50 and 1.60 patch updates respectively:

The 1.50 Update for SOCOM: Confrontation is feature complete and currently in test. Due to the number and scope of the feature set of 1.50 the testing cycle has taken longer than anticipated.

We remain committed to releasing this patch as soon as the remaining open issues are resolved. It is extremely important to us to make sure the 1.50 update is as problem free as possible when it is released and we are working towards that goal rather than pushing it out as is on a specific date.

A number of features in 1.50 are of such a scale that it will not be possible for us to fully predict how they will behave before public deployment. An example of this is the tournaments, each of which can accommodate 1000s of players.

To account for this, we will ramp the size and number of tournaments during the first weeks after release to monitor and address any issues which may arise. We have also been working on a 1.60 Update which will incorporate any fixes that are required as Tournaments and Clan Ladders become fully populated.

We are happy to announce that the 1.60 Update will also contain additional features...
 

Ubisoft: No Plans for PS3 Version of Splinter Cell: Conviction

400°
279w ago - Speaking on the company's [Register or Login to view links], developer Ubisoft stated, "Splinter Cell Conviction is a true Microsoft exclusive title and there are no plans to have Splinter Cell Conviction on other platforms."

The firm elaborated on the decision to remain exclusive to 360, describing the Splinter Cell franchise as being 'historically linked' with Microsoft consoles beginning with the original title in 2002.

To quote: "There are several reasons behind this choice. First of all, Splinter Cell games are historically linked with Microsoft platforms.

The first Splinter Cell on the original Xbox was one of the first games to fully exploit the console's technical possibilities," added the company.

"At that time, Microsoft really believed in the game potential and provided strong support to promote it. So, there is a "link of heart" between the franchise and the platform. Some games are like this (think of Final Fantasy for instance)."

"The second reason behind this choice is purely linked to production. Having a single target platform means that we can optimize the game even further, because we only have one type of - console - hardware to support."

Bethesda: No Plans for any Fallout 3 DLC for the PlayStation 3

300°
296w ago - Recently TheBitBag received a few emails asking if Bethesda will release any DLC for Fallout 3 on the PlayStation 3. To quote:

I can't believe I didn't ask Pete this question when I [Register or Login to view links] him. I did what any journalist would do... I sent him an email.

Pete's response was quick and straight to the jugular:

Fallout 3 DLC is for Xbox 360 and PC.

Now in yesterday's interview, Pete told me that they always planned on releasing DLC. So it's not like Microsoft came in and asked them to create it like they did with Rockstar.

Maybe Microsoft just liked what they were doing and bought the exclusive rights across the board. This means that any DLC released for Fallout 3 will always be 360/PC exclusive.
 

Mozilla Reveals Plans for Firefox 3.2, Ubiquity in Browser

298w ago - Mozilla is planning to include simple-text commands and desktop Web apps in the next version of Firefox. Firefox 3.2 will see the company build the Mozilla Labs project, Ubiquity, into the browser.

Ubiquity allows users to type natural language phrases into the browser to perform certain tasks, such as typing "map 10 Downing Street" to instantly see a Google map of that address, or "share-on-delicious" to bookmark the site you're currently visiting on the social news site.

Ubiquity, which is already available in [Register or Login to view links] form, currently requires users to press Ctrl + Space to enter the text commands, but Mozilla is aiming to integrate the feature into the address bar (or "Awesome Bar") for the next version of the browser.

Firefox architect Mike Connor said it's part of a plan to develop more ambitious features for the browser. "We're looking at where we can incorporate features from Mozilla Labs," he told PC Pro in an exclusive interview.

"We're looking for more pure innovation than just incrementally getting better. It's nice to try stuff where we don't know if it's going to work."

"All the stuff we set out to do in the beginning is already done," Connor, who's been working on Firefox since the days it was...
