Video: ModNation Racers PS3: Bringing Back the Split-Screen

200°
244w ago - Today United Front Games Designer Mat Thomas has shared details, including hints of custom soundtracks coming, alongside a video dubbed ModNation Racers PS3: Bringing Back the Split-Screen.

To quote: There are two multiplayer experiences that we were keen to deliver in ModNation Racers.

First, there was the online race experience (up to 12 players), while the second was the couch racing experience.

It is hard to beat the multiplayer experience on the couch against friends - I think we can all remember this experience from other games we have enjoyed, and we were keen to make sure we delivered the same frantic experience for ModNation Racers.

We wanted to make sure we delivered two-player split-screen. From the start, we wanted our two-player split-screen to work online. [Register or Login to view links] enables you and a friend to go online and play the game together.

This makes for intense competition and a lot of fun! Do you play together, helping each other out or do you take your friend out at every available opportunity? You can play action races and pure races together.

More importantly, two players can play together on any tracks developed by United Front Games or anyone online. It makes for an almost endless...
 

Video: CES 2010 Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Off-Screen 3D Gameplay

100°
255w ago - IGN has shared their experience and a video from this year's CES show in Las Vegas while getting a peek at some Gran Turismo 5 PS3 (off-screen) 3D gameplay.

The GT5 video is available below, and to quote: "Sony had three demo stations set up, each with a brand-new 3D-enabled Bravia television and a pair of active shutter glasses.

According to the rep showing off the games, 1080p HD content does not work well with traditional 3D glasses such as Real3D lenses used at many movie theaters. Only active shutter glasses can properly "decode" the dual image and translate it into believable 3D.

The 3D Gran Tursimo demo, however, made better use of the 3D despite not looking nearly as crisp as Gran Turismo 5. There was a definite sensation of depth as your car drifted around corners with railings and signs sliding past you.

Following the demo lap, you get a replay of your performance. When the camera swings to look inside the car, your driver really appears to occupy 3D space inside the vehicle.

The steering wheel, the dash, the seat - they don't just look like they are operating on separate planes, like a Viewmaster. It all really comes together and looks as if you are peering in on a 3D scene."






 

Nintendo to Release New DSi with Larger Screen in Japan

265w ago - Update: [Register or Login to view links] has now confirmed that a Euro DSiLL will arrive in Q1 2010 at higher price of DSi, to quote:

"Nintendo today confirms that a new Nintendo DSi XL console is launching in Europe in the first quarter of 2010. The retail price of the Nintendo DSi XL is expected to be higher than that of the Nintendo DSi. Further details will be released soon."

According to a report from Nikkei news service (via [Register or Login to view links] translation by neo2046 of a [Register or Login to view links] post), Nintendo will release a new DSi LL in Japan this year (2009) with a screen that is approximately 4 inches.

For those curious, the screen on the current DSi is 3.25 inches.

Overall it's not a major difference in appearance, but some gamers may simply find the larger screen easier to interact with.

Besides this slight cosmetic change, everything else about the DSi will remain the same. It will have no additional processing power or a higher quality camera.

Best of all the price will remain at the standard price of 18900 yen (around $200). No one is...
