50°
124w ago - Sorcery Creative Director Brian Upton of Santa Monica Studios has shared a video today showcasing the making of Sorcery, which spotlights the magical technology of the PlayStation Move controller.

Sorcery will be available in stores in North America on Tuesday, May 22nd.

The future is now, you guys.

Sony PS4 Console in Development, AMD Building Graphics Tech?

1150°
134w ago - A few months back Sony stated that PlayStation 4 is expected to arrive with rival next-generation consoles, and today [Register or Login to view links] reports that PS4 is in development with AMD rumored to be building the system's graphics technology.

To quote: "Sony is working on an as-yet-unannounced new gaming console, former AMD employees say, and the processor designer may play a key role in the new product.

AMD's graphics technology is already used in Microsoft's XBox 360 console. However, Sony's PlayStation 3 - introduced in 2006 - relies on graphics technology from Nvidia.

AMD declined to comment on the project. Sony Chief Transformation Officer George Bailey also declined to discuss Sony's new console, or even acknowledge its existence.

However, at AMD's analyst day last month, AMD Chief Financial Officer Thomas Seifert identified gaming as one of several trends that will drive revenue growth at AMD in 2012."

185w ago - Today JoyStiq.com (linked above), [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] have made available some Sony NGP (PSP2) Tech Demos video footage from GDC 2011.

The NGP Demos below include Little Deviants, Uncharted Portable, and augmented reality dinosaurplay, and to quote from CVG:

"He first reintroduced the crowd to an old dinosaur video, which Sony used as a tech demo to launch PSOne over a decade ago.

Having walked to the centre of the room, Horikawa then aimed an NGP towards an A3-sized image of a T-Rex on the floor. The rep then raised the camera of the NGP up towards the ceiling, to reveal a virtual jurassic monster as tall as GDC's Moscone Center.

As he moved the NGP down, it showed the beast's neck and body - drawing gasps and applause from the assembled audience."
