50°
301w ago - To follow up on the previous Killzone 2 v1.24 patch details and their trailer from earlier today, Guerrilla Games Lead Online Game Designer Eric Boltjes shared the following update:

In a continuing effort to provide support for Killzone 2 Online, and to show you day-1 fans of Killzone that we mean business, we are very happy to announce the upcoming 1.24 patch.

This patch is the biggest one yet, and addresses a large number of reported issues, exploits and bugs - but it also adds new functionality to the game for you to enjoy!

I would like to highlight the fact that we are adding 3 new ranks to the game, reached at 5000, 10000 and 100000 points respectively. These ranks do not give any rewards but it allows the real hardcore players to show off their hard work to everyone in-game!

Other highlights include a new 17-24 player search game filter, enlarged HUD radar distance and a much requested "Join Clan Member" tab in the join game screen. The patch also allows you to play against the next batch of contenders: Japan, who will be able to buy their copies of Killzone...

Team Bondi Seeking More Talent for L.A. Noire Production

50°
302w ago - Every time we see the title "L.A. Noire" in the news, we always tense up in anticipation of bad news. After all, this is a project that seems to have struggled through a lengthy development process, and there was even talk of a cancellation at some point.

But as Joystiq pointed out, the latest update should be considered encouraging. Team Bondi (also responsible for The Getaway) is [Register or Login to view links] for plenty of talented individuals to join the team, perhaps in an attempt to push through the final stages.

They're looking for everything from animators to artists to coders to designers, so if you think you've got the skills, perhaps you'd like to apply. If not, and you're merely looking for good news concerning L.A. Noire, then you should be somewhat satisfied. Although we'd like to assume that development has reached a critical stage, we still have no official update on the team's progress.

Our last update said the game would be about a year away, and that was last fall; September, to be exact. Therefore, E3 may be the time when Rockstar announces a concrete release date for this long-awaited crime thriller, and if that happens, it'll be big news indeed.

Anyway, we'll let you know if there's any movement on the L.A. Noire front; at this point,...
 

Bilkent Tech to Make DVDs with 1,000 Times More Capacity

300°
302w ago - The Bilkent University Nanotechnology Research Center (NANOTAM) has developed a new technology that enables DVDs to store more than a thousand times as much data as those currently on the market.

Developed by Dr. Ekmel ├-zbay, the head of NANOTAM, and students ├-zg├╝r Attila ├çakmak and Koray Ayd─▒n, the new nano-materials will pave the way for production of the next era of DVDs, which will be able to store thousands of movies on a single disc.

The invention by the Turkish scientists was published in one of the most prestigious physics journals, the Physical Review Letters. Dr. ├-zbay said they focused their studies on concentrating rays on a point that covers as small a space as possible.

"We have developed a new technology that enhances the number of rays passing through a small dot by thousands of times. With this technology more data will be stored on DVDs in a smaller area," he said.

├-zbay said a normal DVD has a maximum capacity of 50 to 100 gigabytes and that they will increase this by at least a thousand times. "We have created a magical material which enables rays to pass through a very small point," the NANOTAM head noted.

The new technology permits a far smaller notch to be etched on the DVD surface with a wider wavelength. It is expected...
