EA Support Confirms No Game Bans Resulting from Forum Bans

50°
312w ago - Recently it was reported that if you were banned from the EA Forums you were also going to be banned from playing their games online.

Today EA Apoc has confirmed this initial statement was inaccurate and a mistake, to quote:

Hey everyone,

If you didn't notice, your C&C Community Manager, me, had a bit of a run-in with the video game blogging media today in reference to a direct quote I made on our forums here a few days ago in regards to how we handle bans and suspensions on the forums and in-game.

You all know how we are greatly trying to protect and serve you from those who wish to disrupt our C&C community by breaking ToS on our forums or in-game, and I know everyone appreciates when we take action on those that are the worst.

That said, the previous statement I made recently (that's being quoted on the blogs) was inaccurate and a mistake on my part. I had a misunderstanding with regards to our new upcoming forums and website and never meant to infer that if we ban or suspend you on the forums, you would be banned in-game as well. This is not correct, my mistake, my bad.

If we suspend or ban you from the forums, that does not affect your...
 

Final Fantasy XIII Gameplay Footage Coming Before Year's End

50°
312w ago - According to PSX Extreme (linked above), Nomura has told a publication that we will see a battle scene in FFXIII before the end of the year. He also touched upon the benefits of the Blu-ray format for the game.

To quote: However, according to Final Fantasy XIII-net, (details translated by a NeoGAF forum member), the latest information tells us we will see gameplay footage for FFXIII before 2008 is out.

Square-Enix's Tetsuya Nomura spoke about the game in a Gemaga interview, and he says we will "see a battle scene in FFXIII before the end of the year." He also mentions the benefits of Blu-Ray for their ambitious RPG, and furthermore, they should soon release information on the game's expected-to-be-stellar voiceover cast.

For many, this game remains the most anticipated title of the new generation, and despite the delays, it remains high on everyone's priority list. It is coming to the Xbox 360 as well - PS3 owners still haven't recovered from the sting of that announcement - but Final Fantasy Versus XIII remains a PS3 exclusive, and the PSP will get Final Fantasy Agito XIII.

Nomura touched on that in the interview, by the way, and says the current battle interface for the handheld title is only "temporary."
 

Rumor: First Look at Sony's New Break-Apart Game Controller

250°
312w ago - A patent application filed on October 23rd that surfaced at NeoGAF reveals that talk of Sony creating a break-apart controller that surfaced back in July of this year might not have been as far-fetched as was originally thought.

The patent is for a method by which a system could track the movement of one or more controllers, with video tracking the position of the controllers and ultrasonic frequencies used to determine their distance from the console.

What this means is that two different controllers would submit data to a video input device like the PlayStation Eye, with the Eye's microphone picking up on both the visual location and aural distance to track motion.

To quote: Through images included in a patent application, Sony has provided us with the first look at what they could be planning for their much rumoured break-apart control that keeps getting mentioned every few months.

It looks like the PS-Eye is involved somehow, and removable...

To Video Game Developers: Enough with the Patches Already

200°
312w ago - Gamertell has posted an opinion piece regarding the annoyance of paying full price for a game that ships with mistakes that have to be patched.

From the article: "Most recently, games such as LittleBigPlanet, SOCOM Confrontation, Fable 2, and Castle Crashers have been victims of a crucial gameplay element being either broken or excluded from launch.

The good thing about technology and consoles in this generation is the ability of adding or fixing content through the use of a simple patch.

However, just because developers have this ability doesn't mean they should abuse it."
