Video: Eight Minutes of WET Gameplay for PlayStation 3

50°
321w ago - While the publishing fate of WET for PlayStation 3 (and Xbox 360) remains in limbo, developer A2M from Montreal is still proceeding with their hot gun-totting action game WET.

The game tells the story of Rubi, an acrobatic, sword-wielding gun-for-hire who agrees to help a wealthy man find and bring back his wayward son. Soon enough all hell breaks loose and the tables are turned, as the man who hired her isn't who he appeared to be. Now Rubi's on the run, needing to find the man who left her for dead and leaving a massive body count in her wake.

A2M Senior Artistic Technical Director, David Lightbown, presented an exclusive 8 minute video of WET gameplay at MIGS 2008 and NextGen Player was given special permission to record the clip.

Note: The video below contains content that is mature (violence). Viewer discretion is advised.





After watching the video I think you'll agree with me that Activision may have made a poor choice dropping this game. This game looks hot.
 

Midway has 50 Days to Rack Up US $150 Million or it's Game Over

250°
321w ago - Big trouble. Big big trouble. Midway Games is in hot water now, trying to figure out how they can earn US $150 million in just 50 days.

If they fail, they'll have to declare bankruptcy, and it's game over. After getting sold for for a mere pittance, the publisher remains in such bad shape that they're facing bankruptcy in just a little over two months.

A file from the US Securities and Exchange Commission tells us that Midway is really grimacing in financial pain right now. So far, they've got US $10.3 million in the bank, so that's US $140 million to go.

No word yet on what Midway is planning to do with the situation. Call it quits or fight to the death? Or by some miracle actually make that deadline? The health bar is running low, and the economy is itching to deliver its fatality.

Check the source link above if you want to read up on the SEC file, to the lay man, good luck trying to understand that.

PS2 Games on PS Store via PS3 Firmware Compatibility Update?

300°
321w ago - For the time being this is simply a rumor, however, French site JV247.com (linked above) is reporting that a game publisher told them Sony was planning to add PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility in a recent PlayStation 3 Firmware Update... but pulled it at the last minute.

They continue to mention that it may be added in a future update, and that we may see PlayStation 2 games on the PlayStation Store.

Adding fuel to the rumor is news that the original Medal of Honor and the ESRB-rated PlayStation 2 game "Rayman 2: Revolution" are slated for the PlayStation 3, which usually means they're going to pop up on the PlayStation Store at some point in the future.

As always, more details to come as they are available!
 

Atari Speaks on Second-Hand Video Game Sales and the Industry

200°
322w ago - Various video game publishers have spoke out recently to either condone or criticize second-hand video game sales for eating into their profits.

Atari president Phil Harrison isn't worried though, as he says their future strategy is to make games that people will want to keep hold of stating: "it's no coincidence that the most valuable games, the one's that have the most lifetime as a game experience, are the one's that don't get resold, that don't get traded.

The games that have the embedded community, the embedded commerce, the extended, expandable experiences, are the one's that you would never want to trade, the one's you want to keep hold of. And that's perfectly in line with our future strategy so we're not that concerned about it," he said.

To quote: Speaking at the Atari Live event in London yesterday, the publisher said that to avoid games being sold on by consumers, the industry needs to offer more online features, whether adding extra content, social functions or financial services.

"Second hand game sales represent consumer choice and desire," said David Gardner, CEO of Atari.

"Obviously, it has economically been extremely painful for the...
