FFXIII and Versus are Video-Only for Tokyo Game Show 2008

200°
307w ago - Square Enix has posted their list of titles they'll be dishing out at the Tokyo Game Show, indicating which are playable, and which will video-only at the October event.

Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and Final Fantasy Agito XIII are showing up as video only.

Hopefully they'll be on the outside of the usual Closed Mega Theatre, and be more than just trailers.

At least a video walk-through of gameplay is something to hope for.
 

SCE's MacDonald: Video Game Courses are a Waste of Time

308w ago - The UK's daily mail is relighting the fire once again with a report that computer game degrees are useless, with employers arguing that they do not equip students with the basic maths, art and animation skills needed for a career in the business.

Jamie MacDonald, the vice-president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe, said: 'I can't remember the last time I employed someone from them.'

To quote: But Skillset, the body that represents the 'creative media' industry, has only approved four courses as fully meeting employers' needs.

Jamie MacDonald, the vice-president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe, said: 'I can't remember the last time I employed someone from them.'

Meanwhile Britain, which gave the world Lara Croft, the heroine of Tomb Raider, is losing its hold on the global games market, worth an estimated £18billion a year. More than 200 British firms

are backing 'Games Up?' - a campaign to highlight threats to the UK industry, such as a shortage of suitable graduates.

Video: A Peek At PS3 TEST Firmware 2.40!

50°
320w ago - The retail counterpart is rumored to be released during mid to late June, however, recently we had a chance to check out PS3 Debug/TEST Firmware v2.40 (116 MB - 122,268,311 bytes).

Below is a video of it in action, displaying some of the new features. As expected, we can confirm from 2.40 onwards, the system software can be called any time during the gameplay. It appears the in-game XMB does not work while playing PS2 titles, probably the same with PS1 titles as well although we didn't have a PS1 game handy to try.

The video is slightly better quality than the previous PS3 TEST SD Launcher 1.00 Video as video capture was used this time instead of our old camera... as there is no need to view the TEST PS3 in the video this round.

Anyway, more soon... enjoy the video!
