Apple sued for not supporting WMA

50°
352w ago - Its an Apple Product produced by Apple which competes with Windows which means they can put support for any files if they want.

The new year is here as well as the lawsuits for big named companies. A person who shall remained unnamed because I dont want her to gain recognition from anyone has sued Apple for not allowing iPods to support the WMA format.

The person alledges that Apple is involved in "Unfair Practices" by disableling the WMA feature on their Apple Products. It is an Apple product so basically Apple can support the format they want. Just like a Windows PC will not work with Apple OS. It's common sense and it seems that this person doesnt seem to have it.

If I were the judge I would throw the Mallet at the person's head and have them locked up on the count of Stupidity and would not allow them to leave until they show some common sense.
 

Why has multiformat games development become so problematic?

50°
352w ago - With release dates slipping as titles need 'further development time' and louder groans from coders regarding the trials of contemporary CPUs, we look at how the increasingly contradictory nature of development - with studios asked to make one game for a variety of different machines - has impacted the industry...

Looking at the current state of the game market, it's clear that the development sector is having a serious problem with multiplatform development.

Staggered releases have become more common: it's not unusual to see a PS3 version of a title ship a week or two after its 360 counterpart. But it can be even more severe than that - some titles are appearing on some formats months after they've appeared on another, with slippage as developers continually shift attentions between platforms impacting production schedules.

In addition, more and more developers are starting to speak out on the difficulties of being multiplatform developers in this latest generation - usually at the same time as they boast the large amount of work they've done on their own internal development frameworks to alleviate the situation.

There's even a feeling amongst some in the industry that simultaneous multiplatform development isn't possible with a single team any more.
 

5 Reasons Why Metal Gear Solid 4 is Staying PS3 Exclusive

200°
352w ago - I'm not a Playstation fanboy. I own neither a 360 nor a PS3. My reasoning is based purely on what I've gathered from sources and articles across the web. The people who ultimately decide if MGS4 becomes multi-platform are business minded and so I've considered this situation from a profit standpoint. Hit the jump to read my 5 reasons why MGS4 will never see the Xbox 360 platform.

1) Metal Gear and the Playstation go together like Salt and Pepper
A long time ago Kojima told Official Xbox Magazine that Metal Gear is "made for the Playstation Platform" The only Metal Gear title released on the Xbox was Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, which was also released on the PS2 and PC. Some complain that Substance was sub-par on the Xbox as it suffered from lag and clumsy controls. Metal Gear Solid 4 makes use of the PS3's sixaxis. Right now motion controls on the Xbox 360 are nothing more than rumors. Though Kojima has said that the 360 can run MGS4, certain distinctions between the two platforms make the port difficult if not unreasonable and most definitely costly.

2) MGS4 Will Reach Sales Goals
One of the points used to justify a 360 version of MGS4 is the fact that MGS4 must sell an incredible number of copies in a very short time to reconcile it's massive development budget. Some argue that since PS3...

Rod Nakamoto, senior vice president of product development, Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment: "The trailer will give gamers and fans a glimpse at what they can expect to find in Stargate Worlds. It's a mix of old and new elements that hint at the direction we are taking the franchise."

Stargate Worlds studio head Dan Elggren: "Stargate Worlds is about instant adventure in an epic, evolving universe. That's what fans and gamers are going to see in this trailer."

Our fans will jump at the chance to have their likeness incorporated in the MMORPG and become a part of Stargate history."
