225w ago - Today GameSpy has some preliminary details and concept art (courtesy of JeuxFrance.com) available on the upcoming PS3 exclusive title Kurayami by Suda 51, as follows:
Suda 51 harnesses the power of PS3 for a bizarre action/adventure inspired the work of existentialist writer Franz Kafka.
In an unusual town full of odd locals, your stranded characters must explore the town and its castle to find a way out, using only his carried torch to light his way and to fend off the unexpected and unexplainable horrors that await.
Thanks to the power techniques of PlayStation 3, Suda Goichi intends to stress the graphic style (textures, drawings of the characters, decorations, etc.) of Kurayami so that the player can truly sense the darkness, as the concept of the fear will play a very important part in the play.
Additionally, advanced new lighting and graphic techniques are used to impress upon you the feeling of fear and loneliness (the tite "Kurayami" means "Darkness" in Japanese) as you venture through to the end of your quest.
233w ago - LittleBigPlanet developers Media Molecule are working on a new PS3 title, at least according to a job posting from earlier this month.
According to the listing, they are seeking a Gameplay Programmer for "ground-breaking, AAA, PS3 title for Sony Computer Entertainment" as part of an expansion of Media Molecule Ltd.
To quote: It was thought that the developers were working only on LittleBigPlanet PSP, as the studio is fairly small and employs only a handful of people. This news is good news for PS3 owners, and certain requirements in the listing suggest that this game will be LittleBigPlanet 2.
The listing asks for "experience writing and maintaining physics code" and requires the prospective employee to have "shipped a console game with an online component."
This is obviously all speculation, but don't be too shocked when the game announced is LittleBigPlanet 2 (or LittleBigUniverse?)

238w ago - Update: Activision has officially crossed off at least one game from the possible projects Radical is bringing to the Wii.
"I can confirm that we have no plans to bring Prototype to the Wii," an Activision representative told GameSpot.
Radical Entertainment is a developer that operates on both sides of the Entertainment Software Rating Board's spectrum. On the one hand, the Canadian studio has crafted such family-friendly titles as Crash of the Titans. On the other hand, Radical's latest game, the open-world actioner Prototype, sees players cutting a swath of destruction through New York City.
That being said, new job listings on Activision's Web site indicate that Radical Entertainment may be considering bringing its hyperviolent action game Prototype to Nintendo's family-friendly console. First, the developer is currently seeking a senior Wii programmer to handle systems and rendering for a Wii port of an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game.
"Work with other rendering and systems programmers, designers, and artists to take game features from concept to execution for a port of a 360/PS3 game to the Wii," reads the job description for the senior Wii programmer position at Radical....
