If you're a fan of our massive 256-player first-person shooter, MAG, then today's news should be of great interest to you.

PlayStation Move: Precision Swing in John Daly's ProStroke Golf

50°
228w ago - Today designer Derek Hartin at Gusto Games has outlined the importance of a precision swing in John Daly's ProStroke Golf for PlayStation Move.

To quote: Professional golfers spend most of their lives trying to generate the perfect motion and the biggest challenge at [Register or Login to view links] over the course of developing [Register or Login to view links] has been to translate this key mechanic into something the end user can play with.

That's where PlayStation and the Move motion controller came in. But let's start with a bit of background to the problem.

Video games have always had a problem translating the swing, a fluid, analog motion, into something a gamer can work with. Three-click systems create a disconnect between the player and their avatar; they're never really taking the shot.

In fact, all they're doing is setting up what will happen BEFORE their golfer takes a swing. Using an analog stick bridged a gap, but it's still nothing like actually swinging a club. Golf games have been crying out for a way of letting gamers actually feel like they're swinging a club and PlayStation Move has become that solution.

From booming drives off the tee to delicate approach chips, Move...

228w ago - Today Frima Executive Producer Martin Brouard has shared details on Young Thor for PS3 and PSP Minis which is now available on PSN.

To quote: Last week's launch of Young Thor has been a tremendous occasion for our studio, and finally launching one of the biggest mini titles to date has brought up a lot of warm praise and even some questions from the fans.

In short, I'd love to take this opportunity to tell you how this project came about, and fill you in on our unique approach to minis.

Nearly three years ago, an idea came to us for a project surrounding a fresh take on Norse mythology. We wanted to make something that we'd enjoy as hardcore gamers, but also something for all ages that our families could dive into at the same time.

While we weren't exactly sure where we would decide to take the game, our imaginations ran wild before we got into the actual game design itself. We created our own [Register or Login to view links] for Young Thor that helped us wrap our heads around what we wanted to do. Once finished, we all knew that we still wanted to tell this story in game form, but we wanted to do so in the same vein as an animated short.

At the time,...
 

Sony Adds Cinavia DRM Protection in as Automatic PS3 Download

750°
229w ago - A few months back Sony updated their new Terms of Service to include "automatic updates or upgrades which may change your current operating system, cause a loss of data or content or cause a loss of functionalities or utilities" and with the recent PS3 Firmware 3.41 it appears Sony has added in [Register or Login to view links] as an automatic PS3 download.

For those unaware, Cinavia DRM technology is an audio watermarking technology that takes aim at pirates, and those trying to playback movie downloads via their PlayStation 3 consoles, and is part of the content protection system included in Blu-ray Disc players.

According to the official site, the watermarking works by "comparing the source of the audio to the format in which a movie was released (ie theatrical or commercial disc), and if the watermarked audio source detects a difference, the movie will either be mute (but most likely not play at all)."
