ID: Programmers will tell you the PS3 is a pain to work with

50°
328w ago - Tim Willits and Todd Hollensead of ID recently spoke to GameInformer regarding their latest focus - RAGE. Hollensead has revealed that the first thing his PS3 programmers will say is that essentially it is a pain to work with.

However, he revealed that while there are challenges to it, it's certainly "not as hairy" as people originally said it was.

To quote from the Interview:

Q: Have you found developers for the PS3?

Hollensead: I think the programmers will tell you first that it's a pain in the ass to work with. They have said that it's a pain in the ass to work with, but at the same time, that's our job–making games–and the strategy that we wanted was to have a game that worked on all the platforms.

John, to his credit, came up with a technology solution that allowed us to do something unique, which is to have one source base for the media, not source for programming source, art source. Once you solve that problem, then the dominos start to tumble about multiplatform and crossplatform simultaneous development.

Yeah, the PS3 is kind of the one that the programmers cherish the least about going, "OK, there's a problem with the PS3, let's go find this." But at the same time, one of the things that we find is that when...
 

PAIN Patch Adds Trophies and Game Content, if you Pay for it!

50°
328w ago - The long-awaited PAIN trophy patch is now available to download. Simply load up the game and you will be prompted to download the 325MB patch. Don't forget, PAIN's trophies have been retooled, to make them a bit easier than originally intended. The patch also adds a bunch of content to the game -- but only if you pay for it.

Three new characters are available to purchase, along with the new "Abusement Park" (though none of these are available on any region's PSN Store as of yet). There are also new game modes which, we assume, come with the Amusement Park expansion.

There is one free addition to the feature roster, however. Each week a new mini-level will be made available. Each of these "PAINlabs" will be an experimental concept that Idol Minds are playing with and are releasing for you, the players, to test out.

An interesting idea -- and best of all? It's free. Though, having said that, we doubt anyone would pay any money for these, judging from the first one.

Disgruntled Ex-GameStop Employee Takes it to YouTube

300°
329w ago - Below is a video of YouTube rants from a former GameStop employee known only as 'WhistleBlowerZero', who has made a 9 part (!) series in the style of Zero Punctuation to explain exactly how bad GameStop is to employees and customers alike.

Many of the tidbits within will hardly be a surprise to anyone who's ever set foot in one of their stores and/or had the misfortune of working retail, but the series seems to be targeted more at the casual consumer and perhaps people who think working at GameStop sounds like a great job.

Viva la revoluciĆ³n?

329w ago - It's official, I'm finally getting my knees deep in an MMO for once. Usually I let Major handle these dirty tasks so that I myself don't get sucked in, but when I heard of free beta keys at 5:00 AM in the morning I couldn't resist but to grab one myself.

At least it their are enough keys by then. We ourselves have one extra key we will be giving out if all else fails for your success of becoming a destined WAR player.
