Sony: We're Expanding PlayStation Network Beyond PS3

350°
288w ago - Sony's CEO Howard Stringer has revealed that Sony will be expanding the PlayStation Network to hardware other than the PS3 console.

Stringer noted the expansion is a good idea because the number of PS3's sold puts a limit on the scale of the network possible.

To quote: Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer has spoken on how online services have driven the expansion of the PlayStation business, and has implied that Sony is set to push the PSN service on other devices.

"We will be expanding the PlayStation Network to hardware other than the PS3," he said in an interview with Asian news service [Register or Login to view links]. He said that Sony will be expanding the PSN because the number of PS3 units sold "puts a limit on the scale of the network possible."

"Sony has a vertical structure for each product line, an organizational structure that resists change, so it will take time to achieve this network growth. However, a large number of employees share my opinion on this," he added.

289w ago - In this article we have a look at the Top 5 developers of this generation on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

There are plenty of great developers out there and some that certainly deserve massive credit for the awesome games they bring consumers year in and year out.

Unfortunately though, we have cut the list to five as follows:

5. Guerilla Games:

Guerilla Games is a Sony first party developer. The company is based in Amsterdam and is best known for its Killzone series. As everyone probably knows, Guerilla Games latest game is Killzone 2 for the PlayStation 3. To develop a game of the quality of Killzone 2 is brilliant.

Killzone 2 is without a doubt in the Top 5 best looking games of this generation. With Killzone 2, it wasn't just about creating a great shooting game. It was also about creating a complete online multiplayer experience with fully integrated statistical tracking, leaderboards and clan implementation on Killzone's [Register or Login to view links].

Capcom to Lean on Sony's PS3 for Software Sales

50°
289w ago - The latest [Register or Login to view links] from Capcom revealed that they will be leaning on the PlayStation 3 in this fiscal year.

To quote: The third-party company expects to sell a combined 4.9 million software units with 10 new PlayStation 3 titles plan for the fiscal year of 2009-2010. This is way higher than the previous year in which the eight Capcom games on the PlayStation 3 sold a combined 1.75 million units.

In comparison, Capcom expects the Xbox 360 to sell 4.55 million units of software with 11 new titles during the same period. Despite having more new titles (14) than the other two the Nintendo Wii is only predicted to sell 2.20 million units, which seems a little low since Monster Hunter 3 should be released before March 31, 2010.

Sony also got the upper hand on the competition in the handheld market. Capcom expects to sell 2.45 million units of software on the PSP over the span of eight new titles. Capcom is only planning for the Nintendo DS to sell 2.1 million units despite releasing 29 new titles on it over the same period.
 

No DLC Planned for Dissidia: Final Fantasy for Sony's PSP

50°
289w ago - One particular area PSP games have surprisingly early roots in is downloadable content.

Thanks to the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live, downloadable content has become a well worn term to gamers of today, with such extra content as Fallout 3 story expansions, maps in Halo 3, and added sack boys in LittleBigPlanet.

WipeOut Pure, one of the first PSP games launched, featured a multitude of extra downloadable tracks and racing ships long before the PSP even had a Web browser.

Killzone: Liberation went as far as to add online multiplayer and a whole 20% more story as downloadable content, and free at that. Most PSP games would work with downloadable content, so why not the ever technologically leading edge Square Enix in their first Final Fantasy brawler on PSP?

Much like Street Fighter and Soul Calibur of this generation of consoles, Dissidia: Final Fantasy features well developed online fights between players.

As proven by such mentioned console titles, the fighting genre especially is very well suited for extra downloadable content. Extra characters, new outfits, new stages, extra story, weapons, abilities, the areas in which Square Enix has to choose from to further flesh out Dissidia with downloadable content is huge.

Square Enix isn't a stranger to...
