David Jaffe talks about being 'in bed' with Sony

50°
356w ago - David Jaffe, the mind behind the God of War and Twisted Metal franchise, may not work for Sony any more - but that doesn't mean he's no longer a PS Fanboy. His new games studio, Eat Sleep Play, is working on a PS2 version of Twisted Metal Head-On and will work on three exclusive games for Sony.

In a revealing Q&A with GameDaily, the outspoken game designer said, "I love the PlayStation 3. I love the PSP. I'm a big Sony fan. That doesn't mean that I'm not a 360 fan; I'm a Wii fan, and I love all the systems, but there's something about the PS3. I said it before when I was an employee and I'll say it again now, there's something just really elegant about playing games on that system."

The years of working with Sony has crafted a tight-knit relationship that Jaffe would love to continue. "So right now, we're looking to be in bed with Sony as long as they'll have us. Hopefully we'll make them happy. We'll make Sony proud, they'll like what we do, and they'll have us back time after time ... I mean the people there, they are like a family, I've worked with them for fourteen years; I have no desire to not work with them."

How to download Beats with a PS3 (not a PC)

50°
356w ago - Okay, so maybe you don't have a Windows PC that is capable of running the PlayStation Network downloader. That's okay. You may have a Mac, or you might be running Linux -- or you're just too darn afraid to install a new program on your computer. Whatever the reason, there is an alternative... provided you have a PS3.

1. Visit the PLAYSTATION Store (http://store.playstation.com/)on any computer. Complete purchase of Beats, but do not download it.
2. Log in to your PS3 using the same PSN account as the one used to purchase Beats.
3. Go to PLAYSTATION Network on the XMB. Click on Account Management.
4. Click on Transaction History.
5. Then, click on Download List. You will see Beats on this list.
6. Download to your PS3. Connect your PSP via USB and install your new favorite PSP game.

Hope this helps the few of you that simply cannot access the Store on your computer. If you're without a PS3 and a Windows PC, you're in tough luck for now. Why not just buy the game at a friend's house?
 

Eye of Marvel; PlayStation Eye playing cards on the way?

50°
356w ago - We've heard that Marvel will be releasing cards to use with the Eye of Judgement (or Eye of Judgment if you're American/Sony) next year to further expand the groundbreaking title's gameplay.

The new cards will feature all your Marvel favourites and will make use of the existing Eye of Judgement playing mat. Equally, the game could come out as a seperate Blu-ray disk or PS Store download but 'require The Eye of Judgment' in order to play it.

The way you play the game itself will change under the Marvel card set and most likely be supported by a future game update release. Assuming this is all true it would certainly make the Eye of Judgement less of a niche title and more of a mainstream winner, so we have our fingers crossed.

As soon as we get our hands on an official press release, this story remains in the rumor pot. If it were to happen, we expect it will go ahead around March next year.
 

PlayStation Firmware Interview: Faster Updates, Fewer For 2008

50°
356w ago - The interview was with Eric Lempel, director of network operations for Sony Computer Entertainment America, who I spoke with last week. Lempel is not just responsible for the PSP PC store. He's also behind any of the firmware upgrades SCEA issues for the PS3 and PSP.

Lempel and I mostly talked about the store during our interview, but late in our chat the topic of firmware came up. Why have there been so many firmware upgrades this year? What is Sony's current firmware strategy? And what kind of features are coming?

No, he did not say when customizable XMB will be implemented. But he was open nonetheless and suggests a promising, more user-friendly future is in the works. Here's an excerpt from our conversation, the rest of which follows below:

Multiplayer: There've been a lot [of PlayStation 3 firmware upgrades] and it's certainly improved the machine. I can't say that I love every time I turn my system on – well not every time I turn my system on – but when I turned my system on last night to check something needed an upgrade already. I just got 2.0.

Lempel: Right. Right. We're trying to certainly cut down on the amount of times we do it. But on occasion when we've got these good features ready to go, let's give them out to the consumers. Let's get them...
 

The return of the Dreamcast: Why it could work

50°
356w ago - If you've been anywhere near the internet over the last couple of days you'll no doubt have come into contact with a screamingly excited Dreamcast fan or two.

They've been nearing ignition temperature on the forums for the last twenty-four hours due to some rumours that a follow-up to the vastly loved but prematurely killed console may be on the way. Rumors that came about due to Sega re-registering the DC trademark, only with a description containing a few key changes to the original format.

Of course, the differences may very well be a simple result of Sega wanting to protect the Dreamcast name for future use of its games on other formats such as XBLA. And after contacting Sega to enquire about the matter, we were given a resounding "Falsehood!" in response.

But still, we can't help wondering. Would a second Dreamcast prevail after the financial whupping Sega took with the first one? What reasons are there to think that it would be a good idea, and how would the console have to work? It may just be the nostalgic fanboy in us, but as we went on, we found ourselves feeling more and more positive about it, Here are our conclusions.
