272w ago - Are you an XBox 360 person, or do you believe in the PS3? Can't make up your mind as to which console is better?
Well, we've been trying to keep everyone up to date on the latest in the console wars. But still, sometimes it's not enough.
This video shows a comparison of some of the better exclusive games each console has (or will have soon). That way, you can make an informed decision as to which console is better. Or just use the video to further your argument.
273w ago - Three key devs behind Nintendo's Metroid Prime series have formed a new studio called Armature, under the publishing flag of Electronic Arts.
What does that mean for us gamers, exactly? It means the prime (hah) talents behind Metroid are now free to develop games for non-Nintendo platforms.
The devs heading Armature Studios - Mark Pacini, Todd Keller and Jack Matthews, (who were the former Game Director, Art Director, and Principal Tech Engineer of the Metroid franchise, respectively) - have expressed interest in the PS3 and 360. Says Pacini:
From my stand point, I've never worked on any other console. I've always made games for Nintendo. I'm reinvigorated. I'm really excited about what other opportunities are out there. How can we use Xbox Live? How can we use the power of the PS3?
I think it really opens it up. I'm not saying it was by any means restrictive working for Nintendo. We had this palette to work on, the Wii and the DS, but now we have everything.
Personally I'm looking forward to see what they have in store for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Not that I don't think the Wii is a capable platform, but it lacks the processing power its competition has. I'd like to see what the devs can do with that extra power.
276w ago - Worried that PS3's streaming Vidzone music videos were going to get in the way of your games? SCEE president David Reeves is here to quell the fear.
"People said, 'I wish I could listen to the music, and see it as well,'" Reeves told us, speaking at Games Convention in Leipzig last week.
"Because you can listen to it - you don't have to see the music video - and play your game at the same time. And that to them was very important."
The Vidzone service - which allows streaming of music videos to all PS3 users in Europe for free - is to launch early next year. A download service for similar content is scheduled to hit towards the end of 2009.
