Report: Capcom is Working on More PS3 Than XBox 360 Games

250°
277w ago - In a follow-up to Capcom's latest fiscal reports, they've released a chart showing how many games they've released last year as well as how many they'll be releasing this year and next.

The numbers predict that they'll be releasing fifteen PlayStation 3 games this year and twelve Xbox 360 games this year. Following up in 2010, Capcom will be releasing thirteen PlayStation 3 games and twelve Xbox 360 games.

This is odd, considering Capcom is a multiplatform developer. What could these extra PlayStation 3 games be?

Perhaps one of them is of the two new titles to be announced at E3 2009? Mega Man Legends 3, maybe (hopefully)?

We'll have to wait and see... feel free to speculate below.

GDC '09: XBox 360 Gets Little, PS3 Gets MGS & Ratchet Games

50°
283w ago - The Game Developers Conference is winding down and all has not been lost as several new games have been announced. The conference for the most part was made up of sessions where developers shared new insight into best practices into game development.

Surprisingly Microsoft's camp stayed fairly quiet, while Sony's side was making a bit of ruckus with a tease of a Metal Gear game from Kojima and a new Ratchet & Clank announcement.

Hideo Kojima, the genius behind the Metal Gear games was the keynote speaker at the GDC. Kojima was presented with the lifetime award from GDC, which is the prestigious award honoring those who have made significant contributions to the game industry. Let's face it, not too many individuals can actually take credit for creating a genre.

Kojima wanted to share his 20 some plus years of experience in the game industry by describing his journey as a game developer. He also shared his development methodology as well as shed some light on future ideas. The keynote speech ended with a stunning statement - Mission: The Next MGS.

Next to the caption there was a small picture of Raiden. As I speculated yesterday, this could mean that Kojima may make a new iteration or spin-off with Raiden as the main character.

Another new game that was...
 

Video: PS3 40GB Service Mode Console Running PS2 Games

292w ago - Today D3M0N2009 shared a video from earlier this month courtesy of sonyk0 via YouTube.

The video from DemonHades demonstrates that PS3 40GB Service Mode consoles can actually play PS2 games, but the feature isn't unlocked for the retail counterparts to date.

As most suspect, Sony has been working on a PS2 software emulator for quite some time (since Firmware 2.5x), so the question is really when and how they will introduce it publically.. perhaps via PSN Store PS2 title updates, or just include it in a Firmware update, etc.

Those interested can check out the video below, enjoy!




 

PS2 Games on PS Store via PS3 Firmware Compatibility Update?

300°
299w ago - For the time being this is simply a rumor, however, French site JV247.com (linked above) is reporting that a game publisher told them Sony was planning to add PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility in a recent PlayStation 3 Firmware Update... but pulled it at the last minute.

They continue to mention that it may be added in a future update, and that we may see PlayStation 2 games on the PlayStation Store.

Adding fuel to the rumor is news that the original Medal of Honor and the ESRB-rated PlayStation 2 game "Rayman 2: Revolution" are slated for the PlayStation 3, which usually means they're going to pop up on the PlayStation Store at some point in the future.

As always, more details to come as they are available!
