238w ago - Audi is obviously looking forward to being in the coming Gran Turismo 5.
After all, the Quattro company has created a Web site to promote its car on the Nürburgring in real life and in the game, and it interviewed GT5 mastermind Kazunori Yamauchi about what fans can expect.
To quote: Yamauchi-san revealed that the game is going to offer not only more vehicles, more online features, and increased detail, but it will also include night racing, damage rendering (previously confirmed), and weather changes.
If you watch the Audi R8 Meets Gran Turismo 5 video, one of the game developers even talks of one day providing weather reports for an entire 24-hour race, and you can read the interview with Yamauchi-san by clicking on a PDF link here. The graphical and gameplay additions are surely welcome and long overdue, and could return GT5 to the head of the racing sim pack - whenever it finally gets here...
238w ago - The CEO, Andrew Mclennan, of UK based Metaforic has lifted the lid slightly on a new method of protection for Nintendo DS games.
He noted that essentially the new protection will mean that each game is its own security system, and will take a very long time to hack.
The overall aim of the new protection is to make hacking a manual job and limit the chances of automating the hacking process.
To quote: Mclennan didn't claim that Metaforic's anti-piracy tech is 100 percent hack-proof, and acknowledged that eventually, hackers with enough brains, time and motivation eventually hack many forms of software security. But he hopes to make the hacking process as long and annoying as possible.
"What we're really trying to do is make hackers take on a long, slow, manual job," he said. By denying the hacker a way to automate the hacking process, this extends the amount of time that software products can sell legitimately, free of piracy.
"We add so much security to it that it will take a very long time to hack," he claimed.
Killzone VIP Dubbedinenglish stated "I asked the Mutha in another thread he replied a no comment... So we'll have to wait and see."
Killzone VIP Ziggypanda stated "I'm pretty sure that Seb said GG won't be attending E3 this year."
It would be impossible if Guerrilla worked on another IP while Killzone 2 is still the center of attention. If anything, we believe some new downloadable content make surface sometime during summer 2009.
