Easton: Conviction's New Visual Direction is Simply Much Better

50°
322w ago - Splinter Cell: Conviction community development manager, Chris Easton, has told Videogaming247 today that not only is work on the game well under way, but that the "visual direction is simply much better" than what we've seen so far.

"Splinter Cell Conviction is certainly not canned, despite what the Internet rumour mill says, and won't look significantly different to what you've seen before," he said.

"The gameplay's evolved a lot but the visual direction is simply much better than what you've seen."

Easton added: "The gameplay has evolved from what we showed at Ubidays last year and when you see it again it'll be worth the wait."

Colored us intrigued. No date as yet.
 

Activision CEO Expects at least 8 Years out of the PS3

50°
323w ago - During the Activision Blizzard Analyst Day, CEO Robert Kotick expressed his expectations that the PS3 will last at least eight years.

Since Activision Blizzard is now "largest payer of royalties to the first-parties of any third-party company," the CEO believes the company is "starting to influence hardware design."

When is that going to happen, you ask? "I think there's a long life ahead of us, we're in year eight of PlayStation 2 and when you look at PlayStation 3 technically we're likely to see at least eight years' success."

We've heard enough from Sony executives who chant the PS3's expected 10 year life-cycle like a mantra, so it is refreshing to hear someone from outside the company who has similar confidence in our favorite console.
 

Chris Easton: Prince of Persia Co-Op now a Possibility

50°
337w ago - Speaking to videogaming247, Chris Easton - Prince of Persia's community development manager - has said that co-operative play in the upcoming action reboot may be explored.

An earlier statement, given by producer Ben Mattes at the recent Ubidays event, said that there would no co-op in the game at all.

"There are no plans for co-op as of now, but we may explore the possibility," Easton told us.

Co-op seemed as natural feature of the game, given that play centres on the Prince and constant sidekick Elika, and it would seem that hope is not yet lost, despite Mattes' comments.
 

New cable cut compounds net woes

355w ago - A submarine cable in the Middle East has been snapped, adding to global net problems caused by breaks in two lines under the Mediterranean on Wednesday.

The Falcon cable, owned by a firm which operates another damaged cable, led to a "critical" telecom breakdown, according to one local official.

The cause of the latest break has not been confirmed but a repair ship has been deployed, said owner Flag Telecom.

The earlier break disrupted service in Egypt, the Middle East and India.

"The situation is critical for us in terms of congestion," Omar Sultan, chief executive of Dubai's ISP DU, told The Associated Press, following the most recent break.

Wednesday's incident caused disruption to 70% of the nationwide internet network in Egypt on Wednesday, while India suffered up to 60% disruption.

Flag Telecom said a repair ship was expected to arrive at the site of the first break - 8.3km from Alexandria in Egypt - on 5 February, with repair work expected to take a week.

A repair ship deployed to the second break - 56km from Dubai - was expected to arrive at the site in the "next few days", the firm said.
