iD Software Confident RAGE Will Be 60fps on All Platforms

50°
268w ago - In the latest [Register or Login to view links] magazine, John Carmack of iD Software states that the Xbox 360 version of RAGE just about matches the 60fps framerate of the PC version, while the PS3 only runs the game at around 20-30fps at this stage in development.

To quote: "The 360 version matches the PC's 60 fps," Carmack told Edge. "But the textures on many surfaces currently flick visibly between resolutions as you move toward and away from them, while the PS3's framrate runs at just 20-30fps.

"The PS3 lags a little bit behind in terms of getting the performance out of it. The rasteriser is just a little bit slower - no two ways about that.

"The RSX is slower than what we have in the 360. The CPU is about the same, but the 360 makes it easier to split things off, and that's what a lot of the work has been, splitting it all into jobs on the PS3."

However, iD Software still intends to release all three versions at 60fps and they're confident they can achieve this:

"Everything is designed as a 60 hertz game. We expect this to be 60 hertz on every supported platform," Carmack added.

"The work remaining is getting it locked so there's never a dropped frame or a tear, but we're confident that...
 

Kaos FPS Homefront Announced, Set in North Korea-occupied US

50°
278w ago - Kaos Studios just announced Homefront, an FPS set in an America occupied by North Korea.

The game promises a story-driven single-player game as well as multiplayer, and will release for PC, PS3 and 360.
No release date has been given.

"Homefront isn't about going to war on the other side of the world or battling aliens from another planet; it's about fighting foreign invaders in your own backyard and defending your right to live," said Kaos Studios design boss David Votypka.

"Homefront combines the unsettling notion of an occupied America with interactive, player-driven narratives to create a deeply engaging single and multiplayer experience."

EA is Working on the Best FPS Ever, New Medal of Honor Update?

100°
281w ago - In late 2007, Electronic Arts Los Angeles took a crack at returning its Command & Conquer franchise to the first-person shooter genre with Tiberium.

Ultimately, however, the project proved to be a doomed venture, with EA suspending work on the game less thab a year later because it was "not on track to meet the high-quality standards set by the team and by the EA Games Label," according to a company representative.

Now, it appears as if EALA isn't going to let one canceled game stand in the way of its FPS ambitions. In a new job posting for an art director, the developer revealed that it is at work on "a brand new first-person shooter project in the very beginning stages of development."

The job requisition gave no indication as to which themes would be incorporated into the project, saying only that it will be "the best project we've ever worked on."

EALA is perhaps best known for its World War II-themed Medal of Honor shooters, a franchise that has been dormant since 2007's Medal of Honor: Airborne and Medal of Honor Heroes 2. Of note, in an interview in August 2008, EA Games president Frank Gibeau confirmed that the publisher had future plans for the franchise, saying, "You'll hear more about Medal of Honor in the future. I can guarantee you that."

Game Informer Article Confirms M.A.G. as FPS Only PS3 Title

200°
284w ago - According to Extric from the official PlayStation boards (linked above) M.A.G. is confirmed as a FPS only PS3 title.

A scan of the article detailing this from Game Informer magazine is available below, and to quote:

Okay, I just got done reading the MAG article in the latest Game Informer and here is the information on the games camera view:

The biggest change SOCOM fans will notice in MAG is the gameplay perspective; Zipper abandoned the third-person perspective in favor of a first-person experience.

"We looked at the number of different camera options for the game, and settled on FPS primarily because of the scale of MAG," Bodewin remarks. "Some of our previous games were third-person, and it was well suited to [managing] teammates and AI quadrates as well.

But for a game of this size we really wanted to make it the most immersive and the most intense large-scale game that we could. There's really no better way to do that than to sink you right into the action and look at things through a first-person perspective."

Here is a picture of the paragraph where I got the information from. Best one I could get because the flash kept getting in the way...
 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to Exceed All FPS Titles This Year?

100°
289w ago - Activision is the biggest publisher in the industry topping even gaming giant EA since there merge with Blizzard; creators of the magnificent World of Warcraft.

While I'm sure there are millions of gamers who know about World of Warcraft, they also were behind the excellent Diablo & Starcraft which have many gamers still rattling their names off here and there. Activision was behind Call of Duty, Guitar Hero (first two) & Quake.

Activision has a few games up its sleeves to reveal but the most anticipated game in everyone's mind is Call of Duty 6.

At the NY Comicon inside sources from Activision were asked if Call Duty 6 would top Killzone 2 this year. Their answer similar to Sony's arrogance was a big and bold "YES" and then some.

We went on to ask for more details for such as the graphical power of the game as well as if the game play had changed at all since COD4 but all that was said was that the graphics will blow you away and the game play is deeper than any other COD you've ever experienced!

They also went on to say that the multiplayer is looking to take new heights never before seen in the FPS genre (insult maybe?). The one hint that we received was how the point system will work with kills.

Considering what we've experienced with...
