276w ago - A features list for the upcoming [Register or Login to view links] denotes that it will have in-game voice and video chat.

At the moment this is game-specific, but speculation is further mounting that in-game video chat might well become a standard feature for all PS3 titles.

To quote: Yesterday we posted a story about a Zen Pinball demo coming out on Thursday, well an avid reader (Joni-Ice) spotted something that everyone missed on the main website for the game.

The below screenshot is from the main website of Zen Pinball under the "Game Features" tab. We first got wind of the rumor from the HipHopGamerShow, and now it seems like it will eventually become a reality. I think it's time people start taking the Hip Hop Gamer a little more seriously.
 

EA CEO Hints That Mass Effect 2 Will Be a Multi-platform Title

50°
290w ago - In talking about big titles for EA's next fiscal year, CEO John Riccitiello dropped hints about the future of the epic space-themed RPG franchise Mass Effect.

"[In Q4], BioWare will release Mass Effect 2 on multiple platforms," he said during a Tuesday earnings call.

The original 2007 Mass Effect was initially an Xbox 360 exclusive published by Microsoft Game Studios. EA's acquisition of BioWare opened up rumors that the franchise could go multiplatform.

Mass Effect later appeared on PC.

Riccitiello did not specifically mention the PS3 in his statement, but the nature of EA as a multiplatform third-party publisher would suggest that "multiple platforms" would include Sony's machine in the equation.

Multiple calls into EA and BioWare were unanswered as of press time.

Sony Hints at Future Third-Party Downgrades for XBox 360

200°
303w ago - Speaking in a recent interview, Sony Computer Entertainment UK managing director Ray Maguire has suggested that future multi-platform titles from third-parties will be led on PS3 and will have to be downgraded for systems with weaker processors.

Discussing the topic of third-party publisher support on the PS3, Maguire said: "I think we now have an install base which is big enough for any third party to want to develop for.

Now the decision making part of development is which do you lead your development on? Is it easier to lead with the most powerful, both in terms of AI and graphics, i.e. PS3 and then just remove part of the functionality for the processors that aren't quite as strong? I would imagine that's very much part of the thought process now from a studio development point of view."

We're already seeing multi-format titles being lead on PS3, including the great looking Mirror's Edge from DICE, but judged on the released demo the game still looks marginally sharper on Xbox 360.

Should all developers be looking first to PS3? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
