Videos: Uncharted 2 First Online Reviews for PlayStation 3

300°
258w ago - Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has shared some Uncharted 2 PS3 reviews today on the PlayStation Blog... including IGN and GamesRadar, to quote:

Things are picking up steam for us as we head into the final weeks before Uncharted 2: Among Thieves releases worldwide in October. It's hard to believe that just nine months ago, we announced UNCHARTED 2 with our [Register or Login to view links] at the 2008 SPIKE Video Game Awards.

We took the next few months to slowly tease out more information on our single-player campaign until we dropped the bomb in late April that we were including multiplayer gameplay modes in UNCHARTED 2. Everyone at Naughty Dog worked exceptionally hard to get those modes ready to provide everyone with a small preview of what we were up to when we launched our Multiplayer Beta during E3 2009.

Not only did we feel great that everyone was finally getting some hands-on time with UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer, but we were equally stoked to end E3 2009 with over 20 awards, including 6 "Best in Show" awards.





 

Speculation - Videos: PSP Custom Firmware 6.00 MAC Coming?

250°
259w ago - This PSP Custom Firmware 6.0 based on the recently released PSP Firmware 6.0 is absolute speculation as far as I'm concerned.

Why? Well, where are the new 6.00 theme colours, why not show those real quick in your lengthy video?

Why not boot a game that requires 5.55+ or something? That alone would prove more than just showing the same thing twice.

And what, "like Criss Angel, what you see is what you get?" He's a stunt artist / illusionist. Is this purely a stunt or an illusion? You see what I'm saying, right?

Now don't get me wrong; I'd love a new custom firmware as much as the next guy. So please – prove me/us otherwise.

Anyway, see for yourself – you are the judge.

Videos: Sony's Voice Recognition, Image Enlargement in PS3 SDK

350°
260w ago - Sony has been working on distributing a number of new technologies, already available in some PS3 programs.

The first is voice recognition software, employed by SingStar, that allows the PS3 to quickly recognize up to 20 different languages.

Another technology developed by Sony allows the PS3 and PSP to quickly zoom in on massive images.

Already used in a Japanese release calendar program (available for free from the Japanese PlayStation Store), this technology streams massive amounts of visual data - including video - quickly and scales it appropriately.

To quote: "In SingStar, players are able to quickly go through the song library by simply calling out various commands or speaking the names of artists and songs.

While the technology is currently exclusive to Sony, a report by Dig Info reveals that the company plans on making it available to all PS3 developers in future iterations of the console's software development kit.
Like the SingStar voice recognition tools, this tech will be available for developers in an upcoming SDK update. We're not exactly sure how games will be able to take advantage of this, but it certainly looks impressive."
