PlayTV ships 85,000 units in the United Kingdom

300°
305w ago - Sony has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that PlayTV has shipped 85,000 units to retailers in the UK.

The hardware add-on, which acts as a freeview box and personal video recorder, went on sale last weekend and retails for GBP 69.99.

Pre-orders for the peripheral were around 9,000 according to Sony. Momentum is building in the run up to Christmas, with specialist and national press giving thumbs up to the device, which strengthens the PlayStation 3's status as a multimedia hub for the living room.

Again, that's only numbers for the UK... The hardware is being rolled-out across the rest of Europe until December, but there are currently no plans to release PlayTV in the US.
 

Warhammer Online Character Tracking Live

50°
305w ago - From their blog, linked above: You spoke and we listened. As of today, you'll be able to track your Warhammer Online characters in your Raptr profile. Once you enter your character(s), we automatically track your characters' items, levels, and Renown in your feeds for all you friends to see.

So if you hit Level 40 before any of your friends, they'll know about it. Of course, we created a custom module for your characters, so visitors to your profile page can check them out and see how you're doing.

Timezone Support
For those of you not in the Pacific time zone, we've also added a timezone option that will update all charts to reflect your time zone. Simply go to your Account Settings page and select the proper time zone. Now you'll know for sure when your friends around the world are playing Rock Band 2 at midnight in your own time zone.

We've also made some big behind the scenes improvements to our search engine. First, we made the button prettier and easier to understand that you can change what you're searching directly from the header. We made the search engine much faster, so if your friends joined only a little while ago, they should show up in search results in just a few minutes.

Last but not least, we added...
 

Free Radical asking fans where they want TimeSplitters 4?

50°
306w ago - TimeSplitters 4 could truly end up on any console. The previous TimeSplitters title ended up on the Xbox, PS2, and GameCube, so it is more than likely that Free Radical will follow up with a 360, PS3, and Wii release for TimeSplitters 4.

However, Free Radical wants to know what the fans are interested in - A poll is up and running on the company's Web site and is asking which console people wish to play the next TimeSplitters game on.

As of the time of writing, the Wii is leading the poll with 65% while the PS3 and 360 are trailing with about 15% each.

This poll could end up as being superfluous if Free Radical makes the decision to release TimeSplitters 4 on all platforms, but it would be interesting to know if the results will influence the development of the game in one way or another.
 

Crytek Seeking PlayStation 3 Programmer

100°
306w ago - Crytek is officially hiring for the PlayStation 3, prompting more speculation (from us) that its hi-tech PC shooter Crysis is heading to console in some form.

A job ad that's appeard on the Germans dev's Web site is advertising for a PS3 console programmer to develop "Next-Generation GameFramework based on CryEngine 2.0".

The applicant must have fives-plus or more years C++ experience and have shipped "at least 1 title for Nintendo GameCube, PS2 or XBOX or simultaneously." What if I've actually made two PS3 games then, is that not good enough to be a PS3 programmer?

The position doesn't come as too much of a surprise as Crytek's already gone on the record saying all of its future titles will be multiplatform from now on.

With that considered, this is probably a move to make CryEngine 2 work on consoles - but we'd still like to see Crysis on PS3, if only so we can run it.

The full job specs follow if you fancy your chances.

Requirements:

• Shipped at least 1 title for Nintendo GameCube, PS2 or XBOX or simultaneously
• 5 or more years C++ object oriented experience
• Strong 3D math and graphics background
• Ability and desire to innovate, contribute and polish all aspects of a game
• Experience with next...
