To quote: After months of demo events across the world from gamescom in Germany to PAX Prime in Seattle, combined with THOUSANDS of cumulative man-hours for our small independent team in Finland, burning the midnight oil and sweating like crazy play-testing our game, we're FINALLY ready to break the news right back here where we started.
What better way to do that than with an all-new trailer? Have a peek at the clip below to see what people have being saying all year, and get the leg up on exactly when you too can literally step into the world of Kung-Fu LIVE and lay the smack down in your living room!
That's right! If you're in Europe, then you can download your way into the action on 8th December. We know it's been a long time coming, and we've always wanted to get this game to you before the last of the leaves hit the ground in 2010.
So, as soon as it's officially too cold to practice your kung-fu moves outside, you'll get an indoor option that will also transport you to a far off land of street thugs, ninja assassins, and four story-tall giants looking to...
131w ago - SCEE Senior Producer Mark Green has shared some videos today spotlighting TV Superstars for PlayStation 3: Behind The Scenes.
To quote: Behind the facade of celebrity is where the real work begins: TV Superstars was created specifically for the new Move controllers and the PlayStation Eye.
In these 'Making of TV Superstars' videos you can go behind the scenes with the development team to see just how they made the game.
In the first video the team talk about the design considerations behind making a Move game; what worked well and what was changed.
In the second video, the team discuss their inspiration for the game and the mechanics of how you can become the ultimate TV Superstar, and in the third and final video, the developers talk about the way in which the game captures your facial likeness and shout-out and presents you as an avatar in game.
To quote: As most of you already know, there is a 4GB file limitation imposed by FAT32 hard drives. When using an external hard drive and trying to copy certain games with large files, problems may occur.
PS3Splitter has come to the rescue, allowing users to break up large 4GB+ files into smaller files. This app will automatically scan for large files that require splitting. Making things easy for the user to get their games working on external hard drives.
The method currently supports Open Manager and Gaia Manager. Also make sure to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile before using PS3Splitter.
• Automatic scan of selected directory including sub directories for files larger than FAT32...
