D3Publisher Introduces New White Knight Chronicles II Characters

300°
162w ago - D3Publisher Assistant Producer Miki Takahashi has introduced some of the new characters today in the upcoming White Knight Chronicles II title for PlayStation 3.

To quote: I wanted to give you a brief outline of the story and characters of White Knight Chronicles ll, which will hit U.S. PS3s this fall.

The original game "White Knight Chronicles: International Edition" (included with WKCII) began with the day of Princess Cisna's coming-of-age banquet in the Kingdom of Balandor.

When the ceremony is suddenly raided by a mysterious organization called Magi, young winemaker apprentice Leonard lead the princess to safety in the castle cellars, where he found a legendary weapon called the Incorruptus.

Leonard gains the knightly powers of the Incorruptus and sets out on a journey to save Princess Cisna with his friends: Yulie, Leonard's childhood friend; Eldore, an old but skilled warrior; and Caesar, the son of the ruler of Greede.

However, the journey to rescue Princess Cisna became a harsh one. They overcame many challenges before Leonard and his friends came to realize that they had gotten caught up in a war that had been raging since ancient times – the Dogma Wars, a brutal battle that begin 10,000 years ago across the entire continent. And they may have...

Video: Remastering God of War: Origins Collection for PS3

200°
162w ago - Ready At Dawn Studios Art Director Nathan Phail-Liff has shared some video footage today on the remastering God of War: Origins Collection for the PS3 entertainment system.

Re-mastering both of the God of War PSP games in full HD for the PS3 God of War: Origins Collection definitely had its share of challenges for us.

The first goal we had was simply the daunting task of up-rezing the engine and content authored on a PSP running at 480 x 272 resolution and 30 frames per second to 1920 x 1080p at a steady 60 fps on the PS3.

This required a custom PS3 version of our engine, coded in-house exclusively for the Origins Collection, as well as a painstaking process by art team. We ended up going through every single character in the game and doubling or tripling polygon count by hand, as well as up-rezing and re-painting every texture across both games at 4x resolution on both characters and environments.





Being gluttons for punishment, we also decided from the beginning of the project that just re-mastering content from PSP resolution to 1080p wasn't necessarily challenging enough (as a quick aside...we were wrong), so we also wanted to take advantage of our custom PS3 engine and try to implement full stereoscopic 3D support.
 

Sony and LG Settle Blu-ray Patent Dispute via Cross-Licensing Deal

162w ago - Quite some time ago we reported that Korean company LG wanted Sony's PlayStation 3 and Bravia televisions banned in the US for patent infringements relating to Blu-ray playback.

Today Reuters (linked above) reports that both Sony and LG have finally settled their bitter Blu-ray patent dispute through a cross-licensing deal.

To quote: "LG Electronics and Sony said on Thursday that they have resolved patent disputes between the two firms spanning smartphones, TVs and Blu-ray technology, with LG adding that they have signed a cross-licensing deal.

LG and Sony recently agreed to drop patent infringement lawsuits against each other," a spokeswoman at South Korea's LG Electronics said. Sony confirmed this, but declined to comment further.

Sony had filed a complaint against LG with the U.S. International Trade Commission, seeking to block LG from shipping its Rumor Touch and several other smartphones to the United States.

LG also told the...
