Video: Remastering God of War: Origins Collection for PS3

200°
167w 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.

100°
167w 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.

Video: Retro / Grade at PAX 2011 and PSN Gameplay Trailer

100°
167w ago - 24 Caret Games Co-founder Matt Gilgenbach has shared some Retro / Grade PAX 2011 details alongside a PSN gameplay trailer today.

To quote: We've been hard at work making a must-have PS3 downloadable game for PSN.

If you're like me and you can barely remember your own name, let me refresh your memory about [Register or Login to view links].

Retro/Grade is an innovative fusion between a rhythm game and a sidescrolling shooter that has received the IndieCade audience award as well as two Independent Game Festival nominations.

The game begins when you have just singlehandedly fended off an alien invasion, but all the destruction damaged the space/time continuum, which caused the flow of time itself to reverse. What would have been the final boss is actually the beginning of your backwards journey.





Since time is going in reverse, you must undo your actions in the space skirmish to protect the health of the space time continuum. This means you have to dodge enemy projectiles returning to the enemies that fired them while un-firing your projectiles as they return to your ship. It is easier than it sounds since everything is timed to the beat of the original retro game inspired soundtrack.

the_ghost__NL: what can we do in the co-op mode?

Co-op Mode enables you to play through a single season alongside a friend. Imagine the single-player experience (minus the paddock) with your friend as team-mate. It brings an entirely new dimension to Practice, Qualifying and Race sessions... can you win the Constructor's together?

Tom_Sheldon: Is the co-op championship available online or just split-screen only?

Co-op is only available Online. Elements of it are too complex system for Split-Screen
