Video: Tour of Ys Seven for PSP and PSPgo Handheld Consoles

50°
228w ago - Today XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has shared a video tour of Ys Seven for PSP and PSPgo handheld consoles.

To quote: Today, our focus will be on the game world as we reveal to you all the Seven Wonders of Ys Seven – seven locations that help define the game and keep its story moving. So sit back, relax, take in the new trailer and enjoy!

1. Altago City

The centerpiece of the game's story. This is where Adol and Dogi first make landfall in the Altaginian countryside. And, unlike most of the cities they've visited over the years, it does NOT offer them a particularly warm welcome. Still, that doesn't make this trade capital any less impressive!

Not only is the city a real sight to behold, it also includes a sprawling port for some of the largest naval vessels in the world. Its sheer size and magnificence makes it one of Ys Seven's wonders, and its seedy, intricate history makes it a true contender for the #1 spot.





2. Shrine of Origins

Unearthed only recently, this mysterious cave contains artifacts from a distant time, featuring unknown markings. A sense of mystery pervades every last crevasse, and to any travelers who dare traverse its darkened spirals, I can...

To quote: Speaking to the [Register or Login to view links], Kotick claims that 60 percent of Xbox Live users are there "principally because of Call of Duty," and that Activision doesn't see a fair share of the money from it.

Kotick described closed console networks as "walled gardens," and said that his company would "very aggressively" support PC manufacturers such as Dell and HP in any efforts to produce gamer-friendly PCs that plug directly into televisions, creating the opportunity for Activision to open an online network of its own.

Kotick made similar statements to The Wall Street Journal last month, claiming at the time that only 30 percent of the company's profits come from console games.

To quote: I wanted to let you know that on April 15, 2010 Microsoft will discontinue Xbox LIVE service for original Xbox consoles and games, including Xbox 1 games playable on Xbox 360.

While I can't comment on the specifics, this change will allow us to continue evolving the LIVE service with new features and experiences that fully harness the power of Xbox 360 and the Xbox LIVE community.

We did not make this decision lightly, but after careful consideration and review we realize that this decision will allow us unprecedented flexibility for future features.
