Gran Turismo in Four Times the Resolution of Full HD at 2160p!

100°
297w ago - At a 10-year anniversary event, Polyphony Digital presented two technological trials for the next generation.

Both of the presentations were founded on the philosophy of "achieving the highest possible quality" held over the years by Gran Turismo... showing it off that at 2160p.

It was all part of a time trial showcasing Sony's latest SRX-S110 projector technology, which can support resolutions of 4096 x 2160 pixels.

To quote: One of these, was a time trial competition using Sony's newest digital cinema projector, the "SRX-S110". Gran Turismo 5 prologue is already in Full HD resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels, providing the highest resolution possible in today's TV content.

However in this time trial, the Full HD image was increased to twice the resolution both vertically and horizontally (4x the surface area), enabling game play at an ultra high resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.

This was performed by connecting and synchronizing four Playstation 3's outputting a quarter of the image each at 1920x1080 pixels, but you must remember this demands an extremely high quality image from the source that can withstand the ultra high resolution.

It can be said that this demonstration was only made possible, because the source image was Gran Turismo.

Four Games we want Hideo Kojima to work on after MGS

50°
316w ago - We are taking a look at four Hideo Kojima games that we would like to see resurrected. Now that Solid Snake's tale has come to an end, Hideo Kojima has plenty of time to dabble in the worlds outside of the Metal Gear universe.

After all, the man is no one trick pony; he has many other series' that fans of his would love to either see remakes of or better yet, new iterations. So without further ado, we present to you readers, the 4 games we would like to Mr. Kojima work on in the future.

Snatcher
Snatcher was a game that was doomed from the start here in North America. Not only did it debut at the end of the Sega CD's life, but hardly anyone bought the add-on resulting in poor sales. Yet, over the years, this cyber-punk adventure would gain a small cult following of hardcore Hideo Kojima fans. Snatcher was basically the video game adaptation of Blade Runner, centered on a "Runner" named Gillian Seed, an amnesiac new recruit of JUNKER.

It's the job of the Runners to hunt down "Snatchers", artificial life forms with the appearances of humans. It's up to Gillian to stop the Snatchers before they over run both Neo Kobe and the world. If players pay special attention to detail, they will notice a lot of Metal Gear Solid references, as well as ones to...

317w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) will be launching the fourth version of PlayStation 2 (PS2) by Diwali this year. This will simultaneously be released in the European and Indian markets, said SCE country manager (PlayStation) Atindriya Bose to ET.

The higher-end version promises to be slimer, sleeker and more suave in its looks. There will be no more external AC adapters, all of which will be in-built and the product price will also be the same as the earlier version (Rs 6,990).

SCE India will also be launching the playstation network for their PlayStation 3 in India, which will allow gamers to download free games and also buy them online. This portal is already available in the US and Europe.

"The PlayStation Network is ready for India. It is only the integration of the payment gateway that needs to be done." said Mr Bose. We shall launch it by the end of this fiscal, he added.

Sony PlayStation, over the last 13 years, has evolved as every gamers aspiration. It has its own cult following and to grow this base, SCE wants to market PS2 as gaming console for novices of all age groups and class.

"PS2 is an entry-level console, which helps first timers to enter the gaming zone," said Mr Bose. While PS3 failed to make as great an impact as PS2, SCE wants...
 

Another Four Game Publishers pull out of E3 2008

50°
326w ago - Today another 4 game publishers have pulled out of this year's E3 conference, adding to Activision and Vivendi who have also discontinued their membership with the Entertainment Software Association (ESA).

So far those who have confirmed that they will not be attending include Codemasters, NCSoft, Her Entertainment, id Software, Vivendi, and Activision.

Several industry sources say the drop outs are down to ESA's latest president Mike Gallagher. Analyst Michael Pachter agrees with this theory and says that Gallagher is "far less knowledgeable and sophisticated" than the previous president and that publishers no longer see the value in the ESA.

To quote: Lowenstein was a very savvy industry veteran who paid attention to the goings-on in the industry and cared what the community had to say, Pachter said.

The new person... whose name completely escapes me because I've never met him or heard from him, is far less knowledgeable and sophisticated about this industry than Doug was and is going to make some rookie mistakes.

Doug used to be a very visible spokesperson in congress... when you'd get these [things like] Barack Obama saying videogames are corrupting our youth or MADD saying that Take-Two should pull GTA off t he shelves, you would hear Lowenstein...
