Focus Features' Film "9" Trailer Similar to PS3's LittleBigPlanet

100°
291w ago - The first trailer and footage for Focus Features' mysterious film 9 has hit the Web (video linked above) with some striking similarities to a recently released PS3 game.

9 is a story developed and directed by Shane Acker with stylish film vets Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov producing. Like Terminator Salvation, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by machines - only this world is devoid of humans.

You see 9 looks like a sack puppet only he's a living being. He quickly discovers others like him and sets off to discover what wiped out the humans and how he and his companions might be the planet's last hope for survival.

The crew over at Media Molecule must be applauding this trailer right about now. You see, their new PS3 exclusive game LittleBigPlanet also features a protagonist stitched together from a sack held in place with a zipper. Seeing 9 and his buddies in action is eerily reminiscent of the style and aesthetics of playing LittleBigPlanet. The similarities are surely coincidental but cool to note nonetheless.

9 stars the voices of Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Martin Landau, Christopher Plummer and Crispin Glover and will be in theaters on 09-09-2009.
 

RPG Eternal Sonata Composes New PS3 Features Tomorrow

50°
300w ago - Stephanie Fernandez (Localization Producer at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.) has shared the following via PS Blog today:

Hello, my name is Stephanie Fernandez and I worked as the Localization Producer on Eternal Sonata for the PLAYSTATION 3.

Eternal Sonata will be shipping tomorrow, October 21st, and it will include new features and extras that can only be found on the PLAYSTATION 3 platform.

In preparation for the game's release, I wanted to share with you some of my thoughts and insights from working on the game and give you a few more details about the new exclusive content.





When I started working on Eternal Sonata for the PS3, I was pleased to find out there would be additional story material incorporated into the game that is unique to the platform. I had always felt there were some aspects of the story which might be a little too vague for anyone who didn't have the advantage of the background knowledge that I had about the story.

But now there are scenes that give the game player a little more insight; scenes that reveal a bit more general information about the concept behind the story and more specific details regarding character motivations.

Not that everything is spelled out point-by-point-you...

Rumor: PS3 Firmware 2.40 Features In-Game XMB

200°
321w ago - According to Jim Cordeira over at Gaming-Age, the long-awaited Firmware 2.4 update for PlayStation 3 will hit later this summer, complete with a universal friends list and In-Game XMB functionality.

While Sony has yet to comment, it's no secret that a major firmware release is due out soon. Back in March, SCEE UK head Ray Maguire made mention of 2.4, but did not provide specifics - aside from confirming that the update would hit in the summer and include "In-Game communication."

An EA employee who goes by the alias of "evilone" on NeoGAF gave credence to Jim's report, noting that "there is more then just In-Game XMB coming in 2.40."

Until it's release, we're still filing this as a rumor, but there is a good chance it's legit... time will tell for sure.
