Redoubt Introduces PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour PS3

50°
185w ago - Today Associate Producer Eric Miller at Redoubt has introduced PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour for the PS3 entertainment system via PlayStation Move.

To quote: Developing PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour has been great fun, with plenty of challenges involved as well as some perks such as being able to get direct access to the PDC for Character and Environment reference photography, access to top Darts manufacturers such as Harrows and Winmau and getting to meet Sid Waddell and John Gwynn - more on these guys later!

Of course, being one of the first PlayStation Move motion controller titles has made developing this game distinctly different from anything we've been involved with previously.

Unpacking the prototype units we received early in development and getting to play with it in the prototype environment that Sony provide caused quite a stir around the office, with everyone eventually coming over to have a quick go; of course, once we'd implemented it into Darts: Pro Tour they came back again to see how we'd done!

The PlayStation Move is such a natural fit for a Darts game, and it truly feels great to load up the latest build, stand up and fire off a 9-Darter (I've had a lot of practice!) to hear Sid and John exclaim about the spectacle!

To quote: Greetings from the future. The sun is slowing rising on what is sure to be a beautiful Saturday morning, here in Tokyo. It's officially the third day of the Tokyo Game Show, and we haven't missed a beat.

PlayStation blew the roof off the Makuhari Messe convention center, with colossal announcements and tons of games. The PlayStation booth is sprawling with thousands of eager members of the press and gamers waiting to get their hands on the latest PS3 titles on PlayStation Move, and our favorite portable, the PSP.

With a video interview with devs on the new Devil May Cry, and a in-depth chat with The Last Guardian's director and designer, Fumito Ueda – shot, captured and ready to edit.





I ventured off on my next assignment – to capture our mammoth and most impressive showing at the Tokyo Game Show yet.
