50°
283w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared another Comic-Con 2009 video entitled Castle Crashers coming to PSN.

To quote: Hidden amongst the madness of the Comic-Con 2009 show floor was a gem. Castle Crashers, a game that some hoped would eventually come to PS3, is finally headed our way.

If you're unfamiliar, it's a really clever downloadable co-op action game that utilizes some cool RPG elements for great results. And it was officially announced for PSN at Comic-Con.

We cornered the kind folks at The Behemoth for a little back and forth, so take a look at the video to find out why you need to keep your eye out for Castle Crashers.

And get to know these guys because they promised to come back on the Blog when they have even more to talk about.

Zune Video on Xbox Live Could Finish Blu-ray for HD Streaming

350°
283w ago - Folks at E3 witnessed Microsoft instantly fast forward a streamed 1080p movie right at start up. But how could this be possible?

How can a streamed 1080p movie have instant access to every point of the movie? Doesn't it need to buffer that huge file? Could this be Blu-Ray's true competitor? Or perhaps the beginning of the end for Blu-Ray?

Let's face it, why can't Microsoft sell this same technology to other content distributors, such as Netflix. Or better yet, collaborate with them to create the biggest HD streaming option for consumers, while having the biggest movie library.

TQcast (linked above) recently interviewed Michael Wolf, Senior Marketing Manager at Microsoft, about the upcoming Zune Video on Xbox Live as follows:

Q: What is the name of the new HD streaming technology?

A: The name of the feature is Zune video on Xbox LIVE, which is built on top of Smooth Streaming. Smooth Streaming is a feature of IIS Media Services, a state-of-the-art video delivery platform which enables amazing high quality video experiences that are instant on.

Q: Exactly how is this 1080p HD experience working? 1080p video would be huge files, requiring large amounts of bandwidth, how will this work without buffering timeouts?

Alpha Protocol is a third-person action role-playing game, developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Sega. The release date is currently slated for October 6, 2009 on PlayStation 3, XBox 360 and Microsoft Windows.

The game revolves around the adventures of rookie CIA field agent Michael Thorton. After a mission goes awry, he is cut off from all of his contacts and betrayed by his superiors and is being hunted by the United States government.
