Rumor: Two Georgians Say They Have Bigfoot's Body

50°
327w ago - Always enjoy following this stuff... think this is a legitimate discovery or yet another hoax?

To quote: On Friday at a hotel in Palo Alto, Calif., a pair of Bigfoot hunters say they will present what they contend is the most definitive proof yet of an animal that science says does not exist: DNA evidence and photographs of a dead specimen they say they found in a remote swath of woods in northern Georgia.

"It was very frightening at first," said Rick Dyer, 31, a former corrections officer who – coincidentally – runs a business that offers Bigfoot tours. "And it got even more frightening when you saw the others."

Indeed, Mr. Dyer said he and his partner, Matthew Whitton, saw three more of the beasts nearby as they dragged the body of said creature out of the woods. Moreover, Mr. Dyer says he has video clips and photographs to prove it.

One photograph provided to the news media showed what resembled a gorilla – or maybe an old sheepskin rug – lying twisted in a freezer, with a dollop of intestines protruding from its belly.

"There's a lot of comment being made that it looks fake, or it looks like a suit," Mr. Dyer said. "But these people wasn't there when I was sweating, pulling this thing through the woods."

Steinberg: Blu-ray Games to be the Biggest Games in the Industry

50°
328w ago - SCEA product marketing VP Scott Steinberg has said that Sony's "future-proofing" of the PS3 and its plans of a "roadmap" of firmware updates that will add functionality to the machine will make sure the console fulfills a 10-year lifecycle.

Steinberg believes Blu-ray gives the PS3 a significant competitive advantage. "Blu-ray is bigger, and Blu-ray games are going to be the biggest games in the industry" he said.

To quote: Sony would rather update a platform than introduce a new hardware iteration, Steinberg says. "We do not have a planned obsolescence strategy," he says, pointing pointing to the PSP as another example.

"Whether it's Skype or some other peripherals, it's not just a dumb terminal that lies secluded and isn't enhanced with all the recent technologies and opportunities."

Unsurprisingly, he also sees the Blu-ray Disc format as a significant competitive advantage. "Blu-ray is bigger, and Blu-ray games are going to be the biggest games in the industry," he says.

"I think that feeds into [gamers'] choices as well. ...I think there are a lot of great 'a-ha's that consumers are going to find with music, and the movie store. ...You buy it for a gaming machine, but it delivers on a value proposition."
 

Will LittleBigPlanet humilate the Xbox Live system?

100°
328w ago - Chris Stead of Gameplayer has tried to evaluate whether LittleBigPlanet has the ability to literally piss all over Xbox Live and it seems as if he thinks it certainly has the potential to do so.

Stead believes the game will challenge MS's views on user generated content and is the first wave of an onslaught of user-driven experience. He concludes "Indeed, if LittleBigPlanet fulfils its potential, appealing to mainstream and gamer alike, then it could very well force Microsoft's hand by humiliating the revered Xbox Live system."

To quote: As it stands, LittleBigPlanet is set to embarrass Xbox Live and really challenge Microsoft's views on user-generated content. The game has a tremendous amount of hype and having played it for hours now, that hype is certainly warranted.

It'll be a trendsetter for sure, and a host of LittleBigPlanet clones will surely appear down the track, all of which will seemingly need to head to the PS3. And LittleBigPlanet is just the first wave in an onslaught of user-driven experiences, including such big hitters as Guitar Hero: World Tour and Spore.

Indeed, if LittleBigPlanet fulfils its potential, appealing to mainstream and gamer alike, then it could very well force Microsoft's hand by humiliating the revered Xbox Live system.
