215w ago - It appears Uncharted is definitely getting a movie after all. According to an interview with New York Magazine, creative director of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Amy Hennig, has told fans not to worry.
To quote: "It's definitely in the works, I can tell people. We've got the best possible partners we could in Columbia Pictures.
If anybody's got any fears of them not understanding the material or not loving it as much as we do, they can wipe those fears away, because these guys really get it.
I can say from the meetings I've had with them so far, their hearts and their heads are absolutely in the right place."
When asked about an Uncharted 3 PS3 game, she stated: "I don't think I'm able to talk about any of that right now.
On a completely general level, the PS3 is an amazing piece of hardware that both us and other developers are only now tapping into its full potential."
216w ago - Sony's Santa Monica Studio Director of Product Development John Hight has shared a video today on the PlayStation Blog showcasing the new God of War Collection PS3 trailer, as follows:
You know it's coming and now you can have a sneak peek at the God of War Collection.
Available this November - just in time for the holidays – fans and newcomers to the franchise will be able to experience the epic journey that is God of War and God of War II on the PlayStation 3 for the first time remastered in full HD resolution on a single Blu-ray Disc.
Both critically acclaimed games (originally developed for the PS2) will include 2X anti-aliased graphics running at 60 frames per second for an ultra smooth gameplay experience on the PS3. PlayStation Network trophy support will also be included - a first for the series. Take a look...
And don't forget, the God of War Collection will also include a PSN voucher code for the God of War III E3 2009 Demo. So don't miss your chance to check out God of War III before it hits store shelves in March 2010.
Today I had time so here are some details on exactly what the front of it consists of... I will do a follow-up on the backside and internals soon, and then we'll get into the PS3 Dev aspects of it.
We all remember E3's PS3 - Dual HDMI outputs for extra high-definition widescreen goodness, a built in 3 port gigabit switch, 6 USB ports - features that were trashed. But, on the PS3 Tool, these features are still present, albeit dormant.
Pictured below is the front of the PS3 Tool (click to enlarge it, so you can read the labels), complete with the hidden ports uncovered for you to look at.
The PS3 Tool features, starting from the front left - dual HDD caddies, both sporting a 400GB SATA Hard disk, with eject buttons. - the left most (HDD) is used for the system, while DEV1, holding BD Emulator Images - allowing testing of .ISO's right from a hard disk!
Below that, a Foot Switch Jack is featured which can be used for throwing exceptions for development while playing, among other things.
To the right are 6 USB Ports. The 2 ports marked "extra" were originally intended for the REAR...
220w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a 'first look' video today on the PlayStation Blog of Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines for PSP.
To quote: Recently, Ubisoft invited us over to their San Francisco warren to check out Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines. I wasn't really sure how they were planning on jamming Assassin's Creed's exploration, climbing, and free-running into a PSP, but I've got to say, they've done an excellent job.
In a theme we'll be seeing a lot of this year, developer Griptonite Games didn't produce a watered-down side-scroller and slap the Assassin's Creed name on it - this is a true follow-up to the original, only portable.
The story picks right up where the first one let off, putting you back in the familiar boots and blades of Altair. How do the controls translate to the PSP? What tweaks have been made to the formula?
Has Altair stolen any cool new moves from Ezio (the protagonist of the upcoming Assassin's Creed II)? Producer Frederic Lefrancois and Senior Producer Dan McAuliffe answer these questions - with the added bonus of a bunch of brand new video.
