350°
271w ago - Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope is officially heading to the PlayStation 3 as rumored, despite Square Enix denying it initially.

The latest Famitsu issue (pictured below) reveals that the previously Xbox 360 exclusive game will be ported to the PS3 as Star Ocean: The Last Hope International. It will be released in Japan on February 4, 2010 and ship simultaneously worldwide

To quote: "The tri-Ace developed, Square Enix published Star Ocean: The Last Hope was released on the Xbox 360 earlier this year. The title is not an Xbox 360 exclusive, it's coming to the PlayStation 3.

Dubbed Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, the game will be hitting the PS3 February 4, 2010 and priced at 8,190 (US$90).

The game features reworked menu screens and a tweaked battle system with auto-targeting. SO4: International also features English and Japanese voice acting options. It really is international!"
 

Video: Bayonetta - The First 10 Minutes for PlayStation 3

271w ago - Today gimmeGTD of GameTrailers have shared a new Bayonetta video which covers the first 10 minutes of the game.

According to [Register or Login to view links], Sega plans to region-lock the title which is quite unusual for a PS3 game indeed.

To quote: "Unsurprisingly, we were told that the Japanese version would not be region free, meaning that North American and European consoles won't play import copies. The reason? It would impact sales of the game outside of Japan, we were told.

That's not that uncommon for Japanese Xbox 360 releases. The vast majority of games released in Japan for Microsoft's box won't play on anything but Japanese consoles. But the PlayStation 3 version? The games are almost all (thankfully) region-free. Locking down that version would be an unusual move on Sega's part."

Below is a 10-minute sneak peek at the upcoming action title developed by Platinum Games. Bayonetta is set for European and North American release in January 2010 on Sony's PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft XBox 360 console.



 

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Review in PlayStation Magazine

50°
271w ago - Naughty Dog Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has shared news of the first Uncharted 2: Among Thieves review today via PlayStation: The Official Magazine.

To quote: We're less than a month out from the launch of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and we're starting to see reviews come in. We just received the November issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine in the studio which has the first world review of UNCHARTED 2.

Subscribers should have this issue in the mail any time now and, if you don't have a subscription, you can pick up a copy from newsstands in the next couple of weeks.

Cracking open the issue, which features UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves as its cover, we were totally thrilled to see that our game received a perfect 5/5 AND the Editors' Choice award for the month!

We've been working incredibly hard over the past two years to make UNCHARTED 2 the best game we've made yet and we're all smiles to hear that we're not the only ones who think we've got something really great on our hands.

You'll have to pick up your own copy to read the ten full pages of UNCHARTED 2 details, but in the meantime here's an image of the cover to serve as a preview.

I'm pretty sure just reading reviews of our game won't...
 

Video: PlayStation 3 - Physics Effects SDK is Demonstrated

400°
271w ago - Last week we profiled videos of Sony's Voice Recognition and Image Enlargement in the PS3 SDK.

Today, courtesy of DigInfo.tv (linked above) we have a video demonstrating Physics Effects from the PlayStation 3 SDK below.

To quote: "At CEDEC 2009, Sony Computer Entertainment exhibited the Physics Effects SDK. The Physics Effects SDK is a physics simulation engine optimized for the Cell Broadband Engine, which is provided as part of the PlayStation 3 SDK.

Because the Physics Effects SDK is optimized for PlayStation 3, it can do physics simulations very fast, even though they are considered to impose a very high computing load.

This could expand developers' scope to include even more complex physical phenomena and mechanisms in games."
