Patapon 2 PSP Demo Arrives on Sony's PlayStation Network

50°
271w ago - SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda has let us know on the PlayStation Blog that the Patapon 2 PSP demo has arrived today.

To quote: The long-awaited much-anticipated PlayStation Network Patapon 2 Demo has been released for mass consumption (i.e. everyone!), so set your PSPs to download and get ready for the war-tastic ethereal musical bliss known as Patapon 2.

What you get, get, get with this fantastic free download is five levels of pure greatness full of Hero Patapon, Patagate, Mater the Tree of Life and all the evolution you can shake a Darwin-sized stick at.

So let's rewind a bit: back in the glorious days of Patapon 1, this majestic perennial (above) was the birthing (and reviving) spot of all Patapon warriors. If you had a couple of rare items and coffers full of ka-ching, you could grow yourself some Rarepons...but it was a bit of a gamble.

Enter Patapon 2, and introducing Mater 2.0, now with Evolution System! It's Patapon creation and reanimation minus the guess work! With the new Evolution System you can clearly see your Patapon's potential and work towards getting him there.

The Evolution System can be simplified into two separate portions: transformation and brawn. The transformation portion is fairly straightforward and linear.

271w ago - Today Sony Santa Monica Studios Sr. Producer Rusty Buchert introduced .deTuned for Sony's PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: I'm here to talk to you about another experiment from the [Register or Login to view links] that will be coming down the pipeline later this year. This one is called .deTuned and is made by [Register or Login to view links], who has been involved in the demoscene for quite a while now. They have done some interesting pieces, which includes [Register or Login to view links], an FPS that is all done with one 96k file.

.deTuned is a bit of an odd beast that offers an abstract and surreal interactive experience like nothing else. It is not exactly a game or an art piece like Linger in Shadows.

It allows you to create your own visual to accompany your favorite music tracks on the XMB, and using the SIXAXIS™ Wireless Controller, you will be able to manipulate the given scene by interacting with and modifying a man and his world. It even lets you tweak your music as you play with it.

Check out some of the photos below. It's all in your hands!

Reeves: PlayStation 3 to be Dominant in 3 to 5 Years

100°
271w ago - Outgoing Sony Europe president David Reeves has said that the PlayStation 3 still has a long way to go before it can overtake Microsoft's Xbox 360 on the market, with the exec predicting it could take up to five more years for the console to become the market leader.

Speaking just days before he's due to retire, Reeves said that despite leaving the company after 15 years, he still believes in Sony and its gaming products.

To quote: "I don't think it will be next year, but in three to five years it will become dominant on the market," said Reeves, talking exclusively to GamesIndustry.biz.

"The legacy will be that people will see a tortoise and hare situation. In a way, in the end it will be a dead heat. People will say PS3 took a while to get going but it really caught up very quickly and confounded many of the critics from the first year," he said of the consoles position on the market.

"When I see the line-up ahead, when I see what's lined up on the new product side, I'm very, very optimistic for what I see for PlayStation's future in the PAL territories," he added.

Reeves retires from Sony Europe tomorrow. He joined Sony in 1995 managing the regional...
