Video: E3 2009 Virtual Booth Tour: MAG for PlayStation 3

50°
281w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared the second in their "Virtual Booth Tour" series, namely MAG for PS3.

To quote: You've probably seen some quick demonstrations of MAG, but that's not enough time to do this complex game justice. In this video, [Register or Login to view links] designer Ben Jones takes us through the flow of a massive 256-player battle.

Apologies for the audio pops - it was quite loud on the show floor!





We'll have more video booth tours coming this week!
 

Gran Turismo PlayStation Home Space Plus Features Detailed

250°
281w ago - Details have surfaced on a new PlayStation Home space for the long-awaited racer Gran Turismo 5.

Similar to EA's Sports Complex in Home, this space will offer a racing minigame and include a special interaction with Gran Turismo 5.

Apparently users will win Home items and accessories depending on how and with what you win races in the actual game.

To quote: Everyone loves EA's Sports Complex and the mini games, especially the mini racing game right? Well you're gonna love GT5 Home Space.

From what I hear the Home space is gonna have a similar feature as EA's mini race car game. A cool feature for any GT5 racing fan.

This Home space will also have some sort of connection with the game as far as whatever achievement you do in the game will have an effect in the Home space.

Lets say you purchase items in the game like a corvette or a viper, then you go into Home and you receive a statue of a corvette or a viper that you put in you Home apartment for decoration and the same thing in Home. You purchase a clothing article or something in Home and you receive something in the game.

This is cool and genius. Both GT5 game and Home Space will...
 

PlayStation Eye More Precise Than Microsoft's Project Natal?

500°
281w ago - No doubt the major talk of E3 2009 was all about the motion-sensing technologies demoed by Sony and Microsoft at their press conferences.

Microsoft's Project Natal's major selling point is full-body recognition and the promise of a controller-less game experience, while Sony's PlayStation Eye-powered motion tech aims to turn a single controller into any virtual item imaginable (i.e. swords, tennis racquets, whips, whiskey bottle, etc.).

To quote: Sony's director of marketing John Holler told [Register or Login to view links] that the PlayStation Eye is "more accurate and more precise" than Microsoft's motion-sensing tech, and, even though Project Natal's full-body scanning capabilities is "impressive," it also, allegedly, suffers from "depth issues on the Z-axis."

This assessment is obviously impossible to confirm until some impartial testing can be done, so we'll just have to take Holler's comments with a PS3-emblazoned grain of salt for now.

What's perhaps more interesting about this whole ridiculously premature debate about technologies that are still years away from landing in living rooms is that Project Natal certainly does seem designed to out-casual the casual gaming genre Nintendo ushered...
