MLB The Show '09 - True 1080p60 on the PlayStation 3 Console

100°
289w ago - The biggest improvement to the game comes from MLB 09's native 1080p support. The game runs at an uncompromised 1920–1080 native resolution with no AA.

In this respect, it's identical to the '08 game, but the key difference is that unlike the last game, MLB '09 displays a full 60 frames per second on the 1080p setting vs the 30fps of its predecessor.

The '08 1080p mode had few other losses on visual effects such as depth of field, which is retained and improved in both 720p and 1080p modes on the new game.





To quote: First of all, MLB The Show '09 is running at 60 frames per second at native 720p with 2xMSAA, unchanged from its predecessor. The character modeling and the texture details seem more or less on the same level with '08 as well, but close-in some improvements are evident: check out these shots of the players.

The most significant change however, is the crowd rendering, as it's much more diverse now with visible improvements on the level of detail. This is a great addition to '09, since its predecessor already had some of the best crowd graphics in any sports title, but its one shortcoming was the person duplication which becomes painfully obvious at times.

The one real...
 

Video: Live Headshot Killzone 2 Demo for PlayStation 3

289w ago - In the Killzone 2 demo for PS3 you can do some serious damage to the enemy, but only if you acquire the special gun.

And here's just how you do that - throw a grenade at the guy that's standing on the roof of the building inside the warehouse. It will make him run and get blown up off the building and allow you to pick up his gun.

Below is a video of it courtesy of nublet06 via YouTube.. and the caption reads as follows:

"Footage of me killing some dudes with head exploding headshots with the sta14 gun in the demo of Killzone 2. Get this gun by throwing a grenade at the guy thats standing on the roof of the buildin..."

289w ago - As most are aware, Sony's PlayStation Home 1.10 Patch arrived a [Register or Login to view links]. The update weighs in at 77MB, and automatically downloads the next time you sign in.

However, GamerRiley of TheSixthAxis (linked above) has discovered a serious problem with the new PS Home 1.10 patch... it seems you can walk off the map, similar to PC games with the "NoClip" cheats!

Additionally, PlayStation Home Manager Locust_Star [Register or Login to view links] shared a peek into what to expect in terms of content updates in the very near future as follows:

•A proverbial boatload of game spaces - including spaces for Warhawk, SOCOM, Resistance, and many, many more (we'll announce more spaces in the coming weeks)...

•Of course, you're all aware of the EA Sports Complex. But let's just say that is coming sooner rather than later. And it's cooler than you imagined.

•These spaces will usher in the next phase of Home. They will begin to utilize this uber-powerful platform's true capabilities. We're talking unlocking items in the games you play from Home (and vice versa),...
 

Hands On: X-Men Origins: Wolverine for PlayStation 3

250°
289w ago - Welcome to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. One could talk about the various nuances of its gameplay, but overwhelmingly only one aspect of the game truly stands out: it's violent. Really, really violent.

The insatiable rage of Wolverine reminds us quite a bit of another angry video game protagonist: God of War's Kratos. But the similarities between these two games don't end there.

The combat is very reminiscent of Sony's game; many of the moves and combos in the game look quite similar. One particular move - a spin attack - has a very obvious counterpart in Sony's game.

Wolverine has access to a number of brutal grabs and finishing moves. Just like the Spartan warrior, he'll rip enemies in half, tear off their limbs, and skewer them on various sharp objects in the environment. God of War is a great model to follow, but Wolverine manages to feel even more visceral.

Take, for example, the representation of Wolverine's health. His character model reflects all the damage he's taken. If he gets shot, you'll see a bullet in his body. If he gets cut, you'll see a giant gash. After a furious firefight, you can see clear into his body, with exposed organs and bone. It's rather gruesome, but it really emphasizes Wolverine's incredible ability to regenerate. You'll see his body heal in...
 

Sony: PlayStation 3 is Future-Proof, Will Last Longer Than PS2

400°
289w ago - Against all odds, the PlayStation 2 is still hanging around, though it's ailing rapidly. According to Sony though, the PlayStation 3 will last even longer. To quote:

Speaking to T3 via [Register or Login to view links], a Sony rep made a statement that discourages the thought of expecting a PlayStation 4 anytime soon.

"PS2 was still going strong after eight years, and with the power the Cell processor provides, not to mention the fact that PS3 is inherently future-proof, we see the PS3 sales curve far outlasting that of PS2."

Meanwhile, most analysts seem to think that new consoles will be hitting in 2011 or 2012. The PlayStation 3 is indeed a powerful console, so it'll be interesting to see if developers can continue unlocking the machine's full potential four or even five years down the road.
