Company Says Sony PlayStation 3 to Support 3D Gaming in 2009

400°
291w ago - The president of a 3D certification and advocacy group has revealed that Sony fully intends to support 3D gaming and Blu-ray 3D on the PlayStation 3 in 2009.

It will need a BIOS upgrade to work, and it is speculated that 3D gaming may be unique to the PS3 out of all other gaming consoles.

To quote: According to Neil Schneider, President and CEO of Meant to be Seen (MTBS), Blitz Games Studios has confirmed that Sony "fully intends" to support stereoscopic 3D gaming and Blu-ray 3D on PS3 in 2009 with their Blitz Tech engine. MTBS is a stereoscopic 3D certification and advocacy group.

Andrew Oliver, CTO of Blitz Games Studios says, "3D gaming on console is coming and we license the tech."

"The best part is console support will only need a bios upgrade to work," Schneider writes. "We are told that the ability to add this capability via bios may be unique to Sony PS3 versus the other console solutions."

Stereoscopic 3D is the ability to display visible depth through two dimensional media. According to MTBS, stereoscopic 3D has proven to be successful in cinema with movies like Beowulf, U23D, and Hannah Montana, earning 2:1 and 3:1 revenue compared to traditional 2D theaters.

Did the PlayStation 3 Have the Best Software in 2008?

200°
291w ago - Everyone is asking whether or not 2008 could be considered "the year of the PS3," and while it certainly closed the gap, the system still has a long ways to go from a sales perspective.

And while we're 100% certain the console will have the best exclusives in 2009 (do we really have to list those again?), this is a time for reflection. So...did the PS3 have the best software this year? Did the exclusives outstrip that of the competition?

As for the best games of the year, it had Grand Theft Auto IV, but there's no doubt that the driving software force in 2008 for the PS3 was Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Many will put this up against Gears of War 2 and GTAIV for their Game of the Year pick, and... well, the Wii doesn't even have games, does it?

Yeah. No, it doesn't. So it's a two-horse race for this year, and because most everything is multiplatform these days, maybe it's best to compare the PS3's "Big 3" against the 360's "Big 3."

Sure, stuff like GTAIV, Fallout 3, Dead Space, Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero: World Tour, Call of Duty: World at War, Devil May Cry 4, Far Cry 2, Burnout Paradise, and Soul Calibur III are multi-console hits, and most all are almost identical between the PS3 and 360. So, about that big 3: the way I see it, it's MGS4, LBP and Resistance 2 versus...
 

PlayStation 3 Graphics to Streak Ahead of XBox 360 in 2009?

300°
291w ago - The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have been locked in a deadly battle for graphical supremacy since their respective launches.

Despite the PS3's much talked about processing power superiority, the 360 versions have managed to hold their own and often have the ability to outshine their PS3 counterparts.

Even though exclusive titles are said to be the true indication of a consoles graphical prowess, upcoming games like Resident Evil 5 have arguably some of the most intense visuals despite the multi-platform issue. It is becoming more apparent that when the Xbox is the lead platform, developers have more trouble porting it to Sony's console, but when that situation is reversed, both versions seem to reap the benefits, which is an interesting turn of events.

Gears of War - Mad World Cinematic





The 360 hit first with its wildly successful third person shooter, Gears of War. Utilising the Unreal Engine 3, EPIC crafted a visually impressive world, which was renowned for its oppressive, achromatic colours that depicted the harsh nature of war.

Though Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was certainly an impressive display of lighting and vivid environments, the PS3's big gun; MGS4 would be...
 

MLB 09 The Show - Hear Yourself Cheer In-Game on PlayStation 3

200°
291w ago - Today Public Relations Manager Alex Armour announced the following news:

MLB 09 The Show is officially announced today, ready to arrive this coming Spring on the PS3, PSP, and PS2. As the market leader in the baseball category, the team did not want to rest on their laurels and churn out a lackluster effort.

For this year, the team is including a number of new features and visual detail to once again bring the best and most realistic sports gaming experience available.

Last year we allowed players to import their own music from the PS3 hard drive so they could listen in game. Now, the team has gone a step further by creating the "My MLB Music" feature. This will allow players to use the in-game music editor to create snipits of music that can be saved and used as customized walk up music for their favorite players.

Additionally, have you ever screamed at your TV at a bad (or good) play when engaged in a sports game? Well now your voice can be heard IN THE GAME by allowing users to record their own fan chants and yells and integrate them seamlessly into the ambient crowd noise. It'll sound like you're really there.

Of course the team is all over the details and as the leading baseball game simulator out there, how could they not? Transitional lighting...
