154w ago - John Koller, the director of Hardware Marketing for Sony, has brought news from E3 2010 - this time a release date for the Playstation Move and details on the official Move Charger and Shooting Attachment.
To quote: It's a big day for PlayStation as today we unveiled an unparalleled software lineup, a premium extension to the PlayStation Network called PlayStation Plus and huge momentum on the hardware front with 3D gaming and PlayStation Move, at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles.
With the launch of the world's first 1:1 motion gaming platform for the PlayStation 3 system, PlayStation Move, in North America on September 19, 2010, this truly changes everything. Never before has a player been able to "become" the character in the game... until now.
PlayStation Move puts you right in the middle of the action with deep, rich high definition graphics, dynamic gameplay and complete immersion into the game, all of which is only possible on the PlayStation 3 system.
As we previously announced at GDC, PlayStation Move will be available at retailers in North America in a variety of options starting September 21, 2010:
PlayStation Move motion controller - Available as a standalone for $49.99 (MSRP).
159w ago - The release date for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker on PSP is a little over a month away, but the game may have a future beyond the PlayStation Portable.
According to GamePro's Ben PerLee, an interesting interlude took place during a recent Peace Walker Bootcamp, to quote:
"So after I had done the preview, [Konami] had a Q/A session with us to get our complaints/ideas about the game," PerLee reported.
"Other than the basics, they asked what we thought about if they released it on PSN for the PS3 as well and had online multiplayer."
While it's not uncommon for a developer to ask journalists these focus-group questions, it is interesting to note that the Konami representative asking the questions actually wrote down the answers.
It could just be that the developer wants to anticipate criticisms of the game in forthcoming reviews, or it could be research for Hideo Kojima's new mystery project. Or there could indeed be a PSN release for Peace Walker farther down the line.
161w ago - Today Producer Yoshinori Ono has officially announced a new Super Street Fighter IV release for Sony's PS3 entertainment system!
To quote: I've listened to PlayStation users voice their opinions for the past 10 years. They've said, "We're waiting for the next numbered sequel to Street Fighter!"
I have to apologize that it took Capcom almost a decade to make the decision... but, I really appreciate your continuous support, and I'm now armed with weapons and armor to fight as Capcom's voice in this tough global market.
