GDC '09: Insomniac Makes Available PS3 Water Tech for Devs

50°
283w ago - Insomniac Games Engine Director Mike Acton announced today that the PS3 Water Tech code is now freely available for developers to use:

Hello from GDC 09! My name is Mike Acton and I'm the Engine Director at [Register or Login to view links]. Last year at GDC we announced our [Register or Login to view links] and how we were going to use that to share some of the source code and research that happens here at Insomniac Games with the industry as a whole.

I'm really pleased to say that over the last year we've seen a lot of good responses to that initiative. From individual students, to large studios and publishers, and even companies outside the industry, we've seen that people are interested in using what we have offered and contributing back ideas and changes.





Nocturnal is really about giving back to the industry. We know that we're here because we learned from those that came before us and we have a responsibility to give back in turn.

We take that responsibility very seriously and so we've worked hard to make sure we've added regularly to both our research documentation and source code over the last year. Just about every two weeks...

Sony PlayStation Home for PlayStation 3 is Live, but Tech Issues

100°
298w ago - From TedTheDog, PlayStation Home Community Manager today:

* Technical updates are progressing and as you have probably seen the 1.03 patch is available for existing users already but the service remains unavailable whilst work is carried out

* Service should be back up everywhere early PM UK time although theres no specific time as theres a long list of actions being worked through in Europe, America, Asia and Japan

* New comers to the service will find the Home icon on their XMB once we activate it. You wont have to look for it, it will be easy to spot and will appear under PlayStationŽNetwork. However, if you are online on your PS3 when we activate it you will need to restart your PS3 for it to appear. Watch these forums for news on when that is. It will work like Folding@Home in that the icon will be there and you'll download the service when you first select it.

Edit 3pm: Still progressing nicely, now on the testing stage. No eta still as I wouldnt want to guess how long it will take for each region to verify its elements are working but we're getting there.

Edit 3:15pm: Not there yet, the testing is still going on, but I wanted to mention a couple of other things that need clarification.

The Far Cry2 and Uncharted spaces will not be...
