Tretton: PS3 Will Be Lead Development Platform

50°
352w ago - According to SCEA boss Jack Tretton, developers are now starting to create their games on the PS3 first and then later port over code to the 360 to ensure a smoother development cycle.

To quote: We are now starting to see developers creating games on PS3 and then porting them to other platforms such as EA's Burnout.

Developers are telling us that they are starting to create their games on PS3 first and take advantage of the hardware capabilities and then port down to other platforms so we are seeing tremendous progress from the third party community in terms of what they are able to do with our development kits.

Hopefully the days of delayed PS3 ports are indeed coming to an end
 

VideoGamer Rumor Mill

355w ago - Welcome to the Rumor mill, VideoGamer.com's run-down of the big rumors currently doing the rounds in the video game industry. Every week we'll hunt down the juiciest stories and give our opinion on how legit they are. So, whether you want the ridiculous or the plausible, read on.

The Sims 3 early in 2009
The Rumor: EA has pencilled in a February 2009 release date for a true The Sims sequel, the first since The Sims 2 launched in September 2004.

Verdict: EA has certainly been milking The Sims 2, with a string of expansion packs and 'Stuff" packs steadily released to keep players hooked. It already seems about time for a series overhaul so come early 2009 players we'll certainly be wanting more. What's more, February 2009 will mark the ninth anniversary of the The Sims.

Plausibility rating: 3/5

Gauntlet coming to Wii and Nintendo DS
The Rumor: Backbone Entertainment is working on a new game in the Gauntlet franchise for Nintendo DS - Wi-Fi Connection multiplayer for up to four-players included. A version is also coming to Wii.

Verdict: Gauntlet hasn't seen a new release since the rather poor Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows (published and developed by Midway) and it's fair to say interest in the franchise isn't all that high. That said the game's multiplayer element...

356w ago - A rare pair of Nike Air Force 1 PlayStation sneakers are currently up for auction on eBay with the highest bid currently at $1000.

The shoes were apparently only given to celebrities and Sony execs and were never made available to the public.

Worth the hefty pricetag for a pair of sneakers or not?
 

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Demo Back on the World Map!

50°
358w ago - Christophe Balestra, the Co-President Naughty Dog has posted up an update to the Uncharted demo region lock situation. He once again states that the locking was a mistake but the issue has now been fixed and a new demo has been posted of which the whole entire world can play and enjoy.

To quote: Christophe Balestra, here, and I'm Co-President at Naughty Dog. I wanted to give a final update on the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune demo situation.

We're really sorry about what happened and didn't anticipate this at all. We just didn't know people from other territories could connect to the US PLAYSTATION Network Store and download demos ... now we do! We've been too busy working on the game to wrap our head's around the infrastructure of the PSN.

We absolutely did not plan the demo to be region locked. As soon as we figured out the problem existed, Sam Thompson called me and I jumped into my car, drove to the office and fixed it right away. It's an honest mistake and we didn't try to prevent anybody from enjoying the Uncharted demo. I feel even more sorry because most of the people who experienced the problem are in Europe and I'm European myself.

So again, we're really sorry about what happened and it wasn't done on purpose. The good news is it's now...
 

Symbian dismisses Google Android

50°
358w ago - Google's dominance of the web will not translate to the mobile phone market, a senior executive at Symbian has said.

John Forsyth, vice president of strategy at Symbian, the platform that powers many of the world's phones, said Google lacked experience.

Google has formed an alliance with 33 firms to develop an open platform for mobile phones, called Android.

Meanwhile, the head of Nokia in the UK said the firm was in discussions with Google about using the platform.

Simon Ainslie, Nokia UK's managing director, said: "We are always open to discussion and debate on that. We were not ready to make any commitment to it or discuss it at the time."

"We are having ongoing discussions with Google."

'Very happy'

Mr Ainslie said the time was not right to make any announcement as to "how we can work with them".

He also said that Nokia was very happy with its partnership with Symbian.

He said: "It's the world's most used platform. It's not a simple solution to make a platform work on a mobile."

Mr Forsyth said Google had to be aware that making a "mobile OS is a very specialised form of rocket science.

"It's not search rocket science."

He said the alliance was yet another attempt to launch...
