130w ago - SCEE Senior Producer Mark Green has shared some videos today spotlighting TV Superstars for PlayStation 3: Behind The Scenes.
To quote: Behind the facade of celebrity is where the real work begins: TV Superstars was created specifically for the new Move controllers and the PlayStation Eye.
In these 'Making of TV Superstars' videos you can go behind the scenes with the development team to see just how they made the game.
In the first video the team talk about the design considerations behind making a Move game; what worked well and what was changed.
In the second video, the team discuss their inspiration for the game and the mechanics of how you can become the ultimate TV Superstar, and in the third and final video, the developers talk about the way in which the game captures your facial likeness and shout-out and presents you as an avatar in game.
To quote: As most of you already know, there is a 4GB file limitation imposed by FAT32 hard drives. When using an external hard drive and trying to copy certain games with large files, problems may occur.

The method currently supports Open Manager and Gaia Manager. Also make sure to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile before using PS3Splitter.
