Sony Shares Final Fantasy XIV PS3 Update - Interview, New Details

350°
137w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fabio Santana of Brazil has shared a fresh Final Fantasy XIV PS3 update today including an interview and new details below, as follows:

When it was first launched back in 2010, Final Fantasy XIV for PC was criticized by players and the media, and eventually the planned PS3 version was postponed. Since then, Square Enix decided to reshuffle the leading developers of the game, with Naoki Yoshida now acting as Director and Producer.

His challenge is to helm the 2.0 version of [Register or Login to view links], which is a re-imagination of the original release. It will mark a new beginning for the game when it gets launched this winter, coinciding with the release of the anticipated PS3 version.

The game was not ready to be demoed publicly at E3 this year, but we got a chance to see a brief live demo behind closed doors of the game still running on a PC. It featured lush visuals, with a richly detailed character running through a forest area with dense vegetation and impressive lighting effects passing through foliage.

It was something we definitely aren't used to see in an MMORPG. "Right now it's optimized for PC. We're about 50% into the development of the PS3 version, but it's pretty much how it's going to look on the console...
 

Sony Interviews EA Sports' David Rutter on FIFA 13 for PS3

137w ago - Sony Content Producer Simon Bramble has interviewed EA Sports' David Rutter today on FIFA 13 for PS3.

Below is the interview, to quote: With Euro 2012 getting underway and the latest version of the beautiful game on PlayStation 3 mesmerising crowds at E3 2012, it was the perfect time to catch up with EA SPORTS FIFA 13 producer David Rutter.

Here, he explains how this year's online offering is second to none.

Simon: How has FIFA Street impacted on FIFA 13?

David Rutter: The Precision Dribbling 2.0 - that's the glamorous name for it - did owe something to that game, yes. We were looking at improved dribbling overall as a big holistic feature, we wanted the ability to move in 360 degrees, we wanted fidelity of distance and we also wanted face angle.

That was a big thing for us, the ability to have the player's face pointing in the right direction no matter which way they're going.

After that was achieved it became obvious that another cool part of it would be the ability to take defenders on using skill moves.

We've had some skill moves in FIFA before, but the key lesson we learned from the FIFA Street guys was that level of immediate control on the ball. It was really fun, something we thought would fit in nicely...
 

The Art Of Arc The Lad - Arc The Lad III Debuts on PSN This Week

250°
137w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced today that Arc The Lad III debuts on PSN this week with some of the title's artwork displayed below.

To quote: It seems every gamer harbours a dream to get his game idea to come to life. The process for bringing a game concept to a console is long and littered with unending hazards.

How does it actually happen? When a designer comes up with a concept, it has to be original and exciting enough to get broad buy-in from a wide swath of staff. It also helps to have a license. And of course every game needs a compelling hook.

It's not an easy task. But once the idea gets green-lit and funded, the process leads the concept down a production line. Many team members' input and a "can't fail" divining light must lead it to fruition. The final concept is often significantly different than the creative director's original dream but usually it is the best fit for the product's viability.

Once you get a winning formula and a game sells an acceptable amount of units, the title gains momentum and takes a life of its own. A winning title can get a sequel or even a series...a designers' wet dream.

By this time, we're dealing with art. Examples are rare, but one that we've showcased is Arc the Lad....
