RUIN Brings Social Action-RPGs to PS Vita and PlayStation 3

50°
171w ago - SCEA Senior Producer Travis Williams has shared details on RUIN today, which will be bringing Social Action-RPGs to both PS Vita and the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: "I have a great idea for a game..." If you only knew how many times producers hear those words it would honestly amaze you.

We hear them all the time and we have to try our best to get excited about the words that follow that phrase. When we ([Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links]) stopped building PAIN expansions those words were music to my ears... Okay, what's next?

When I started working in games 20 years ago, I worked as an RPG designer/tester. So when we decided to make a social action-role-playing game you KNOW I was on board. When the decision was made to make it a PS Vita product I got even more excited.

Even among the nerds here in San Diego Studios I am branded nerdy. So making a game based in fantasy is right where I want to be. RUIN (Working Title) will be that fast-paced action-RPG that I have wanted to build since I first played old-school action-RPGs.

There will be some unique differences. Social networks and constant net connections make your victories (and losses) more public. The...
 

Eufloria Pollinates PSN in June, Ambient RTS Action Evolves

50°
178w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America's Product Evaluator Nick Suttner has announced today that Eufloria will be pollinating PSN in June, showcasing the evolution of ambient RTS action!

To quote: Myself and a group of other SCEA folk are busy ramping up our Pub Fund program, helping independent developers to bring their games to PSN without the restraints of a traditional publisher.

There are no specific criteria, outside of selecting games that we think are interesting and that we're dying to play ourselves: Joe Danger, Hoard, Explodemon! and Tales From Space: About a Blob are recent examples that came to fruition with the aid of our program.

We have a RIDICULOUSLY KILLER slate of titles lined up for the future, and we're going to try and do a better job of giving you guys a heads-up about them so that you can share in our excitement, and hopefully help support the developers who are trying to do things a little differently.

And that brings us to [Register or Login to view links], which we're thrilled to announce as our next Pub Fund title! [Register or Login to view links] are hard at work wrapping up a gorgeous new PS3 iteration of their ambient real-time strategy game, scheduled to hit the PlayStation Store in the latter half of June...
 

Sony Files Motion to Dismiss PS3 Other OS Class Action Lawsuit

800°
180w ago - Update: [Register or Login to view links] now reports that a federal judge has dismissed (PDF) the remaining claim by class who said Sony reneged on its promise to let PlayStation 3 video game consoles function as computers.

Similar to their previous request, Sony has now filed a motion to dismiss the PS3 Other OS Class Action Lawsuit.

To quote from Groklaw (linked above): There's news from the class action litigation, In re Sony PS3 'Other OS' Litigation, where the plaintiffs are suing Sony Computer Entertainment America for removing OtherOS from PlayStation 3s.

SCEA has filed another motion to dismiss the class action case, once again saying that the plaintiffs' newly filed First Amended Complaint is insufficient to state a claim. The original complaint's claims, except for one, were dismissed, with the judge giving the plaintiffs a chance to refile. Now that they have, SCEA says this refiled complaint should...

192w ago - Update #5: According to [Register or Login to view links] via [Register or Login to view links], GeoHot and Sony now share same charge as a result of a PS3 OtherOS class-action lawsuit.

To quote: "One of Sony's defenses is rather interesting, as the company claims that it had no way of knowing gamers who bought the hardware would want to use these functions for the life of the system, and the multiple warranties and Terms of Service all said that Sony had the right to remove functions from the hardware."

Update #4: The latest documents reveal Judge Susan Illston has denied Sony's request for expedited discovery, essentially meaning Sony can't send out the subpoenas to other PS3 hackers mentioned previously, however, [Register or Login to view links] reports Sony is now preparing to inspect GeoHot's hard drive.

Update #3: [Register or Login to view links]...
