MTV Tours the Impressive EA Sports PlayStation Home Space

50°
304w ago - MTV recently toured EA Sports upcoming PlayStation Home Space. To quote:

The Sports Complex is an EA Sports shrine and gaming center. It is still being built, scheduled for a partial April opening. By the time it is launched, two of a planned three games will be available within it: racing and poker, with a golf game to follow.

What you see in this post is what the Sports Complex will get you, for free, through Home. But what's hard to see is how it works. An EA rep walked me through it.

The most important thing to note for Home skeptics is that EA is trying to make boredom in this virtual place impossible. The space is designed to keep as many as 70 people busy with something, though Sony's 'Home' service starts pulling people into duplicate 'instances' of its regions once about 50 people are in it.

The 70 or so stations are spread across the gaming activities and other hangout areas. For example, there will be eight golf stations, accommodating two groups of four people. There are three tiers of poker tables, each seating up to eight players, with slots for other 'Home' users to secure a spot in the next round.

336w ago - Update: The Official Web site of Digital Extremes, better known as the developer who brought us Dark Sector but who are also helping in the BioShock port, displays the very same box art. This must at least be confirmation that Home will be out before BioShock releases in October.

On Monday, SpikeTV are set to reveal BioShock PS3 goodness, making us unconventionally excited about what most would call a "port." But hey, one of last year's most critically acclaimed games is meeting an entirely new audience. A glance at the box art reveals another reason for PS3 owners to get excited.

On his very own blog, Geoff Keighly hints at what will be in store for BioShock fans this Monday;

Another game set to debut on the show is BioShock PLAYSTATION 3. Now I know what you're thinking...'why are you guys making a big deal out of a port?' Well I can't spoil the surprise just yet, but let me tell you there is way more to this game than you might think. There have been hints about some "exclusive features" in the game and on Monday night I'll finally reveal the details on Spike - and of course show you the first real gameplay footage from the PS3 version.

So what could this exclusive content be? For a start we know...

355w ago - A "zero-emission" sports car with a top speed of nearly 100mph is set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

The hydrogen-powered Lifecar, based on the design of the Morgan Aero-8 roadster, produces little noise and only water vapour from its exhaust.

The lightweight model packs advanced fuel cells and an energy storage system that gives the car a range of 250 miles (400km) per tank of hydrogen.

It has been developed by a consortium of UK companies and universities.

"Figures suggest the car should be capable of doing 0-60 [miles per hour] in about seven seconds," Matthew Parkin of classic sports car manufacturer Morgan told BBC News.

However, the exact acceleration will not be known until the complete car is taken for its first test drive.

"It's nearly there and the plan is to drive it when the show is over," said Mr Parkin.

Clever power

The £1.9m project to build the Lifecar, part funded by the UK government, has taken nearly three years.

"The basic concept was to build an entertaining and fun sports car that would act as a showcase for the technology and would deliver 150 miles to the gallon," said Mr Parkin.

"Everything else has tumbled out from that."
