Microids Urge Fans to Support Syberia 3 on Sony's PS3 Console

50°
288w ago - Today Emmanuel Olivier, president of the team behind Syberia, has launched an SOS to all fans of the Syberia franchise to bring the game to the PS3 console.

They want you to help rally Sony to support the independent creation, and convince Sony to change its rules and allow Syberia 3 to hit the PS3.

Press Release: RETURNS ON THE SYBERIA 3 ANNOUNCEMENT

April 17, 2009 - Following the countless messages and questions from fans which followed our announcement on April 1st regarding the launch of Syberia 3, Emmanuel Olivier, President of Microïds, gives more details on that announcement.

"Syberia 3 is not an April Fool's joke. The game is highly expected by the community of fans of adventure games and fans of Kate Walker and it will be launched, it is one of our most strategic projects at Microïds and we have been anticipating it for a long time.

It will be released on PC for sure, however, on PS3, this could actually turn into an April Fool's joke because SONY is the only decision-maker on this point, as strange as it may seem to some people.

Benoît Sokal, the author of Syberia and Syberia 2, has mentioned several times in the press that he would only participate in a sequel to his masterpiece if he had enough financial means to design and develop...
 

Rumor: Is GameStop Scamming Killzone 2 PS3 Fans?

250°
294w ago - The Examiner seems to think that GameStop employees are scamming in Killzone 2 and have piled up the 'evidence'.

Apparently, they are selling 'defective' units and not offering refunds as the game has been opened and are only offering to buy it back.

To quote: Derek returns to GameStop the next day (Wednesday) to exchange his disc. After explaining why he wants an exchange, the cashier tells Derek that an Internet connection issue has nothing to do with the disc and that it's likely a problem with the PS3 or his Internet Service Provider. Derek explains that it didn't work on his friend's PS3 either, which the GameStop employee called "a coincidence".

Derek is told that the only thing they can do since the game is opened and is, from their judgment, not defective is to buy it back. They weren't offering any replacements unless he wanted to wait an extra week for their next shipment. Derek's choices are to keep the game or sell it back to GameStop. Believing the game to be broken and not wanting to wait, he sells the game back.

Derek's friend kept his game, which magically started working the day of the Official launch. Derek hoped he could get his game back from GameStop after he explained the situation, but they just weren't having it.

GameStop's stance was that...
 

Should PS3 And PC Fans Be Jealous of Exclusive GTA IV DLC?

250°
300w ago - As a follow-up to today's earlier [Register or Login to view links], we all know the initial [Register or Login to view links] is out. The 360 only DLC for GTA IV ('Lost and the Damned') is looking capital 'A' awesome.

Great news for some of us, but where does that leave our beloved Sony console?

This is what DLC is supposed to be! Rockstar, who over the last decade have consistently stood at the tip of the gaming spear as it thrusts ever forward into bolder and broader areas, has yet again delivered a landmark moment in the evolution of our gaming culture.

Since Microsoft introduced us to the concept of DLC, we have watched in horror as it has again and again become nought but an upwardly turned middle finger, used by greedy publishers to sodomise their loyal fans (case in point: Oblivion's Horse Armour). But The Lost and Damned, the first of two Xbox 360 exclusive downloadable episodes for GTA IV, is the perfect example of DLC done right.

This is not a Knothole Island, or a Shivering Isles where you stay as the same character and merely explore more of the same world, from the same perspective. So much of what GTA is, is driven by the character...
 

Video: Insomniac Games Opens its Doors for Fans

50°
310w ago - PS Blog's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein shared some recent event video footage courtesy of Resistance 2 developer Insomniac Games today.

To quote: With a couple of fan-based events last week, the Burbank-based developers renewed their relationship with their biggest fans.

Just a few days ago, Insomniac threw open their doors to the whole of Southern California, and close to 200 members of the Insomniac community took the day off work or school and trekked into the valley for a full day of gaming, autograph schwag sessions, and an inside look at how they made Resistance 2.

If you weren't able to make it - here's what you missed:




 

Free Radical asking fans where they want TimeSplitters 4?

50°
318w ago - TimeSplitters 4 could truly end up on any console. The previous TimeSplitters title ended up on the Xbox, PS2, and GameCube, so it is more than likely that Free Radical will follow up with a 360, PS3, and Wii release for TimeSplitters 4.

However, Free Radical wants to know what the fans are interested in - A poll is up and running on the company's Web site and is asking which console people wish to play the next TimeSplitters game on.

As of the time of writing, the Wii is leading the poll with 65% while the PS3 and 360 are trailing with about 15% each.

This poll could end up as being superfluous if Free Radical makes the decision to release TimeSplitters 4 on all platforms, but it would be interesting to know if the results will influence the development of the game in one way or another.
