210w ago - BioWare has revealed an aim to do all PS3 development in-house from now onward.
This news follows the good experience it had from working on the console version of Dragon Age: Origins for the PlayStation 3.
To quote: "We think it's one of the key platforms, obviously, so we're definitely going to be doing PS3," BioWare final boss Greg Zeschuk told JoyStiq when asked whether the studio would take control of PS3 development itself.
You know, I can't say anything about Mass Effect in that regard but you know, I can definitely say Dragon Age and other things we do will definitely be on PS3."
211w ago - Update: DriverHeaven.net has now received clarification on this from IBM, to quote: "only one CPU development cycle is being 'halted' which is the successor to the current PowerXCell-8i cpu. IBM have said they are planning to work on other CPU's in the Cell Processor 'family'."
Today PlayStationUniversity.com (linked above) is reporting that IBM's Vice President David Turekannounced that Cell processor development will be phased out.
Apparently the planned 32 SPE Cell processor will not be made, and their current PowerXCell 8i will be the company's last entrance in the technology.
To quote: "The Cell Processor was originally the brain child of 'The Father of PlayStation' Ken Kutaragi. It was later co-developed by Sony, IBM and Toshiba; making its way into the PlayStation 3, TV's and super computers.
So what does this mean for Sony and the PlayStation 4? Will this change with IBM pulling out of their own development?
Not necessarily. Sony can still hire IBM to create a Cell Processor for their next console, without IBM being involved in their own internal development outside of the...
214w ago - A few weeks ago Amy Hennighinted that an Uncharted 3 PS3 game may be in the works.
Today the Official PlayStation Magazine (OPM) has added credence to her interview hinting that the game is indeed in the early stages of development.
To quote: In the latest Official PlayStation Magazine (December 2009, UK version), in the latest 'The Big 10' section, the guys over at OPM have asked Uncharted 2 Multiplayer designer Justin Richmond 'How do you top Uncharted 2?'. The answer, well it seems to all-but confirm that early work has begun on the sequel;
"Haha! More of it." he said "The guys back at the office are already starting to look at optimising the engine, getting more stuff on screen - all the stuff that we've done in this project that we could do better with."
216w ago - Update: As expected, Eurogamer reports that Sony has declined to comment on rumours that Killzone 3 is "deep in development" and will be released next year.
It appears the latest issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine hints that Killzone 3 is "deep in development" for PS3 and readying itself for 2010, alongside a follow up to Call Of Duty: World At War from Treyarch and Resistance 3.
If Killzone 3 were to launch in late 2010, it would be an approximate 18 month turn-around for Guerilla, certainly not out of the realms of possibility with the engine already complete.
To quote: While reading a copy of PlayStation: The Official Magazine (December 2009) issue that was sent to my mail, something really seemed to catch my eye. On page 20 of the magazine there is an article titled "The Secret Games of 2010″ and it just so happens to speak of Killzone 3.
"Insider slips reveal three big names you can already pencil for the next year. Killzone 3 is reportedly deep in development, Insomniac's Full Moon Show podcast hints at a project we can only conclude is Resistance 3, and a Treyarch employee's online mentions a Call of Duty: World at War sequel."
217w ago - Although Sucker Punch hasn't responded to this yet, it appears work is already underway on an inFamous sequel for Sony's PS3 console.
Speaking on his Twitter page, David Sullivan today confirmed (now removed) the existence of inFamous 2, with Cole being recast.
To quote: "First voiceover/motion capture audition today for a video game. Re-casting of Cole in the sequel of Infamous. "I'll melt your face."
Actress Yvette Nicole Brown (who voiced Moya) later responded to Sullivan, claiming he "would be awesome as Cole".
With voice-over auditions currently going on, the game won't be released or shown for quite some time. The question that will sit in the mind of gamers now will be when and where will Sony and Sucker Punch showoff the inFamous sequel.
