Sony Ditches UMD, Classic Titles to See Digital Re-Release

200°
273w ago - Sony's rumored plans for a new PSP dubbed the PSP Go! may also usher in a new wave of games becoming digital downloads for the device.

To quote: That includes, allegedly, the long-awaited arrival of Gran Turismo Mobile.

According to 1UP's report on the PSP-4000/PSP Go!, Sony will be releasing about 100 new and classic PSP games in downloadable form on the PlayStation Store when the new PSP launches. 1UP even writes that Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo Mobile is "said to be one of the premier launch titles."

Announced in 2004, there's been little mention of the portable racing simulator, with Polyphony boss Kazunori Yamauchi saying the title was still "moving forward" last November.

With two alleged storage options available (8GB and 16GB), future PSP owners may have to budget their internal storage space wisely, unless Sony has something clever planned for managing all those downloads.

1UP says it expects Sony to announce the new hardware at E3, just mere weeks away. Keep an eye peeled.

To quote: A bill modeled after the [Register or Login to view links] in the U.S. was introduced in Canada last year but died before it could be passed when the government called an election.

Among the changes called for by the ESAC is the right for the [Register or Login to view links] - what used to be called Customs - to seize goods they know to be pirated, something they cannot currently do without a court order, as well as stronger penalties, including jail time, for intellectual property crime and the outlawing of mod chips.

Team Bondi Seeking More Talent for L.A. Noire Production

50°
275w ago - Every time we see the title "L.A. Noire" in the news, we always tense up in anticipation of bad news. After all, this is a project that seems to have struggled through a lengthy development process, and there was even talk of a cancellation at some point.

But as Joystiq pointed out, the latest update should be considered encouraging. Team Bondi (also responsible for The Getaway) is [Register or Login to view links] for plenty of talented individuals to join the team, perhaps in an attempt to push through the final stages.

They're looking for everything from animators to artists to coders to designers, so if you think you've got the skills, perhaps you'd like to apply. If not, and you're merely looking for good news concerning L.A. Noire, then you should be somewhat satisfied. Although we'd like to assume that development has reached a critical stage, we still have no official update on the team's progress.

Our last update said the game would be about a year away, and that was last fall; September, to be exact. Therefore, E3 may be the time when Rockstar announces a concrete release date for this long-awaited crime thriller, and if that happens, it'll be big news indeed.

Anyway, we'll let you know if there's any movement on the L.A. Noire front; at this point,...
