Franchise Re-booted with New Development Teams, New Soldier, New Setting
Guildford, UK - December 2, 2009 - Medal of Honor™ returns to the front lines, this time in today's war. For the first time in the franchise's 10-year history, Medal of Honor is leaving the WWII theatre and putting players in war-torn Afghanistan.
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today revealed that in 2010, Medal of Honor, an all-new first-person shooter game, will introduce the Tier 1 Operator: a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle.
The development team has been working closely with Tier 1 Operators from the US Special Operations Community since the earliest stages of development to create...
212w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today on the PlayStation Blog discussing Super Street Fighter IV for PS3 with Capcom's Seth Killian.
To quote: Recently we were granted an hour to go hands on with the follow-up to Capcom's Street Fighter IV. You may have seen some shots of new character Juri, or the resurrected (and redesigned) DeeJay and T. Hawk. You can see them in action in the video below.
Beyond that, Capcom Senior Community Manager Seth Killian (a SF player so good he can beat you with one hand) walks us through some of the new features and moves we'll be seeing when Super Street Fighter IV drops in 2010.
Better yet, he promises to try and get hands on time for some of you readers (like last year's Street Fighter Club and game launch). Go on, watch.
219w ago - According to PCWorld (linked above), Toshiba will soon unveil its first television based on the Cell processor, the same multimedia chip that sits at the heart of the PlayStation 3 games console.
Toshiba has been showing prototypes of the television and Cell technology for the last couple of years and its unveiling on Oct. 5 will come just before its first public showing at the upcoming Ceatec electronics show.
While a launch date has not yet been announced, the timing of the unveiling suggests it should be on sale in Japan before the end of this year.
To quote: "The Cell chip was developed by Toshiba, IBM and Sony and each chip contains a single Power PC core and eight co-processors. Together the chips make heavy-duty processing of video a breeze.
During previous demonstrations of Cell TV prototypes, Toshiba has put the chip to use providing real-time upscaling of standard definition to a quality closer to that of high definition.
It has also been shown streaming multiple chapters from a recorded TV show to make navigating to a desired part of a program easy. It's similar to the multiscreen menus on some DVDs.
But for all the neat tricks it can do with video there's one thing it almost certainly won't do: run PlayStation 3 games. Toshiba has said several...
220w ago - Today Sony's Eric Lempel has clarified Justin Cooney of SCEA's statement from just before the weekend.
Cooney initially said that PSP Minis will drop WiFi Multiplayer, DLC and Software Update support.
However, speaking to Destructoid.com (linked above) Lempel reassured concerned users with the following statement, to quote:
"So you can patch Minis, but we won't have multiplayer functions in the beginning. Basically, to get these developers on board, and to make it easier to test and get it through the pipeline, we won't be allowing that functionality for the first stage of Minis.
It's something we will consider in the future, he added, referring to the posibility of game updates and multiplayer in future PSP Mini titles."
