164w ago - Today Producer Jason Villa has shared an MLB 10: The Show PS3 video predicting the Giants in 7 for baseball fans.
To quote: With the World Series ready to get underway, we're here to predict the winner of this year's Fall Classic using the most realistic baseball game on the market, MLB 10: The Show.
We simulated the match-up between the Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants, and are excited to see that a seven-game classic is in our future. Here's a quick video rundown of the series:
Much as they did against the Yankees, Texas jumped to an early lead in Game 1 and then blew it open against the Giants bullpen. After San Francisco bounced back to take Game 2 easily, the series moved to Arlington for a pivotal Game 3.
Texas battled back from a 4-0 deficit to lead 5-4 in the ninth, but Aubrey Huff hit a two-run homer off Neftali Feliz and the Giants seized control of the series with a 7-5 win. A 6-3 triumph in Game 4 extended the Giants' lead three-games to one, but Cliff Lee continued to be an almost unhittable force in the postseason for the Rangers, throwing eight innings of six-hit ball...
225w ago - An executive at Electronic Arts has stated that he expects to see a PlayStation 3.5 before the PlayStation 4 console's arrival.
Additionally, he expects the next version of the Xbox 360 to go 'half way' as well at Xbox 560 versus 720.
To quote: Rich Hilleman, Chief Creative Officer at EA, said: "I expect we'll see a PlayStation 3.5 before we see a PlayStation 4, and an Xbox 560 before we see an Xbox 720."
Hilleman's comments - made at a recent gaming event in the US, according to website Venturebeat - suggest that Sony and Microsoft will try to update their consoles in stages, rather than replace existing models with brand new ones.
The incorporation of motion-capture gaming is likely to drive this process. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer recently suggested the company's 'Project Natal' motion-capture system will debut next year in a new Xbox 360.
234w ago - Gaming analyst Michael Pachter has briefly mentioned the days of a 1TB Project Natal 'new' Xbox 360.
He noted he does not see the timing of new releases and digital downloads being a function of anything other than hard drive sizes.
To quote: Industry analysts have identified the limited storage space of the current Xbox 360 range as a major feature holding the tech back right now, particularly with the rapid developments in movies and games on demand services via Xbox Live.
"I don't see the timing between new release and digital download being a function of anything other than hard drive sizes," analyst Michael Pachter told GamesIndustry.biz.
"I think as soon as we have large hard drives - think the rumoured Project Natal 'new' Xbox 360 with a terabyte of storage in 2010 - we'll have day-and-date downloads."
253w ago - With the recent boom in iPhone applications, it's no surprise that EA's UK marketing director has spoken of the firm's admiration for iPhone and iPod Touch as games consoles - and discussed whether they can rival DS and PSP.
To quote: Stuart Lang told CasualGaming.biz that the publisher feels it can 'shine' on the platform, by dedicating time and investment into first-party development.
He said: "We are very excited to be a part of this new platform and believe that this passion, combined with our development talent and some of the best entertainment intellectual property in the world, will enable us to shine in this environment."
The firm has seen particular success on the format with Spore Origins, which was awarded Editor's Choice from IGN and maintains a four star rating from Apple Users on the company's App Store.
Other popular titles from EA on iPod Touch include Scrabble and Tetris.
Lang went on to add: "Spore Origins uses the iPhone accelerometer, Scrabble leverages the touch feature and Tetris uses the touch feature. Our games that have been previously announced but not yet launched will also take advantage of these unique capabilities.
