142w ago - Avalanche Software Senior Producer Jonathan Warner has made available a video today on Cars 2: The Video Game, which now officially supports PS3 3D and 4-player split-screen.
To quote: We're wrapping up production on Cars 2, and now we're excited to announce that Cars 2: The Video Game will be presented in 3D exclusively on the PS3.
We've worked very closely with Pixar to bring a cool Cars 2 game to life, and it's even more exciting to bring all of those great characters to life in a full 3D experience. Pixar has created such vibrant worlds that resonate so well with audiences that it seemed a natural extension to take the game to a 3D setting – just like the upcoming film.
What's more, our engineers were able to design a system that allows us to harness the power of the PS3 to display the game in four-player split screen in full 3D.
It made the PlayStation 3 the perfect choice for developing a 3D game. We're really looking forward to delivering a special racing game, and I hope you will enjoy playing it as much as we do!
The 3D aspect for the PS3 enables you to step into the game world and experience it the same way you will in a 3D-equipped theater. You'll get an extra visceral component to the...
195w ago - Today United Front Games Designer Mat Thomas has shared details, including hints of custom soundtracks coming, alongside a video dubbed ModNation Racers PS3: Bringing Back the Split-Screen.
To quote: There are two multiplayer experiences that we were keen to deliver in ModNation Racers.
First, there was the online race experience (up to 12 players), while the second was the couch racing experience.
It is hard to beat the multiplayer experience on the couch against friends - I think we can all remember this experience from other games we have enjoyed, and we were keen to make sure we delivered the same frantic experience for ModNation Racers.
We wanted to make sure we delivered two-player split-screen. From the start, we wanted our two-player split-screen to work online. ModNation Racers enables you and a friend to go online and play the game together.
This makes for intense competition and a lot of fun! Do you play together, helping each other out or do you take your friend out at every available opportunity? You can play action races and pure races together.
More importantly, two players can play together on any tracks developed by United Front Games or anyone online. It makes for an almost endless...
303w ago - Darren Waters of the BBC has confirmed that Motorstorm 2 will feature a four player split screen option, thus fixing one of the key missing features in the first game.
Waters goes on to mention the game is months away from completion, but the engine looks superb and the graphics as you'd expect were very impressive.
To quote: Here's what I was shown:
Motorstorm 2 is due out in time for Christmas and moves the action away from the desert locale of the original. Gamers will be able to race around a lush island environment, full of interactive vegetation.
The game will feature four-player split-screen action, righting one of the obvious failings of the first game.
The title is some months away from completion but the game's engine looked rock solid and the graphics were as impressive as one would expect from one of the best-looking racing franchises.
