To quote: Have you ever put on a wedding or a huge party? A bunch of us are in working this weekend, but it's not just the normal bug fixing, polishing, and optimizing.
Today we're hanging art, arranging some furniture, and (shudder) cleaning up our offices. All of this is being done in preparation for the 60+ media members who will be flying up to Seattle on Monday for our "Media Day" event for inFAMOUS 2.
So you can think of this as our once-every-two-years chance to spruce up the place, and put on a little bit of a show.
So here's my Virtual Media Day for you guys, a blow-by-blow breakdown of what we're showing.
In the morning we'll be hosting all the international press members on a tour of our studios in Bellevue. We will hold out some hope for good weather so we can do some interviews and photos out on the deck.
We'll turn the visitors loose on the bustling metropolis that is Bellevue, Washington and start prepping for our afternoon show. South of the Mariners stadium, we'll be hosting an evening event...
260w ago - SCEA Santa Monica Producer Tsubasa Inaba writes: We have kept quiet for a while, but we bring you good news today. The world of echochrome expands again!
Inspired by the artistic works of M.C. Escher, echochrome with its' minimalist black and white graphics plays with your imagination. Echochrome plays with your mind.
Its' deceiving artwork delivers mind-bending puzzle solving. It also includes a custom level editor allowing the players to make and trade their own stages amongst friends, or even submit to the developer.
As a token of appreciation, we have put a video together, introducing all of the 1,000 stages that will be made available in this update. I'm sure you will love it!
Now that we've refreshed your memory on echochrome, it's time to deliver the good news! We know many of you have been asking for Trophy support. Well... echochrome will receive an update patch effective today. Yes, that's right.
The update patch for echochrome includes the long awaited trophy support. YAY! This is a great reason for many of you who already have echochrome to go back and play, and for those of you who haven't picked it up yet? Now is the time!
260w ago - Sony's Michael Denny has stated that the company is leading the way when it comes to user-generated content on console systems, following the evident success of titles such as LittleBigPlanet and SingStar.
In LittleBigPlanet alone, around 180,000 levels have already been created and in Buzz, over 100,000 quizzes have been created.
To quote: Sony's Michael Denny has said the company is at the forefront of realising user-generated content on home consoles, following the success of online titles LittleBigPlanet, Buzz and SingStar.
LittleBigPlanet users have created almost 180,000 levels, and played them over 22.4 million times online, according to Sony. Denny has also revealed that Buzz players have created over 100,000 quizzes for the game, which have been played over seven million times.
"I think if you look at Worldwide Studios heritage in Europe, we always - whether it's internally or externally - work on innovative new products," said Denny, in an exclusive interview published today.
"Although we've had the success in the social genre we want to move that on as well, like finding new experiences with LittleBigPlanet and user-generated content. In the console field that's an area we can rightly claim leadership to now. We want to look at more areas of that."
276w ago - LittleBigPlanet players will not be able to download levels created by players in other global territories, Sony confirmed to CVG.
During a presentation of the game at the Leipzig Games Convention today Sony's Pete Smith, who oversees operations at LBP developer Media Molecule, revealed that levels published on PSN by players will only be downloadable by people in the same region. So we'll not be able to download levels created by Japanese and US gamers.
The reason, he explained, is because each territory will have it's own dedicated server to which levels are uploaded.
"We've got regional servers," explained Smith. "But we can move levels around on servers whenever we want. But you won't have access to the Japanese servers," he added.
