59w ago - Activision Lead Producer Andy Owen has outlined what it takes to create authentic universes in Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse today.
To quote: Making a licensed game is hard. Making a good licensed game is hard.
As huge Family Guy fans, when the opportunity came to make a game based on the hilarious TV show, with Heavy Iron Studios at the helm, it was impossible to pass up.
But there was one giant hurdle we had to get over in order to make a good Family Guy game - we don't work at Fuzzy Door, Seth MacFarlane's production company, and we aren't involved in any way with the Family Guy TV show.
And it wouldn't matter how much effort we put into the graphics, or the level design, or the action. If it didn't feel like Family Guy - if it wasn't funny, or if Stewie shouted "Blast!" and it was clear we'd just hired some actor to do a mediocre Stewie impression - fans would hate it.

165w ago - Today Senior Vice President Peter Dille of Marketing and PlayStation Network has shared a new video featuring Kevin Butler called PlayStation Move: It Only Does Family Showdowns.
To quote: It has been more than two weeks since the launch of PlayStation Move here in North America and we're blown away by the fantastic reception we've received from avid gamers, new gamers, the press and retailers.
Positive reviews continue to pour in for PlayStation Move, with one critic labeling it "the pinnacle of motion-sensing technology" and and another crediting it with going "further than any other system to date in bridging the physical and virtual worlds."
By now you've hopefully gotten your hands on PlayStation Move and have seen Kevin Butler's big "move-in" with the Maguire family.
With a few weeks under their belts, the family raises the stakes with a little friendly competition on Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11. EA Sports has done a fantastic job highlighting the incredible precision of PlayStation Move with a game that the Wall Street Journal recently pointed to as being one of the best justifications for getting your hands on a PlayStation Move.
