PlayStation Move Review (including Video Review)

Introduction The PlayStation Move is Sony’s move in the “motion controller” arena going up against the entrenched Nintendo Wii and the upcoming camera-only based Kinect from Microsoft for the Xbox 360. We’ve put the PlayStation Move through it’s paces, making sure to try and focus on the controller’s functionality and not so much the video […]

Gran Turismo 5 Damage Model Details

For those of you familiar with Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, the for-pay demo for the incredible long-dev-cycle Gran Turismo 5, you remember that there was no damage model in that snapshot of the game; as beautiful as it was. Fortunately, Polyphony Digital never intended to leave out an extensive damage model from the Gran Turismo […]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Looks Excellent

With a God of War heritage and MercurySteam’s unexpected talent at creating graphical marvels, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is shaping up to look like a beautiful launch for October. My first interaction with MercurySteam’s was their work on developing Clive Barker’s Jericho. As much as I liked the story (I’m a horror fan) and was […]

Splatterhouse PS3 Screenshots

GameInfoWire got the dump of recent Splatterhouse PS3 screenshots and we are loving it – gore everywhere. It looks like Rick (the hulking main character) shows damage real-time in the form of actual crippling injuries to his body that we have to assume regenerate by some means or else he dies.

PS3 3D Firmware Update Coming this Summer

We postulated a few months ago that the PS3 would eventually win the console war with 3D and Motion Control while Microsoft was forced, earlier than 2015, to do another hardware cycle to stay caught up with the powerful PS3 platform. Not more than 2 months later some slides with 2010 3D plans for the […]

Sony PS3 Will Deliver 3D Experience After All

We speculated back in August that the stars were starting to align for Sony around a Motion-controlled/3D future for the PS3. Our confidence in this fact centered around the recent motion-controlled demonstration that Sony gave for the PS3 at E3. Combined with the never-used EyeToy camera, what Sony was showing off looked comparable, if not […]

CryEngine 3 PS3 Tech Demo

This is more of an aside, but Crytek’s Cevat Yerli shows off a demonstration of the upcoming (September ’09 release) CryEngine 3 and I’m floored. The enhancements that Crytek have gotten into CryEngine 3 are nothing short of amazing, specifically on the PS3. Cevat explains that over the years they have had two R&D engine […]

Andrew Burnes over at VE3D has thrown up 26mins of Left 4 Dead gameplay video from the demo. I found the following bit of gameplay the most representative of the environments, scenarios and team-dynamic going on in that title: I’ll admit, the first time I saw Left 4 Dead demoed (maybe a year ago?) I […]
