E3 2010: ESPN3 Comes to Xbox Live

E3 2010: ESPN3 Comes to Xbox Live

ESPN recently relaunched their online sports portal, and Microsoft has announced that it will be comming to Xbox live. Trey Wingo and Josh Elliott (funny SportsCenter anaylsts) demonstrated the service on stage at E3, and featured Microsoft’s new Kinect controller support. 3,500 live sporting events, instant replays, highlights, polls all at your fingertips or by the sound of your voice. The PiP feature will be very similar to the what is provided at the website online, but the HD streaming and Kinect as a controller should give it an overall new feel.

**The service is no addition charge besides the usual requirement of Xbox Live Gold is present; However, you must have TV provider / ISP that’s signed up for the package. If not then you  have to pay extra to receive ESPN 3.

Check the list of ESPN3 affiliates to see if your ISP is playing ball.

11 June, 2008 PS3 2 comments

“We are working on some localization issues to integrate globally and it should be ready to roll out in the US shortly,” a Sony spokesperson told Patrick Klepek from the MTV’s multiplayerblog yesterday.

Soon in a few short weeks all of you who don’t have the SingStar game, will be able to still see video’s of me and my family acting a fool.

Could The “Steam Box” Be The PS3/PS4?

Could The “Steam Box” Be The PS3/PS4?

 

There’s been rumors as of late about a possible Steam-powered console.  While this is certainly plausible, it makes one wonder whether or not there’s room in the console market for yet another console.

Playstation Celebrates You

Remember that trailer that Sony released about a week ago?  Everyone and their mother’s dog was taking guesses at what it was and what it meant exactly.  that trailer released a few days ago got a considerable amount of traffic, nearly 2.4 million views on only a few days. Just several more thousand views and that makes it PlayStation’s most watched YouTube video on their YouTube channel. Well, the continuation to that trailer is out now and it turns out it’s a continuation of the Long Live Play marketing campaign.  Although it’s not the home revamp, XMB redesign,cross game chat, or Playstation Smash Bros it’s still pretty cool.

I’ve spotted

  • Nathan Drake – Uncharted Series
  • Lightning – Final Fantasy XIII and XII-2
  • Cole McGrath – Infamous series
  • Isaac Clarke – Dead Space
  • Ghost – MW2
  • Hitman guy forgot his name :P
  • Sweet tooth – Twisted Metal Series
  • Joe Mauer –  MLB The Show
  • Old/Solid Snake – Metal Gear Solid Series
  • Chell – Portal 2
  • Sackboy –  Little Big Planet Series
  • Athena & Kratos – God of War Series
  • Helghast Soldiers – Killzone Series
  • Chimera – Resistance Series
  • USC Football Player – NCAA Football
  • Omaha Soldiers – Medal of Honor Series/Call of Duty possibly
  • Bioshock Girl – Bioshock Series
  • Ezio – Assassin’s Creed Series

If you spot anything else leave a comment below.  Also i’m fairly sure that Nolan North who played Nathan Drake and David Hayter who played Old Snake in this short film reprise their roles.  The same goes for Cole McGrath, Athena, Ghost, and ISA Soldier, but i’m not sure.

Splinter Cell PS3 HD Trilogy Release Pushed Back

Splinter Cell PS3 HD Trilogy Release Pushed Back

Sony began the HD remakes of games at the God of War games and If you remember, that almost didn’t get made due to untold-of limitations but now Sony is cranking out a lot of classics on Blu-Ray with trophies, high-res textures, and much more in every bundle. For example, they released an HD remake bundle of the Sly series and most recently (this week), the Tomb Raider trilogy.

There was one HD trilogy remake that was also supposed to hit store shelves this week and that mysteriously never happened, and that is because it got pushed to June 21st, 2011 in a recent hasty announcement of the games delay. The trilogy contains HD remakes of the three games Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory on a single Blu-Ray disc and now fans that were anticipating it will have to wait a little while longer. It’s alright, because games like Crysis 2, Portal 2, and inFamous 2 will probably hold you over until then!

Developers, Stop Playing it Safe With Franchises & Use The “3 Game Rule”

Developers, Stop Playing it Safe With Franchises & Use The “3 Game Rule”

Many gamers hate it, the milking of a gaming franchise, especially if it’s their favorite franchises. Many developers, especially this generation are making sequel after sequel now, usually without any noticeable innovation, or just too many games year after year. Notice that many games are hitting title number 2 or title number 3 now, and as we’ve seen from many games (Grand Theft Auto, Final Fantasy), sequels aren’t bad under certain instances, but some developers just have to know when to call it quits. It’s simple, make three games in a franchise, then stop all development of that entire franchise, sounds like a daring move? It’s gonna be better for everyone in the long-run though, here’s why.
