    Japan First Day Sales 12/10 (Tales of Graces and other games)

    in Sales Discussion on 11 December 2009

    Tres - Not all PS3 games are 60, only a few AAA are, which cost more into the 30 mil range to develop. As for Wii games, most sell for 50 as well. $50 is the average for all games, cross platform. Don't believe me? Go to your retailers nearby and have a look at the shelf price. You really should just shut your mouth instead of trying to accuse people when you don't have any idea what you're...

    Japan First Day Sales 12/10 (Tales of Graces and other games)

    in Sales Discussion on 11 December 2009

    cord - on cel shading, the models/polys are fully rendered, and then after effects are applied for the shading, so its only a change in texture type, not actual modeling. Sure, you can get away with less modeling, but an art director isnt going to suggest that. If youve ever dealt with an art director for a game, you'll know how intense they can be, with tendency to overdo things. Also, I did go...

The last I can recal was the Power Pad on the NES.2 - Sure, there are a handful that have broke through the 1 mil copies sold, but nonetheless, it doesn't change the fact that the motion controls in the Wii brought about a new advent in gaming3...

I had the chance to attend a conference on music composition, presented by Akira Yamaoka at Game Developer Conference in I think 2007. Translators were there, as he doesn't speak much...

    EA leaks name of PS3 wand - "Gem"

    in Sony Discussion on 10 December 2009

    @NJ - Yup, as said, the system for the nunchuck will keep Sony or MS from being able to make a handheld thumbstick system anywhere near similar, which is what Sony is trying to find a way around. It seems that the business Sony is trying to provide, since it already has a core audience, is to use the Gem as a method of drawing in the casual crowd. Listening/reading to their press conferences...

    ^^ On LBP, yes I agree, there was a huge community input for level design. But can you take that crown away from Quake 3 Arena? It resulted in an entirely separate design program that became an industry staple (Radiant/GTK Radiant). I would feel confident to state that the Quake 3 Arena community was/is much larger than the LBP community.On World of Goo, there were 2 iterations of the game before...

    @makingmusic - I dont meant to cherrypick your post, Im in a rush =)Assasin's Creed really is not much more than Thief redone and made more violent, so the concept for AC is over 10-15 years old. LBP didn't really bring anything to the table other than a level editor, which is no new concept in gaming, in fact there's an internal argument that LBP stole physics ideas from World of Goo, its hard...

    This could be Sony's PS3 WAND Motion Controller

    in Sony Discussion on 10 December 2009

    NJ5 said: bardicverse said:Nice idea, the person who thought it up should be a member of Sony's HW division. Unfortunately, the design would be very pricey per controller. as the light illumination /tracking on both parts of the controls would easily put the controller over $100. Also, a thumb stick where the action buttons are (X, O, etc) would be extremely ineffective. If they...
