The Road to E3 2011: Sony Report Card


During an investor call in Japan late last night, Sony confirmed they are working on a "future platform." Although few hard details were revealed about the platofrm, this is the first official mention from Sony of these plans.

When discussing an increase in research and development costs over the last quarter, Sony’s VP and CFO Masaru Kato said:

"For the home equipment the PS3 still has a product life, but this is a platform business, so for the future platform – when we’ll be introducing what product I cannot discuss that – but our development work is already under way, so the costs are incurred there.”

Kato said whatever Sony is working on will have a different kind of launch than the PS3. The losses they have suffered on the PlayStation 3 had to do with the price of semiconductors versus retail prices. Sony has since created its own semiconductor facilities, and this mean it is "no longer thinkable to have a huge initial financial investment like that of the PS3," according to Kato.

Modern Warfare 3 Cover Art Revealed?

Remember the huge Call of Duty: Modern Ware 3 leak from last week? Well Giant Bomb has received details about a company-wide e-mail that Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg sent out this morning regarding the leak that happened exactly a week ago on Kotaku. The e-mail details how the company handled the event internally and how they were able to turn what could have been absolutely disastrous into a strategic advantage.

"I wanted to reach out to you today and address the Call of Duty intellectual property leak that occurred last Friday," said Hirshberg, "Of course, Activision takes very seriously any abuse of our intellectual property – the event is under investigation and we’re confident it will be resolved quickly."

According to Giant Bomb the e-mail doesn't provide any details on where the leak came from but instead it goes on to say that while the leak did come a week before Activision's projected MW3 launch (that was supposed to culminate in a commercial during the NBA Finals) the company was able to spin it into a good thing.

NMH: Heroes' Paradise will have HD graphics and Move Support along with additional missions and bosses.

Will you be picking up No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise for the PS3 when it comes out? The PlayStation Move is kind of perfect for beam katana gameplay.

UPDATE: Now includes France, England and Germany Teaser trailers below!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has an official teaser trailer. Infinity Ward's FourZeroTwo released the video saying "Wasn’t planned, but you’re clearly hyped, so here is the 1st of many Modern Warfare 3 videos coming in hot today! #MW3" Details about the MW3 leaked so IW decided to release their trailer early. The video is only 35 seconds long and shows what looks like a missile hovering over New York Harbor.

If you're curious about the Russian at the end of the video, our source says it's a little tough to decipher but translates to  something like: "One (or someone) will destroy their hope of victory."

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

Join the Feedback crew next Wednesday as we welcome special industry guest Jesse Divnich! Jesse spends his days as vice-president at Electronic Entertainment Design and Research, thinking about the future and analyzing video game trends. At night, we imagine he plays a fair share of video games as well. He'll be our guest in-studio as we speculate and prognosticate on the industry. Want to chip in? You can! 

Ask us questions about the past, present and future of gaming, and we'll pose them to Jesse. Want to know if motion gaming is a fad or here to stay? We'll put it to him. Need the info on possible future hardware releases? He's your guy. Wondering about what the PlayStation Network outage might mean long-term for Sony? That's a softball. Kingdom Hearts 3 release date? He's probably not going to be able to field that one.

We'll think up some more questions, in addition to those, but we want your queries as well. This is Feedback after all, where we want to put you in the picture. Just hit us in the comments below, and look for your question to be read on-air next week!

It isn’t often that the games industry is rocked by two massive news stories in a week, but that’s precisely what went down over the past few days, and, boy, has it been a whirlwind. Not only are millions and millions of PlayStation 3 owners scrambling to ensure their identities aren’t stolen in the wake of last week’s attack on the PlayStation Network, but gamers everywhere are speculating furiously about what Nintendo’s newly confirmed Wii successor might be now that we know it’s going to be playable at E3 2011. Oh, and there just happens to be a little thing called the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta that a whole mess o’ folks are playing at the moment, so that’s on the discussion agenda as well.

It’s a full show, and to guide you through it all is your host Adam Sessler and our illustrious panel: Stephen Johnson, Michael Leffler, and Nikole Zivalich. Enjoy!

Preview: Child of Eden

Sorry, everyone-who-likes-awesome-stuff: Child of Eden has been delayed until September for the PlayStation Move. The Kinect version is still set to jump off on June 14, but PS3 users have gotten the proverbial shaft and will have to spend their summer waiting for the trippy, music based motion game.

"Why should I care about Child of Eden anyway?" you may be asking. I'll let this Child of Eden video explain it:

Gamescom 2010: Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One First Look Preview

Ratchet and Clank games have always been fun, but a game can't be super fun until you share it with your pals! Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One allows up to four players to cooperatively conquer the evil plans of a secret enemy but that's not all. See what we learned in our hands-on with the game, some of the preview is below:

"Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One isn't just about having four players that can each do their own thing. It's about co-op, co-op in the sense that everyone on your team has strengths, weaknesses, and a role to play when solving puzzles."

Read the rest of our Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One preview to uncover even more details!

Child of Eden's Corset Peripheral Revealed

Upcoming Move and Kinect-powered abstract game Child of Eden is the spiritual successor of PS2 classic Rez. Just as Rez had an inexplicable add-on peripheral (a vibrator timed to the music in the game), Child of Eden has an inexplicable attachment as well -- a vibrating corset.

According to Child of Eden's creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, speaking at Kapow! Comic Con, the CoE corset holds four  controllers, which all  vibrate in time to the music. Sounds...stimulating. Sadly, the corset will probably never leave the developer's office -- I seriously doubt Ubisoft would bankroll the production and release of such an esoteric device. We're left, instead, with a tantalizing vision of what could be: See photo above.

Tech Junkie

Gaming is nothing without the gear, and Tech Junkie takes video game tech, peripherals, add-ons, doo-dads, gizmos, and gadgets and puts it through the wringer. We'll tell you what we like and dislike, what's worth buying, and what you might want to pass on. One person's plastic junk is another gamer's treasure.

Rest assured, there are ways to get you gunning for it again. With Killzone 3, and the upcoming SOCOM 4 hitting the PS3, there's a battlefield there waiting for your plastic periphery. Sony has made it easier by providing both the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter and the PlayStation Move Shooting Attachment as add-ons for your Move. How do they stack up? Let's find out.

Tech Junkie: PlayStation Move Guns »

Morgan and Blair look fairly competent with their plastic gunslinging, but if you want to take a deeper look at these two peripherals, keep reading. Tech Junkie wades through all of the plastic periphery so you don't have to.

While sales of these new pieces of hardware seem successful, the question is do they enhance our gaming experience?

Learn All About Bomb Squad, SOCOM 4's New Multiplayer Mode

Sony continues its PlayStation 3 onslaught with the pending release of SOCOM 4 in April, but at GDC, we got some hands-on time with a brand new multiplayer mode, Bomb Squad. From our SOCOM 4 Bomb Squad preview:

The flow of the Bomb Squad gametype quickly becomes obvious, with different players defending the technician by taking on the roles they feel most comfortable with. Those who favor sniping (the bastards!) can hang  back and blow off heads from across the map, while more gung-ho gamers can surround Mr. Technician and put holes in people from close range with a shotgun.

Learn how it works and how it plays in our SOCOM 4 Bomb Squad preview.
