Same old thing again? Yeah, but that doesn't stop anyone jizzing over the near-identical fighting game or mushroom racing game every twelve months.

quote of the day

As for PGR3, It's my first PGR so it rates a bit higher for me, also im shit at driving games whereas this gives me chance to progress and then increase my skills as I go, rather then being forced to "skill up" asap like many driving games. I do see why it would be like GT4 to GT3 though

Talha, I think it's obvious that the EG team expect the same petty complaints on a constant basis. The people making them keep coming back so it can't be as bad as the trolls make it out to be :)

Frankly a big plus of the site is the staff + contributor (thats not you comment-tards) humour, so I say bring on the silly news entries!

Sony CEO speaks out

sephy

Furthermore, the so-called HD era trumpeted by both MS and Sony is only of relevance to Japan, where most households are HD ready, and TV is already broadcast in both SD and HD format.
Next year World Cup will see the first big push for HD in Europe, but I'd say it'll be a good 10 years before HD is of any relevance in Europe, probably 5 in the States.


HD is already of relevance in the states. The have been broadcasting HDTV encoded for the last 2 years in the mainstream ...

No plans for Famicom Game Boy Micro in UK

sephy

13 years ago

I would assume that since Micro has not been released in Europe yet, they have no need to introduce the Famicom Edition, at least not so close to the launch of the machine. They will propably release it a bit later to generate more interest once the original "noise" has settled down.

Firstly, the micro launched in the uk on Friday

Secondly, it's not exactly been out long in the states either

Thirdly, Nintendo never do europe any favors, so I dont expect their attitude to change

Interview of the Colossus

sephy

13 years ago

A pal resolution does use more of the screen and more video-memory and translation can take a little while to do.

Don't see it taking 4 months though, so is it maybe marketing holding it from being released?

To be honest I'd rather niche games like this and Katamari be released in the "quiet periods" because it means they stand a better chance of doing so well like they deserve to.

Surely a team this important isn't sitting around just tweaking the PAL version of this!

makes a change!

Other then Hideo kojima, I can't recall a developer that spends time on the Pal version themself

Hey Sony, how about making PAL optimized (or 60Hz mode enabled) reissues of FFX, FFX-2, and all other suckworthy PAL conversions instead?

Well for a start sony have nothing to do with how square code their titles....

Secondly, make yourself of the technical details and you'll see why they are 50hz...

Talk of Mana for PS2 escalates

sephy

13 years ago

As for the Saga games, they are mostly numbered - saga for example:
Saga 1, saga 2, saga3
Romancing Saga, Romancing saga 2, romancing saga3 , romancing saga remake (ps2)
saga frontier, saga frontier 2
unlimited saga

Chronologically I doubt it matters as they all follow the jrpg tradition of not being direct sequals

mana would be a lot less confusing if people didn't insist on caling Seiken densetsu 3 "secret of mana 2". IT ISN'T! As far as I know though only Romancing Saga 1 has a remake

Europe getting PSP Giga Pack

sephy

I think we can assume this will be loaded with v2.50 firmware.

Selling it with v2 and a 65 saving (compared to todays value pack and a 1gb vs the giga pack) would just be asking for pirating

Seriously, this is one dirt cheap bundle considering seperately the value pack and 1gb stick cost 280 at retail

And why no MS4&5 bundle like in the states for us Europeans?

They seem to be wanting to maximise any profit they can get at the moment and the future isn't looking rosy for them - in Europe at least.
