New Gran Turismo HD screens

Recent rumours point to this getting a (typical) Polyphony delay, with latest information suggesting a launch around next December; there’s no noise from Sony as of yet, but we’ll keep you informed. In the meantime check out these new shots of an incredibly detailed Subaru Impreza and its driver. You certainly cannot argue with Polyphony Digital’s dedication to accuracy, even if they do play tardy too often (where’s my GT4 Mobile?!)!

Quake 3 on Linux, on PS3

As you would expect, as intrepid PS3 owners experiment with the system’s Linux capability more and more of these types of applications are likely to appear.

This one shows the PC version of Quake 3: Arena being played through the Fedora Linux operating system on the PS3. Whilst the framerate is pretty much too slow for the game to be playable and the resolution is too small, it’s worth considering that this is all done just using the Cell processor. The RSX cannot be accessed by Linux based programmes. That should tell you just how powerful the Cell is on its own.

I can’t wait to see what other older applications these coders can get running, although I’m still awaiting the bits that could be put together into a comprehensive media centre.

Thanks ehandlr!

Virtua Overload

Well kind of anyway; Jeuxvideo.tv has new videos of the PS3 versions of Virtua Fighter 5 and Virtua Tennis 3. Away from the “Virtua” theme they also have a video of the upcoming, and apparently hugely disappointing, Sonic The Hedgehog.

Virtua Fighter 5

The first thing that stands out is that both Virtua titles look a lot better in movement than they do in the shots we have seen. Put mildly, they really stand out as with the best looking of next generation titles. Sonic, on the other hand, shows why the series is having problems in the 3D platform genre. I used to be a huge fan of the 2D game, but as this video shows things in 3D are completely confusing, particularly because of the camera and level design, neither of which seem to be sensible for a game involving a supersonic hedgehog. Graphically it falls far below the quality of the Virtua titles and as you can see, the person controlling Sonic gets into trouble at the same spot a couple of times.

Virtua Fighter 5 and Virtua Tennis 3 are due out in the Spring, Sonic is due out just before Christmas.

Simply follow the links to see what I mean:
