Sure the upcoming Move controller looks great but what if you want more than your arms to influence a game, like to be able to kick some dude in the head? Well with upcoming Kung-Fu Live you will be the star on screen thanks to “Freemotion technology” so know you can pull your groin attempting to kick the end of level boss in the kidney. Now I’m not trying to say that the Eye has the technology to be as good as what Natal is, but it’s interesting to see a game on PS3 using your body as the controller like Natal rather than just Move which is operated with your arms.

According to TheSixthAxis, they have reliable information that Team Ico is following in the footsteps of the God of War Collection that came to the PS3 by putting Ico and Shadow of the Colossus on blu-ray as well.
For now this is a complete rumor, but I do recall Ueda telling us that he was in talks with Sony to do the same thing sometime ago.
Now its time for a confession…Don’t think less of me…but I’ve never played either of these games before (bites knuckle). I know…I know…how could I call myself a gamer right? Well if this is true, I plan on correcting my error.
If you’ve downloaded the Green Day: Rock Band demo on PSN( or LIVE) a special image awaits you once you exit the demo. The teaser image is of Harmonix’s upcoming Rock Band 3. Besides the guitars and drum icons you’ll notice two new ones, multiple microphones and a key board icon. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what that means.
MTV Games general manager Scott Guthrie recently told MCV that the launch of Rock Band 3 will be a “significant upgrade” for the series. So much so that he believes MTV Games can take market share aware from Activision’s Guitar Hero with Rock Band 3.
The addition of a keyboard periphial sounds like Harmonix and MTV Games is really taking Rock Band and rythym games to a new level. The only problem is now I have to find room in my house for a keyboard.
Insomniac was widely rumored to go multi-platform, and it’s now official. They are working on an unnamed PS3/360 multiplatform to be published by EA and are planning both PS3/360 multiplatform releases and some PS3 exclusive releases in the future. See Ted Prices’s video announcement here.
This is in some ways similar to how Epic does both 360 exclusives and PS3/360 multiplatform releases.
Congratulations to Insomniac. Quality developers have choices, and I’m glad that Insomniac isn’t afraid to use them and get the most favorable arrangement that they can.
Resistance is awesome, Ratchet & Clank is even better, and I will almost surely buy whatever else they make of that quality, regardless of the platforms it ships on.
