Is the 3DS Nintendo's Key to Thwarting Pirates?

07/10/2010 Is the 3DS Nintendo's Key to Thwarting Pirates? With the advent of the internet, copyright infringing piracy has gotten exponentially worse on all fronts- gaming included. For whatever reason, be it the ease with which it's done or the lack of effective anti-piracy measures, no systems have been hit harder than the DS and PSP. While the PSP requires potential pirates to undertake a long and often complex process to install custom firmware that allows cracked games to be played, with the DS it's as simple as ordering an R4 on the internet and plugging it into the back of the system like any other DS cartridge. There's no doubt that Sony's next handheld, whether it's the PSP2, the Playview, or something else, will have stringent anti-piracy protection. Nintendo's already made strides to stop DS piracy with measures included in the DSi to block flash carts, and with the launch of the 3DS approaching, piracy has got to be on Nintendo's collective minds. According to THQ's executive VP of global publishing Ian Curran, they've solved the problem for good this time. Read his comments after the break.

Patapon 3 getting a multiplayer demo next week

Patapon 3 getting a multiplayer demo next week screenshot

PATA PATA PON PATA! Shouts Patapon continue to pursue their dreams. They are a bunch of little creatures of evil, of course, but they 're my evil little creatures. They defile for me, not for anyone else. Plus, some of them look like angry rabbits, and that's pretty darn cool.

I'm excited to check out Patapon 3, as I'm sure a handful of you are too. We're getting our chance on Tuesday! Just narrowly missing the long weekend is a multiplayer demo, which will be the game's first big outing since being briefly announced at E3 only to never be mentioned again -- until now, obviously.

I don't look forward to the inevitable firmware update needed to download this, but I'll stomach it.

Sony has 'no plans' for 3D PSP

06/25/2010 Sony has 'no plans to' for 3D PSP

Sony has 'no plans' for 3D PSP screenshot

Sony has demonstrated that it will happily and shamelessly copy Nintendo if something proves to be successful, and with the huge fan reaction to the 3DS, you'd think the company was busy beavering away at its own 3D version of the PSP. According to the company, however, that's not on the cards.

"No, no plans for that," says SCE Worldwide Studios VP Scott Rohde. "We just chose to focus on the big 3D in the home. Again as you pointed out, as a larger corporate initiative, it's important to us to push that out there and be on the bleeding edge of it. That's the focus..."

Yeah, Sony says this now, but Sony also had no plans to put last-gen rumble in its controllers or bring out a waggle wand, and look what happened. If the 3DS becomes the mega hit I'm certain it'll be, don't be surprised for Sony to pretend it never cast doubt on 3D handhelds and bring out a 3D PSP.

New Yakuza title for PS3 currently in development

This week's Famitsu has hit the stands and an interview with Toshihiro Nagoshi has revealed that the Yakuza team are hard at work on two new games for the series. While we were already aware of a PSP game starring new character, Nagoshi has also made mention of a title for PS3 which is being developed simultaneously.

The game, unnamed as of this point, will feature Goro Majima as a "playable character" which might lead some to suspect that there may be additional characters to play as. Nagoshi also suggested that the game might show something of a departure for the series saying the team, "will be taking a scalpel to the fundamentals of the game systems."

Awesome. Now all we need are for people in the US to buy lots of copies of Yakuza 4 when it comes here next year so that I'll be able to play this thing. Make it happen, people.

Opinion: The Culture Scapegoat: The Real Reason Ad-Hoc Doesn't Work in the West

06/23/2010 Opinion: The Culture Scapegoat: The Real Reason Ad-Hoc Doesn't Work in the West

Do Western gamers despise the very sight of one another? This a question that has been raised, with less hyperbole, by journalists and gaming executives trying to understand why ad-hoc play is so unappealing in the West. Local, wireless, on-the-go multiplayer made Monster Hunter's PSP versions into multi-million sellers in Japan, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for PSP's similar gameplay comes with the hope of capitalizing on that success. And considering how poorly the ...
