posted by adminadmin 2824 days, 5 hours, 23 minutes ago
Monday, October 26, 2009 9:18:51 PM GMT
Unity Technologies, the San Francisco company behind the eponymous multi-platform game development platform, has now closed its first round of funding. The Series A financing was led by Sequoia Capital like we reported last week and apparently also included some Silicon Valley notables like David Gardner, the CEO of Atari, and Diane Greene, founder and former CEO of VMware. Unity combines a development platform with a 3D game engine in a software package that enables high performance 3D interactive con... (more)

Verizon: iDon’t Not Want The iPhone

posted by adminadmin 2824 days, 5 hours, 25 minutes ago
Monday, October 26, 2009 9:16:23 PM GMT
Late last night, I spent 1,500 words explaining why Verizon’s Droid, like the dozens of competitors before it, is not the ever-sought-after “iPhone killer.” I really should have just waited until this morning and listened to Verizon’s earnings call. After all, Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg more or less said it himself. When asked about a possible partnership with Apple in the future with the iPhone, Seidenberg had this to say, “We obviously would be interested at any point in the future that they would be... (more)

Modern Warfare 2 Features Third-Person Mode?

posted by adminadmin 2824 days, 5 hours, 27 minutes ago
Monday, October 26, 2009 9:14:39 PM GMT
Activision and developer Infinity Ward are grooming Modern Warfare 2 to be the biggest first-person shooter release in years, but recently leaked footage suggests that the FPS market isn't all they're gunning for; Modern Warfare 2 looks like it might feature a third-person view mode. The extremely low-quality video above was streamed from a French gamer who somehow got ahold of the PlayStation 3 version of the game well ahead of its November launch date. If this footage turns out to be legit, then you c... (more)

Monday, October 26, 2009 9:13:38 PM GMT
Echoing Red Octane's own initial sales expectations for DJ Hero, Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz has foreseen a slow start for the Guitar Hero spin-off. In fact, after speaking with retailers about low preorder activity, he's sliced his original sales estimates in half. Speaking with Edge Online, Creutz explained his prediction: "On DJ Hero, despite some recent positive comments from company management about preorders, we remain very cautious about the title's prospects at launch.

New DSi With Larger Screen Reportedly Releasing in Japan This Year

posted by adminadmin 2824 days, 5 hours, 29 minutes ago
Monday, October 26, 2009 9:12:16 PM GMT
Another year, another new DS model to stuff in someone's stocking? According to the Japanese Nikkei news service (via Kotaku), Nintendo plans to announce a new DSi model with a slightly larger screen, and release it in Japan before the end of the year. According to the details from the Nikkei report, this new DSi model will have a 4-inch screen (adding an extra 3/4 of an inch to the current DSi's 3.25-inch screen), and will still cost the same 18900 yen that the current DSi runs. Humorously, Nikkei evide... (more)
