Sony just unveiled the PlayStation Move to an excited GDC audience and the Déjà vu was absolutely palpable! You’d think with all the time and technology between the Wii’s 2006 launch, Sony would’ve floored the press with something new and exciting… then they rolled the sizzle reel featuring multiracial groups of thin people pretending to have fun and we knew it was all over.
If you've been waiting on tenterhooks for more news of Sony's enigmatic motion controller, wait no longer. The controller (formerly called Arc) was officially unveiled today as Move during Sony's press conference at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, and shown off alongside a handful of games.
In practice, the Move was more or less exactly what we expected it to be: the PlayStation 3's answer to the Wii remote and Nunchuk, complete with games that look conceptually similar to Nintendo's showcase titles. Golfing, archery and, yes, boxing were all represented, albeit with a more clearly "mature" bent than Nintendo's Mii-infused minigames.
The Games Developer Conference is like an artsier E3 - more focused on the art and thought of making games than the hype that surrounds them. That said, Sony's taking advantage of having everyone on hand for GDC to spout some new knowledge about its wares. We hear they'll be talking about their motion control tech, but could there be more? Check out below, and be sure to join in on the conversation!
3D games are rendered with polygons - little shapes that form surfaces. You know this. UNLEARN EVERYTHING YOU KNOW! Or...not. Startup Unlimited Detail has instigated a minor internet brouhaha with a video which claims that they can do away with the imperfect polygonal approach and render scenes which contain an unlimited number of points ("infinite geometry!") by using a super-clever search algorithm which only processes what's visible to the player. And they sort of can. Sounds like brilliant, cutting-edge stuff, right?
We're massive Street Fighter fans (we did post a whole week of content about it, after all), and this is without a doubt the most stunning character art we've ever seen. An artist named BossLogic has posted several images of classic fighters, each one with a level of detail that's second to none.
We grabbed these three just to tease it, but by all means head to his Deviant Art page for the whole body of
Yesterday the news broke that, according to IMDB.com, Robin had been cast and would appear in Batman Arkham Asylum 2. But many aren’t sure if this is a good or bad thing. Isn’t Robin just an annoying kid in nylons who says corny phrases while being held for ransom by the Joker? Won’t that make Arkham 2 suck? Well, thanks to the insanely deep and perplexing history of comics, that all depends on which Robin we’re
The final newcomer in Capcom's update to Street Fighter IV was revealed last night during one of the company's underground "Fight Clubs," confirming internet speculation that it was a bright red wrestling maniac who douses himself in oil before each fight. Hakan hails from Turkey, and comes complete with some of the weirdest moves of all time.

The story on Kotaku of two real-life soldiers recreating the Modern Warfare 2 box art in a bit of downtime was pretty impressive. They did a damn fine job with their cosplay covers. This is one of them:
Inspired, we thought we'd mock up a few game covers and swap character artwork for actual people that are dressed up to look like game characters. We went mostly for the sexy approach, although there is one 'joke'
Football is all about scoring. Actually, screw that. Football is all about rubbing the other team's noses in it when you slam one in their net. And there's no better game for being a showboating SOB than EA's upcoming FIFA World Cup game. Below you'll find some of the funniest and downright stupid ways to celebrate goals in the game, which range from dancing, doing a Cantona, to faking a stroke.
Remember there's no such thing as being
