Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

Here at G4, it feels like those weeks right before summer vacation. You know, time goes by too slowly, it's all you can think or talk about, and also, you'll be busting your ass at your summer job at E3 2011. That's us this week. It's going to be a lot of hard work to bring you the coverage you deserve, but we will do it, and we will have a blast. 

Next week's show is mostly going to be about E3: The Experience, the games, the terrifying stories... but since this is your Feedback, we want to hear from you. What do YOU want us to cover at E3 this year? What kinds of stories do you want to see, what games do you not want to miss- what should G4 at E3 look like. Join the crew as they discuss the ins, the outs, and why tiny sticks of deodorant are your best friends at E3.

Also, you're going to get to hear Adam and Matt geek out to the extreme about The Witcher 2. So prepare yourself, and give us your questions!

The Road to E3 2011: Sony Report Card

It seems like such a long time ago, but at E3 2010 Sony was looking good. The publisher will certainly have the most interesting – and difficult – transition to this year’s expo. With the massive leak of private user information and the shutdown of the PlayStation Network last month, things are looking hazy for the future of the brand, but one thing is for certain – the company will have to execute the best E3 showing of all time in order to recover.

Enough about the future, let’s now look back to the past – and see just how Sony fared at last year’s show.

Uncharted NGP

With the upcoming Uncharted game for the PlayStation NGP - which we'll call simply "Uncharted NGP" for now - Naughty Dog's Uncharted series is looking to set up home not just in your console, but your pocket too. Unfortunately, few details have been revealed about the game, other than it will not be developed by Naughty Dog, but Bend Studio - who you may remember from Resistance: Retribution for PSP.

However, new details about the game's place in the Uncharted franchise's timeline have somewhat murkily emerged. Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra reported to French gaming site Gameblog on May 18 that the game would run "parallel" to the console stories, between Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

Join the Feedback crew next Wednesday as we welcome special industry guest Jesse Divnich! Jesse spends his days as vice-president at Electronic Entertainment Design and Research, thinking about the future and analyzing video game trends. At night, we imagine he plays a fair share of video games as well. He'll be our guest in-studio as we speculate and prognosticate on the industry. Want to chip in? You can! 

Ask us questions about the past, present and future of gaming, and we'll pose them to Jesse. Want to know if motion gaming is a fad or here to stay? We'll put it to him. Need the info on possible future hardware releases? He's your guy. Wondering about what the PlayStation Network outage might mean long-term for Sony? That's a softball. Kingdom Hearts 3 release date? He's probably not going to be able to field that one.

We'll think up some more questions, in addition to those, but we want your queries as well. This is Feedback after all, where we want to put you in the picture. Just hit us in the comments below, and look for your question to be read on-air next week!

It isn’t often that the games industry is rocked by two massive news stories in a week, but that’s precisely what went down over the past few days, and, boy, has it been a whirlwind. Not only are millions and millions of PlayStation 3 owners scrambling to ensure their identities aren’t stolen in the wake of last week’s attack on the PlayStation Network, but gamers everywhere are speculating furiously about what Nintendo’s newly confirmed Wii successor might be now that we know it’s going to be playable at E3 2011. Oh, and there just happens to be a little thing called the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta that a whole mess o’ folks are playing at the moment, so that’s on the discussion agenda as well.

It’s a full show, and to guide you through it all is your host Adam Sessler and our illustrious panel: Stephen Johnson, Michael Leffler, and Nikole Zivalich. Enjoy!

Meet the NGP: Tech, Specs and More

Everyone in gaming might be hyping 3D, but Sony has been focused on slightly different, esoteric gaming experience since at least 2003: Augmented Reality gaming. Sony's next handheld system (code name: NGP) will feature some very impressive tech that will allow AR games beyond what we've seen before. Using the system's camera, the NGP takes your immediate surrounding and creates games based on where you actually are.

According to the PlayStation Blog,

"NGP builds on our experience with augmented reality over the years with PlayStation 2/EyeToy, PSP, and PS3/PlayStation Move. With front and rear cameras that combine real-time images of you and your environment, a brilliant 5-inch multi-touch OLED screen and rear multi-touch pad, internal motion sensors, and dual analog sticks, NGP offers new ways to interact that will change the way you think about augmented reality games… and possibly even change the way you think about reality"

Check it out in the video under the "Read More" tag.

NGP

A survey called "Ubisoft- NGP concept- US Adults" was conducted earlier this week by the research firm Toluna. It suggests the NGP will either cost $250 or $350 depending on the model you buy. The survey says "the retail price of the Sony NGP is expected to be around $350." It then asks the survey readers "would you be willing to purchase the Sony NGP now that you know this retail price?"

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

GDC is now behind us, but PAX East looms large this coming weekend. If you aren't going to be in Boston braving the cold and seeking out new games and geekery galore, then you'll probably be bundled up warm and snug playing Dragon Age 2 or trying to catch all of the Pokemons in Pokemon Black or Pokemon White. Either way, one thing that will help make your week complete is a full and heaping serving of Feedback

But as with every episode, we want your input! Ask us the questions you need to know about gaming, and we'll get you answers. Want to know about PAX East? Inquiring about Dragon Age 2? Wondering what games on the horizon are going to be worth checking out? Which ones you'll want to ditch? Why shouldn't sore thumbs from button-mashing be covered by insurance? Anything you want to know, ask away.







G4 Is Heading To GDC 2011!

Hey, Feed faithful! This year’s Game Developers Conference is just around the corner, and we here at G4 are in the final planning stages as we prepare to bring you all of the breaking news, interviews, previews, panel discussions, rumors and videos your precious game-loving brains can handle straight from one of the year's biggest gatherings in the games industry.

GDC 2011 officially kicks off Monday, February 28 and lasts through March 4, and G4tv.com will be all over it like some kind of incurable developer conference fungus, only…you know…not as gross. We’re expecting to see plenty of big name titles at the show, from Battlefield 3 to The Darkness 2 to, perhaps, the new game from Epic Games that was previously rumored to be announced at the show. In other words, lots of good stuff.

In addition to the countless number of fascinating panels and roundtables, another big highlight will obviously be the keynote presentation from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, in which he may or may not announce that Wii Points have become the official currency of the universe. It’s more likely that he’ll stick to the keynote topic, “Video Games Turn 25: A Historical Perspective and Vision for the Future,” but we’ll see.

So keep your eyes and ears glued to G4tv.com starting next week for all of the latest updates from this year’s big show.

PSP2, PSP, PSP Go, NGP: A History of Sony's PlayStation Portables

According to an unnamed source quoted by Eurogamer, Sony's upcoming handheld, codename NGP, is "a developer's dream" system, with some very, very intriguing features, including the possibility of games that are cross platform with the PlayStation 3.  According to the source, "Sony is finally doing the things developers have been crying out for for years."

The details emerged during a presentation to U.K. developers, in which some of the hardware's features were revealed. Here's a bullet-pointed list of what you can expect when the device launches:

Sony has released a trailer that shows off some new PlayStation NGP gameplay for a number of a big PlayStation franchises set to make appearances on Sony’s newly unveiled handheld, such as Uncharted, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, and Resistance. There's also footage from a number of other games as well, including the interesting looking puzzle Smart As (Working title) and the ball-based platformer Little Deviants (Working title). Behold:

Games For The PlayStation NGP Trailer »



How many times has Feedback had the game of the week be a freaking console?! We didn't quite do it with the Nintendo 3DS, although we've talked circles around that unit. But we're definitely doing it with the Sony PSP 2 / NGP / OMGWTFBBQ. And why not? Sony is finally packing everything you could want into their handheld, portable game system, but is it enough? Are we still going to want one at launch?

You'll find out in this edition of Feedback with Adam Sessler, Matt Keil, Leah Jackson (not Lea Thompson, we're working on getting her) and myself Kevin Kelly (and no, I'm not Stephen Johnson). We also talk about the latest news, Leah spouts off about Rift where she's been powering through the beta, and the Starcraft 2 beta mods Left 2 Die, Starjeweled, and everyone's favorite Aiur Chef

 

Feedback -- Will You Buy A Sony PSP2 / PlayStation NGP? »


Feedback: Where you really have to work very, very very hard to nestle in our pockets next to some lint.

The AUDIO MP3 of this episode of FEEDBACK is available here. Right click to download.

Last week we all got our first look at the NGP, Sony's Next Generation Portable gaming system (you can still call it the PSP2 if you want). While Adam wasn't in New York for the press conference, he was paying attention from the comfort of his own home. In this week's Soapbox, find out what Adam thinks of the NGP, if it will sell well, and what it might have to do in order to compete with other portable platforms like the iPhone or the 3DS.

PSP2, PSP, PSP Go, NGP: A History of Sony's PlayStation Portables

There are a lot of cool features planned for the Sony's upcoming portable system (Codename: NGP), but you'll notice something missing from the device: A UMD slot, so the games you bought for your "last generation" PSP won't be playable on whatever Sony ends up calling the NGP. But don't worry: there will still be a couple options for playing older games on your new generation system.

In an interview, Sony said it's working with third-party publishers to release their titles in downloadable form through the PlayStation Store, something that's been a bit of an ongoing process since the release of the PlayStation Go, the last iteration of the PlayStation Portable.
