Examiner: "Cellius' Katsuragi Misato News Project can now be downloaded from the Japanese Playstation Store."
umm some1 care to enlighten me to what this is?
its a news program for the PS3. it uses Evangelion character Misato to talk about real news. waste of funds if you ask me.
a waste on us Americans or Euro's... but those Japanese are going to be on this like white on rice...
ahh thanks for the explanation. I was wondering if it was news or anime :/ apparently its a mix. +bubbles
It is also a screensaver where you could dress up the female character.
lmfao No wonder it sells in japan ;)
You do know that there's purple rice too, don't you? ^_- Btw, I had hoped Cellius would make a full Evangelion game! That would have been an amazing thing to behold... and would sell like crazy too! Oh well, I hope this is just a small project to get fans ready for the REAL game. >:D
I'm glad it's that kind of project actually , i hope that when they show a real game , it will be for more than a license .
Mind you, you'd have to have more characters. But imagine if Sony used something like that on Pulse or Core?
It's $8 a month to have her read real news to you, but in a very slow and robotic voice... doesn't sound like the anime voices cuz it lacks personality. Pretty much like Hatusne Miku, but probably just voicing out text instead of changing tone of actual voice samples. Trust me, people outside of Japan are not missing out much if they can't get this. Waste of Cellius' talent imo... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Not like news casters put any emotion in their news reading. Much like Cellius has shown any talent.
By having personality I mean NOT talking slowly, un-smoothly, and sounding like a robot. You don't have to trust me when I say she sounds terrible; use google translate or something and read what people from Japan are saying on the comment section of the youtube vid I linked. The whole thing might have worked if they used Ayanami Rei as their character instead of Misato cuz Rei talks like a robot anyway.
The application is actually free to download but you need to pay a monthly fee for news.
i hope this not what thing to come from Cellius but i'm sure the playstaion father has more up his sleeve for his favorite child
its the beginning i think.
I'm curious, is there any video of that thing? If it's a simple image with a bubble for text, it would be lame, but if it's a cel-shaded character that tells news by official seiyu's voice, that must be pretty awesome.
it's a cel-shaded character that tells news by official seiyu's voice well of course the voice is generated. but the quaility is pretty good.
And if you're not a man please forgive me - I have a cold.
its alright for the people that will like this but it just seems like a waste of you ask me also if this thing ever came to the US wouldn't they have to change the characters i mean evangelion wasn't all that big over here
Put the application in JRPG that uses static icons w/text, give it a few classic anime character gestures, as see if its still a waste. Maybe that's just Cellius is up to: creating a "test" that brings them in some money. The beta version of a bargain basment "Milo" that may eventually respond to in-game conversations.
Mhhhh if i remember well, Cellius was founded with the best Sony/Namco programmers for make stronger PS3 Titles.... wtf is this Cell-Shaded pseudo-game now? -.-
I'm glad this turned out to be a small project. Hopefully we'll still get to see Second Season, Brave Arms and Chain Limit.
