umm some1 care to enlighten me to what this is?

pwnsause3206d ago

its a news program for the PS3. it uses Evangelion character Misato to talk about real news. waste of funds if you ask me.

Jager3206d ago

a waste on us Americans or Euro's... but those Japanese are going to be on this like white on rice...

WildArmed3206d ago

ahh thanks for the explanation.
I was wondering if it was news or anime :/
apparently its a mix.


SpaceSquirrel3205d ago

It is also a screensaver where you could dress up the female character.

No wonder it sells in japan ;)

rockleex3205d ago (Edited 3205d ago )

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?

Dir_en_grey3204d ago (Edited 3204d ago )

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...

Godmars2903204d ago

Not like news casters put any emotion in their news reading. Much like Cellius has shown any talent.

Dir_en_grey3204d ago (Edited 3204d ago )

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

MajesticBeast3205d ago

its the beginning i think.

Sangria3205d ago

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.

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.
