CRI Middleware have announced a new middleware for NGP development, the CRI ADX 2, which is also compatible with the PS3 and PSP.
What? They already showed MT Framework and Unreal Engine 3 and PS Meeting.
Have seen that logo in sooo many games, does Blops use it too?
The first thing that pops in my mind when i see the logo is Crytek lol
Very Nice!! More third party developers supports.
Fun fact, CRI is a company owned by CSK, the former owners of SEGA until 2003 (and the ones who support them during their consoles days). People think the company disappeared/left gaming after the founder passed away but there still in it. It's also why so many Dreamcast games made use of CriWare.
These guys have made decent engines.Persona 3 and 4 used engines from CRIware
Every tool helps the Devs so i see this as being very positive. But they really dont have to do much with the NGP in terms of sound because they are only working with 2 speaker (either in the NGP or in headphones)
Without Criware I doubt the playstation brand would be where it is now. Even as a PC gamer moving to console, I was impressed that a PS1 could transition seamlessly from gameplay models to FMV. Something quite difficult to do without massive optimisations.
as someone mentioned before you saw that sign at the start of every dreamcast game. more software to help make games for the NGP is a good thing too me, it seems like its getting a lot of support.
