-- "This is just one of the game features that the CELL’s SPUs have enabled. They’re a really interesting architecture. As a developer, you can get code running on them easily and immediately receive good performance due to the fact that you now have the task running in parallel with the other cores. And yet the architecture offers so many optimisation strategies that, if you're that way inclined, you can really hone your code until the virtual cows come home. It’s with this in mind that I’m really looking forward to seeing how games develop over this generation because hardcore developers are really going to be able to push it hard. It’s gonna be a really interesting ride!" --

-- "And so it is that we have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the hair. On some days I sit back and look at it and I’m marvelled at the graceful way in which it twines around the heroine as she attacks a multitude of characters. It really is something that comes close to my high expectations. But then there are the other days when you loathe it with a passion. Imagine that you’re trying to set up a really cool looking screenshot for something like, oh, a developer diary. The pressure is on to hit the deadline and the scene is perfect. Yet one strand of hair is hanging from the heroine’s lip like a big fat moustache that wouldn’t look out of place in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." --

So......The built in physics of Nariko's hair are done at such a high value and precision that loose hairs actually get in the way of marketing / dev screenshots? ** "FKN - AMAZING!!!" **

Ratchet & Clank Future:ToD here. Those insomniac guys....they seems to be a smart bunch. Not to downplay HS. It's also a good showcase of the cell in action (as it seems for one with non-dev eyes). Motorstorm and Resistance did NOT use the Cell at all. Only RSX doing all the gfx, right?

I have to agree, this will be most intresting to see. Even if someone recently reaches 100% cpu usage, optimisation is a factor, as you said here (Maddens).

At least for looks, tho I'm pretty sure the story and gamplay will be too.
I'm hyped about it so much I read the whole thing xD some other news I'm just like "hmmm... too long... will read later" but not for this game.
Hope to see the demo very soon :D
