Just noticed new Spelunker for PS3 added to the first post. Hilarious. Let the whole bottom feeder remakes for PS3 jokes commence!

Does it says anything else?
I didn't really notice anything that seems new/major (there's the stuff like the Short and Long range mode thing and side stepping), but some parts of the scan are too small for me and there's a glare, so maybe Duckroll or someone might find something better than I could.

Monster hunter is looking really great cant wait to see video of it. Vahalla Knights looks pretty good looking at the scans. Hopefully it's better than it's PSP brothers.

Seriously, everyone, you need to buy the Klonoa remake. We need as many old or new Klonoa games brought here as possible, especially since a Wii remake failure would probably signal that they'd be done with the series.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

It says that Demon's Soul would be playable at TGS!!! ZOMG!

Yep! Some more info:

-From Software are huge fans of kings field.
-Sony Approached From Software to make a game for them.
-The director thinks it was a great timing when sony asked about the game. He was working on Armored Core game and his company was working on an rpg (Probably Enchanted Arms?). It was a while since they worked on a fantasy game (I think more of an action rpg game).
-From Software gets complete freedom to make the game.
-They get also lots of help from Sony when they need to.
-The main character is a From Software like character. They want to have their From Software flavour with the game and characters.
-The game doesn't necessary have to look amazing, they are more aiming for a good game with the right balance.
-You can swap items in realtime? (Not sure about that).
-They want the game to look very rpg like and it has elements to remind you from older rpgs.
-They had of like a trial and error with the balance of the game many times.
-They are not planning on making the game too hard like other action rpg games.

Ps. I took a quick look at the interview and it's by no means a 100% accurate information. Sorry if I made a few mistakes.

Klonoa OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMgremake? :|

Have they ran out of ps2 ports already?
joke?

Well I am hyped about that anyway.

So, MGO expansion is the Konami TGS game, Spelunker Irem TGS game and Demon's Soul one of the 9 new titles for PS3

2/3 of the PSP games are 遠隔捜査 (PSP) and Diamond and the sound of a gunshot (PSP)?
Sweet.

Could be CG.... and yeah, it's a stupid thing to say. SCEJ needs to quality control the shit outta this.

Well they said more like 'My aim for the game isn't to have movies and an amazing graphics, the game like nature (gameplay, balance) is where I want to put progress in. I think what he thinks is, we're not thinking about the graphics only but we want to have a very good gameplay.

that sounds better but best aim for both...good games with mediocre graphics on ps3, as a new IP not sure how that is going to attract people. Still sounds encouraging

Klonoa for Wii. I never thought it would actually happen... Klonoa was on my Wii wishlist along with Goemon. Day one import for Klonoa and domestic too if it gets released.

it sounds like they're basically saying 'we developed the game with 'it MUST have great gameplay more than anything' in mind, that was our main goal with the game'
which sounds pretty good to me

From software are awesome. One of the most interesting developers out there, even if their games aren't to a lot of people's tastes. Very excited about this new game.

I haven't seen Diamond and gunshot scans yet. And I'm afraid my time is up. It's college time :( I hope Duckroll will be here soon to save the day :D
