Myamoto saying that Super Mario Bros Wii will have a kind of new way of gaming. A kind of extreme cut-scenes where the player is able to play while running, and with it it cannot be saved...or something like that. The man likes to keep it secrets and laught so much. Hehehe. This is the genius man. (= Read an interview @[Kotaku]
Sony wants new players and for it wants new softwares, soooo drop the devkits prices: "PSP Development Tool models DTP-T2000A and DTP-T2000 are now priced at $1,500 in North America; they're €1200 in PAL territories and ¥150,000 in Japan. With a lower barrier to entry for game development, Sony hopes to further strengthen the handheld's software lineup as a vehicle to broaden its 51.6 million worldwide install base.
Sony will also include productivity streamlining software ProDG for free as part of PSP SDK*1, and it's reduced the price of Testing Tool models DTP-H2500A and DTP-H2500 to $1,000, €800 and ¥100,000." [Gamasutra]
