Next3D announced Monday that its 3D Movie player technology will be released for Macs and for Sony’s PlayStation 3 video game console. The software will be free and will work in conjunction with Next3D’s content delivery service.

Next3D movies are encoded using technology that provides 1080P-resolution high-definition stereoscopic imagery, along with digital rights management, distribution and auditing mechanisms for content providers. The software made a splash at last month’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco; a public beta is expected to be made available soon for the Xbox 360 version.

Next3D’s technology is based around a proposed specification for the H.264 video standard already in use; the proposed spec adds support for compression of multi-view-based content. When paired with a 3D-capable television (several models are already available from Mitsubishi and Samsung) along with LCD “shutter glasses” and an emitter that synchronizes the glasses to the television, it makes it possible to view content in 3D without any color shifting, as is common with old-fashioned red/blue anaglyph glasses.

One of my favorite Playstation 2 past times has always been the Onimusha Series Franchises, Takeshi Kaneshiro playing the lead role;

As Samanosuke Akechi in the new Adaptation of the film scheduled for a fall 2009 release into theaters no one realy knows that Health Ledger;

 2jga1ok

was cast to play Roberto, the Spaniard from Dawn of Dreams.

However the film has been put on hold until they name a replacement for Ledger. I hope Capcom can resurect this franchise from the past, I would love to see what they can do with the Playstation 3 hardware.  A perfect middle ware  would be Capcom RES 5+ Newly developed Engine.

More information about the film can be found here  currently Paramount Studios is currentl working with Director Samuel Hadida on the film.

OpenSUSE 11.1 includes some of the latest innovations from the open-source community and other projects in the openSUSE Project.

GNOME users now are able to accomplish more in a more powerful Nautilus file manager, which now features tabs to keep the desktop tidier. Managing and editing photos with F-Spot is now easier, with editing tools featured prominently with your photos. Keep in touch with your friends and colleagues with Pidgin, the IM client, and Ekiga, a new VoIP client which features great support for video chat. The Totem movie player is now able to watch YouTube videos, with support for searching built right in, or you can watch digital television with Totem & GNOME’s enhanced support for DVB.
 
KDE users can now experience the power and innovation of KDE 4.1 built right in to openSUSE 11.1. openSUSE features the latest features from the KDE desktop. On top of that openSUSE has added the most requested and missed features like cube desktop effects, auto-hiding panel and ability to run Folder View plasmoid as desktop. Users who prefer the legacy KDE 3.5 experience have the option to install that instead of 4.1 if they so choose.
Getting Work Done:

But when you need to put away those fun apps and get some work done, openSUSE 11.1 has you covered with OpenOffice 3.0 Novell Edition, the newest version of the popular office suite. Included are a word processor, presentation creator, spreadsheet creator, and more. Some of the new things in OpenOffice 3.0 includes spreadsheet collaboration, the ability to edit multiple pages in the word processor, and improved notes in the word processor. With openSUSE, OpenOffice is able to read and write all Microsoft Office files, including those made by Office 2007.

Another new app is Tasque. With Tasque, you can easily add and manage your to-do list, and look good while doing it. In addition, Tasque can synchronize with Remember the Milk, a popular online to-do manager, or Evolution’s task list, so no matter where you are or what you use, moving to and using Tasque is an easy procedure.

There are over 200 new features in openSUSE 11.1, and that’s only including features that are unique to us! For an overview what’s in and which version please check the

Sam Sharit is a senior character artist at independent videogames developer Insomniac Games, located in sunny Southern California. His role there involves mentoring junior character artists, along with the creation and development of character-related art and systems. This includes modeling, texturing, pipeline creation, and scripting.

A classically trained artist, Sam started producing digital art in 1997. He has contributed to several AAA games, including Dark Age of Camelot, Duke Nukem Forever, Fallout 3, and Insomniac’s acclaimed Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. He also has worked on a wide range of projects outside of games, including military contracts, music videos and more. Sam lives in Los Angeles.

Sam: I have worked on several next-gen games and I can say that there really is no standard and it depends on your tech. I have never been able to make 60,000 poly models on the other games I have worked on. I was taken back a bit by how far I could push the polies here at insomniac and it really comes down to having an engine that can plow through that much geometry. I am certain that this number will continue to raise in the future for us, and as developers come to grips with the hardware you will see higher geometry counts all around.
