What's the story behind the Plastic PS3 demo?

category: offtopic [glöplog]
* Was it not allowed to enter the wild compo, or did the authors themselves decide not enter it (because it was made with company resources or something)?
* When will we get a high-quality video?
* Is the rumored PC port coming?

Inquiring minds wants to know! :)

we never thought of putting the demo in any of the official compos, thats quite obvious i hope :)

Sdw : when Sony recruits people paying them to make a demo for their console, it seems fair that the demo doesn't enter a regular party compo.

Excellent work on that demo guys, it was really beautiful. Sony people probably don't regret their investment ;)

That PS3-demo was _MAD_ impressive -- someone provide a video of course (I'm guessing an executable is pretty hard to come by, and even harder to run on a stock PS3 :)

keops : So you are saying that Sony gave them money (not only access to devkits etc.) and said 'Do a cool demo'? Very nice of Sony in that case!

Where does bonzaj work? I figured he was just a developer for SCEE as his day job or something...

Oh, also, release a 1080p M4V I can watch on my PS3 so at least I can pretend it's running realtime XD

the demo is called " linger in shadows".for sure it will take some time untill it will be released on ps3, as its not ready yet(ie. from my behalf, music is not 100% ready).

as for the Sony questions, well...its comercial project,(c) by sony as it was shown on the bigscreen, so... use your imagination and you will know :)

It would rock if it was released on PSN as a promotional tool or something. I get to watch it realtime *and* exposure for the demoscene :)

blz: well, it's not a demo :-). or not only a demo, to be exact. it's not a game, either. it's something rather new both to the scene and consoles. and it's definitely not an afterwork project of some ps3 gamedev team. I don't think you'll be able to get an avi (yet) because of copyright issues. but ps3 owners will be able to run it in the future (when it's finished and published) and I hope they get much fun.

the rest - what to say and what not to say - is up to bonzaj and his agreements with scea. I'm sure he'll answer at least some of your questions when he reaches home and gets some sleep which he deserves very much.

On the #breakpoint channel, some guy called 'Hop' was telling yesterday 2 more groups agreed with Sony to make something.
Anyone knows about this?
