TGS 2007: Unreal Tournament III for PS3 Lacks All PC Maps

IGN did a recent progress report on Unreal Tournament III:

"Mark Rein said that they are shooting for a November release and did say that the PS3 version would have "most" of the content that would be found in its PC brother. He said that there would be a couple of maps that would be left out of the PS3 version simply because the system didn't have the resources to produce a smooth gameplay experience."
Hmm, that may upset you, but:
"But rest assured, the classic Unreal Tournament modding could still be performed and uploaded to your friends. Rein even told us that there were plans to allow for players to release mods for sale on the Playstation Network and that the most popular mods and maps would be compiled and sold in an updated Unreal Tournament 3 package later down the line. We'll have much more on Unreal Tournament 3 as its holiday release date draws closer."
I really don't mind as long as we can have our own maps and such, what do you think?

TGS 2007: Steambot Chronicles 2 Eyes-On

While IGN was at the Tokyo Game Show 2007, they ran into Irem's tiny booth. Bumpy Trot 2 (Steambot Chronicles 2) was being shown in trailer form. They described it like this:

The trailer begins with an evening scene of a town. As a church bell rings, and a light snowfall begins, we're shown a boy seated on the sidewalk. He's in tattered clothes and braces himself from the cold. Beagles (that's the name the game uses for its mechs) and other vehicles crawl by on the street in front of him. The boy at first appears to be homeless, but he's actually there to shine shoes for cash. Meanwhile, across the street, we see a girl, who appears to be a bit more well-off than the boy, handing out fliers.

As a vocal track begins to play in the background, the scene switches to daytime, and we see the same boy and girl in a Beagle. They head off through the nearby fields, with a friend following behind in a Beagle of his own. They stop, and a large profile pic of the girl appears on the screen, along with three choices; apparently, the game is letting you select a response.

Next, we're given a look at a battle scene. The two Beagles coordinate to defeat a giant enemy vessel that's walking through the canals nearby. Our hero and heroine use an old trick from the first game, picking up a giant bolder and tossing it at the foe. All this resembles one of the earlier boss confrontations in the original Steambot Chronciles.

The scene switches back to town. Dozens of people are gathered in a pub as a lady sings on stage. There seems to be a celebration going on. Outside, the three Beagle riders are sitting around, chatting amongst themselves, when what appears to be a new foe enters the scene. They board their Beagles and head out to battle.
Certainly sounds like a great trailer. Hopefully soon, we can get an upload on GameTrailers or something.

Kaz Hirai: "I Think About PS3 Pricing Everyday"

"I think about PS3 pricing every single day. It is that important a factor ... But I am not planning any immediate pricing action now," he said.

Talk about weird thoughts. Most men think about girls everyday.

"I'm really not sure what they're thinking," he commented. "Hirai said no cut this year when asked the direct question, so I think the PS3 cut is unlikely until Spring. It now looks like the delay of Home and the lack of any killer games this year made them reconsider whether a price cut in 2007 would have much impact."

Pachter added, "I would not rule out a PS2 price cut, but it looks like we can put the PS3 cut to bed until some time early next year."
