Evolution Studios, the developer behind franchises like World Rally Championship and MotorStorm, has been shut down by Sony, we’ve just learned. The company’s most recent DriveClub was a troubled project for the studio and Sony, having seen delays and online problems – 55 people had been cut from Evolution just one year ago. Now, Sony has made the tough decision to make the rest of the Evolution staff redundant.
Such a shame. When it comes to arcade racing games, Evolution was one the the finest developers.
Finally got around to finishing Until Dawn. It’s a great, sometimes brilliant game, mainly because of a cohesive story and an abundance of player choice. It could do with a slightly better frame rate and a handful of gameplay enhancements, but those a minor quibbles.
If you haven’t played Until Dawn yet, I highly recommend playing it with friends. It makes the experience that much better.
Let’s put this into perspective: the console has sold more than the PlayStation 2 did in the same amount of time.
Only 200 of the consoles were said to have ever been made and all of them were ordered destroyed. But here it was, in a series of photos, the glorious, boxy grey machine sporting both a cartridge slot and a CD tray.
Pretty extraordinary. The article includes lots of photos and a video, too.
