PS2 devlog: China Week!


Not sure if people will care about this or not, let me know and I'll keep it up or knock it off depending. I know folks are longing for new PS2 info, and we're about to start to roll out a bunch of it in the next couple weeks, but, I figured it wouldn't hurt to give you guys some insights into whats up on the dev side.

Today Smed, T-Ray, Ryan (our tech director) myself and a couple other folks are on our way to Shanghai to meet with our Chinese partners at the9. It's capping off a busy few weeks: Last week was the end of one of our internal sprints, which was hectic and awesome as always, and the week before that several members of the SOE team including myself were out at GamesCom in Germany. We're meeting with lots of folks and showing them the game - and there is a lot of excitement all around.

I really can't wait to show you guys more, I think you're going to be amazed at what we've got cooking up here.

Okay, I'm told that our ride to the airport has arrived, so I've got to split! I'll try to have a more dense update next time if you guys actually dig hearing about the game dev process!

Thanks for the update Higby, please keep us as informed as you are allowed to

Now on to the rabid fan business. They just finished an "Internal sprint" and are now flying to China, obviously the only reason can be that beta is imminent!!! Let's go crazy! Woooo

Awesome! Keep it coming Matt. As someone really interested in the dev/business side of games its always interesting to me to hear about the finer points of game development/product cycle. Have fun in Shanghai!

I heard T-Ray speaks Cantonese.

Either way It's nice to hear you're spreading the word and all, but I better see pages of all my favorite pc and gaming mags to have advertisements, and nothing like RIfts awesome idea of "you're not in Azeroth" oO

Matt, we are not the usual bunch of guys who just want the game and dont care about anything else. We are interrested in what you guys are doing, and if you are just telling us that you get to china for a week, we are still happpy. Its not a screenshot or even a trailer, but hey, we still deeply care. At least some of us do. After all, i spend 130€ on a train ticket for GamesCon i didnt use because i screwed up. Granted, got most of the cash back and just lost about 20 €, but still, i planned to spend a day in a train for the off chance to chat with you guys, knowing that its very very unlikley that i would learn anything new. Still sucks that i jsut screwed up, would have got some Red Bull for you.

In short, we care. And tell T-Ray to show up here more often! Same as you, show up here, always! :P

Wondering what exactly you gonna do with the9. I was under the impression that the deal is all done and stuff. Making a personal show up at the9 indicates that some serious business is about to happen. Are you showing them how to set up the servers to start their beta, or how to translate the client? Hmmmmmmmm, smells alot like beta soon.

Wish I could see Tony Park's face when you guys ask..."so can you run all this?"

Hoping this game is further along than even I thought - since China releases usually follow US releases. ie WoW.

PS. Thanks for the update.

Awesome to hear what's been going on! Thanks for keeping us all in the know, especially with the crazy schedule you've been having. It's refreshing to hear from a developer who actually sounds like he loves his job so much!
