Quantic Dream reveals new prototype, serves as the foundation for studio's future [Update: Now with video!] (Joystiq)

Mar 7th 2012 8:29PM @tendoboy1984

Cage has said he wouldn't mind being bought by them cause they have a good relationship with not just Sony but a lot of their 1st party studios as well:

"Asked if he’d like to take the relationship one step further and be fully owned by Sony Worldwide Studios, Cage said “of course I would. Of course. I really like Sony, honestly I do. They’ve made some bets with developers like Fumito Ueda and Media Molecule. I kind of feel loyal to them.”"

"We talk to Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Guerrilla, Media Molecule - all these great studios," he added. "We talk about technology, best practice, how we do things - we share experience and expertise. I think that's of real value for everybody."

For now though, he's focused on just working with Sony (plus they have a contract in place).

First Firefox 6 build next week, Firefox 7 by May, and aurora channel introduced (Download Squad)

Stupid question as it's in the chart and I just checked the FTP. Minefield seems to be the current mozilla-central and the mozilla-beta will be added later.

Apr 7th 2011 7:44AM I'm actually looking forward to the current a1 getting into the main. Firefox 4.0 runs sluggish for me but on this same computer, Minefield 4.2a1 runs fine. So whatever changes there are between the 2 seem to fix what I'm having with 4.0.

So is Minefield the mozilla-central build or the mozilla-beta build? Just want to know so I know which one to nab when this gets rolling (along with Aurora or whatever they decide to call it).

Opera 11.10 gets HTML5 File API support, IMAP improvements (Download Squad)

Mozilla Messaging reintegrates with Labs, unifies focus on Web-based communication (Download Squad)

Apr 5th 2011 3:08PM Really wish they'd release a bare-bones version of the browser without this upcoming Messaging stuff, Sync, Panorama, and whatever else they're bulking on. I'd be happy with just the basics (the browser itself, bookmarks, being able to download, etc.).

Windows 8 getting a built-in PDF reader, Metro-style (Download Squad)

How'd they feel about Silverlight, or was that not an issue for them (and isn't MS dropping that?)? Honestly, I wouldn't mind something coming in and taking a stab at Flash (I think that's what HTML5 is for but I haven't really followed all that jazz).

Firefox 4 rockets to 5% global usage share, IE9 wallows at 1.5% (Download Squad)

Mar 28th 2011 6:29AM @SlashZaku: Guess I should have reloaded the page first. Someone else pointed out XP before me. Mozilla, Google and Opera are still keeping XP in mind (for now) so I think it's kind of weird that MS would pass them up.

Mar 28th 2011 6:27AM Has anyone been able to gauge XP users in all this, since Microsoft opted out of IE9 for that crowd?

Firefox 4 manages 7 million downloads in first 24 hours, still going strong (Download Squad)

Mar 23rd 2011 5:09PM Probably an odd thing but I went back to 3.6. Not that I don't like 4, but it just feels slow on this computer compared to 3.6 (512MB of RAM mind you) but here's the even odder thing. I'm typing this comment from Minefield (just updated it to 4.2) and it works fast/fine compared to 4.0. I might redownload 4.0 and try a clean profile to see if that's the problem (I've hardly used Minefield recently since 4.0 was finishing up).

Google Chrome slated for bloat removal (Download Squad)

Oddly enough, I kind of wish all browsers were set up in this manner. I personally have no use for syncing or something like 'Panorama' in FF4 so it would be nice to have a DL of just the barebones/necessities of a browser.
