as far as i knew it wasn't coming on the PS3. anyone got anything else on this?Alex Seropian left Bungie some three years ago now, having lead the studio and played a crucial role in the development of the original Halo. Seropian's Spectrum MediaWorks studio, which he founded after waving Bungie goodbye, have been decidedly quiet since inception. Until now that is, with Seropian unveiling a massively-multiplayer online game which is in development alongside a tie-in TV show.
X Quest the series will feature real-world technologies, with the TV show being created by Ron Howard's production company. The programme will take place in a 'space simulator', pitting two teams of seven against one-another over the course of a month. The game, meanwhile, is set in the near-future, with the same technologies featured in both mediums. Players of the game will be able to interact with the team in the TV series, and events in both will have a knock on effect on the other.
Seropian stated that he hopes future series of X Quest can feature players from the game, which his studio have been creating for the PS3 and Xbox 360 for about three years. It certainly sounds very ambitious, an early 2007 launch for both is on the cards at present.
just found this on joystiq. must have missed it somehow:
I'm not really that much into FPS (only a small few,) but I'm wondering what this next project of his is. I hope it's something I will enjoy.
Sounds weird. Hopefully there's a good amount of info at E3.
yeah, I read this a while back. I am not that interested since it seems to be conected to a reality show or something.

Z its important. why do you think that Microsoft have just had their patent approved for remote viewing for games? once Sony link ericsson phones and camera phones, google, PSP, PS3 together on 'The Hub' (if thats what its going to be called) then everything will become clear. like i've said before: they are all spokes in a huge wheel and Sony are at the centre.

X quest (tv programme/game) is part of the deal. we have to start seeing the bigger picture.
and no i haven't got a thing about phones. its just difficult for me to view it all seperately because i have this gut feeling that we have had our eyes of the ball and it will all be part of the same whole in about a years time, with PS3 as the all powerful all singing media centre that controls it.
