Developing AAA games for the next generation of consoles will cost more than ever. But Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima told Edge about a novel idea which might make some developers more comfortable taking risks on long, expensive projects:
“I think there’s a different way of tackling this problem: something similar to a TV series, where you can use pilot episodes to test the waters before you jump completely into the project… It can be distributed via download channels, so the player can try it out before production continues. Something like that wouldn’t take that long to create, maybe a year, and if it’s successful, you can continue.”
Kojima said PlayStation 4′s enhanced download and streaming features make it an ideal place to host such a system, and its social focus means players might even get involved with the development process itself… Hopefully turning out better than Megaman Legends 3.
“I think there’ll be a social aspect to game creation, because it will be more interactive,” Kojima said. “You’ll get user feedback, and I think there’ll be this back-and-forth between users and creators.”
DC Nation returns Sept. 29 on Cartoon Network with new episodes and shorts featuring the heroes of DC Comics.
The block, a collaboration between Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, will feature new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice. Airing at 10 a.m., the block also will feature new shorts and behind-the-scenes featurettes.
New animated shorts include JL Animals, a hilarious take on Justice League where animal versions of classic DC heroes show off their wild sides while facing trouble on the farm, and Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld, which follows the adventures of nerdy and introverted Amy Winston as she does battle with the evil Dark Opal as Amethyst, the powerful princess and protector of Gem World.
Favorites like New Teen Titans, S.B.F.F. and DC’s World’s Funnest from Aardman Studios also will make their return. DC Nation will continue to showcase event programming, interstitials, exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at theatrical motion pictures and an insider look into the world of all things DC Entertainment.

From Oprah’s surprisingly low-key farewell to the year’s most soul-crushing break-up on “The Good Wife” (Kalicia, no!), the year was packed with fantastic hours of television — pretty much all of which we watched. There were teary goodbyes (“Friday Night Lights’s” Texas forever! “Smallville’s” tights and flights!), tense face-offs (why can’t all CIA interrogations take place on the front porch of a cabin, like on “Homeland”?) and of course we made room for a little “Glee” (because certain underdogs deserved it).
