Introducing .detuned

Rusty Buchert's Avatar + Posted by Rusty Buchert on May 01, 2009 // Sr. Producer, Sony Santa Monica Studios

.deTuned

It’s Rusty Buchert from SCEA Santa Monica again and I’m here to talk to you about another experiment from the demoscene that will be coming down the pipeline later this year. This one is called .detuned and is made by .theprodukkt, who has been involved in the demoscene for quite a while now. They have done some interesting pieces, which includes .kkrieger, an FPS that is all done with one 96k file.

.detuned is a bit of an odd beast that offers an abstract and surreal interactive experience like nothing else. It is not exactly a game or an art piece like Linger in Shadows. It allows you to create your own visual to accompany your favorite music tracks on the XMB, and using the SIXAXIS™ Wireless Controller, you will be able to manipulate the given scene by interacting with and modifying a man and his world. It even lets you tweak your music as you play with it.

Check out some of the photos below.

It’s all in your hands!

That’s all I can offer for now. Continue to check here for the latest updates!

+ Dark_Vincent on May 1st, 2009 at 10:28 am said:

Nice! The music playback feature on the PS3 could use some innovation!

I’ve seen other theprodukkt works before and when I first read about Linger in Shadows and the demoscene on this blog I immediately thought about them.

+ DropD on May 1st, 2009 at 10:30 am said:

hopefully you can record what you create!


18

+ StaticFox on May 1st, 2009 at 10:30 am said:

Sounds interesting, but I hope it’s more interactive and creative than just moving things around…

Maybe I’m still just disappointed with all the PS Eye downloads that don’t do enough…

+ almighty-slayer on May 1st, 2009 at 10:33 am said:

Sounds pretty awesome. Looking forward to seeing more of this.

+ KidCommando on May 1st, 2009 at 10:35 am said:

Damn! This has possibly been the best week ever for this blog:

-Uncharted beta with inFamous preorder
-Uncharted multiplayer information and video
-MAG gameplay trailor
-Exclusive Marvel Vs Capcom 2 demo
-Pixel Junk 1-4 Contest and gameplay video
-PSN Battlefield game and Gordon Van Dykes’ 80+ replies (he better get that platinum Sony)
-White Knight Chronicles information
-This new interactive experience, .deTuned

I hope this continues into next week and remains solid. Great job on all the EXCLUSIVE content Sony Blog!

Keep. It. Up.

    This is actually a seperate application. A ong and convoluted story as to why, but it is an app.

I heard about this the other day and was so curiously excited! I don’t understand it, but I want it!

I do hope you’ll be able to have a woman instead of a man as well :S

So this is what those screenshots I saw in the most recent Qore were.

Can’t wait to hear more about this at E3. Interested in the licensing/legalities when uploading music to your servers. This looks pretty rad. Love the experimental stuff (well except Noby Noby Boy).

+ WickedCobra03 on May 1st, 2009 at 11:16 am said:

This is exactly why I love the Playstation 3. You deliever new and different experiences than Xbox Live!. Sure, they have just a shear amount of games, but you guys kill them in new and innovative variety that really let you play games a different way. I loved how Linger In Shadows was so cheap, hopefully this one is under 3 or 4 dollars at most.

I love the exclusives, keep them coming for the PS3, and the Playstation Portable. If fun and priced well, I will keep buying!

Seems pretty interesting.

This is interesting.

More, please, yes.

+ Griffins22 on May 1st, 2009 at 11:32 am said:

@20: We still got tomorrow, maybe this week could get even better.


38

+ sam_i_jam on May 1st, 2009 at 11:35 am said:

Wow, I’m intrigued. This is perfect to allow for more unique visual experiences from the XMB while playing music.

+ Berae on May 1st, 2009 at 11:43 am said:

This is awesome!

I have one question tho.. Why my music files are not working anymore on my ps3, some work some dont and it says that it is not compatible, they used to work before the last update and i dont feel like putting all my cds again in my ps3, is there anything i can do to make them work again?

Thanks

    Hi THere,

    Just wondering are they MP3\’s or WMAs? If they are WMA\’s double check the setting in the settings portion of the XMB, maybe it got switched off? Otherwise I don\’t know. Hrmmm.

+ Kxpuc on May 1st, 2009 at 11:58 am said:

@20 it’d be better if we got a Demon Souls’ release date in NA since there’s no translation needed to be done by SCEA

pssh im not wasting money on this like i did on linger in shadows

+ ExcelKnight on May 1st, 2009 at 12:09 pm said:

Looks good. Might grab it because I’m a visualization fanatic. If this thing can do music alterations with a pretty broad range of effects, I’m definitely sold.

+ Watchmann on May 1st, 2009 at 12:18 pm said:

Sounds fantastic, Rusty. I loved Linger in Shadows. This will be an instant purchase (as long as we’re under $5). I’m not even going to bug you about trophy support, as my mind is boggled as to what kind of trophies you’d have for something like this. Which raises the question– if it’s not a game, or even interactive art (a la LIS), then can Sony mandate trophies for it? heh ;)

    For projects like this I go with what I feel you guys want/expect. I figure it is the best way to go. As it is projects like this are always a challenge to get people to wrap their head around.

    Cheers
