Homefront Single-Player Video
Check out the new single-player story trailer for Homefront! Homefront isn't scheduled until 2011, but what we've seen has piqued our interest in THQ's new franchise. Whether it can compete with the "big guys" in the FPS market is unknown at this time, obviously, but Homefront has the potential to tell an interesting and gritty story.
A story where America is gasping for her last, free breath. It is scheduled to be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 8, 2011 in North America and March 10, 2011 in Australia and March 11, 2011 in Europe.

ODM Mobile PowerVR ICs buys raytracing company
Ray tracing, called the Holy Grail in graphics by analysts, is a technique for rendering 3-D images with complex lighting models to achieve photographic realism. Caustic (San Francisco) claimed in March 2009 it had a hardware accelerator that could lower the cost of ray tracing and merge the lighting models with traditional polygon-based graphics rendering.
Imagination said it will add Caustic's accelerator to its PowerVR graphics cores "in the medium term" to attack professional and specialized graphics markets as well as some mainstream consumer markets. The company's cores are widely used in consumer and mobile SoCs today, but are increasingly coming under pressure from ARM's Mali cores.
