All the article is saying is that the old games will be able to use the second analog thanks to emulation. I'm confused on why you believe they will receive additional functionality.
The remapping of controls can be done through emulation and it can probably be done on a game-by-game basis. All you have to do is take a look at PS1 games on PSP that use R2/L2 buttons remapped on the d-pad to understand what they will do with the older games. For example, the Monster Hunter games have camera controls mapped on the d-pad. This can easily be remapped to the second analog. Resistance: Retribution had the camera controls on the button faces, which again can be remapped to the second analog sticks.
So, no the existing games do not have to be programmed to take advantage of the second analog stick. The emulator can be programmed to remap those functions.
People keep saying Zelda. Yea...no thx. But it's literally the same game that has been ported to every other Nintendo console after the n64 does not warrant a purchase from me. I'm waiting on good original content.
@neoepoch: All the chests are pretty early in the game and contain nothing. Yea, it sucks that they don't spell it out for you, but a little research on it will allow you to avoid it easily. Plus, there are other ways to obtain the weapon.
@Beforet: FFIX with the stupid beat the game in under an impossible time to get the strongest weapon in the game. They made so ridiculously hard that you had to use a physical cheat to skip FMVs so you could beat the game in time. FFV with opening a wolf in jail will end up with missing chests. FFVI with Shadow dying on the floating continent.
What a horrible thread title. CONFIRMED??? Where is it confirmed? Until Sony actually confirms it, it's all rumors.
Also, as stated, I'm not a person who wants to play $1 casual games. Until Apple and Google take mobile gaming seriously enough to push for high quality titles then it's all meh to me. The bonus of the NGP is that it'll probably end up having both "hardcore" and "casual" games with better controls. The best of both world.
Using one of the mentioned CMS i.e. Wordpress, Drupal, etc and WYSIWYG programs are nice, but to truly get your site going the right way, you'll need to learn some coding. Even using CMS and pre-made themes, you'll want to go into the code to make the themes into your vision of how the site should look. These CMSes are great because they automate a lot of the background stuff that you may not want to deal with i.e. databases and such.
I would also highly recommend playing with something like WAMP, MAMP, or LAMP. These programs are actually aggregates of multiple programs that allow you to work on a local server on your computer i.e. you won't need a hosting service when working on a website.
