Unity announced today that it will stop selling Flash deployment licenses but will continue support for Flash customer for the rest of the current cycle.
The news was posted on the Unity blog, courtesy of Shack News, and states the decision is due to Adobe not being committed to future Flash development, saying “We don’t see Adobe being firmly committed to the future development of Flash. This is evidenced by the cancellation of Flash Player Next, the instability of recent Flash Player versions and by Adobe’s workforce moving on to work on other projects. By introducing, and then abandoning, a revenue sharing model, Adobe eroded developers’ (and our) trust in Flash as a dependable, continuously improving platform.”
Adding to that, Unity states that its own Unity Web Player has seen unprecedented growth in recent months, already installed on over 200M computers and by 1/3 of all Facebook gamers.

“I can’t blame you if you couldn’t imagine a Facebook game at the level of Unreal Tournament 3 before today. We’re not just talking about triple-A console quality on the web, we’re actually showing it onscreen, in a web browser, playing inside Flash. We chose as our demo a fully playable level from Unreal Tournament 3, and it turned out to look even better than the version we shipped on Xbox 360 and PS3, with improvements like global illumination, better shadows, and god rays.” – Epic’s Mark Rein to Develop regarding Tim Sweeney’s Adobe MAX 2011 demo of UT3 running in Flash Player 11.

Epic’s Tim Sweeney announced during Adobe MAX 2011 today that Unreal Engine 3 now runs inside Flash Player 11. To demonstrate how it works, he demoed Unreal Tournament 3 running in Adobe’s latest update which was released yesterday. This means browser games using UR3 can provide the player with a “real” 3D experience. This will also make it easier to convert browser-based games into apps for mobile devices. The big thing, will be Facebook games: since these are browser-based games, using UR3, you may eventually find that your farm or zoo games will finally start looking more like a PC or console title. Check out shots of UT3 running in Flash below.

EA 2D has announced the development of Dragon Age: Journeys, a Flash game obviously based on BioWare’s upcoming RPG.
“At EA 2D it is our mission to create blockbusters for the browser; some will be original games created by our teams and some will be games within other EA franchises, such as Dragon Age Journeys,” said producer Ethan Levy.
“We have some big plans for Journeys. The first piece that we are currently building is a 3 chapter, single player, tactical RPG delivered in Flash. Right now we’re hard at work finishing the first chapter, Dragon Age Journeys: The Deep Roads. The game will introduce you to the dwarven city of Orzammar and the Deep Roads surrounding it where the dwarves face a persistent threat from the darkspawn hordes.”
A release date and more information is expected in the coming weeks.

Sony’s released Firmware 2.53 for PS3: we’re downloading as we type.
The update caused a bit of a kerfuffle last week with what appears to have been an erroneous post from SCEA and some good old gun-jumping from the internet, but it’s there now. So relax.
The software gives full-screen Flash support to your machine, and “Live movie (using RTMP format) playability,” according to this US PS Blog post.
