The vocal minority’s opinions only mean so much, but when it’s calling you “the evil empire,” it might be time to set the record straight. Such was the aim of a recent PAX East panel, during which Activision-owned studios Vicarious Visions, Raven Software, and High Moon stormed the stage with some sunshine and butterflies to balance out the publisher’s heaping helping of doom and gloom.

In a less than complimentary comment towards the now defunct Sierra, Keith Boesky, an independent agent who represents the Robert Ludlum estate, has claimed a new deal with EA means the author’s IP is now being handled by “grown ups.”
“EA came in the strongest, had the best take on the property, and they know how to grow the IP and have unquestioned worldwide market reach,” he told Variety.
“We’re dealing with grown ups now.”
Sierra published the first Bourne game, developed by High Moon, last year.
EA announced it signed a ten-year pact with the Ludlum estate yesterday.
Starbreeze is developing the first game based on the deal.

Speaking to VG247, The Bourne Conspiracy developer High Moon has said that it’s itching to go on a sequel to the action game, and has plenty of ideas yet to realise for the digital version of the haywire super-spy.
“It hinges entirely on how well it’s received,” said lead designer Rory McGuire, when asked if we can expect a second game. “You guys are just starting to put reviews out in the UK and Europe, and there’s sales and a number of other factors, but we’d all love to work on a sequel here.”
He added: “There are so many areas where we can expand and take the character of Jason Bourne. So if we’re approached to do a sequel then yeah, you’ll see a lot of those great ideas come to fruition.”
While a sequel is yet to be decided, The Bourne Conspiracy is now released in both the US and Europe. The game draws together fighting, shooting and driving, disparate elements the developer locked together with the character of Jason Bourne himself.
“From a game design perspective you’re really talking about three to four separate games,” said Emmanuel Valdez, the title’s director. “We were really looking for something to tie it together, a through-line.
“Of course that’s just working with the property itself and creating a Jason Bourne game. By focusing our development around creating an experience to make players feel like Jason Bourne, we were at least able to create a coherent tie between all those features and make an entirely great action experience.”
Review tomorrow. Promise.

Oh. Dear. According to this Loot Ninja story, the PS3 version of The Bourne Conspiracy requires a 5Gb install.
This isn’t the best news in the world if you have a 40Gb PS3, obviously. Bit of music, Devil May Cry 4, Warhawk and Bourne and you’re kind of doomed.
Which is a shame.

It’s media Friday, from the look of it. First up’s a new trailer of The Bourne Conspiracy, and it’s all in-game. Looks very violent and great. Shooting, crunchy fighting, jumping through windows on trains. Just like what Bourne does, isn’t it. After the link. It’s out for PS3 and 360 at the end of this year.
