“Yes, Mr. Cameron? If you’re not too busy back-stroking in your private water park wave pool filled with half the world’s money, we’ve got someone on the line who might be able to help you scoop up the other half.”

Ubisoft has released a second developer diary for Avatar: The Game titled Beautiful But Deadly.
In it, James Cameron and the development team discuss the landscape of Pandora and the danger and beauty that lurks within it.
Apparently, the world is its own living, breathing character in a sense with its bioluminescence and otherworldly creatures and you can experience it as either a Human or Navi, seeing both sides of the situation.
Game’s out in December for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Ubisoft has released the first developer diary for Avatar: The Game.
In it, you will discover things about the Avatar universe you didn’t know – if you knew anything to being with – and how it intersects with the film by James Cameron.
It’s a bit sparse on gameplay, but instead has Cameron and the developers chatting about the work that went into it, and hopefully the next diary in the series will show us a bit more of the game itself.
Game’s expected to be released close to the same time the movie’s out, in November, for DS, PC, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360.

Avatar: The Game for PSP will be able to communicate with the PS3 version or the game, according to reports.
Sounds like another Ubisoft title you may have heard about. Assassin’s Creed 2.
Anyway, one of the features is the ability to transfer “Effort Points” from PSP game to PS3.
According to the October issue of PlayStation:The Official Magazine, the PSP version has players taking on the roll of a Na’vi warrior and these “Effort Points” transferable through both games will give your characters a bit of a boost.
More should be revealed when the new issue lands.

The first movie trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar movie has popped up over on CVG.
It’s is what you would expect. Full of CGI special effects, half-naked blue being being shot out of the sky by the military, and the prerequisite love story.
Guess there has to be something there to get the ladies to go see it, we reckon.
After the trailer was shown to CVG, a Ubisoft rep told the site: “Wait till you see the game trailer!”
Okay, where is it then?
It’s out later this year for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and PC.

Ubisoft marketing boss Murray Pannell is just a teensy bit excited about the upcoming game based on James Cameron’s Avatar. He’s even gone and mentioned he-who’s-become-a-household-name, Harry Potter, alongside Cameron’s untested opus.
“Avatar looks set to be a world-changing kind of cinema given its pedigree and elements like the 3D,” Pannell told MCV.
“It reminds me of my experience at EA, working on the original Harry Potter game – which was an incredible entertainment phenomenon.”
“Avatar has movie director James Cameron, and Potter also had one person ultimately in charge – JK Rowling, who everyone was terrified of disappointing. That can give you real focus,” he added.
Inspiring. More through the link.

Avatar: The Game will support 3D effects on televisions that have the technology.
Good for you if you have the TV, but if you want to play it on Xbox 360 you will need one that has an HDMI-out.
According to the game’s brand manager Luc Duchaine, the game will require 1080p resolution to see the 3D effects, and on 360 this is through the HDMI port.
Wii users will just have to be content with 2D, because 3D is not an option for it. Duchaine said that the only way 3D would have been accomplished on the Nintendo console was with anaglyph 3D combined with those lovely red and blue glasses.
However, Duchaine said that “anaglyph doesn’t offer a quality image, and quality is synonymous with the James Cameron name.”
Well, yeah. Cameron’s king of the world ya know.

A first look for Jame’s Cameron’s Avatar has popped up over IGN.
The demo was played on Wii using Wii MotionPlus, and it sounds interesting to say the least.
You should go check it out if you are interested in the game.
Game’s out for everything under the sun in December, except for that homemade console you made out of cardboard in 4th grade. That was a miserable show-and-tell day.

James Cameron has talked about his involvement in Avatar with Edge-Online and revealed that he “created some boundaries” in order to protect a possible follow-up.
“I created some boundaries for areas I didn’t want to go,” said Cameron, “if not to protect the movie then to protect the sequel possibilities – stuff like that.
“It was a really good collaboration,” he added.
Cameron goes on to talk about 3D in the game, whether he plays, how does he view in the industry in five years time, and all manner of things.
It’s good. Read it.

Hollywood director James Cameron told the crowd at Ubisoft’s E3 conference yesterday that he felt the company was the best choice of creative partner for Avatar.
“Technically, we have a lot in common with Ubisoft and the game world,” said Cameron.
“We utilized highly sophisticated technologies in creating Avatar so, when it came to choosing a game company, I wanted a partner that would not only be inspired creatively by the world of Avatar but would have the capacity to keep up with the challenging demands of its technological needs. Ubisoft was that company.”
The game ships this December for high def consoles, PC, Wii and handhelds.
Full press release after the break.
