      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Sony developing Shadow of the Colossus movie

6 posts in this topic

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-05-23-sony-developing-shadow-of-the-colossus-movie

A movie based on Team Ico's beloved PlayStation 2 adventure Shadow of the Colossus is currently in the works at Sony Pictures, according to a Deadline report.

Josh Trank, the man behind this year's solid found-footage superhero flick Chronicle, has signed on to direct the live action adaptation and is currently looking for a scriptwriter.

No indication was offered as to when the film might arrive in cinemas or who might be cast in the leading roles.

For the uninitiated, the 2005 game tells the story of a young man who sets out on a quest to slay 16 giants in an attempt to revive a girl named Mono.

Trank is apparently a huge fan of Team Ico's work and deliberately sought out the project.

The game recently saw an HD re-release on PlayStation 3, picking up a 9/10 from Eurogamer's Christian Donlan. See the full Shadow of the Colossus HD review for details.

If Sony can't get a frigging Uncharted film off the ground there's no way this would get made.

Not sure if I'd want to see this in movie form anyway. It'd need some deep changes/additions. The narrative is perfect for a video game but it isn't nearly enough to carry a movie. I'm not against changes inherently but I love Shadow for very specific reasons and I'm not sure those could successfully be put on screen, it'd have to change into something else entirely.

Unless they'd go full-on "artsy" with it. Which would be amazing.

It's been in development for a long while now and Josh Trank is being pulled in many directions. I don't think it'll happen.

Why not just put their resources to actually finish The Last Guardian? WTF happened to Team Ico this generation?

The film adaptation has nothing to do with Team ICO.

I don't see how this would work as a film.

Hell it hardly worked as a game!
