CESA calculates gaming industry losses due to portable piracy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2628 days, 16 hours, 5 minutes ago
Monday, June 07, 2010 7:00:35 AM GMT
Japan's Computer Entertainment Suppliers Association recently conducted a study of the the world's 114 most popular sites for illegal game downloads in order to get a rough estimate on how much the industry has lost due to software piracy. The results aren't pretty: According to Andriasang's report on the group's calculations, piracy on the DS and PSP alone between 2004 and 2009 cost the worldwide games industry roughly 3.816 trillion yen, or around $41.7 billion. Join us in a "holy crap," won't you? Hol... (more)

Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:26:17 AM GMT
It slices! It dices! It reduces your enemies to unrecognizable blobs of primordial goop! And now, thanks to the latest trailer for Raven and Activision's temporally unstable shooter Singularity, another feature of the handy Time Manipulation Device has been revealed: It grants the user complete control over the forces of gravity. It's official: This is the raddest glove ever. (more)

New Vanquish trailer shoots, explodes, flips and then explodes again

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2629 days, 14 hours, 40 minutes ago
Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:25:37 AM GMT
Based on what we know of the studio's previous offerings, we imagine that somewhere at Platinum Games HQ, there's a keyboard with just five buttons, labeled "Explosion," "Laser," "Ninja Flip," "Giant Robot" and "Overly Dramatic Dialogue." In the case of the most recent trailer for Vanquish, we're pretty sure some Platinum designer, made weary from a long day of toil, fell asleep on said keyboard, filling the trailer with dangerous amounts of these five crucial elements.

John Daly's ProStroke Golf gets Move support

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2632 days, 14 hours, 31 minutes ago
Thursday, June 03, 2010 8:34:51 AM GMT
Small-time publisher O-Games announced its take on the world's oldest sport, John Daly's ProStroke Golf, in May to little fanfare. However, MCVUK reports that the title's developer, Gusto Games, recently made a decision which should garner a bit of attention: The PS3 version of the game will now be compatible with the PlayStation Move.

Confirmed: Michael Jordan is NBA 2K11 cover athlete

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2632 days, 14 hours, 38 minutes ago
Thursday, June 03, 2010 8:27:14 AM GMT
As first outed by ESPN last week, basketball hall of famer Michael Jordan is coming out of retirement again, this time to feature on the cover of 2K Sports' NBA 2K11. Jason Argent, the label's VP of marketing, confirmed the deal to CNBC today, saying that, "Actually getting this done is the most ridiculous win of all-time." (more)

Nielsen recently conducted a survey of 700 potential PS3 owners aged 7-54. The research firm asked these people why they were considering buying a PS3 and the top three reasons they received in response were the Blu-ray player, the recent price drop and the games available. (more)

No cloud, nor squall shall hinder Final Fantasy IX's release to PSN

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2658 days, 15 hours, 47 minutes ago
Saturday, May 08, 2010 7:18:21 AM GMT
Ask anybody who was old enough to go through the life cycle of the first PlayStation and they'll likely have an opinion on which Final Fantasy was the best. And "soon," a whole new generation will be able to engage in that most stimulating of debates, with the PlayStation Blog confirming that Final Fantasy IX will be the third "proper" PlayStation-era Final Fantasy game available for download on PSN, joining siblings Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII.

Sony selling 'PlayStation Protection Plan' warranty extension for PS3, PSP

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2662 days, 15 hours, 51 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 04, 2010 7:14:21 AM GMT
Sony makes some pretty resilient game consoles, and while you'll certainly hear about the occasional glitch, they aren't exactly plagued with RRoD. That said, there's always room for worry, and if you're willing to pay for peace of mind, Sony has a brand-new service agreement with your name on it (more)

Ten Minute Taste: Kick-Ass (PSN)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2664 days, 2 hours, 42 minutes ago
Sunday, May 02, 2010 8:23:09 PM GMT
Frozen Codebase's Kick-Ass just hit the PlayStation Network yesterday, and here are the first ten minutes of the game. Available as a download-only PS3-exclusive, the game is based on both the recent film and the comic series, borrowing more heavily from the former. It plays like your basic role-playing game beat 'em up, similar to Activision's Marvel Ultimate Alliance series. Players can choose from one of three characters -- Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy -- earning experience points to level up de... (more)

Crappy Demo No One Wanted May Be Worth a Ton Now [Update]

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2664 days, 3 hours, 22 minutes ago
Sunday, May 02, 2010 7:43:50 PM GMT
At the 1998 NBA All-Star Game, fans received discs with the demo for a PlayStation game called NBA 2-Ball. The game was pretty bad - possibly defective - but it's extremely rare. So a surviving copy may be extremely valuable. A New Jersey man provided pictures of the disc to a blog that a while ago had written about NBA 2-Ball, which runs on "the awful NBA Jam Extreme engine," so it wasn't much fun to gamers, and was utterly useless to those without a PlayStation. Most folks threw the discs away. Only t... (more)

PS3 firmware 3.30 sneaks in remote play from PC, bitstream audio options

Monday, April 26, 2010 5:18:46 AM GMT
Additional trophy sorting and 3D gaming readiness should have been enough to satisfy and PS3 owner after the latest v3.30 system update (hey, at least it didn't take anything away this time) but there's a couple other surprises in store. If you're the kind of person who loves (or hates) their beeps and bloops, there's a toggle for Bitstream Direct (output audio with the original digital signal prioritized) or Mix (mixed with sound effects such as button sounds and then converted to bitstream format) on B...

PlayStation 3's 3D implementation explained, may require upscaling and reduction in detail to work

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2673 days, 3 hours, 6 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 7:59:47 PM GMT
It was only a couple of days ago that Sony flicked the switch on 3D compatibility for the PS3 -- albeit without retail games that can yet exploit it -- so what better time to dig into the nitty gritty details of the company's implementation of the third dimension? Digital Foundry have done just that, starting off with a discussion of how Sony translated WipEout HD from 2D into 3D. (more)

Watch live baseball in HD on your PS3 with MLB.TV app

Thursday, April 22, 2010 7:26:22 PM GMT
So, this is pretty damn awesome if you're a PS3-owning die-hard baseball fan. Today, Sony announced an MLB.TV app for the PS3. The application, which is native to the XMB once installed (unlike Netflix), will allow MLB.TV subscribers in the U.S. and Canada to extend their viewing experience from their computers to their couches. It's unprecedented for a game console, but hey -- the PS3 only does everything, right? (more)

It's been over a year since the release of Devil May Cry 4, with little news regarding the future of the franchise in the meantime.

PlayStation Move sub-controller hits FCC, will be named Navigation Controller

Monday, April 12, 2010 8:46:17 AM GMT
Wondering what Sony's going to call that PlayStation Move sub-controller -- you know, since "nunchuk" is already taken? Wonder no more. Sony part number CECH-ZCS1U just hit the FCC's database, and "Navigation Controller" is written in nice bold letters right there on the label. It's looking like this is official, as the Sony US website has been quietly updated with the change, and we think it makes a certain amount of sense, as most 3D games let you aim the camera with your dominant hand and relegate nav...
