PSA: Sony says counterfeit PS3 controllers could explode

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2638 days, 23 hours, 28 minutes ago
Friday, September 24, 2010 10:20:55 PM GMT
We're not sure why anyone would buy a knock-off DualShock 3 or SIXAXIS gamepad, considering the trouble Sony's taken to make sure they don't work, but the PlayStation 3 manufacturer has another reason you might want to steer clear of counterfeit pads -- they could be tiny Li-ion bombs poised to explode. Talk about force feedback! Yes, the company that brought us exploding laptop batteries says that third-party products "which are practically identical in appearance to genuine PlayStation®3 wireless cont... (more)

DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim] FINAL FANTASY preview: a sensible sequel

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2643 days, 14 hours, 30 minutes ago
Monday, September 20, 2010 7:18:58 AM GMT
DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim] FINAL FANTASY may have a bizarre, head-scratching title, but its brand new features make a whole lot of sense. The follow-up to 2008's mash-up fighter offers the most obvious addition for a sequel: an expanded roster, including Final Fantasy XIII's Lightning and Final Fantasy VII's Tifa. However, it also includes a number of other features that make the experience more engaging for fans, and more accessible for newcomers to the franchise. (more)

TGS: A better look at the Monster Hunter PSP new nub

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2644 days, 14 hours, 32 minutes ago
Sunday, September 19, 2010 7:17:07 AM GMT
Anyway, here's a better look at the new special PSP that Sony is releasing in for Capcom's Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. We got a closer look at the new nub today. I like that it has a bit of an indention for what looks to be increased thumb comfort. I kind of wish it was rubberized, but this will work. (more)

Sony launches anti-Kinect attack website, yaybuttons.com

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2650 days, 14 hours, 17 minutes ago
Monday, September 13, 2010 7:32:26 AM GMT
Sony's typically the equal-opportunity offender, poking fun at everything from Wii to iPhone, but the company's latest marketing campaign is unmistakably aimed at Microsoft's motion-sensing peripheral. Head on over to www.yaybuttons.com to interact with a two-dimensional PlayStation Move, which will pop out a series of quotes from Kevin Butler -- Sony's fictional VP of Realistic Movements -- explaining Sony's tactile advantages over Microsoft's Kinect. While members of the Sony Defense Force will surely ... (more)

1284332820 Gaming PlayStation Move goes on sale at Best Buy a little early By Nilay Patel posted Sep 12th 2010 7:07PM We're still a couple days away from the PlayStation Move's September 19 launch date, but hey -- who said Best Buy has to follow the rules? One of our readers picked up a Move at a Best Buy in Benton Harbor, Michigan today, and we'd expect the trickle to turn into a flood by the time the "official" launch finally arrives.

Ape Escape for PS3 listed by GameStop, likely a Move game

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2668 days, 14 hours, 8 minutes ago
Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:41:41 AM GMT
Siliconera spotted a GameStop listing for a brand new Ape Escape title coming to the PS3 on November 1 of this year. While Sony actually has two Ape Escape (known in Japan as Saru Getchu) titles on tap, Ape Escape 4 is farther away from release than Ape Escape Fury! Fury!, so this listing probably refers to the latter. (more)

Sony Could Start Banning Hacked, Jailbroken PS3s

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2668 days, 14 hours, 22 minutes ago
Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:27:12 AM GMT
Last week saw Sony's PlayStation 3 console join the Xbox 360 and the Wii in the land of cracked consoles with the availability of a PS3 USB hacking tool that allows owners to crack their consoles and run burned games and homebrew software. However, gamers planning on cracking their console should think carefully about whether or not they're willing to give up the PSN in exchange for pirated games and homebrew software. (more)

Nomura wants Parasite Eve and its sequel on PSN before 3rd Birthday

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2669 days, 15 hours, 16 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:33:02 AM GMT
Were you thinking that right about now would be a good time to make Parasite Eve and Parasite Eve 2 available via PSN, given the upcoming release of the third game in the series on PSP? Then, dear Reader, you have something in common with series character designer Tetsuya Nomura. He recently tweeted that he wants just that: a digital re-release of the PSOne titles, before The 3rd Birthday -- the game whose success could lead to a PS3 title in the series -- hits Japan. (more)

This is a rumor we've heard many times before. With Sony Ericsson regularly associating its phones with other Sony products (the Walkman line for music phones, the Cybershot line for camera phones), it seems like it's only a matter of time before we see a gaming phone linked to the PSP. (more)

PS3 firmware 3.41 updated, hard drive upgrade problems exterminated

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2690 days, 12 hours, 51 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 04, 2010 8:58:10 AM GMT
Sony has rolled out an update to the update, which fixes a major flaw found in version 3.41 of the PS3's firmware. An unintended consequence of the patch was that industrious hard drive upgraders found themselves staring at a disquieting error message when swapping out storage units, but Sony has acted swiftly and the very latest data update does not suffer from the issue. It's somewhat unhelpful that the upgrade-friendly firmware is still called 3.41, but we prefer companies that follow the "fix first, ... (more)

Sony will release "fully localized" versions of Killzone 3 (in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese) and inFamous 2 (in Spanish) in Latin America next year. According to the company, the localization will include "actors, action, dialog, effects and every inch of gameplay." We have no idea how "action" and "effects" are different in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese, but it sounds fascinating. Speaking specifically about inFamous 2, Sony states localization for the region will create new elements that will "... (more)

After a disappointing showing in their annual report for 2009, Sony's PlayStation division is moving back to black with their financials. Nikkei is reporting that the consumer electronics giant will announce a return to profitability when they release second quarter figures on Thursday. This is also in stark contrast to Sony's first quarter performance last year, where the division saw a loss of 25.7 billion yen. (more)
