Sony should just announce inFamous 2 already

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 20 hours, 25 minutes ago
Friday, April 30, 2010 7:26:19 PM GMT
inFamous 2, Sony's second worst kept secret since Killzone 3, has re-emerged thanks to the discovery of a freshly registered domain for the game. Sony has reserved "infamous2thegame.com" for unannounced purposes. and at the risk of taking something too literally, we're pretty sure the domain is for inFamous 2, the game. (more)

Man files class action suit over PS3 Other OS support removal

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2617 days, 7 hours, 40 minutes ago
Friday, April 30, 2010 8:10:53 AM GMT
Worried that Sony was going to get off lightly, only suffering the slings and arrows of a few angry commenters after removing the PS3's support for other operating systems like Linux? You might endorse the actions of Anthony Ventura, who recently filed a class action lawsuit against the company, claiming its actions represent a breach of contract, false advertising and a handful of other unsavory, unscrupulous business practices.

Firm: Sony Brand Less Valuable than Microsoft, Cigarettes, Beer, Toothpaste

Thursday, April 29, 2010 6:03:03 AM GMT
Millward Brown Optimor, a "global brand strategy" analyst firm, just stepped into a heaping pile of fanboy doodoo with its latest rankings of the 100 most valuable brands in the world, pegging Sony at 94th. Nintendo is 32nd, Microsoft fourth. (more)

Sony teases VAIO Ultra Mobile, Clippy chuffed

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2619 days, 6 hours, 57 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 8:53:42 AM GMT
Interesting. Sony's teasing a new VAIO "Ultra Mobile" in Japan. No idea what this could be: refreshed VAIO X lappie, VAIO P netbook, or a new take on its venerable VAIO UX micro PC? With Intel's Moorestown just around the corner we're leaning towards the latter, hoping for it anyway -- Sony doesn't tease just any old product without good reason. Oh, wait. (more)

LittleBigPlanet PSP 'Turbo Pack' dons its hard hat

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2621 days, 10 hours, 8 minutes ago
Monday, April 26, 2010 5:42:41 AM GMT
If you've been keeping up with the upcoming content expansion for LittleBigPlanet on the PSP, you've already heard about its new stock car racing-inspired tracks and vehicles. However, a new Media Molecule dev diary has revealed the DLC will not only allow players to race, but also to create. Oh, wait. They could already do that, couldn't they? To clarify, it will give Sackpeople a whole slew of construction-based vehicles, such as forklifts, cranes and cement mixers. (more)

Finding a new dimension for gaming at the 3D Gaming Summit

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2621 days, 10 hours, 9 minutes ago
Monday, April 26, 2010 5:41:48 AM GMT
A small crowd of movie and game producers met this week at Universal City in Los Angeles for the first-ever 3D Gaming Summit, to sit down and discuss the trend of 3D imaging in gaming and film. Much of the talk at the summit was speculative -- with almost no actual consumer devices on the market and nearly none within price range of the average consumer anyway, gaming in 3D isn't much more than an idea at this point. Most of the technology companies in attendance are still working to get content producer... (more)

Sony Dash spotted on shelf at Best Buy a few days early

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2621 days, 10 hours, 37 minutes ago
Monday, April 26, 2010 5:13:58 AM GMT
Now, what do you know about that? Our very own Chris Ziegler stopped into Best Buy (undoubtedly right after leaving CB2) and spotted something we didn't expect to see just yet... the Sony Dash. That's right, the Dash - which is available for pre-order but wasn't supposed to hit retail until April 29th -- is already on the shelf. Now, there was only one unit available and it was just squeezed in between some other wares, so we're not sure if it was put out by accident or what, but if you're really dying t... (more)

'Project K' screenshots surface, look too good

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2623 days, 17 hours, 56 minutes ago
Friday, April 23, 2010 9:54:52 PM GMT
This isn't a screenshot from Yakuza 3 or 4. Nope, this is "Project K," an upcoming Yakuza spinoff for the PSP. Famitsu has the first screenshots of the game in action, and we have to admit, that they look a bit too good to be true. At first glance, it's easy to mistake this screen for a photograph of a Japanese city. Assuming these screens haven't been touched up in any way, we're glad to see the PSP is still being pushed technologically by developers. Even if you aren't particularly interested in the ... (more)

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

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2623 days, 19 hours, 51 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)

Gran Turismo Creator Takes To Top Gear's Test Track

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2624 days, 20 hours, 33 minutes ago
Thursday, April 22, 2010 7:18:06 PM GMT
Continuing a partnership begun with the game's prologue, Gran Turismo 5 is once again teaming up with British TV series Top Gear, with the inclusion of the show's famous test track in Sony's PS3 racer. Die-hard fans of the game (or show) may remember a fleeting promise of this all the way back in 2007, but having recently been measured on the ground and photographed from the air over the course of four days, the track - which is used on the show to test cars as well as the driving skills of celebrities -...

PS3 Final Fight: Double Impact requires PSN connection

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2625 days, 19 hours, 24 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 8:26:53 PM GMT
Final Fight: Double Impact may be a collection of retro games, but some owners of the PS3 version have discovered that it is, at heart, a little too modern. The game will not run unless the user is signed into an online PSN account. If you try to load up Double Impact while not signed in, you'll just get a curt "Sign into PlayStation Network. (80029516)" message on the screen. (The Xbox 360 version launches without issue, even when not signed into Xbox Live.) (more)

ModNation Racers PSP track editor works as it should

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2627 days, 22 hours, 8 minutes ago
Monday, April 19, 2010 5:43:23 PM GMT
A new video on the PlayStation.Blog (posted after the break) showcases how easy it is to use the track editor featured in the PSP version of ModNation Racers. In fact, it works nearly the same way as the PS3 version. Yes, there are a few caveats (for example, the auto-complete feature is much more intelligent on the console). However, the track editor gives you all the bells, whistles and launch pads you'll need to create a fun race for portable players. (more)

GameStop offering God of War 3 for under $40

God of War 3 has already received a $10 cut to its regular price at Amazon and GameStop, but we'd surely anger the consumer gods by not mentioning that there's another $11.75 in discounts to be had. Gamerdeals.net points out that bargain warriors who enter the following codes when buying Kratos' conclusion from GameStop will receive a further price slashing. (more)

Sony releasing PSP Minis-esque collection in Japan

Saturday, April 17, 2010 7:11:24 PM GMT
Sony has announced an initiative to bring inexpensive, smaller PSP gaming experiences to the Japanese PlayStation Store. You're probably thinking, "wow, that sounds a lot like the PSP Minis that are currently available in the U.S. and Europe!" While you're not too far off, we feel it pertinent to note that these games will be infinitely more awesome -- if their intoxicatingly brilliant titles are any indication. (more)

Sony has announced that their first wave of 3D PlayStation 3 games will be launching in June, along with their first 3D-capable television, the Sony HX803. This model will be of particular interest to gamers as Sony also announced it'll come (at least in Europe) with a voucher to download four entire 3D-capable PlayStation 3 games from the PlayStation Network.

Let's go back a couple of years, to E3 2008. At the Microsoft Press Conference, the company drops the news that Square Enix has agreed to release Final Fantasy XIII simultaneously on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. There is much cheering and/or weeping and gnashing of teeth, depending on which side of the console wars you are on. (more)

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

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2635 days, 7 hours, 5 minutes ago
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...

That's not at all what PS3 singing game SingStar's new Online Battle Mode is, though. With a new downloadable update, you can now pick the Online Battle option. From there you'll be able to pick an opponent from your friends list. You'll send an invite and choose a song that you both have access to, and then you'll go at it. You'll be able to see your opponent's score live, as well as see them singing via the PlayStation Eye. (more)
