    LavaGlow PS3 controller: Oh wow, man

    If your PS3 controllers are clashing with your blacklight poster of Zep and your 4-foot bong for tobacco use only then why not drop $34.99 on some LavaGlow PS3 controllers with real lava glowing handles. Are they particularly better than standard controllers? Well, they’re cheaper and they glow, so that’s two pluses right there. They take 3 AAA batteries and a copy of Freedom Rock. Read More

    Playstation 3 developers being begged to stay?

    Take note fellow gamers, as our beloved Sony Playstation 3 may not have as many stellar hits as the PS2 and PS1 had. Apparently Sony is actually begging third-party developers to stay on board and finish PS3 games despite the console’s lack of popularity. I highly agree with this statement from Dean Takahashi of Mercury News: “The argument is that the PS3 will show its strength as… Read More

Need more storage? The 80GB version is taking a dive in price from $599 to $499. Slap another $100 down on a game and a Blu-ray flick and you’re good to go. It’d be nice if Sony… Read More

    Rock Band only available as a bundle at launch

    What’s up with Rock Band? We know, thanks to Peter “Surfing magazine is synonymous with surfing” Ha, that the game will “rock and roll” into our hearts on November 23 for $170. That price includes the game itself, guitar, drums and microphone. Don’t expect the game to be available sans-bundle, however, since the one bundle-only configuration helps keep costs… Read More

    GAME store employee caught stealing PS3 for some reason

    If you’re a trainee manager at a video game store, and you really, really want a PS3, then you shouldn’t be working at a video game store in the first place should wait until you’re a regular staffer and use your employee discount to get one at a discounted rate. Do not be like this idiot in England and try to steal one. They’re the kind of thing that people notice when… Read More

    How would a $400 PS3 affect holiday sales?

    Sales of this, however, are expected to surge While a $400 PS3 still hasn’t officially been announced for North America yet, let’s assume it’s going to happen. Let’s also assume it happens in time for the holiday shopping season. Where would this put Sony, vis-a-vis Microsoft and Nintendo?

  • 40GB PS3 won't do backwards compatibility in hardware, Sony doesn't want to deal with software emulation

    40GB PS3 won't do backwards compatibility in hardware, Sony doesn't want to deal with software emulation

    Now we are all sad clowns Yes, we now know the 40GB is as real as Opie’s sports curse, but there’s a catch: backwards compatibility has taken a hit. Wait, that’s putting it mildly: Sony couldn’t give a damn about backwards compatibility. The system, which will retail for around $400, lacks the PS2 circuitry that made emulation on earlier PS3 models effortless. Now Sony… Read More

    White 40GB PS3 hitting Japan

    As if we didn’t already know about the 40GB PS3 making its debut, we, however, were unaware that a white version would be loosed into the concrete jungles of Japan with DualShock 3 controllers. That’s right, folks, a 40GB console is set for a November 11th launch sans memory card slot and SACD reading function, which means no backwards compatibility. The four USB ports on previous… Read More

  • SEGA Winter Wonderland Event

    SEGA Winter Wonderland Event

    Yesterday, I managed to muster enough strength to drag myself to SEGA’s Winter Wonderland event at the Royalton Hotel in Manhattan. Upon arriving at the Penthouse floor, I saw a few LCD screens setup, all with Xbox 360s or Nintendo Wiis – not one PS3. There were only seven to 10 games total to see and all the coolest ones were under embargo, so the event was pretty lame. Read More

    Guitar Hero 3 gets 16 new tracks

    Activion is pulling out all the stops on Guitar Hero 3. They’ve just announced 16 more tracks for the guitar wielding rock fest. I just wish I didn’t suck at it so much because Sunshine of Your Love by Cream is the shiznit. The Sonic Youth, Dead Kennedys, White Zombie, Aerosmith (!), Bloc Party, Disburbed and The Killers (why? wtf!) have joined the stacked lineup. Hit the jump for the… Read More

There’s also been confirmation that the PS3 appears on Best Buy’s internal database. Whether or not it will be priced at $399.99 is unknown, but It’s been confirmed that it does exist. A… Read More

    AP image Could a $399, 40GB PS3 be on the way in time for the holidays? Well, sure it could, but now people are connecting the dots, citing internal sources and playing out scenes from the movie “All The President’s Men” in the process. Sony recently filed a patent that describes a new model of the PS3. Everything that makes the PS3 worth owning—Blu-ray, wireless… Read More
