  • PSP firmware v5.0 flawed, v5.01 coming soon, says Sony

    http://www.viddler.com/simple_on_site/e3cc97f7 Good afternoon, PSP owners. If you have yourself an 8GB or 16GB Memory Stick Pro Duo and have had some issues downloading content from the PlayStation store then you’re not alone. For some reason you’ll be prompted that your memory card doesn’t have enough room when, in fact, it probably does. Sony will be pushing out an update… Read More

  • PSP-3000 screen defects a hardware feature, no way to fix 'em

    PSP-3000 screen defects a hardware feature, no way to fix 'em

    It is with a heavy heart that I bring this awful, terrible news: those scanlines and other screen defects discovered in the PSP-3000? Sony totally meant for that to happen. To borrow a Slashdotism, it’s a feature not a bug. Sony Japan said this: PSP-3000 has a new LCD device with vastly improved picture quality, achieving a more natural and vivid picture than older models. By improving LCD… Read More

  • Video: PSP accessing PlayStation store demo

    http://www.viddler.com/simple_on_site/e3cc97f7 Here’s a demo of the PSP accessing the PlayStation store in case you guys haven’t hacked your PSP and want to legally download games. On a side note, I’m thoroughly enjoying EA’s NCAA Football 09. My Beavs are kicking ass! Read More

  • PS3 and PSP updates enable much newness

    PS3 and PSP updates enable much newness

    The latest updates for the PS3 and PSP adds a pretty fair amount of useful functionality. You can customize when your PS3 and controllers go to sleep, and can set your PS3 to shut down after finishing a big download. There’s support for the new SOCOM bluetooth headset, you can now see more info on friends who aren’t online, and you can take screenshots in-game now, if the game so… Read More

    It's true: PSP getting DualShock 3 compatibility

    Sweet. Sony has revealed upcoming software for the PSP that will allow PSP owners to hook up their handhelds to their PS3 DualShock 3 controllers for some dual-analog and rumble action. However, PSP Plus only supports Resistance Retribution at the moment, says Joystiq. Read More

  • PlayStation Store coming to the PSP

    PlayStation Store coming to the PSP

    This was surely in the works long before Nintendo made their DSi announcement, but I’ll be damned if Sony wasn’t a little PO’d about Nintendo stealing some of their thunder. Come October 15, in Japan, you’ll have access to all sorts of downloadable content and service. All forthcoming UMD titles from Sony Japan will come in downloadable form as well. Some titles will be… Read More

  • PSP firmware v5 will surely save the platform from extinction

    There’s not a lot of content in this video of PSP firmware v5.0 but you can expect to see the PSN store, a new RSS reader, and a snapshot tool for taking screenshots of games. Pretty exciting, right? More importantly, a firmware upgrade will ensure that PSP hackers will have to spend a few minutes hacking this version of the software and then go back to drinking Mountain Dew and eating Gamer… Read More

  • Xbox 360 sales beat out PS3 in Japan for the first time, Nintendo still kicking ass

    Xbox 360 sales beat out PS3 in Japan for the first time, Nintendo still kicking ass

    September was a monumental month for Microsoft in Japan. The Xbox 360 console sold 53,547 units to Sony’s 33,071 units sold. But Nintendo’s Wii sales practically doubled that of the 360 with 109,548 units sold. The boost in sales for the 360 had a lot to do with the recent price cut and the launch of Square Enix’s Infinite Undiscovery, says Reuters. The now outdated DS sold… Read More

  • Sony sayz PS3 & PSP are selling very well

    Sony sayz PS3 & PSP are selling very well

    The looming – or is it already here? - economic crisis is going to hurt most CE companies this Christmas season. Sony is stating though that the company is on track with 30% better sales than originally thought and even with slow holiday sales, the PS3 will hit the expectations. That means the PS3 will sell 10 million units by March of ’09 with the PSP sales hitting the slightly… Read More

  • Sony assures us PSP 3rd-party support will improve next year

    Sony assures us PSP 3rd-party support will improve next year

    According to SCEA’s Director of Hardware Marketing John Koller (an objective source if I ever heard of one), the recent slump in PSP releases is a sort of ripple effect from poor hardware sales “20-22 months ago,” which is one of those over-specific assessments that reeks of specious market research. Kind of like how they are now counting on young mothers as the latest hot… Read More
