  • Sony Losing the Game


    The Los Angeles Times is comparing Sony’s game division to the New York Yankees. “Both have high-paid talent and great offenses but are straining to win this year,” says today’s article by LA Times staff writers Alex Pham and Bruce Wallace.

  • Skinny PS3 In 2008…More Like 2009, Bummer


    The PS3 is a bit husky and everyone knows it, especially Sony. The next-gen gaming console has yet to be launched in Europe and Australia, but Sony is already hard at work on the next generation of the PS3. A statement released by HQ in Japan states that Sony expects to make the transition from 90-nm chips to 45-nm chips in 2008 or early 2009. We all know Sony’s track record regarding… Read More

  • $2500 PS3 Coming?

    Jumping jeepers, I thought Sony took Kutaragi off direct management of the PS3 because of stuff like this? As it turns out, Kutaragi is “promising” an “AV-centric” PlayStation 3, which will be used for media capabilities other than gaming. The next PS3 not only carries a hefty price of $2,500, it also features a power supply unit, anti-shake insulator, twice the memory… Read More

  • More Scaling Problems With PS3

    While Sony sorted out its problems manufacturing enough PlayStation 3s to keep up with demand, it seems like it still hasn’t decided to clean things up for the early adopters of the PS3. It turns out PS2 and PSOne games aren’t scaled down correctly by the PS3, leaving artifacts and jagged edges in games that previously had clean graphics. The best example in the video is the footage… Read More

  • PlayStation 3 Consoles On The Way

    While initial day-one launch shipment goals weren’t achievable due to early manufacturing issues, those problems have been resolved and we do remain focused on having one million PS3s in the pipeline by December 31, 2006. – David Karraker, Communications Boss of SCEA If you’ve been wanting to get your hands on a PS3 without having to camp out overnight of over pay for one… Read More

  • Sony Only Gets Out 197,000 PS3s

    There’s no way that Sony will make its forecast for 1 million units in the U.S. this calendar year - NDP Group Before the PlayStation 3 was released on Nov. 17, Sony had promised the public 400,000 PS3 units on launch day. NDP Group has done some research, and as it turns out, Sony only got out 197,000 units on launch day. This explains all the crazed events that took place the week of… Read More

  • Sony Does Well, Sorta

    When I first purchased a Sony PSP, all I wanted to do was play classic PSOne games on it. Needless to say, I’ve been fairly disappointed since games like Final Fantasy VII and Xenogears never got ported over to the PSP. Fortunately, Sony has taken measures to change that by allowing users to download PSOne games off of the online PlayStation Store. Right now you can download Tekken 2… Read More

  • Sony Has Faith In PlayStation 3

    We were worried Sony might be a little thrown back with all the bad press the PlayStation 3 is receiving. I mean, changing the console’s management staff two weeks after the console was released isn’t the best of signs now, is it? Well, Sony stands strong behind its new console claiming the PlayStation 3 has even more processing power than it first claimed, and it’s… Read More

  • Holiday Buyers Guide 2006: Console Gaming

With so many consoles on the market, and even more games to choose from, choosing the right console and right games can become a difficult task. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 give you cutting edge high definition graphics, the Nintendo Wii gives you… Read More

  • PlayStation Update + SIXAXIS Problems

    Sony PlayStation 3 users are reporting their SIXAXIS controllers are no longer detected by their PS3s. To get the controller to be recognized again by the console, users have to repeatedly plug in the controller via USB to sync it to the console. I haven’t had problems with this yet, but it could be a bug that came in when users downloaded the new 1.11 firmware update that was… Read More

  • Get A PlayStation 3 On Black Friday

    The PlayStation 3 has been getting pummeled this week. Personally, I really don’t feel it’s that bad of a console. When Xbox 360 first launched, it really only had one good game: Perfect Dark Zero. PlayStation 3 faces the same predicament with Resistance: Fall of Man. Sure, there are problems with the interface and with Buy-Ray playback, but the console hasn’t even been out for… Read More

  • Sony To Replace Dead SIXAXIS (If They Ever Die)

    Yesterday, it was revealed that the battery found inside the PS3 controller will not be replaceable. It is rechargable, but once the battery really runs out, you’ll have to pony up $49.99 for another one. Fanboys were angered, mobs raised their fists in anger. Then today comes along and we find that Sony plans to replace your old SIXAXIS (as it’s affectionally called) if it… Read More

  • Sony Says: You'll Get Composite And Like It

    If you had plans to pick up a PS3, run home and connect it to your HDTV for some high-def Blue-ray and/or gaming good times, make sure you pick up an HDMI or component cable before you leave the store. That’s right, Sony’s only including a composite cable in the box with the PS3. According to a report on IGN, “purchasers of either the 60 Gig or 20 Gig models will get a… Read More
