» Sony Patents Emotion Engine Emulation Technology For Cell Processors
Article posted by XanTium | 1-7-2009 22:02 | Permalink | Digg News

From siliconera.com:
[QUOTE]
PlayStation 3s without PS2 backwards compatibility are missing the Emotion Engine, a chip Sony designed as the PS2's CPU. What if the PS3's cell processor could emulate the Emotion Engine? Theoretically, all PlayStation 3s would be able to play PS2 games even if a console didn't have the proper hardware. According to a recent patent filed by Sony Computer Entertainment in the US, Sony has the code and technology ready to do this.

There are two main ways to emulate hardware. Interpretation is when target code is decoded and converted into a language the host can understand. The other strategy is to decode and recompile programs in the host's language.

Maybe the concept is better explained another way. Interpretation is like having someone constantly translating English to Japanese for you, non stop, twenty four hours a day wherever you go. Decoding and recompiling is like someone translating a sets of words and putting them in a dictionary you can reference.

» Sony placing PS3 slim manufacturing orders for delivery in July?
Article posted by XanTium | 1-7-2009 22:00 | Permalink | Digg News

From engadget.com:
[QUOTE]
We haven't heard much about the PS3 slim since E3, but that doesn't mean it's been entirely quiet out there -- the hot rumor today is that Sony's signed manufacturing agreements with both Foxconn and Pegatron to build the revised model in time for July delivery.

» Rumored PS3 Firmware 3.0 Details Emerge
Article posted by XanTium | 26-6-2009 22:24 | Permalink | Digg News

From 1up.com:
[QUOTE]
The PlayStation 3 may be receiving a large firmware update this fall, according to a rumor from VG247. The firmware 3.0 update is said to be "a huge overhaul" and was compared to the Xbox 360's NXE in some respects. The new features are said to include a reputation system that will allow users to evaluate each other and view the reps of other players. No doubt aiding in the reputation system will be a "grief reporting system," allowing players to take pictures of offensive users and report them to Sony.

Other features may allow background downloads of game patches, and simultaneous HDMI and digital optical output for audiophiles. The update is reportedly planned to hit before Christmas.

» Arstechnica Mole: PS3 price drops coming this fall
Article posted by XanTium | 26-6-2009 22:22 | Permalink | Digg News

From arstechnica.com:
[QUOTE]
Our favorite inside source has given us a heads-up on what to expect from both Sony and Microsoft this year in hardware packages and pricing.

The 80GB model is going to see some serious hardware constraints in the weeks ahead, and retailers have about 60 days worth of inventory before the systems will become hard to find. Expect to see many more 160GB units on store shelves. Those units have no constraints yet, but if the retailers sell through that supply as quickly as they did the 80GB, Sony is in a good place for the final part of its plan in 2009: dropping the price of hardware and launching the PS3 Slim in the fall.

We have absolutely no information on what to expect from that price drop, so we don't know how large it will be... yet. Still, hearing confirmation from the Mole that it's coming is great news.

» What Happened to the PS3 Slim Rumor?
Article posted by XanTium | 4-6-2009 22:11 | Permalink | Digg News

From ubergizmo.com:
[QUOTE]
The Sony Press Conference was arguably as impressive as the Microsoft one (which was a huge surprise, by the way). Many PlayStation fans were ecstatic about the upcoming Sony Motion Controller and there was one last thing that they were hoping for: a price cut for the PS3. It didn't happen of course. So, what happened to the PS3 Slim rumors?

Apparently nothing, but don't dismiss it quite yet. For one, big price cuts usually come at the end of the year. Secondly, while Sony is fighting to get some market share, it would be really dumb to announce a cost-reduced version coming later in the year. In all likelihood, Sony will avoid talking about any cost-reduction to avoid stalling the sales of current PS3 models.

And because Sony doesn't want to alienate their retail partners, they will probably help them sell current models before an upcoming one shows up, so keep your eyes open for stocking/availability issues. We're not confirming that the PS3 slim exists - it is just a rumor- but it is about certain that eventually the PS3 price will come down. It is a matter of when.

» Sony: E3 Not Proper Venue To Announce Any PS3 Price Drop
Article posted by XanTium | 4-6-2009 21:12 | Permalink | Digg News

From kotaku.com:
[QUOTE]
Despite expectations that Sony would lower the price of the PS3 at E3, the company announced no price drop at the big show. We asked why.

"From our perspective, this show is all about content," Sony's head of PlayStation marketing in the U.S., Peter Dille, told Kotaku in an interview yesterday. "We believe that our content story is unrivaled. It's really a relentless line-up of great exclusive games that will speak volumes to the value inherent in the PS3. Obviously people come to E3 expecting all sorts of announces. We've got a plan in place for the platform. A price drop at the show wasn't part of it."

» E3: It's official - Metal Gear Solid Rising confirmed for PS3 and PC

It was just a rumor earlier this week but now it's official. During Konami's E3 2009 press conference this week they indeed confirmed that Metal Gear Solid Rising will be released for the PC as well as the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles. Other than the fact that the game will feature Raiden as the main character no other info on the title was announced (no release date either).

» Things Unmentioned At The Sony Press Conference

From kotaku.com:
[QUOTE]
These are the things we thought Sony would or should mention at their E3 2009 press conference, but didn't:

* PS3 Slim: If you're going to show all the other things that leaked in the weeks before the Sony press conference then why not show us the rumored PS3 Slim? Or was that the one leak that was fake?

* Metal Gear Solid Rising: Unless we were supposed to think that Metal Gear Solid Rising was an Xbox 360 exclusive, then why not mention or show clips or even a logo of Kojima Productions' newly-announced game?

* Price Drop: No? Not yet?

Article posted by XanTium | 3-6-2009 16:56 | Permalink | Digg News

From the press release:
[QUOTE]
Sony Computer Entertainment America, Inc. (SCEA) announced today major enhancements to PlayStation®Network, expanding on SCEA's commitment to give users a comprehensive entertainment experience. The video delivery service for the PSP® (PlayStation® Portable) system launches today in coordination with a new line-up of premier Hollywood, Anime and Sports partners. In addition, Media Go, a free application that makes it easier to manage digital content including games, photos, videos and music for the PSP system through a PC will also become available. These enhancements give new entertainment possibilities for PSP system owners, providing direct downloadable access to games, demos and trailers, as well as movies and television shows via the PlayStation®Store on PlayStation Network. New game content will also be added to an existing library of more than 200 downloadable games on the PlayStation Store today, including much anticipated titles Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake, Gravity Crash™, Hustle Kings™ and more than 60 PS one® Classics hitting the PlayStation Store by the end of the year.

"PlayStation Network has experienced a high growth year and today we're excited to add new content partners such as Showtime, G4 & E!, Magnolia Films, and TNA to our family. In addition to extending our content offerings and expanding with new features like Media Go, we continue to bring relevant and compelling content via original games and programming to our users," said Peter Dille, senior vice president marketing and PlayStation Network, SCEA. "Gamers will be pleased to find new games for all genres and interests with original titles Fat Princess and Gravity Crash, in addition to many PS one Classics such as Final Fantasy VII coming to PlayStation Network this year."

* Video Delivery Service
PSP system users now have direct access to PlayStation Network's video delivery service, where they can download their favorite movie and television programs and take with them on-the-go. In addition, the video delivery service is announcing content from 16 new premier partners in Hollywood, anime and sports. Hollywood content partners include Showtime Networks Inc., Starz Media, - for Film, TV and Manga Anime, G4 and E!, Summit Entertainment, The Weinstein Company, HDnet and Magnolia Pictures. Anime partners include, Anime Network, Media Blasters, Right Stuf's Nozomi Entertainment, Starz Media's Manga Entertainment, Toei Animation, Viz Media and WEP. FUNimation Entertainment will also be a part of a new anime category on the video delivery service. Sports partners include HDNet Fights, UFC, Wrestling from TNA and Video Action Sports.

Premier Hollywood content will include hit films such as Overture Films "Righteous Kill," Summit Entertainment "Twilight" and The Weinstein Company "Zack & Miri Make a Porno." PlayStation Store will also feature TV shows such as Showtime Networks Inc.'s "Dexter," E!'s "The Soup," G4's "X-Play" and Starz Media's "Painkiller Jane." A new anime channel will also launch in both the TV and film sections of the video store and will feature the best in anime content, including Anime Network's "Appleseed," Starz Media Manga Entertainment's "Dead Space." Toei Animation's "Fist of the North Star," Viz Media's "Naruto" and WEP's "Voltron." Some of the new sports content will include bouts from HDNet Fight's "Inside MMA," wrestling from TNA's "iMPACT!," UFC PPV events and Video Action Sports' "That's It, That's All."

With the addition of these new partners, the video delivery service will have nearly 1900 movies and 9400 TV episodes, covering reality, mixed martial arts, sports, anime, manga and animation genres. For one price, PlayStation users can watch standard definition (SD) video content from the comfort of their home television on the PS3 system or at their convenience on-the-go with the PSP system. PlayStation Store offers a combined total of nearly 9,000 hours of video content, with more than 35 % percent of the movies in High Definition. Through the PS3 and PSP systems users can access a unique three-in-one entertainment package unlike any other - the ability to enjoy high-definition Blu-ray movies, groundbreaking games, and downloadable video content from one platform and one service.

With the launch of the video delivery service for the PSP system, Media Manager for PC is being replaced with Media Go. Media Go is a free application that makes it easier and more convenient for consumers to manage their PSP games, photos, videos and music on their PC and provides access to PlayStation Store.

* Games
Several PlayStation Network titles for both the PS3 and PSP systems were announced at E3, adding to the robust lineup of over 200 downloadable games available for PlayStation Store. For the PS3 system, Gravity Crash from developer Just Add Water melds a vintage gravity based arcade shooter with High Definition (HD) graphics, and Hustle Kings, from VooFoo Studios, is the PS3 system's first photorealistic billiards simulator. For the PSP system, Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake brings a fun and strategic medieval battle royale unlike anything seen before on the portable system. In addition, the PlayStation Store will deliver more than 60 PS one Classics by the end of the year and will launch Final Fantasy VII and Medal of Honor on PlayStation Store today.
Starting this fall, many PSP titles that will be launched on UMD will also be offered digitally on PlayStation Store in North America. This will add nearly 300 games from the PSP system's library available for download through PlayStation Network.

PlayStation Network is built on a legacy of gaming and continues to expand into a premier entertainment platform with innovative and compelling content options for people to enjoy on multiple devices.
