Sony has announced that the PlayStation 3 game console has hit a significant milestone for sales around the world. The company says that the device has reached 80 million units sold around the world since it launched in November of 2006.
Sorry NVIDIA, but it looks like the Shield is already obsolete. It’s not because of the Ghetto Shield, it’s because of the Cross Plane. Developed by three videogame console modders who founded a new company called Advanced Gaming Innovations (AGI), the Cross Plane streams HDMI input from and sends controller output to a PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and the Ouya.
The very talented case modder Javier Riquelme customized several PlayStation 3 consoles for Sony, who in turn gave them as gifts to its partner developers and publishers. With the exception of what seems to be Javier’s trademark flourish, each console looks radically different and suited to its theme.
The first four models of the PS3 were backwards compatible with PlayStation 2 games. For reasons unknown, but most likely not related to its customer’s best interests, Sony later removed this feature. Now, the inevitable has occurred: tinkerers have brought the feature back via a software hack.

After all of the different hacked LEGO USB minifig flash drives out there, LEGO has released official USB minifigs, and they look pretty good. They can only store up to 2GB, but the flash drive is hidden inside the minifig.
The Kinect has gotten a lot of love from the hacker community on the PC, but what about the PlayStation Move?
While not quite as revolutionary as Microsoft’s answer to motion gaming, the Move’s true 1:1 movement tracking can make for some fun.
This unusual new game from Sony puts you in the role of a giant beast, roaming through town, stomping on buildings, and yes, eating citizens. Yum.
With a name like Eat Them!, would you expect anything less?
Here’s a sharp contrast to the Kinect demo I talked about yesterday. IGN’s Executive Editor Greg Miller got to try out the PlayStation Move. Unfortunately Miller only had a tech demo with him, unlike yesterday where we saw some wonderful graphics courtesy of Forza.
Atlus’ Zeldariffic action-adventure-comedy RPG 3D Dot Game Heroes is already out, and the user-created heroes are already starting to pour in at the official Hall of Heroes, where people who own the game can upload and download said creations.
Looks like modder Ben Heck is at it once again. He’s cranked out yet another of his wondrous console casemods – this time it’s a new variation on his earlier PS3 Slim laptop.
