The $10 Playstation 3

The $10 Playstation 3
The guys over at Destructoid dug up this $10 beauty. It’s a cheap gaming system which looks NOTHING like Sony’s PlayStation 3, but has the audacity to package itself as a “SONY PS3.” The system actually appears to be one of those shoddy “Famiclone” systems designed to play old games from the Nintendo Entertainment System (aka “Famicom” in Japan.) My favorite part of the packaging has to be the bad Engrish translation that reads “Next System PlayStation Meeting.” For some reason, I don’t think you’ll be able to cram your Blu-ray disks in this one.

PS3 Backwards Compat Whacked for Uk and Australia

PS3 Backwards Compat Whacked for Uk and Australia
Sony has revealed that its PlayStation 3 consoles to be released in UK, Europe, Australia and other countries this Spring will no longer have the Emotion Engine chip on board. This reduces the cost to produce the console, and also will kill much of the PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility found in US and Japanese systems.

Alone in the Dark 5 in Game Footage

Alone in the Dark 5 in Game Footage
The preview footage below pretty much speaks for itself. Atari’s upcoming horror game Alone in the Dark 5 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC is looking really, really good. While the YouTube clip below doesn’t really do justice to the visuals, you can get a pretty good idea of how immersive the graphics look in this highly anticipated horror/thriller game.

Which Gaming Console is the Biggest Power Hog?

Which Gaming Console is the Biggest Power Hog?
The hardware geeks over at hardCOREware recently ran a battery of tests to determine which of the current generation of video game systems uses the most power. Unsurprisingly, the Nintendo Wii consumes significantly less power than the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and a typical gaming PC.

Pimp Your Sixaxis Controller

Pimp Your Sixaxis Controller
Don’t care for the clean design of the PS3’s SIXAXIS controller? Why not make it super fugly with these analog joystick covers from Japan. These oddly textured silicon caps attach to the top of the PlayStation 3’s analog sticks, supposedly protecting the thumbsticks and providing grip, all while making your controller the ugliest one on the block.

God of War 2 to Run in High Def on PS3?

God of War 2 to Run in High Def on PS3?
[UPDATE 2/13/07: IGN has since updated their original review, now stating that SCEA has confirmed that the title will only run in 480p. Bummer.] I was already psyched for the impending release of God of War II for the Sony PlayStation 2, but now there’s even more reason to rejoice.

Sony PS3 Background Downloads Coming in March

Sony PS3 Background Downloads Coming in March
While the Sony PlayStation 3 certainly hasn’t yet lived up to original expectations, there are still several million of us who did buy the console, and would like it to become part of our regular gaming regimen.

PS3 Sixaxis Rumble Solution Possible

PS3 Sixaxis Rumble Solution Possible
One thing sorely lacking from Sony’s SIXAXIS controller for the PS3 is the rumble sensation that’s present in pretty much all of the other major gaming systems out there. Sony claimed they left it out due because it interfered with the systems motion sensors, but conventional wisdom tells us that a legal dispute between Sony and Immersion kept the controllers rumble-free.

Sony Fixes PS3/PS2 Backwards Compatibility Issue

Sony Fixes PS3/PS2 Backwards Compatibility Issue
Since the Sony PlayStation 3 hit shelves back in November, it’s been racked with complaints about a huge bug with PS2 backwards compatibilty. Specifically, the PS3 would screw up the graphics on non-progressive scan PS2 titles (of which there are many), by creating odd artifacts on every other vertical line of images.

Sony Finds a New Way to Take Our Money

Sony Finds a New Way to Take Our Money
Rather than solving such important challenges as delivering quality games, fixing the awful PlayStation Network interface, or working out the nasty bugs in the system’s PS2 backwards compatibility, Sony has announced that they’ll be releasing an exciting new add-on for the PlayStation 3 console… drum-roll please….

Xbox 360 Vs. PS3 Visuals: 360 Still on Top

PS3 Copies Xbox 360 and Overheats Too?
