There used to be a time when people would only have one video game console, and you’d have “Nintendo” fans and “Sega” fanatics, but gamers now tend to have more than one gaming console to take care of their needs.
A lot of gamers swear by the great fit and button placement of the Xbox 360 controller, so it’s no surprise that a gaming peripheral manufacturer like Speedlink would sell a PC gamepad that looks a lot like the Microsoft console’s controller.
Finding the normal PS3 controller a little too rigid for your liking? Maybe you want something that has a bit of a bend to it. Something that combines the bending properties of binoculars with Sony’s controller.
While most of us have managed to make the adjustment from keyboard and mouse to dual-analog joysticks to play FPSes on our consoles, there’s still nothing quite as accurate the keyboard/mouse combo. This new system from XCM hopes to even improve upon that.
Before anything else: if you’re quite familiar with the PS3 jailbreak scene, then yes, this is very old news for you. Still, I think this is quite an interesting piece of news for the rest of us who are not as acquainted with the intricacies of the exploit.
The old PS3 models occasionally had a problem with overheating, so when modder and PS3HAX administrator Pirate decided to make his second PS3 laptop mod, he decided to install a liquid-cooling system to ensure that it won’t be fried.
It’s been almost a year since we featured the Eagle Eye, a commercially-available USB adapter for the PS3 that lets users use both a keyboard and a mouse with the console. Here’s a more-or-less free alternative from hacker Matlo, who is working on a program that tricks a PS3 into thinking that your PC is a Sixaxis controller, letting you use mice, keyboards and other PC peripherals to play games on the PS3.
Well, ain’t this a great topper to days and days of outage of Sony’s PlayStation Network. What we first thought was just an annoying DOS attack turns out to be far more insidious.
I just received the following e-mail from Sony:
Valued PlayStation(R)Network/Qriocity Customer:
We have discovered that between April 17 and April 19, 2011,
certain PlayStation Network and Qriocity service user account
information was compromised in connection with an illegal and
unauthorized intrusion into our network.
On March 6, I mentioned that the PS3 had moved 41.6 million units all around the world (which was later corrected to 47.9 million by Sony). Sony has now come forward and announced that it has hit a record 50 million PS3 game consoles sold all around the world.
I love when an item I discover combines two of my favorite things, and this PS2/PS3 controller made out of chocolate satisfies those requirements perfectly. Michelle’s This and That is making these chocolate bars in the shape of a Dual-Shock controller, in either milk or dark chocolate.
There’s a reason why video game consoles like the Sony PS3 are restricted to some countries. It’s because if you have enough of them, you can build your own supercomputer. The Condor Project is a supercomputer made out of 1,716 PS3 networked together for the US Air Force.
I really love me some PS3. I use the thing for a Blu-ray player in my home theater, and we play tons of games on it. When my original PS3 died late last year, you would have thought the world ended around my house.
You’re not seeing things. This is actually a photo of God of War 3 being played on an iPhone.
The guys at pandaelf software have managed to put together a fairly complex implementation of their everyAir remote screen control system, which allows them to play PS3 games remotely on both an iPhone and an iPad.
I haven’t gotten a chance to load up LittleBigPlanet 2 onto my PS3 yet, but I played the hell out of the original, and heard nothing but great things about the sequel. Fans of these great games will be tickled to watch this creative short video clip by the guys over at Escapist Magazine, which brings the LBP world to life:
