Sony Japan today revealed a new TV tuner add-on for their PSP portable gaming system. The PSP-S310 tuner plugs into the PSP’s cartridge port and provides digital television reception on the system’s TFT screen.

Ever since the Sony PSP came out about 2 years ago, it’s gotten a pretty bad rap for its relative lack of quality gaming titles, especially when compared to the Nintendo DS. Sure, a handful of innovative games like Lumines and LocoRoco have made their way onto the portable, but for every one good game, there are twenty stinkers.
The faux pas of the day comes to us courtesy of master of all things Xbox, Major Nelson. Apparently, some junior web developer over at Sony mistakenly used a screenshot of the Xbox hit racing game, Project Gotham Racing 3 in an advertisement for Gran Turismo 4.
If you’re frustrated with how long it takes to convert your videos into a format that can be played back on your portable device, this new device promises to significantly reduce the time required to encode videos into the popular H.264/.mp4
Lik-Sang, one of my favorite places for imported game systems and accessories from the Far East has been unexpectedly shut down as a result of increasing pressure from pending litigation from Sony.

Everyone’s getting into the digital camera accessory business, what with add-ons available for the Playstation 2, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS, the PSP was starting to feel left out.
