Can you believe that it’s been 15 years since the original Sony PlayStation came out?
In celebration of the dawning of the modern console era (ok, the Dreamcast was really the better console, IMHO), Sony has released this short film documenting the brief history of the PlayStation line…
It looks like Sony has started attacking all of those shallow and mediocre game apps on smartphones. Personally, I loaded up my Cybershot phone hundreds of free games that I downloaded. Why pay for something that you can get for free?
Sony just introduced a video demonstrating this amazing new 360-degree display technology that’s something you might find in a James Cameron movie.
The new autostereoscopic display projects 360 individual slices of an image onto an array of special LEDs, providing a volumetric display you can walk around and view from any angle – without glasses.
I have no problems with HDMI technology – it transfers uncompressed digital audio and video smoothly while using just one cable. Isn’t that great? But LG, Samsung and Sony think we could do better. The three companies and the rest of the founders of the HDBaseT Alliance will be pushing for HDBaseT technology, the specifications of which have already been finalized last June 29.
It seems to me that a Sony PS3 might be a little big and heavy for lugging around your portable electronic gadgets inside of. But this is a tiny, soft PS3 we’re talking about, so maybe it’s not that bad.
A Japanese media retailer called Geo reportedly revealed that a Sony PSP-4000 would be coming out this year. I say “reportedly” because the leak is in Japanese; the PSP-4000 is mentioned at the bottom of the chart you see below.
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.
Sony touts its new Dash multimedia device with this funny commercial which sells us on the advantages of using the Dash as a high-tech alarm clock.
Sony is airing the spot in the Washington D.C. and San Fransisco areas to get some buzz building for the recently released personal internet device.
Thanks to Sony’s α NEX cameras, I now know the true meaning of gadget porn. I just can’t stop looking at these sexy things, and I’m not even into photography. Sony claims that these are the world’s smallest interchangeable lens cameras – portable, yet versatile.
Sony first showed off its Vaio P line of computers at CES a few years back and they were downright offended if you called the machines netbooks. This was despite their small form factor, netbook hardware, and netbook performance mind you.
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.
His latest take on the portable PS3 Slim incorporates many of the design elements of the first one, with some subtle changes.
Persona 3 is one of the best RPGs ever released on the PlayStation 2. PSP owners will soon be able to play Persona 3 Portable, an updated version of the game, with new features like full control of all playable characters, part-time jobs that give extra money and stats, and also the ability to play as a girl.
With the abundance of website, blogs and forums dedicated to gaming, one would be inclined to think that Sony could have consulted the information readily available online for “ideas to improve the PlayStation experience.” But no, the company chose to open PlayStation.Blog Share, to ask gamers for “ideas”.
It was only a matter of time before people got bored with the plain old black plastic shell on the exterior of the Sony PS3 Slim. I knew we could count on the guys over at XCM to come up with a sexy exterior upgrade for the PS3’s dull stock black case.
