Sony and Amazon have an interesting relationship. On one hand, they're enemies. The Kindle rivals the Sony Reader, and vice-versa. On the other, they're best of friends, with Sony now being able to sell digital downloads codes for its PlayStation wares through the online mega-retailer's website. A newly formed agreement between the two enables it to distribute another 200 videogame downloads for Sony's PS consoles, which is pegged as a move to adjust to demands to get games on-demand and online versus in a store on a disc. Furthermore, Sony's newest PSP doesn't even accept discs, so the plan makes even more sense for Sony to construct. The deal will allow Amazon.com to offer "tokens" that are... Read more...
Sony's PSPgo has really taken it on the chin. Reviewers around the Web have criticized the new gaming handheld for being too expensive, too limiting and just too backwards to be taken seriously. Of course, we also think the physical disc will soon die in favor of digital downloads, but obviously the PSPgo is just a few years ahead of its time.The console, which cannot accept PSP-3000 UMD-style games, can only retrieve games and content digitally. So you can either upload media from a flash card, your PC or over-the-air downloads. To some, this may not be that big of a deal; for those with vast PSP-3000 UMD game libraries, it's somewhat less appealing. But hey, we still think Sony will sell quite... Read more...
We've always heard that wherever there's a will, there's a way. That's exactly what SanDisk believes, as its newest memory card lineup targets gamers who actually think a specially labeled flash card will work best in their new handheld. Of course, we can't fault the marketing here--we're sure it'll work to some extent, but largely this is just new memory sizes with new labels (and a price tag to compensate).The new 16GB Memory Stick Micro (M2) is being hailed as the perfect accessory for the flash-only PSP go, while the 32GB Memory Stick PRO Duo and Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo cards are compatible with the original PSP. Finally, the 8GB SDHC card looks to add storage to Nintendo's DSi system. Honestly,... Read more...
Eager to get your hands on a new PSPgo, but frustrated by the fact that you spent good money on all those standard PSP accessories that are no longer compatible. Well, Sony's about to make you even more frustrated, as the only way to make them compatible is to spend even more on a new Converter Cable Adapter.Announced at the Tokyo Game Show this week, the PSPgo adapter enables users of the newest, UMD-free PlayStation Portable handheld to use existing peripherals designed for PSP-1000, 2000 and 3000 series units (those are the older, UMB-enabled devices). It'll ship in Japan in late December for 1,980 yen, though North America, Europe/PAL territories and Asian countries won't see it until early... Read more...
More details have arisen about the Sony Ericsson Aino cell phone that will have some PS3 integration embedded in it. It's not the "PSP phone" that people keep talking about and hoping for, and to be honest, it seems to lack a lot of what people might have been hoping for. In a Q&A with the Euro PS blog, Sony Ericsson's Lisa Canning dished on some highlights, and lowlights. No surprise, no UMD support. Did we ever expect it? Also, while you will be able to use Remote Play to connect and control the PS3's XMB through the Internet, you won't be able to play PS1 games as you can on the PSP. To access Remote Play, select the Remote Play icon in the entertainment menu of their Aino. The PS3 generates... Read more...
At long last, the new PlayStation 3 is a reality. At a press event today in Germany, Sony announced that it would be shipping a slimmer, sexier PS3 console at the beginning of next month, and while it wouldn't gain any functionality from the 80GB PS3 that we've come to know and love, it wouldn't lose anything either. Better still, those who buy in will be seeing a capacity bump (120GB) and a lower MSRP ($299), which Sony has needed to present for quite some time. The new PS3 features a matte finish, a noticeably thinner profile (takes up 32% less space) and the same internal specifications as the existing "thick" PS3. Speaking of those, the 160GB and 80GB PS3 consoles are being discounted by... Read more...
Welp, looks like Sony's cat is sufficiently out of the bag. With E3 scheduled to get underway next week in California, Sony's biggest secret for the show is a secret no more. Just hours ago, official images leaked of what will reportedly be called the "PSP go." This new PlayStation Portable looks to be a smaller, more compact version of the existing PSP, and it looks as if it won't have a rear UMD slot. What's this mean for gamers? It probably means a cheaper PSP option, and it definitely means that more download-only games will be on the horizon.A leaked video showing off the device explains that it will be sold alongside the current PSP, leading us to believe that the PSP go will be priced...

Gamers are well aware that E3 is just around the bend, and whispers are sure getting hopes up around the web. Microsoft is expected to unveil a motion sensing system to compete with Microsoft's Wii, Sony just might debut a new thin PlayStation 3, and the PSP just might snag game rentals and music downloads. According to various sources, we're learning that Sony may be in serious discussions with "some of the major recording companies" after offering up music downloads via the PlayStation Network, and considering just how successful iTunes has become (and the tiny fact that the PSP has a music player already built-in), this all sounds like a match made in heaven.In related news, curious surveys...

UMD movies -- remember those? Yes, they're the little discs that slide into the rear of Sony's PlayStation Portable, and it's been ages since a major motion picture was released on the format. In a crazy, wild world just years from now, we could be saying the very same thing about games.In what Sony is describing as a "one time test case," the outfit is releasing the forthcoming title Patapon 2 as a digital-only title. In other words, the only way you're playing this game is if you download it. In case that's still not sinking in, Patapon 2 will be the first PSP game to ever be released without a disc. For what it's worth, the game will still see retail shelves, but those who buy the package... Read more...
Um, what? Frankly, that's the reaction we have after digesting an absolutely absurd -- and borderline comical -- new PR snippet from Sony. Given that April 1st is well behind us, we're left to believe that John Koller's statement regarding Nintendo's DSi launch is completely legitimate. For those unaware, the smallest and most powerful DS yet is launching today in the United States, and rather than just pointing out facts about the PSP's superiority (the ability to play back UMD movies, a long history of downloadable content, an expansive 16:9 display, etc.), Sony Computer Entertainment America's Director of Hardware Marketing had this to say: "If Nintendo is really committed to reaching a broader,...

We can't say we saw this coming. After hearing that Sony's only dedicated PlayStation Store in America would be closing up this year, the company has come forward with a barrage of new material for its PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable consoles. From new software to new hardware, Sony's doing it all today.At its annual retail and publisher conference Destination PlayStation, Sony Computer Entertainment America has proudly announced a new lineup for its PSP that is said to "extend the PSP market to young female gamers." How on Earth does it plan to accomplish that? With a lilac-colored Hannah Montana PSP Entertainment Pack! The bundle, which will ship in July, not only includes a new color... Read more...
There's always quite a race to display things. Look at the ferocious competition and impressive innovation between the makers of plasma screens, LCD screens, rear-projection sets, you name it. I guess you can still buy Cathode Ray Tubes, too,  if you like technology from the last century. They all have their pluses and minuses, of course, but can you get one that has a picture up to 25 feet across diagonally but costs only $720?  Oh yes, how about if it weighed under 5 pounds? Toshiba says: consider our portable projector. “As an innovator in mobile computing technology, Toshiba has added the affordable TDP-SP1U to its lineup of award-winning projectors for consumers and business professionals...

For those of you skinnies, meaning owners of PSP-2000s, Skype for the PSP has arrived.  For you fatties, sorry.  The program needs the extra memory of the PSP-2000.As well as enabling free calls between users, Skype will allow PSP owners to send and receive voice and text messages, and make paid for calls to landlines and mobile phones.“PSP can now claim to be a highly cost effective and accessible portable communications device, alongside its entertainment credentials,” says Sony.Users planning to access Skype will need to upgrade their PSP to firmware version 3.90, register, and will require a headset and remote control. Japan's launch of Skye for the PSP has been delayed, as the... Read more...
