Turn your game console into a media hub

Turn your game console into a media hub 50°
360w ago - The Good: Universal plug-and-play (UPnP) application; works with all three video game consoles and other IP-enabled devices; no real limits to how much content you can accumulate with the software

The Bad: Graphical user-interface isn't the sleekest; learning curve might be intimidating at first, particularly when it comes to Web content; still no Mac or Linux support.

The Verdict: Bringing all that PC and Web content to your TV at the same time.

One of the biggest unknowns for someone who owns both a computer and next-gen video game console is that the two devices can talk to each other. You just need the right software to bridge them together.

TVersity is a well-known application among those who've shown a real interest in utilizing the IP-enabled features that are built into their game consoles. The software makes it easy to stream video and audio files you have stored on your computer, so that you can watch or listen to them on your living room big screen TV.

ASSEMBLING AN ARMY OF CONTENT

The Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and even the Nintendo Wii have capabilities that can turn them into would-be media hubs. Considering that they have Web browsers (minus the 360), Wi-Fi and online "stores" where you can buy new content, it shouldn't come as a big surprise...

Rockstar Screws Microsoft on GTA IV?

Rockstar Screws Microsoft on GTA IV? 50°
360w ago - We published an article a few weeks back called Microsoft in GTA IV Panic in which we detailed how the industry giant was stressing about the number of PS3 consoles the release of GTA IV would ship over Xbox 360s.

We argued that this was evident in the way Microsoft had gone about marketing the Xbox 360 version of the game. We also pointed out how Sony had, it appeared, done very little in response (you'll have to read it for the full explanation).

Now we know why.

As you have no doubt read, it has come to light that a new version of the PS3 will be made available in time for the launch of GTA IV. It is the 40GB model of the console, but it comes bundled with GTA IV. This is a big, big deal. Especially as the package doesn't cost any more money than the unbundled version of the console.

The deal is only officially announced for a UK release, but we've been given the tip-off that Australia will receive the deal too... in fact we've heard unconfirmed reports that some retailers are already promoting it. And if it is making it all the way to little 'ol Oz, then it should hit every other major territory as well.

This is a massive blow for Microsoft, who has already lowered the Xbox 360's price point in Europe, and paid US$50 million for downloadable content...
 

Ben Heck's Latest Wonder Project: PS3 Laptop

Ben Heck's Latest Wonder Project: PS3 Laptop 500°
360w ago - Ben Heck put his skills to good use again in his latest project. This time he has turned a PS3 into a Laptop.

There aren't any details as of yet, only the picture shown below.

To quote: It looks like the PS3 is finally getting some hot mod love from console modding's reigning wizard, Ben Heck. We don't really have all the details since he hasn't announced the project yet, but the display looks like it's the one he used for the Xbox 360 Elite laptop, for a true 720p picture.

He's obviously been leveling up his already formidable powers though, 'cause this is one of his most polished projects yet.
 

Revamped PlayStation Store Demoed, New Firmware April 15

Revamped PlayStation Store Demoed, New Firmware April 15 200°
360w ago - Sony have released a video demonstrating the newly redesigned PlayStation Store, set to launch later this month.

The clean new look certainly makes the store easier to navigate, and the ability to watch video previews of PSN titles straight from within the store is icing on the cake.

In other PS3 related news, the upcoming 2.30 firmware will feature support for DTS-HD Master Audio. The update is due out on April 15 worldwide.
