Sony Didn't Intend the PlayStation 3 to Succeed as a Console 550°
December 13, 2008 // 8:18 pm - Everyone was probably glad to know that the PS3 managed to sell more than a 150k during November. And while many Sony fans would see the glass half full, analysts and skeptics would see the glass half-empty, considering that the PS3 and PS2 combined didn't come close to the Xbox 360 or Nintendo Wii's numbers.

However, selling a console during this generation wasn't Sony's priority for the PS3 to begin with. Good numbers or not, Sony already accomplished what they wanted from their third-generation console.

It all started back in E3 2005 with an article on IGN...

Review of Sony's PlayStation Home for the PlayStation 3 Console 500°
December 12, 2008 // 9:59 pm - To start off, I would like to say that overall I like PlayStation Home for PS3, but I did find quite a few gripes about the overall scheme of things.

The Problems:
The biggest problem I have is the Hard Drive space it uses. When I first downloaded it and saw the "77MB" Download, I was relieved to find out that it only used a small amount of space. Not true, after downloading it asks you to "Dedicate 3 GB of storage to home".

I didn't have a problem with this so much, but to my surprise almost immediately when you start it uses a good chuck of that space....

Sony's PlayStation 3 is a Sinking Ship as Sales Plummet 300°
December 12, 2008 // 8:54 pm - Alone among the three major videogame consoles, sales of the PS3 are down about 19% from November 2007, according to the latest stats from the NPD Group. Sony was only able to sell 378,000 PS3s this November, compared to 466,000 last year.

And the problem for Sony isn't the recession, it's the PS3. Microsoft (MSFT) put up respectable numbers with its Xbox 360, selling 836,000 units vs 777,000 in November 2007. And Nintendo's (NTDOY) Wii continues to dominate the market, more than doubling sales from 981,000 to 2.04 million.

So why is the PS3 flopping so badly?

Sony Takes Micro-transactions to New World in PlayStation Home 50°
December 11, 2008 // 8:30 pm - Sony launched its Home virtual world for the PlayStation 3 today, opening up its beta test to all 16 million PS3 owners. We've tested Home in a closed beta so far, but now we will find out if it is ready for millions of people.

Jack Buser is the director of Home for the U.S. market. We talked with him by phone yesterday about Sony's plans for expanding the world and what's there now. [FYI: At the moment, I'm having trouble logging into Home; apparently, it's crowded]

VentureBeat: You took more than 18 months. That's a long time. What was the hard part?

Five PlayStation 3 RPG Games Being Worked On Internally at Sony 250°
December 7, 2008 // 8:40 pm - Shuhei Yoshida finally answers the burning question on many, many, many hardcore gamers minds... Where are the RPG's?!

In a poorly translated Japanese interview from a recent Famitsu magazine, a good soul who visits the site has been able to piece together 3 things for us:

1 - Sony is disappointed in their Japanese business model at the moment
2 - Sony is working on 3rd party relations
3 - Sony is developing 5 RPG's internally for their fanbase

While we already knew 2 of those things we, or at least I, didn't know the last one... I remember...
