Is Sony Sabotaging the PlayStation 3 Console and Blu-ray? 500°
December 14, 2008 // 10:02 pm - Washington Times writer Sonny Bunch has released a very controversial article saying that instead of trying to bolster the PS3 and Blu-ray as much as possible, Sony is hindering and sabotaging the system and the format. Sounds crazy, right? Well, he actually makes a few good points.

First of all, he criticizes Sony because in these bad economic times, instead of releasing a cheaper console, they released a more expensive SKU:

We're dealing with the worst economy...

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....

Which Developer Can Save the PlayStation 3 Console? 200°
December 8, 2008 // 9:08 pm - For two game generations, Sony established itself as the industry leader: the popularity of the PSone carried over to the rampant success of the PS2.

Of course, many people expected a similar situation for the PS3, but the transition for the latest system hasn't been as seamless as people expected. While its best of times from the past two consoles hasn't lead to a worst of times now, Sony has committed a number of mistakes, such as a reversal on its backwards compatibility policy, a loss of system exclusive titles and a staunch refusal to counter price drops by competitors.

The Next Metal Gear is Not on the PlayStation 3 Console? 500°
December 5, 2008 // 3:43 am - Ah, Konami, you tease us so. This just sprang up on the Kojima Productions site this morning, it's a flash landing page with nothing but the Konami logo and the image below.

Is the green a reference to the Xbox 360?

Are the exclamation marks a reference to the Wii, or Ac!d, or the DSi?

Is that a PC power button?

Whichever, we have a sinking feeling this isn't a PS3 game... any guesses?

Is the PlayStation 3 Console Really Doing That Badly? 50°
December 4, 2008 // 8:38 pm - The answer is no, they are not. In fact, they are doing pretty well for the difficult position that they are in at this point in time.

What Sony really needs to focus on right now is profit, and NOT the fanboys nor the console war. A lot of PlayStation fans out their feel the need for Sony to drop the price of the PS3 so it can "beat" the 360 in the console war, and in my opinion that is selfish.

Sony is currently losing profit on every PS3 sold and the only thing they need to focus on right now is making profit. If you factor in all the obstacles in front of the...

December 1, 2008 // 8:28 pm - BBC staff member Jon (iPlayer Host) has stated on their forums (linked above) that they have fixed issues people were having using the BBC iPlayer on the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Kalel2008: As soon as I read on the Web site that you can play videos from the iplayer on the PS3, I was so excited untill I found that it was not true.

dosyman: You can, but it's an unofficial site.

Steve9719: There's an even more official way to get the iPlayer working on the PS3. Simply...

The Future of Console Video Games? 250°
November 28, 2008 // 9:21 pm - Andrew Weymes (aka MrWeymes) says Nintendo obviously went in another direction, deviating from what gamers expect from a next generation console.

I'm sure most gamers assumed that every 5 or 6 years, we would get an upgrade of our current console with a slightly reworked controller, better graphics, and more features such as online capabilities, and Blu Ray.

Sony, and Microsoft knew what was expected of them, and delivered. I don't think that many people thought that the Nintendo "Revolution" (as was the Wii's code name) wouldn't have a standard controller, but...
