Sony Rep: PS3 Price Drop and Backwards Compatibility Coming

650°
289w ago - We've heard numerous PS3 price drop and PS3 backwards compatibility rumors several times over the last few months, but today SCRAWL is reporting the following (albeit unofficial) confirmation from their local Sony Rep, to quote:

"Over at my local GameStop (where I work), our Sony rep stopped in earlier today to update the PlayStation 3 kiosks and check in with us.

I decided to ask him about all the rumors going around on the PlayStation 3 slim. When I asked him about whether or not is coming he told me this:

"All I'm going to say is this: both a price drop and a firmware update with backwards compatibility are coming soon."

Directly from the mouth of a Sony rep. GamesCom is next week, folks. Don't be surprised if you hear the announcement."
 

Rumor: Sony Cambridge Job Posting Hints at MediEvil 3 for PS3?

100°
290w ago - Today GamesRaid (linked above) has uncovered a recent job posting for Sony Cambridge that seeks an Adobe Flash Animator.

Although the listing states simply 'an unannounced PS3 title' speculation has led to one series the studio is well known for, namely MediEvil 3 for PlayStation 3.

Perhaps they need the employee for an official Web site for this currently unannounced title? Time will tell...

To quote: A recent job listing for Sony Cambridge reveals how the studio requires an Adobe Flash Animator to 'apply [their] skills on an unannounced PS3 title'. Applicants are required 'to have top Flash design and Flash animation skills' for the contract job.

SCE Cambridge are currently working on LBP PSP as well as future revisions of Play TV, and now it seems they may also be working on a new PS3 title.
 

Sony's Life With PlayStation Gets 'World Heritage' Channel Added

100°
290w ago - Today Sony has updated Life with PlayStation by adding a completely new channel titled 'World Heritage' to it.

It's a simple update, as the channel includes information from various Web sites (including Wikipedia) from multiple areas around the world.

To quote: If you leave your controller for a long enough time, it automatically begins spinning the globe (like the other channels) and displays hi-res pictures from the areas you're hovering above about.

If you would like to see a picture from a designated area, then you can hover the country, hit 'X' and then press the 'start' button.

An overall nice addition to the free application, allowing many Life with PlayStation fans to do even more while helping the common good.

290w ago - Today's PS3 Slim update is another unofficial 'confirmation', this time stating the PlayStation 3 Slim will open GamesCom next week.

VG247.com has also confirmed that Sony's press conference is set to last "just over an hour" and the extra time around it is "for people to sit down", not the three hours as previously reported, and will begin around 7:00pm CET.

To quote from Pocket-Lint.com (linked above): "Sources close to the product have told us that Kazuo "Kaz" Hirai, head of Sony's console division, will announce the new hardware version of the PS3 at it's Tuesday evening press conference at GamesCom in Cologne, Germany next week.

The console, which has been rumored to be coming for some time, will land in shops in time for Christmas in both the UK and the US, and follow the company's history for creating slimmer versions of the console."
