Rumor: Details on Sony's PlayStation Cloud Surface

Rumor: Details on Sony's PlayStation Cloud Surface 50°
298w ago - According to shakedown1987 via GameTrailers (linked above), Sony has began training on their recently patented "PlayStation Cloud".

Apparently, PlayStation Cloud is similar to the social-media site Facebook. This application will update, in real-time, and show all your friends your latest trophy accomplishments, avatar changes, etc.

Furthermore, it seems Sony is looking to make some features of the service public, and is actively looking for current customer service employees to moderate the public arenas.

To quote: Someone from SCEA consumer services told me something interesting. I recently called Sony's consumer services to complain to them about the lack of features, hoping they would forward it to the right people.

The guy I talked to was like he had no idea if they are getting those features however he said that he has an orientation sometime next week for a new service with new features called PlayStation Cloud, he said that all he knows about it is what his manager had told him and that there will be something similar to FaceBook where you'll have a News Feed thing that will say all the things you've done or friends have done on PlayStation Network like...

Sony Outlines PS3 Motion Control Details to Developers 200°
298w ago - Just under two weeks ago it was announced that PS3 Motion Sensor Development Kits were already making their way to developers.

Today, Sony has outlined their new PS3 Motion Control details to developers a bit further than before to get them up to speed on the new PlayStation Eye-powered Motion Controller technology.

To quote: The PlayStation 3's second motion control push is slated to launch in Spring 2010, Sony Computer Entertainment reiterated to developers today, arriving with a "range of first-party and third-party content." SCE pitched the new controller as capable of functioning "with any games across all genres from casual to core."

On the technical side, SCE says that the PlayStation Eye accessory will come equipped with force feedback rumble. Sony boasts that the "face-tracking and head-tracking capability already in the PS3 SDK" will offer developers "powerful tools for new types of user interaction."

Sony says its new controller will also work in tandem...

Sony Europe: No Comment on Activision's Price Drop Opinion 200°
298w ago - Update: According to Kotaku PlayStation spokesman Patrick Seybold has now stated:

"PlayStation has tremendous momentum coming out of E3, and we are seeing positive growth with more than 350 titles slated to hit across all our platforms, including many anticipated games from our publishing partners."

According to VG247 (linked above), Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has just issued a statement on Bobby Kotick's threat earlier today to drop PS3 and PSP support.

To quote: "We respect our third-parties' opinions and their right to express those opinions but we will not be commenting on this story," said an SCEE rep.

The Activision boss said this morning that his company may drop support for Sony hardware in 2010 or 2011 unless PS3's price is cut.

Additionally, Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has already branded Kotick's comments as "bluffing".
 

Activision Threatens to Drop PS3 if Sony Doesn't Cut the Price

Activision Threatens to Drop PS3 if Sony Doesn't Cut the Price 350°
298w ago - Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has threatened that the company may drop support for the PS3 console in 2010 and 2011 if things don't pick up for Sony's platform.

Apparently he wants a price cut now because the attach rate of games is very low.

To quote: "They have to cut the price, because if they don't, the attach rates [the number of games each console owner buys] are likely to slow. If we are being realistic, we might have to stop supporting Sony."

Ask when and he says: "When we look at 2010 and 2011, we might want to consider if we support the console – and the PSP [portable] too."

Sounds like Sir Howard Stringer, Sony's chief executive, is going to have to call Mr Kotick pretty fast.
