BBC iPlayer 3 is Coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 Console This Year 200°
244w ago - The BBC iPlayer has been available on Sony's PlayStation 3 console for quite some time, however, according to the BBC's Simon Cross the BBC iPlayer 3 will be coming to the PS3 entertainment system this year.

According to TechRadar, a new version of the catch-up TV service known as the iPlayer 3 will arrive as soon as technical issues with the sign-in process are resolved.

To quote: "Cross also noted that new functionality would be appearing on the application, including a For You section which would consist of shows you may be interested in.

There will also be more social network functionality, although it was unclear whether the Facebook and Twitter integration would make the move to the PS3.

The biggest problem the BBC is trying to overcome is signing into the app and how the BBC is going to implement this.

"We don't know whether to integrate it with the PSN signing in process or do something new," Cross explained."
 

Sony's PlayStation 2 Gaming Console Sells One Million in 2010

Sony's PlayStation 2 Gaming Console Sells One Million in 2010 300°
250w ago - A few days back we reported on both PS3 and PSP sales data, and today Sony has revealed that it has sold one million PS2 gaming consoles in 2010 thus far.

In addition to being crowned as the best selling gaming console of all time, it appears as though the PlayStation 2 still have some life left in it indeed.

The PlayStation 2 has officially broke into its first 1,000,000 units for 2010!

To quote: "This feat was accomplished weeks before we reached the halfway point in the year, meaning the PS2 has potential to sell around 3,000,000 to 3,500,000 units by the end of the year due to the holiday season.

Analysts have predicted that the PS2 will soon reach a ground-breaking 150,000,000 total units.

This is just under 50,000,000 more units than its predecessor, the PlayStation (PSOne) and a goal that Kaz Hirai (President & CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment) set for the PlayStation 3 a few years ago."

251w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has unveiled a first look video today of Dead Rising 2 on the PS3 video game console.

To quote: When zombies first descended on the shoppers of fictional Willamette, Colorado in Dead Rising, the PlayStation 3... didn't exist.

Four years later, the zombies are ready to shamble, moan, and hunger for brains again in Dead Rising 2 - coming to PS3 this August.

Didn't play the first game? We've got you covered. Capcom's Mike Schmitt and Wes Phillips walk us through the sequel's new multiplayer modes, and give newcomers a look at the delicious combination of goofiness and gore that summarize the Dead Rising universe.

We'll have more Dead Rising 2 throughout the Summer. If you've got any questions, throw 'em in the comments - we'll remember them for next time.




 

Video: PS2 Controller Hacked, Used to Control PSP Console

Video: PS2 Controller Hacked, Used to Control PSP Console 550°
253w ago - Recently TokyoDrift hacked a PlayStation 2 controller and built an adapter that allows you to connect the PS2 gamepad to a Sony PSP console to control it.

For those curious, this adapter didn't require any hardware alteration to the PSP or the PS2 controller, as a plug-in was used on the PSP Firmware side of things.

The adapter then makes use of video out and PS2 controller extension cables, along with an ATmega8 microcontroller to handle the signals between the two devices.

Check out a video of the PS2 controller hack in action with a PlayStation Portable below, via YouTube!
