New Flash-based 12GB PS3 Console Hits US and Canada for $199.99

400°
53w ago - Today the previous PlayStation 3 rumors have been confirmed as a new flash-based 12GB PS3 console has been spotted on retailer shelves in both the US and Canada for $199.

Below are the details, to quote: "Following its release in Europe last year, the heavily rumored Flash-based PlayStation 3 is now on sale in the United States and Canada, The Verge has confirmed.

Sony's first low-storage model of the venerable console is now on shelves at Best Buy selling for $199.99. It's also available for sale at Canadian retailer Future Shop.

Sony had resisted selling a lower-capacity console in light of its emphasis on digital game and media downloads, even though Microsoft has always offered a low-storage Xbox 360. Both systems support adding additional storage through USB."

Finally, from Sony Hardware Associate Brand Marketing Manager Crystal MacKenzie:

At PlayStation, we want to provide the best place to play. That’s why today, we are pleased to announce the North American launch of our brand new PS3 12GB System for $199.99 (MSRP). This new 12GB system is the perfect way to play exclusive titles found only on PlayStation*, and to get access to the entertainment services offered through...

56w ago - PlayStation Access TV Deputy Editor Rob Pearson shared a hands-on peek at the PlayStation 4 console out of the PS4 box below today!

To quote: Greetings! As anticipation for this year's PS4 launch bubbles into a froth of frenzied excitement, we know a few of you will be asking stuff like 'but just how big is the damn thing? Will it fit snugly under my television? Can I stand it up? How many USB ports does it have?'

That's why we've taken PlayStation 4 out from behind its Perspex curtain and thrust it into the capable hands of PlayStation Access Community Manager, Hollie Bennett, who in our latest video gives you a close-up look at the gorgeous new console from every possible angle.

There's also a look at the swanky PlayStation Camera, so check out the video for a first-hand glimpse and what you'll be taking home with you later in 2013.

Sony PS4 Retail Console Passes Through FCC, Details Available

550°
56w ago - Following up on Sony's PS4 Dev Kit FCC filing, today the Retail PlayStation 4 counterpart has also passed through the FCC with details below.

From Engadget (linked above), to quote: "Sony's PS4 dev kit passed by the FCC roughly a week ago, and now its consumer-oriented counterpart has passed through Uncle Sam's offices.

Not only do the federal documents show the consoles' polished exterior, but they once again note a "max clock frequency" of 2.75GHz, teasing just what kind of horsepower sits inside the black parallelogram.

Though there isn't much more to note in the agency's files, a duo of system labels marked with "Made in China" and "Made in Japan" hint that Hirai and Co. will be manufacturing the hardware in both those territories.

Mark Cerny's wunderconsole won't be hitting store shelves until later this year, but it already has the appropriate paperwork to make the trip stateside."

Finally, according to IGN the system will only consume enough power to generate a temperature between 5 degrees...
 

Wii60 Graphics on the way from Developers?

50°
327w ago - No matter which way you cut the cheese, the Wii has been a huge success for Nintendo. Sales for the little white box of joy have been extremely impressive, and it isn't uncommon for some Aussie retailers to witness 'Wii droughts' due to the console rapidly disappearing off the shelves like Hotcakes, or Tickle Me Elmo, or some yet-to-be-recalled anatomically correct Barbie doll.

Immense console sales are all well and good for the bean counters and the Nintendo money bin, but when it comes to game titles the Wii has a fatal flaw: 3rd party shovelware and the piss-poor graphics contained therein.

With the occasional exceptions from a handful of talented 3rd party developers with the time and money to spend on their products, most of the high watermark visuals we've seen on the system have been spewed forth from Nintendo themselves.

This is mainly due to the majority of third party developers saturating store shelves with low budget, half-arsed attempts at games (or 1/4 arse attempts in the case of Far Cry and Red Steel) which, understandably, none of us ran out to buy.

This prompted game publisher suits everywhere to gather together in their respective boardrooms (around the company Dark Crystal, most likely) and decree amongst themselves that 'the Wii isn't viable,...
