Sony PS3 Gets Fried in Mysterious Psyclone HDMI Cable Blaze

400°
254w ago - A PS3 owner has revealed to Gizmodo (linked above) that his Sony PlayStation 3 console became a little burnt after plugging in a Psychlone HDMI cable.

The big fry up ended after around 10 seconds once the cord had eventually melted off, however, it still caused quite a bit of damage.

To quote: "He had his PS3 plugged into an electrical source although it wasn't running any games at the time of this. He plugged in his Psyclone HDMI cable from his Samsung 32-inch flatpanel TV to the PS3 when the sparks started flying.

A flame actually shot up out of the PS3, and sparks were firing out of both ends where the HDMI cable met with the ports. The mess ended in 10 seconds when the cord melted off. Pictures included.

We cannot figure out why/how this occurred. No breakers were tripped, no damage or discoloration to any wall outlets or other power sources. Only the HDMI ports."

To quote: It asks visitors their interests and then plays back the unique selling points of the console through an interactive presenter. Visitors to the site are then invited to create their own video to send onto friends based on their particular needs.

The campaign will also include social media, search and online advertisng.

As we broaden the PlayStation's appeal to a wider group of consumers, we just feel our audience needs a little bit of help selling the full range of capabilities to their wives, mums or girlfriends."

100°
263w ago - Last month we posted some gameplay trailers and screens for the New Super Mario Bros. videogame that is hitting the Nintendo Wii.

Today Vooks.net (linked above) has shared a look inside of the red New Super Mario Bros Wii case via some pictures available below.

If I owned a Wii console, this would be one title I'd be getting during the holiday season... is anyone else here planning to pick it up?

Anyway, to quote: "Yes, if you're also wondering that means we have got our copy, and we're not just going to be posting pictures of the case.

Look out for more videos of the game later tonight. The manual art we have received is also different from the US art which features a dot-art design rather then the mosaic strips of items we get."

Finally, for those curious on the story's outline: The game will follow the traditional storyline of Princess Peach getting kidnapped by Bowser. When Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad, and Yellow Toad are celebrating Princess Peach's birthday in her castle, a large cake reels in.

Immediately Bowser Jr. and...
 

Rumor: Killzone 3 Gets 2011 PS3 Target Date by Guerrilla Games

50°
263w ago - Three weeks ago it was rumored that Killzone 3 is in development for Sony's PS3 console, and tentatively scheduled for release sometime during 2010.

Today, ConnectedConsoles.com (linked above) is reporting that Guerrilla Studios employee Jan-Bart Van Beek stated the title is actually being developed with a 2011 target date, but the game could be released as early as 2010.

For now, it's just more fuel on the fire for the rumormill... as there has been no official confirmation by Guerrilla Games nor Sony.

To quote: When speaking in a video interview with a Dutch TV Show recently, Guerrilla Studios employee Jan-Bart Van Beek is reported to claim "Right now, Killzone 3 for a release in 2011, is being developed. Who knows, maybe we'll see the game even as early as 2010."
