PS3 voted 'Teen Favorite' by Global Youth Survey

50°
324w ago - A Global Youth Survey conducted by Habbo, the second one it's done apparently, has revealed that PlayStation 3 "is the console of choice for teens today".

The report asked 58,486 teens between the ages of 11 and 18 in a global survey across 31 markets. 69 percent refer to PS3 as 'great' or 'good'. This was followed closely by the Nintendo Wii at 64 percent and Xbox 360 with 58 percent. So there's not much in it by the looks of it.

PS3 beat Wii in every age group except the 11 to 12 year olds and Wii was more popular among girls up to 16. Are you surprised to learn that it's the "favored female choice overall"? Thought not.

The results also showed that while Xbox 360 is less popular in Europe and Asia, its popularity in the US is much better. It's the most popular console in Mexico and Colombia and takes second place in the US, Canada, the Dominican Republic and Venezuela.

"The results of this survey are interesting as it gives us an insight into which brands these teens aspire to as the level of ownership does not correspond to the consoles' popularity," said the people behind the survey. "By order of ownership, the Wii leads, followed by the Xbox 360 and PS3."

Of the teens surveyed, 24 percent own a Wii, with 21 percent and 23 percent owning a PS3 and Xbox 360 respectively....

PS3 Firmware 2.35 sneaks YouTube functionality in!

500°
324w ago - Sony claimed that all Firmware 2.35 did was "improve stability of some PS3 titles". Well, it turns out that the YouTube compatibility is one of those secret updates that occasionally make it unannounced into a PlayStation 3 firmware update.

The functionality was added via Version 2.35 of the firmware. At the moment, Mainichi Issyo (the crazy cat game downloadable only on off the Japanese store) is the only title to do so.

Videos are captured at 320x240, 30 frames per second and saved in an MPEG-4 file at 768kbps. Sound is recorded at 64kbps in AAC format. The maximum clip length is ten minutes.

Upon selecting to finish their recording sessions, players are given the choice of either saving their clips to the hard disk or uploading them to YouTube. Choose the latter option, and you're prompted for your YouTube user name and password.

The game then uploads the clip on the spot, showing a progress bar while you wait for the upload to complete.
 

Electronic Arts Likely to Extend Take-Two Buyout Offer

50°
324w ago - The clock is ticking down on Electronic Arts's takeover bid for publisher Take-Two, and the company remains steadfast in its refusal to buckle. But the publishing giant doesn't seem ready to give up so easily.

When Electronic Arts made their initial offer of $25.74 a share in late February, a much higher premium than what Take-Two was trading for at the time, they apparently expected Take-Two to immediately jump on the offer, according to Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter in an article from Forbes. But when Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick stonewalled, EA was stumped.

Now, with Grand Theft Auto IV on the market and Take-Two shares hovering around $26.59 a share, the takeover attempt seems to be at an impasse. Though Rockstar, 2K Boston, and 2K Sports remain tempting targets, there are other issues that may complicate the deal.

Many analysts can't agree on how much Take-Two is really worth, and any takeover would probably necessitate a special deal with Rockstar. Founder Sam Houser has previously stated that working with a larger publisher would mean wanting a larger share of the profits.

Speaking at a Tuesday press conference, EA CEO John Riccitiello dismissed questions about Take-Two but reiterated that one of EA's core goal over the next three years...
