Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro Bluetooth Keyboard - PS3 Review!

200°
340w ago - It is never fun to try to type in things with your PS3 controller, whether it be names of characters in games such as Call of Duty 4, created player names in Madden, etc. It is also no fun to search the web on the PS3 without the use of a keyboard. Enter, the Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro, to cure all of these problems and more on your Sony PS3.

The Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro uses Bluetooth technology to link up with your PS3 and as easy as anything to sync up, as the PS3 found it in about two seconds, extremely quickly.

There are some great features on the Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro beyond just being a keyboard. The design of the keyboard is extremely sleek as the whole make-up of the keyboard looks nice sitting next to, or underneath your PS3. It has a great finish which matches the PS3 well.

The keyboard keys feel tremendous and sturdy. It features the standard keyboard set-up as well as specific keys for the x, circle, triangle and square buttons, as well as media playback buttons to ease the control over Blu-ray movies.

On the right side of the keyboard there is also a touchpad which works just as one does on a laptop keyboard set-up. This simulates a mouse nicely, making for extremely easy navigation, especially on web pages. The touchpad also features left...
 

High-Res Artwork for Heavenly Sword Sequel

50°
340w ago - At least we presume the artwork is for a Heavenly Sword sequel, since Ninja Theory has stated that it is a three game series. Have a gander at the High-res artwork after the jump.

Ninja Theory's website has been updated with a more mature and darker look, along with news of their next project:

Right now we're working on an exciting new concept that has got everyone we talk to buzzing. We can't say a lot except that it's going to be great to work on and should be even better to play!

It'll take all the things we loved about Heavenly Sword and make them bigger and better than ever before.

With such a strong Playstation 3 engine and vision for their Heavenly Sword project, could this be artwork for an exciting sequel set in a future post-apocalyptic time? A time that might be waiting for the immortal Heavenly Sword to save its people? Or does the concept art suggest a completely new IP?
 

Rumor: Home is coming very soon, in-game XMB done!

50°
340w ago - sev1512 claims to have some insider access to a variety of news relating to PS3 Home and in-game XMB features. He says that PSedge dev kits released an update and the new Home libraries were introduced.

It is claimed that a game must be able to integrate into Home and a game must be able to support accomplishments. Moreover, every game that is coming out soon now supports in-game XMB and those already out will have to be patched. All in all Home is said to be very close as well as in-game XMB.

To quote: Anyways, very exciting stuff happened on Monday (The one that just past). The PSedge dev kits, recieved an update. So whatever, we take a look, and the major addition, was that the TRC's were updated, and the new HOME libraries were brought in.

What does this mean? A TRC is a checklist of things a game must have for Sony to approve, in order for them to give the "Go-Ahead" on releasing the game on their console. This checklist has things like: Can't crash, Load times under 10 seconds, and things like that.

Two new ones were added: A game must be able to integrate into Home, a game must support "Accomplishments". Right there, two important things, the PS3 system for achievements is called "Accomplishments", and Home is coming out VERY VERY VERY Soon.

Then, we...
 

PS3 rear USB port mod unveiled!

250°
340w ago - MacSolidWorks undertook the painful process of modifying his PS3 in order to provide it with a rear USB mod for use with the Playstation Eye.

After searching high and low for instructions, he decided to just go ahead and perform the mod himself as shown in the video below.

To quote: I modified my PS3 to have a rear USB port for my Playstation EYE. I looked all over the web for instructions on how to do this but couldn't find anything. So I just did it myself.





Here are the results:

1. It works.

2. As long as you don't plug anything into the front USB port you've "borrowed" for the rear port, everything is fine.

3. If you plug something into the "borrowed" port, both peripherals stop working and you'll need to restart the PS3.

4. This setup cannot act like a true USB hub as it's just a pass-thru for one of the front ports.

Since this setup is not optimal and I'd like at least 2 USB ports on the back of my PS3, I'm currently working on a new mod that will allow a true hub on the back eliminating the aforementioned limitations.
 

PlayStation 3 Pulls An Impressive 180

250°
340w ago - It's less than two months since the launch of the PlayStation 3 in North America and Japan. The highly anticipated, supposedly ultra-powerful next-gen video game system from Sony has, according to just about every legitimate news source, flopped.

Availability for the launches had been pathetic, must-have software remains limited to Resistance: Fall of Man, the console is super expensive ($599 for the 60GB model), Sony is mired in debt due to the outrageous production costs incurred by producing the console, and to make matters worse, Microsoft and Nintendo are soaring.

The Wii caught on huge in Japan - and just about everywhere else - and the Xbox 360 had already enjoyed a one-year head-start, in which we saw more than a few great titles. Blu-Ray, still in its infancy, hasn't yet started to move much, considering the lack of PS3s in the marketplace. Whispers of "another Betamax" are rampant... Doom and gloom permeates almost every PS3-related news story, and editorials from jump-the-gunners say the console might actually fail. It's a dark time.

Fast-forward to one year later, 2008- Sales have been climbing for the PlayStation 3 for quite a while, and January 2008 marks the first month where the system outsells the Xbox 360 and essentially ties the Wii in North America.
