PS3 is Linked to Quality Home Entertainment

50°
353w ago - In a recent interview with Brent Butterworth, editor-in-chief of luxury publication Robb Report Home Entertainment, he indicated that video game systems are rapidly becoming the center of home theater setups due to their ability to play CDs, DVDs, and in the case of PS3, Blu-ray discs. He commented, "Even the most extravagant custom home theater systems now often, if not usually, feature video games."

Once considered just for kids, video games are now a celebrated part of even the highest end home theater setups. The PS3, with its ability to play a multitude of media formats, including Blu-ray, makes it one of the hottest trends for this 2007 holiday season.
 

Why Final Fantasy XIII will be the best yet

353w ago - The latest epic adventure from Square-Enix

Taking place in the dual locations of Pulse (a scummy underworld) and Cocoon (a heavily regulated Utopia), Final Fantasy XIII features a trademark bewildering plot of political intrigue and warring factions, characters of steely determination and sudden mood swings, and a vast scope which will suck dozens of hours from your life. Here are the reasons why it will be an instant classic:

1) Battle Mode
FFXIII will retain the fast-paced, real-time battle system seen in FFXII, relying on command inputs to decide a scrap.

2) Moves List
Battle commands are selected from this rolling menu, and they're then stacked up in a queue.

3) ATB Points
Commands will cost ATB points, as in FFXII, but now you'll be able to execute orders as the bar refills.

4) Mystery Girl
Lightning is the codename of this mysterious girl on a mission to destroy the hovering city of Cocoon.

5) New Engine
The game is powered by the White Engine, Square-Enix's all-singing new game engine which will power new cutscene-like real-time visuals and awesome effects.

6) Watch the Meter
This appears to be the Overclock meter, which is filled as you fight. Once full, the selected character enters a trance-like...

PS3's RSX to shrink next month

50°
353w ago - According the Nikkei publication, Toshiba plans to switch the manufacturing of the PS3's graphics processor to a 65nm process from next month. The system is currently utilizing a 90nm process which has remained since the launch of the product.

To quote: According to a report from Nikkei late last week, Toshiba is planning on switching manufacturing of the PlayStation 3's RSX graphics processor to a 65nm process next month. Currently, the chip is manufacturing using a 90nm process, the same as it's been since the system's launch.

A smaller die size for the chip can mean cheaper production costs and less heat, contributing to lower prices for the consumer, and a quieter, more reliable PS3 system.
The latest versions of the system's Cell CPU are being manufactured using a 65nm process. It is widely believed that the switch to 65nm for the Cell is one of the main reasons Sony was able to drop the PS3's price down to $399 in time for the holidays.

Nikkei also reports that Toshiba is planning on beginning manufacturing at 45nm in the latter half of the next fiscal year, and speculates that the RSX and other PlayStation 3 chips are prime candidates for the new line.
