PS3 Supplies Running Dry, PS3 Price Cut and Slim Expected

50°
266w ago - According to trade publication MCVUK (linked above), supplies of the PS3 are running dry in the UK channels.

This adds merit to rumors that the PS3 is going to get a price cut and also that the emergence of the PS3 Slim is imminent.

To quote: Rumors and speculation have been rife for many weeks now, but MCV can reveal that Sony is clearing PS3 hardware stock from the channel ahead of what is expected to be a new price point introduced from early September.

A press conference at the Gamescom event in Cologne next Tuesday (August 18th) is expected to provide details of the price cut - and possibly the launch of the rumoured redesigned PS3 Slim.

But ahead of that, UK retail has already begun to comment on the current lack of hardware stock on the market.

Two of the UK's leading national retailers have confirmed to MCV that they have been told not to expect any further supplies of the console until later this month or early September.
 

Video: PlayStation Eye Chat - Critter Crunch for PSN

267w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a PlayStation Eye Chat video today on Critter Crunch for PSN.

To quote: When you last saw Critter Crunch, it was probably at E3 when Capybara's Nathan Vella walked us through the game's basics on the show floor.

Well Nathan is back, along with fellow Capy compadre Kris Piotrowski, to talk much more in-depth about Critter Crunch. Specifically, the duo describes the puzzle game's versus/co-op modes and their power-ups, how the foodchain mechanic works and the robust single-player adventure more. Plus, there's nice chunk of in-game footage included in the video.

And yes, there's plenty more barf, too. Strategic, rainbow-colored barf, if you will.

To quote: We managed to patch XBMC for Linux so that it runs on the XBox 360. It is still a proof-of-concept and does not have sound or 3D acceleration, but it runs!

This is a demonstration of XBMC (Xbox Media Center) running on an XBox 360 with Ubuntu 7.10.

Videos: PSOne Emulator PSX4iPhone Running on iPhone 3GS

273w ago - Today ZodTTD has shared a few preview videos of the PSOne emulator PSX4iPhone running on an iPhone 3GS. Also below is an earlier video of the GBA emulator gpSPhone running on the iPhone 3GS.

To quote: For those who have an iPhone 3GS, you're probably aware of how much faster this model runs over all previous Apple handheld devices. This is evident in my YouTube video posted in my previous newsbit of gpSPhone running on the 3GS.

I now have psx4iphone running very speedy on the 3GS. It's at the point where Final Fantasy 7 is fullspeed at very least without sound. The build is rough around the edges, as you can't switch games without restarting the emulator, and only memory card saves are currently working, no save states just yet. Both these issues are being worked on.









So how would you like to run psx4iphone on your 3GS right now, even without a jailbreak? Well you can! I can make a build for a limited number of people.

In order to run this build you will need a tool like DiskAid for PC & Mac to place games & bios, that you must supply yourself, in a publicly writable directory. It's simple drag & drop.

Still...
