375w ago - A while ago we were all wondering what the sphere shaped logo featuring the buttons of the PS controller was all about... well know we know for sure, it is the logo for the Playstation Network as a recent advertisement indicates.
 

SEGA confirms Golden Axe is still on track for PS3!

50°
375w ago - Recent reports from Xboxygen.com and Kotaku.com, have led people to believe that Golden Axe: Beast Rider had become an Xbox 360 exclusive. However this is not the case.

PSU.com has contacted Sega directly and received word that Secret Level is working on both an Xbox 360 and a PS3 version.

When asked if Secret Level had dropped the PS3 version of Golden Axe, Sega's Danny Chiu responded stating, "Not true, it's coming to PS3 as well."

So that should clear things up, everyone can expect both a PS3 version and Xbox 360 version next year when the game hits stores late in 2008.
 

PSM Becomes Playstation: The Official Magazine

50°
375w ago - Kotaku's mention of the return of The Official PlayStation Magazine with a new name, PlayStation: The Official Magazine, a couple of weeks ago, what I didn't see is that it's going to replace PSM, the independent PlayStation magazine. Issue 130 of PSM arrived at my door today telling me so, even letting me know that at least the first new PTOM will ship with a Blu-ray disc of demos.

Ah of course, a physical disc of demos bundled with a paper-based magazine, that's exactly what the PlayStation 3 needs. If only the console had a high-speed digital distribution system for getting demos into the hands of end-users without having to buy a physical magazine and disc. If only it had a web browser built in that could show web content like a monthly web magazine and can even download audio and video files to, I don't know, a hard drive built in standard? And what about a handheld that had a web browser and cheap flash storage that could accept downloads of audio and video files, wouldn't that be a great handheld to write a magazine for? Why, a web magazine could make its stories even more timely, couldn't it?
 

The other shoe falls on the Sony’s PS3 chip sale

50°
375w ago - For the past couple of days, the news everywhere has been reporting how, Sony sold it's Cell Chip business to Toshiba: "Sony has sold it's billion dollar cell chip business to Toshiba after months of speculation. The deal will be finalized before Toshiba can officially operate facilities and production."

What everybody seemed to miss about this news -especially me– was that these 'advanced' Cell processors were in fact the obsolete chip. As reghardware.co.uk sagely reports, Sony reaffirms IBM as 45nm Cell partner: the upcoming 45nm Cell chip for the PS3 will have, "a lower power and lower cost processor for its next-gen games console.. Sony's agreement to sell its [only it's] Nagasaki processor production plant to Toshiba.."

That is, Sony dumped its outmoded Nagasaki fab plant on Toshiba, which now only can produce 65nm semiconductors and IBM will manufacture the new state-of-art 45nm Cell processor at its East Fishkill, New York facility for Sony's latest game machines.
