Sony Officially Launches the PlayStation 2 in Brazil Today

650°
248w ago - Hard to believe after Sony's PlayStation 2 console just turned nine years old it would finally hit Brazil, eh?

That is exactly what Sony did today, according to Kotaku (linked above), the PS2 has officially launched in Brazil.

To quote: "It's priced at R$799, which works out to be around USD$465. So, yes, it's expensive to buy video games in Brazil.

Our man Pedro tells us that with a nine year-old console only just launching, there obviously isn't an official PS3 presence, though he says Sony do sell some older PS3 games. For R$199 (USD$115).

Ever wanted to know why piracy was rife in South America, those prices might get you in the right direction."

Braid ($14.99)
Braid is an artful puzzle-platformer where the player manipulates the flow of time in strange and unusual ways. In each world, time behaves differently, and it is time's strangeness that creates the puzzles. The time behaviors include: rewinding, independent time streams, time that is tied to space, parallel realities, time dilation, and perhaps more.
Braid treats the player's time as precious; there is no filler. Each puzzle shows the player something new about the game world.

PlayTV Update 1.21 is Now Available for Sony's PlayStation 3

200°
251w ago - Today [Register or Login to view links], the Digital TV/DVR addon unit for Sony's PlayStation 3, has been updated to version 1.21.

A minimum of PS3 Firmware 3.0 is required to receive the update, and changes include the following:

• Support for Dolby Digital + for HD channels
• The recording of HD channels is now possible
• Multi-channel audio replay.
• Improved Standard Definition
• Using remote play improved
• Support for reading distance mobile
• Support for the Australian Digital TV

To quote, roughly translated: In addition to finally make compatible audio codec, movie fans can save their favorite series or movies in High Definition using the MPEG-4 HD. In contrast, export records in the XMB leads on an incompatible file.

Sony proves that patience is a virtue, the firm seems to refine each update box to take advantage of new real users.

Go to the menu "Update" your PlayTV to begin installing the software 1.21.
