200°
265w ago - Sony's PlayStation Home platform group director Peter Edward has told SPOnG (linked above) that PS3 Motion Controller support for Home is likely, though not in development yet.

To quote: Peter Edward, director of Sony's PlayStation Home platform group, has told SPOnG that motion controller support for Home is likely, though not set in stone just yet.

Asked whether we'll see a use for the wand popping up in Home, Edward told us at the GameHorizon conference in Gateshead that "I'm sure that at some point in the future, it's something that will happen".

Explaining what the circumstances would have to be, Edward said, "That's something that I guess there would have to be a case that instigates that development. If one of our internal teams or a third party or whoever, had an amazing way that that could be implemented within Home... and there was sufficient impetus behind it, then we would have to work together on that.

Sony Finally Finds Smart Marketing for the PlayStation Portable

250°
266w ago - It appears the idea of console exclusives is over with the recent announcement of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PlayStation Portable.

The Nintendo DS version has been out on the market since March 17, 2009, plenty of time for the Grand Theft Auto fanatic to either purchase the game for the DS or go and buy a Nintendo DS just so it could be played.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is the third GTA title to release on the PlayStation Portable after GTA: Liberty City Stories and GTA: Vice City Stories. It makes sense on a business level for Sony to start pushing for more titles on the PlayStation Portable, and even more so the upcoming PSP Go.

Sony needs to properly support the PSP Go from launch. They cannot afford to release the new PSP and leave it on the market for a couple months before properly supporting it. This is primarily because of the PSP Go's lack of UMD drive.

Granted, gamers could use the PlayStation Store to download PSOne Classics or even some older PSP titles onto the PSP Go, but where will the money be at? The new downloadable titles.
