Want in the BETA for PlayStation Home? Download a PS3 Theme!

250°
319w ago - The long-promised PlayStation Home BETA expansion is rolling out soon. How soon? Sony announced today (linked above) that users who download a Home branded PS3 theme from the PS Store will be automatically entered in for possible participation in the ongoing BETA program... similar to what is being done for Japan.

Straight from Home director Jack Buser: Later today, the PLAYSTATION Store will be updated with a PlayStation Home theme. By downloading the theme, users are submitting an application to join the PlayStation Home BETA test community.

We will be using a variety of criteria including activity on the PLAYSTATION Network to determine eligibility for the BETA community. Existing Home BETA users worry not, as your accounts will transfer over to the extended BETA period.

Keep in mind that this all applies to North American folks only. Over in Euro-land, SCEE will be targeting the most active users on PSN.
 

Gamer opens up PS3 after a Year to see Dust Collection

50°
319w ago - What better way to celebrate your PS3 turning 1 year old than to open up the console, see what approximately 4000 hours of potential dust looks like, and then give it a clean! pumba512 did just that on the official PS boards (linked above).

To quote: So, my PS3 turned 1 not long ago.. so.. I decided to see what 1 year (about 4,000 hrs) of dust looks like in it, and to give it a clean.

This is a Aus 60gig, always been horizontal. (I have vacuumed the vents every week (give or take), and dust it off with a microfibre cloth almost religiously.. Never used compressed air on it)

It's home for starters (carpet floor).. So after that I have to say it wasn't as bad as I thought. But there was a lot of fine dust in it, and only a little bit of a clump under the fan on the cpu/gpu heatsink part, nothing but fine dust on the heatsink fins.

Bottom casing was very dusty (also found little bugs a mosquito..and a hair... yeah I dunno..) top of case was just as bad, under the Blue Ray drive was fairly bad (doesn't look like to much in the pics but I blew it without thinking to take pics)

The fan was covered in thick fine dust. Other things = screws on the fan were a little loose... I could move it around like 2mm.. (its pretty quiet now and doesn't vibe like it used to).. was...
 

Software Enables PS2 to Play Online Videos

50°
319w ago - A company called BroadQ LLC has unveiled a software application that allows the PS2 to play video content on the Internet. It is due to go on sale for $50 this fall.

To quote: In addition to these capabilities, users can customize Qtv. For example, while using API (application programming interface) available from online video distributors, users can set keywords related to their favorite videos on the Website run by BroadQ.

Using the company's system, users can choose and display videos related to those keywords on their terminals.

BroadQ is planning to release Qtv at US$49.95 sometime around fall 2008. Also, it is planning to disclose and sell its software applications for mobile phones and PCs at the same time.

In addition to selling the software by itself, the company is considering incorporating its software applications in set top boxes and other items manufactured by other companies.
 

Rumor: LittleBigPlanet PS3 Exclusivity in doubt, coming to PC too?

200°
319w ago - A shop worker has sent around the following image and explains he got the following display boxes in at work for Little Big Planet on the PC which is pretty strange as it was thought to be a guranteed PS3 exclusive and probably still is.

This is most likely just an error or perhaps some clever image editing....

To quote: Little Big Planet on the PC? Bwah? Reader Jacob writes: "Got these display boxes in at work for Little Big Planet on the PC, How Very Queer!!!"

Pretty sure this is nothing more than a screw-up (not on Jacob's part, mind you!) and rather certain we'll only be seeing it on the PS3, but yeah, LBP on the PC would be pretty neat. That is, if you own a PC and are excited about LittleBigPlanet. If not, then oh well.
