Guardian: PS3 is a High-tech Gamble

50°
326w ago - Guardian writes: You can't knock the PS3 as a piece of a kit - it still works fine for me while I'm on my fourth 360 now - but you have to wonder if features like Remote Play - fiddly to setup, geekily impressive when it works - are symptomatic of a console that almost tries to do too much.

UK Playstation boss Ray Maguire has admitted what we already knew, namely that the PS3's slow start was due to the high RRP.

"The gamble that Ken Kutaragi took with the PlayStation 3 was to put in a high level of technology, so it has been a bit slow to market in some respects, but we're now seeing how people are starting to understand how the technology works. Historically, the installed base of any hardware platform has been proportional to its great gameplay, but also very attached to the RRP.

That was the second part of Kutaragi-san's gamble, as that hardware made the machine more expensive. But now we're in the second part of the PS3's cycle, and since the price came down, there has clearly been an uplift."

Clearly there has been a sales uplift but are people really "starting to understand how the technology works"? And more importantly do they actually care? Does your average Wii owner feel they are missing out not having Blu-ray? I doubt it.

You can't knock...

How would you like Wireless HDTV on your Sony PS3?

500°
326w ago - Reports indicate that Sony, Samsung, Hitachi, Motrola and more specialists have teamed up to form a joint industry development body to bring out a Wireless Home Digital Interface.

What this will allow is secure encrypted HD video delivery through multiple rooms and then some with less than one millisecond latency.

One member commented "If you have a TV in the home, that TV will be able to access any source in the home, whether it's a set-top box in the living room, or the PlayStation in the bedroom, or a DVD player in another bedroom."





To quote: What the flip is WHDI? Well, according to the Israel-based Amimon company on whose technology the standard is to be based, "A key ingredient of WHDI technology is a revolutionary video-modem that operates in the 5GHz unlicensed band to enable robust wireless delivery of uncompressed HD video (including 1080p).

"WHDI allows secure, encrypted HD video delivery through multiple rooms and other potential signal obstructions, such as people and furniture, while maintaining superb quality and robustness with less than one-millisecond latency."

Sitting on the board of Amimon is Dr. David Lee, the founder of the HDMI standard, so this looks like more than hot air.
 

Sony date The Last Guy headed for PSN in Japan

50°
326w ago - Sony Japan have announced that PSN title The Last Guy (314mb) will be available in Japan on July 31, for 500 yen. Below is also a gameplay video of The Last Guy, courtesy of killingthee via YouTube.

To quote: In The Last Guy Japan Premium, you play as Last Guy, who's come from the Himalayas to save the people of Asakusa, one of Tokyo's hot tourist spots, from attacking zombies. Your job is simple: find people remaining in the Asakusa area and lead them to special escape zones.

As suggested in the original teaser trailer from two weeks back, the game makes use of real life aerial photos of the Asakusa area. Judging by the few screenshots Sony handed out today and the new trailer video that was posted at the game's official site, gameplay appears to be viewed from a strictly overhead perspective.
