Reeves: PSP Piracy Drives Hardware Sales, Sometimes

50°
326w ago - It's clear that piracy on the PSP is a problem. We know it, and so does Sony Computer Entertainment Europe head David Reeves. But it's not all bad, at least for Sony, as Reeves admits that piracy on the platform has driven hardware sales at times. On the whole, though, he isn't happy about it, obviously.

To quote: There is a piracy problem on PSP. We know about it, we know how it's done. It sometimes fuels the growth of hardware sales, but on balance we are not happy about it.

Following up to his previous statement, Reeves said that Sony will "unveil new ways to combat piracy soon."

Sounds good, but it may be just talk with little action resulting, taking their previous efforts into account. Time will tell...

The PLAYSTATION 3 does have a decent amount of exclusives out right now. Most of them won't make you go "wow", but a few will. Those few, however, are usually the games made by Sony Computer Entertainment.

Rumor: Industry rumblings regarding Resident Evil 5

200°
326w ago - By now, you may have heard about the "Major RE5 Reveal at E3″ that Videogaming247 is reporting. Some more information has made its way to PlayStationLifeStyle.net.

Whether or not this information is true is unknown. However we felt it is our duty to give fans a heads up on a HUGE announcement that MAY be coming @ E3.

Please take this as a rumor as that's all it is at this point. No solid information on the subject yet.

From what I have been told, Microsoft is looking to pay Capcom an undisclosed amount, for timed exclusivity of Resident Evil 5. It is still not known if Capcom has accepted the offer... The information we got, was only that Microsoft has made the offer.

If this is going to be announced it will be @ E3. Similar to the GTAIV "showing of the tattoo" a couple of years ago. If this is true, all of you petition fanatics out there better get to work.

Remember this is just a rumor, and nothing is known for sure at this time. Personally I am hoping that this is NOT true.
 

Ferrari Challenge: The PS3 game your 360 could never do

300°
326w ago - Any console that can play the upcoming Ferrari Challenge, take one step forward. Not so fast Xbox 360! At least if System 3 CEO, Mark Cale is to be believed when he says, "The PS3 offers the most powerful opportunity in the global marketplace."

Barring some phantom super-console lurking in the E3 rafters, we suppose that's fair. Though, the fact that Sony's better established throughout Europe, and that continent's insatiable appetite for racing titles probably shouldn't be counted out either.

"1080p resolution is a better solution than just HD," boasts Cale while taking a light jab at the 720p Forza 2. Certainly, no one's clamoring for less "p", so news of this nature will surely do its part as red meat for forum trolls who absolutely obsess over tech specs.

Although, the very same people, those combing over every progressive pixel, may also take issue with the game running at 30 frames a second. Cale claims that you may need 60fps in an action game like Devil May Cry 4, but in a racing sim where you're heading forward at all times 30fps is more than adequate. And judging by our hands-on, we're inclined to believe him.

Performance aside, what does this technical powerhouse offer in terms of gameplay? Well, graphics are just the tip of the iceberg....
