Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds - Now with Voice Chat via PSN!

50°
324w ago - SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda shared the following via PS Blog today:

Happy Friday Hot Shots Golfers! It's been a while since our last HSG post, but we've been busy testing new features, new costumes and some very special items for a holiday surprise!

As you might have noticed, we've started to roll out some new costumes for the wonderful cast of Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds. The first batch was a hit, but with the second batch we wanted to throw in a little something extra.

Something that had a little more kick. Something that could be heard above the chatter... something like VOICE CHAT.

Yes, your eyes do not deceive (and pretty soon your ears, too): the Clap Hanz team has been arduously devoting their time to make sure that Voice Chat, a feature you the fans have been asking for, was flawlessly implemented into Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds.

So now all users, for the low price of FREE, will be able to enjoy a friendly tit-for-tat with their fellow Match Mode players. Simply download the most recent Hot Shots Golf update (available now through any interwebs connections near you), go online and start chatting away with your fellow golfers.

I envision it to be something like this

P1: Nice putt
P2: Why...

USB 3.0 Details Confirmed, 5Gbps and About 12 Months Away

400°
324w ago - Just under three months ago a preliminary USB 3.0 FAQ was published, and today both USB 3.0 final details and a date has been confirmed.

USB 3.0 is set to arrive during late 2009 or early 2010. It will be able to transfer at incredibly fast speeds of 5Gbps per second, so that's about an average sized movie every second.

To quote: USB Implementers Forum President Jeff Ravencraft let loose with some information about USB3.0, which is expected to appear late 2009/early 2010.

It'll apparently be able to transfer at blisteringly fast speeds of 5Gbps per second (roughly 600MB per second), or for media junkies that's about an average sized movie or eight average sized music albums EVERY SECOND.

In comparison USB 2.0 takes ten times as long, and we pity the fool who's trying to shift this sort of data using USB 1.1 on a knackered old laptop.

Negotiations are apparently afoot to work out which operating systems will get the technology, though Microsoft is obviously at the forefront. The word so far is that at least Windows Vista should get support, if not XP as well.

To be honest if Microsoft is still trying to push people towards Vista in a year's time we...
