Online Instruction Manual Hints At PSP-3000

250°
331w ago - While it is unrealistic to assume that Sony will announce a new PSP anytime soon, considering that the PSP Slim (PSP-2000) is still relatively new, more evidence that suggests a third-gen PSP is in the works has surfaced.

Poking around on the online PSP manual, one individual found a 65–13 GIF format image that denotes the text "PSP-3000." The site contains similar labels for the PSP-1000 and PSP-2000 series.

Is it just a creative mock-up or a logo that Sony is planning to use in the near future? Only time will tell...

50°
331w ago - GT5 Prologue has finally been released on the PlayStation Store in Europe.

Sony earlier apologized for the delay on its forums saying "We'd like to apologize for the lack of a PS Store refresh yesterday. Unfortunately we experienced some last minute technical difficulties and were unable to publish the new content as planned. We are working hard to resolve these issues and content will be refreshed as soon as possible."

Three Speech haved also chimed in with a statement, which is also out of date now too. "'Unfortunately due to some last minute technical difficulties, we were unable to publish the new content to the PS Store yesterday. We are working to resolve these issues and will let you know as soon as new content is posted," it reads.
 

Sony canned Facebook style platform for PSOne

100°
331w ago - Former Sony Entertainment President Chris Deering has said that a "secret Facebook-style web networking platform was being worked on behind-the-scenes by those responsible for launching PSOne."

The project was code named 'Moccasin 5' and would have allowed the PSone to run a "text-based community chat group with a special box called Net-Station that hooked up PCs to the TV."

He also said that they later worked on a PS2 concept called 'Central Station', which was planned to stream its own PlayStation TV channel back in 2002, but it didn't take off because of slow broadband uptake.

To quote: When asked what the biggest challenge of his career was, Deering said: "Getting Sony to believe that PlayStation could be a community online... We had a secret test program in Europe back in 1997 on PSOne, running a text-based community chat group with a special box called Net-Station that hooked up PCs to the TV.

"The project code name was 'Moccasin 5'. It operated across the major countries of Europe, and had quite a following, even from the US. "At Sony Europe, we later worked on a PS2 concept called 'Central Station', which was planned to stream its own PlayStation TV channel, back in 2002. But uptake in broadband took longer to reach mass market than we expected,...

331w ago - Below are the latest official details on the CoD4 map pack:

Since details on the maps have been pretty scattered throughout the internet, I thought I'd give you guys a comprehensive breakdown of each map in the upcoming Variety Map Pack for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare along with some suggestions on gametypes, classes, and a few more screenshots to look over; all in one location.

For those of you who don't know, these maps will be hitting in April and will be 800 MS Points (same pricing for PSN). Along with the map pack will be a few minor changes to the game, including a tweak to Clan Tags to re-allow special characters.

Individual DLC Map Descriptions:

Broadcast
Its size and alternating routes make "Broadcast" great for large team games. A large, multi-story television station with plenty of window vantage points creates the perfect setting for floor-to-floor combat.

The station is surrounded by extensive outdoor areas consisting of a long parking lot, surrounding buildings with sniping hiding spots and side-rooftop access to the top and bottom floors of the television station.

Creek
A large wide open village in the woods, "Creek" consists of heavy foliage, great for sniper cover: a deep ravine offers an excellent vantage point...
