PSN helps find stolen PS3, Unwanted Xbox 360 the replacement

50°
333w ago - The fiance of Dustin Waller bought him a second hand PS3 from a store in Cleveland, but little did she know it was infact a stolen system. However, the police were able to track the system whenever Waller turned on the system as the original owner of the PS3's PSN ID was still stored on the system. The police confiscated the system and Waller was compensated by the store with an unwanted Xbox 360.

To quote: Police appeared on Waller's door after the purchase, and they inquired as to how he had come across the system. According to the Salisbury Post, the police were able to track the system whenever Waller turned on his system.

The original owner of the PS3's PSN ID was still stored on the system, and it was set to auto-login when the system turned on. By tracking Waller's IP address, they were able to find him.

Waller is of course innocent in the whole debacle, but police confiscated his system nonetheless. While the police look for the person who sold the stolen system to the games shop, Waller was given compensation from the store he didn't want: an Xbox 360.

"Waller is appreciative of the offer from the store but notes the Xbox isn't nearly as expensive or sophisticated as the PlayStation."

GameSpy: PS3 is definitely beating 360 in some areas of online

333w ago - It used to be the console war was a question of getting out the sliderule and measuring comparative polygon thoroughput. Now, however, gamers - and even developers - are much more likely to try to measure the relative performance of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo by the online features their consoles offer.

Few have as good a viewpoint on that particular battle as Todd Northcutt, GameSpy's director of technology. Thanks to the company's position as the exclusive online partner for the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, as well as its middleware licensing agreements with Sony and Microsoft, Northcutt works closely with each manufacturer.

"I don't think you've seen the same pace of innovation from Microsoft as you have from Sony recently," he told Develop in a pre-E3 briefing. "It's been steadily improving the PlayStation 3 as an online gaming device and an entertainment device while the Xbox 360 has had its half yearly updates but there's nothing groundbreaking that's been released, other than a couple of changes to the marketplace."

"We have a really good relationship with Sony and it's great to see the evolution of the platform.

I think it's experienced a lot of evolution and in some places PlayStation 3 is definitely beating out Xbox."

As for the conventional...
 

Rumor: Hideo Kojima's account found on the PSN?

333w ago - The following video shows that if you try and add the one and only Hideo Kojima as a friend via PSN, the ID is instantly transformed into Old Snake. Could this be Kojima's real account, or just a bit of fun?

To quote from runandgun: He's denied me like 20 times in 6 months.

It takes anywhere from hours to days to get denied... also I've seen a short video of a guy being accepted by Old Snake and the account playing Lost Planet. So it is most likely not a bot and instead someone's genuine account.
