335w ago - Per Grace Chen (Senior Manager, PLAYSTATION Store) today:

Hey, everyone. It's time again for the PLAYSTATION Store weekly update.

Add-on Game Content:
PAIN Nigel Character ($0.99)
Meet the newest downloadable character Nigel, a British punk so full of rage that the only thing he doesn't hate is PAIN, and he hates the fact that he doesn't hate it. He's brassed off and ready to bang his head into whatever and whoever gets in his way (watch out for those spikes!). Well, it sounds like he's asking for for it, so give him a launch...and make it a PAINful one.

Review: GioTeck RealTriggers for PS3 improve play

250°
335w ago - The 'Playstation Journal' has conducted a review on the GioTeck RealTriggers for the PS3. They clip onto the convex triggers of the PS3 controller and add a concave curve which help your fingers stay securely on the trigger buttons.

Overall they are impressed and score them a 9/10.

To quote: GioTeck RealTriggers for PS3 are very good peripherals if you're up for making a change to the PS3 controller. Me? I Ordered them for fun - and I like them.

They slide/clip on to the convex triggers and add a concave curve, helping your fingers stay securely on the trigger buttons [people were complaining that their fingers would slip off]. Other than adding security for your fingers, that's about it. If you want to revert back to the old triggers' feel, removing the clip on triggers couldn't be easier.

If I was made to point out one downside to them, I would say that they poke out a bit, making it look a bit weird. That, and they could have covered up the underneath, it looks ugly.

One thing which can be taken into gaming consideration is that when the controller is placed on the floor, the two triggers aren't going to be pressed against the floor, causing the buttons to activate [I've had this problem when watching videos on the PS3's browser and the view is zoomed on something...[/I]
 

Sony Bringing Direct PS Store to PSP this Fiscal Year

50°
335w ago - We finally have an idea of when the PSP accessible PS Store will launch: this fiscal year. Previously detailed in a GDC presentation last year, the PSP Store will allow consumers to download PSN offerings direct from their PSP via WiFi connection.

At its marketing conference in Japan today, Sony said that the functionality will be made available through a firmware update.

The company's 2008 fiscal year ends on March 31, 2009, so the launch date could be anywhere from now until then, though we're personally hoping it hits before the end of this year.

Further details are available via the Playstation Business Review PDF file.
