FuSa BETA v1.0: Play PSP Games Over Composite Cable

50°
334w ago - OldPrisoneR has released the initial BETA of FuSa, a Custom Firmware plug-in that enables Slim owners to play PSP games on their television over standard composite cable.

Under normal circumstances, the PSP would require that you use a component cable, so this plug-in neatly removes that restriction.

Tested on CFW 3.80 M33-5.. For compatibility information and usage instructions, refer to the included readme file.

Grand Theft Auto IV: Don't believe the Press!

50°
334w ago - The Telegraph headline is "Grand Theft Auto IV: Violence flares after launch" and they know the cause: A 23-year-old was repeatedly stabbed in Croydon, south London as he walked past 100 people queuing to buy the controversial game, in which players rob and murder their way through the criminal underworld.

The Mail, as ever, don't pull their punches with "Teenager stabbed in queue at midnight launch of ultra violent video game Grand Theft Auto IV". They too know what happened: A man was stabbed last night while queueing to buy one of the first copies of a controversial new video game.

The BBC report the stabbing but make no mention of any game.

The Press association, which many journalists will use as their source, headline with "Police hunt video game attacker" and say: Police are hunting a hooded man who stabbed a passer-by as he waited to buy a new edition of a notoriously violent computer game.

So you can see already that they have different stories. Was the victim in the queue or walking past? Perhaps the local paper can clear this up for us.

So to the Croydon Guardian who have the best headline yet: "Grand Theft slaughter". And they have a new slant on the victim: Queues of people waiting outside...
 

God Of War III To Feature Online Play?

50°
334w ago - Eagle-eyed reader Byron has pointed us towards a job listing on SCEA's Web site, for an "Online Gameplay Programmer", who will "join the team behind the critically acclaimed AAA titles "God of War" and "God of War II."

Interesting, interesting. That doesn't say online programmer, it says online gameplay programmer.

If this is indeed for GoWIII, and not some other project, anyone for a Kratos v Kratos battle for loin-cloth supremacy? Or perhaps a Kratos & Kratos co-op skip-along?
 

PS Blog: Don't worry MGO is not a Paid Subscription service

50°
334w ago - The US PS Blog has revealed the full details of the new map for MGO and the new gametype rule, Sneaking Mission.

Also, they have clarified that "MGO is not a paid subscription service, you can play online totally free right out of the box - we know some of you thought there might be some payment because of the last step of Konami ID registration, but that is to confirm your identity for future potential microtransaction content updates (you don't have to register any payment info right now anyhow)."

To quote: Hi all! Welcome back to Metal Gear Mondays! It's certainly been a busy week, and once again, we'd like to take a second to thank you for all the great compliments and feedback from our previous installments - and of course, your enthusiasm for all that is Metal Gear!

We'll pick up where we left off ... As many of you know, gameplay of the Metal Gear Online Beta for the PLAYSTATION 3 is well underway as of the time of this post - please see the last bunch of Metal Gear PS Blog posts for full details on the Metal Gear Online Beta program and content to date.

First, we'd like to clarify, once again, because we see people still asking about this - Metal Gear Online comes with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. It is not a separate product. Metal Gear Online...
 

Analysts: PS2 Not Dropping To $99 Any Time Soon

250°
334w ago - Analysts have agreed that we won't see the PS2 dropped to $99 in the near future in the US as the demand is still high. One analyst believes that once the PS3 it is compelling content like 'Guitar Hero' and 'Rock Band' that keeps the demand for PS2s up.

To quote: On Thursday evening, Pachter left us a voicemail, in which he said:

The real reason we haven't seen a $99 PS2 is that demand hasn't dropped enough for Sony to justify the price cut. Compelling content like 'Guitar Hero' and 'Rock Band' keeps the demand for PS2s up. I saw a 'Guitar Hero' PS2 bundle at Best Buy a couple of months ago for $189.

They're discounting 30 bucks if you buy the two together. I think games like that – that are kind of a one-off for people who haven't played a PS2 game before and will [make them] say 'Hey, I can buy a PS2, why not?' – [will help keep the price where it is.]

As long as you've got a couple hundred thousand PS2s a month selling, Sony doesn't feel compelled to make the cut. I think you will get the cut, because, frankly, Sony wants to differentiate the PS3. I think the PS3 comes down to $349, maybe $299 if they can afford it.

But they've just been selling four to five million PS2s a year in the U.S. so there's no reason to cut the price...
