Review: Chains Of Olympus Is The Best PSP Game Ever

550°
348w ago - Who says size matters: Chains of Olympus is every bit as good as its big console siblings!

Although it is an amazing piece of portable hardware, the Sony PSP has played second fiddle to the Nintendo DS Lite for a long time now. While Nintendo was moving ridiculous amounts of hardware and software, the Sony PSP was in constant catch-up mode.

But Sony's handheld has gained some serious ground in recent months. The library of titles has steadily expanded and now includes some bona fide hits. The slick new redesign was also a big boost and also worth considering is the fact that expanded functionality like Skype integration is now starting to see the light of day. There's no doubt that the PSP has a lot of momentum going right now and it's only going to increase with the release of God of War: Chains of Olympus.

One of Sony's most valued franchises, God of War is without a doubt an important cog in the PS3 machine and as you are about to see, some would argue that it is the most important weapon in Sony's arsenal. Releasing Chains of Olympus on the PSP was a brilliant strategic move on Sony's part: it's the perfect bridge between the first two titles and the new-gen God of War 3 and a potent reminder of the impact that Kratos can have on the gaming landscape.

Although it's been shrunken...
 

Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro Bluetooth Keyboard - PS3 Review!

200°
348w ago - It is never fun to try to type in things with your PS3 controller, whether it be names of characters in games such as Call of Duty 4, created player names in Madden, etc. It is also no fun to search the web on the PS3 without the use of a keyboard. Enter, the Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro, to cure all of these problems and more on your Sony PS3.

The Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro uses Bluetooth technology to link up with your PS3 and as easy as anything to sync up, as the PS3 found it in about two seconds, extremely quickly.

There are some great features on the Logitech Cordless MediaBoard Pro beyond just being a keyboard. The design of the keyboard is extremely sleek as the whole make-up of the keyboard looks nice sitting next to, or underneath your PS3. It has a great finish which matches the PS3 well.

The keyboard keys feel tremendous and sturdy. It features the standard keyboard set-up as well as specific keys for the x, circle, triangle and square buttons, as well as media playback buttons to ease the control over Blu-ray movies.

On the right side of the keyboard there is also a touchpad which works just as one does on a laptop keyboard set-up. This simulates a mouse nicely, making for extremely easy navigation, especially on web pages. The touchpad also features left...
 

High-Res Artwork for Heavenly Sword Sequel

50°
348w ago - At least we presume the artwork is for a Heavenly Sword sequel, since Ninja Theory has stated that it is a three game series. Have a gander at the High-res artwork after the jump.

Ninja Theory's website has been updated with a more mature and darker look, along with news of their next project:

Right now we're working on an exciting new concept that has got everyone we talk to buzzing. We can't say a lot except that it's going to be great to work on and should be even better to play!

It'll take all the things we loved about Heavenly Sword and make them bigger and better than ever before.

With such a strong Playstation 3 engine and vision for their Heavenly Sword project, could this be artwork for an exciting sequel set in a future post-apocalyptic time? A time that might be waiting for the immortal Heavenly Sword to save its people? Or does the concept art suggest a completely new IP?
 

Rumor: Home is coming very soon, in-game XMB done!

50°
348w ago - sev1512 claims to have some insider access to a variety of news relating to PS3 Home and in-game XMB features. He says that PSedge dev kits released an update and the new Home libraries were introduced.

It is claimed that a game must be able to integrate into Home and a game must be able to support accomplishments. Moreover, every game that is coming out soon now supports in-game XMB and those already out will have to be patched. All in all Home is said to be very close as well as in-game XMB.

To quote: Anyways, very exciting stuff happened on Monday (The one that just past). The PSedge dev kits, recieved an update. So whatever, we take a look, and the major addition, was that the TRC's were updated, and the new HOME libraries were brought in.

What does this mean? A TRC is a checklist of things a game must have for Sony to approve, in order for them to give the "Go-Ahead" on releasing the game on their console. This checklist has things like: Can't crash, Load times under 10 seconds, and things like that.

Two new ones were added: A game must be able to integrate into Home, a game must support "Accomplishments". Right there, two important things, the PS3 system for achievements is called "Accomplishments", and Home is coming out VERY VERY VERY Soon.

Then, we...
 

PS3 rear USB port mod unveiled!

250°
348w ago - MacSolidWorks undertook the painful process of modifying his PS3 in order to provide it with a rear USB mod for use with the Playstation Eye.

After searching high and low for instructions, he decided to just go ahead and perform the mod himself as shown in the video below.

To quote: I modified my PS3 to have a rear USB port for my Playstation EYE. I looked all over the web for instructions on how to do this but couldn't find anything. So I just did it myself.





Here are the results:

1. It works.

2. As long as you don't plug anything into the front USB port you've "borrowed" for the rear port, everything is fine.

3. If you plug something into the "borrowed" port, both peripherals stop working and you'll need to restart the PS3.

4. This setup cannot act like a true USB hub as it's just a pass-thru for one of the front ports.

Since this setup is not optimal and I'd like at least 2 USB ports on the back of my PS3, I'm currently working on a new mod that will allow a true hub on the back eliminating the aforementioned limitations.
