PS3 Theme Previewer out now!

50°
357w ago - To quote from polishpride212: With the feature of themes just being added, there are a lot of themes on the Internet, some good some not so good. So I was bored so I made this file that reads all the pngs and forms them into what looks like the PS3's XMB via Web browser.

There is a readme file in there but all you have to do is drop the html file and the spacefill.png into the sample>01 folder, launch your Web browser, and take a photo of the screen, and you will give everyone a preview of your theme with most of the icons, easily.

Here is the file. Please read the readme since there are a few limitations. This is what the preview looks like. I know it is not perfect, but I have only been working on it for about an hour.

K-Mart shoppers take 20% off PS3 hardware

50°
357w ago - Select K-Mart stores this week began to honor a 20 percent off coupon for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 hardware at brick and mortar locations.

Members of deal website Fatwallet.com this week confirmed that the coupon could apply to the latest Playstation hardware to provide a substantial discount to either the 40GB or 80GB SKU.

The coupon is a valid for one week between Nov. 11 and Nov. 17 on one item in the store.

The 40GB PS3, which features built-in Wi-Fi and a copy of Spider-Man 3 on Blu-ray disc, typically retails for $399. The 80GB version, which features limited backwards compatibility, is sold for $499.

Sony released the 40GB PS3 this month to spur sales at U.S. retail. The $399 option is the lowest-priced SKU to date and will likely attract buyers to the hardware and Blu-ray disc technology this holiday.

Sony last month said that losses caused by the PS3 game console may near $1 billion, an increase from a prior estimate of $876 million.

The company in Oct. recorded a 96.7 billion yen loss in the game division that was offset by a quarterly profit from strong electronics sales.
 

40GB PS3 sells 50,000 in first day in Japan

357w ago - Sales of Sony's PS3 video games console surged 300 per cent after the company released a cheaper model in Japan last week, according to leaked survey data.

Sony Japan introduced the new PS3 model with a 40GB hard disk drive on November 11. One day later, local PS3 weekly sales figures had soared from an average of 16,000 to almost 66,000.

The figures are contained in preliminary data from the latest edition of a regular survey by Japan-based video games publisher and market survey firm, Enterbrain.

The substantial surge in weekly sales comes despite the release of the console occurring on the last day of the week. It is unclear what proportion of the sales resulted from pre-orders.

PS3 takes top spot
The huge increase in sales enabled the PS3 to take the top spot in full-sized console sales from Nintendo's Wii console for the first time. The Wii typically sells less than 35,000 per week in Japan, although sales have risen to 37,500 following the release of the popular game, Super Mario Galaxy.

The 40GB unit retails for $100 less than older models. The new console also lacks some features, including a flash memory device reader, two of the original four USB ports, and backwards compatibility with PS2 games. The Japanese version of the 40GB PS3 features a new 'Ceramic...

357w ago - The long-hinted new Traveller's Tales IP set for release in 2008
The new franchise to follow Traveller's Tales successful Lego Star Wars games, which was hinted at over a year ago, and finally confirmed earlier this year, will be published on all platforms in Europe in 2008.

Following the developer's acquisition by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment last week, for which the Lego franchise will have been the prime sweetener, the company has released new details on the gameplay elements.
Players will be able to take control of Batman or Robin and explore Gotham City capturing several of the criminals found therein, including The Joker and The Penguin.

It will also be possible to construct vehicles, as in the Star Wars games, and play through the game in two player cooperative mode.
Pail Levitz, president of the Batman rights-holder, DC Comics, was pleased that the franchise would be expanding. "There's nothing more appealing to our youngest fans than the chance to be The Batman and the Lego Batman video game will provide a unique opportunity for them to immerse themselves in Gotham and Batman's adventures."

Although the existence of the Lego Batman game was only confirmed this year, a very strong hint was dropped at the BAFTA Video Games Awards ceremony in 2006, when Lego...
