231w ago - According to TheSixthAxis.com (linked above), Sony's recent PS3 Firmware 2.80 Update may have included yet another 'hidden' feature that was not uncovered in the changelog compilation... specifically, Cinematic 21:9 TV support.
To quote: "The first 21:9 TV was unveiled this year and is now available if you've got the cash to splash, and whilst the 2560 x 1080p resolution set sounds like a blessing for movie fans not happy with black bars on their 'regular' widescreen TVs, game developers surely won't pick up the better-than-HD resolution for some time.
That won't stop Sony pushing the actual XMB display out further than 1920 pixels, though - as far as we know HDMI 1.3 - the format used in the PS3 firmware at the moment - can support the resolution just fine and hopefully there's no reason why the PS3's OS can't too."
That being said, Sony has made no comment on this yet so it's essentially speculation until someone with a new ultra wide-screen 21:9 TV can confirm it.
231w ago - According to Wikipedia, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is heading to the PlayStation 3 and PSP Go consoles... the latter just coming to light over the weekend.
A mysterious screenshot was discovered by ScrewAttack from the forthcoming issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, which suggests the reference to Sony's PSP Go Wikipedia entry may indeed be accurate.
For the time being it's being labeled as a rumor though, as this could simply be the Uncharted trailer playing on a PSP Go.
However, the wording above the screenshot "New screen from Unchar... for the..." begs to differ. Of course only official verification from Sony/Naughty Dog will confirm this rumor as true, so as always time will tell.
232w ago - Recently it was reported that Sony patented software-based PS2 emulation technology. This got users excited who own 80GB, 40GB and 160GB PS3 consoles without backwards compatability.
Although the article speculated that the upcoming PS3 slim may utilize this technology, today a German Web site has supposedly gained comment from a Sony employee, to quote:
This brings us to the German Web site Demo News, which claims to have gained comment from a Sony employee stating that full backwards compatibility is coming to US PS3's as a firmware update in the "next few weeks."
If this rumor is true, it will make many newer PS3 console owners very happy indeed!
