Videos: PS3 Slim is Slower Than the Original PlayStation 3?

750°
255w ago - As previously reported, we know that the the PlayStation 3 Slim uses half the power of its 'Fat' counterpart.

Now reports are coming out of the popular Japanese blog Ore-teki (linked above) that the PS3 Slim may actually be slower than its bulky predecessor.

Of course these differences may be caused by differences in harddrive, but in this case the maker of the video claims the same 7200RPM HDD is installed in each... which leaves room for firmware/hardware variations or simply random fluctuations.

Whatever the cause, it seems unlikely Sony will be admitting any undocumented performance difference between the models.

Below are some PS3 HDD and Blu-ray speed comparison videos demonstrating the apparent differences:
















 

Videos: New PS3 Ad Campaign: It Only Does Everything

650°
256w ago - Today Marketing & PlayStation Network Senior Vice President Peter Dille has unveiled the PS3 console's new ad campaign- It Only Does Everything.

To quote: I'm excited today to unveil our brand new ad campaign for PlayStation 3. This year is going to be a game-changing year for PlayStation.

Last week, we extended an incredible value proposition with the $299 price move and the introduction of a sleek new form factor for the 120 GB PS3. We've coupled this news with a truly unmatched content line up this year with some of the most eagerly anticipated games in our history.

But this is just half the story. Today we are laying down the final puzzle piece with a new marketing campaign for the PS3 and the introduction of its new tagline, "It Only Does Everything."

You may remember our [Register or Login to view links] from earlier this year where we introduced Dustin Pedroia's "Dear PlayStation" spot and our resident PlayStation expert Kevin Butler.

These new ads, created by our partners at Deutsch LA, birthed a new campaign in which we will have direct conversations with consumers about everything the PS3 can do. And as you'll see below, "It Only Does Everything."

We know many of you would...
 

Videos: Katamari Forever for PS3 - The Music

50°
265w ago - Today Namco Bandai Games Producer Kazuhito Udetsu has shared a few videos of the music from Katamari Forever for PS3.

To quote: I'm here today to give you a peek into the music of Katamari Forever. As always, Yuu Miyake was in charge of sound direction and he did a wonderful job.

Katamari Forever's soundtrack consists of remixes of past Katamari songs. Let me briefly talk about why this is. Since the first game, Katamari Damacy, was originally only released in Japan, we wanted Japanese singers who were well-known in Japan but nobody had heard from in awhile for whatever reason.

For the second game we wanted to do the same thing but with foreign artists. However, this didn't happen because of our lack of foreign friends and ability to negotiate.





For this game we thought it would be a good idea to have those tunes remixed or arranged by Japanese and non-Japanese artists as sort of a musical trilogy (Oh, did you notice that Katamari Forever is the third title for a PlayStation console? Not that it really means anything though.).





The most important thing about the remixed music is that it's clearly meant to be for a Katamari game. That includes Katamari-themed...
 

PlayStation Xi Final Videos Available, Hints of PS3 Trophy Room?

50°
267w ago - A few days ago Sony announced that their PlayStation Home alternate reality mystery dubbed Xi's secret was out.

The article didn't go into much detail due to spoilers, leaving people like myself who don't have the time nor desire to get into Xi wondering what it was all about. Thanks to SKFU, wonder no more!

To quote: You need all fragments to enter the big metal door in the Hub and then you have the choice. Destroy Xi or use Xi, watch the videos below + Jess' final video message.

After all the pain to collect all fragments and butterflies you gain 3 in-game trophies which are not even in the normal trophy system. So the thought of Xi to continue is near and if you now go to the manhole on the central plaza you can visit the lounge for people who finished XI. New quests are waiting for you there ;-)

3 trophies at the end of...
 

Updated: 17 Videos Direct from PS3 Home Beta

50°
309w ago - Update: Based on feedback received we wanted to clarify that HDR did not shoot these videos or have any part in their creation. They were sent to us anonymously out of the blue and are hosted at Photo Bucket, a popular file sharing website.

That said, Home is coming along nicely and we keep our fingers crossed its availability for everyone will be sooner rather than later. If you've applied for the next round of Beta testers, good luck!

We have a special treat for you this morning thanks to a generous anonymous tipster who put a lot of effort into what you're about to see.

The following videos were taken from the original Playstation Home Beta and the just-updated expansion. The newer videos are towards the top, including the trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as watched in the Home movie theater.

It should be noted that each "area" of Home such as the movie theater, game room and so on must be downloaded separately when entering them for the first time. At approximately 50MB per area this could take a serious chunk out of one's hard drive.

With any luck we'll have some more first-look Home footage to share in the near future. Until then, enjoy the whopping 17 videos of Playstation 3's Home Beta in action.
