Play TV may cause Game Slowdown if you Record while you Play

50°
309w ago - Sony's PS3 digital recorder Play TV has landed in the laps of UK gaming journalists, and there are more downsides than revealed earlier.

If you wish to record while you play, there is a warning that gameplay may be effected including slow-downs. In addition to this, the build quality of the device isn't too impressive and there is no 1080i recording and plenty of DRM.

To quote: But there are a few downers. In order to allow recording while you're doing other things on your PS3 (say, playing Haze) you have to allow 'background recording', and there's a warning that this may cause slow-down and effect gameplay.

Then there are those bomb-shells that we revealed a few days ago, namely no 1080i recording at launch and the inclusion of pesky DRM. Although we haven't yet had the chance to test it with our PSP, this will mean you'll have to record shows via Remote Play to watch them on your handheld console rather than just sticking them on a Memory Stick and transferring them.

Play TV will be hitting shelves on 10th September for £70, but we'll bring you a full review before then to let you know whether or not to splash your cash.

10 Reasons Why You'll Want to Cop Bionic Commando

50°
312w ago - It's no secret Bionic Commando was one of the hottest games back in the day. The popular franchise has been around since 1988 and to be honest I was beginning to lose hope that we would ever see a sequel for the next-gen console. That was until it was announced in October that Bionic Commando would be released for XBOX 360, PS3 and Windows.

So you already know I've been following it closely and can't wait to get my hands on it. If you're a fan of the franchise you won't need to be convinced, but just in case you are having doubts read on and you'll see why I am so hyped about it.

1. The Gameplay

Don't get it twisted we all love the old 2D arcade versions of the game, they were plenty fun for the time, but the thought of swinging around in open world 3D environment with the Bionic Arm has to get you hyped. In the old versions Nathan "Rad" Spencer was unable to jump, he could only use his arm to get from place to place. Now you will be wrecking havoc in vertical and horizontal environments. Let's just say the dude has been upgraded in a major way and there are barely any limits on what you can do.

2. Multiplayer

It was just recently confirmed that on-line modes will support 10 vs. 10, which is plenty enough if you ask me. Adding more players just adds...
 

How would you like Wireless HDTV on your Sony PS3?

500°
313w ago - Reports indicate that Sony, Samsung, Hitachi, Motrola and more specialists have teamed up to form a joint industry development body to bring out a Wireless Home Digital Interface.

What this will allow is secure encrypted HD video delivery through multiple rooms and then some with less than one millisecond latency.

One member commented "If you have a TV in the home, that TV will be able to access any source in the home, whether it's a set-top box in the living room, or the PlayStation in the bedroom, or a DVD player in another bedroom."





To quote: What the flip is WHDI? Well, according to the Israel-based Amimon company on whose technology the standard is to be based, "A key ingredient of WHDI technology is a revolutionary video-modem that operates in the 5GHz unlicensed band to enable robust wireless delivery of uncompressed HD video (including 1080p).

"WHDI allows secure, encrypted HD video delivery through multiple rooms and other potential signal obstructions, such as people and furniture, while maintaining superb quality and robustness with less than one-millisecond latency."

Sitting on the board of Amimon is Dr. David Lee, the founder of the HDMI standard, so this looks like more than hot air.
