Sony Encourages Buying PSN Content Over XBox Live Subscription

400°
289w ago - Sony continues to play the value card in its fight against the Xbox 360. This time, instead of focusing on hardware, the company shows you what games you could buy if you weren't paying for Xbox Live.

During CES, Sony gave press the argument that the PS3 was actually a great deal... considering all the features that came with the system. That only works if you want those features, and a $400 system is a hard sell even if it comes with an Eva(n?) Longoria love-doll.

Sony has now made a second argument that makes much more sense: look at what you can buy for the cost of Xbox Live.

Microsoft's online service costs $50 a year, if you don't find a card on sale, and Sony wants to show you what you could be buying with that money if you were online with your PS3. You have to give it to them: $50 on the PlayStation Network gets you some pretty great stuff.

"Rather than paying a $50 subscription fee that competitors charge for on-line services, PlayStation Network users could put that money towards a variety of content," the company claims. What could you get?

• PAIN ($9.99)
•Elefunk ($4.99)
•Guitar Hero Classic Rock Track ($6.25)
•LittleBigPlanet™ Metal Gear Solid - Level Kit ($5.99)
•Episode of Afro Samurai | Season 1 ($1.99)
 

Sony Could Clean Up with Backwards Compatibility on PS3

400°
289w ago - What is it above all else that the PlayStation 3 is missing? Access to the vast PS2 library. Backwards compatibility is the most obvious chink in the PS3 armour.

It is a strange strategic decision by Sony not to have a download service running by now considering that rivals Nintendo and Microsoft both have backwards compatibility in their respective consoles. The replaceable HDD on the PS3 makes the system ideal for a download service as space shouldn't really become an issue.

Lets briefly cover why such a service would be a guaranteed hit:

•The PS2 Library - There are thousands of games in the PS2 library and there are many classic games among that number. Giving gamers the chance to replay or experience for the first time games like Kingdom Hearts, ICO, or Shadow of the Colossus is surely a recipe for success.

•Cheap games - Obviously the pricing in such a service would be the most important consideration. Pricing would have to be very competitive. Even though Sony could populate the service with classic games the fact remains that the majority of them will be several years old. That has to be taken into consideration above all else so I would suggest a maximum price of €9.99.

I think that would be reasonable as you can already get PSOne games on the...
 

Sony PlayStation Home Update: Ninja And Pirate Costumes

50°
289w ago - PlayStation Home Community Manager CydoniaX shared news today of new virtual items at the PlayStation Home mall, including ninja and pirate costumes as follows:

We've got some big plans for PlayStation Home coming up, some of which may involve ninjas and street fighters. We thought that would grab your attention. It did for us at SCEA.

And as we continue to expand upon existing content with PlayStation Home spaces, we've introduced a leaderboard for the Red Bull Air Race in the Red Bull space.

We recently made the most of these new leaderboards with a contest to see who could get the highest scores. Shopaholics rejoice too, you'll find some cool new virtual items at the mall, including ninja and pirate costumes.

As you may have heard, Capcom is set to expand its blockbuster franchises globally with Street Fighter and Resident Evil within PlayStation Home.

Resident Evil 5 fans can launch straight from PlayStation Home into the game. And for the Street Fighter fans, Capcom is bringing Street Fighter IV costumes and additional themed content to PlayStation Home, much of which will be unlocked through in-game actions.

I know that is a lot to digest, but that's not all ... in the next few months, gamers will find even more clothing, furniture...
