Sony to Make an 'Electrifying Announcement' on April 27, 2009

100°
296w ago - Update: It looks like inFamous (coming May 27th) could come with an online BETA code of some sort for Uncharted 2's unannounced (and unconfirmed) multiplayer mode. We'll find out soon enough!

After jumping onto Sony's [Register or Login to view links] website, I noticed that they have a small teaser hinting something big is on the way.

They show pictures of inFAMOUS and Uncharted 2 in the short clip.

Are there new demos for these highly anticipated titles on the way? Or something bigger?

Only time will tell for sure, but feel free to speculate below in the comments.
 

EA Sports Complex Now Live in Sony's PlayStation Home

200°
296w ago - Here we go, from PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star via PlayStation Blog today:

The day has finally come! Phase one of the EA SPORTS Complex has been unleashed and it is high time that all of you sports fanatics log in to PlayStation Home, explore this hugely interactive space, try your hand at the available mini-games, and check out all the teasers and trailers that await your prying eyes.

Out of the proverbial box, [Register or Login to view links] has two casual multiplayer mini-games for you to challenge your friends to: A whole floor of poker tables and the new EA SPORTS Racing game.





The former allows for up to 8 players per table to indulge in high stakes tournament-style Texas Hold 'Em and the latter lets you put the pedal to the metal and compete for the best time against 3 other users in a formula-style race.

The Complex - much like the PlayStation Home platform - will evolve over time. Currently scheduled updates include the EA SPORTS Golf mini-game (where users can test their stick skills at an indoor driving range) leaderboards, poker bracelets and a rewards system. As new titles are announced, content within the space and additional game-specific achievement rewards will be added.
 

Speculation: The Real Deal on Sony's Next PSP Console

550°
296w ago - Sony has contended there is no PSP2 and they are telling the cold hard truth. There won't be a PSP2 coming for at least a couple more years.

That doesn't mean that some new PSP hardware isn't headed our way soon enough. Think more aesthetic changes, more along the lines of DS to DSLite but more substantial of a change.

We are not at liberty to divulge our sources. Rest assured all will be revealed during E3.

Let's take a look at some "Facts" from the Internet:

• UMD is dead. Sorry folks, UMD IS dead, they got this one right...
• Touch Screen. Many say that this is a given as this seems to be the trend the industry is heading towards. Well Sony boasts it's "Like No Other" and that is the truth, Sony doesn't follow trends, it sets them. There will be NO touchscreen in the next PSP.
• "Monstrous Hardware Specs" If that were the case, it WOULD be the PSP2, and the next PSP is NOT the PSP2, it's not the PSP-4000 either. In fact it's something entirely unique.

Now let's move onto the "Fiction":

• Release before Christmas 2009. We don't know an exact release date, but it's much sooner than anyone is expecting. One thing we are sure of is that it's definitely going to be before Holiday...
 

Sony: Piracy Has Taken a Big Chunk of Game Sales from PSP

300°
297w ago - Sony's Peter Dille has revealed that PSP sales have been severely affected by piracy. Dille noted that piracy is no good for anyone in the gaming industry, and the data from BitTorrent sites on how many copies are being illegally downloaded is 'sickening'.

To quote: It certainly makes business sense for Sony to switch to digital distribution, but one of the motivating factors for the new-found focus on digital distribution may be rampant piracy on the platform.

Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, believes that PSP sales have been severely affected by pirates.

"It is criminal what's going on," Dille tells [Register or Login to view links]. "It's not good for us, but it's not good for the development community. We can look at data from BitTorrent sites from the day Resistance: Retribution goes on sale and see how many copies are being downloaded illegally, and it's frankly sickening. We are spending a lot of time talking about how we can deal with the problem."
 

Sony: We've Got Many Cards Yet to Deal

50°
297w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America has dismissed its relatively poor March NPD results by deciding to focus instead on the PlayStation brand's future promise.

While three PlayStation titles made the US software top ten for the month, two of them exclusive to the brand, all Sony hardware was comfortably outsold by Microsoft and Nintendo platforms.

To quote: "We've got a confident plan ahead and have many cards yet to deal, so consumers can rest assured there's a lot to look forward to from PlayStation this new fiscal year," insisted SCEA's senior director of corporate communications, Patrick Seybold, in a statement issued to Kotaku.

"The best part of what PlayStation has to offer this year is a relentless string of AAA games. We've lined up mass entertainment appeal from the hard core gamer who can't wait to get their hands on a game like MAG, the industry's first 256-player shooter, to the casual gamer who wants to take their RockBand skills on the road via the PSP," he added.

"We're also seeing exciting preliminary numbers for PlayStation 2 with the recent price cut and we couldn't be more pleased with the continued entertainment value and gameplay the platform provides even...
