Sony's PS3 is Catching Up, is Microsoft's XBox 360 in Trouble?

650°
299w ago - Sony's catching up, and it's only a matter of time until both consoles are battling for what really matters, and what should still really matter in the gaming world - games.

It's lately been about who's got the best online, but those will be almost identical sooner or later and it will be back to the basics.

Sony started off the PS3's life with some okay games, a lackluster online service and little to no DLC to extend the lifetime of their games. 2008 came along, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of the Patriots, Resistance 2, LittleBigPlanet and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift were all brought exclusively to the PS3 for the enjoyment of it's users everywhere. Heck, MGS4 received multiple Game Of the Year awards.

Not only were those awesome games added to it's library, it finally received a much-requested feature - the in-game XMB. Rumor after rumor of firmware updates, it's 2008 all over again! Cross-game chat and voice-messaging are coming to the PS3 this year.

There's no doubt in my mind. Sony needs to add a new firmware with new features, they've done so much with the PSP - now it's the PS3's turn.

Just those two added features, and the PSN will come just so much closer to Xbox Live. Not only will the PS3 come closer, but it doesn't have the damn failure rate! How long will...
 

Sony Unveils PS3 LittleBigPlanet 1.12 Game Update Details

100°
299w ago - Today SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor revealed the "Cornish Yarg" (aka PS3 LittleBigPlanet 1.12 game update) details as follows:

We don't yet have a fixed release date for this update, but it has now finished primary development so won't be too much longer. Additional fixes, particularly for online connection reliability and save game/profile size problems are already well into development and we'll bring you more news on that just as soon as possible.

This update addresses several outstanding issues with the game:

• There is a new music player which lets player's choose their own music from the XMB to play during create mode and in their Pod
• Improved decoration mode makes it easier to customize your Sackboy

New options to help prevent profiles becoming full of unwanted community objects:

•Option to delete all (unhearted) community objects and photos
• Option to select whether to automatically collect community prizes and photos
• A number of improvements have been made to make profiles more robust and to recover from certain errors
• We now support Japanese and Korean IME for text chat.
• Emitter prediction has been improved (this should help fast-moving projectiles e.g. in MGS levels)

Sony Aims for Simultaneous Digital PSP Game Releases in 2009

400°
300w ago - The head of PlayStation US marketing, John Koller, has revealed that Sony is planning on simultaneous digital versions of its PSP titles released alongside their UMD equivalents.

To quote: The head of PlayStation marketing at Sony America, John Koller, has stated that Sony would ideally like to see simultaneous digital versions of its PSP titles released alongside their retail UMD counterparts.

"In the back half of this year, we should see a good rise in the amount of content that comes to PSN for the PSP," he told Wired. "We're aware that most of the content thus far has been for PS3, and that's based on the usage model and who has been demanding that content.

"But as we continue, and there's more of a desire from the consumer for PSP content, we're going to really increase the size and amount of content that's available."
 

Sony's PSN Home is Still Plagued with a 'Go Anywhere' Bug

100°
300w ago - Probably most of you noticed something strange in PlayStation Home Square last time you connected to HOME.

In the image 6 people are walking on thin air or in places they are not supposed to be... This is even advertised inside HOME!

I won't say here how is it done but it is very - very annoying! Imagine playing Chess and someone walks over the table and places a bubble machine that obstructs both your views!

Now it's even possible to report people for "DISRUPTING GAMES"... I would prefer fixing the bug instead of the possibility to report people who do that, but hey.. it's not up to us to choose the right way to fix things!
