Sony Considers Adding Downloadable Comic Books to PSP Store

350°
297w ago - Sony has been querying the gaming community on the viability of a possible Comic Book reader and download service for their PSP.

To quote: Surveys were sent out with the following video (see below) attached.

Though the online "comic shop" is new, viewing comics on your PSP is old hat and rather frustrating, though not nearly as much as trying to read web pages on it. What this service/function needs is an auto "frame go-to and re-sizer". Perhaps it has one, but I couldn't gleem one from the video.

I say it every time when there's a PSP story and I'm saying it again,... stop adding stupid stuff to the PSP when all I really want is a second analog stick!




 

NVIDIA Licenses PhysX SDK for Sony's PlayStation 3 Console

650°
297w ago - Today NVIDIA announced that its popular PhysX technology will be available to all registered Sony PlayStation 3 developers free of charge.

To quote: NVIDIA announced it has signed a tools and middleware license agreement with Sony that makes the binary version of the NVIDIA PhysX technology available to registered PS3 developers.

NVIDIA Corporation today announced that it has signed a tools and middleware license agreement for PLAYSTATION(R)3 (PS3(TM)) with Sony Computer Entertainment Inc (SCEI).

As a result, the binary version of the NVIDIA(R) PhysX(R) technology software development kit (SDK) is now available to registered PS3 developers for free download and use on the SCEI Developer Network.

The NVIDIA PhysX software development kit SDK consists of a full-featured API and robust physics engine, designed to give developers, animators, level designers, and artists unprecedented creative control over character and object physical interactions by allowing them to author and preview physics effects in real time.

The continued adoption of NVIDIA PhysX technology by the world's leading content developers is resulting in games that not only look as realistic as possible, but also provides gaming experiences where the world's literally come to life: environments become...
 

Rumor: Sony Developing a Colorful LED Wand for the PS2?

400°
297w ago - A US registered patent filed by Sony Computer Entertainment clues us in to a video game controller sitting somewhere in Sony's R&D labs.

The unnamed input device has a LED on the front and an external power supply. Emitted light is captured by an inexpensive camera and translated into user input data.

Sony's interface program is unique since the device produces one or more colors of light which allows greater flexibility for differently lit rooms.

To quote: Since this information was revealed in a patent we don't know how Sony plans on using said device, if it ever surfaces.

However, multiple patent diagrams showcase the PlayStation 2 which already has a cheap EyeToy camera readily available. You might be thinking Wii Remote knock off, but Sony's controller may not be a wand.

Another diagram shows a different device using the same variable color LED emitting technology. This hypothetical controller is designed to fit on a finger, radiates light from multiple LEDs, and has buttons on the side. Ring controllers... the future of video games?

What do you think about Sony's light input device interfacing program? Could it keep the PS2 going strong past 2010? Should Sony port it to the PlayStation 3? Or scrap the idea all together?
 

Formula One Pushed Back on Sony PS3 And XBox 360 Until 2010

300°
297w ago - Got a Sony PS3 or XBox 360? Then there'll be no Formula One for you this year.

To quote: The latest issue of the UK Official PlayStation Mag reckons the PS3 version's been pushed back to next year.

And (surprise, surprise) now sources 'in the know' have told us the 360 version won't be out until 2010 either.

Our source said that Wii and PSP F1 games would be released later this year, but only because Codemasters doesn't "want to piss off the rights holders." Which really fills us with confidence.

True? Yeah, probably. Codemasters has shown off most of its 2009 line-up, but has given us nothing on Formula One so far. A delay sounds about right.
 

Sony: Developers Unrealistic About PS3 Price Cuts

50°
297w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment of America marketing boss Peter Dille has suggested that recent developers calling for PS3 price cuts are being unrealistic.

Chatting with [Register or Login to view links], Dille joked everyone in the dev community would love for the PS3 to be free so that they could just sell razor blades.

To quote: "Everybody in the development community would love for the PS3 to be free, so they could just sell razor blades," Dille joked, explaining that Sony have to make the console profitable, as well as growing the userbase.

Dille was responding to increasing pressure on the platform holder to cut costs, after EA Sports boss Peter Moore became the latest industry figure to hint that further price cuts were needed.

Despite these clamours, the Sony big wig said that no PS3 price cut can be expected soon. Nintendo, meanwhile, are planning to raise The Price of the Wii in the UK next month.
