Sony Takes Legal Action Against Datel for PSP Lite Blue Tool

50°
298w ago - Just under [Register or Login to view links] Datel announced that the PSP-3000 was hacked via Service Mode using a device known as their Lite Blue Tool.

However, Sony Europe is now taking legal action against Datel for their much-hyped PSP 'Lite Blue Tool' Battery.

Datel notes that they "will inform customers about availability of this product when this situation has been resolved" so perhaps it will eventually hit the market.

Currently, the new 'alternative' is known as the Max Power Digital, which will put the PSP-2000 in Service Mode and serve only as a battery replacement for the PSP-3000.
 

Sony Chart Reminds Gamers of the PlayStation 3's Offerings

100°
298w ago - An external SCEA PR rep has told Edge-Online why a chart (below) was released by Sony indicating that the PS3 was cheaper than Microsoft's XBox 360 and Nintendo's Wii console.

The rep noted that it was thought to be a good time to remind everyone of "our strong offerings".

To quote: An external SCEA PR rep From The agency Porter Novelli told us the company released the chart because they "thought it would be a good time just to remind everyone of our strong offerings," which automatically implies that they feel people have either forgotten about the PS3's inherent value or never seriously considered the PS3's value, due to the higher price tag.

It's highly likely that amidst this PS3 price-drop rumoring that Sony wanted to tell the core audience, "Hey, don't wait for a drop, it's a steal at $399, honest."

I'd argue that today PS3 is a fine value, on par with Xbox 360, particularly for gamers in 2009, when it appears that Sony's internal developers will really begin to bear fruit.

Nevertheless, I'm glad I'm not the one that has to figure out how to get that value message across to consumers.

$10 HKD isn't much, it's like $1.30 US, but it's interesting to see Sony run such a promotion. Sure, it's not enough to buy a PlayStation Network game, but you can get a virtual item by finding the money god. Or you can save your money and hope Sony Computer Entertainment Asia runs more of these so you can get a free game.

No word if Sony is going to try this strategy in other regions of if this is only a Sony Computer Entertainment Asia strategy.

Sony: Let Me Introduce You to the Concept of PS3 Advertising

200°
298w ago - Hey Sony, you may not be aware, but you've got a shot at a mammoth year in 2009.

You've got quite the software lineup - your PlayStation 3 exclusives greatly outstrip the competition - and you've got plenty of momentum with the likes of Blu-ray, PlayStation Home, and the ever-expanding Network.

Wait... we don't need to tell you. You keep telling us. But we're not the ones you need to convince; you need to convince the mainstream populace.

As the years have progressed, you managed to chip away at the numerous arguments built against the PlayStation 3, and that includes classic complaints like lack of software, price, and Network that isn't as robust as Live.

The games are here, you've dropped the price several times (could use another one, but whatever), the Network has Home, the video delivery service is great, and an awesome set of online content awaits all owners.

But there's one last drawback that needs to be conquered: the marketing and advertising that never seems to measure up. Recently, you completely dropped the ball in pushing Resistance 2, and although you said there'd be a huge campaign for LBP... well, we haven't seen much (excluding the picture below).

In comparison to what we've seen for Gears of War 2 and other Microsoft and Nintendo...
 

COD 6: Hostage Multiplayer Game on Sony PS3 and XBox 360?

100°
298w ago - We have read many ideas for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, some about the weapons and others about the game type's in multiplayer. One of the best ideas we would like to see is a hostage online game.

You could save your hostages from the other team before they get killed or something along those lines. Maybe even have the hostages have the option to try and escape from their captors.

Another great idea in COD 6: is to have the lobby for the Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 updated, especially on the PS3. When you go to find match it would be good to have it setup like this:

Find Match - Countries - Core/Hardcore - Game Modes

Playlists for different countries or regions should be added because people would rather be playing against people from their own country and have a good connection, other than being thrown into a random match with people from another country and have a bad connection.

Would you like a hostage game type in multiplayer and a choice of countries when finding a match? Comment below!
