Video: Flexible Screen from Sony Available

50°
300w ago - Sony has apparently developed an incredibly flexible 2.5" screen, which can do a whole lot of flexing and still be in perfect condition!

The video is below, and comes courtesy of RiftDisruptor via GameTrailers.

The caption simply reads: A small flexible screen from SONY.

Now bad indeed to demonstrate their constant advances in technology, eh?

Enjoy!



 

Sony: We Can't Depend on 3rd Party Exclusives, PS3 is Affordable

50°
300w ago - Mark Levitan, marketing and public relations manager for PlayStation Canada, has said that they "can't really depend on third party for exclusives anymore."

He does however feel that Sony creates enough of their own exclusives to set them apart from he competition. Levitan went onto say that he thinks the PS3's come down to a point where, for $399, it is certainly affordable.

To quote: Functionality is kind of hand in hand with price - you have to say to yourself, if you've bought an HDTV, 1080p resolution is important to you so maybe you want a Blu-ray player. If that's something you're considering, then obviously you're going to pick a PS3.

You can go to any chain store and pick up a Blu-ray player but for an extra 100 bucks, you can get a PS3. You get something that not only plays the best games but you can surf the Internet with it, download all your pictures to it, or listen to music. I think that functionality will separate us from our competition.

Sony: No Plans to Fix PSP-3000 Scanlines and Interlacing Issues

50°
300w ago - Just a few days back we reported on several users experiencing PSP-3000 Screen issues, including scanlines interlacing issues in games.

Today, Engadget has a brief official update to this concern as follows:

"Update: A Japanese Sony Computer Entertainment representative has informed us that the interlacing-like lines are just "features" of the new LCD, and currently, there are no plans to fix it with a future software update since it is in the hardware."

So there you have it, at least for now sadly. Below is a comparison picture for those who missed it in our previous news post.
 

PS3 Firmware 2.50 Incompatible with Sony Home Theatres?!

50°
300w ago - IGN Australia (linked above) is reporting that the new PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.50 is incompatible with their Sony amp/receiver and greets them with a black screen. As soon as they cut the 7.1 Sony amp/receiver supporting 1080p over HDMI out of the picture, things worked which to them is "utterly boggling". Sony is yet to comment on this issue...

To quote: Last week Sony released firmware 2.50 for the PS3. However, in a bizarre turn of events the latest firmware prevents the PS3 from displaying an image on some state-of-the-art Sony home theatres.

We installed firmware 2.50 yesterday only to be greeted by a blank screen. After much swearing and trouble-shooting we discovered it was the Sony amp/receiver that was incompatible with the new firmware. We were able to get a picture again by cutting the Sony amp out of the loop and going straight into the projector.

For the record the IGN AU PS3 setup includes a 7.1 Sony amp/receiver supporting 1080p over HDMI and a 1080p Sony projector. The fact that the new firmware renders the PS3 unusable with this top-line Sony home theatre is utterly boggling.

On a related note, while trouble-shooting the problem we hooked the PS3 up to the projector via composite and also found that it's currently only displaying a black and white image over this...
