Qimonda starts volume production of Rambus XDR DRAM for PS3

200°
294w ago - Qimonda, the second largest DRAM company worldwide, has announced that they are mass producing XDR RAM modules for use in the PlayStation 3. An article on EDN.com is suggesting that Qimonda might be mass producing 512mb XDR RAM modules that they first showed off earlier this year. Current models of the Playstation 3 offer only 256mb of XDR RAM, which some gamers, industry analysts, and developers have complained about.

What many of those people don't understand is that the true power of the Playstation 3 doesn't lie in the memory, but in the eight-core architecture of the Cell processor. The Cell processor can handle a lot of physics objects because it's very math intensive, but struggles with memory intensive coding, which challenges developers to completely rework their game structure.

100°
298w ago - Per Harvard Bonin (Senior Producer, SCEA): Its been quite a busy couple of weeks in Warhawk. We just released Warhawk on the PlayStation 3 Greatest Hits line. It's really a lot of fun for us to be included and we hope that a lot more players give the game a try. Check out this Training Video from Brady Games to help out these new players.

Also, we recently released Patch 1.4 and the Global Gaming League had its finals!

If you have been watching GGL's Warhawk tournament, you would know that the semifinal matches between Gods Illest, [WAR!], (ONI) and ARMED^ASSASSINS went down this weekend. However, instead of waiting a few days to schedule the finals, the victors, first-seeded [WAR!] and tenth ARMED^ASSASSINS, decided to play their finals match this weekend.





The end result? An upset by ARMED^ASSASSINS which knocked off [WAR!] and took the championship!

Congrats to ARMED ASSASSINS! We at Sony and Incognito recommend you steer clear of them in the game unless you like being shanked!

301w ago - Update: The Official Web site of Digital Extremes, better known as the developer who brought us Dark Sector but who are also helping in the BioShock port, displays the very same box art. This must at least be confirmation that Home will be out before BioShock releases in October.

On Monday, SpikeTV are set to reveal BioShock PS3 goodness, making us unconventionally excited about what most would call a "port." But hey, one of last year's most critically acclaimed games is meeting an entirely new audience. A glance at the box art reveals another reason for PS3 owners to get excited.

On his very own blog, Geoff Keighly hints at what will be in store for BioShock fans this Monday;

Another game set to debut on the show is BioShock PLAYSTATION 3. Now I know what you're thinking...'why are you guys making a big deal out of a port?' Well I can't spoil the surprise just yet, but let me tell you there is way more to this game than you might think. There have been hints about some "exclusive features" in the game and on Monday night I'll finally reveal the details on Spike - and of course show you the first real gameplay footage from the PS3 version.

So what could this exclusive content be? For a start we know...
