Sony Adjusting Canadian PlayStation Store Prices

50°
311w ago - To coincide with this week's PlayStation Store update, Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced that it will adjust the prices on the Canadian store to reflect the current American to Canadian dollar exchange rate.

"We are continually looking for ways to enhance the player experience on the PLAYSTATION®Network, and downloadable content through the PLAYSTATION Store is just one of our areas of focus," said Grace Chen, Senior Manager for the PLAYSTATION Store.

"We anticipate that this price adjustment will meet the expectations of our Canadian consumers and provide them with a better PLAYSTATION Network experience."

That means all content on the Canadian store should be a few bucks cheaper tomorrow, thanks to the depreciating U.S. dollar. :P

Sony failing to deliver promised free PS3 consoles?!

400°
312w ago - A reader on a tech site is reporting that Sony are failing to deliver the free PS3's they were offering as a sweetener with Bravia TVs.

The customer says its been nearly 5 months and they have still not received the PS3 and Sony are offering no solution to the problem.

It is unclear if this is an isolated incident or more widespread.

To quote: Dear Blorge,

I would like to bring to your attention a matter that has happened to my grandfather of all people regarding Sonys Bravia tv offer. With every 1080p television sold they would give a free Playstation 3 away.

My grandad was already looking at a Sony 40" Bravia tv. The X series. by the way the TV is brilliant. The problem was with the playstation. He ordered the TV half way through December, and it took, after a month of delays might i add, a month to get here. We were told by sony we would have to wait for the TV to get here before we could order the playstation and it would then take 28 days.

With much help by our local Retravision my grandad has been persistent on the issue ringing Sony asking how long it would take to get here. It is now the end of april and it still has not arrived. We have contacted Sony several times asking the question but with no definite answer or real apology. I am very angry...
 

Sony: Eight Days to full production, Getaway in pre-production

50°
312w ago - Sony's London Studio recently revealed to a British paper that Eight Days is now ramping up to full production. The game was first shown at Sony's E3 2006 press conference and is a crime epic set in the desert of Arizona.

The studio also revealed that a small team is working on pre-production for the next iteration of The Getaway. When Eight Days is completed the bulk of the team will then work on The Getaway.

To quote: A crime epic from SCE Studios London. Set in the desert of Arizona, the game features eight days in the bad times of the criminal element.

The game features open environments that you can run in, with fully-modeled buildings that you can exploit when the action gets too heavy on the streets and outskirts.
 

How to get the most out of your PS3!

50°
313w ago - Just when you think Sony has shown its hand, it pulls out another wild card. Criticized at first for trying to cram too many features into the box and raising the price tag, Sony has continued to deliver even more features while cutting the cost.

While not every model of the PS3 has the full suite of features (memory card readers, WiFi), there are still more than enough new features to help you get the most out of your expensive PS3 purchase. And what Sony doesn't provide, crafty users are there to supplement.

Here are a few of the things we think will help you get started being a PS3 connoisseur.

Say Goodbye to DRM:

iTunes or Napster addicts know what a pain it is to pay for music and then find that you can't listen to it wherever you want. Thanks to DRM technology built into the audio files (something iTunes is slowly abandoning), you normally can't stream those files from your PC to your PS3, thus enjoying your music library in the comfort of your living room.

Well, now you can. After downloading Orb's Mycast technology onto your PC (which you can get for free through WinAmp Remote), and assuming you've already synced up your PC and PS3 over your home network, those music files will now be fully playable on the PS3. Problem solved.
