Sony Unveils 400-Disc Blu-ray Changer at CEDIA

50°
312w ago - Sony has put on show its second generation Blu-ray disc changer, which is capable of holding up to 400 Blu-ray discs, CDs or DVDs.

To quote:

The beastly device can gobble up 400 Blu-ray discs, CDs, or DVDs. The first generation of the device that debuted at CEDIA in 2007 was massive–about the size of a refrigerator.

The new Blu-ray Disc Mega Changer prototype has a form factor much more like one of the home theater components we are used to seeing in our entertainment systems--albeit a very bloated one.

You could think of this as the John Candy of Blu-ray changers.
 

Another Sony Star jumps to Atari: SingStar's Paulina Bozek

50°
312w ago - Looks like the French games company is targeting proven Sony stars. Their high-profile acquisition of former Worldwide Studios giant Phil Harrison took the industry by surprise. Many of us were shocked to see such a successful reign at Sony Computer Entertainment move to a company with a track record like Atari.

Today, it's been revealed that the gorgeous Paulina Bozek, creative director of Sony's popular SingStar franchise, is also finding a new home at Atari. She will head a new studio, based in Hammersmith, London, that will focus on developing other mass-market games for "online-enabled devices," including PCs and consoles.

"I am very excited to be joining Atari at this pivotal time for both the company and the industry," said Bozek.

Phil Harrison, Bozek's former boss at Sony, added: "This is a significant step in expanding Atari's online game development capability.

Paulina is one of the industry's most respected creative leaders with an outstanding track-record of commercial and creative success and I'm delighted that she will bring her unique vision, consumer insight and proven ability for creating amazing entertainment experiences to Atari."
 

16 PS3 Tricks Sony Doesn't Tell You!

500°
312w ago - Months ago TechRadar released a list of 10 tricks that Sony hasn't revealed to no one. Well guess what, that's not all! There are now 16 PS3 tricks that Sony hasn't mentioned to anyone. Are there still more secrets that Sony is trying to hide from us. We will find out soon...

(1) Play games from any country
Harbouring a desire to play Super Gaiden Ninja XI? Now you can. In fact, you can handily play any PS3 game from any country. On holiday in the States and spot the latest release at a bargain dollar-to-pound price? Help yourself. So far, at least, PS3 games aren't being region coded. That said PS2 and PS1 games are so you can't play a US title on a Euro console.

And let's not forget that Blu-ray movies are region-coded so the barriers aren't completely down yet.

(2) The secret video reset
One of the most annoying aspects of the PS3 are its video settings. Take it up to the bedroom portable or round to a friend's house and there's a good chance that you won't be able to see anything on screen because your 'new' TV is running at a different resolution or using a different cable connection. And - because you can't see anything - you can't change it.
 

Sony introduces pricy BD-S5000ES Blu-ray Player at CEDIA Show

50°
313w ago - It's appears the pricy Pioneer BDP-09FD now has some competition from Sony.

Sony surprised the industry at the CEDIA consumer electronics show in Denver by introducing expensive new Blu-ray players instead of cheaper ones. One of the new models is the BDP-S5000ES which will be offered worldwide in December for $2,000.

Andy Parsons, senior VP of product planning at Pioneer Home Entertainment Group and U.S. chairman of the Blu-ray Disc Assn. Promotions Committee, said that "Blu-ray player sales were 50% ahead of total 2007 sales."

Parsons also countered reports that said sales weren't meeting expectations, and said that any problems in meeting expectations were due to supply shortages.

PRESS RELEASE: RECYCLED PLAYSTATIONS BECOME BRITISH DESIGNER CHAIRS

London-based Pli Design Ltd (http://www.plidesign.co.uk) is launching its latest eco-friendly product, a chair made from 100% recycled games consoles. The launch takes place on Wednesday September 10, 2008 in London, at the HQ of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

The British manufactured 'Reee® chair' has a plastic seat and back made entirely from recycled PlayStation®2 computer games consoles*. Unlike most recycled plastics, which come from a variety of sources, the plastic in the Reee chair is entirely from a single source, making it the first of its kind in the country.

The Reee chair - which is available for the contract, education and domestic markets - was conceived at the annual Eden Project Suppliers conference in Cornwall, where the Pli team discussed the possibilities for reusing high-quality plastic from waste electronics products with other manufacturers, including Sony Computer Entertainment.

Each chair uses 2.4 kg of recycled plastic and the chair parts are designed to be disassembled at the end of their life and recycled again and again. The production of recycled plastic requires a fraction of the energy used for 'virgin' plastic that comes straight from...
