PlayStation 3 to get More 3rd Party Support in 2009

100°
307w ago - A few months ago, the gaming community had its mind set that this generation is the end of 3rd party exclusives, and there will be a big push towards multiplatform.

Over the past year, there were a lot of multiplatform games released from the older Oblivion to the more contemporary Call of Duty, and to the more recent Bioshock.

There seems to be an agreement amongst gamers that the Xbox 360 always had the better version of the game because it's easier to program for, and of course sometimes that is true, but I also picked the above 3 examples to illustrate the point that sometimes the sheep mentality can be quite deceiving.

The PlayStation 3 version is not "always" the worst one, and sometimes it may even be the preferred version due to the free cost of PSN or the addition of Trophy system (if you prefer it over the Achievement system on your Xbox 360).

Or even better graphics (Oblivion), or extra contents (Bioshock/Eternal Sonata). Of course, some of these games are late to the table and I will not argue with you that if you had both machines you would have probably already played Bioshock. But setting these matters aside there is something else worth discussing today.

There is another misconception that the XBox 360 was getting all the 3rd party love, with...

Future Firmware Updates to Allow PS3's CPU Power Use on PSP?

100°
307w ago - It has been revealed that future Firmware updates may enable the PlayStation Portable to cope with more processing while using computational resources on the PS3 for areas where the PSP lacks resources.

So we could have some seriously strong interaction between the two systems - processor sharing, here we come baby!

To quote: SCE (Matsui) on future firmware updates:

In future updates, there are thoughts of raising the level of interaction, in the sense of "interactive entertainment".

Among those ideas are enabling the PSP to cope with more processing while using computational resources on the PS3 side for areas where the PSP lacks resources, so we think that interaction between the two systems will be possible by having them successfully complement each other.

In addition, as with Life with PlayStation, we take the approach of making the PS3 something people will use from when they wake up, like switching it on to watch the news in the morning.

Since we believe that there must still be many areas in with both the PS3 and PSP can be of use in people's daily lives, we want to continue to make firmware updates with this perspective in mind.
