E3 2009: PSP Go Leads a Huge Wave of PSN Content

100°
290w ago - Today Sony's Peter Dille, Senior Vice President of Marketing & PlayStation Network, has announced the PSP Go alongside a huge wave of PSN content.

To quote: We've been saying that 2009 will be a breakout year for the PSP because of the killer software lineup that no other handheld can match. Well, the PSP story is even stronger now with the unveiling of the PSP go, the newest addition to the PlayStation Portable family that is sure to be the "must-have" device for consumers seeking the deepest gaming and entertainment experience on-the-go.

PSP go is sleek, pocket-sized, and 100 percent digital. This is the PSP designed for those of you who are completely comfortable downloading and storing digital media, and it's ideal for anyone who considers themselves an early adopter of the latest and greatest technology.





After talking extensively with consumers and our publishing partners, we know that now is the time to introduce PSP go. It will live alongside the current PSP-3000, and I should note that for those who prefer disc-based content, we remain committed to the UMD format, which will continue to be available at retail.

Here's a quick look at the key specs:

• The most portable PSP ever, PSP go is more...
 

Resident Evil: Director's Cut PSOne Available Tomorrow on PSN

200°
291w ago - Capcom's Project Manager Matt Dahlgren announced today that Resident Evil: Director's Cut (PSOne) will be hitting PSN tomorrow:

Today I get to blog about the PSone Resident Evil: Director's Cut, which will be available for download tomorrow on PSN for $9.99.

I don't think I'll ever get to make a statement like this in a blog ever again.

The original Resident Evil is a game that defined my personality as a gamer for years to come. (I've got two others on my list of influential games, FF7 and Tekken, each for their respective genre - but I'll keep this RE centered.)

The early experiences that you have in gaming set you up for what to expect in the future. If you have a positive enough experience, you attempt to find it time and time again - but I don't think a game will ever affect me in the same way that this one did.

Going back and tinkering around with this game after so many years off got me thinking about how different gaming was 10 years ago in comparison to today. Games back then were hard. I remember dying at the first zombie while trying to figure out a weird control scheme, yet being mesmerized with the fact that I could control the outcome in a 3D environment.

It took me a while to get the grasp of everything, and I died...
 

Monster Hunter Demo for PSP Live on PSN Today!

100°
292w ago - Capcom's Shawn Baxter has announced that today the Monster Hunter Demo for PSP is now live on Sony's PlayStation Network.

To quote: the official demo will be live today (once the PlayStation Store is updated - keep an eye on the PlayStation.Blog) and loaded with brand new monsters. There's three quests to choose from: Hypnocatrice, Plum Hermitaur, and an Epic Hunting Quest with three monsters to slay.

Aside from new monsters, there's also pre-made characters for each weapon type to choose from. Great Sword, Long Sword, Sword, Dual Blades, Hammer, Hunting Horn, Lance, Gun Lance, Light Bowgun, Heavy Bowgun, and Bow... They're all there. We've crammed as much into the demo as we could. You'll be hunting in the forest, the desert, and in the swamp.

Monster Hunter just wouldn't be the same without co-op, so the demo is fully capable of four player ad-hoc co-op! The demo isn't going to just leave you to fend for yourself if you aren't playing ad-hoc. If you play single player, you'll have your choice to bring one of three Felyne Fighters with you. There's Kota a Melee Fighter, and then there's Ginger a Bomber, and finally Melody a Support type.

Now that you have a chance to finally hop into MHFU, we have a brand new set of videos coming to teach you some...
 

Rumor: PSN Subscription Fee Possible for PS3 Users?

550°
292w ago - Rumor has it that Sony may be considering a PSN subscription fee.

Not a subscription fee for access and online (ala Xbox Live) but a fee that gives you all you can eat access to PSN games be they for PSP or PS3.

To quote: This isn't a new idea (Sony Asia polled its customers in early 2008 about such a thing- pics below) but scuttlebutt is that they are asking AGAIN. Hmmm.

$10 dollars per month for 5 or 6 games out of the complete library? Games must 'check in' to see if you are a current subscriber or they just don't play. Maybe bump it to $20 and you get movie streaming to boot?

What do you think? Would you be willing to pay a fee to get access to all PSN games (esp considering if PSP Go! is real all future PSP games will be ON PSN).
