Sony Takes Legal Action Against Datel for PSP Lite Blue Tool

50°
301w ago - Just under [Register or Login to view links] Datel announced that the PSP-3000 was hacked via Service Mode using a device known as their Lite Blue Tool.

However, Sony Europe is now taking legal action against Datel for their much-hyped PSP 'Lite Blue Tool' Battery.

Datel notes that they "will inform customers about availability of this product when this situation has been resolved" so perhaps it will eventually hit the market.

Currently, the new 'alternative' is known as the Max Power Digital, which will put the PSP-2000 in Service Mode and serve only as a battery replacement for the PSP-3000.
 

Nintendo Takes More than 59% of Total Market Share for Week 7

50°
305w ago - Japan: The latest hardware data has been released and Nintendo has taken 59% total market share or better for the seventh week in a row.

DSi (173k) and DSL (31k) combine to sell two hundred thousand, and the Wii (91.6k) vaulted to almost one hundred thousand units.

Sony's three systems all had modest gains from the previous week, with the PSP hitting 71.k and the PS3 hitting 33.7k, and the not-yet-forgotten PS2 still selling more than 6k.

The 360 brings in the rear for this-gen hardware at 11.8k.
 

Sony Takes Micro-transactions to New World in PlayStation Home

50°
306w ago - Sony launched its Home virtual world for the PlayStation 3 today, opening up its beta test to all 16 million PS3 owners. We've tested Home in a closed beta so far, but now we will find out if it is ready for millions of people.

Jack Buser is the director of Home for the U.S. market. We talked with him by phone yesterday about Sony's plans for expanding the world and what's there now. [FYI: At the moment, I'm having trouble logging into Home; apparently, it's crowded]

VentureBeat: You took more than 18 months. That's a long time. What was the hard part?
Jack Buser: Something like Home has never been done before. It's a massive undertaking. When you deal as a platform like this, you're blazing new paths with technology and business. There was a lot of heavy lifting. Now we're rolling it out and it's something that can't be experienced anywhere else.

It's not a game. With a game, you create it, launch it and you're done. Home is a platform. A lot of the things will be created by third-party partners. You'll see a lot of people beyond Sony. We had to do all of those application programming interfaces so they could do that.

VB: Can you bring us up to date on who is ready with or preparing content for Home?
JB: Some things we...
 

Resistance 2 for PlayStation 3 Takes 420 Hours to Complete

100°
311w ago - And by complete, we mean complete complete. Sony says, and you may already have heard this figure tossed around, that there's some 420 hours worth of play time in Resistance 2 required to unlock everything.

Thankfully, for at least my own review purposes, the single player campaign should take you about 9 to 11 hours to burn through. That's totally reasonable.

But if you plan on dedicating the time to do everything, unlock every level, find every briefing, max out every class, you've got about 18 days of your life ahead of you just playing R2.

And if you do, you're a more dedicated man than me.
 

Disgruntled Ex-GameStop Employee Takes it to YouTube

300°
319w ago - Below is a video of YouTube rants from a former GameStop employee known only as 'WhistleBlowerZero', who has made a 9 part (!) series in the style of Zero Punctuation to explain exactly how bad GameStop is to employees and customers alike.

Many of the tidbits within will hardly be a surprise to anyone who's ever set foot in one of their stores and/or had the misfortune of working retail, but the series seems to be targeted more at the casual consumer and perhaps people who think working at GameStop sounds like a great job.

Viva la revoluciĆ³n?
