Sony's PlayStation 3 Video Store Sounds Ready To Go

200°
320w ago - The current PlayStation Store is a bit of a clunker. It's functionally sound, but a bit rough around the edges from a usability standpoint. Compared to the rest of the PlayStation 3's visual design, it's certainly lacking–but that's reportedly going to change come Springtime, as the Store is said to get a new coat of paint.

One aspect of the Store that's been hinted about by reliable publications, like the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal, is Sony's download service, one that president Howard Stringer may be talking about when he refers to the "expansion" of the PlayStation Network.

It may be Sony's best bet in fending off Apple's iTunes for movie and television distribution. And it may be closer than we thought.

Sure, it's been a long time coming, with first reports of the digital download venture hitting in December of 2006, but Sony's been awfully quiet about when it's coming.

According to sources who attended the retailer and publisher focused Destination PlayStation conference last week in Scottsdale, Arizona, Sony showed off a portion of its video store. It reportedly uses the same SingStore-like interface we talked about in our PlayStation Store revamp post, something we hoped to capture in the mock-up of the video store above.

No specifics on launch...
 

Maguire: In-game Communication Coming To PS3 This Summer

250°
320w ago - According to Ray Maguire, the head of Sony Computer Entertainment's UK operation, a feature labeled as in-game communication is due out this summer for the PlayStation 3, along with Firmware Update 2.4.

To quote: Our momentum will continue with the introduction of in-game communication in the summer, Firmware Update 2.4 and the strongest line-up of games through our third party partners and our own studios. I'd personally like to thank our trade and business partners for helping us on the start of the PS3 journey.

No further details were provided. However, we presume that this means PS3 owners will soon be able to chat with people on their PSN friends list while playing a game. A feature many of us have been waiting for.
 

PlayStation Home Virtual PSP Screens available!

50°
320w ago - Some screens of the Virtual PSP that is used by your character to control Home have been revealed.

To quote: Today, dear readers, we present the fourth batch of Home screens - exclusive ones at that.

Feast your eyes on the virtual PSP. Nice Wallpapers, huh? Hope they release some of them for download on the PSN - the orange controller one is super-sweet.

For those of you that don't know, you control Home by using a virtual PSP that you character keeps in their pocket.... Watch PSP sales rocket when Home comes out - only for someone to sue Sony because they can't teleport to a friends house with it, or use it to change their sofa.

Straight from the South Central Seas, Scurv Dogg, the latest addition to the PAIN posse, can spice up your game with some scurvy flair and the horrible manners of a seasoned seadog.
