Sony Ponders PSP-Direct Online Store

356w ago - According to the source above, Sony has commented that it is definitely thinking about a future direct PSP Playstation store which will cut the middle men out of the equation (ie the PC and PlayStation 3 console).

To quote: When asked if the storefront would eventually be accessible via PSP, SCEA director of PSN operations Eric Lempel told MTV Multiplayer, "Clearly that's something we're thinking about. With the capability of the PSP it's something that should be possible.

It's just a matter of priorities and some technology that we need to make it all work right and make sure the content is delivered securely, just to protect some of our [intellectual properties]. Yeah, it's definitely something we're thinking about."
 

Sony: PS3 In-Game XMB Being Worked On

50°
356w ago - When the 2.0 firmware update for PS3 was finally released, many users were disappointed over the fact that the update did not include in-game XMB access as originally expected.

The good news is that we still may see in-game XMB packed in a future firmware update according to Sony marketing VP Peter Dille, to quote from the link above:

As far as in-game XMB access, we know it's a feature that's important to our consumers. Because PS3 packs so much advanced technology "under the hood," it takes some time to implement major, new functionalities, but we are working hard on addressing this feature, as well as continually expand the capabilities and functionalities of PS3.

We expect firmware updates to continue in 2008 and throughout the product's lifecycle as new technologies and enhancements become available.
