Sony CEO Thanks PS3 Fans for a Great 2009, NPD Sales Up 36%

200°
245w ago - Sony's President & CEO Jack Tretton has thanked PS3 fans today for a great 2009, and stated that today's NPD numbers show a 36% sales increase on PS3 hardware when compared to last January.

To quote: 2009 was a great success for the PlayStation brand in a market that continues to be impacted by a down economy. I wanted to thank you for making this past year the best yet for the PS3.

According to [Register or Login to view links]'s recent [Register or Login to view links], PlayStation was the only company to see consumers in three territories ([Register or Login to view links], US and [Register or Login to view links]) spending 15% more on PS3 software in 2009 than they did in 2008 - this is while the category as a whole experienced a 9% decline in software sales.

The PS3 was also the only console in the U.S. to see double-digit growth in sales this past quarter. December also marked the best sales month in the platform's history, breaking one million hardware units and 7.3 million software units.

We're nowhere near slowing down in the new year as today's NPD numbers show a 36% sales increase on PS3 hardware when compared to last January. This is...

246w ago - Update: Flyer has found a savedata crash exploit (pictured below) that may also work with PSP Firmware v6.20.

A few months after the Mercury PSP Exploit was released comes the next discovery, specifically pspjoke of LAN.st (linked above) has found a new PSP exploit that should work on PSP Firmware 6.20 and the PSPgo!

While it isn't released yet, SilverSpring is examining it and if possible stated he would make an exploit from the game save crash... which may even be useful for eLoader fans.

To quote: "If this looks exploitable I would like to speak to one of the pros via pm to further the development of the exploit and to learn more about exploits in general.

The overrun string was just a ton of A's or 0x61.. as you see I managed to overwrite ra so I think I'm on to something.. changed to 0xEE and it is for sure."

More details to follow as they are available.

247w ago - Today VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey has announced that both Sony and VidZone wish to extend greetings of a Happy Australia Day to PS3 fans.

To quote: Australia has a day? Who would have thought? Nah, I'm joking... I knew that. Well we couldn't let this one slip by without contributing something to the party.

Now what do you think we could give to the Australian people to help them celebrate? Alcohol? Nope, BBQ food? fraid not. Party hats? don't be stupid!... Not got it yet... A PLAYLIST OF COURSE!!!

We have videos from everyone that is anyone in the Australian music scene. From Pendulum to Powderfinger, Hilltop Hoods to Hunters and Collectors.

This one is only available to Australian VidZone users (for obvious reasons) and will be available on Monday 25th of January which I know is a day early, but it gives you a day to check out the videos before the main event.

Hope you all have a "Bonza" day (sorry I had to put one in...) Let me know how it went!
 

Naughty Dog Wishes PS3 Fans a Very Happy New Year 2010

350°
251w ago - This weekend Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has sent Happy New Year 2010 wishes to PS3 fans.

To quote: All of us at Naughty Dog wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!

2009 has been both incredibly busy AND amazing year for us on all counts. We started the year off working hard on UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and we had no idea what was going to be in store for us and for our fans as the year progressed.

We had our heads down for most of the year making sure we put together an awesome game that we think you would like, but when E3 came around, we took a moment to stop and realize that things were really coming together as UNCHARTED 2 picked up over 20 awards when all was said and done.

It's safe to say we were stoked to get this recognition and it made us kick things up a notch over the next several months as we were putting the finishing touches on our game. When we released UNCHARTED 2 in October to critical acclaim, we were looking forward to hearing what all of our fans thought on [Register or Login to view links], the PlayStation forums, Twitter and anywhere else on the Internet you discussed our game.

Now, we're wrapping up the year watching our game win Game of the Year...
