Sony Ericsson's Satio & Aino Get Remote Play PS3 Feature

350°
291w ago - The upcoming Sony Ericsson model Aino, previously named Idou, and the Satio are said to include support for Sony Remote Play (not Open Remote Play) for playback of media stored on the PS3 console.

It also introduces Media Home, which automatically pulls media from Media Go on your pc over wifi when it is placed in its stand and will be available in three different colors.

To quote: Folks are already starting to get a look at production versions of the Sony Ericsson Satio and its baby sister, the Aino.

The Satio looks identical to its Idou doppelganger -albeit now in three colors instead of two- but the real news here is inside, where we're finally getting a look at Sony Ericsson's interpretation of Symbian^1 with a unique UI.

Overall, it's looking "chunky" (and we mean that in a good way) with an entirely finger-friendly presentation- a sharp, healthy departure from the UIQ platform that it just threw in the dumpster a few months back.

Though the Satio's higher end, it's actually the Aino that intrigues us more; in a way, this is the closest thing to a PSP phone...
 

PLAY Magazine's PSP2 Forecasted Feature List Available

200°
297w ago - The UK's PLAY Magazine published an article in their latest issue entitled: The PSP2's Features (probably) as follows:

Flash Memory - 16GB flash memory would be the most sensible option for Sony to plump for, which would allow for a reasonable amount of games to be stored on the internal memory. Most games weigh in at well under half a gig of memory, so that would be a reasonable size to start with.

No UMD Drive - David Perry's main concern, as with many developers is to do with the UMD format. The loss of the, frankly useless, UMD format would work for everyone except retailers. No UMD would solve so many of the problems with the original console, including battery life, size & loading times.

Sliding Screen - Expanding the screen would have it's drawbacks for existing titles, but putting in a sliding, touck screen format would allow room for the consoles visual capabilities to really be seen. While you may think this is dangerous & flimsy, the technology is there and cheap enough.

Reworked Controls - One of the most contentious issues for PSP users is the controller layout, and the fact that a second analogue stick has never been included. Until now, that is. Changing the screen to a sliding format means that there's more space to reposition the controls,...

MLB 09 The Show: New Roster Vault Feature for PS3 Unveiled

50°
305w ago - Producer Jason Villa discusses a new feature to look out for in MLB 09 The Show for PS3, namely the Roster Vault as follows:

Following in the footsteps of the My Slider feature, we've put more control in the user's hands. Community shared content leverages the creativity of user's like you.

And if you're one of the users that love to customize rosters and share with others, you know how difficult it's been in the past to relay your settings to other users. The Roster Vault in MLB 09 The Show solves that problem. The Roster Vault allows you to make all your roster changes (some new to this year), save them off, and upload them for others to download and use.

Here's how to upload a Roster to the Roster Vault:

1. Take any roster (on disc or a weekly Live Roster update)

2. Make any changes you'd like to the roster and players within. This could be player names, attributes, jersey numbers, accessories, handedness, etc...

3. Save the Roster to your hard drive

4. Connect online with MLB 09, via SportsConnect, select the Roster Vault feature from the Community section.

5. Select Upload from the Roster Vault options

6. Select one of the Rosters from your hard drive to upload

7. Name...
