245w ago - Today TheRegister.co.uk (linked above) reports that Sony Computer Entertainment's John Koller admitted he is amazed by PlayStation Home virtual goods sales and also hinted that reality TV is coming to PSN.

Speaking at iHollywood's Digital Living Room conference in Santa Clara on Tuesday, John Koller - director of marketing PlayStation platforms at SCE America - outlined the company's plans for family hearth domination with the PlayStation 3.

To quote: "Sony Computer Entertainment, the folks in charge of the PlayStation game console, are getting into the reality show business.

As it attempts to transition from a gaming company to a full-blown media company, SCE hopes to expand its PlayStation Network online platform into an "actual" TV network not unlike the American premium cable station HBO."

In regards to PlayStation Home, he stated, "It's amazing to me that someone would by a 50 cent chair for their PlayStation Home apartment with real money, but the revenue that comes from that is significant."

Video: Halo Legends is Hitting PS3 in 2010 on Blu-ray Disc

256w ago - The CNET article (linked above) entitled "A Halo Release That Will Be Playable on the PS3" is rapidly making Internet headlines today, however, it's a bit misleading.

If you consider watching a Halo movie as 'playing' it on the PS3, then yes it'll be possible next year.

For the rest of us, [Register or Login to view links] has announced that the movie will be coming out on Blu-ray disc, meaning that we'll simply be able to watch it on Sony's PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: "The announcement was made at the 2009 Comic-Con in San Diego. The series will be available for download via Xbox Live this fall. According to Blu-ray.com we can expect to see this on Blu-ray sometime in 2010, so there will finally be a disc labeled Halo that will play on the PS3 for all the Halo fans.

However, since the Xbox 360 doesn't support Blu-ray, it makes you wonder if Blu-ray is in the 360's future? Or maybe the next-gen Xbox?"

Those interested can check out the Halo Legends - The Babysitter preview from Spike TV below.

257w ago - Following Kaz Hirai's keynote address at Tokyo Game Show 2009, Sony revealed that the PSP will be getting a version of PlayStation Home dubbed PlayStation Room.

This newer portable version will let you have blogs, photo albums, and some social networking features like chat, mini-games, and real-time communication.

The upcoming PSPGo will also have 700 launch games when it arrives on October 1st in North America, to quote from Examiner.com (linked above):

"The PSPGo will have a very large library of games available for purchase. Offering 700 downloadable titles when it hits America, the PSPGo will launch with the biggest library of games any system has ever had - meanwhile, Japan will have 400 games available."

Finally, according to [Register or Login to view links] the PSPGo will be getting a converter (pictured below) since it's not compatible with current PSP accessories such as the PSP camera.

Rumor: Castle Crashers Hitting PlayStation 3 via PSN in 2010?

200°
261w ago - It appears The Behemoth's 2D action game Castle Crashers is no longer exclusive to Xbox 360.

According to CastleCrashers.com (linked above), the highly popular Xbox Live Arcade game will be hitting the PlayStation 3 via PSN in 2010.

This news comes despite earlier [Register or Login to view links] of it arriving on 8/27/2009 (which is obviously false), so now the title will not be conquering the PlayStation Store this year.

For those unaware: Castle Crashers is a side-scrolling, beat-em-up which incorporates a small number of role-playing game elements.

After selecting a character, the player then selects a starting level (beginning with the wizard's attack on the castle) through a graph-like world map; once the player completes a level, they may then opt to start or revisit that level any time.

Other levels include shops where the player can buy items for healing, attacking, or defense using coins gained from defeated foes, and arena levels where the player can take on challenges to unlock additional characters, although in co-op the arena turns into a player vs player match.
