SCE: PSP Go's CPU Still 333MHz, 480MHz References USB Only

200°
291w ago - Despite a previous report over the weekend (based on a misinterpreted FCC document), today Engadget's [Register or Login to view links] Web site has confirmed via SCE that PSP Go's CPU is still 333MHz, and that the 480MHz spec pertains to the USB only.

To quote: Our friends at Engadget Japan have gotten in contact with Sony Computer Entertainment and been informed that the Maximum clock frequency mentioned here is for the USB device, not the CPU.

Translated roughly from their Japanese site: Recently published "PSP go up the clock" for correction. FCC Documents submitted to the FCC "Max Clock: 480MHz" and the description, it has been up to 333MHz (CPU) 480MHz clock may be used in a compatible and can not think if you get on the conventional model.

SCE on 480MHz said: "The whole unit," the clock shows the maximum, in this case is that the clock of the USB device. Main processor for the PSP 1000 / 2000 / 3000 and 1 ~ 333MHz remain unchanged.

Thus, there is no inventory risk and begin to appear PSP go for high clock-only apps, you do media browser etc I might have been quick to predict the collapse of the ground. We apologize...

298w ago - Producer Ben Judd has announced today that Bionic Commando: Rearmed has been reduced to only $4.99 on PSN.

To quote: As some of you may already know, [Register or Login to view links] will be released on May 19th for the PLAYSTATION 3. It's one of the few big releases in May to feature a 20-plus-hour-long single-player campaign and several multiplayer modes. Oh yeah, it also has a really damn cool swing mechanic.

Speaking of the swing mechanic, it's taken a VERY long time to make it into exactly what we wanted it to be. The game, for very obvious visual reasons, gets compared to Spider-man a lot. They both have a swing mechanic, but Bionic Commando plays very differently from Spider-man in that it uses a skill-based mechanic. Just as the name suggests, if you want to get better at the game, you need to increase your skill level.

There are a lot of games these that put you on auto-pilot straight to the end with very few deaths or real skill-based challenges. The thinking behind this strategy is that players nowadays don't want to be frustrated and want to have their fun right away. Well, that's good in theory, but some of the best and most memorable games I've played challenged you to overcome the obstacles set before you.

There is a certain...
