David Reeves Talks Exclusivity, Unannounced Games and PSP

50°
287w ago - Eurogamer (linked above) recently sat down with David Reeves, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, to discuss his views on the PS3, PSP and where they both stand.

With regards to exclusive games, Reeves toed the company line, stating that "you can't live on exclusivity forever; in the end, you've got to be master of your own destiny."

To quote: By investing in third-party partnerships -- and first-party acquisitions like Guerrilla Games -- Sony removes the need to rely on publishers for exclusive content. "We don't have to go to Capcom or Take-Two and ask for an exclusive. And I don't think we could afford it anyway. In the cold light of day, I would do exactly as those publishers have done and go multi-platform."

When asked about any unannounced PS3 titles for later in the year, he indicated that "there are a couple." Look for those to be announced soon, possibly in "the next four to six weeks."

Reeves goes on to discuss the PSP, saying that the system's need for "better and more original games" has not yet been met, but that "the line-up for PSP in 2009 is two or three times stronger than it was last year."

It sounds promising, especially considering the number of great Japanese games that are in development for the system. Hopefully we'll...
 

PSP Clone Plays NES Games on TV via PlayStation Controller Clone

200°
297w ago - A PSP clone known as the 2PG console comes with cartridges that allows you to play retro NES games. Moreover, the system has an A/V out and is supplied with a PlayStation clone controller in order to play the games on TV.

To quote: Sure, this portable gaming system might LOOK just a little bit like the Sony PSP, but don't expect it to play any games made in the last 15 years.

Another in a long line of cheap Chinese knock-off systems, the 2PG TC8281 handheld plays a mish-mash of questionable 8-bit and 16-bit retro games that come only on special multi-game cartridges.

The 2PG console comes with five built-in games, as well as an additional "112 in 1″ game cartridge, for a total of 117 games for under $50. Hundreds of additional games can be played if you know where to look for the proper cartridges. The system also has an AV out and comes with a cheezy-looking Playstation clone controller so you can play games on your TV.

If you're willing to take a gamble on one of these somewhat suspect systems, you can get your hands on one over at DealExtreme for $48.80 USD.
 

PSP-3000 Screen has Scanlines, Games have Interlacing Issues

50°
302w ago - On the official PS boards (linked above), jasoncps has reported that he noticed something wrong right away with his new silver PSP 3000.

Pictured below (left) are what he states the picture should look like, as well as what it looks like on the PSP 3000 (right).

To quote: I traded in my perfect 2000 series with a silky smooth screen and great color for this? Yes the 2000's screen ghosted a little but it looked much better than this "new" screen with scanlines and with interlacing problems!!!

See the difference?? THE PROBLEM IS THE INTERLACING AND THE SCREEN ARE OFF SYNC. The effect really only comes into view with fast moving objects on screen. That's why some say they don't see it, because they DONT KNOW WHAT TO LOOK AT.

R&C Size Matters can show what I am talking about by simple moving Ratchet left and right on the screen. When you do that, look at the tool in his hand when he runs. See the lines going through it? Those are not supposed to be there. Play any game with fast moving objects and you will see the above illustrated effect.

THIS NEEDS TO BE BROUGHT TO SONY'S ATTENTION AS IT IS IN EVERY GAME AND EVERY VIDEO WITH FAST MOVING OBJECTS, ESPECIALLY DARK COLORED OBJECTS ON LIGHT COLORED BACKGROUNDS.

Stop confusing the issue people! The problem...

Upcoming FuSa SD for PSP-2000 will support PS1 (POPS) games!

50°
319w ago - FuSa team, the guys behind the software to run games on PSP-2000s on any cable and any TV have posted this:

"As you know, OldPrisoneR is on his vacation at present time, however he continues work on FuSa SD. I've just received message from him... he is unstoppable!

He managed to add PS1 (POPS) games support for FuSa SD! OldPrisoneR has also said that at this moment he is working on new SpeeD BoosteR, which must avoid any slowdown.

You, probably, have one question now: "When will be update?"

I can say just one thing: There will be no update untill John (OldPrisoneR) returns (he will return after fortnight. So, probably, update will be in July)."

This is great news coming from the amazing team FuSa, having POPS support and speed improvements. So let's be patient, it's worth the wait no doubt.
