Sony PSP and PS Vita Sale Starts Today on PlayStation Network

36w ago - Sony PS Store and Plus Content Manager Chris Howe announced that the next PSP and PS Vita sale starts today on PlayStation Network.

To quote: It's been quite a ride so far as we have worked our way through the consoles that have made the PlayStation brand a global phenomenon.

But our story would not be complete without taking a look at our handheld platforms. The PSP revolutionized portable gaming with amazing screen, robust multimedia capabilities and connectivity with our other Sony platforms. But what we all really love are games, and the PSP produced some real classics.

Our very own God of War: Chains of Olympus tops it for me but how can we forget Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, WipEout Pure and Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions.What a great library.

That brings us to our latest console, the PS Vita. Now in terms of lifespan, PS Vita is just a youngster, so what we want to know from you is what your best moments with it have been so far? This magical piece of kit is here to stay and it's only going to get better with the PS4!

Personally I love playing FIFA 13 on its crystal clear screen; it passes the time brilliantly on my journey to and from PlayStation HQ every day. I am also eagerly awaiting the release...

38w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team is here with details on this weeks PS3 sale which includes some more favorite PlayStationMemories below.

To quote: I hope everyone has been enjoying our #PlayStationMemories promotion over the last few weeks.

Moving on from the joyous PS2 era, we now come to the current generation console - PlayStation 3. PS3 moved into a new world of high-definition gaming and online connectivity, where games looked like cut crystal and playing online with your friends became a norm for many.

PlayStation 3 has hosted countless popular franchise updates, such as new installments of Grand Theft Auto, Tekken and Metal Gear Solid to name a few, as well as brand new IP such as the Uncharted and Assassin's Creed series.

We also saw great new games thanks to the evolution of the digital space, such as the much lauded Journey, The Unfinished Swan, Braid and Limbo. And the system's future still looks bright, with the likes of Gran Turismo 6, Grand Theft Auto V, Beyond: Two Souls and Puppeteer still to come.

I remember getting my PS3 quite clearly, despite my original pre-order agonisingly falling through. I purchased Devil May Cry 4 before actually having the system, but Uncharted and Ninja Gaiden Sigma were thrown into the bundle...
 

Sony PS4 Dev Kit FCC Filing: Extra Ports, 2.75GHz Max Clock Speed

39w ago - Sony's PS4 development kit FCC filing shows off extra ports alongside a 2.75GHz max clock speed with details below.

To quote from Engadget (linked above): "Sony proudly showed off its PlayStation 4 hardware for the first time at E3, and now we're getting a peek at what developers are working with this generation thanks to the FCC.

The DUH-D1000AA prototype Development Kit for PS4 is listed in these documents, tested for its Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi radios. As one would expect, the diagrams show it eschews the sleek design of the consumer model for extra cooling, a shape made for rack mounts plus extra indicator lights and ports.

Also of note is a "max clock speed" listing of 2.75GHz, and although we don't know how fast the game system will run by default, it's interesting to hear what that 8-core AMD Jaguar silicon may be capable of while maintaining a temperature between 5 and 35 degrees celsius.

Hit the link above to check out the documents for yourself, after seeing this and the system's controller become a part of the FCC's database all we're left waiting for is Mark...

40w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team announced today that their PS2 Sale starts today on PlayStation Network.

To quote: Hi everyone! Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone that has shared a favourite memory from the PSone era over the last two weeks. It's great to hear after all this time that there is still such a passion for such a groundbreaking piece of hardware!

Onwards and upward though! Next, PlayStation 2. Released way back in late 2000, PlayStation 2 was the home of some of the best games ever, with all-time greats such as, Kingdom Hearts, God of War, ICO, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy X, Tekken 5, Grand Theft Auto III and many, many more.

With over 150 million units sold (and counting), PS2 is to this day still regarded as one of the finest gaming machines ever created.

PlayStation 2 was the first home console I could claim as my own. My parents were quite anti-gaming and were convinced it'd melt my brain, so I'd only really play games when I snuck to the arcades with my brothers.

However, after a lot of begging (and saving my lunch money), I was finally able to get one for my birthday. My first game was Tekken Tag Tournament. Sadly I didn't have a memory card for a while, so I'd barely experience...
