Sony Faces Heat from Game Publishers to Cut PlayStation 3 Price

250°
280w ago - Sony Corp. is under pressure from video game publishers to cut the price of the PlayStation 3 console, or risk seeing more development funds shift to Nintendo Co.'s Wii.

To quote: PS3 sales in the next 12 months are likely to total 14 million, compared with 28 million Wiis and 9.7 million Xbox 360s, according to the Daiwa Institute of Research, a Tokyo-based researcher and consultant.

Price cuts have an immediate impact.

Sony reduced the PS3 price from $499.99 in October 2007 and sales more than doubled in the next month. In September, Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft released its lowest-priced Xbox 360, at $199.99. The company almost doubled Sony's U.S. shipments from October to January after trailing PS3 in the prior three months, NPD data show.

"Anytime a console manufacturer reduces the price, software publishers benefit," Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer of Ubisoft Entertainment SA, Europe's largest video-game maker, said in an e-mail.

Game makers now focus development in two directions: one for the top-selling Wii and the other for Xbox 360, PS3 and personal computers.

Titles for Microsoft and Sony are typically...
 

Greatest PlayStation, Saturn And Nintendo 64 Graphics of All Time

350°
280w ago - Like a fine wine, game consoles mature with age. The first wave of releases, that initially looked so visually impressive, are soon eclipsed by ever-more-sophisticated looking games, as developers gain a greater understanding of the hardware.

That doesn't mean, however, that it's the last games released for a system that are most memorable. In fact, it can often be the games in that first wave that have the greatest impact, as they hold the promise of a new era.

This feature is focused exclusively on graphics. We're going to take a stroll through every console designed for 3D graphics and hand out four awards to games that pushed the envelope. They are:

Most Memorable Graphical Jump: This is the game with visuals so good it changed the way you viewed the console. Suddenly, the true power of the system was revealed, and previous expectations were left in the dust.

Technical Excellence: This is the game that best capitalised on the hardware from a visual standpoint. This is a developer who knows the system inside out eking every last ounce of performance and eye candy.

Serving A Creative Vision: This game used visuals to serve a highly creative end or in conjunction with an expansive concept.

Worst Visuals: This is the game...
 

Sony: We Won't Drop Blu-ray for the PlayStation 3 Console

350°
280w ago - In February, analyst Mike Hickey indicated a PlayStation 3 price drop would hit near the end of the month. Didn't happen. He also passed on speculation that Sony would drop the PS3's Blu-ray drive.

Wait. What? Drop the thing that makes the entirety of the PlayStation 3's physical game library playable? That's what he said. See?

"We are also hearing continued speculation that Sony is working on a non-Blu-ray PS3 console, which could enable them to make the aforementioned hardware price reduction," Hickey wrote in a note to investors last month.

Sony says there's no way that's going to happen.

"That would pretty much destroy the PS3's backbone, our games were built on Blu-ray," Sony marketing manager Kim Nguyen tells Business Insider. "Quote that: Blu-ray will always be part of PS3."

Glad we got that sorted out. Also, duh!
 

Is 2009 Really the Year of Sony's PlayStation 3 Console?

250°
280w ago - If you ask just about any ill-informed PlayStation fanboy on any forum what Sony has in store for them in 2009, they will almost certainly reply to you with a list of games that looks a little like this:

• God of War III
• Heavy Rain
• Uncharted 2
• MAG
• inFamous
• Killzone 2
• Gran Turismo 5
• Quantum Theory

Then they would go about spouting first-party studios they have not heard from in a while, claiming "Team ICO's unannounced project".

How many of these games do you expect to see the light of day in 2009? Let's take a look back over the years so far. In the past we have seen top-notch first-party exclusives such as LittleBigPlanet and Killzone 2 being delayed over and over again and third party games such as Metal Gear Solid 4 receiving similar delays, it is clear that it isn't just Sony dropping the ball.

It is highly possible that many of these developers over-estimated their skills at programming, making a game from the ground up seemed on a system deemed by developers as 'difficult to program for'.

First, let's get these unannounced games out the way, if they are unannounced, the chances of them releasing any time within the next year are unlikely. It is still within possibility...
