Video: PS3 Slim Standing Test, PlayStation 3 Slim Stand Hits

550°
279w ago - Pictured below is the PlayStation 3 Slim's new stand, which costs a whopping $24 if you plan to get one when it's available.

It works by laying flat on whatever surface you deem fit, and then it holds your new gaming console upright.

The folks over at Kotaku (linked above) have done a simple PS3 Slim standing test, to see if the fancy accessory is a necessity or not.

To quote stephentotilo, who shared the video on YouTube:

"Can the PlayStation 3 Slim stand without its fancy stand? Being a vertical-system guy, I had to test this."

Check out the video below for the result...




 

PlayStation Home v1.3 Coming This September to the PS3

100°
279w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced today that PlayStation Home v1.3 is coming this September to the PS3 console.

To quote: As announced at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, PlayStation Home's core client will be getting a serious upgrade this fall. And when we say serious, dear readers, we're talking excessive and impressive in quality, extent, and degree. This is the for real deal upgrade!

I got three words to start us off: Universal. Game. Launching. That's right - you can now launch into any PlayStation 3 game directly from Home. Titles that fully support game launching (like Street Fighter IV, Resistance 2, MotorStorm, and Far Cry 2) will be identified by separate icons that appear over an avatar's head and will have varying degrees of additional multiplayer functionality built in.

Simplified game launching will take you from Home to the start menu of your favorite games with ease. Never again will you have to sign out of Home to play with (or against) your friends. Simply insert the disc of your choice while in Home and follow the on screen directions and you'll be good to go.

Shop-a-holics will be stoked to see that an in-store item previewing option will be rolled out. This feature will allow you to preview items of clothing...
