Japanese Adult HD Movie Distribution Hits the PlayStation 3

500°
281w ago - Perhaps Sony's PlayStation 3 just won the console war, for some anyway.

Kotaku (linked above) reports today that Japan's [Register or Login to view links] is bringing on-demand Blu-ray quality HD adult movies to the PS3.

Apparently the [Register or Login to view links] requires a broadband connection, an HDMI cable and a PS3 console... the only device the service works with presently.

To quote: "Before downloading the movies for a fee, users must log onto the DMM.tv Blu-ray Web site and can search for titles like by keywords, actress, genre, etc.

Discerning titles include the likes of Yuma Asami and the 100 M'baters. All hundred of them. On your PS3. In full HD. Yeah."
 

Video: PlayStation Eye Chat - Critter Crunch for PSN

50°
281w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a PlayStation Eye Chat video today on Critter Crunch for PSN.

To quote: When you last saw Critter Crunch, it was probably at E3 when Capybara's Nathan Vella walked us through the game's basics on the show floor.

Well Nathan is back, along with fellow Capy compadre Kris Piotrowski, to talk much more in-depth about Critter Crunch. Specifically, the duo describes the puzzle game's versus/co-op modes and their power-ups, how the foodchain mechanic works and the robust single-player adventure more. Plus, there's nice chunk of in-game footage included in the video.

And yes, there's plenty more barf, too. Strategic, rainbow-colored barf, if you will.




 

Rumor: PlayStation 3 80 GB Model to be Discontinued in Japan

250°
282w ago - I think this is another sign of new PS3 coming into town...

According to Kotaku (linked above), the Japanese stores have started to get a notice to discontinue selling the 80GB as of August 9th, which is about right before the new PS3 Slim is supposed to be announced.

To quote: The 20GB, 40GB and 60GB versions of the PS3 have been discontinued. According to this, it looks like the 80GB PlayStation 3 is next.

This [Register or Login to view links] is apparently from retailer 7-Eleven (7-Eleven sells video games in Japan) and stats that pre-orders for the Black, White and Silver 80GB PS3 will cease on Sunday, August 9 at 10am.

The reason listed is literally "For the manufacturer" – or at the maker's request.

The notice also notes that all in-store displays for the 80GB model are to be taken down. If this is true, then Japan would be left with only the 160GB PlayStation... Or perhaps there is an upgrade in store.
