175w ago - Xbox Product Management Senior Director David Hufford believes that Natal will give new life to the Xbox 360, and that there is no need to launch a new console.
To quote from a recent interview with Guardian.co.uk: "I think it's important to say that the Xbox 360 is the console of the long future for us.
There is no need to launch a new console, because we're able to give this console new life either with software upgrades or hardware upgrades like Project Natal," said David Hufford, senior director of Xbox product management in a briefing at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. "The Xbox 360 was designed for a long life, and I don't even know if we're at the midpoint yet."
This would mean that the Xbox 360 can survive a 10 year life span? Feel free to comment below!

To quote: "Whilst we've only really seen a whole range of Sackboy figurines on retailers such as Play.com, we've picked up an advertisement displaying an upcoming LittleBigPlanet branded PSP Case and includes a set of stickers for you to customise it.
The advert, from Accessories4Gamers Ltd., details that it is suitable for 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000 and PSP Go models too... wait... 4000?! Uh oh, seems like someone has maybe confirmed recent rumours too soon!"
182w ago - According to both analysts and PSXExtreme.com (linked above), a new PSP console dubbed the PSP2 will arrive in 2010 to compliment Sony's PSPGo and feature PowerVR SGX543 graphics.
Apparently it has been in development since 2008, alongside several other PSP models, and will phase out the PSP-3000 console.
To quote: "According to BSN, the new generation of portable technology from Sony will indeed arrive next year and feature PowerVR SGX543 graphics.
We learn that past rumors were also mostly true, as their sources tell us the PSP2 has been in development since 2008 and exactly one year ago today, Sony unofficially announced the selection of Imagination Technologies' SGX graphics processor.
Earlier today, we heard something similar in regards to the potential tech leaks for the PS4 and new PSP, which is starting to become clearer and more legitimate.
It also seems obvious that Sony will push forward with the freshly released PSP Go and replace...

According to greavsie of the official European PlayStation Forums when you register on the official DivX site MoviePromo.Divx.com you are entitled to a free movie download that you can transfer to the PlayStation 3.
