PlayStation Home to Continue on Future Sony Platforms

100°
300w ago - Sony has suggested that it's recently released PlayStation Home will be present on future platforms, although right now the team is just focused on making the service as good as possible.

To quote: In an interview with CVG, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) Home service manager Dan Hill answers that question, stating that Home's potential is almost limitless and Sony sees it having a very long life.

"Home is a brand-new service and no-one else is doing anything of this scale or ambition," said Hill. "Its potential is almost limitless in terms of where it could go. We see it as having a very long and fruitful life."

As for immediate cross-platform plans and making the service available on the PSP, Hill left that prospect open to speculation, though hinted it is something the company is looking into.

"We're looking at possible future directions for the service, but at the moment we're focusing on making Home as good as it can be, and getting content, activities and spaces into the service that are genuinely going to add something to the PlayStation experience, and make it a very special place for our community."
 

PS2 Backwards Compatibility Comes to PlayStation 3 via SingStar

500°
300w ago - The fact that a lot of PS3 owners own PS3s that can't play PS2 games sucks. Stupid move on Sony's part. But if the only PS2 game you wanted to play was Singstar, read on!

First mentioned earlier this year, Sony Europe have announced that the title update allowing SingStar PS3 users to "hot swap" their PS2 SingStar discs is ready for download.

In other words, even if you own a PS3 that doesn't support backwards-compatibility, you'll be able to use your PS2 SingStars on your PS3 provided you boot up the PS3 version first.

Great for PS2 owners with a big SingStar library looking to upgrade to a PS3, but what about the rest of us? We're intrigued by this patch.

If Sony can come up with a patch that lets one PS2 game run (even in a limited capacity) on a PS3 that doesn't otherwise support backwards compatibility, why can't the same be done for more PS2 games?
 

Sony: PlayStation 3 Console is Not Just for Games Anymore

200°
300w ago - Sony's PlayStation 3 Marketing Manager Kim Nguyen announced that starting tonight their Video Delivery Service campaign officially launches, with our first airing on Monday Night Football.

To quote: When the Video Delivery Service launched on July 15th, we broadened our content offering to include TV shows and movies to make the PS3 the total entertainment package.

With nearly 1000 full-length movies and 2700 TV episodes for download onto the PS3 or PSP, the Video Delivery Service brings you digital entertainment right into your living room (popcorn not included). So check out great titles like The Dark Knight, Hancock, Iron Man, Family Guy, and much more.





The TV spot uses humor to convey that the PS3 is not just a gaming machine but also a "movie downloading machine" when a guy tries to win over his skeptical girlfriend.

You'll have to watch the TV spot to find out how this classic guy vs. girl face-off plays out to see who wins in the end.

300w ago - To quote RichieJr of PS3Trophies (linked above):

Fallout 3 Trophies are out! And a lot sooner than most of you were expecting too! The 1.10 patch is now available for download, so you can start earning those sweet, sweet trophies. Now most of you can actually play the game instead of waiting for trophies

For the full trophy list, check HERE.

Thanks to MizuhoChan for first discovering the patch.

Note: It seems that the patch isn't available in a lot of areas. We're not sure why some of you can get it and some of you can't, all we can say is you're extremely lucky if you've got it. Hopefully it won't be too long before trophies are out for all.
