PlayStation Official Magazine UK Review LittleBigPlanet at 10/10!

50°
313w ago - Gnosis of VGChartz (linked above) reports that Dark_Overlord of the N4G Forums picked up a copy of the PlayStation Official Magazine UK and noticed they had reviewed LittleBigPlanet.

Needless to say, it scored a 10/10 (the first of many) and they couldn't give it enough praise.

The magazine stated that it empowers you in a way that was previously confined to the PC modding scene and actual game developers. They concluded that you would have to have a 'sack for brains' to miss out on this one.

Scans of the magazine were uploaded to ImageShack, but sadly all the links appear dead now.

The only image we managed to salvage was the one shown below. Enjoy!
 

Speculation: First Real PlayStation 4 Details Available

300°
313w ago - Earlier today we reported on speculation that PS4 could be based on Cell Architecture.

As a follow-up, camineet of NeoGAF points out the following via PC.Watch.Impress.co.jp:

Goto Hiroshige has received PSX4 spec info from Japanese developer sources who received preliminary spec from SCEI for developer feedback (whom Goto refuses to name due to NDA).

- SCEI has sent rough PSX4 spec to 3rd party developers for feed back. Based on the description, PSX4 is a Wii-tized PSX3, no more than 2X as powerful.
- SCEI wants to beat Xbox 3 to launch. 2011 is the deadline, or sooner.
- SCEI pulled all its engineers from IBM Texas, and there is no new CELL architecture being developed. PSX4 will use same CELL architecture with improvements.
- SCEI will dump XDR and use standard JEDEC memory type (GDDR3/DDR3) for main memory.

And so the PlayStation 4 rumor wagon travels onward...

- USB.0 high-speed data transfer
- Uncompressed video or optional JPEG compression

Downloads: PS3 Eye Driver / PS3 Eye Test [Fixed 320x240 frame (full sensor), Now capturing at 60fps.]

This makes the PS3Eye ideal for multitouch applications. The best part is the price $39.99!

Now, the main problem with this camera is that there are no drivers for Windows. The camera's chipset info is virtually non-existent on the Web.

After examining the camera internals I found that it features the OV534-LB50 camera USB 2.0 bridge and the OV7720 CMOS VGA sensor. Both of these are made by OmniVision.

I started thinking to my self: "This camera is awesome and it will be such a great and inexpensive replacement for...
