More Pictures of Life with PlayStation revealed

303w ago - Although it was first mentioned HERE, the above translated page from watch.impress.co.jp shows some additional very cool pictures of the new Life with PlayStation features.

To me, it looks like Wii channels in Hi-Def are coming soon. Interestingly it doesn't say PS3 so I'm wondering if they are going to release this for the PSP too?

There are more statements about PS2 gaming and Home. Click the link above to see some more detailed info on Life with PlayStation.

A croc comes to life in LittleBigPlanet

309w ago - Play. Create. Share. That's the mantra for the LittleBigPlanet team. We know that the "Play" aspect of the game is swell, but what about the creation aspects?

Media Molecule wants to make their creation engine as simple as possible, and they released a few images showing how a deadly crocodile can be constructed using just a few spare parts.

Playing with Legos was always fun, but something of this depth and magnitude has been almost unheard of -- at least for a mainstream audience.

Hopefully, we'll be able to showcase some original creations of our own when we get our hands on with LittleBigPlanet soon.

Sony releasing PSP 'extended life' battery compatible with both models

50°
333w ago - A Dutch PSP site has the scoop that Sony is to launch a brand new battery which is compatible with both the PSP orginal and the new PSP Slim & Lite.

The new 2200mAh should offer 20% more power on older models and 80% more life on the Slim version. However, on the PSP Slim, the battery will bulge out so new battery covers will be included.
