Sony PlayStation Home for PlayStation 3 is Live, but Tech Issues

100°
315w ago - From TedTheDog, PlayStation Home Community Manager today:

* Technical updates are progressing and as you have probably seen the 1.03 patch is available for existing users already but the service remains unavailable whilst work is carried out

* Service should be back up everywhere early PM UK time although theres no specific time as theres a long list of actions being worked through in Europe, America, Asia and Japan

* New comers to the service will find the Home icon on their XMB once we activate it. You wont have to look for it, it will be easy to spot and will appear under PlayStationŽNetwork. However, if you are online on your PS3 when we activate it you will need to restart your PS3 for it to appear. Watch these forums for news on when that is. It will work like Folding@Home in that the icon will be there and you'll download the service when you first select it.

Edit 3pm: Still progressing nicely, now on the testing stage. No eta still as I wouldnt want to guess how long it will take for each region to verify its elements are working but we're getting there.

Edit 3:15pm: Not there yet, the testing is still going on, but I wanted to mention a couple of other things that need clarification.

The Far Cry2 and Uncharted spaces will not be...
 

YoYotech Fi7epower MLK161: This is the Fastest PC in the World

50°
321w ago - Powered by Intel's new £1,000 Core i7-965 Extreme Edition, the YoYotech Fi7epower MLK161 was configured with one purpose in mind: to break the world record in the benchmark that many consider is the de facto metric of overall CPU performance, SPEC CPU2006.

Thanks to Core i7's HyperThreading feature, that means a minimum of 8GB of extremely pricey high performance DDR3 memory is inside too.

However, due to the novel triple-channel layout, the system actually packs 2GB plus 1GB per channel for a grand total of 9GB.

So the CPU and memory alone have a face value cost of nearly £2,000.
 

Nine Top Tech Flop Predictions for this Holiday Season

100°
321w ago - Whether victims of excessive hype or consumer stinginess, these would-be sizzlers are likely to fizzle this holiday season.

T-Mobile G1 - Price: $179 (with two-year contract)

Google's hotly anticipated push into operating systems for mobile phones was a media sensation, but HTC's version of its Android-powered device is falling short of the hype. Critics say the "Google phone," which went on sale Oct. 22, is a little clunky with design flaws like no earphone jack and an oddly jutting chin. Close, but no iPhone killer.

Zune video MP3 player - Price: $230

Microsoft's latest answer to the iPod, with 120 gigabytes of storage and a 3.2-inch high-resolution color screen, is a vast improvement over the original Zune, which debuted in 2006. But the new Zune faces the same problem as the iPod: Smartphones and other Web-enabled devices chock full of features (think iPhone) threaten to render these one-trick players obsolete.

MacBook Air - Price: $1,800

Apple's not known for its fashion victims. But the MacBook's ultraslim design, introduced in January, starved the sleek laptop of fattening conveniences like a DVD drive and an Ethernet port. After a booming reception, the Air's popularity flagged as consumers opted for more fully-featured notebooks....

328w ago - Community Team Leader MusterBuster at the official European PlayStation boards (linked above) has posted:

"Unfortunately, a minor technical problem has caused a delay to today's PLAYSTATION Store for PS3 release of new content. We will get the content uploaded for you as soon as is possible.

Apologies for any inconveniece caused, and we'll be sure to update you with any news as soon as we get it."

For those awaiting FIFA '09, it is 753MB and now available via our PSN Links page located at: http://www.ps3news.com/subdomain.php?pagename=psn.

Shortly following, another Community Leader stated: "I really dont know when this one will arrive - what you read is exactly everything I know about the issue. I know you're all disappointed. But I'm afraid there is nothing I can do to make this content appear faster!!!"

Hopefully SCE will sort out the issues soon enough!
