PS3News.com Goes Mobile with Forum Runner and Tapatalk

850°
173w ago - As we continue implementing ideas from the 2011 Suggestions, today we have added mobile support to our Forums through both [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] applications.

Forum Runner is an Android / iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad App that allows you to browse this forum using a native client.

This means faster access for those users since it only downloads the actual forum information rather than all the extraneous images that slow down the mobile connection.

Forum Runner is free for Forum viewing and $1.99 for the full featured app that allows posting among the extras.

The Metal Gear Saga Explained: MGS4 and More

50°
340w ago - Everybody - almost everybody - has been waiting, eagerly for the chance to start up their PS3s and boot up a round of MGS4. The series has been around for a while now,since 1987 for the original Metal Gear game, and the first PS version, Metal Gear Solid back in 1998 and the series come a long way since then.

So let's begin the basics of the game. I'll assume that most of you already know the central characters in the game, because otherwise why would you even be reading this? But if you don't and are still reading, please help yourself to Google or Wikipedia to understand what the hell I'm talking about.

The crux of the entire game lies in the Successor project introduced in Portable ops by character called "Gene" (who was created to become the perfect field commander). The Boss, Naked Snake (Big Boss), Gray Fox/Ninja/Frank Jaeger, Solid, Liquid and Solidus are all parts of this project initiated by the Philosophers and this legacy continues with the formation of the Patriots whom we get to a little later.

The Boss, along with a couple of others (Gene/the Cobra Unit) make up the origin of the Successor project initiated by the Philosophers. This is the starting point of all the events that ultimately culminate into MGS4 and beyond (Yes there is a beyond).Within Portable Ops, both...
 

Connect the PS3 to Your Phone, Starting Next Year

349w ago - Seems that Sony's not only trying to compete with Xbox Live and Nintendo's similar services, but also with Apple's iTunes. The news of the day is that the PS3 will be able to hook up to your cellphone and you surely know that this is just another reason for those PSP Phone rumors to resurface. We're already loving the Remote Play functionality featured on the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3 and we guess that it can be expanded in order to allow the next-gen gaming device to connect to many other gadgets.

Linking a PS3 to a mobile phone means hardcore media streaming and maybe a chance to take screenshots and capture videos from the games you play, plus some neat content management of your saves and files. We'll see this new feature being launched by April 2008, probably with the aid of a brand new firmware. I'm curios to see if the connectivity option is only available for Sony's phones, or we'll be able to hook up iPhones to our beloved consoles.

Can you read into the future and really figure out what such a feature means? Here's a couple of high-tech lucky guesses (even reaching sci-fi levels at times):

* We'll play games using our Sony Ericsson phones as joysticks, maybe even taking advantage of their vibration function and accelerometer

* In case you're hooking up a...
