Below are the rumored details, to quote: "Sony Corp. admits that it does not have a mass-production PlayStation 4 box that it can bring out to the public. Nonetheless, the company seems to be pretty open about its plans regarding the new system and its current state. While the price of the PS4 is something that has yet to be determined, some reports point to the company’s alleged plans to start mass production of the device in Q3 2013.
“We are certainly capable of showing playable game content, but we do not have a mass-production box that we can bring out and pull out. That is still in development in terms of final specs and design,” said Jack Tretton, the president and chief exec of Sony Computer Entertainment America,...
76w ago - Following up on the previous report by Eurogamer, today Sony Computer Entertainment Senior VP Yoshio Matsumoto and Division 2 Software Development Head Muneki Shimada denied the report meaning there isn't a universal solution planned for making all PS3 games playable remotely on PS Vita.
To quote via Andriasang.com (linked above): "Freelance journalist Munechika Nishida conducted an interview with Sony's PlayStation Vita development staff for the latest installment of his "Random Tracking" series at Impress Watch.
He asked Sony Computer Entertainment Senior VP Yoshio Matsumoto and Division 2 Software Development Head Muneki Shimada about the reports.
"That information is mistaken," said Matsumoto. "The compatibility is achieved on the side of the PS3 game, just like normal."
Shimada agreed, saying that as with previous implementations of Remote Play, games will need API support."
87w ago - A year back we reported news of launching PSP games on a PS3 from Russian hacker GamerSuper, and today PlayStation 3 hacker Snowydew of Gitbrew confirms that PSP games are indeed mountable on PS3 but notes that only some are actually playable.
Below are some relevant Tweets from him on mounting Loco Roco (pictured below) for PSP on the PS3, and as always we will update this article as more details surface:
Yes psp games ARE mountable, but some are not playable. I'll try lumines to see if it works though.
rar the directories if you can and send it to "snowy" on the gitbrew irc, when i wake up i'll have a look
Games to be run on it. Time to look towards the psone classics then, that or lets see if i can mount actual psone games. This shall be fun
The loco roco i used was from a umd, not psn related. From the documentation i've been reading, it would require heavy modification for psp
I need the psn versions sadly , already installed is what i need / specific files that are in the directory.
The reason i say that, is because i own these copies. Hardcopies / psone discs and psn /ps3 installed...
182w ago - Now with the PS3 Firmware 3.10 update you can send an error report to Sony.
I encountered this personally just yesterday when I was playing Modern Warfare 2 and think its a good feature for future PS3 Firmware updates to reduce issues.
To quote: "Thanks to firmware 3.10, Sony now allows users to send an error report after an improper shutdown.
Freezing is an annoying issue and there is no way for everyone to be able to report such errors in an easy way. While it's unknown what exactly is being sent to Sony, expect information about your software and hardware to be sent.
According to a disclaimer before sending in the report, this includes PSN account information, the content saved on your PS3, and your email address. This information will be sent if it was being used during the time of the problem."
193w ago - Well, here's a bit of a curious situation... as Joystiq reports, it wasn't long after the PS3 Firmware 3.0 went live that the first reports of problems started cropping up.
One particularly nagging issue being that some controllers (specifically the CECHZC2H Ceramic White DualShock3) seemed to be locked out of the console once the update was installed.
To quote: After hashing it out a bit on the official PlayStation 3 forum, however, users apparently determined that the controllers in question were in fact knock-offs and not official Sony product, which raises some different but just as interesting questions.
Namely, is Sony locking the knock-offs out on purpose, or is firmware 3.0 just too much for them to handle? For its part, Sony doesn't seem to be saying anything on the matter just yet.
