PlayStation and Sky launch Go!View for the PSP

PlayStation and Sky launch Go!View for the PSP
PlayStation has partnered with Sky to create a new video-on-demand download service called Go!View. As in…Go and view. Very clever. Those guys who name stuff really earned their money on that one. It will allow users to create TV schedules for their PSPs, completely tailored to suit the users individual needs and tastes.

You’ll be able to choose from a wide range of stuff like comedy, entertainment, sports and movies. You download it from your PC and watch wherever and whenever you damn well like. Never miss anything ever again. It works on a subscription or pay-per-view basis.

Waterproof PSP bath bag will make you wrinkly

Waterproof PSP bath bag will make you wrinkly
Possibly one of the most ridiculous things I’ve seen in quite some time, this is basically a fancy ziplock bag. A fancy ziplock bag that keeps your PSP dry so you can play it while taking a bath and getting all wrinkly.

I’m not sure why they are trying to sell you a sandwich bag that you can get anywhere. Then again, this one has that fancy drawstring at the top. Why not just put the PSP down long enough to get in the water and actually get clean with some soap. Your friends and loved ones will thank you.

PSP gets Colorware option April 14th

PSP gets Colorware
Like the DS Lite, the Sony PSP will be receiving the Colorware option starting April 14th. So for those of you who aren’t thrilled with the usual color palette, this is good news. It probably means that the new Bronze color and the Mint aren’t doing it for you. I don’t blame you. Bronze? Mint? The first is a statue color, the latter should be reserved for Girl Scout cookies.

There’s no word on what it will cost just yet to jazz up your PSP, but I would think that it’d be equivalent to the price for the DS Lite. Let’s face it, it beats th hell out of taking a can of Krylon to your console.

Pimp your PSP into an arcade machine

Pimp your PSP into an arcade machine
Not a full size arcade machine, of course. Your PSP screen would be really tiny inside of a huge cabinet. This might be the most useless PSP accessory ever, but it’s also one of the coolest. You can turn your PSP into a small retro cardboard arcade machine, straight out of the 80′s.

The cardboard mini game for PSP comes in a pack of two, with authentic graffiti and mall-rat trash. It only costs $12.49. This is a perfect way to relive your youth, but on a smaller scale. Personally I dig the Cosmic Intruders version.

Awesome looking Sony PSP 2 concept

Awesome looking Sony PSP 2 concept
Check out this pic of a new Sony PSP 2 concept. It’s pretty sweet looking and has a pretty big screen. Kotaku had a contest to see what kind of cool PSP 2 concepts readers could come up with, and this is one of them. Watching movies on this one would be very nice. Unfortunately, they don’t really exist. There were some pretty interesting designs, and some haha funny ones, but this is one of my favorites.

Sony PSP goes bronze

Sony PSP goes bronze
Apparently, the folks at Sony recently discovered the color spectrum and they aren’t afraid to use it. Last week, we announced the red PSP, then the mint green PSP. The bronze version is what happens to your PSP when it goes on vacation and gets too much sun.

It’s available as a new PSP Lite Value Pack, and will feature a paltry 32MB Memory Pro Duo memory stick and an AV digital cable. Pricing was €147 at press time. It will likely cost you more if you intend to import it. Anyone want to play guess the next color?

Sony launches a PSP Cradle with remote

Posted in PSP by Darrin Olson on March 4th, 2008

Sony PSP Cradle holds the PSP upright and comes with a wireless remote controlSony continues to come out with some pretty cool stuff for the PSP, and it looks like this PSP Cradle is a must for anyone that uses their Playstation Portable to watch movies. It would be especially handy for those in Japan that can get the 1seg TV signals, which is probably why this is unfortunately launching in Japan only, for now.

The cradle docks the PSP and holds it upright so you don’t have to hold it or balance it against something to watch videos, and comes with an IR remote control so you can set back and control the playback without having to get up and press the little buttons on the PSP. The PSP Cradle will also charge the handheld device when plugged in and docked, and optionally comes with AV cables to hook up a bigger scren.

Mint green PSP available in Japan

Mint green PSP available in Japan
If mint green is your color scheme of choice, prepare to feel the cool menthol sensation of this model, now available in Japan. If you absolutely must have it, you can always import one.

New red PSP bundled with God of War

New red PSP bundled with God of War
Take it easy PSP fans, we don’t have a release date just yet, but according to Kotaku, a red PSP will be hitting store shelves this summer bundled with God of War: Chains of Olympus. You also get Superbad and a gift certificate for a downloadable PlayStation Store game.

It’s a branded PSP similar to the Star Wars PSP from awhile back. Sure to be awesome news for those of you into God of War and the color red. Personally, I’m not much for this red version. If it were perhaps a bit pinker, I would dub it the Pepto PSP.

PSP Concept is a slick & sexy slider
This fan-made PSP concept is an awesome slider, with a look that beats the hell out of the old one and then spits on it for good measure. It’s got an amazing large screen and an iPhone style home button in front.

Just slide it open and it’s ready for gaming, revealing the D-Pad, two analog nubs, and the face buttons. This is one hell of a nice concept, considering I’m not much of a PSP fan and it’s got me wanting one yesterday. We can only hope that the next PSP looks something like this.

PSP firmware 3.90 now available with Skype

Posted in News,PSP by Darrin Olson on January 30th, 2008

Sony PSP 3.90 firmware update with SkypeWe’ve been checking daily for that next firmware update we told you about earlier this month that is to include Skype VoIP calling, and looks like it hit today. Version 3.90 is available for download from the Network Update menu on the PSP and will bring support for more PlayStation Network titles to the PSP along with the ability to make and receive free Skype calls on your Playstation Portable. The announcement comes today from Sony Europe but the update appears to be available for download here in the U.S. as well.

Unfortunately this feature is available only on the newer, slim PSP 2000 models and will require you to get a PSP headset and PSP remote control or Go! Cam to operate the Skype features. The 3.90 firmware with Skype lets you make free internet calls through the PSP Wi-Fi connection much like you would from a computer and will even let you setup a new Skype account on the PSP. If you have some Skype credit you can also make SkypeOut calls to landlines for a fee.

Skype on PSP delayed in Japan

Posted in News,PSP,Skype,Sony by Darrin Olson on January 23rd, 2008

Sony delayed launch of Skype for the PSPSony is only days away from releasing the availability of Skype on the PSP and the company has released an announcement saying that the January 24th launch will be delayed. In particular, Sony officials said that the microphone products they’ve created for the PSP to go along with the Skype service are what is causing the problem.

Both the Single Pack and the Double Pack microphones did not meet Skype’s specifications, and instead of going on without them Sony is going to hold up the whole works. A new solution and a new launch date for the Skype service and microphones for the PSP are being “sought after” and will be announced at a later time.

The good news is that this delay so far seems limited to Japan. It’s strange that they would come to this conclusion only a day before the launch. Are the microphones for Japan customers different and not up to standard while the microphones for the U.S. are acceptable, or is there some other force in Japan that doesn’t like the idea of free mobile VoIP minutes?

Go!Explore turns your PSP into GPS navigation system
Here’s some good news if you own a PSP and are in any European country. ‘Go!Explore’ is coming as early as Spring, to turn your PSP into a GPS receiver. Roam anywhere in the city and even if you lose direction, your PSP will work as a GPS navigation system.

Just attach the GPS receiver into the device and load a UMD that contains the relevant maps for your area. That means a 3D-map with relevant landmarks marked on it, in the palm of your hands.
