Sony PS2 handheld mod looks awesome

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2011

This PS2 handheld looks pretty amazing. It was created by modder techknott. Sadly this PlayStation 2 handheld was made for a client, not for you or I. Interestingly, as good as this thing looks, it doesn’t have a built-in battery pack. (It cuts down on cost).

Still, it’s pretty awesome and very mobile. And downright sexy as far as PS2′s go. Techknott did a great job. If you ask nicely, he might even make you one of these bad boys.

Sony opens "Official Licensed Product" program for PSP, PS2, PS3 peripheralsSony has a fancy new seal that they want to start slapping on new products. Specifically onto approved third-party peripherals for their game consoles. It could mean that we can expect better accessories or it may be a bunch of BS that does nothing but add a seal to products.

Before we can even guess what to expect, we have to wait and see who opts into the plan, and what nature of product they can get away with making. Hopefully it means better quality all around.

PS2 casemod inside of a book about video game violencePolitical statement or just a literary mod? You decide. Most gamers are well aware former attorney Jack Thompson’s stance on gaming. It’s nice to see that his book embraces gaming at long last, with a little help from Mattigus, a user on the Halflife2.Net forums who is simply brilliant.

Don’t worry. He bought the book used on eBay, so no 13-cent royalty for Mr. Thompson. It was also a library book, which not surprisingly, was never even checked out. It is an actual functioning mod.

Guy merges PS2 guitar with Guitar Hero: On TourWhen most of us are jamming playing Guitar Hero with our regular sized guitars, the last thing you want to be doing is play on a little handheld. But when playing On Tour with a tiny handheld, it might help a whole lot to have a real guitar.

This modder hacked a wireless PS2 guitar to integrate with Guitar Hero: On Tour and now jams extra hardcore. He attached the PS2 guitar directly to the DS controller. He also added an FM transmitter so the music can stream through a home stereo, rather then the DS speakers. Great job! Check out the video below.

Sony posts strong Q3 profits in PlayStation group

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2011

Despite a small 6% dip in quarterly sales year-over-year, “due to a decrease in sales in the game business resulting primarily from unfavorable foreign exchange rates,” Sony’s Networked Products & Services group, which houses the PlayStation brand, managed to post Â¥45.7 billion (about $564 million) in profits for the third quarter period, which ended December 31. That’s a 135% gain over the prior-year’s period.

Even though quarterly sales of the PlayStation 3 and PSP have lagged year-over-year, Sony is predicting 15 million PS3 consoles sold for the fiscal year, compared to 13 million for the year prior. This has a lot to do with “cost reductions” on the PS3 and significant gains in PlayStation 3 software sales. So things are looking great for the PS3 right now. As for the PSP and PS2, not so much.

Samsung’s HDTV-based app store passes two million downloads

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2011

Reaching two million downloads in a year is quite a feat when you are talking about apps from a TV maker and it’s the largest number we’ve seen from a TV maker as well. Today Samsung’s app store is available in over 120 countries and features roughly 380 applications, 259 of which are totally free.

It also helps that they have already sold tons of Smart TVs and plan to ship 12 million more in 2011 alone. Samsung definitely has a good thing going here.
