Sony NGP features dropped to keep the price lower

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2011

Ever since Sony made the announcement about the Sony NGP everyone has been wondering how much it will cost. Sadly, we still don’t know. But we do know that Sony wanted to keep the NGP price as low as possible, and so they dropped a bunch of features from the Next Generation Portable before the final specifications were announced.

We don’t know what exactly was dropped, but the point is that it will be affordable. It doesn’t matter how many features a device has if it is out of reach of it’s market. The NGP will be priced competitively and not expensive when compared to other portable consoles.

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 ¥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.

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia play commercial

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

A TV commercial for the Xperia Play from Sony Ericsson has surfaced online. It shows the Android mascot getting some stitched on thumbs so he can game with the PSP-style controls. It’s a bit creepy. This Playstation phone is expected to debut at Mobile World Congress later this month if you have thumbs with which to check it out.

Unofficial specs include a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, a backside touchpad and the PlayStation buttons and the ability to play PlayStation Suite games made for Android. Other specs may include a five-megapixel camera with 720p recording and a four-inch touchscreen that has technology from Sony’s Bravia HDTVs.


Sony says NGP may run longer on battery, cost more than 3DS

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2011

Sony’s SCEA president Jack Tretton hinted in an interview that the NGP might ease some of the worries on battery life, but not on price. He said that the company would “certainly look to improve” the PSP’s battery life even with the five-inch screen and quad-core hardware. Engadget thinks that means more than the 4.5 to seven hours of typical use.

Regarding price, he hinted that the device might be a bit expensive. We are talking more powerful hardware and hopefully good content. He said, “I think if the quality’s there, then the people will find a way to buy it, within reason,”.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (PlayStation Phone) preview

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2011

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play was given its first detailed hands-on in our part of the world today. The PlayStation phone is fairly fast and runs a 1GHz Snapdragon. Engadget found that it now hits 59FPS in Qualcomm’s NeoCore benchmark and is capable of even tying the 43FPS of the dual-core LG Optimus 2X in NenaMark.

They discovered that the PSP Go-like controls mapped directly to regular Android navigation and could even be assigned to work in an emulator. The device won’t properly play games that need secondary shoulder buttons but the dual optical pads should replicate a game that would need analog sticks.

PlayStation Phone shows up on video

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2011

The PlayStation Phone has found its way into the hands of some folks and now a video has popped up showing one of these lucky guys playing Resident Evil 2 and Rage Racer on it. The hardware seems legit, but the titles had to be loaded through ROM Buddy (a third-party Android app for running ROMs), so we are guessing that the software is still being worked on.

At least that’s what it looks like, but this could be a hoax. You can check out the video for yourself below and let us know what you think.

According to Asahi Shimbun, the PlayStation Phone is expected in the spring of 2011 for a North American and European release. That timeframe fits with what we have been hearing and while we don’t know what Sony Ericsson has for CES, they’re planning some new Xperia-branded models for MWC. I guess we will find out soon.

Canadian thieves steal $1 million in Sony PlayStation items

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2010

Workers at a shipping facility in Brampton, Ontario discovered on Monday that a trailer containing $500,000 worth of Sony goods was stolen. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the very next day a second trailer went missing containing even more PS3 and PSP games and hardware.

The trailers appeared to have been stolen while they were parked and the driver was away. One had a Nebraska license plate, the other was from Ontario. If you see either-who are we kidding? You will be too busy playing Black Ops to care.
