Sony blocks online play on used copies of PSP SOCOM game

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on February 18th, 2010

In case you didn’t know, retail copies of SOCOM US Navy SEALs: Fireteam Bravo 3 come with a code that’s needed to unlock online play for the game. If you buy it used, a new code will be $20. Say what? You bought it used so you could save $20. That isn’t cool.

Well publishers don’t think the used games market is cool. Used games cost them money when you buy it at a discount rather then from them retail. But what can they do? It’s legal to buy and sell used games. They play games with these one-time-use codes in retail packaging that leaves used game buyers without the full experience. That’s what they do. Well, one of the things.

Jill Stuart’s Sweet Limited Package PSP coming in March

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2010

Don’t know who Jill Stuart is? Not to worry, I didn’t either. Apparently it’s some overpriced fashion brand for the weak of mind. This special PSP will cost you about $232 and hits Japan on March 4. I think I can pretty much bank on the fact that not one of you will actually buy this thing.

It sports a brand name, it’s pink. It’s just another PSP package. They think that women will buy it as long as it’s pink. Otherwise they don’t care what weirdos are interested in this.

Sony PSP-4000 coming soon with UMD?

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2009

There have been some rumors for a little while now about a PSP-4000 and some of them say that it might reinstate the UMD drive. Well, now it looks like an advertisement in a UK magazine for a PSP accessory has actually mentioned the PSP-4000.

Listing the supported devices for the PSP accessory, they show a PSP-4000 in the list. Many of you hate the UMD, but probably just as many would like the UMD drive back on the PSP. What do you think?

Survey reveals potential new PSP Go colors

Posted in PSP Go! by Conner Flynn on November 12th, 2009

Survey reveals potential new PSP Go colorsHandhelds are always getting color makeovers and since the PSP Go wants to fit in with the crowd, it wants some fancy new colors as well. Apparently there’s a survey going around courtesy of UK marketing firm Research Now with a whole bunch of color options.

The survey shows off several colors, including the already-available Piano Black and Pearl White. There’s Bright Red and Blue, which are neat. Then there are colors like Lemon and Coral which most will agree look more like urine and vomit. Maybe chewed bubble-gum and snot. See anything you like?

New Sony PSP bundles hit JapanThose living in Japan get all of the cool stuff. Sometimes we get it later, sometimes we don’t. The latest Sony-thing to keep gamers in Japan happy are two new bundles for the PSP-3000.

One of them comes with a new pouch, a 4GB Memory Stick and a cloth with the SCEI logo, the other includes Monster Hunter Portable 2G. I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting to get one here in the states.

PSP sales up 300% post PSP Go launch

Posted in Sony by Shane McGlaun on October 8th, 2009

pspgoYou know I admit that I wasn’t sure what to think of the PSP Go when I first heard about it. I have a few UMD games around and the thought of not being able to play them because of UMD not being part of the Go irked me. I guess that didn’t bother many buyers because in the days since the Go went official sales have gone up 300% according to Sony.

In addition to hardware sales climbing 300% since launch, sales of download games on the PlayStation Store have also climbed 200%. That means that gamers are actually buying games for the Go. The increase in sale isn’t in the U.S. only either.

PSPGo Converter Cable looks ridiculous

Posted in PSP Go! by Conner Flynn on September 24th, 2009

PSPGo Converter Cable looks ridiculousThe PSP Go isn’t compatible with your current PSP accessories, but Sony has come up with a solution. A ridiculously huge solution. Peripherals like the 1Seg Tuner and GPS Receiver will be able to fit in the Go’s proprietary “Multi use connector.”

The “cable” will wrap around the system, so that PSP Go owners can plug new devices into it. Doesn’t look so portable with the added bulk. Apparently this design is not final and it’s a prototype. Thank god. Hopefully they trim this thing down.

Sony announces Lilac PSP, Hannah Montana and Assassin's Creed packsAt GamesCom 2009, Sony announced plans to bring three new PSP-3000 colors to Europe. The new colors are “Turquoise” blue, “Lilac” purple, and “Blossom” pink. We already know about the lilac PSP. The other two are new colors (not colors from the carnival colors that were released earlier this year).

The turquoise PSP will come bundled with LittleBigPlanet, while the lilac PSP will be bundled with Hannah Montana, just like in the US. This news should make European girls absolutely giddy this November.

Modder hacks PSP for DualShock 2 control

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on August 13th, 2009

Modder hacks PSP for DualShock 2 controlAs far as DIY projects go, we never thought we would see a DualShock 2 controller hooked up to a PSP, but here it is, proving that if you can think it up, it will happen. It allows one to control Sony’s portable console from a distance, or at least from as far as the cable (Or your eyesight) permits.

What’s neat here is that this is a 100% detachable solution. It’s the work of a French modder by the name of Flasheur, who refuses to be told how and with what controller he can play by the likes of Sony.

V-Screen brings 3D to your PSP

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on July 22nd, 2009

V-Screen brings 3D to your PSPRealView Innovations is adding some much needed depth to PSP games this holiday season, with the V-Screen. The device “enhances the perceived depth of the 2D screen image.” So, we are guessing that it’s sort of like a pair of fancy 3d glasses that you set over your PSP instead wearing them.

Just realize that your PSP will no longer be so portable. It looks like this won’t require you to get right up to the PSP, so you shouldn’t look like Spock on the Enterprise bridge. Apparently it works with many games as well.

White PSP Assasin’s Creed Bloodlines bundle, $199

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on July 16th, 2009

White PSP Assasin's Creed Bloodlines bundle, $199Check this out. Apparently UMD isn’t dead just yet. Cold and possibly maggot ridden, but not quite dead. Sony just let loose some details on the Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines PSP Entertainment Pack. You’ll get the ghostly white PSP-3000 and 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, plus an unnamed feature film on UMD. For $199.

Weird huh? Even with the PSPgo, Sony is still trying to unload movies on UMD. The proprietary format that no one wants or supports. Will they ever learn? What are they thinking?

Sony working on PSP2, will have Xbox level graphics

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2009

Sony working on PSP2, will have Xbox level graphicsA rumor coming out of Spain suggests that Sony is working on the PSP2. The system would have graphical capabilities more or less like the original Xbox. According to the rumor, the GPU of the system is being handled by the same people who make the iPhone’s, Imagination Technologies. It’ll be able to support OpenGL 2.0 and Direct X 10.

Great graphics are one thing but the PSP’s real problem to date has been the lack of interesting titles. At any rate, we’ll have to see how this rumor pans out. But with better graphics, you’re gonna need more choice games.
