Nintendo DS/Sony PSP arcade cabinet throws portability out the window

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on July 6th, 2009

Nintendo DS/Sony PSP arcade cabinet throws portability out the windowDid I miss something? I must have because I thought the whole idea of having portables was to, well have portability. You know, devices where you give up some graphics for the ability to play anywhere. So why would anyone want to make an arcade cabinet that plays DS/PSP games?

Just because they can. And I guess that’s good enough reason for any crazy mod. I may not understand why, but I gotta hand it to them, it’s unique. Check out a video below while I scratch and shake my head.

Venus JXD300 PSP-2000 Clone

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on June 30th, 2009

Venus JXD300 PSP-2000 CloneWe’ve seen our share of fake Chinese knock-offs. Sometimes they are a good laugh, sometimes they’re fascinating, but mostly they’re just stupid rip-offs. This one resembles a PSP-2000 and is called the Venus JXD300.

It can only play Nintendo Gameboy Advance (GBA) and NES games. It will also play a bunch of popular media formats like RMVB, RM, AVI, MPG, FLV and even Video-CD (VCD) files.

Sony opens “Official Licensed Product” program for PSP, PS2, PS3 peripherals

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on June 30th, 2009

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.


Sony designing Phone/PSP hybrid to compete against iPhone?

Posted in PSP Phone by Conner Flynn on June 28th, 2009

Sony designing Phone/PSP hybrid to compete against iPhone?Reuters reports that Sony is putting a team together, maybe as soon as next month, to build a combination PSP/Sony Ericsson handset. It makes sense. They have to look out for both Nintendo and the iPhone threat. But don’t get too excited just yet.

Even if Sony is getting started on this, chances are we won’t see any results for a while. Sony declined to comment, which doesn’t mean anything and this sort of rumor goes way back. Don’t get your hopes up just yet.

Sony hints at non-game apps for PSP

Posted in PSP Go! by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2009

Sony hints at non-game apps for PSPPlayStation’s Al De Leon was recently asked about possibility of developers producing non-game applications for the new PSP Go. His answer? He stated that content “will mostly be games, but there’s an opportunity to look at non-gaming applications.”

While that isn’t hard confirmation, it does suggest that they’ve began to look into non-game apps. Any guesses as to what we may see? Maybe we’ll learn more at Gamescom in August.

PSP Go forces you to buy all-new accessories

Posted in PSP Go! by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2009

PSP Go forces you to buy all-new accessoriesSony has a bunch of accessories that will be available for PSP Go when it hits US shelves on October 1. The usual stuff, like cases, wrist straps, Sony-branded screen protectors etc. Problem is the handheld doesn’t have a standard mini USB port like the PSP-3000, so you will have to buy all new accessories.

The PSP Go has a new multifunction port on its base that is used for everything, whether it’s data transfer, charging or video output. Asking owners of the older model to change a USB cable would have been fine, we think. But the fact that components like A/V cables, voice headsets and pretty much anything made to work with the 3000, are completely incompatible is a real slap in the face to PSP owners.

DIY PSP laptop mod

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on June 5th, 2009

DIY PSP laptopSure, the PSP Go! looks awesome. It’s slimmer, lighter, has downloads instead of UMD. But where’s the full QWERTY keyboard? Acidmods forum member folklord36’s PSP Laptop does have QWERTY, thanks to an Xbox Chat Pad. It also has relocated speakers, LED lighting and more.

The screen section is a modified Joytech visor that has the same finish as the PSP, and its sturdy hinge can be positioned at anything up to 180-degrees. We don’t know how long it took him to create this or how much it cost, but we wouldn’t mind having one ourselves.

PSP Go leaks out before E3Sony just announced the PSP Go! at E3. Haz Kirai joked that it had two names: The “worst kept secret at E3.” and the PSP Go! As expected, the slider has a 3.8-inch LCD, built-in Bluetooth and 16GB of internal storage.

It’s also 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than the original PSP. When you lose a UMD drive, you’re bound to shed some pounds, right? With no UMD drive, the games will load through the Memory Stick Micro slot or over the PlayStation Network. Sony says that the classic PSP will still be supported and loved on. Are you shedding a tear for the UMD? Be honest.

PSP Go! to be announced at E3, PS3 Slim is real

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on May 28th, 2009

Sony unveiling new PSP with slide-out buttons at E3?Ars Technica has a “very well-informed mole” that says that the rumored flash-based PSP Go! will be announced at E3. Then, later it will be sold right alongside the current model. As for the PS3 Slim, it’s real. And slim. But we don’t expect an announcement next week. We aren’t sure when.

Just a regurgitation of rumors we’ve already heard? Ars seems confident about the info. Either their mole is right or dead wrong. Their source says that the new PSP will be lighter and smaller possibly even cheaper. The PS3 Slim is just Sony doing what they do. They always miniaturize their consoles.

Developers told of PSP rental plans at GDC

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

Developers told of PSP rental plans at GDCApparently Sony’s been thinking of doing a PSP games rental service for a while. A recent consumer survey that Joystiq discovered yesterday gauged interest in a PSN-powered games rental service for the PSP. The theoretical service would have PSP owners pay a monthly fee for access to a library of new and archived games on the PlayStation Store.

According to a report by Develop, Sony unveiled plans of a rental service to developers at GDC last March. A PSN-centric PSP would be far more attractive to developers who have shied away due to piracy or other concerns. This news re-enforces that rumor regarding music downloads for the PSP.

Sony considers music downloads for PSP

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

50 million PSPs sold worldwideCNET has word that Sony’s been talking to some of the big recording labels about putting their music on the PlayStation Network for download, specifically for the PSP. It makes sense. The service already has a growing library of movies and TV shows. It’s just lacking music.

And since Sony is one of the four largest music companies in the world, they should be able to provide a few good artists. It resides in rumor territory for now, but we’d be real surprised if this didn’t happen. The PSP has never really lived up to it’s potential. This could help.

GameStop gets exclusive Final Fantasy PSP bundle

Posted in Sony by Shane McGlaun on May 15th, 2009

finalfantastpsp-sbSony often announces limited edition entertainment packs for its PSP console that bundle some new game with an exclusive color and other items to entice users to buy its portable console. The PSP-3000 is getting a bit long in the tooth now and rumors are circulating that a new PSP may be coming.

I’m not sure about the new PSP yet, but GameStop is getting a new exclusive PSP bundle to go along with the launch of the Dissidia Final Fantasy game. The bundle will include a mystic silver PSP-3000, Dissidia Final Fantasy game, Final Fantasy VII Advent Children CGI movie UMD, and a 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo.

Sony unveiling new PSP with slide-out buttons at E3?

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2009

Sony unveiling new PSP with slide-out buttons at E3?Rumors of a major PSP hardware redesign have repeatedly surfaced over the last several months. There have been claims that the UMD disc drive is gone, and others pointing to a second analog stick and sliding screen. 1up cites some sources directly involved with the new system and says that Sony will unveil their revamped PSP at this year’s E3 conference in June.

Here’s the breakdown. The UMD is gone, replaced with options for 8GB or 16GB of built-in flash memory. Three rumored names include PSP Slide, PSP Flip, and PSP Go!. That last borrows from Sony’s Go! brand and has us thinking there might be a built-in camera. The same D-pad, analog nub, and face button configuration, but they now slide out from the bottom of the unit.
