Netflix Streaming coming soon to PS3

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2009

Netflix Streaming coming soon to PS3You’ve been praying for it and now at long last Netflix streaming will be available “later this year” on the PS3. Just like the Xbox 360, it will be free with the $8.99-a-month plan. But with the PS3, you’ll enable Netflix via an “instant streaming Blu-ray disc.”

The free disc will activate Netflix via BD-Live. You’ll have to load up the disc every time you want to use Netflix for now. You’ll be able to order movies and do all of the other stuff right on screen without having to do it on your computer first.

A PS3 gets thrown into a Bravia TV

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 21st, 2009

The idea here is that if you buy a Bravia TV, they’ll throw a PS3 at it for you. Or something. Clever Australian marketing. Take one 46-inch Bravia TV KDL46X LCD and launch a PS3 Slim into it at 50 MPH. It’s sure to go viral. Or so they hope.

It’s a slow motion thing of beauty. Much more graceful than watching a Wiimote assault a TV. Very satisfying. So the moral of the story is to get yourself a PS3 along with that TV, because there are better ways to connect the two.

Blaze PS3 Motion Freedom 3D ControllerAs you know, Sony has moved into motion control gaming and the Blaze PS3 Motion Freedom 3D Controller will let you interact with Sega Tennis for the PS3, letting you play Tennis with real life motions just like the Wii. As well as other games. So heck, why not have the controller look just like a Wiimote?

We don’t know when the Blaze PS3 Motion Freedom 3D Controller will be released, or how much it will cost, but we wonder what Nintendo thinks about this design?

Warrior USB JoypadYour current game controller is probably a little boring. Why not spice things up with this Warrior USB Joypad? Channel your inner warrior and use his power to conquer your foes, while trying to forget how uncomfortable this thing is.

The warriors eyes light up and it will vibrate with compatible games. It’s compatible with USB, PlayStation PS3 and PS2. To me, this thing looks like a bat with a Samurai head. I think they may have created a new superhero.

Sony exec predicts PS3 shortages if record sales continue

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 23rd, 2009

PS3 sales up 300% for first week after price cut in USThe PS3 could face shortages during this holiday season if the current sales rate continues, according to SCEA chief Jack Tretton. He brags that PS3 sales have tripled since the price drop to $300 and the new slim redesign and says that it’s “conceivable” that these sustained sales could lead to some stores running out as demand outpaces supply.

The price drop alone has led to the PS3 outselling the Xbox 360 and the Wii. We’ll see what happens. Microsoft’s matching price drop for the Xbox 360 Elite might offset the discount, as well as the impending Wii price cut.

PS3 Motion Controller coming in March?Above is a Microsoft Word document from SEGA America’s official FTP site in SEGA’s news directory. It could be there as a joke, but if it’s real, then it reveals some interesting details. Mainly that Sony will be launching its PS3 motion controller in Japan in March of 2010, then elsewhere in the Spring.

There are also details of PlayStation 2 emulation on the PS3 and that “SCEA wants to sell all PS2 titles on PSN (GTA Vice City/Sonic/etc).” Want more? Maybe they will announce it at the Tokyo Game Show which starts Thursday.

Order Papa John’s Pizza from your PS3This is the tipping point. This bit of news right here. This is the very thing that finally, at long last dooms humanity to a Wall-E future, where humans are all fat and stupid. Yeah, why bother to use the phone? Who needs all that human contact? No way you’re heading to the store to pick up that pizza either, not the way your chins bang into each other like a pair of Kerbangers.

No, the best way to do it is to order pizza from your PS3. The Papa John’s site delivers ads for Sony games like LittleBigPlanet and the digital download PixelJunk Shooter, and makes it easy to order a pizza with your DualShock 3.

Yes, people are actually buying the console. This news surely makes the folks at Sony feel all warm and tingly, but that’s not it for good news. According to a survey by GamePlan Insights, five of consumers’ top 10 most-wanted games are actually on the PS3 (Gran Turismo 5, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War III, Assassin’s Creed 2, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2).

PS3 bringing 3D to games in 2010

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 6th, 2009

PS3 bringing 3D to all games in 2010In case you have been living under a rock, the big thing right now is 3D and the 3D bandwagon is bursting at the seams from so many people jumping on board. The PlayStation 3 is the latest on the 3D bandwagon, bringing a 3D mode to Sony’s console that will work with all existing games sometime in the next year.

To enjoy this feature, you will of course need a new TV that supports 3D. So it may be a while until this is really common. It’s one interesting direction that consoles are headed in, but what do you guys think of the whole 3D momentum? Is it over-hyped or is this really the future of gaming? We want to hear your thoughts.

Firmware 3.00 gets blamed for malfunctioning PS3 controllers

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 3rd, 2009

Firmware 3.00 gets blamed for malfunctioning PS3 controllersHere’s an interesting situation involving the PS3s firmware 3.00. After the PS3 firmware 3.0 went live the problems began. One issue that caught our interest is that some controllers apparently get locked out of the console after the update is installed.

After a lot of back and forth on the official PlayStation3 forum, users think that they have nailed the problem. It looks like the problem controllers were knock-offs. Is Sony intentionally blocking the knock-offs on purpose? Or are they just incompatible with firmware 3.0?
