Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on August 18th, 2009

Elecom drops 2 new Keyboards, for the Wii and PS3Wii and PS3 typists can rejoice. Elecom has your back. Elecom has released another pair of keyboards in the TK-U01MAL series. Both are available in USB with a 3m long cord, and are available in black to match your PS3 and in white to match your Wii.

Since these keyboards are primarily made to be used with the two gaming consoles, they have a “stand-up” design so that they can take up as small of a footprint as possible and be put away out of sight easier. Nothing on pricing or whether the Elecom TK-U01MAL series keyboard will be available in the States.

Kmart leaks PS3 price cut

Posted in Sony by Shane McGlaun on August 18th, 2009

kmartps3-sbThose rumors of a price cut coming from Sony on the PS3 have been swirling for months. There have even been lots of game developers that have pressed Sony to cut the price of tits console but Sony has kept insisting no price cuts were coming.

Sony is expected to make a big announcement at Gamescon today. The expectation is that the PS3 Slim will be unveiled and the PS3 will get a price cut. Kmart has jumped the gun, placed the PS3 slim up for preorder, and has run an ad that talks about the new lower price PS3.

French retailer says slim PS3, price cut due Sept

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2009

Sony placing PS3 slim manufacturing orders for delivery in July?French gaming site JVN today claims to have confirmed Sony’s slim PlayStation 3 through an unnamed retailer in the country. According to the source, wholesalers expect the slimmer, redesigned PS3 in September along with a price drop of 100 Euros to €300.

These new systems would come stark raving “naked,”… Without games. And stores haven’t been told what’s included in the hardware. Speculation is that a 120GB hard drive will be stock. If this pans out and Sony loves America, US pricing would drop from a minimum of $400 to $300.

Red and blue DualShock 3 controllers arrive in OctoberThese “Deep Red” and “Metallic Blue,” controllers are the mot patriotic dualshocks we’ve ever seen. Combine them with a white dualshock and you can call yourself an all American gamer. Sony says they should be available this October.

October is a little late for fireworks, parades and barbecues, but at least you’ll be rocking true American colors year round as you game with these babies.

Logitech announced drum kit for PS3 Guitar Hero

logitechdrum-sbI am a fan of music games and have spent lots of time with Rock Band. It continues to bum me out that Logitech doesn’t offer any controllers for Rock Band even though it does make some of the coolest controllers for Guitar Hero.

Logitech announced its latest Guitar Hero controller for the PS3 today called the Logitech Wireless Drum Controller. The device connects to the PS3 via a 2.4GHz USB receiver and can last for up to 50 hours on a single pair of AA batteries.

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

Best Buy to offer 80GB PS3 bundle with MGS4 and Killzone 2?Great news. It’s not exactly a price cut, but it looks like Sony may be about to offer one of its best deals to date to PS3 customers, with some help from Best Buy. Apparently, this is an effort to clear out the 80GB PS3s once and for all (to make way for… the PS3 slim?), Best Buy will selling a bundle that includes the console, Metal Gear Solid 4, and Killzone 2.

All for the usual price of $399.99. Not a price cut, but you get a lot more for your money. This bundle is supposedly set to go on sale as soon as next Sunday. Some of them have apparently already made their way into the stores’ back rooms.

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.

PS3, Xbox 360 price drops coming this fall?One of Ars Technica’s sources says that the Xbox 360 lineup will see price shifts this fall. They also confirm that the PS3 Slim is still on the way. In September the Xbox 360 Pro (Priced at 60GB, $299) will be replaced by the Elite (Priced at 120GB for $399). On one hand, the Xbox is getting a price cut. On the other, the 360 doesn’t sound like it’s getting cheaper with a lower entry level price.

You’ll also be happy to know that ars has also restated their claim that a PS3 Slim will arrive this fall along with price drops “on the hardware that’s out now.”

Details on PS3′s Motion Controller

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on June 22nd, 2009

Details on PS3's Motion ControllerAccording to Kotaku, Sony is touching base with developers and apparently the controller will launch in Spring 2010 (Next year’s E3 sounds right.) . Sony says that the controller will function “with any games across all genres from casual to [hard]core”.

To refresh your memory, the controller will work with Sony’s Eye camera and microphone, which will add face and voice recognition and make the motion tracking more accurate. Sony apparently told developers that the DualShock “could” be used along with the motion controller, much like how Nintendo uses the Wiimote and Nunchuck.

Sony PS3 price-cut rumored for August

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2009

PS3 price cut coming soon?You know the drill, Sony maintains that a PS3 price-cut isn’t in their game plan, but according to the latest leaks coming out from unnamed industry sources, the console will get a $100 reduction come mid-August. This is far from the first time we’ve heard this rumor. It was last making the rounds in February. But we think it’s looking more likely now and we expect this one to pan out.

The news comes from analyst Arvind Bhatia, who tips Sony as reducing the PS3 just prior to the launch of Madden on August 18th. Reduced price plus Madden will get Sony a ton of sales. It doesn’t hurt that this would coincide with the back-to-school shopping season.

Turtle Beach announces Ear Force P21 headphones for PS3

turtlebeachp21-sbMy son just got out of school for the summer and already he is driving me crazy. He can’t seem to play the PS3 without the explosions shaking the entire house thanks to the big woofer being cranked up on the home theater.

Turtle Beach has announced an answer to that problem with a new set of headphones for the PS3 called the P21 Gaming Headset. The headset has an inline amp for good sound and deep bass. The amp is powered by a USB connection to the PS3.

Rebel converter for the PS3

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

Rebel converter for the PS3For some time, Playstation owners with IR-based universal remotes have had to use bulky IR-to-Bluetooth converters so that the pair can communicate. Then along came Logictech’s Harmony, allowing, making thing easier on PS3 owners. But now Logitech isn’t the only one getting in on the act.

You now have another option in the Rebel from wb_electronics. It pretty much does what the Harmony does, transforming IR signals from your universal remote into bluetooth signals for controlling PS3 function and making the Playstation3 an integrated part of your home entertainment system.

Hybrid Watchmen PS3 game offers movie and game in one

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on May 22nd, 2009

watchmengame-sbWhen the Watchmen movie came out a few months ago, I rushed to the theater to see it. After watching a few minutes of blue wanger flapping around on screen I decided that the film wasn’t for me. Hopefully the video game will have less smurfy penis as part of the plot line. A powerful superhero should be able to afford underwear.

Warner Brothers has announced a new hybrid offering for the PS3. A single disc will offer fans of the franchise the Watchmen film and the Watchmen: The End is Neigh video game based on the film. The film itself will be a HD Blu-ray title.

PS3 Slim spyshots hit with Cease and Desist

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2009

Slim PS3 spotted?Remember that slim PS3 we told you about the other day? Looks like Engadget and Ubergizmo both received cease and desist emails from some mysterious Chinese manufacturer.

Why would a Chinese manufacturer, who is not Sony, be sending these out? Are they trying to protect their knockoff? We have no idea. But our guess would be that the emails could be coming from say, the manufacturer of the box or something. Because otherwise, it’s just too silly to think that a knockoff company is trying to protect their inferior crap product.

Slim PS3 spotted?

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on May 14th, 2009

Slim PS3 spotted?Check out this grainy shot of a PS3 “slim,”. If this turns out to be the real deal, it has a wild redesign and would be one of the smallest Blu-ray devices out there. This is similar to the Slimline PS2, with the familiar curve of the PS3, and even a slot-loading disc drive and 120GB hard drive.

Sony has officially denied its existence saying “We currently don’t have any plans for a redesigned PS3 at this time,” but what else would they say? We’ll probably learn the truth at E3, but at least we have some pics to back it up.
