Lovefilm could be headed to UK PlayStation 3 consoles

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 11th, 2010

Many Americans may not know what Lovefilm is and may have never heard of it, but for those living in the UK, it’s basically their Netflix. So UKers are probably very happy about a video that has since been pulled from Sony’s YouTube channel.

Basically Lovefilm streaming will be coming to UK-based PS3 owners sometime this autumn, with a bunch of search options available and free trials offered to those who’ve yet to try it out. We’ll likely hear more from Sony soon, but for now keep your fingers crossed.

PS Move SMG rifle accessory

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 7th, 2010

When Sony announced its PlayStation Move it also announced some accessories at the same time. Like a charging stand and even a light gun attachment. You have to catch up with those third parties who make cheap plastic Wii accessories after all.

And now CTA Digital has a submachine gun peripheral called simply “Submachine Gun.” Just clip your Move baton up front, slide the nunchuck part in the grip, and shoot away. Both the stock and scope are removable.

Sony confirms disc-free PS3 Netflix for US this month

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on October 7th, 2010

Finally, you will be able to watch movies on Netflix with your PS3, disc free! In the comments section of a recent entry on the official US PlayStation blog, Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein confirmed that a Netflix app is headed to US owners of the PlayStation 3.

This will happen sometime this month. US users should check the PlayStation Store for the app anytime now. Reports suggest that Canadian PS3s are getting it earlier than expected as well. Canadians do not have a mail-order DVD option, their service is exclusively a streaming one.

PlayStation Plus cards hitting retail

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 28th, 2010

Here’s more good news for PlayStation 3 owners. You’ll soon be able to purchase PlayStation Plus membership cards at retail. Gift cards granting access to Sony’s premium PlayStation Network are now being shipped to stores all over North America.

The cards have already hit some Target stores and will cost you $17.99 for three months of PlayStation Plus access. Sony also offers a 12-month subscription for $49.99. The service grants users early access to some demos and beta tests, discounts on software and the occasional freebie.

Movie studios to bring pre-DVD streaming to PS3, Xbox, more

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2010

Here’s more great news for PS3 and Xbox 360 owners. Disney, Sony and Warner are close to testing a system that would give Internet access to movies before they’ve reached Blu-ray or DVD. Disney would be the most aggressive and would allow viewers watch movies on any web-connected device and possibly the PS3 and Xbox 360 as well. Disney would likely be cautious at first, trying one movie under the plan in an early 2011 trial.

We aren’t sure if Apple would be involved, but Steve Jobs sits on Disney’s board of directors. In Demand, a partnership between Comcast, Cox and Time Warner, said through CEO Bob Benya that the collective is in talks for a similar option through cable TV and maybe online.

Sony warns that counterfeit PS3 controllers can explode

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 26th, 2010

Sony says that counterfeit PlayStation 3 controllers can be unstable, as in they might blow up in your hands. Or wherever it may be. Sony made an announcement to consumers, telling them not to take the risk of buying counterfeit products as it could cause them serious injury.

According to the company, counterfeit PlayStation 3 controllers, “identical in appearance to genuine PlayStation 3 wireless controllers,” have started cropping up in the wild. The company said that the “quality, reliability, and safety of counterfeit products is uncertain.”

PlayStation Move accessories charge controllers

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 23rd, 2010

The Wii had it’s turn at tons of silly attachments that make you look dorky and now it is the PlayStation Move’s turn. Nyko, Mad Catz, Interworks, CTA Digital, PDP and more are churning out plenty of plastic shells and chargers for those ball-tipped motion controllers.

You wouldn’t want just the Wii nerds waving around crap peripherals, now, would you? Looks like there is already something for everybody.

PS3′s 3.5 update now live with 3D movies

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

The Sony Playstation 3 3.50 update is now live. The new update adds 3D support for Blu-ray movies, not just the earlier game support. If you want to take advantage of the update, you’ll need a 3D-capable TV however, as well as active shutter 3D glasses and an HDMI 1.4 cable. That’s one expensive update if you want 3-D movies.

There’s also Facebook integration, allowing developers to incorporate more social networking into games. Another key feature in the upgrades is a Grief Reporting Function that allows users to report harassment through the Friends link in the XMB interface.

Red Dead Redemption goes undead

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2010

Red Dead Redemption already had a whole bunch of monsters thanks to glitches that produced bird-people, a donkey woman and even cougar man. But now Rockstar is intentionally going to add more inhuman enemies in their next DLC.

This DLC is called Undead Nightmares, and will feature “an entirely new mostly single-player campaign that follows John Marston as he tries to find a cure for the highly infectious zombie plague that has spread across the frontier.”

PlayStation Move now on sale at Amazon

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 17th, 2010

The PlayStation Move isn’t supposed to go on sale until September 19th, but that hasn’t stopped some local brick-n-mortar retail shops from selling early. And now Amazon has also jumped the gun and put the PlayStation Move $99.99 Starter Bundle up for sale.

If you choose the right shipping method and order today you may even get it in your hands before the 19th. Amazon also has the $399.99 PlayStation 3 320GB with Move Bundle, $49.99 Move Controller, and $29.96 Move Navigation Controller ready for purchase. The move is on the move.

MoveMen, Heroes of the PlayStation Move

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2010

Well, this is a bit odd. In an attempt to make you a fan of the PlayStation Move, Sony has introduced these two bubble headed dudes? They are called the MoveMen and they are stars of a new PlayStation Move ad push.

The campaign is directed by FilmFaktisk’s Lars Åndheim and looks like it is limited to Norway. They apparently fight crime with their glowing bubble heads, with PSmove controllers holstered at their side. It’s all rather silly.

Pink DualShock 3 coming September 21st

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 10th, 2010

The PS3 dualshock controllers are pretty manly looking. They look tough and we know that they are capable enough. But now Sony is rolling out another version. It’s the same old controller, but in a pink shade for the lady of the house.

Pricing is the usual $54.99 for this wireless controller and GameStop should have them in within a couple of weeks. It’s strong enough for a man, but clearly made for a woman.

Get organized with Level Up gaming towers

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2010

If you are tired of hearing, your mom, your wife, or anyone else complain about your lack of gaming tidyness, then check out Level Up’s new range of gaming towers for the PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and Rock Band.

They clean up your act and are functional as well. At $69.99, there’s really no excuse. They help you keep your consoles, accessories and controllers in one place instead of all over the place.

Classic White DualShock 3 appears

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 6th, 2010

The heavenly white PS3 Slim pictured above can be found in Japan, but the “Classic White” DualShock 3 beside it has just appeared for preorder at e-tailers in the US. We doubt very much that a white 160GB game system will follow this controller across the Pacific, but it also would not surprise us too much if Sony reveals one before these preorders ship on October 15th.

Because Sony already sells a “Ceramic White” controller, and as Engadget points out, unless you’re attempting to match colors, a single shade of white is generally all you need.

PS3 Jailbreak released to the public

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2010

I’m sure Sony isn’t too happy about this news. The PSJailbreak claimed to allow users to backup their games to a hard drive recently, and now a hack called PSGroove has surfaced, which claims to be an open source PSjailbreak.

This time the code has to be downloaded and installed on an AT90USBkey or Teensy++ USB development board, then you homebrew sorts will be able to execute unsigned third-party apps and games on the PS3. The ability to boot ISO files is disabled for now, but we are sure that a workaround will be available soon.
