Gran Turismo 5 Damage Model Details

For those of you familiar with Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, the for-pay demo for the incredible long-dev-cycle Gran Turismo 5, you remember that there was no damage model in that snapshot of the game; as beautiful as it was.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Looks Excellent

With a God of War heritage and MercurySteam’s unexpected talent at creating graphical marvels, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is shaping up to look like a beautiful launch for October.

Streaming Video on PS3 Slim Stutters and is Jerky

2 years ago I made a post about how video streaming on my original 60GB PS3 was stuttering and jerky. Years of comments, comparisons, 131 replies and the “PS3 Slim” later and it seems the problem has boiled down to: Jerky video playback on the original “fat” PS3s can, in most cases, be fixed by [...]

Sony has announced the PlayStation Move – also know as “Sony’s Wiimote” or “PlayStation Ice Cream Cone” as I like to call it.

Many Original PS3s Are Broken – Thought to be a Leap-Year Date Bug

Update #2: It appears that turning on your original “fat” PS3 can cause the data to become corrupted and potentially loose trophies or at least it appears you have lost trophies.

Not more than 2 months later some slides with 2010 3D plans for the [...]

Sony PS3 Will Deliver 3D Experience After All

We speculated back in August that the stars were starting to align for Sony around a Motion-controlled/3D future for the PS3. Our confidence in this fact centered around the recent motion-controlled demonstration that Sony gave for the PS3 at E3.

PS3 May Win… Years From Now with 3D and Motion Control

Back when the PS3 and Xbox 360 were first announced, we aren’t ashamed to say that we were avid fans of the PS3 platform… much more so than the self-aborting Xbox 360.
