Hori slaps an LCD on your PS3

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

Hori’s HP3-87 adds an 11.6-inch screen to your PS3 using a wraparound structure. It includes stereo speakers, two headphone jacks, and composite or component input options. The resolution is 1,366 x 768, so it will handle the 16:9 signal with its 500:1 contrast ratio, 7ms response time, and 200 nits of brightness.

Those in Tokyo can get it on May 27, when the HP3-87 goes on sale for ¥26,040 ($276). We aren’t sure when it will have an international release, but hopefully soon, so we can get our PS3s portable too.

$300 dollar dual joysticks re-designedGamers can be a picky bunch. We want things the way they work best while playing the game. When Japanese peripheral maker Hori revealed its $323 dual joysticks for the $15 Xbox LIVE Arcade game Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram, fans of the game were very vocal about how much it sucked.

The problem was that the layout was all wrong. Well, Hori heard your complaints and they have re-modeled the grip and layout. Now the sticks are sculpted more in-line with the Dreamcast original as well as the distance between the sticks themselves.

Hori’s Wii Classic Controller is fugly, has autofireI have always hated the look of the Gamecube controller, which is basically what we have here. It’s called simply the “Classic Controller.” Sure, there are plenty of other gamepads in this style, but not many get that fugly Gamecube look as close to the original as this one. And look at those autofire switches. It’s available in black, white, and blue on December 4th in Japan. You can pre-order one now for $29.90.

Hori Real Arcade Pro EX joystick

Hori Real Arcade Pro EX joystick
Hori just dropped the Real Arcade Pro EX arcade joystick for the Xbox 360 and it looks like it is a serious way to kick ass in fighting games as well as other old school games.

It gives you eight large action buttons and a ball-grip joystick that takes you back to the arcade. I was hypnotized when I saw this and went and got several rolls of quarters, which are now useless since I’ve come to my senses. Great for Xbox Live Arcade, despite the high price of $112.
