Details of upcoming PlayStation 3 model surface

Posted in PS3 by Reuben Drake on June 20th, 2011

Word of the new “CECH-3000” model PlayStation 3 surfaced earlier in the month and now a retailer is claiming to have received a briefing on the new model. The CECH-3000B is an updated 320 gigabyte system. Power consumption goes from 230W to 200W, and the weight from 3.0kg to 2.6kg.

The power and eject buttons are changed and the LED lights removed, but we don’t have specifics on that. Pricing will be the same as the current model. You can expect the new version to ship to retailers when the current stock runs out.

Sony 160GB PlayStation 3 bundle with Call of Duty: Black Ops

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2011

Let’s face it, Sony needs all the help it can get right now, with all of the hacks it has been suffering. That’s probably why Sony is teasing this limited edition PS3 bundle that gets you Call of Duty: Black Ops with a 160GB console.

The price is $299 and Sony’s also throwing in the First Strike content pack. It will be available next week, starting on May 31. If you are just getting a PS3 this is the one to get. This game will have you playing for months.

Sony to remaster some PSP titles for PlayStation 3

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 23rd, 2011

As cool as the PSP is, it is starting to look a bit dated. So Sony is introducing the PSP Remaster series for PlayStation 3, where Sony will port select portable game titles to the PS3 in high-def Blu-ray. Some of those titles may even have new add-on content and stereoscopic 3D support.

Another new bonus is that gamers will be able to share game save data between the two platforms. The key to the success of this will be what price they charge for these games that you have already played. The first PSP Remaster title announced is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, which is Japan only and arriving at an unknown date.

New Sony PlayStation 3 CECH-3001A hits the FCC

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on April 27th, 2011

We’ve had the same PS3 consoles on the market for a while now. The only significant change came with the new slim format. But now a pair of new PS3 consoles has hit the FCC recently. All we really know is that they have Bluetooth and WiFi and that we could have guessed ourselves.

The new consoles go by model numbers CECH-3001A and CECH-3001B. The letter seems to denote different HDD sizes. So what are the changes? Maybe a new update to the chipset? Maybe some updates to keep them safe from hackers too. Then again, maybe this is just adding a new HDD capacity option. Thoughts?

Sony releases Filmy movie viewing app for the PlayStation 3

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2011

Sony has just released a PS3 app for those people who watch a lot of video using the PS3. The new app is called Filmy and is designed to organize and play videos recorded in the AVCHD (H.264) format and can be accessed from the PS3’s hard drive or from a device attached through a USB cable.

If the videos are geotagged, users will be able to see where they were taken and sort them by date. The Filmy app is available in the media section of the PlayStation Store. The trial version is free, but it will only be fully functional for 15-minutes, after which you’ll need to pay $5 to access the full features.

$40 PlayStation 3 removed from Target’s website

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2011

Apparently some lucky folks may be getting a PlayStation 3 for just $39.99. We think. Of course word spread quickly about this promotion and thousands of orders must have been made while it was up. However, some 8 hours later, it was removed from the internet, replaced by an Error 404 page. It’s unclear if this was a mistake or a promotion, since Target and Amazon both listed the PlayStation 3 console for sale at $40. Our guess is a mistake, since $40 for a PS3 is just ridiculous.

But if you bought one, the PlayStation 3 console was legally purchased, so Target is bound to ship the console. And if that is accurate, the company is going to have some heavy losses because of this snafu.

Snakebyte PlayStation 3 remote with IR and Bluetooth

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 9th, 2011

Snakebyte’s Premium Bluetooth Remote has been announced at CES and it offers both Bluetooth and Infrared support, enabling it to control your PS3 and five other IR components. It also offers a backlit display, a built-in motion sensor, a built-in Li-ion battery and support for updatable firmware.

It looks pretty sexy. Look for it to ship this April for $49.99. Since it has both IR and bluetooth it should make it super easy to integrate this into your home theater setup.


Lovefilm now live on UK PlayStation 3 consoles

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

The PS3 really does do everything. It just got Hulu Plus in the US recently, and now the console has just started streaming movies action in the UK, with Lovefilm. If you are in the UK, it is free. You just have to have a £5.99 or above monthly Lovefilm subscription.

Just be aware that there’s a limit on how much streaming you can do at that price point. Those restrictions go away on the £9.99 top tier, letting you enjoy as many movies as you want.

320GB PlayStation 3 to retail without Move for $350

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

Sony has been selling a 320GB PS3 bundled with a Move controller, PlayStation Eye, and Sports Champions for $400, but now the 320GB model will soon be available all by itself. Great for those of us who hate to move around. At only $50 more, the bundle with the Move paraphernalia is a great deal though.

Sony says they are shipping the new standalone SKU to stores right now so keep an eye out for it and a spare $350.

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.

PlayStation 3 gets hacked by a USB-based modchip

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on August 22nd, 2010

The PS3 has been a tough nut to crack for hackers. Many have tried and failed, but now an Australian online store called OzModChips is claiming that they have a thumb drive that’s loaded with the world’s first PS3 Modchip.

The drive is available for a pre-order price of $169AUD which is about $150. I guess thats not a bad price to hack the device and copy games from discs and play pirated games. Not that we endorse that. It apparently works with any model of the PS3.


500GB PlayStation 3 coming, with new Wi-Fi, Move

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

An “industry source” speaking with games site CVG, says that Sony will release two new PS3 bundles this year, both including the PlayStation Move motion controller, and one of them featuring a huge 500 GB hard drive. One of the bundles will include a 250GB PlayStation 3 and the Move motion controller.

The other bundle will include a 500GB PlayStation 3 and the Move. That may be overkill. Then again, maybe Sony knows something we don’t. Maybe they have plans that take up a lot of space.

PlayStation 3 is HDTV ready with a Father’s Day bundle

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on June 3rd, 2010

The PS3 was technically never capable of playing games or movies in high definition right out of the box, but with this special Father’s Day PS3 bundle, it is. There’s an HDMI cable packed in. Of the many PlayStation 3 bundles so far, none have come with anything other than standard composite cables, requiring add-on component cables for 720p/1080i or an aftermarket HDMI cable for 1080p.

Your dad can rest easy knowing that he can enjoy LittleBigPlanet or a Blu-ray movie on his HDTV without having to run out and get the proper cables.

Sony delays PS3 Motion Controller

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2010

Sony has announced that its motion control peripheral for the PS3 will not be shipping in Spring 2010 as originally planned. Instead it will arrive in the fall, when they will have “an exciting and varied line-up of software titles that will deliver the new entertainment experience to PS3 users,”.

No big deal. We’d rather have a delay of the device with more quality games to play when it does arrive. It is a bit scary that this controller somewhat resembles a vibrator though.

Firefox coming to the PlayStation 3?

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on November 19th, 2009

Firefox coming to the PlayStation 3?Rumor is that Firefox will be coming to the PlayStation 3. According to a PlayStation Insider source who’s “very close to SONY”, the company has been talking about the possibility of porting Mozilla’s web browser on to the PS3.

Now this is just a rumor right now. A very thin rumor. A rumor about a possibility. That’s all we know. But how many PS3 owners would welcome the Firefox experience on their console? We’re guessing quite a lot.
