Your favorite mic dropping CEO is stepping down from Sony and Playstation. Effective April 1st, 2014 Jack Tretton will be stepping down from Sony and Playstation. Jack has been with the company for over 19 years. Sony stated that this is part of an agreement reached by both Jack Tretton and Sony to not renew his contract.

Here is a topic I often talk to other gamers about, though most couldn’t care less until they’re system doesn’t work anymore.
Passed off with ether an “I’ll do it later” or a “I don’t want to break it”, nether of which will ever happen, never to be thought of again until the system is dead and all those games, saves, and spent data bandwidth are now as worthless as a paperweight.

Well protecting your gaming system starts the moment you get the shiny new thing out the store glass case.
Protection measures differ from home console and handhelds with their requirements and ability to protect the console.
I’m hoping to make a guide for both home consoles and a few handheld consoles (they differ so much.)

Today during SCEJA pre TGS 2013 press event Sony unveiled the rumored PS Vita redesign. Officially dubbed PCH 2000, the new Vita is twenty percent thinner and weighs fifteen percent less than its predecessor. Not only did Sony manage to make the package smaller they also put in a whopping 1GB of internal memory and a battery which last up to one hour longer . The newest version of the handheld has a LCD display instead of the much praised OLED screen the current Vita has, which could account for the extended play-time. Sony also showcased five new colors variations for PS Vita and mentioned that for transferring data to and from the internal memory as well as charging the battery Micro USB type B will be used. The new iteration will go on sale starting October 10th at a price of 19,929 Yen, next to the newly announced 64GB Vita memory card. Read the rest of this entry »

Sony have once again amused me. Initially, when the PlayStation Mobile thing came into being it was free for people to become developers, then they saw that they could make even more money out of it, and began to charge somewhere in the region of £70-90 annually (these are rough figures based on memory), and now, they’re stating that it’s possible to get it free again, but for a limited period, as we’ve mentioned a few weeks ago.

I personally think that everyone should sign up for this; even if you’ve no programming knowledge whatsoever. Why you may ask? Well, it opens up a lot for you. People can and have utilize this to make various applications that can aide the user.

After my previous article many people were wondering whether the extended PSN maintenance would also bring some sort of stealth Firmware update and that Sony would be offering free games to entice people into upgrading from their Uno or previous exploits. Well, this was not the case.

Those of you who have been following the Playstation Phone Saga probably already know that some “spy” videos started appearing recently on youtube, showing something that looks like a Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-PSP Device, matching the photos initially revealed by Engadget. New videos were posted today by gamerinn.com.br

This seems less and less like a secret, and it would be suprising that Sony can actually deny the existence of the phone until Februray (a Date that was initially hinted by Sony Ericsson), as some sites say we could even get an announcement as soon as December, 9th (next week).

The question of this phone supporting actual PSP games still remains, although my guess is that this won’t happen unless the phone embeds a PSP CPU, as emulation would require way too much work. Most likely, PSP compatibility won’t happen, which seems to be confirmed by the rumors that Sony want the phone to be branded with the Xperia name rather than Playstation.

Let’s wait, and meanwhile, enjoy the videos.

Of course, given the bulkiness of the prototype, these could be fake, or another unrelated phone attached to a psp pad, so takes this with a grain of salt. But my experience tells that fakers would have shown God Of War running on the device :P

Thanks to the people who hinted me on this especially p3ini and explitr , I know I haven’t be very up to date on this device recently, shame on me!
