Sony encountered a major setback on Monday after LG landed a preliminary injunction banning the PlayStation 3 from sales in Europe. A civil court in The Hague ruled that any PS3s imported into the continent have to be confiscated by government officials for at least the next 10 days. The...
Coming into the holiday season, X360 and PS3 are now neck-and-neck for the year.
Microsoft has led the past few weeks since its summertime hardware refresh, and while the Sony Move has closed the gap, Microsoft still edged them out by 40k units this week. Wii, of course, remains the undisputed...
Global sales of Wii, PS3 and XBox through the week ending May 1, 2010. The "Observation Period" and total row is the past nine months, which isn't selected for any purpose other than I haven't compiled data further back.
The next firmware update for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system will be released on April 1st according to a post on Sony’s Playstation blog.
In the post, Patrick Seybold of Sony says that version 3.21 of the firmware will disable the “Install Other OS” feature from older versions of the PS3.
I have a PS3 Slim connected to Viewsonic LCD monitor via HDMI cable. The aspect ratio from the video games as well as from blueray disks is just fine, 16:9. When we play the old DVDs (not Blueray) the aspect ratio goes to 4:3. Same is true for other SD content. So, I know that HDMI works...
It's rare for a console to get a spec upgrade in the middle of its life. However, Sony has stealthily upgraded the PS3 over the past few months to unlock additional usable RAM for developers.
Hopefully the extra headroom (the current version occupies less than half of the RAM it used to) will...
Wow, the numbers were more dramatic than I expected:
From Jan 4/09 thru Dec26/09, PS3 outsold its competitor by 23%, or 2.25 million consoles globally.

Hi everyone, very briefly:
- LG 60PG60 connected via high quality HDMI cable to PS3;
- none of the three rear HDMI inputs support 1080p; however, the side one (HDMI4) does;
- HDMI1-3 show gray screen and image is corrupt
- when I set up my PS3 to send 1080i, the picture works on all inputs...
I'm not sure which one has been in development longer: GT5 or Avatar :p
But for those like me who are impatiently waiting for its release, a small GT5 demo being released later this week, which I'm assuming will be our best look to date of the driving physics and general 'feel' of GT5...
Sony Corp Chief Executive Howard Stringer brushed off concerns that the PlayStation 3 video game console is too expensive, and said the company is unlikely to sell parts of its business amid the recession.
Asked about the logic of not cutting prices, Stringer said, "I (would) lose money on...
Had a question for a friend, but if I like the answer, it'd be great for me too.
A buddy is building a 5.1 HT in his basement, and will be using a PS3 as his BDP.
As we all know, the PS3 must do the conversion for lossless audio, and output it to the AVR as PCM via the HDMI. (wow...
Biggest added feature seems to be the addition of (text) chat. I downloaded it last night, but haven't had the chance to play around with it yet.
Holy Smokes, those trophies are not easy to get! A far cry from those lame-ass Prince of Persia trophies.
Does anyone know if the trophy criteria is "AND" or "OR" ?
i.e. does one need to get 500 kills with a pistol "AND" 5 fives kills in a game with 15% accuracy "AND" fifteen kills with five...
I'm not much of a gamer, but I thought I'd pick up a console for the winter - something different to do. I'd love to know what people prefer between the 360 and the PS3. Here's what I understand thus far:
1) HDMI standard on the PS3 but only on the 360 Elite. An important feature for me.
A minor firmware update (V2.52) is coming to the PS3 soon and includes the following:
The playback quality of some PS3 format software has been improved.
A text entry issue that occurs when using the on-screen keyboard, USB keyboard or Bluetooth keyboard with some PS3 format software has been...
Looks like Japan has latched onto the PS3 once again as it stomped the other consoles in sales:
DSi -- 171,925

PS3 -- 39,587
Wii -- 23,123
DS Lite -- 16,369
PS2 -- 6,714
Xbox 360 -- 6,119
The PS3 beat the combined sales of the Wii and 360, and rose over 900% from last week when...
That is freakin' cool. David Hasselhoff is going to be a character in PAIN - you get to toss him around. He recorded a voiceover for it, including a cover of Culture Club’s “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me.”...
