The site only lists the 40GB PS3. Unusual?
A child was burned at Warner Middle School in Farmington Hills when the video game in his pants pocket caught on fire around 9 a.m. on Wednesday
Police said the fire burned a hole in his pants and Harold Clay, 12, suffered minor burns.”He said it wasn’t a gradual heat. It really started heating up. He’s always been taught, burn- fire- smoke, you drop and you roll. So, he was in his band class and he dropped and rolled,” said the victim’s mother Sheila Clay. Ironically, the name of the game that was inside the player was called Burn Out. The Parents say that the PSP was not ON. The Parent’s are contacting Sony on this.
Sony PS3 Lite from T3.com
Trawling the CES show last month, we happened across a rather juicy piece of gadget gossip.
According to a particularly well-informed insider, it seems that the Big S is prepping an all new PlayStation 3. The new incarnation is supposedly slimmer, lighter weight, and sexy as hell.
It’s not as if Sony haven’t got a history of making things slimmer and, er, lighter: The PSP shed a lot of its weight last summer, the original PlayStation ended up as the minuscule PSOne, and the PlayStation 2 re-incarnated as the PSTwo, which was an all-round sexier piece of kit to boot. Roll on PSThree?
Looking like the Wii right?>
After bleeding red for months, Sony’s games division finally turned a profit last quarter. Sony sold 4.9 million PS3s last quarter after slashing console prices, boosting game titles, and cutting production costs internally. Of course, we’re sure Wii shortages aren’t hurting Sony’s bottom line either. Sony did lower its annual sales goal of PS3s from 11 million to 9.5 million (citing a slow start) while increasing PSP projections to 13 million from 10 million as originally expected. Sony’s fiscal year ends in March. Overall, Sony’s profits rose 25% for the quarter. Welcome back to black Sony, it’s been a long time coming.
Ooooooooooooohhhhhhhh. Looks like the PS3 is catching up!
Engadget reports that new 120GB or 160GB model of the PS3 with DualShock 3 controller will be replacing the 80Gig version. According to an “inside source” — which Ars claims has been consistently right on video game-related predictions — the console-maker’s new plot is starting to take shape, holding fast to a two-SKU approach on packages, upping the hard drive capacity on systems. Spider-Man 3-inclusive system will disappear, only to be replaced with a 120GB or 160GB configuration. Hey! these are just rumors! ( I hope they come true!)
The plans have been disturbed…
Sony’s microphone/speaker units failed to meet Skype certification standards.
I was just putting technology in front of .wordpress.com and I found disturbing things.
