Editor-in-Chief, Founder and all-round Big Cheese at PS3 Attitude. Despite it not having a sound chip of any description, I once wrote a working music creation application for the ZX-81...
CES 2009 is in full swing, and Kaz Hirai has taken the opportunity to bring us all up to speed on how well the PS3 is doing – well, certainly in terms of ‘connected users’.
According to Hirai, 85% of PlayStation 3 owners are online in comparison to 60% of Xbox 360 owners.
Yesterday, Sony gave their keynote speech at CES 2009.
Missed it? Don’t worry, because PS3 Attitude are here with the entire conference via the power of moving pictures.
Just don’t expect to be able to put on those old 3D glasses you saved from a copy of Bullet so you can experience Gran Turismo 5 in three dimensions – it won’t work.
Sony Ericsson was good enough to allow PS3 Attitude special access to the C905 phone over the Christmas period so we could exclusively try out its PS3 integration features.
Read on to discover why, if you’re a PS3 owner, you might want to consider getting your hands on one of these 8 megapixel superphones. Since you’re all nice people, we’ll even reveal some new features that are coming soon to the C905.
The most awesome thing happened this week, and everyone will benefit because of one reader’s kindness.
You’ll remember we had three Prince of Persia prize packs available to win before Christmas. You may also remember we had a fourth pack available in our charity auction, which closed on January 2nd 2009.
Reader and winner of one of the original three packs, Simon White from the UK, was so inspired by our cause he instructed us to keep hold of his prize and put it up for another charity auction.
Are you one of those people who like to chat away in your favourite multi-player lobby, within Home or via messaging on the XMB?
For as long as the PS3 has been around, a proper keyboard has been the best way to handle the situation. But a full size keyboard means you have to stop using the controller and grab a separate device.
So is the new Wireless Keypad the answer to all your chatting needs?
We haven’t just been sitting, eating, drinking and playing games whilst the Christmas period came and went. Although if truth be told, that is what we did most of the time.
In the few spare moments we had, we made some small changes to PS3 Attitude that we think you’ll like.
PS3 Attitude CDIt’s a funny old world out there. You go to write a ‘Merry Christmas’ post and all of a sudden you realise that people who are reading PS3 Attitude might not celebrate Christmas.
And somehow Merry Christmahanukkwanzaa doesn’t really cut it for me.
So instead we’ll say Merry Season’s Greetings to one and all!
You’ll remember we ran a competition recently where three of our lucky readers won an awesome Prince of Persia prize pack.
The pack included a copy of the game, a limited edition numbered print and many more collectors items.
Now you all have a chance to own this prize pack for yourself, whilst raising much needed funds for the PS3 Attitude Charity Fund.
We’re all about the winners lately, aren’t we?
Continuing the trend, here are the names of the three lucky people who walked away with our amazing Prince of Persia prize pack.
As promised, it is now time to feature the winners of our two biggest categories in the PS3 Attitude Awards for 2008.
First up we have the recipient of Game of the Year. You’ll remember that the nominees for this award were decided through an internal poll of the PS3 Attitude team. You then voted in your thousands to decide on the winner, with all titles being chosen from the release period between 1st December 2007 and 30th November 2008.
The Developer’s Choice Award is different. We talked to a panel of gaming luminaries and asked them directly; what was your favourite PS3 game of the year.
Today is the big day. It is time to reveal who you voted as the winners of our PS3 Attitude Awards for 2008.
Each category was littered with quality titles and companies that had a release on the PlayStation 3 between 1st December 2007 and 30th November 2008.
You voted in your thousands in every category (thank you so much), so let’s get started with your winners…
Every man and his dog seems to be talking about the ‘terrible’ sales LittleBigPlanet has enjoyed, but what is the truth behind the spin?
LBP has now sold more than one million units worldwide, and still the game’s performance has it’s detractors. Confusingly, we remember the sheer joy in the collective media whenMotorstorm hit the one million mark.
So how has Sackboy done in comparison, and what are the differences in the marketplace since that milestone was reached by Evolution’s racer?
Prince of Persia is available in the UK and Europe today, and to celebrate that fact we got together with Ubisoft and put together three prize packs that will make you say ‘wow!’.
For your chance to win one of these awesome prizes, read on…
PS3 Attitude now supports Google Friend Connect.
Prince of Persia.
Those three little words immediately bring back memories of one of gaming’s best loved characters. As with any new game in a well-loved franchise, there are also feelings of concern and trepidation as you load the latest in the long line of sequels; ‘have they done the series justice?’, you ask yourself.
Having now completed my first playthrough of the latest Prince of Persia title, I can answer that question most emphatically…
To celebrate the launch of Prince of Persia (out now in the US, arriving in the UK and Europe tomorrow), here are two exclusive wallpapers produced in conjunction with our friends atUbisoft.
Each wallpaper shows either the Prince or Elika made up of hundreds of tiny images taken from concept art provided by the developers. Download your wallpapers after the jump…
It is time for the Big Oneâ„¢… Time for you to vote for your PS3 Game of the Year.
The final category in our PS3 Attitude Awards this year is crammed with quality releases from your favourite developers and publishers. But which one stood out above the crowd? Which deserves the highest accolade from you, the people who play the games?
Vote now – you decide the winner…
Yesterday, the BBC launched their own official version of the BBC iPlayer for the PS3. So how does it compare with the sterling work of the person that created the unofficial version, and does it work well enough that you would actually use it?
