Motion Control: can the PS3 avoid becoming a dumping ground for dreadful party games?

Earlier we announced that Sony Computer Entertainment had dated their new Motion Controller (a provisional title) for release this autumn. With its release in sight, we contemplate whether the PS3 with motion sensing is a match made in gaming heaven or whether we should expect to be overrun by a deluge of lobotomy-inducing novelty games – as has arguably been the case with the Wii.

The Sony Ericsson Aino is the first mobile phone to include the PSP’s Remote Play functionality, allowing you access to your PS3 whilst you are away from home.

Revealed: Why The PS3go Redesign Was Canceled

October 1st, 2009 marked the worldwide debut of the PSPgo; Sony’s latest PSP redesign with downloadable games and ultra portability in mind. That got me thinking, could the PlayStation 3 ever get the go redesign? Has Sony Computer Entertainment even toyed with the idea?

A lone document in an unsecured public FTP site had the answer to all of my questions. The PS3go was indeed under development but it was canceled before hitting the production line. The answer lied in a ten point feature sheet of an unreleased secret press release.

PS3 ‘Motion Controller’; go on, name it!

The recent showing of the Motion Controller at TGS, and the subsequent PR pieces that came flooding through to Attitude Towers, make one thing very clear to us.

Sony don’t have an official name for the glowy wand right now.

So go ahead, give the stick a name, and we’ll send all the most popular suggestions direct to Sony…

SplitFish SplitFest; Dual SFX Evolution hands-on and FragFX v2 review

We’re big fans of the classic Sony DualShock design here at Attitude Towers, so whenever we are presented with the opportunity to use optional third-party hardware to control our games, our eye is often super-critical.

So what did we think when we tried out the most unusual controllers yet devised for the PS3; the SplitFish Dual SFX Evolution and the FragFX v2? And do they make you better at online gaming?

New PS3: Why The Design Was Obvious

The PS3 re-design was recently revealed by Sony at GamesCom in Cologne.

While we were not surprised to see the new PS3 unveiled, it struck me as somewhat odd that no-one had thought that a re-design of the PS3 would look like the model that was unveiled.

Why?

ShopTo is cheap for PS3 Slim, but have The Hut trumped them?

ShopTo is cheap for PS3 Slim, but have The Hut trumped them?

Recently, ShopTo.com announced they were taking pre-orders for the new PS3 Slim at only £229.00 in the UK. So we thought we’d do some digging around to see if this really was the best deal for British PS3 fans.

As with any article of this type, the details are correct at the time of writing. With ShopTo putting pressure on other retailers, anyone could meet or beat that deal at any moment.

So where should you place your bets if you want a PS3 Slim next week? We’d suggest to take a look at all the options first…

GC09; Sony Conference, full summary

We’re at GamesCom in Cologne this year, and the first order of the day is to cover the much-anticipated Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Press Conference.

Whilst the rest of the Internet has been awash with rumour and speculation, as usual we at PS3 Attitude have bit our lips (and kept the ‘Drawer of Secrets’ locked), preferring instead to wait for the official word.

And now that word comes to you via our people on the ground, (almost) live from Germany.
