PS3 Motion Controller

Sony has just announced that its motion control peripheral for the PlayStation 3 will not be shipped in Spring 2010, as originally planned.

“We have decided to release the Motion Controller in fall 2010 when we will be able to offer an exciting and varied line-up of software titles that will deliver the new entertainment experience to PS3 users,” says Kaz Hirai, boss of Sony Computer Entertainment.

“We will continue to work to have a comprehensive portfolio of attractive and innovative games for the Motion Controller, not only from SCE Worldwide Studios but also from the third party developers and publishers, whom we have been working closely with. We look forward to soon unveiling the exciting software line-up that further expand and define the PS3 platform as the ultimate entertainment system for the home”.

Its not the biggest shock, spring is around the corner and nothing much is seen/herd about the device, but if the delay brings in better games for the Fall, then ALL IS WELL.

The All New PS3 Slim

by on Aug.20, 2009, under Gadgets, Gaming, News, Reviews, Technology

Its hardly a surprise that the new PS3 Slim is Officially ‘ON’. It’ll be out in the first week of September (September 1 in North America and Europe, September 3 for Japan), will retail for $300 (or 300 Euro, or 29,980 Yen), and around 20k in Indian market. It’s smaller and lighter, has a 120GB HDD, and packs “all the same features” of the regular PS3 while consuming 34 percent less power and taking up 32 percent less space. Existing PS3 SKUs have their prices dropped a hundie apiece tomorrow in anticipation, so be sure to grab a space heater while you’ve still got a shot though we’re not sure why you’d pay $300 for an 80GB PS3 when you can wait a couple weeks and get 120GB in a cuter package. A couple pics of the unveil are after the break.

The new 3.0 firmware will be released concurrently with the PS3 slim, which should provide a breath of fresh air for existing machines. Other new features of the PS3 slim include BRAVIA Sync, which allows you to control the PS3 XMB over HDMI through your BRAVIA TV remote, and System Standby to shut off the PS3 when the BRAVIA TV is off. Sony also claims this new machine will run more quietly than existing PS3 systems, which is good news for people who like to watch movies or have conversations in the general vicinity of their game console.

Check out the PS3 Slimmer and Fatter comparision in pics, the new one really seems to have reduced a lot. Below we have the PS3 video.
