Sony Struggles to keep 3rd Party Developers

Mercury News - October 19, 2007


Submitted by Kemkle33 (709) at 6:07PM PST on October 19, 2007


One piece of news that came out this week was that Sony pleaded with third-party developers not to abandon its struggling platform. That change in attitude is a marked difference compared to the arrogance of past years. The argument is that the PS 3 will show its strength as developers learn how to make games for it. But developers know they can staff four or five Wii teams with the same number of people it takes to make one PS 3 game.

Sony to see 10% boost in PS3 sales

Gameindustry - February 19, 2008


Submitted by ItachiItachi (463) at 7:25AM PST on February 19, 2008


Sales of the PlayStation 3 could see a rise of up to 10 per cent in the wake of Toshiba's pull-out from the next generation DVD war as a result of educated consumers who have been waiting for the format war to end. That's according to Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter, who also told GamesIndustry.biz that as well as the short term boost, the long term effect will be even more positive.

You choose any 10 BD titles under $30 within the store and they will override the prices to zero. For those stores that carry BD already, additional titles are being sent in for the sale. For those that do not have BD in their store (a small minority) product will be sent to each store specifically for this sale. Oh, and you still get your 5 FREE movies by mail.

IGN: We have a PS3 Slim “for real”

VG247 - July 18, 2009


Submitted by noobie (468) at 4:16PM PST on July 18, 2009


Whoops. Either IGN’s “having a laugh” on the subject of PS3 Slim, or someone just made a rather large booboo.Speaking in the latest Game Scoop! podcast, an IGN staffer appears to confirm the site has a PS3 Slim. The other speakers then say the console is “under wraps” and someone timestamps the recording to edit the comment out.

PS3 Video Store May Be Ready For Launch

Kotaku - March 3, 2008


Submitted by Animate (241) at 8:38PM PST on March 3, 2008


"One aspect of the Store that's been hinted about by reliable publications, like the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal, is Sony's download service, one that president Howard Stringer may be talking about when he refers to the "expansion" of the PlayStation Network. It may be Sony's best bet in fending off Apple's iTunes for movie and television distribution. And it may be closer than we thought."
