    Sony patent new B/c technology for PS3

    in Sony Discussion on 30 June 2009

    Sorry if this has been mentioned before: This is a patent for emulating the Emotion Engine.  For full working PS2 emulation you also need emulation for the Graphics Synthesizer.  The EU 60GB launch ps3's already emulated the Emotion Engine paired with a hardware Graphics Synthesizer.  This is not new....

    PS3 Fans/Owners- Are you glad/dissapointed that Sony is in last place?

    in Sony Discussion on 02 March 2009

    Anyone else bought Noby Noby Boy?

    How's your luck with consoles and handhelds?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 September 2008

    My PS3 died within two months (wouldn't start) and my sister seems to have killed a slimline ps2 (drive problems - not sure) after 2-3 years. My 1990's gameboy got a few black/white lines in the screen but still worked last time I turned it on. As for PC's I've had one hard drive fail and one screen die on me over 14 years....

    360 DVD better then PS3 Blu Ray for Gaming

    in Gaming Discussion on 21 July 2008

    Ah ha! So we're looking at this thread again?http://uk.gamespot.com/pages/profile/show_blog_entry.php?topic_id=23916169&user=skektekYep, the DVD drive in the x360 is faster. Personally the installs don't bother me. I realise not everyone has put a bigger HD in their ps3 though and it's annoying that some installs aren't optional....

    What made you buy your PS3?

    in Sony Discussion on 08 July 2008

    Price. It was cheaper for me to buy a ps3 (60gb euro model for 330 + 2 games) than get an x360 with the extras I needed (bigger HD, wireless connection). I would be completely satisfied if it had more local multi player games....

    Toms hardware have a (sometimes useful) comparison chart:http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/hard-disks/average-read-transfer-performance,675.htmlIf it was working properly, it would let you see temperature and read/write speeds of most of the models out today.

    New hdd for ps3

    in Sony Discussion on 30 June 2008

    Go to dabs.com (UK site). Higher spinning drives are not necessarily faster and they can produce more noise/heat. Stick with 5400, you'll get decent price/performance. I got a western digital 250gb and it's been fine - these drives are quiet and have good performance.Relevant...

    PS3 update bigger than first thought

    in Sony Discussion on 14 March 2008

    I noticed that BC was improved on my 60gb european model. FF XII movies are now watchable, but not great. Before they were hopeless, you'd get 1 frame every second or so. Now they are jerky and display in a black framed box, but you can at least tell what is happening....

    VGChartz Meetup, London - Friday 30th October

    in Website Topics on 31 October 2009

    I just got back from the expo, thought I didn't meet anyone there. I played some God of war 3 (also got the demo download code anyway when I got home - think they are the same thing) some NSMBWii and a few other bits and pieces. NSMBWii is a lot of fun with 4 people playing. I saw the Heavy Rain playable demo crash 3 times in 5 minutes (on 3 different PS3's). I got addicted to an indie game...
