Best PSP mod ever adds LEDs, cam, joystick

Best PSP mod ever adds LEDs, cam, joystick

I have a couple PSPs around my house that have been here for a long time. They never get played because they just aren't that fun. My son plays the Nintendo DS and leaves the PSP collecting dust in the junk drawer. A new PSP mod has added some much needed cool to the PSP with a camera, joystick, LED lights, and a lot more.

Sony PSP Go suffering appalling Japanese sales?

Sony PSP Go suffering appalling Japanese sales?

Rumors of a Sony PSP Go relaunch seem all the more believable this week, as the latest - unofficial - sales figures for the handheld are released in Japan.  According to market watchers Media Create, Sony sold a mere 1,275 PSP Go devices in the first week of March; contrast that with Sony's own PSP, which sold 64,808 devices in the same period.

New Sony gaming smartphone & iPad rival tipped by WSJ

Sony haven’t exactly been on a roll lately, but that could all be about to change.  According to the WSJ, Sony are planning a new smartphone capable of playing downloaded PlayStation games together with a hybrid netbook/ereader/PSP to take on Apple’s iPad.  Both devices will apparently work with a new online media platform that the company are tipped to launch in the US later in March 2010.

Sony thinks iPad will boost PSP sales

Sony thinks iPad will boost PSP sales

I have said before that I never cared for mobile or portable gaming on smartphones or game consoles until I started using the iPhone and realized you could actually get decent graphics and cool games on a mobile platform. I have a couple PSPs and a Nintendo DS in the house and I still prefer to play on my iPhone if the mobile gaming urge hits.

Logitech developing UMD drive add-on for PSP Go?

Today’s PSP Go rumor strikes us a little bizarre, but we’ll admit that stranger things have happened.  According to a lone source speaking to gaming site CVG, Logitech are apparently developing a UMD drive add-on which could be fitted to the PSP Go, enabling UMD media playback though “it’ll make the PSP a little bulky”.

Nintendo DSi LL sized-up with PSP-3000: it’s vast!

Nintendo DSi LL sized-up with PSP-3000: it’s vast!

Nintendo's DSi LL hit Japanese shelves this weekend, and we hope those who braved the stores to pick up the new, oversized handheld had been doing their arm exercises; as Game Watch's comparison photos show, the "LL" moniker isn't just there for show.  Shown here next to a Sony PSP-3000, the DSi LL looks, frankly, huge.

Tegra 2 confirmed for next-gen Nintendo DS say sources

Tegra 2 confirmed for next-gen Nintendo DS say sources

It's almost as much fun speculating about new gaming hardware as it is playing on current-gen consoles, so color us intrigued at DigitalFoundry's "credible sources" who are saying that the next-gen Nintendo DS will run NVIDIA's Tegra 2 and that it's "not unrealistic" that the handheld will out-grunt the current Nintendo Wii.  Problem is, Sony's next-gen PSP2 has also seen a few spilled details, and that's looking even more impressive: think along the lines of potential GPU power in-between the original Xbox and the Xbox 360.

PSP Go Bluetooth tethering added in new v6.10 firmware

PSP Go Bluetooth tethering added in new v6.10 firmware

While integrated 3G connectivity was tipped for inclusion in the PSP Go back in its rumor days, in the end Sony went for the simple route and just gave their handheld WiFi and Bluetooth.  Thanks to PSP update v6.10, that Bluetooth can be used to tether the Go to a cellphone, meaning connectivity isn't just limited to wherever you can find a WiFi hotspot.

Sony PSP mini games fast-track approvals strips out networking, multiplayer

Sony’s PSP “minis” download games for the upcoming PSP Go are already prompting confusion, not least because of the company’s own guidelines for developers hoping to fast-track their submissions.  Sony has revealed its policies for PlayStation Network approval, including details on the “accelerated approvals process”; unfortunately, for titles to qualify for that process they must be single-player, have no network or downloadable content, and no peripheral support.

Sony PSP firmware 6.00 tips games rentals

Sony have released their latest firmware update for the PSP, and while v6.00 may look relatively innocuous at first glance, more careful reading of the changelist does suggest the company is paving the way for rental gaming.  Among the tweaks, Sony list “games can now be grouped and displayed in folders based on their expire date”; however until now the company has only offered expiring video content, not gaming titles.

Sony announces PSP Gran Turismo entertainment pack

Sony announces PSP Gran Turismo entertainment pack

I am not too sure about the PSP Go that will shed the UMD game capability. My broadband connection is not that great and it takes too long to download full video games for that to be viable in my house. I have to wait a good 30 minutes to download demos on the PS3 typically.

Super USB Mobile Phone Charger Charges More Than Your Mobile Phone

Super USB Mobile Phone Charger Charges More Than Your Mobile Phone

While we hate to admit it, a universal charger doesn't seem to be something that's going to happen any time soon for the mobile phone industry. And while we don't expect anything from the other personal gadget manufacturers, it's pretty ridiculous that we usually need to buy a new charger when we get a new phone. Making a standard seems to be the obvious thing to do, but hey, what do we know? Then again, if we had a universal rule of thumb for charging our phones, we wouldn't get cool devices like this.
