How to play Resident Evil 4 HD on PS3

Resident Evil 4 HD released last week, but I waited until the weekend to download it. Due to various problems I have with Microsoft Points and my silly desire to play Resident Evil games on their "traditional" home, I decided...

PS3 firmware update 3.66 released to critical acclaim

I once had a glorious dream that Sony's PSN "welcome back" package would allow us to choose between six different firmware updates. That dream, sadly, never came true, but Sony's generosity is still abundant, with update...

The Jimquisition: How Sony can make up for the PSN breach

A few people asked for a video to sum up the whole PSN outage thing, and I thought I'd take it in a more productive direction that simply getting angry. I've proposed three very reasonable ideas (which Podtoid listeners can already guess) in order to make Sony look good in this whole thing. This is because I'm a very, very good person who is always looking out for the little guy.

PSN still not up, Sony no longer sure when it will be photo
PSN still not up, Sony no longer sure when it will be
by Jim Sterling

Last weekend, Sony told consumers that the PlayStation Network should be back up and running within a week. As you may have noticed, a week's gone by, and you still can't play Warhawk. Sony has therefore made a new announcement, stating that the PSN outage is back to "indefinite" status. 

"When we held the press conference in Japan last week, based on what we knew, we expected to have the services online within a week," said Patrick Seybold. "We were unaware of the extent of the attack on Sony Online Entertainment servers, and we are taking this opportunity to conduct further testing of the incredibly complex system.

"We know many of you are wanting to play games online, chat with your friends and enjoy all of the services PlayStation Network and Qriocity services have to offer, and trust me when I say we’re doing everything we can to make it happen. We will update you with more information as soon as we have it. We apologize for the delay and inconvenience of this network outage."

This has gotten so miserable that I don't even have a snarky, annoying retort. I just want to give Howard Stringer five bucks and a cup of coffee, and tell him everything's going to be alright.

The PSP2: What We Want
by Jim Sterling

Sony is terrible at keeping secrets. Killzone 3, Resistance 3, the PS3 Slim, the PSPgo, Sony has no end of cats to let out of its bag, and rare is the time we are ever surprised. The PSP2 looks set to continue this trend, with rumors and gossip surrounding what now looks like an inevitable announcement. 

Still, even though we know it's coming, the announcement of a new handheld is always fun, and the pre-release speculation never ceases to amuse. With that in mind, here's a list of things we'd personally like to see in the PSP2, in order to put it above and beyond the original PlayStation Portable.
