Size doesn't matter?
Well this is kind of interesting. PlayStation has announced that three new, officially licensed PlayStation 4 controllers are launching in November across Europe. The running theme here is that they're all smaller than the regular DualShock 4. The company's calling them "compact" controllers. The pads come from three...
In addition to tweaking the PlayStation VR headset, Sony’s also announced a host of revisions for the PlayStation Move motion controllers. While this information comes courtesy of the Japanese PlayStation Blog, it looks like the main tweaks include a transition to Micro USB for charging (the same connection as the DualShock 4 uses) and...
But where can you buy them?
There are some absolutely awesome new DualShock 4 controllers on the way, but whether you can buy them will depend where you live. The full set – available in Asia from 11th October – includes Crystal (which is already out in some territories), Crystal Red, Crystal Blue, Steel Black (again, already out in some...
We’ve no idea why Sony doesn’t just make a DualShock 4 Elite, as it clearly recognises there’s a market in place considering it keeps partnering with third-parties to promote so-called “pro” controllers for the PlayStation 4. This time it’s Nacon who's giving the whole premium peripheral thing a second shot with the Nacon...
He slimed me
Much like with the PlayStation 2 back in the day, Hori has announced a Slime DualShock 4 for a new generation. The rotund peripheral – designed to tie-in to the release of Dragon Quest XI on the PlayStation 4 – includes all of the features that you'd expect, including (incredibly) a touchpad, mono speaker, gyroscope, and headphone...
Company files for bankruptcy
Peripherals maker Mad Catz has been bagged up and tossed in the river of bureaucracy like a litter of new-born kittens: the struggling company has filed for bankruptcy and all of its directors have resigned. The firm's been in dire financial trouble for a while after it threw all of its eggs in the Rock Band 4 basket –...
You'd think that a consumer electronics company like Sony wouldn't have too much trouble putting out a pair of headphones, but the anticipated PlayStation 4 Platinum Wireless Headset appears to have been pushed back again. It was originally due out this week, but Amazon's now showing a release date of 31st January. We're guessing that...
And Uncharted 4 is being updated with 3D audio
We're pretty big fans of the Sony Gold Wireless headset here at Push Square. While there are better sounding headphones on the market, we reckon that the official cans have a pretty great balance of quality, affordability, and usability. So we're pretty stoked that the Japanese giant's finally dated...
More buttons for bashing
Remember those officially licensed PlayStation 4 controllers that Sony announced a little while back? Well, one of them - the Razer Raiju - is out now in Europe. Unlike the Nacon Revolution, the Raiju retains PlayStation's traditional analog stick positions, which, as far as we're concerned, is the right way to go about...
Can you see it?
A new green camouflage DualShock 4 controller will blend into European store shelves in January 2017, and it'll be hoping that new recruits and war veterans alike take it home. The handset – which sports a similar pattern to the urban camo unit that Sony released a few years back – features the updated DS4 innards, so it has a...
Not even PS4's headphones can make the holidays
It's a truth universally acknowledged that Sony doesn't like the holidays – after all, when's the last time it released a major game in October or November? Exactly. And now it looks like its hardware is set to share the same fate; while the PlayStation 4 Pro is still very much on track for 10th...
It's safe to say that demand for an Elite PlayStation 4 controller is mounting, but for whatever reason, Sony seems intent on leaving cash on the table. Despite this, it has appeared to recognise the requests, partnering with Razer and Nacon to release two licensed "pro" controllers in Europe later this year. First up is the Razer...
And not just in Pog form
Who would have thought, when the Kinect was tearing up the charts and the PlayStation Move seemed like a lousy waggle copy-cat, that it'd be Sony's motion controller that would have a longer lifespan? Only today, this author played a handful of titles for preview with the illuminating wand – it's definitely on the cusp...
Are you a big fan of the DualShock 4 controller? Do you enjoy using the device with your PC and Mac? Then here's some pretty good news: Sony's releasing a wireless USB adaptor for the controller in Europe and North America, starting 15th September in the Old World and "early September" in the United States. The accessory will support...
Because why not?
With our attempts at creating meaningful YouTube content either drawing indifference or ire, we figured that we'd do something really dumb today – like, unbox a brand new Sony PocketStation dumb. Your humble host snagged this on eBay a few years ago, and it's been sitting in its packet ever since. Why? Because… Well, that...
Could it come with the PS4K?
For our money, the DualShock 4 is comfortably the best default controller on the market – and we're not the only ones who think so. However, the PlayStation 4's primary input device has been let down by generally poor build quality and bad battery life. Sony, however, may be about to update the device – if a patent...
Run and gun
This was a little buried among all of last night's mind blowing announcements: Sony's making a new Sharp Shooter for PlayStation VR named the PS VR Aim Controller. For those unfamiliar with the original on the PlayStation 3, it basically acted as a docking station for the PlayStation Move, but included some nifty features like a...
We love the DualShock 4 here at Push Square Towers, but it looks like we're not the only ones. The Wirecutter in collaboration with Engadget has determined Sony's current controller as the best option for PC gaming, despite there being a slew of alternativ
Playing with power
For many, the NES is a legendary console – even if ours spent more time on the blink than actually running games. If you happen to have one where the cartridge connectors aren't all mangled, however, then you may be interested in this exciting accessory: the Retro Receiver NES allows you to play your 8-bit games wirelessly...
Sony announced four new DualShock 4 controllers for Japan during its pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference earlier today, and at least two of them will be making the journey overseas. Confirmed on the European PlayStation Blog, both the Gold and Silver handsets will be making their way to SCEE territories – though there's no word on a...
Never stop playing
Even under the much more conservative leadership of former PlayStation president Kaz Hirai, Sony can't resist the odd pointless gimmick. Take this pocketable projector, which is about the size of a couple of smartphones and is being marketed alongside the PlayStation 4. Due out in October, the MPCL1 isn't exactly cheap at $350,...
PC elitists love to remind us how they're superior gamers, spending their days updating drivers and replacing their thermal paste. Unfortunately for them, playing on the ol' desktop precludes them from enjoying some of the PlayStation 4's exclusive titles – but they should feel right at home with this licensed Hori controller...
Turn on your TV
Sony's laser focus on gaming may have won it the first part of this generation, but the PlayStation 4 has been lacking in certain areas as a consequence. It's amazing, then, that the system's only just getting a remote, which is set to release in North America on 31st October. The officially licensed device – which can be...
Do not underestimate the power of PlayStation
On a day where practically every gaming dream one could imagine has come true... Well, why not toss the Anniversary Edition DualShock 4 into the mix, eh? The controller – which was originally only available with limited edition PlayStation 4 consoles – will be available this September in North...
Asymmetrical sticks FTW
Data shows that a lot of ex-Xbox fans have made the switch to the PlayStation 4 this generation, but not everyone's happy with the placement of the DualShock 4's analogue sticks. While many of us have grown up with Sony's symmetrical layout, others are more familiar with the asymmetrical format adopted by Microsoft – but...
Two becomes five
If you're anything like us, you'll be cursing Sony's decision to only include two USB slots on the PlayStation 4. Granted, it has made amends for the PlayStation 3 by giving the PlayStation Camera its own port – but with wireless headsets, controllers, flash drives, and more, we often feel like we're juggling our spare slots in...
Insert obligatory Spandau Ballet reference here
If you're the type of person that tends to toss your controller about, then you may want to steer clear of ColorWare's uber-expensive DualShock 4. The pricey peripheral – which is worth a cool $300 – is coated in 24 karat gold, and looks just about as swish as you may expect. The firm only made...
Raking it in
Giants Software’s curiously compelling Farming Simulator franchise may be the most authentic agricultural experience on the market barn none, but it would be a whole lot better with some tractor apparatus to really pull in the punters. Fortunately, those mad cats at Mad Catz are working on some Saitek-branded peripherals to make...
This is for the pros
Do you remember the SCUF 4PS – the competitive PlayStation 4 controller designed for professional players only? Well, after a particularly lengthy wait, the manufacturer has announced that the ergonomic piece of equipment will start shipping next month, with prices starting at $119.95 – and running all the way up to...
Well would you just look at that 'Wave Blue' DualShock 4 — how, er, blue it is. A detail from E3 that's managed to escape many, it was confirmed that the colourful controller will be surfing its way to North America this Autumn — or Fall, for you Americans. Unfortunately, despite nabbing the Paragon version of Sony's incredibly...
Give us some stick
There’s no denying that the PlayStation 4 controller is an enormous step forward from its predecessor, but early reports did complain about a defect in the DualShock 4’s analogue sticks. While we haven’t encountered the issue ourselves here at Push Square towers, a not insignificant number of early adopters have reported...
Are you good enough?
There’s no doubt that the DualShock 4 is an enormous enhancement over its predecessor, but those looking for a more customisable peripheral may be tempted by the new SCUF 4PS – a custom input device designed specifically for professional players. Due out in June, the competitive controller includes precision analogue sticks...
The waiting game
The PlayStation 4 controller has a pretty good chunk of battery life, usually clocking in at about seven or eight hours. However, if you're anything like this reporter, you probably constantly forget to charge the sleek piece of machinery, and are left trying to negotiate its criminally short connection cord. Luckily, Nyko has plans...
The seconds are ticking away ahead of Sony’s expected PlayStation 4 virtual reality unveiling today. In truth, the circumstances surrounding the anticipated accessory’s announcement are a little odd, as the platform holder is not planning a livestream of any kind. Writing on Twitter, Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida...
Sony’s rumoured virtual reality headset may be the worst kept secret in the video game industry. While the platform holder’s yet to publicly acknowledge the oft-discussed device, it’s been a source of insider excitement for over six months now. We first heard about the Oculus Rift-inspired accessory way back in September,...
Developers already have access to the device
Oculus Rift may be the biggest name in virtual reality right now, but sources suggest that Sony is poised to steal the upstart’s thunder at GDC next week. EDGE magazine reports that select third-party developers already have access to
Apparently it's really, really good
Sony’s worst kept secret will be officially unveiled during the Game Developers Conference next month, a secret tipster speaking with electronics publication Tech Radar has claimed. Rumours regarding an Oculus Rift-esque headset for the PlayStation 4 have been rife sinc
Always believe in your soul
Sony’s brand new wireless headset isn’t officially endorsed by Spandau Ballet, but it’s sure going to make the British band’s back catalogue sound absolutely stellar. The platform holder announced the versatile set of cans earlier today in conjunction with its
Make some room
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd, the sequel to SEGA’s strangely popular rhythm game, may be packed with dainty melodies and twee vocaloid voices – but there’s nothing elegant about its monstrous PlayStation 3 peripheral. The optional Hori manufactured extra – which rivals the first boss from Team ICO classic Shadow of the...
LEGO meets motion control?
There's nothing quite like a totally insane PlayStation Move patent to get your blood pumping, and today we've unearthed a real doozy. The trademark, filed in September 2013, describes a new style of augmented reality controller made up of various individual blocks that you can rearrange to construct any shape that you...
We suppose that it’s a testament to just how well the PlayStation 4’s been built that the DualShock 4’s light panel is a peeve at all, but it currently sits somewhere near the top of next generation gamers’ grievances. For many, the mandatory strip is an irritation, draining the controller’s battery life and prompting some...
We love the DualShock 4 here at Push Square. In fact, we think it's the best controller that Sony's engineering department has ever designed. However, if there was one complaint we could level at the next-gen gamepad, it would be its middling battery life. It can usually manage around 8-10 hours off a full charge, but if you're...
There’s no smoke without fire, and the thick plumes pouring out of Sony’s research and development department indicate that it’s working on an Oculus Rift-esque virtual reality headset for the PlayStation 4. The add-on was rumoured by several outlets earlier in the year, before
Out of stock
Sony’s revamped PlayStation Camera probably wasn’t at the top of your PlayStation 4 wishlist when you picked up the next generation console, but now that you've had a chance to spend some time with the system – and ogled The Playroom’s easy Trophy list – you may be coming around to the idea of snapping up the upgraded optical...
Strong speculation suggests that Sony wants to strap you into a new dimension of PlayStation 4 gameplay as early as next year – and Jonathan Blow’s upcoming indie title The Witness could be one of the first titles to take advantage of the unannounced virtual reality headset. Posting on the
Look left, look right
While we didn’t get a look at the rumoured PlayStation 4 headset during last night’s Spike TV launch livestream, host Geoff Keighley did take us on a tour of the platform holder’s brand new Magic Lab research and development department. Fronted by EyeToy creator Richard Marks,
Through the looking glass
Sony will step into the virtual reality arena imminently, claims a new report published by EDGE. Earlier in the year, sources suggested that the platform holder was deep into development on an Oculus Rift-esque headset for the PlayStation 4, which was close to being unveiled at TGS. Those murmurs are true according to the...
Showing its circuits
You can forget your customised PlayStation 4 controllers – this ace crystal DualShock 3 is taking us back to a time when everything from Tamagotchis to floppy disks shipped in see-through shells. Coupled with today’s strange PocketStation trailer, it’s clear that SCEJ is feeling a spot of 90s nostalgia – and it’s...
Down the lens
“Stop posting amateur unboxing videos,” we hear you scream. Alright, we promise that this is the last one – but even the cynics among you must admit that this is a novelty. It’s not every year that a new console launches, so it’s exciting to see the peripherals of the impending PlayStation 4 pulled out of their respective...
Sony’s new input device may only be partially compatible with the PlayStation 3, but you can fully use the DualShock 4 on the Xbox 360, assuming that you’re willing to jump through a few technical hoops. With the PlayStation 4’s revamped controller already out in the wild, consumers have been testing out the peripheral in a...
That's a DualShock
There may still be a few weeks left until the PlayStation 4 officially hits store shelves, but that’s not stopping some shops from selling the controllers early. One lucky YouTube user managed to get his eager mitts on a DualShock 4 from an unnamed outlet – and subsequently posted an unboxing video of the enhanced input...
Beyond the controller
Sony made Beyond Touch available on iOS and Android devices in September, a companion app allowing owners of Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls to control all of the game's action using their smartphones. This application was previously announced during GamesCom 2013 in August. As you can see in the image to your right,...
Add to basket
Unbelievably, it’s almost here. The wait for the PlayStation 4 has felt like an eternity at times, but we’re now mere weeks away from the system being unleashed. With the ending line in sight, Sony is starting to shower the web with images of items that you can expect to find on store shelves come launch – and we figured that...
Pens and paper ready
Do you remember mathematics exams? The questions would almost always include inane scenarios involving marbles and boiled sweets. They were designed to burn your brain as much as possible, and it looks like Sony’s aiming to give you a shot of high school nostalgia with its wireless headset compatibility policies for the...
Peripherals don’t ever get quite the same attention as games, but every console demands a quality set of accessories. Between the excellent Pulse headset, PlayStation Move, and G27 Force Feedback Racing Wheel, the PlayStation 3 played host to an enormous collection of must-own extras. Unfortunately, while many of those items will be...
Better when connected
Sony’s been fairly quiet about the PlayStation 4 camera’s features – perhaps in an attempt to avoid comparisons to Microsoft’s much more prominent Kinect peripheral. However, speaking as part of a roundtable at the Tokyo Game Show this morning, SCEJ executive Masayasu Ito casually hinted that the enhanced device may...
Due out this time next year
As the rumours surrounding the PlayStation 4 taught us before it was officially announced, there’s no smoke without fire. It seems, then, that Sony really is making a push into the virtual reality sector, quietly concocting a PS4 headset that could rival the Oculus Rift. Our friends over at Eurogamer.net broke the news...
Microsoft wins the pad war
While you could connect seven controllers to the PlayStation 3, Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 will support “just” four DualShock 4s. As always, it was Worldwide Studios president and beacon of knowledge Shuhei Yoshida that revealed the snippet, who was responding to a fan request on Twitter...
Sony’s ill-fated stereoscopic 3D push may feel like a bad memory at this point, but the platform holder has made several indications that it’s eager to get into the virtual reality market. With the Oculus Rift headset proving popular among gamers and developers alike, Eu
Happy action theatre
Sony wasn’t messing around when it admitted that it wanted to expand bundled augmented reality technology demo The Playroom. Speaking at a PAX Prime 2013 panel overnight, Sony’s chief of publisher and developer relations Adam Boyes confirmed that Double Fine – the developer behind weird Kinect minigame compilation Happy...
PlayStation Eye will enable voice recognition
You’re officially going to be able to talk to your PlayStation 4 console and get some kind of response. Following on from this morning’s reports, a Sony representative has told us that the next generation console will support voice recognition v
"PS4, play Killzone: Shadow Fall"
While we’re still not entirely comfortable with the idea of having conversations with our consoles, it sounds like Sony may actually be ripping a page out of Microsoft’s book. The product listing for the PlayStation 4’s enhanced PlayStation Eye camera on Amazon.com describes “navigational voice controls”...
Colour me beautiful
Sony has just announced two new colour variations to the PlayStation 4 DualShock controller, and they look absolutely stunning. The new two-tone designs are called 'Magma Red' and 'Wave Blue', and are currently priced at $60/€59/£54. The controllers will available day one for the PS4 in Europe on 29th November and "later...
Open your wallet
One of the announcements that prompted the largest cheers during Sony’s big GamesCom press conference today centred around reduced PlayStation Vita memory cards – but they’re not actually getting that much cheaper. Writing on the PlayStation Blog, the platform holder confirmed that the 4GB card will cost you $14.99 (down...
Whether or not you believe that Sony planned to bundle the new PlayStation Eye with every PlayStation 4 console, the platform holder hasn’t done a particularly good job of making a compelling argument for the peripheral. You’ll be able to pick up one of the dual-lens units at launch, but while there’s no doubt that the optical...
Living in the future
Sony’s a fan of making you look like a loon. After all, who could forget the fairly recent HMZ-T1 headset? We’ve still got neck ache from testing it out. As such, it’s little surprise that the company’s a fan of Oculus Rift technology, as evidenced by Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. “We’ve got a couple...
Find a Pulse
Sony’s not going to force you to splash out on an expensive new headset for the PlayStation 4. Chatting with Polygon at the San Diego Comic-Con, a company representative confirmed that PlayStation 3 wireless headsets will be compatible with the next generation console. That includes the platform holder’s own pricey – but awesome...
Data is quickly becoming the digital thorn in our sides. As technology continues to integrate itself into our day-to-day lives, it’s becoming increasingly important to have a sequence of fail safes in place should something go wrong. But while the art of backing up is now a common practice in the office and home, it’s less commonly...
Hardware manufacturer skips system because it's not a fan
If you’re hoping to snap up some Razer accessories for your PlayStation 3, then you’re bang out of luck – the third-party manufacturer doesn’t support Sony’s console because its gaffer isn’t a fan of the platform. Writing on Twitter earlier in the week, Min-Liang Tan explained...
Next generation, classic controls
Sony’s impressively ergonomic DualShock 4 controller may be snugger than a Cheryl Cole branded onesie, but it’s still unlikely to appeal to elitists. Those gamers that would rather play with rusty chainsaws than dual analogue sticks are much more likely to be wooed by WASD support – and Battlefield 4 on the...
While the enhanced PlayStation 4 camera doesn’t come bundled with the console, it’s still being touted as an integral part of the system’s setup. This brand new trailer deployed by PlayStation Japan shows off an augmented reality demo known as the ‘Playroom’, which uses a combination of the camera and the DualShock 4 to...
Prior to the announcement of the PlayStation 4, a number of outlets reported that the console would come bundled with an improved PlayStation Eye camera. Sony failed to clarify that point when it revealed the peripheral at its PlayStation Meeting earlier in the year, but the implication has always been that the system will be sold...
The announcement of the PlayStation Vita’s price sent rapturous applause throughout the industry. At the time, many pundits had predicted that the handheld would cost upwards of $350 – a figure not unreasonable for a company that’s famous for the extortionate price of its consoles. The firm eventually disappointed its critics,...
Worth sacrificing a kidney over
Sony has confirmed that you will be able to purchase this gorgeous golden God of War: Ascension controller as a standalone goodie in the UK. The delicious DualShock 3 was revealed as part of the prequel’s British bundle yesterday, but it wasn't clear if it would be available separately. However, the company has...
While a great many of us are more than happy to experience game audio through a gigantic set of speakers that tickle your intestines every time a bass line drops, the reality for most players is that they can’t be keeping the neighbours up all night with their entertainment pursuits. Some kind of headphone-based alternative is...
God of War: Ascension is a big deal. As the latest entry in one of PlayStation’s best selling franchises, it’s little wonder that the platform holder is preparing lots of merchandise to accompany the title’s impending March release. The latest gizmo to enter the arena is this rather fetching DualShock 3. Look closely and...
Don't get your hopes up, legendary SOCOM developer Zipper Interactive is still closed and, as such, it's not working on a sequel to the incredibly ambitious MAG. Instead, the confusingly titled MAG II is a gun-shaped motion controller designed for use with the PlayStation 3 and PC. The peripheral – set for release on 13th November in...
Turning a corner
Need for Speed: Most Wanted developer Criterion loves trying out new technology, so we’re not particularly surprised by the studio's decision to support the PlayStation Move Racing Wheel for its upcoming release. The crazy contraption can be used to control the car (obviously), but it also takes advantage of some of the device's...
It looks like developer SuperBot Entertainment is serious in its pursuit to ensure that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has a presence in the professional fighting game community. The upstart has announced on its Facebook page that the upcoming mascot mash-up will feature full support for arcade sticks. “We are happy to announce...
More than meets the eye
Sony’s hastily announced PlayStation Move racing wheel proves that appearances aren’t everything. The peripheral might look unwieldy at first, but it’s actually packing some interesting technology beneath the surface, as this video with Sony's Anton Mikhailov demonstrates. For example, the peripheral boasts a series of...
Always believe in your soul
Sony’s releasing a limited edition gold DualShock 3 to tie-in with this year’s Olympics celebrations. The official blurb explains that using the themed controller will make you feel like a “real winner”. Sure, unless you keep getting sniped by campers in Battlefield 3. The gold controller comes with all the...
Compatible with PS3 and Vita
Sony’s PS3-based DVR technology Torne proved a massive hit in Japan when it launched in 2010. Now the platform holder is aiming to level-up its domestic entertainment support with Nasne, a network recorder and media storage device that features a built-in tuner and 500GB hard-drive disc. The biggest difference between...
Step your game up
We know what you’re thinking: “How am I supposed to feel like a Future Soldier with a bog-standard DualShock 3?” We totally agree, that controller is so 2008. Alas, what you need is a custom Mad Catz controller designed specifically for Ubisoft’s upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Due out in May, the Pro GamePad will...
The PlayStation Vita's battery life is actually much better than expected
Pundits feared the worst when Sony initially revealed a three hour run-time, but now that the system is out in the wild, reports actually put the system's life somewhere closer to the region of five hours — even when all of its features are turned on. While five hours is decent, no-one could ever argue with more run-time..
Those of you in North America don't know how lucky you are
Not content with getting products for rock-bottom prices out of the gate, your nation hosts some of the greatest discounts in the history of, well, discounts. Take the recently released PlayStation 3D display (not yet out in Europe, we might add). Best Buy's already knocked $100 off the device's asking price. That means for $300 you can get..
The Internet has gone nuts again
GameStop has listed place-holder prices for the PlayStation Vita's memory sticks, prompting everyone to go crazy. Pre-orders were publicly cancelled on message boards, people said rude words about Sony and everyone got in a bit of a flap over nothing. The usual, really. But let's all have a moment of composition. The PlayStation Vita memory cards are going to be..
Quiet and steady has always been Sony's strategy with PlayStation Move, and in a year packed with steady software support, it looks like the tactic has worked out
A report on Industry Gamers puts the motion wand's sales at nine million units worldwide, while Microsoft has yet to release an update on Kinect's ten million milestone in March. The implication from the publication is that sales for..
Sony's pushed back the release of its PlayStation branded 3D display in Europe
The screen was originally set to release alongside its North American counter-part, but is currently without a date on Amazon.co.uk. As well as offering affordable 3D, the set includes a nifty local multiplayer feature that allows two gamers to view a full image on the same screen.
As has become common-place for any major fighting game release, Hori has announced a bunch of new Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 fighting sticks
The stick's are due to launch in Japan on November 17th alongside the game. The PS3 version will retail for ¥13,800. There's no word of a Western release just yet.
Are you a fan of the Soul Calibur games? You might want to prepare yourself for Soul Calibur V with an official Mad Catz Arcade Stick
Entitled the — wait for it — Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Soul Edition, the peripheral's been designed with Namco Bandai's weapon-based brawler in mind. The arcade stick will be made available in Europe, North America and Japan.
Sony's super swanky 3D headset will arrive in time for Christmas in the UK, with industry publication MCV slapping a December 8th release date on the device
The stocking filler will retail for a whopping £800, roughly a pound per inch of screen it simulates — with the headset capable of emulating a 750" 3D screen when placed firmly on top of your noggin. Hands-on impressions of the headset..
If you're new to PlayStation 3 then first of all: what took you so long? But seriously though, if you are new to PS3 then you might be in the market for a couple of extra peripherals to go with your shiny new system
A new bundle due out in North America from October 25th should get you sorted. The so-called "New Owner's Kits" includes a new DualShock 3 controller (in black), a USB charger..
If you're a member of the so-called 'gaming elite', you're probably of the mindset that first-person shooters can't be played on anything other than a mouse and keyboard
Thankfully Hori's got your back, with this licensed controller set-up for the PlayStation 3. Entitled the Tactical Assault Commander 3, the peripheral bundle consists of an optical right-handed mouse and a keypad. The pad even..
Sony's updated its sales figures for the PlayStation Move, announcing that it has shipped 8
3 million units of the motion controller worldwide. The number was announced by SCEA's Gabe Ahn during a GDC Online presentation this week. It's the first sales figure that Sony's announced for the PlayStation Move since it confirmed shipments of 4.1 million in December last year. It's unclear how many units..
Sony's prepping an updated PlayStation 3 remote controller for "late October"
The updated device will include support for various Sony products, in addition to Netflix. In order to enable these additional functions, the peripheral will include new channel and volume buttons at the base of the unit. No price has been announced yet, but expect it to be in the region of $25. [Thanks Joystiq]
If you're keen on rocking out with another, err, rocker, then Ubisoft's got your back
The publisher's announced a new 1/4"-to-USB cable compatible with its real instrument-only music title, Rocksmith. The cord will retail separately for $29.99. The game's due out on October 11th on PlayStation 3.
You may remember the Sony HMZ-T1 3D headset
We posted about it a few weeks back. The futuristic visor is designed to give its wearer the impression of playing on an enormous 3D television, and its out in Japan this November for a reasonable 60,000 Yen (that's about £480). In its latest product pitch, Sony's talked up the visor claiming that it has the potential to revolutionise gaming..
Disappointed with the PlayStation Vita's 3-5 hour battery cap? Sony has revealed an optional external battery add-on, that could extend the Vita's life to anywhere from 9 to 15 hours
The battery has a capacity of 5000mAh, which when added to the 2200mAh already included on board with the Vita should provide enough juice to keep the system powered beyond short sessions. A price has yet to be..
The PlayStation Vita will not launch with a memory stick
If you want to download (or even save) games, you'll need to buy some extra storage. It's the most disappointing PlayStation Vita announcement thus far — even an included 1GB card would have been welcome. Memory sticks will range from 4GB to 32GB iterations, costing from ¥2,200 ($28) through to ¥9,500 ($123). 8GB and 16GB cards will..
Gunnar Optics is bringing out a new line of 'Advanced Gaming Eyewear' complete with Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 branding
The Infinity Ward sponsored specs are designed to reduce strain and enhance contrast when looking at LCD screens. Perfect if you're planning a 12 hour Call Of Duty marathon. The glasses are set to release exclusively at Best Buy alongside the game, and will run you a whopping..
