PS3 Link Love – 05oct06 | PS3Blog.net

First off, Amazon is already selling a PS3 peripheral! The funny-looking PS3 Chillstream controller by Logitech is selling for $39.99. Ooops! Well, it’s on the Amazon site, but you have to pre-order it. It’ll actually be released on November 22nd.

You can now get on Gamestop’s mailing list so that when they start doing pre-orders (or decide not to), you’ll be notified. Everyone should do this!

Gamestop PlayStation 3 Information

IGN gives a few details about the web browser that the PS3 will have. Like the fact that you can have multiple pages open at the same time, which is kinda cool, but I’d rather have some tab-like interface (like the PSP) instead of showing all those pages on the same screen. Maybe that option is there. Who knows?

In case you haven’t seen enough interface demos, IGN has another one of those as well. If you’ve seen them before, you probably won’t learn anything new here. But, well, just in case I put it here to make this article longer!

Last, you may have heard that Microsoft announced 1080p support for the Xbox 360. But is it really all that? IGN points out that most HDTV’s sold today that accept a 1080p signal do it through an HDMI connection. The Xbox 360 has none. So you need to have a display that’ll accept 1080p through a VGA connection or component video. Which is rare. Which makes me wonder if any developers will bother adding 1080p support to their Xbox 360 games if almost nobody can view the results. It’s bad enough for the PlayStation 3 – 1080p sets with 1080p HDMI are rare themselves (but becoming increasingly less so). But the rarity of Xbox 360 1080p compatible displays is much worse. Ah well.

  • You’re a PS3 news site, not a 360 news site. Stop being pissy little fanboys and stick to PS3 news, or post good AND bad news for all platforms.

  • Whatever.

    That PS3 controller looks very chunky. A little ugly too.

    It shouldn’t be a problem to use Firefox on your PS3 so tabbed browsing all the way!!

    Apparently Microsoft will release an HDMI cable for the 360 in the near future…

  • A Microsoft rep said (in that same article) that the Xbox 360 could put out a digital signal. Which makes me wonder why they haven’t done that yet? I dunno.

  • PS3 Chillstream controller by Logitech …….. I’ll pass. I will stick with the official PS3 one. My hands don’t sweat while playing games.

    “Microsoft just got back to us to clarify the Xbox 360’s ability to transmit a digital signal. In short, it can, which means that…”

    How did IGN come to that conclusion? Sounds like a jedi mind trick.

    Rich, in general we do try to avoid bashing Microsoft or the 360. I couldn’t avoid commenting on this story however.

    i like how all the things the ps3 had microsoft said you wouldnt even need, and now they are going back on all that and including adding it to the 360.
