Finally, a real but expensive solution for the lack of infrared support in the PS3. This little device will translate infrared commands to BlueTooth for the PS3 to understand. Including the Power On and Off buttons! Only problem is, this thing costs $55. If anybody buys this thing, please post your comments.
Check out the final trailer of what will surely be the biggest selling game of 2008 (that’s GTA IV in case you were wondering):
*watches in HD*
It’s not the best trailer, not by a long way, but it still has me excited about playing GTA IV come April 29th!
SOCOM Confrontation is coming out on September 16th. I heard that it only has seven maps, so it better be a half price title!
1UP had this to say about the game:
To celebrate this news, tomorrow Sony will be launching SOCOM.com, an online community site devoted to the game. Pre-release, the site will provide regular news updates as well as a place for fans to get together. Once the game has launched, gamers will discover full integration with the website, including near real-time stat tracking, clan management tools, and more.
VideoGamer.com got their slimy little hands on Wipeout HD and got to fly some tracks with it. And they like what they see!
There are a couple interesting aspects to the game you might not be familiar with if you haven’t been keeping up with the series on the PSP.
For example, the game contains magstrips. These pink sections of track “lock your craft in place so it doesn’t go flying into the air as you zoom through the elaborate track designs“. Sounds cool. You can also take pics and store them, and you can also listen to your own music.
But the coolest thing seems to be a race mode called zone mode. The goal is to survive as long as possible while your craft continuously increases in speed. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Gotta wonder if there’s any splitscreen support…
