PS3 Release Calendar


I just wrote an application that pulls all PS3 products in from Amazon and loads it into a Google Calendar. This makes it much easier to browse for new and upcoming releases. There are about a thousand products in there.

There should be a button on the lower right of the embedded calendar that pulls up a full size version.

I can just rerun this app to synchronize with up to date data, so if people actually use this, I will keep it up to date.

Let me know what you think.

    This is really helpful. I use google calendar all the time and being able to simply add this to my schedule really helps me plan financially.

    Sounds like a great idea – is it UK or US? Is it possible to have two separate ones. What’s the link?

    Hi, is it somehow compatible to iCal’s ics-format? That’d be so great! THX for the awesome work!

    Just a fyi you can also access the calendar here

    I’m thinking we should just use the Google Calendar one instead and drop the one we have and just combine it.

    @Darrin: yeah, how about an Amazon UK list as a second calendar in our calendar section, or can you change the colors or anything to differentiate the two?

    added to my calendars.

    You need multiple calendars. 1 for North American release dates, 1 for UK/EU release dates, 1 for AU release dates, 1 for Japan release dates, 1 for ps3blog.net contests, and 1 for ps3blog events

    Thanks for the calendar. It will remind me to add games to my to buy list for the end of the year.

    Can you filter the results comming in so that you don’t have doubles for the special editions etc

    Great idea! I made a EU g-calendar some time ago but the updates were manual, this is much better.
