Following news that Sony would be cutting the price of its PS3 console, rumors are floating about that Microsoft could be set to do the same with their Xbox 360 console.

Wii off to a flying start in Oz

The Wii is off to a healthy start down under, having shifted 80,000 units in its first five months of release. That's 0.4% of the Australian population, for those of you who lie awake at night wondering about such things. Looks like those pre-order bonuses paid off. The Xbox 360 has sold 160,000...

Sony CEO is late to the party, says Wii is "wonderful"

First Peter Moore praises the thing (and even tries to adopt Nintendo's business strategy) and now Sony jumps on the bandwagon too?

Market research could have improved PS3's image

Few people hate Sony as a company; it is just the PS3 -- as well as the DRM and exploding batteries -- that pull the brunt of the ire. In fact, many of their other products are beloved by consumers worldwide and aren't decried by the media. The biggest reason is Sony's Electronic Division's strong...

Resistance padding files only 420MB per region [update 2]

[Update 1: We got our answer. The entire thing is blown way out of proportion. There are still padding files, but they're a relatively meager 420MB per region. 2: We've removed the original headline which read "Resistance = 17.75GB of garbage?" We've maintained the original post below for...

PS3 and homebrew; PSP all over again?

What's the first thing you'd do when you finally got your PS3 home? The logical step would be to slap in a Blu-ray movie or enjoy some Resistance: Fall of Man on your mammoth 1080p screen. One gamer had none of that and decided that booting up Super Mario Bros. -- a game released in 1985 before...

The mind of a PS3 scalper (hint: it's not pretty)

We know those waiting on the PS3 were a vicious lot. We've seen them -- or actually experienced -- these hoards mob game stores and act in a generally violent manner. Some of these gathering Huns actually wanted the PS3 for themselves, but others did it for the eBay markup. "Charlie", or so he...

PS3 is following in 360's footsteps

We're all familiar with the Ring of Death on the 360. If you see it, you know it is time to pull out the extended warranty slip -- or shell out another $400 -- because you're going to need it. Sony couldn't have any of that and are countering with their own: the Red Button and Beep of Death. A...
