The same Senator who wrote an open letter to Sony asking the giant why it took so long to inform customers that their sensitive information had been compromised, has come out and praise the firm for its swift response and the the help it’s offered customers in the wake of the situation. He even said Sony’s response “could serve as a model for other companies facing similar criminal hacking”.
Inside Sony Japan, where most massive company decisions are made, the mood must have been joyful when it was time to release PS3: “Guys we have no competition!” PlayStation father Ken Kutaragi must have proclaimed. “PS2 is the most successful console ever made, and with over 130 million (at the time) sold, the PS3 will have even more success!” I imagine he didn’t stop there either, with his confidence beaming, and Sony wanting to once again put out the most compelling machine they’d ever forged, all sorts of technology must have been considered, and although price would’ve definitely be an issue, Sony wasn’t afraid.
“They’ll buy it!” I could hear Hirai siding with Kutaragi, “it’s PlayStation, damn it! Look at how many PS2s were sold!” Things were getting a bit touchy though, price range had shot up from $399 to now $599 and some execs were perturbed. “Are we showing too much confidence in our userbase?” Another thought to himself, yet he failed to utter the thing, since the two big dogs in the room held all the say. So Blu-Ray was implemented, OtherOS, Cell Technology – and the final product was a massive technological accomplishment, but one that came with a great price.
Sony’s longtime marketing executive Peter Dille will no longer serve at SCEA.
You might have played the online-only SOCOM: Confrontation developed by Slant Six, a game that wasn’t received well. But according to SOCOM 4 designer Ben Jones, their game is the “real” PS3 experience.

Naughty Dog must be feeling pressure right now, as their last game was the best thing the industry had seen in ages. It received over a hundred Game of The Year awards, and have stamped the studio’s name amongst the best of them for all time.
So it’s with little surprise we receive news that they’re working much harder than they’ve ever worked to make Uncharted 3 a huge success, even going the extra mile to take steps normally only taken in Hollywood.
It’s no wonder the team at Santa Monica might be hard at work on God of War 4. There’s new data showing proof that God of War III was the PS3′s best selling exclusive game for all of last year, with Black Ops being the PS3′s best selling game overall.
Sorry for the cliche’-esque title, but it’s true. According to recent job postings on the official PlayStation Careers site , Santa Monica might just be hard at work on yet another God of War game. We say bring it on!
Today, Sony had a conference to push their new 3D gaming campaign. Everything went down as usual, everything was expected and all seemed in please until this video appeared. It shows a guy trying out 3D for his first time when suddenly out of no where, a PS4 logo appears with the phrase ” Now Testing “. After all this years of Sony touting that PS3 will last 10 years, this really takes us by surprise. There must be a logical explanation behind all of this and we don’t think this is an actual “new” console.
