Too bad the freshly hacked PS3 will potentially mean that trophies become worthless as hackers release software containing copies of legitimate trophies to simply load and unlock.

Hackers leave PS3 security in tatters

gylo

7 years ago

This potentially means that the system can be exploited to completely de-value the trophy system which completely sucks. This could be done by releasing some dodgy game which unlocks a shit load of trophies from all sorts of games.

I'd rather pay for my games instead of dick around with hacks, many of us are now adults with disposable income, games are also cheaper today than 10 years ago.

There will probably also be issues taking your PS3 on-line after Sony have sorted themselves out so I'll wait and see to see the how this one plays out!

Great feature. Liking the E3 coverage approach of the serious (Digital Foundry) and fun (this stuff) and everything between. I assume that (hopefully) anything vaguely meaningful said by those guys was deliberately cut out! Otherwise they are the lamest fanboys ever.

Sony's Ray Maguire

gylo

Reality check Ray, a 3D TV in the UK costs way over 1500 making the barriers to enjoy 3D content way too high. With no content available, and probably very little content by autumn it will be years before 3D is common place.

Dont get me wrong, I love the innovation that Sony are tying to spearhead but we still aren't even close to having plain old HD television as standard let alone 3D. Until 3D becomes a bundled-in and affordable capability in all HD TV sets this will be a slow burner.

Sony confirms 23rd March, 425 PlayStation 3

gylo

11 years ago

It just seems a shame that we are so competitive about new console launches, lose focus and forget the potential benefits of a new console.

People get defensive about what they either don't understand or seem threatened by, even if you were not to buy a PS3 there's no reason to go on a tirade.

Half the people in this forum are probably complaining about the price because their parents pay for all their games. Not wanting to feel like they're missing out a group mentality forms to slate the PS3 in order to feel secure and believe that the console will fail so they feel happier.

Most others, including those with a Job, will complain so they they don't feel bad about what they have already spent in the last year on x360/Wii stuff and the prospect of something possibly better coming out. PS3 might not be better, it is a bit early but.... I sold my 360 because I was sick of playing a ton of western generic "man with gun" games in the 360. PlayStation game libraries are inherently more varied for my taste.

I have an alright good job, knew how much this would be long ago, so saving 10 extra a month to sort of subsidise the cost was no problem and I imagine wouldn't be for the working members of the forum. I'm not saying 425 is cheap! I just feel like it's worth it.

Long story short, stop complaining and trying to feel better about having bought a 360 when the ps3 is coming out!

Yes, it is expensive but I think it's an investment in the future. The machine is practically future proof and will be around for a long long time. If you think about it in terms of per year, it's only 60 a year for a 7 year life cycle. I bought my PS2 at launch and it is one of the best investments I've ever made! Focus on the long term, especially when the difference between 360 premium and the PS3 is only the cost of three games. Try look at the bigger picture.

I'm really disappointed with this game. The pacing is terrible, where checkpoints are very far and few in number. I get the feeling this was done to try and make the game appear longer than it actually is (no multiplayer) through continuous death. The whole thing about destructible environments is trash, what is breakable is pre-defined and no more than you would expect from any other FPS.

Hats off to Alex Ward though for making us believe the hype!

"JAP" is an abbreviation for Japan the country O_0, and not the japanese people when you look at import sites (e.g as opposed to UK). I'm not even Japanese, I don't even care anymore. I'm tired of typing about this, people can just go educate themselves.

Furbs I know what you mean, "Yanks" and "Brit" are fine and stem from wartime comradery. The term Jap is offensive to those of Japanese origin (and also stems from the war) and felt it is only used in a derogatory context.

Rambaldi, you have to be one of the most feeble minded individuals I've seen on a forum post in a very long time. Just because you say that your wife is from Pakistani origin doesn't mean you're not racist towards certain ethnic divisions. I personally find your generalisation of the Japanese development community as essentially a bunch of "Japs in a hello kitty sicky bubble" childish, racist and myopic in viewpoint.

Responding to someone who had the balls to call you out for you racially tainted comment with verbal abuse only undermines your argument. My friend, you are the one who needs to "smoke a pipe" and hopefully develop some sort of intelligence.

I think the fact that MS advertised all these functions and that they will not be accessible without the hard drive is pretty damn cheeky. The 360 was touted as being a complete media system. However essentialy the big problem is that now MS have segregated their user base.

In terms of media (downloading video and music as well as connecting devices and copying music) and the games (patches, new levels, demos) the XBOX260 execs have sold themselves short. Not every machine will be able to do such things effectively out of the box.

Also people without the premium package wont get backward compatability (if it will be completely backward compatible at all). In addition to this there will be a major disparity when developers devlop their games. Having to code again for user without the hard drive.

No HDD as standard = Divided user base

Lets not forget the limited life span of the DVD drive included. Just how will the High-Def era thrive on DVD.... not very well!

Tomonobu Itagaki is one crazy freak! He talks so much trash! have you seen his other interviews!!!! Not to mention his dress sense!!!! What the hell was he wearing at E3 this year...... metal studded leather-ette jackets are so not cool.

In the past he's said....

"I'm a graphics programmer so if I started so if you'd let me programe something I'd probably create something so crazy I'd crash the machine"

and in another interview

"Yeah I've already managed to break 5 dev units (X360), i pushed the machines too hard (starts grinning like a fool)"

He sounds like those guys who keeps on boasting about how many women they've slept with. This interview just exemplifies his bloated ego.

Global PS3 launch in spring?

gylo

13 years ago

As if Sony would treat Europe as an equal. I agree with Statix!!! I reckon it's all just fight talk (in a very respectful japanese manner ofcoarse) to keep us quiet and eager for the PS3. It's true that Sony must be one of the slowest manufacturers out there, they're even having trouble making enough dev kits.

Where the PS3 has the power theres a technological time trade off in manufacturing time. I wouldnt be putting it past m$ getting the 360 manufacturing process rolling already.

Sony and Microsoft are like girls. Microsft is the easy one who you know you could have anytime (world wide launch), and they're not shy about it. Sony is the classy one with the assets everyone wants to get a hold of but they know it and no one can have them!
