Included is a 4GB memory card, a carrying case and the game Little Deviants. Near, a location-based service, has been developed and pre-installed so that gamers can meet up with friends or find out what they are doing. An AR Play game and cards allow users access to augmented reality game and downloadables. Adapter and USB charger also come with the WiFi portable gaming system.

PSP2 Has Online Capability

Sony's new PSP2 has a 5" LED screen and WLAN and 3G support. Gamers will be able to go online wherever they are and play games, and stream video and music from Qriocity.com. The PSP2 will also have front and rear cameras as well as two sets of button controls and motion sensors. Unveiled in Tokyo last week, the portable system is being named a NGP (Next Generation Portable) because of its advanced technology. Available at the end of the year, no price has been named as yet.

Chilean Miners Get PSPs

The 33 Chilean miners that are trapped have mostly amused themselves with dominoes and card games, but somebody was enterprising enough to come up with sending them Sony PSPs to help while away their time, because everyone knows if the confinement doesn't make you crazy, Tetris will. Although the portable game systems will only run about 6 hours before the batteries run down, it's the thought that counts. The miners have rigged a truck engine to provide lighting to recharge their helmet lamps so maybe they can come up with something.

The PSP Go has finally arrived and has the ability to download games, movies, tunes and TV programs from the PlayStation Network. The portable game system has a 16GB built-in flash memory, Bluetooth support and a 3.8" LCD screen. There are 13 mini games available so far and there should be about 50 by the end of the year. Each game is 100MB or less and will set you back less then $4.00.

Sony to Offer Blu-ray Streaming on PSP and PS3

Beginning in November, some Sony Picture films will include an extra disc that allows an additional download via USB. The PSP copy is accessible on the PS3 and in some cases a separate DVD is included. Both "Godzilla" and "The Ugly Truth" will be part of the collection. We call that a clever advertising move on Sony's part as cross marketing has a tendency to inspire holiday shopping.

Sony Announces Video-On-Demand for PS3 and PSP Owners

Our sister site TVSnob has some great news for PS3 and PSP owners, a new video service from Sony is on the way:

Just days after Microsoft announced Netflix would be coming to the Xbox 360, Sony has announced a new video service for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable that has already kicked off with 300 full-length movie titles and 1200 TV shows. That's just a start-Sony claims that they have signed seven movie studios to the service including Disney, Fox, MGM, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and Lions Gate.

Both HD and SD movie rentals will be available priced between $2.99 and $5.99 and TV shows will set you back $1.99 per episode, and you'll be able to purchase standard-def movies with the exception of those from Disney.

While that's some great news, we'd still like to see some free content coming from Sony.

PSP 3.80 Firmware Allows Media Streaming From the Palm of Your Hand


psp_dvr.jpg


OK so we are slightly late in reporting this, but we just stumbled across it and not actually owning a PSP we really weren't out there looking for info on PSP media streaming. Either way, it looks like a really cool update....if you live in Japan. Here is a list of the new functionality that is in the new update.
  • Streaming Internet Radio player
  • Video scene search
  • RSS now supports OPML and pictures
  • PSP-2000 owners with 1Seg tuners can use an EPG to schedule Japanese mobile
  • Television recordings
  • PlayStation Spot now available at BB Mobile Point (Japan only)
We can guess that some of these features might find their way into their US counterpart, but we doubt that they all will. If we hear of anything about this making its way State side we will be sure to update you at least a month late.
