Hori HP3-87 PS3 Dock for Gaming on the Go


As awesome as the Sony PSP is, it just can’t match up to the gaming experience offered by the PlayStation 3. But sadly, Sony’s gaming console isn’t portable, or is it…?

Japanese peripheral company,Hori, has developed a nice-looking dock for the PlayStation 3. The HP3-87 features a 720p display and stereo sound, and lets you enjoy your favorite video-games, even when you live home. This might not match up to the  HD television you have in your home, the 1366×768 resolution is more than satisfying for an 11.6 inch display.


PS3 Finally Fully Hacked?


I know it sounds hard to believe, but George Hotz claims he actually managed to fully hack the Sony Playstation 3.

After 3 years, 11 months and 2 weeks of constant trying, someone has actually succeeded in hacking the PS3. Although it’s not yet official how he did it, George said it was a clever combination of hardware and software. It took him a total of 7 weeks to pull it off, but for obvious reasons George Hotz is not yet ready to reveal the exact way he did the master hacking.

There’s a lot of reversing to be done, but hopefully George’s success will lay the basis to a tool that will allow PS3 users to have more control over their machines.


Sony Playstation Turns 15 Today

Can you believe it’s been that long? Personally I’ve had so much fun with my Playstation consoles, it feels like I just bought my first yesterday.

Today Sony celebrates 15 years since it launched the original Playstation on the gaming market. It was a massive success and sold over 100 million units until it was discontinued in 2006. In 2000, Sony introduced the world to the Playstation 2, a worthy successor to its original gaming station. The PS2 is the best selling gaming system of all times.

The long awaited PS3 hit the market in 2007, and though it didn’t have the success everyone anticipated, Sony saved face with the popular PSP handheld, launched in 2008. This year the Japanese giant managed to deliver a smaller, cheaper version of the Playstation 3 and boost sales numbers.

All I can say is happy birthday and I’m looking to 15 more years of gaming brilliance.
