Yes, I know, GEEK! doesn’t usually talk about news related to games and games consoles, but this something I really wanted to mention.
Just spotted this on the internet (see below). It’s a remote PS3 controller which has been handmade by an experienced individual.
It features a 5” wireless LCD, sound, all the controls you’d expect, a 1.2GHz wireless controller, a mini-USB input, charger input, and headphone port.
For a handmade product, it does look pretty amazing.
Sadly, the creator doesn’t mention the wireless range (or at least not at the time of writing).
Still, it’s a pretty fantastic concept that will probably interest many gamers. According to the creator he will be selling the device as soon as a minor sound issue is fixed. Any guesses on what it might go for?
The PlayStation 3 “Slim” has been announced by Sony, and will arrive in stores on September 1st.
It will be one-third lighter and slimmer, with the addition of it being one-third more power efficient.
Also, Sony has said that the new version will be about £50 cheaper than the current PS3 model, costing £249.99 in the UK! Finally the PS3 is decreasing in price!
If you’re in the US, the new PS3 will cost you about $299.
In terms of internal features there isn’t much to get excited about – it won’t be much faster, but it will be nice to see a more space-saving PS3.
However, Linux users will be ashamed to know that Linux will not run on the PS3 “Slim”!! In my opinion, that is a big shame.
Ah well, hopefully the smaller price tag will attract a few more buyers and help the PlayStation rise in the gaming market!
