September 1st, a new system software update (version 3) will be available for the PlayStation 3 (via “System Update” on the XMB/XrossMediaBar). It will add screens for “What’s New” in the PlayStation Store, and recently played games on the XMB.
The price of the 80 GB PS3 is now $299, and the 160 GB version is $399 because…
The newest PS3 is to be in stores September 1 for $299 with a 120 GB hard drive. Per Sony, “…users will not be able to install other Operating Systems to the new PS3 system”.
Some upcoming new titles (from SCE Worldwide Studios) are:
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
God of War 3
and Gran Turismo 5.
For those of you still waiting to get your hands on Nintendo’s little Wii, this coming Sunday may be the day you get lucky. According to an inside source at Best Buy – a surreptitious hero for nerds everywhere – the nationwide retailer will have no less than 12 Wii systems per store that day.
According to a videogame journalist at Gamernode.com, those units will sell out faster than Bruce Springsteen’s last concert in New York City. I recommend getting to your local Best Buy EARLY. Bring a chair, some food, and a handheld gaming system, because you may have to wait for a while if you want to be among the first dozen at the door.
If you want to thank someone for this tip, well, you can’t. He has chosen, in true superhero fashion, to fade away into the night after.
