Diablo 3 to Arrive in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (0)

Something exciting will arrive in your Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 before they are replaced with newer, more modern consoles. Blizzard has confirmed that Diablo 3, the world's fastest-selling PC game, would be available on these two consoles starting this fall. Owners of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 would be able to enjoy the full Diablo 3 experience, but without the keyboard-smashing moments as the game is tailored for "gamepad-driver action." The game can accept up to four players and host it either on the same screen or online. "Playing Diablo III on a big screen with your friends brings a whole new level of intensity to the game," said Blizzard's CEO Mike Morhaime in a statement. "And with all of the control and interface adaptations we've made, it's extremely fun to play on PS3 and Xbox 360." Morhaime added that the console version would include "major content and design updates" they have made on the PC version of Diablo 3 since last year, as well as some "fine-tuning" that would set it apart from the popular PC time waster. One of the features from the PC version that allegedly would be removed from the console version is the much-dreaded "Real Money Auction House," where high-level items are being offered at as high as $250 worth of in-game gold, which players purchase using their credit cards. Diablo 3 for consoles will retail for $59.99, with both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will drop simultaneously on September 3. Source: Neoseeker Read More

70 Million PlayStation 3 Units Sold in Six Years (1)

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that 70 million units of its PlayStation 3 were sold cumulatively as of November 4th, a few days shy of the gaming console's sixth anniversary. In comparison, rival Xbox 360 from Microsoft achieved the 70 million cumulative sales mark back in September. Considering that the device was release about a year before the PS3, it took the Xbox 360 longer to clock up sales. Meanwhile, the Nintendo Wii (launched in 2006) remains the leader in console sales, achieving worldwide sales of 97.18 million units as of end of September 2012. Sony has also announced that global cumulative sales of PlayStation Move motion-based controller, its answer to the Microsoft Kinect and Nintendo Wii Remote, passed the 15 million unit mark on November 11. Launched in September 2010, the Move is now compatible to over 400 titles. Also, software titles fo PS3 has reached 3,590 with over 595 million units sold all over the world.

Playstation 3 Shipments Seized in Europe After Legal Dispute with LG (1)

Sony and LG have been suing one another over claims of patent infringements and it seems the Korean electronics manufacturer gains an upper hand after European customs officers have been ordered to seize shipments of Playstation 3. This comes after LG won a preliminary injunction against Sony. The Civil Court of Justice in the Hague, Netherlands, has ruled out that all new PS3s that are being imported into the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe for at least 10 days have to be confiscated. An extension of the injunction could mean the popular console disappearing from retail shelves. So far, tens of thousands of PS3s were seized in the Netherlands. The dispute centers on Sony's alleged infringement on the use of LG's Blu-ray technology. The Japanese electronics giant is trying to file an appeal to the European Patents Office as of this writing, hoping that the ban would be lifted in the soonest possible time. Meanwhile, LG could apply to the same office to get the 10-day import ban extended. The company could even apply for a court order to get the consoles destroyed. The two companies are involved in seven separate patent disputes. Sony is also seeking to block shipments of LG smartphones to the United States.

PlayStation 3 Motion Controller Formally Introduced as Move (0)

Sony Entertainment unveils its motion controller named More for the PlayStation 3 during this year's GDC, not Gem or Arc as previously posted.  There are actually two types, one with the familiar ball on top and nunchuk-like controller without the ball at the tip.  The two controllers can even be used simultenously, much like the Wiimote and nunchuk controller on the Nintendo Wii.  Latency is said to be under one frame, or probably around 30 microseconds.  So expect several demonstrations in the next coming days on how the Sony Move would incorporate motion to upcoming games.  Sony is said to be aiming for a US$100 starter kit, but we'll see if that materializes.
