What's Up? - by Kodess
Category: Website on Thursday October 16, 2008

Yeah it's not really fair to keep you guys out of the mail ring....
But hey, some people in our own team don't even know about the updates:O:P

So I'll give you guys an update, no not about firmware 5.00 about the website.

So P-SPot 2.0, what is it?
How It Started
When we (Borg and me) started P-SPot we wanted to make a website that was easily accessible via the PSP, and we started making it and had around 100 visitors. Then I made a few updates to the website and Borg posted it on the QJ Forums, and that's when all hell broke loose!
Hell broke loose!
We suddenly needed to go from free hosting, to paid hosting to be able to stay up all the time, and we had a difficult time keeping the website updated. We started hiring some more people, Goatje, Toby, Crytek and Garethlye. Goatje would help me with the programming, and the other 3 would help moderate and post news. Now this is a pretty good basic system but it wasn't enough to stop us from slowing down. So we thought it's time to go to 2.0!
2.0
2.0 means that the users get to contribute as well! This makes our jobs easier (less updating, making more new features), and creates a good community. This is where we are now! I am currently working on the 2.0 project and am about half-way through, so I'd say that's pretty good :D
Enough bullsh¡t, that's all I had to say, trying to give you guys an update.

If you came through all the way, thank you, and we're almost there!

PSP-3000 Firmware Changes - by garethlye
Category: General on Friday October 3, 2008

PSP-3000 Firmware Changes

Sony’s revamped beauty, the soon to be released PSP-3000, packs a new set of configurable options in the firmware. Yup, we have it verbatim — over at IGN, via Famitsu.com — they’ve detailed the discovered changes. But first — the visual comparison…




The PSP-3000 has a setting for “Color Space” under the system settings section of the XMB. This can be switched between Wide and Normal. Wide exploits the full color depth of the revised hardware, while Normal returns you back to PSP-2000 level color.

The 3000 firmware has an option for Automatic USB Connection. When this is switched on, the PSP switches to USB mode automatically when a USB device is connected.

Finally, the 3000 firmware offers a noise reduction feature for video out. This is used to cut the noise when outputting the PSP’s video signal to a television.

And while we’re on the subject of firmware changes; Sony Japan announced come fall we’ll be able to download games/demos, amongst other goodies, direct from the PSN store. That means no need for a PC or PS3. This update will be available for all PSP models.

Rumour: PSP Firmware 5.0 (Beta) Available for Developers - by garethlye
Category: General on Friday October 3, 2008

Rumour: PSP Firmware 5.0 (Beta) Available for Developers

According to the fine folks over at pspgen, Sony has issued firmware version 5.0 beta to legitimate PSP developers. This will of course allow commercial developers to adapt and ready their games for the next major firmware revision. Per the moment, the details are somewhat scarce…

For starters, pspgen reports firmware 5.0 will include these three updates:

1. Direct access to the PlayStation Store
2. A new RSS reader
3. An integrated “snapshot” tool; similar to FuSa screenShoot (?)

And that’s all we know for now… With respect to a release date, that also remains unknown. It’s speculated to hit around October with the release of the PSP-3000. Whatever the case, I certainly hope 5.0 sports a little more bang than those 3 specifics.

New Dissidia, Kingdom Hearts screenshots

NeoGAF member KurowaSan has put up a few screenshots from Square Enix's upcoming titles in the Kingdom Hearts series as well as Dissidia: Final Fantasy, the action title that sees well-known Final Fantasy characters duking it out with each other.

You may have caught a glimpse of some of the screenshots below in the Famitsu mag scans we post from time to time, but the quality here is much better. That's why we thought they warranted another look.

The PSP's Dissidia: Final Fantasy are all slated for release later this year. Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep for the PSP is the odd one out with a 2009 release date.

It's gonna be a Sony-Nintendo tie, says former Sony boss on console race

A lot of predictions have been thrown our way as to how this leg of the console race will end. But this one isn't from industry analysts, this time. Rather, it's from one that was formerly in the know as a Sony top executive. For him, we'll know who wins the race by 2011, and it's gonna be a tie.
