Just so you know, Saturn is one of the biggest shops (informatica, electronica...)in Europe.

Well, just wait until he gets access to your bank accounts and medical records after you've been handing him picks of peni and bung holes...

Looks like some weird alien offspring from that chick from the Heavy Rain videos, the one where she is being interviewed and they tried to make it look real but comes off as some mutant.

DevastationEve3604d ago (Edited 3604d ago )

I agree, Heavy Rain's lady just irks me with how hard they try to make her realistic. And I got the same feeling when looking at Milo, though thankfully Milo isn't going to be real.

Unfortunately that means we'll still be meeting that chick for some much needed next gen bathroom pampering come next year :(

This isn't me bashing a console, this is me hoping that this niche genre gets met with hostile opposition. I just can't bare the idea of a human/life simulation game. There ARE boundaries people :\

poindat3604d ago

Uh, not exactly sure what you're going on about, but there already is a life simulation game, and it happens to be one of the most popular game series ever made... it's called The Sims.

And Heavy Rain is far from a life simulation...

Why would you want a niche genre to fail anyway? Without them we'd have the same old same old over and over again.

You don't say?

How is that "leaked" information?
The PS3 is "aggressively" bundling good games/it's best sellers/high interest games. That's their plan.

If you know anyone waiting on a price cut this year you might want to inform them on the deals that currently exist that soften the blow of a $400 gaming console. Ya know, since sony can't market for themselves.

I wonder if they mean to say that a firmware update will increase the read speed of blu-ray disc. Is that even possible through firmware?
Natal this year makes a little more sense seeing how M$ has been whoring it out to every publication since E3.

Finalfantasykid3604d ago

^I don't think so. Unless the disc drive is actually capable of going faster, and at the moment it is just running at half the speed(which I don't think it is), then a firmware might be able to unlock higher speeds. Just like one of the PSP's firmwares allowed the CPU to go up to 333MHz, instead of the previous downclocked 222MHz. But I doubt this is the case. I'm sure the PS3's disc drive is going at the maximum speed that the hardware supports.

SL1M DADDY3603d ago

Where it says - "In August, a new firmware update for the PlayStation. A striking feature is reserved for the Blu-Ray functionality, this will be read by Blu-Ray's increase, which was again the fastest in the industry. "

Can't wait to see what the next update has to bring. It's amazing how many great updates this machine gets and how with a simple update it's functionality increases. And it looks like they are tooting the BD horn a bit by giving them props for selling as fast as they are.

Christopher3603d ago

Firmware would be able to increase read speeds. If the hardware is being held back due to software, then it's not an issue. But, if it's the hardware that's limited the read speed, I don't see the point in making it faster since it will just erode the hardware faster.

DevastationEve3603d ago

Yeah but we can all agree that The Sims isn't about hyper realistic characters. It's just a bunch of 3d models and AI behavior programmed with a bunch of rules of interaction and so forth. It's nowhere near what Heavy Rain and Milo have shown us as far as realism, let alone anywhere near what Milo had promised in its tech demo presentation.

velaxun3603d ago

Do you even know what heavy rain is? Why are you comparing it to Milo?

hermie3603d ago

It's a console wars thing.

wow.....
thanks for this great reliable news, sorry rumours - all so new and worthy of posting on N4G for sure.

There are several categories that these submissions can be submitted under. Rumor is one of them so take it for what it is worth.

everythings sounds plausible, though not sure if a firmware update is or will be able to increase the reading speed of a blu-ray or any dvd player.
