Gamed.nl: "One of our members went along Gamed Saturn in Antwerp and got remarkable information on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Note: This is purely rumor, but we wanted it you do not remember"
Just so you know, Saturn is one of the biggest shops (informatica, electronica...)in Europe.
thnks for the info milo looking mad Corny on that picture. I dont like him.
Milo is creepy looking.
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.
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 :\
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.
^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.
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.
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.
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.
Do you even know what heavy rain is? Why are you comparing it to Milo?
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.
...one of the children from Village of the Damned.
It's still selling well.
The PS3 is in a decline and it's still in last place with console sales and attach rate. This is the worst year for the PS3 and it's still going downhill, and Sony is getting heat from the worlds largest third part publisher. Get used to wearing this VVVV Looks good on you

i believe ars mole way more,he never got anything wrong so far.
PS3 is going to widen the gap this holiday season over Xbox 360! The gap should be down to 4-5 million by 2010 now.
Good job bot, you just make no sense at all. Hm, somethings just don't change.
Its not like Sony to release just a smaller SKU.even the ps2 slim had the online adapter built in,as apposed to the bigger older ps2s.btw, guys,why do you comment before the stories get approved?
you'd think after the 6000th time sony has said there is no price drop coming and the fact that sony looses $40 on each console sold that people would get it through their thick thick thick head's that there will be no price drop anytime soon, and next weeks headline : "the gaming insider and all round douche patcher confirms sony will release a blu ray less ps3 slim with backwards compatability and a built in waffle maker and it will retail at $200" sony fanboys high five each other and have another slice of fairy bread
Saturn is only a retailer like GameStop, the only difference is that they are not game-only but more like electronics-only retailers. Despite its plausibility, it really shouldn't be considered too seriously.
Yum! A waffle maker :p I just gotta me that one.I have a bc less ps3,might just pick that model up cuz my ps2 broke
I'm not sure if that article is exactly accurate...
no advertise, not much of any activity. and Milo is creepy.
I don't even know what that was.
You heard it here first! PS3 will be... free?
LMAO I hate translated sites.
Sony will announce a price drop i'm sure of it right now there trying to keep a price drop a secret they'll just say no to it but TGS 2009 Sony will drop the price for there best holiday season with games of multiple genre Uncharted 2 , MAG , Rachet & Clank ACiT , Demon's Souls & Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Sony will drop price this year i'm sure of it
why on earth keep a price drop a secret, tell everyone now so they can start saving up. only a sony fanboy would use a pathetic excuse as "just wait" T_T
And only a dumbass would fail to see announcing a price drop months before it happens only serves to weaken your sales until then. :|
..Milo looks like the retarded baby of Tommy Vercetti and Laura Croft.
Well, i work @ Saturn in Brussels and we never get that kind of info. If it has been said, then it's probably some stupid dude working for Sony who said it just so they keep selling their consoles now. I don't see why a shop would get that kind of info..
So...all you people actually were able to KNOW what the fook this thing even SAID?
Strange really, but the only game that actually has characters that come to life in a game are in uncharted 1&2. http://www.gametrailers.com... So well done.
"Dnarbeis - 15 hours ago PM Track Ignore 1 - Just so you know, Saturn is one of the biggest shops (informatica, electronica...)in Europe." Yes it is. But they also have the dumbest employees ever, that just shout randomly made up stuff. Sometimes I just go into Saturn/Mediamarkt (same mothercompany as MediaMarkt) and go ask employees stuff that I know the answer on to see if they're making up stuff again. Be prepaired to get the dumbest answers ever! One time an employee told me the 360 Premium had no Dolby Digital 5.1 optical out. Another time one told me that PSN had crossgame voicechat and invites like XBL, and then there was this dude that said that the Wii could do HD if Nintendo upgraded its firmware. Go figure. Although I have to agree on the Natal launch this Christmas. I think MS will to have casuals buy the 360 instead of the Wii. Christmas is the biggest selling time you know.
Info from a Belguim site, come one. EU gets most gaming stuff last, I'll believe it when I see it.
b-b-b-b-b-but wait for a price drop
Hmmm.. Is that a deathknell i hear? Surely this rumour isn't true.
No price drop? I've been on the fence a while if SONY doesn't go 299 by September, I'm buying an xbox. I love their attitude I understand they have bottom lines to meet however, market share and price in this current climate is more important, to both consumers and companies.
lol You know what they say with them sitting on the fence to long, they get skelves in there bum lol
What do you have now? Well, I just somewhat recently got into this gen of consoles....about 6 1/2 months ago. One of the things that I discovered was the price difference between the 2 systems is really just an illusion of sorts. You need a Harddrive to have a competent XBOX, otherwise, you have an incomplete system; 299.99. Next, you'll want XBOX LIVE ($50 year), then you need a rechargeable battery pack ($20-$30). That's a minimum of $370 for an XBOX 360 and you still wouldn't have BluRay, wouldn't have WiFi, wouldn't have Blutooth connectivity (regular Keyboard and other standard peripherals), and you still would have to pay $50 each year after. long story short though, PS3 = $399.99 360 = $370.00 If you like and get an XBOX 360 that would be great for you, but the point of this post was just so that you wouldn't make the mistake of using the price objection that I see that so many people make, because basically, they are at or near the same price when all is said and done.
2010 i guess Commodore.
What happens when the pedophiles try and touch Milo?
they f*ck up their tv
Can PS3 fanboys please put this rumor to rest finally. If you already own a PS3 why do you give a f-ck if the price drops? Are you hoping that people will finally start to buy it and they will no longer be in 3rd place? Why do I care if they made it slim? I already have a PS3, so why would I buy another one because it's thinner? That's the stupidest sh-t I have ever heard. The Sony rep already said that they will NOT BEING DROPPING THE PRICE BECAUSE THEY ARE ALREADY LOSING MONEY THE WAY IT STANDS NOW
i really don't think they can increase read speed(safely) via firmware if they can a lot of drives aren't going to agree with this the ps3 isn't going to blow up until they drop the price, myself and many many other people aren't going to buy one until the price drops they are using bluray as an excuse to keep the price high, but players have recently dropped in price hard so why not ps3?
they want to start making a profit soon. they have a strong number of consoles sold already, and years to wait to drop the price. Sony expects the ps3 to last ten years, so obviously a price drop isn't so urgent to them.
Jason 360 just badly pwned Sony. Lol.
Oh yes. I can see how he owned them. Wow. That is awesome. For the people who dont read internet sarcasm so well (myself included): /sarcasm
I have news from inside microsoft and milo isnt real it was just a joke to have a laugh with us , and ps3 is having a pricedrop but im sure the cheapskates wont buy it
Because gta sucked and was dumbed down for the crapbox and milo is a fakeass alien kid
Yes, a firmware could improve loading times from the disk since there's software managing transference & dynamic caching from the disk to the HDD. So the physical spinning speed of the drive is just one factor of loading times in games; plausible.
What people don't realize is that "Blu-ray CD-ROM" is not the same as "CD-ROM", the speed of BR-CD is close to DVD.
