Journey

Short doesn’t necessarily mean inferior. Journey is gorgeous, impactful and easily the best experience I’ve had so far this year.

PlayStation Video Unlimited

This is the new PlayStation Video Unlimited service. This PlayStation app runs at a full 60 frames per second (when you see it on a PS3), has tons of 3D graphics effects, full-speed 1080p video playback, and a fluid, hardware accelerated, animated user experience. What you may not know is that this is a web app.

It uses the Trilithium platform, whose APIs allow access to the PS3 hardware (CPU cores, GPU, video playback engine etc.) via JavaScript.

Doug Lombardi on PS3 Portal 2, Steam on 360

A short but sweet article by Ars Technica.

Now that Steam is running on the PlayStation 3, the service may be added to other games as well as Portal 2, but Lombardi refuses to give any specific news. “We are hoping other titles will benefit from the Steamworks tools and services we’ve created for Portal 2 PS3, but we don’t have anything to announce today.”

PS3s to lose Linux support

The next system software update for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system will be released on April 1, 2010 (JST), and will disable the “Install Other OS” feature that was available on the PS3 systems prior to the current slimmer models, launched in September 2009.

It’s not often that console features are removed via software patches.
