Is Sony Playstation 3D Monitor Landing In December?

All of you PS3 fans out there! There’s another attraction coming for you this December. At E3 2011, Sony, along with announcing PlayStation Vita, also announced a 3D LED display for PlayStation 3.

However, Sony didn’t announce the release date of this new monitor for PS3. The LED monitor is quite impressive, featuring a 24″ 3D display and will support 1080p resolution. It means that players will be able to enjoy their games in true HD. Also, the monitor will deliver 3D video.

Rumor: PlayStation Vita Will Be Arriving On October 28

The release date of Sony’s PlayStation Vita has been leaked by a Blockbuster flyer and according to the claims; the Vita (both 3G and non-3G version) will be ready for release on October 28.

The Japanese tech giant, Sony already has stated that they will release the PlayStation Vita this year. However, the unanswered questions were: where and when? Although the Vita is highly expected to be first launched in Japan (since Japan is the hardware manufacturer’s country of origin), the Vita’s birth may have another twist of fate.

Xbox 720: Release Date & Price Expectations

If you couldn’t get your hands on one of the world’s most favorite gaming console because it was too expensive, well, Microsoft has been working on that problem lately by producing cheaper gaming consoles i.e. Xbox.

The top technology developing firm wants its consumers to get their products without having to worry about their trip to Hawaii. Microsoft has always been a secretive company and only shows the world what it has been working on when it wants to. Usually it has never been on the bad side of product information leakage. Microsoft announced that they were working on a new hardware and the successor of Xbox 360.

The Futuristic PlayStation 4!

Sony Playstation 4 will be striking markets by the end of this year. Foxconn and Pegatron would be leading the assembly. Sony’s looking into the next generation hardware designs; the upcoming product would look ultramodern.

The hottest hackers’ attacks on Sony Playstation Network to hack and devastate their online gaming structure certainly will help Sony to fix the cracks in their new system.

Sony Invests $20M In Independent Games

Sony, this week, announced a three year investment to increase its PlayStation Network user base. After the devastating attacks occurred at Sony, the company is trying to figure out what they can do to give them a better edge against Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and a better foothold in the gaming industry.

This is not to say that Sony has slipped to third spot, at least not yet, but I feel that the company is trying to take preventative care before it is too late.

Windows 8 To Support Xbox 360 Games ?

A number of sites are reporting that the Xbox 360 games could be playable on the next Windows operating system, Windows 8. While not yet confirmed, it could have many implications if true. Apparently the only thing PC users will have to do is have Windows 8 and pop the Xbox 360 game into their DVD drive and that is it.

However, your PC will still need to be powerful enough to run the games. In addition, if you want to play these games online, PC players will have to buy access into an Xbox Live feature like Xbox 360 users have to.

Sony Set To Launch New PS4 In 2012
