PSP GO! and all-new accessories

Posted on June 8, 2009

Sony had a spot in its press-only booth area reserved for showing off the various accessories that will be available for PSP Go when it hits US shelves on October 1. There were cases, wrist straps, Sony-branded screen protectors … and wait, what was that? Since the handheld doesn’t have a standard mini USB port like the PSP-3000, we’ll have to buy all new accessories? Sad, but true.

The PSP Go has a new multifunction port on its base (check out the video!) that is used for everything from data transfer to charging to video output. While asking owners of the older model to change a USB cable is not really a big deal, the fact that more expensive existing accessories — such as component A/V cables, voice headsets and pretty much anything made to work with the 3000 — are completely incompatible is cringe-worthy. That’s not even taking into account third-party add-ons, or things like Sony’s own GPS module.

We know Sony is planning a trade-in program for UMD games; somehow we think the company won’t be extending the same offer to include cables, peripherals and other accessories.


Gran Turismo PSP

Posted on June 7, 2009

Now i remember why i wanted a PSP in the first place.
Scheduled to come Q3, probably in time for the release date of the PSP GO! The PSP just keeps on getting better and better.

Well its not a surprise that Sony would ship this baby to the US as early as possible.We heard from Sony at its E3 press conference that it won’t “replace” the PSP-3000 or UMD, it’s 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than the original PSP. All future retail titles will have retail and PlayStation store release. Japan can look for it Nov. 1 for ¥26,800. But what consumers wont probably like is that whopping $249 price tag! What the hell sony? we though you wanted more PSP sales with this new Gaming device and yet you give it a considerably big price increase?!

Sony has finally revealed the new PSP GO! and finally doing away with the UMD. I feel bad for those who has tons of UMD disks lying around their house, i only have a few of those so its ok to let them gather dust somewhere. The PSP gets redesigned, now features a sliding screen and the shoulder buttons neatly tucked behind, which making it a phone would seem or would look bad, unless newer versions would incorporate a touchscreen. So i guess Sony has considered the PSP-3000 a dud. With games such as Gran Turismo Mobile coming to the PSP this year, things are quite looking good for the PSP.

PSX eBoot Creator Tool

Posted on May 14, 2009

Impaler PSX eBoot Creator

This app was created to simplify the process of building eBoots from Playstation games. It allows the users, based on how many disks are selected, create a single or multi-disk eBoot. It also allows users to select a previous eBoot and will convert it to an ISO. Currently the only disk format that is supported is ISO. There is a link to a disk converter for download to convert BIN/IMG files to ISO.

Step 1: Select an eBoot / ISO

This selection screen allows the user to select an ISO or EBoot. If an EBoot is selected, the user will be prompted for a new name and the eBoot will be ripped back into an ISO. Then the newly created ISO will be selected. Currently the app only supports ISOs. UltraISO is available for download to convert and other images to ISOs.

Step 2: Enter an Game Title / Game Codes

Next, the user must enter a Game Title. The Game Title will be the name of the folder that is created after the application is completed. After the Title is entered, click search and a list of matches will appear. ONLY SELECT ONE code. If more than one title is selected an error is thrown.

Step 3: Select specialized boot images

Next, the user can select different images (png) for the menu. The best website that i have found is PopStation ImagePacks. After the images are downloaded, just select them.

Step 4: Create the EBoot

The last step is to click the create button, once the operation is completed. A folder is created in the results folder named like the Game Title.



It appears that High Voltage Software’s unannounced non-FPS title has been revealed, and … it’s only wearing underpants. According to a recent press release, the Conduit developer, along with D3Publisher, will be bringing Imagi Studios’ upcoming CGI-infused Astro Boy film to the Wii, PSP and PS2 — but in the form of a video game. How very clever! We’ll see how well this bold experiment pans out when the game drops this Fall, probably around the film’s October 23 release date.

The title will also be developed for the DS by Art Co. Ltd., who also adapted Coraline for D3Publisher. That doesn’t exactly fill us with confidence, but hey — it’s pretty tough to screw up “Finger Lasers, Arm Cannons, and Butt Machine Guns.”



It’s been a while since we’ve seen you on PSP, Naruto — and it looks like you’ve grown up. PSP will getting its own fighter based on the Naruto Shippuden series later this year, courtesy of Namco Bandai. According to IGN, Naruto Shippuden: Legends: Akatsuki Rising will feature a simplified control scheme that allows players to easily create “ultimate combos” with two support characters and easy-to-use Jutsu attacks. In addition to an Ad-Hoc versus mode, there will also be two-player co-op.

The story will take players through the Gaara Retrieval arc while the titular Akatsuki Mode will let you play as the Akatsuki organization. It looks like Naruto fans will have a lot to look forward to.



PixelJunk Monsters is coming to PSP and, as promised, features a ton of new content not found in the PS3 version. The handheld version of the tower defense game will include all the content of PixelJunk Monsters, Encore, and a bit more. Deluxe will add a new island with ten new stages, new enemies and new music tracks. Two new towers will be introduced into the game, which players can utilize in the classic stages and Q-Games will also challenge the PJM hardcore with a brand new boss as well.

Although PSP isn’t getting Trophy support yet, Monsters Deluxe will feature a “Medal Challenge” mode that replicates the achievement system used on the console. In addition, unlocking Medals will give players access to unlockables, such as videos, artwork and more.

Finally, PixelJunk Monsters wouldn’t be complete without a co-op mode. You’ll be able to go online in both Ad-Hoc and Infrastructure modes. Nice!


Tekken 6 on PSP is Official

Posted on May 5, 2009

US, April 28, 2009 – We already knew that Tekken 6 would be storming the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall, but today we’ve learned that the storied fighting franchise is also headed for the PSP.

Namco Bandai didn’t release many specifics, but we do know that the portable version of the game is set to release alongside the other console iterations and will pack additional stages, content, items, and an ad-hoc multiplayer mode using “original” and “fan favorite characters.” The PSP version will also have “Ghost” Infrastructure mode so that a player can upload his or her character data as well as download others’ to see how everyone’s skills stack up.

“A must-have for Tekken aficionados, Tekken 6 sees the return of many familiar faces as well as new characters to create the largest line-up the series has ever seen,” a Namco Bandai release reads. “With a growing roster of fighters, each equipped with their own deadly techniques, martial art moves, and attack combinations, Tekken 6 will be the best ‘King of Iron Fist Tournament’ yet. Adding to the already rich gaming experience, a deeper character customization feature will only enhance the incredible fighting intensity as players go mano-y-mano.”
