A 12GB Playstation 3 has been around since it was announced at Gamescom last year, the model was exclusive to Europe and Asia up till now. The 12GB Playstation 3 allows the console to start at a much lower price and target a new audience that will mainly use the device as a media hub and use services like Netflix, Hulu, Youtube etc. Of course it has all the normal playstation 3 features so you can always buy the disk based version of a few games without worrying about storage issues.
The 12GB Playstation 3 is based on flash storage which has it’s advantages and disadvantages, flash storage is much faster than a standard hard drive and will allow quicker file transfers etc. Then the disadvantage would be the fact you can’t replace the flash storage so you will be stuck with 12GB onboard space. But it’s all good because this Playstation 3 allows you to use external drives to expand the storage if you need to.
This Playstation 3 model is being rolled out in america right now and will be available in local stores and online in the next few weeks.
Ubisoft has revealed a new gameplay series for Watch dogs, Each episode will explain aspects of the game. This episode explains how hacking works in the game and why doing certain tasks can help you, More episodes will come in the future but first enjoy part 1 above.
Microsoft has announced the Kinect no longer has to be plugged in at all times for the Xbox One to work. Of course they did say some features will no longer work when the Kinect is un-plugged, for example you can no longer do voice navigation through the OS and you can no longer do motion movements to navigate through the OS and on games.
A Microsoft spokesman had this to say, “Games use Kinect in a variety of amazing ways, from adding voice to control your squad mates, to adding lean and other simple controls beyond the controller, to full immersive gameplay,” he says. “That said, like online, the console will still function if Kinect isn’t plugged in, although you won’t be able to use any feature or experience that explicitly uses the sensor.”
Microsoft has also announced the Xbox One will support Xbox 360 friends, this means you can view who’s online, achievement information and what they are playing etc. But the downside is Microsoft said it’s not possible to communicate via Voice/Video chat with people on the older Xbox 360, you can still text chat but voice chatting and playing on the same game together is not possible.
