Fan-tastic Friday: May 11 edition

Daxter

Waiting for your 15 minutes of fame? Wait no longer as now's your chance!
We're introducing a new weekly feature to PS3 Fanboy. It's entitled Fan-tastic Fridays and it's your chance to shine... send us your artwork, videos, poems or anything else dedicated to all things PS3 (ok, maybe we don't really want your poems... seriously, don't send any poems).

Our sister-site, PSP Fanboy, has been privileged to display some amazing art in a similar fashion (see above). It's our goal to put those amateurs in their place and show them who is boss. Send your original artwork, video clips or poems creative essays to . We'll select the best submissions each week and give the most creative entries their 15 minutes right here on PS3 Fanboy.

You never know who is watching. I have it on good authority that Sony monitors these posts...

Good luck... and God speed.

poll police

It's already time for another weekly poll. Okay, well maybe we actually had more than one this week, but we are getting on an official schedule now! Thursday will be the day, so watch out for the Poll Police each week and be sure to cast your vote!

Today's poll question is an easy one, but we had such a tremendous response to the "how many PS3 games do you own?" we had to ask "how many Blu-ray movies do you own?"

I've only collected about five so far, but with so many new releases hitting each week, I know the library is going to be growing ! Let us know how many you've got!

We'll share the results with you next Wednesday. Don't forget to vote!

Poll Results: Who would you like to see take over Sony's PlayStation unit?

poll results

Earlier this week, we ran our second PS3 poll and asked the question: Who would you like to see take over Sony's PlayStation business?

I loved this poll question and was really looking forward to your responses. So, without further ado... a whopping 2% of PS3 Fanboys voted for... me, Ed Stasick. Okay, so it was really neck-and-neck between Steve Jobs and Kaz Hurai with Jobs having a slight edge (36% of the votes versus 32% for Hurai).

Stay tuned for the PS3 Poll Police later today... and your new weekly poll!

It's a big job! Who can fill Kenny's shoes the best?

Be sure to cast your vote!

Poll Results: How many PS3 games do you own?

poll results

Last week we debuted PS3 Poll Police, our new weekly poll for PS3 Fanboys. We asked the simple question: How many PS3 games do you own? And, wow, what a response! Giving American Idol a run for it's money, we had a tremendous voter turnout... 3,550 votes and counting!

As you see, most of you (27%) own 3-4 PS3 games. And another 21% own two. For you math whizzes out there, that means that nearly half of us have 2-4 PS3 games in our collection. That's not bad for a console that's been out just a few months. Of course, the vote is a bit skewed by those 18% of voters that still think the Xbox rulz...

Stay tuned for the PS3 Poll Police tomorrow... and your new weekly poll! This one promises to be fun.

PSM previews Haze

Haze

One of our favorite rags, PSM: Independent PlayStation Magazine, has a world-premiere super-exclusive in their next issue. It's our first real peek at Haze, the FPS thats "poised to take over PS3" later this year.

According to the lucky fools at PSM:

· The main premise of the game is a war in Central South America that involves large corporations with an large weapons R&D budgets. Then something goes horribly wrong...

· "The prized product that the biomedical research and enhancements division produces is a substance known as Nectar that, when injected, makes soldiers better fighters."

· "Due to the realistic high dynamic range lighting in Haze, it's very easy for enemies to disappear into the shadows, particularly in outdoor levels and at night. A shot of Nectar will pull them into the foreground in a halo of light."

The magazine promises more (and hopefully more substantial) information next week when the June issue hits stands.

Stop what you are doing! Re-live the madness! This is Living!

It's been a day of videos at PS3 fanboy. But here's one you don't want to miss. You might remember our jaw-dropping introduction to the full "This is Living" mini-movie a couple of weeks ago. Simply put, this video is... awesome! So awesome in fact, that it was pulled from YuTube in mere minutes for "gross violations of YouTube policy." Many Xbox fanboys would go on to add that Sony had cossed the lines of "common decency" and had "warped their simple little minds." I'm here to say that every word of that is true. If you are under seventeen years of age, I beg you to turn away now!

Click here for the pure, simple bliss of "This is Living". Select the "whole thing" once you're there.

[Edit: Damn you, Sony! They've even edited this one down from the original. But it still has it's moments.]

Kutaragi: "You can pry the PlayStation from my cold, dead hands!"

Kenny KOK, maybe it's not a serious as all that "cold, dead hands" stuff, but it's clear that ousted retired PlayStation chief, Ken Kutaragi, will be a part of the PlayStation world for some time to come. Krazy Kenny K is just down, but he's not out! The main man behind all things PlayStation is working to ensure that his "master plan" gets executed... one way or another.

According to an interview with EE Times, Kutaragi stated that: "As a matter of course, I have the vision of PS4, 5 and 6, which will merge into the network. Now I'm ready to start working with a much wider world."

Wow, for consoles with a minimum 10-year lifecycle, we'll be living with the ramifications of Kenny's "PS3 through PS6" vision until most of us are... dead. Here's to hoping that advances in gene-therapy will keep us all alive long enough to experience Ken's PlayStation end-game. I can't wait. Of course, the SIXAXIS will have destroyed us all by then.

New Harry Potter screens put the PS2 back in the PS3



With a new movie and a new book hitting this Summer, Harry Potter mania is in full swing. Taking advantage of that momentum, EA released 3 new screens to the muggle world today, including one from the game's climatic battle with "he who must not be named." While we were mildly excited by the trailer, our hope has been dashed by screens that look like they're from a mediocre PS2 release (at best). Of course, EA knows that they don't have to put their best foot forward here... anything with the Harry Potter label is going to sell well.

Behind the scenes of PlayStation Eye

eye

Newsweek
, always known for their hard-hitting interviews, tackles a tough Q&A with Dr. Richard Marks regarding Sony's EyeToy 2.0. The bottom-line? The new PlayStation Eye rocks. Hard. Here are the important details:
  • It's not the "eye," but the "ear" that truly differentiates the new device. The hands-free voice input may be the single most important feature of Playstation Eye.
  • The camera works in extremely low light. Tests showed that just the illumination of a flat-screen monitor was enough to illuminate image subjects.
  • The device supports both 640 x 480 resolution at 60 frames per second and 320 x 240 resolution at 120 frames per second.
  • Playstation Eye was designed to mirror the cost structure of the original EyeToy. Translation: you should be able to afford this.
There's lots more info in the excellent and full article over at Newsweek. Sign us up for one of those badboys! Especially after seeing it in action.

The SIXAXIS robot spells certain doom...


It's only a matter of time before the PS3 pulls a Skynet on us. With millions of PS3 networked together, we're only months away from Folding@Home becoming self-aware, bringing an end to civilization as we know it. That's when SIXAXIS robots will walk the earth, destroying everything in their path. Want proof? Watch the video above! Very cool ... well except for that whole end of the human race part.
