PSX games now available in the Android Market, if you own an Xperia Play

If you're lucky enough to own an Xperia Play -- Sony Ericsson's new Gingerbread-powered smartphone-cum-gamepad -- you can now buy PlayStation (PSX) titles from the Android Market. There are five titles currently available, all priced at £3.99: Syphon Filter, MediEvil, Cool Boarders 2, Destruction Derby, and Jumping Flash. They don't have an American price yet, but that will surely chan...

FPse PlayStation emulator debuts on the Android Market

While we wait for the official Sony-created PlayStation emulator to hit the Android platform, one of the best mobile PlayStation emulators, FPSeCe, has made the jump from Windows Mobile to Android. Available for just under $5, and having dropped the CE (for Windows CE), FPse brings another PSOne emulation option to your Android smartphone. It's able to take ISO backups from your PSOne discs, so...

Sony announces PlayStation Suite Android gaming store for Gingerbread devices

At an event in Tokyo, Sony has just unveiled its plans to introduce an Android gaming store called PlayStation Suite. More than just a store for an Android-based PlayStation Phone, or the newly announced PSP2, the PS Suite will be 'hardware-neutral' and offer games for any Android phones or tablets running at least Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Of course your average Android device doesn't come packin...

Official PlayStation iPhone app launches in Europe

We heard it was coming, but now it's here -- the Official PlayStation iPhone app is now available. Essentially a gateway to the PSN, the app allows you to "take the incredible world of PlayStation everywhere you go." Sounds promising, but you might be disappointed to know that all it allows you to do is check your trophies and the current online status of your friends -- there's no PSN chat for i...

Sony bringing official PlayStation app to iPhone and Android

Over in Europe, PlayStation fans are getting a treat in the form of mobile apps for iPhone and Android. No, the app won't turn your phone into a PSP, but it does sync up with your PlayStation Network account, which allows you to check trophies and see which of your friends are online. It also loads up announcements about new PlayStation titles. Predictably, there's also social networking, so you ...

Fat32Formatter easily prepares external hard drives for use with your PS3

Setting up a new external hard drive for use with your PlayStation 3 should be a simple task. Maybe, however, when you plugged the drive into your Windows system and attempted to right-click and format it you only had two options: NTFS and exFAT, neither of which plays nice with your PlayStation. While you could use diskpart to take care of things, not everyone enjoys command-line tinkering. A...

Hulu Plus goes invite-free, comes to PlayStation 3, Sony TVs and Blu-Ray players

Hulu has announced that it will start making its Hulu Plus subscription service available to anyone who wants to try it, removing the previously existing barrier of needing an invitation to subscribe. Hulu has also revealed that its service is now available on all 2010 Sony Bravia HDTVs, with more Sony connected devices -- including Blu-Ray players -- to get access soon. Last, but definitely...

LoveFilm to bring Netflix-like video-on-demand to PlayStation 3 owners in the UK

We heard rumors earlier this week, but now it's official - LoveFilm, like its US counterpart Netflix, is taking its online streaming into UK living rooms via the PS3. This is big news for the UK's largest movie rental service and great news for British PS3 owners, who up until now, have been stuck with pricey PlayStation Store media rentals. Details are a bit thin on the ground at the moment; ...

Jailbreak your PlayStation 3 with your Android phone (or TI-84 calculator...)

Over the past week, a lot has changed in the PS3 modding and hacking community. In just a few short days, the PS3 has shifted from almost-impossible-to-hack to become both the easiest and cheapest console to jailbreak. All you need is a USB memory stick and some open-source code -- or an Android phone or TI-84 calculator. I should warn you that Sony has just released a firmware fix that renders...

Sony Ericsson to release PSP-like Android smartphone (it has a slide-out game pad!!)

Forget emulation, gentlemen, because Sony Ericsson is finally bringing us a PlayStation phone! Engadget has the scoop, and Sir Topolsky seems confident that this is more than just a rumor -- we might even see this portable-gaming-cum-smartphone as soon as October! If you hadn't realised yet, the image above is a mock-up of what Engadget thinks the phone will look like. We know that it will hav...

PSX4droid brings thousands of emulated PlayStation games to your Android phone

Earlier this week I reviewed NESoid, a tidy little Android app that lets you play the vast library of NES games on your smartphone. It's no surprise that my 600MHz smartphone can emulate the NES's 8-bit 1.8MHz (really!) processor -- but boy was I shocked when I installed PSX4droid and found I could (almost) play Final Fantasy VII on my phone. Note: just like the NES emulator, it's almost point...

Pinnacle Game Profiler: review and give-away

Pinnacle Game Profiler (PGP) is, in essence, the best game controller programming software in the world. For that statement to make any sense, I should explain what controller programming is: basically, PGP maps commands and functions to the buttons of your controller. That controller can be an Xbox 360 or PlayStation pad, a Wiimote, a Sidewinder or steering wheel -- it doesn't matter: as long ...

Introduction to PSP Homebrew

The Playstation Portable is a jack of all trades. It plays music, videos, browses the Internet, and plays games. However, for an increasing number of people, this still isn't enough. With its powerful dual-processor configuration and Memory Stick Pro Duo slot, the PSP is a pocket powerhouse, capable of much more than just gaming and multimedia. This is where the homebrew community comes in. With...

Top 5 emulators for Windows Mobile - Mobile Minute

In the last two Mobile Minutes we've focused on productivity tips: How to sync your PDA with Thunderbird, and replacements for the built in file explorer. But we all know the real reason you lug a tiny computer around with you isn't to keep your contacts and appointments within arm's reach. It's for playing games in board meetings. With that, we bring you Download Squad's top 5 emulators for Windo...

Download Squad welcomes PS3 Fanboy to the family

Keen readers may have noticed the little dogear up in the corner linking to Weblogs, Inc.'s newest blog, PS3 Fanboy. You may think we have our obsessions here at Download Squad, but you haven't seen obsession until you visit the fanboys (and girls!) over there. They couldn't be more excited about Sony's Playstation 3, and if your enthusiasms run along the same lines, do yourself a favor and check...
