  • Andy B: Hi Wiz, I have tried to make a donation using my UK bank account but PayPal will not accept the card as I live in NZ and have a UK card? This is not your problem but is there a way I can just pay directly with a Visa card?

  • Wizzo: GPW will be down from approximately 13:30 tomorrow until the migration to the new server is complete. Once the site is "live" on the new server it could take another 24-48 hours to become accessible to all users.

PS3 Launch 15th March 06!!!!!!!
« on: March 15, 2006, 12:11:14 AM »
Set your alarm for an early start tomorrow morning – my Sony spies have confirmed the PS3’s revised launch schedule will be announced at 6am GMT.

The news follows mounting speculation on the web that Sony Japan would be divulging details on the biggest gadget launch of the year at its global conference, and all but confirms that the PS3’s original spring launch won’t be happening.

Sony has apparently been struggling to prepare the various ingredients of the PS3 recipe – most notably the processor and Blu-Ray capability – and a big US games retailer set a pre-release date of 1st October for the console’s launch games.


The lucky beggars in Japan will get their PS3 launch shortly after the E3 show in May, followed by an October US launch and then, fingers tightly crossed, a UK bow in November.

Check back tomorrow and I will try and post the full news for you all.

Update: the PS3 will hit shops 'early' November. Sony's folks say the new high-def console will definitely support the 50GB dual layer version of Blu-Ray as well as the standard 25GB single layer versions. Which is good news if HD movies on Blu-Ray take off on a big way.

Excitingly, Sony also revealed the final missing info on the next Playstation:

The hard drive will be a monster 60GB job - the same as the top iPod and more than three times the capacity of Microsoft's Xbox 360
It'll definitely play all old PSOne and PS2 games. Phew!
There'll be what Sony's calling a 'home server' feature. There are no further details, but I take that to mean streaming music, videos and photos from PCs, PSPs and other PS3s. It's also a given that you'll be able to connect up Sony Walkmans, Cybershots and - probably, considering the console has Bluetooth - Sony Eric phones such as the P990i.
The OS running things is Linux.

Can't wait!  8)
