With new firmwares on PSP and PS3 ALL PS1 games are now playable!

Unfortunately I'm stuck in my office at work and can't test this theory... but it has been said on the Playstation boards that I was browsing today after reading the firmware update info (PS3 Firmware update 2.10) that someone discovered that ALL of the downloadable PS1 games (like Twisted Metal and the like) are now accessable via remote play on the PSP (with firmware 3.80)! The RUMOR is that there are some parts built into the new remote play that allow you to play ALL PS1 Original Disc games in your PS3 with remote play also but we at BlueAlien.org have not gotten a chance to test this theory yet.

GameStop Announces Holiday Wii Reservation Program

The following is a press release from GameStop's corporate headquarters regarding the shortages of Wii's this holiday season. The idea is that ANYONE AND EVERYONE that reserves a Wii on Friday December 21, 2007 will be guaranteed a Wii by January 25, 2008. Nintendo is working with GameStop to make sure they are able to meet the demand with ample amounts of supply but I worry this time both companies may have bitten off more than they can chew… Regardless of my pessimism it’s a great way to keep kids happy this holiday season and to get Nintendo’s holiday numbers as far in the black as they can be. Now they just have to make good on all those reserves… Read the full press release from GameStop here.

Possible Dreamcast 2 coming?

The Dreamcast was a great console. It was released on a cool date in the US, 9/9/99, and even though one hasn't been produced since 2001, it still has a devote fan base. Too bad Sega stopped developing consoles... or have they?
