Random new news about the PSTree

Today Sony had a convention called Gamer's Day, and they announced a bunch of announcements (or.. whatever).

First of all, they announced that most of the EA sports games will use the tilt controls, as will Tony Hawk 8. Much better then the originally announced one. Thumbs up there.

Sony also confirmed that certain PSP, PS2, and PS1 games will be up for download on the PS3. That's sort of awesome but I really think they could have skipped the PS2 ones since most people will still own the games. It is good news though for PSP-less people, since you'll now get around to the few good games the PSP's had.

Also announced were the prices of many things. The HDMI cable will be $50 (pretty expensive), the PS2 memory card adapter will be $15, the Sixaxis controllers will be $50 (same as the 360 ones), and the Blu-Ray remotes will be $30.

Also, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby will be packaged in the first 500,000 consoles in Blu-Ray format. No one really knows why they picked that movie..

Last but not least is the announcement of their 37% cut estimate of profits this year, from 1.1 million to 670 million. I can't say I'm surprised, if they're going to get it back it's going to be 07', no way they were going to make that much this year.
