PSP Sours

PSP Sours

We frankly want these PSP Sours simply for the PSP-shaped cool metal tin; they’ll come in blue screen (raspberry) or red screen (cherry) and can be preordered by the dozen for $32.

Sony CMT-Z100iR

Sony CMT-Z100iR

Because nothing says modern like a black monolith: Sony’s CMT-Z100iR micro audio system includes an iPod dock, CD player, and USB port; music is outputted via two 20W speakers.

With 9MP of 20x zoom goodness, a 3″ tilt screen and 1080p video, Sony’s DSC-HX1 gives other point-and-shoots a run for their money; also: Sweep Panorama for 7152×1080 images.

Sony Portable Fuel Cells

Sony recently showed off portable fuel cells which charge devices via a USB port; it’s a hybrid system that uses a methanol fuel cell with Li-ion battery for storage and backup power.

Concept: Sony Simplicity

Concept: Sony Simplicity

Cellphones with minimal features tend to get short shrift design-wise, but this Sony Simplicity concept is lustworthy with its wrap-around display; it has no SMS, camera, or email.

Sony’s Cybershot H20 is a budget-friendly ultrazoom, coming in at under $300 for a Carl Zeiss 10x optical zoom lens, 10MP sensor, 3″ LCD screen and 720P HD recording.

Sony XB Headphones

Sony XB Headphones

Short for “Extra Bass”, Sony’s XB Series headphones pound out ultra-low bass beats; chose between three closed-ear models (XB700, 500, 300) and two in-ear versions (XB20EX, 40EX).

Sony MDR-EX36SC Earbuds

Sony MDR-EX36SC Earbuds

While we question their quality, Sony’s Japan-only MDR-EX36SC earbuds use convergence on a small scale: the protective case actually doubles as a passive speaker.

Sony LBT-ZX66i

Sony LBT-ZX66i

Boomboxes are alive and well with Sony’s “Muteki” LBT-ZX66i; made for iPods, it features two three-way bass reflex speakers with a 7″ sub and 1″ tweeter, good for 560 watts.

Sony HDR Camcorders

Sony X-Series Walkman

Sony X-Series Walkman

Sony’s Walkman NWZ-X1000 may yet be a viable iPod Touch competitor: available in 16GB and 32GB flavors, it sports a 3″ touch AMOLED screen, Wi-Fi and digital noise cancellation.

Sony Vaio P

Sony Vaio P

The prodigal anti-netbook, Sony’s Vaio P gets a narrow form factor for easy pocketability; it’s equipped with an 8″ 1600×768 LED screen, built-in 3G, 802.11n and weighs 1.4 lbs.

With countless carpal tunnel and Nintendinitis casualties, Supermandolini’s Console Wars Veterans medals give credit to our valiant fallen digital Nintendo and PlayStation warriors.

Sony DR-BT160 Headphones

Sony DR-BT160 Headphones

Wire haters should check out Sony’s DR-BT160 behind the ear headphones; made for athletes, A2DP stereo bluetooth lets you listen to music while a mic lets you take phone calls.

Transparent PSP Billboards

Transparent PSP Billboards

They’re just concepts, but we love these PSP billboards painted to look transparent; Spidey and the errant TIE fighter look great, but there’s no topping that rooftop sniper.

Sony MBS-900 Speakers

Sony MBS-900 Speakers

Large and oblong, Sony’s MBS-900 speaker doesn’t pair visually with the Sony Ericsson W705, but its built-in bluetooth lets it pair with and stream music from BT-equipped cellphones.

LBP: Gradius Recreated

It was bound to happen: PSN member RRR30000 has recreated the first level of Gradius in LBP; it’s fully playable and includes an amazingly detailed (and dangerous) boss at the end.

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

This ain’t your normal case mod: not only is this Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 fitted with carbon fiber, digital camo and a laser-cut logo, but it’s actually signed by Hideo Kojima himself.

Endwar DS/PSP

Endwar DS/PSP

Tom Clancy’s EndWar is available for nearly every platform under the sun, but we actually like the simplified DS and PSP versions most; they’re turn-based with 20 units per faction.

Concept: Sony PSP2

Concept: Sony PSP2

The paint on the PSP-3000 isn’t even dry but Tai Chiem has offered this compelling concept for the PSP2: it’s got a flexible OLED screen, two joysticks and stereo speakers on the ends.

Trailer: Patapon 2

There’s something about this Patapon 2 trailer that gets us giddy in a let’s go crazy and demolish everything way. It’s coming to the PSP in Japan in November; no word on a US release.
