Sony at one point announced that the PlayStation 3 would double as a home networking router. Well, no more. In the first major feature cut, Sony said the functionality would have driven up the price of the console too much. It's speculation, but what are the chances that this means Sony is working out a way to shave down the anticipated (though not officially announced) $399 launch price? Sony did reveal that SACD support is in, if you're into the audiophile music format... Anticipating Call of Cthulhu: Destiny's End or tie-in titles City of the Dead and Jackie Chan Adventures? You're going to have to wait a bit longer than expected now that developer Hip Interactive has filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada. If the games are any good, they should find a new home - heck, you may recall that Acclaim's Juiced found a publisher... Likewise, if you were looking forward to Far Cry: Instincts for the PS2, it's been canceled. Then again, Microsoft never has gotten the hang of third-party console exclusives, so you can probably just push out the PS2 version's release date by about six months from the Xbox release...
