Wii Upgrade Expands SD Memory27 March 2009 12:25:37
Expand your storage potential and start updating you system now with Version 4.0 of the Wii systems upgrade for the Nintendo Wii.
For a long time, Wii has suffered from a lack of storage space with most of its on board memory being quickly used up by WiiWare, Virtual Console and the newly announced Wii Virtual Arcade downloads, leading to seriously cramped conditions on the console.
With this in mind, Nintendo has added SDHC Card support, which will allow storage via SDHC Cards up to 32GB. This added means you can now install games to your SD card and launch WiiWare and Virtual Console games directly from it.
This extra space can only benefit Nintendo leading to more impulse buys. And with the addition of Virtual Console Arcade, space is needed more than ever.

Canon Launches the EOS 500D25 March 2009 14:25:00
Canon has launched a new addition to its line of entry-level D-SLRs with the Canon EOS 500D.
For megapixel lovers, the Canon EOS 500D comes with 15.1 of the highly detailed beauties, but actually its moving images that are drawing the most attention. This weighty snapper will shoot up to 1080p video and output footage through an HDMI port.
Other features include a 3” LCD screen, 3.4 frames per second burst shooting, 9-point auto focus and the latest DIGIC 4 processor found in many of Canon’s latest DSLRs.
Almost the only noticeable sign of EOS 500D’s entry level status is in the 1080p recording. This lingers at a less than perfect 24 frames per second. Slip it down to a still-highly viewable 720p, however, and you’ll get a healthy 30 frames per second.
The 500D takes SD and SDHC cards up to 32GB. Check out MyMemory’s range of compatible Canon 500D Memory Cards.
The Canon EOS 500D is coming this May and will cost £869.99 for the body. Kits with lenses included range from £969.99 to £1399.99. MyMemory also stocks Canon 500D Filters in our SLR Accessories store.
Sony PSP2 Says Bye Bye to UMD23 March 2009 16:34:09
With all the rumours of the PSP2 over the last few months, we've heard that Sony may be heading toward a Sony PSP2 upgrade in the not-too-distant future.
According to Eurogamer an unnamed source has tipped them off with details of the PSP2, or the PSP-4000 as some have named it.
If rumour has it, the PSP2 will have the same screen as the PSP-3000, the only difference being that it can slide. When in the closed position, the unit will be significantly smaller in width and most controls will be covered, shoulder button-only games like LocoRoco should be playable while in this state.
It has also been suggested that the PSP2 could see the removal of the UMD Drive, the new handheld will have no optical disk drive of any kind. This may mean that games could be downloaded wirelessly. Other game publications reported in January that the PSP 2 would come equipped with a hard drive, multi-touch screen and built in GPS.
With the PSP2 rumoured to arrive later this year, it won't be long before we get more reliable information.
