We don't really have any particular ties to any one system apart from the obvious fact that we like talking about the PS3 on the site – we're certainly not official in terms of PlayStation reporting and there's nothing stopping us flicking a switch one day that means we're now able to start writing about other consoles.

Whilst the Wii enjoys a slightly off-kilter fanbase that doesn't concern itself with the goings-on in the wonderful world of HD gaming, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 fanbases are often entirely mutually exclusive, and for all the wrong reasons. Here's the bit that might shock you: I personally don't have a preference for either console, and here's why I think you shouldn't either."
