That is not the 60GB PS3 that is on display there, thats the 20GB version. Welp, we are only 1 month and 12 days away from launch day!


"But the release dates, gigahertz comparisons and Blu-ray boasts will probably take a backseat to the two most important factors: games and pricing. The Xbox 360 is slowly but surely amassing a roster of impressive titles and will have even more when the PS3 becomes available. Furthermore, the 360 will also be priced at least £145 less than the high-end PS3.

The burden is now on Sony to justify the massive price tag (for a gaming console) while it captures an exclusive, must-have game that sells the system. The most likely candidate for that honour lies with Konami's Metal Gear Solid 4. Sony didn't do itself any favours by drawing undue comparisons with the much cheaper Wii when it incorporated less impressive motion-sensitive technology in the controller. Sony's betting that hard-core gamers -- and high-def fanatics looking for a sub-£500 Blu-ray player -- will be happy to run up their credit card debt come next March. But for parents all over the world searching for a Christmas present, the cheaper Xbox 360 and Wii will be serious competition."

THE TRUTH6270d ago

I will preview the PS3 myself and make my own opinions based off the games I play. But I can pretty much say that PS3 has its system sellers, and yes I used a plural that SELLERS!! RFOM, Heavenly Sword, and Motorstorm all exclusive and all looking look like AAA titles! That's a FPS, a racing and a action game so Sony won't have to wait for MGS4! I can't wait to hit up my best buy to check these games out for myself!

Alice: Madness Returns - Retro Review

Reviewing Alice: Madness Returns almost feels like a rite of passage for me. You see, I'm from the same town as the childhood home of Charles Dodgson, better known to you and I by his pen-name, Lewis Carroll. As such, he's a bit of a local culture icon.

I played Alice: Madness Returns for the first time last year. What an amazing game and adventure. It's a huge shame we aren't getting a sequel to it. It absolutely deserves another game.

oh yeah, I remember this game! I remember liking it, but found the platforming to be utterly obnoxious. Loved the world design.

Good review!
