It's PS3's First Birthday - PS3 Cranks it up

Frost the cake, wrap the presents and book the creepy party clown who smells of cigarettes and Wild Turkey: today marks the PlayStation 3's first birthday. It's been a tumultuous 12 months for Sony's new pride and joy. PS3 sales remain lodged in third place behind the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360, several top-tier titles have been hit with delays and there are ongoing rumblings from some game programmers that the system is a beast to work on.

But the chunky toddler seems to be finally finding his feet. Sales are on the uptick, thanks in part to a new $399 PS3 model, while improvements to the console's system software have added some nifty features.

And most importantly, the killer games are finally starting to arrive, heralded by a pointy-eared alien and his robot life partner. Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is the first game since the year-old launch title Resistance: Fall of Man (also by Ratchet creators Insomnicac Games) that could truly convince some fence-sitters to take the next-gen PlayStation plunge:

That will be a pretty long orgasm then, because your 'sweet darling' (aka PS3) is delaying about everything.

Ah well at least this delay you'll enjoy. Probably.

If being a HUGE flop and so called AAA+ games that DO NOT SELL ...hello R&C, Lair and HS I am looking right at you.... and having almost every single game delayed is far from happy.

TheMART3996d ago

Sorry to spoil your party again, but those 3 sure all aren't AAA on and over 90% average reviewed games at all.

Lair? Don't make me laugh please...


You say??? Yeah a game that sucks donkey balls.

Heavenly Sword. Nice but just good, not great and certainly not AAA on or over 90%


Just well... Allright. God of War 2 on the original PS2 beats it any day

Ratchet & Clank is good, close to really great. But it's also not on or over 90% average reviews


Pretty good though as the only on and over 90% games are multiplatform games Oblivion and COD4.

Wow Mart, you're good at typing a lot of stuff and not really saying anything. Do you have a life outside of N4G? Does it involve playing WOW in your basement and getting your mom to make you hot pockets??

My PS3 has a date with Assassin's Creed and Uncharted, moving pretty fast for a toddler. Now I gotta have the "talk" about um protection and vocally transmitted diseases over the PSN.
