I'm not gonna buy into the hype of Killzone 2. The original had quite a bit of hype, and it did not deliver.

set mouths to stunned! A slew of new Heavenly Sword pictures...my goodness!

If you can't read French, don't worry about it. Just click and be amazed of the pretty pictures. Most impressive game on any console I've seen so far, followed closely by Uncharted, Lair, Mass Effect, and Too Human.


This picture pretty much sums up my facial expression

Pretty easy now to forgive the game for missing the launch window...

I almost cannot take Kotaku's anti-PS3 bias anymore.

Boys, please list out all your alternative gaming news sites so I can take a look.

While there is an anti-PS3 atmosphere nowadays, Kotaku is just a mix really. It just depends on the news (or fan bait) of the day. Unfortunately, I don't think there's such a thing as a balanced alternative out there right now.

HOT PS3s
Europe gets HDTVs, Canadians get these. I feel soo left out, I demand a car damnit.
So on the color topic, I really think Sony should do that more, take a hint from the DS. The silver PS2 came out when everybody and my grandma already had one so I didn't even bother, and I'm still waiting for my white PSP.

Well, maybe it's a "mix" because I'm furiously trying to fight off these bastards nowadays. A little teasing and they admit in their next post that they were being "facetious". I mean, it's quite obvious. I imagine some of them could really be Microsoft astroturfers in some form. The hate is just unbelievable.

I don't need a balanced alternative. I need something less PS3-shitty than Kotaku.

Sorry, can't help you on that one.

Joystiq? Destructoid? It's the same pretty much anywhere else. Well, there's the Playstation blog, but that's limited to news and updates related to the PS3 and PSP.

Boys, please list out all your alternative gaming news sites so I can take a look.
http://www.siliconera.com

http://www.famitsu.com
http://www.gamasutra.com
http://www.computerandvideogames.com
http://www.gamesindustry.biz/

And occasionally check of some magazine homepages.

The problem with bloggers is, well they're bloggers and don't need
to care about relations with companies,
so they can be really subjective most of the time.
Good thing is that they do actually list the sources,
so you can trace back where the stories originated from.

Magazines and commercial based news sites
can be too objective, and they don't lists their sources,
so some stories and information can bevery questionable.
And if something proofs to be wrong, they rarely apologies
for their wrong doings.

Best thing to do is read the stuff and made up your own thoughts.
Most of the time i ignore the authours/reports own options anyway,
and try to build up my option from the original source of the stories,
reviews of games is a different story.

I have a question for those that played Ninja Gaiden Sigma. What outfit do you start off with?

Because I was expecting to start off with the black pleather tights but instead got the regular full shinobi outfit. It kind of defeat the purpose of having the covers and all the images of Ryu in his black pleather suit only to start the game with a regular traditional shinobi costume.

(noted I'm still just on chapter 2 on normal mode)

You own the Collectors Edition, right? I believe you can play with the black pleather tights on Hard Mode, once you finish it you can "unlock" it and use it on other modes I think.

I'm planning to get a PS3 within this year... but heard that they plan to do some price cuts. If that is the case, I wonder how much they are gonna cut? Well anyways, I want to ask all you PS3 owners something here, so I appreciate if you guys can give me some input. Just wondering, (and sorry if I sound kind a ignorant) can you install all the PS3 games onto the hard-drive? Or is is only restricted to a selected few games? For 60 GB HD, how many games can you approx install in? Thanks in advance....

(1) They will likely cut at least US $100.

(2) I don't think you can install all PS3 games onto the HDD. Hopefully someone can help you with that.

(3) Also note that you can easily fix in your own enlarged 160gb HDD.



In other news, Microsoft announces a change to their warranty policy and all from the X360 red-rings-of-death fiasco. Extended to three years, with payback in fees to all customers who've paid. That is EXCELLENT for customers.

However, they're also going to report a US$1 Billion change to their pre-tax earnings because of this. I called it.

Shin-Getter, the PS3 price cut seems to be out. It's not fully confirmed:

$100 price cut.

I would prefer if they fix this issue directly. I wouldn't want to send my unit out for repairs, even if it's for free. That's just another hassle for me. Does anyone know when (or if) those 65nm chips will be used in later Xbox360 units? However, this is a start for the better. At least MS is (finally) admitting that something is wrong with their console.

As for the PS3 price cut, it's not yet confirmed. We'll just have to wait and see.

When you send out your unit for repair, they fix in an additional heat-sink this time. Which should cure most RROD happenings (which occur due to overheating). I think that should help plenty.
