DS vs. PSP: Look it up, folks...

Nintendo DS: Don't buy this.Nintendo DS: Don't buy this.I just saw something pretty funny over at Kotaku: The DS Sucks Folks, Look it up! I haven't seen this guy before, but apparently he's Jonathan Harchick, and he's been doing his Talking With Jon show since 2002. It's a pretty terrible show, yet at the same time, there's something oddly compelling about it. At any rate, it's worth a few chuckles, and will probably remind you all-too-well of some dork down the street who thinks he knows gaming.

Ramblings, Thoughts and Predictions on Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, GameTap (PC) and the Future

With E3 long past and all the data readily available and no doubt already devoured by those reading this right now, I thought it would be a good time to make some of my thoughts surrounding Nintendo's Wii, Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PS3, as well as the GameTap service for the PC, known. (all my thoughts of course are US-centric)

Nintendo Wii Controller and AttachmentNintendo Wii Controller and AttachmentAnyway, whether the Wii - and yes, I still believe the name is a poor one and an unecessary liability - releases at $199 or $249, it should still come in at a good value in comparison to the high end $399 version of the Xbox 360 and the high end $599 version of the PS3. At the same time, the high end Microsoft and Sony systems are high quality multimedia centers, whereas the Wii is not. For many, this is not a factor, as they just want a game system, but I believe the higher prices - anywhere from $200 to $400 - are still justified, particularly as they're the only consoles to offer hi-definition gaming. Nintendo really has made a clear distinction with their direction, as have Microsoft and Sony with their hardware decisions. (and again, don't use the videogames are for kids argument with me, as a kid can't afford $200+ any more than one could afford $400+; don't forget, the average gamer age is now 33 and rises EVERY YEAR)

Nintendo: Sony, Quit Coppin' Our Style!!

PS3 Motion Sensor: Sony's Sensing GamePadPS3 Motion Sensor: Sony's Sensing GamePadIf there's one thing that's gotten a lot of chatter on the net about the Wii (well, besides the name), it's that unique and very promising controller. Sony was obviously listening to the excitement and announced a motion-sensing feature in its new PS3 controller. David Yarnton of Nintendo UK isn't happy about Sony's plans to release a new "motion-sensing controller." To wit: "I don't know what [Sony's] decision making process is but I think if you look back, any innovation that has come in gameplay has come from us." Ouch! Perhaps Nintendo should announce some totally bogus new gameplay innovation, such as cold fusion, and see what happens at Sony...
