Gamespotting 032 - Third for Now.....But Wait and See

Sony have taken one of the most radical changes over the last 10 years while they have been part of the games industry. They came from nowhere with the Playstation 1 and gained world wide success with the console and gained even more with its Sister console the Playstation 2 which has cemented itself as one of the most successful consoles in Video Games History.

But many people within the games industry have noted and also the popularity of its competition; Sony's current consoles the Playstation 3 and the PSP; even though they are both the most powerful in their respected fields are both last at the moment. But in my opinion; Sony have been waiting in the shadows as they watch what the competition have been doing; watching their success stories and huge disappointments and in the end; they are going to pull out something big.

I have never underestimated Sony during this generation but I know of a few people that have with the noted failure of some of their games and not instant popularity of its on-line service home and also the blu ray drive; but with their new upcoming titles and both revamps of their consoles (Which feature most importantly the price drop); they might finally get to climb the ladder and get some of their fanboys back. I know that they will never win this gen because of the insanely popular console that is sitting in front of millions of TVs around the world; but I hope they pull it together as I think they are not out yet.

Gamespotting 031 - Back from the Holidays

Hello Gamespotting readers; if there are any left; I am back on the blog and normal service is going to be resumed. I am sorry that there has not been as much as I wanted on the blog; but I have had so much going on at the moment that it has been at the back of my mind.

I have been up to loads over the summer; been sorting out some stuff for my third year of university mainly my third year project and also my dissertation which as the blogs have been on halt for a few weeks; but is going to be heavily updated from today. I have also been playing a lot of games; mainly Fallout 3 and a few sonic games. I have also rediscovered my PSP and have been replaying a lot of the titles that I have had stashed in my library somewhere; but even though I have completed Gitaroo Man Lives three times; I have lost the skills and can't play the game anymore which is highly frustrating.

But I have been doing a lot of personal projects as well; finally finished Stephen King's The Dark Tower series which I have got to say are fantastic, lost nearly three stone in weight (probable because of not eating all the yummy machine food in the centenary building) and finally improving my skills as a Video Games Student; e-books and the PDF are the best things ever.

But there are so many things that I want and need to do; but the time for third year is coming fast so I am going into overdrive from now on. So I hope everybody is having a good time this summer also and will see you back on here soon for some gaming rant of some kind (Maybe the PS3 slim or something like that???)
