Me and the Xbox 360

by on

Its been a great 5 year ride but I have decided to ditch the Xbox 360 as my number 1 gaming platform for the PlayStation 3. After this years E3 where we had yet more childish Kinect rubbish shoved down our throat it seems that the platform is no longer the best place to go for the games i want. It seems the only release on the horizon which I will definitly be buying for the 360 is Mass Effect 3 as I have invested tons of hours in to my Commander Shepard, any other multi platform titles I will buy will be based on how well they play on each format. If they are pretty much the same then i will buy them for the PS3.

That is all, Its been a fun 5 years but Kinect has totally ruined the 360 for me.

The Sony NGP (PSP2)

by on

So this morning Sony announced the worst secret in gaming, the NGP or PSP2 if you like. This device looks awesome to be honest and it kind of puts in a bind, I will only be able to afford one of the new handhelds this year, and I also like the look of the 3DS.
