I quickly took the unboxing video, and now we have to dub it, and do all this other stuff. We also will try to get it to work with our PS3, as some reports state. On super early impressions, it feels good, a bit bigger than the DS3, and a bit heftier, but not uncomfortable. It does feel more ergonomic in the hands. Shoulder buttons feel better placed and the analogs feel that much tighter. The touchpad, can also be pressed, which I didn’t know. In any case, here’s a quick comparo pic with my pretty dirty DS3.
We just picked up our very own dual shock 4 for Sony‘s upcoming PlayStation 4. We will have a hands on impressions up soon. Stay tuned.
..Kinda. I cam across this from another friends FaceSpace page, and thought it was quite interesting. What if the game’s we played today were done back in the 8 and 16 bit era. Wait, scratch that, they were done back then but with different names, and well, with the limited tech, different perspectives. As a long time gamer, I can’t help but see this parallel. It also makes me excited at how much better it will be in the future. I was blown away when I first played Gran Turismo 3 for the PS2, and now, I still get constantly blown away by the games that come out. Let’s just hope no one ruins it for us, and gives us craptastic titles, with this current head hunt on violence in video games. Time will tell.
A few days ago, I finally bit the bullet and bought a Happauge PVR 2 to provide you guys with some additional content on the games we are playing. I had bought this knowing that it will not work with the PS3 using HDMI. Since it has HDCP protection, you need to hook up your PS3 via component connection, and not HDMI. Anyway, the install, and set up on the PC was pretty straight forward. I just had to reset my PS3 video settings to do component since I was hooked up via HDMI. Long story short, after about a 15 or so minutes, installing the software, hooking it up, and resetting my PS3, I was up and running. (more…)
For those who own MGR: Revengeance for PS3 you’ll be happy to know that the exclusive 30 Missions DLC drops today. Head over to PSN later to grab your copy, which will be free for the first two weeks. After those two weeks are over however, the free for all goes out the window. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
