PSP2: The Announcement

Well Sony has made their announcement for the PSP2, finally confirming even the existence of perhaps the worst kept secret for a console.  I wonder why it took them so long to make this announcement since pretty much most of the information has leaked out over the past few months.  Even developers have commented on the system.

Metroid Other M Review


 

 

Metroid Other M represents a bold shift in the Metroid series. After 3 Prime titles established the 3d, first-person Metroid franchise, Other M represents a return to older more 2d form, but with some major modern twists that will both please and irk the hell out of old-school Metroid fans.

Spiderman: Total Mayhem (iPhone)

 

 

I remember Spiderman 2 for the Xbox back in the day. I loved the feeling a swinging through the city streets and fighting crime, doing battle against some of Spiderman’s biggest foes. Then came the horror that was Spiderman 3, trying to follow the success of Spiderman 2 we were left with something that was just clearly rushed to cash in on the movie’s release. Which also was quite terrible in my opinion.

Digital vs Physical Media

Many in the industry are saying physical media is on the way out. Even claiming that the next generation of video game consoles may be without a disc drive entirely. Declaring digital downloads would be the norm in the future. But are they selling themselves short?
