Gamers Salivate at PS3 2008 Developments

50°
323w ago - A little earlier this month, the rumors were flying about the impending discontinuance of the 80GB PS3. There is no doubt that in the gaming stratosphere, absolutely anything about the PS3 will spark debate and discussion.

Playstation.blog admits that it spends a great deal of time championing the merits of the PlayStation 3 as the very best, powerful, high-value video gaming console available. And this coming March will be no different, as the EGM (Electronic Gaming Monthly) magazine cover story will feature a story outlining what can be expected in 2008. Fan commentary is literally salivating at the very thought of the arrival of this issue, which promises to provide detail about what is in store for avid users.

Predictions from the masses for 2008 include: Sony will be dominant, Bluray will win the most recognition, production costs will lower on PS3, the home line up of games will see strong sales overseas in Europe and Japan, and there will be more compelling PSN games on the horizon.
Of course, the cover of EGM seems to indicate that 2007 was less than a stellar year for the PS3. Many gamers beg to differ, citing that as many as 15 games were purchased. Games such as Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, Warhawk, UT3, and CoD4, were dubbed "amazing."

Diehard PS fans also include those who...

323w ago - An advanced Target ad for the week beginning February 24 lists a base slimline PlayStation 2 console for $99. It's unknown if the price reduction will be exclusive to Target stores or if it is retail wide.

Retailers usually don't place temporary sales on hardware, so we're hoping for the latter. Either way, $99 PS2 at Target on February 24. Better mark your calendars if you still have yet to pick up a PS2.

True power of PlayStation 3 to be revealed in 2008

50°
323w ago - 2008 will be a boom time for the PlayStation 3, say leading developers.

2007 saw the Xbox 360 stealing the software limelight through more than a few critically acclaimed console exclusives, while the Nintendo Wii's ongoing popularity saw it surpassing all of its market rivals in unit sales. But what of the PlayStation 3?

2007 for the PS3 saw a parade of somewhat disappointing software exclusives, repeated delays to eagerly anticipated flagship titles, and a blizzard of confusion and controversy surrounding price reductions and the culling of lower GB hardware models. Along the way it also managed to benefit from the value of its steadily expanding PlayStation Store and the likes of Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

That being said, 2007 certainly wasn't the year that Sony and its faithful PlayStation fans were hoping for. Well, saddle up believers, because the videogame development community is indicating that 2008 will be the year that the true power behind the PlayStation 3 comes to the fore. Excited? You should be.

More pointedly, several prominent industry figures have recently been quoted in a Games Radar report as claiming that after a year of the PS3's life cycle videogame developers are finally growing more accustomed...
