New Gaming PCs, Next-gen XBox and PlayStation 4 All Doomed?

100°
285w ago - Rahul Sood - onetime CPC columnist, founder of VoodooPC and now big cheese at HP - has been busy recently, presiding over lots of positive coverage of his most recent project, HP's small-and-sleek gaming PC, the [Register or Login to view links], while also finding time to write a series of lengthy and doom-laden blog posts.

Well, their titles were doom-laden, at any rate: both the gaming PC and games consoles as we know them, are doomed. Both posts are confidently argued, and the reasoning behind both is similar: for Rahul, it's a question of costs vs benefits.

On the gaming PC side of things, the number of people willing to pay thousands and thousands of dollars/pounds for ludicrously powerful gaming machines is getting ever smaller, tempted into causing their own extinction by ever more expensive, power-hungry multi-GPU systems.

On the console side of things, Rahul reasons, it's not the customer but the companies - well, Microsoft and Sony - that can't afford to create any more machines along the lines of the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Their business model is to sell the console itself at a loss, and make a profit on the add-ons, games and licensing agreements.

I certainly think he's right about the PS3; all the sales data points to it...

Confirmed: God Of War 3 Hits March 2010 for PlayStation 3

250°
286w ago - Gamestop sources have unveiled an e-mail sent to them by Sony that state March 2010 is the current (estimated) release date for God Of War 3 for the PS3.

This may come to many as a disappointment, but not for me. I see this as extra time for Sony to polish up a great title that is already looking outstanding from the few trailers out so far.

I see this a better opportunity for us gamers to get the full experience from a game; there already is a bunch of great Sony titles coming out in 09 and not to mention the multiplatform titles as well.

I like buying all hot titles on launch day even if I haven't beat the previous game played, its just in my nature. I will give the newer games a test run, but quickly return to my previous game to finish it. I don't like doing it like that, so its good to see space between all these titles to be released in 09.

On a side note, Killzone 2 sets off the PS3 for 2009, just as GoW 3 will set it off in 2010. Killzone 2 has jumped from sales rank of 40th to 7th to 1st on overal video game sales which according to amazon represents a 1900% increase.

The Increase percentage from 2nd to 1st shows at as 600% increase. It has even bested the likes of Wii Fit, yesterday it was in second place, and I wouldn't be surprised if it took the...

Bejeweled 2 Coming to Sony's PlayStation Network

50°
286w ago - Today PopCap Games Vice President of Video Game Platforms Greg Canessa announced that Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) and PopCap have teamed up to bring hit casual game titles to PSN and PlayStation 3 as follows:

Our first title is none other than the classic online puzzle game Bejeweled 2. Many of you may be familiar with the franchise - it has won dozens of awards and has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.

It's our biggest franchise at PopCap and our most successful title, which is why we chose Bejeweled 2 as our first title for PSN and PS3. The game is a natural fit for the platform - it plays great, looks great and is as compelling as ever.

And there is a ton of gameplay in Bejeweled 2 - four different game modes, more than 60 puzzles, power-ups, high-definition graphics and much more. And if you're like me, you'll sit there for hours playing late into the night, wondering why you're unable to pull yourself away!

The team at SOE has been fantastic to work with, and they share our vision of making the best versions of our games possible, with features that are specific to the PS3 platform.

For Bejeweled 2, that means exclusive stuff like Trophy support and PSP remote play, which you'll only find on PSN. We've got similar exclusive...
