Last time I said that Shit be unreal. Right now, Shit be dipping its toe in the waters of real, wearing gold plated armbands of respect and wearing jewel encrusted goggles of some other hip-hop term I’m not down with. Simply, this one is better than the last one, but not as good as the next one.
Computer and Video Games is up next. From issue #198, May ’98, they write:
“Apparently, Sony wants to make the Playstation 2 more than a mere games machine and reports suggest that the PS2 team are working with Microsoft’s Web TV developers to add Internet brosing capabilities to the console.”
What’s more, I hear that it can play NES cartridges and circumvent the issue of accelerating to light speed. It can even read future formats, foreseeing the technology that is yet to come and assimilating it into the console’s library, such as the interstellar spaceman format known only as “Bluu Rai”.
Actually, that last one is bollocks. But to its credit, the article does back up its rumour with evidence, going on to mention something about the then-unannounced Emtion engine and Ken Kutaragi’s intentions for the console, so the article isn’t just speculative drivel. Unfortunately, it’s all for bollocks when you look to the left and see a mock up of the GBC, apparently capable of playing Banjo Kazooie.
