Wired hands in realistic review of PS3

Unlike other sites and publications quick to jump the gun on declaring the PlayStation 3 dead in their assessment, Wired actually takes the common sense route: The PS3 is impressive, but just not what it should be yet.

Truer words have never been spoken. Thank you Chris Kohler for bringing some perspective to this insanity:

Sleek and powerful, the PlayStation 3 will eventually be worth its hefty price tag. But right now, Sony's new game console remains an icon of teasing potential.

From a pure tech-for-your-buck angle, Sony's new game machine, which launched Nov. 17, is a bargain. It sports the seven-core IBM Cell processor -- easily the most powerful engine ever put inside a console -- plus a Blu-ray drive for high-definition movie playback.

This sums it all up for the PS3: "For now, PS3's functions don't live up to the promise of its processing power." Cut through the online b.s. and the review is pretty much what most of us are thinking: Great machine, just not worth getting quite yet.

Review: Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus

In the world of Senran Kagura, excess is the rule. The outfits are skimpy, the plot threads are ludicrous, and the breasts are laughably large, so huge in fact that you wonder how the skimpy bras the girls are eventually stri...more

Review: Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments

In Fyodor Dostoyevsky's weighty novel Crime and Punishment, the central character robs and murders a loan shark and pawn broker but justifies the act in his own mind because he will use the money for good. Doestoyevsky's anti...more
