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: Squids Odyssey

Splatoon might be getting a lot of hype for Wii U squid battling, but it is not the first game featuring a squid squad to grace the console. Earlier this year, Squids made its jump from iOS to the Wii U with Squids Odyssey, a...more

Review: Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty

One of the first games I ever played on PlayStation was Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. I remember opening up the jewel case, adorned by a creepy looking creature with his mouth sewn shut, with no idea of what to expect. Over t...more
