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.

It's still tough to believe a fighting game based on the Persona series exists, let alone is any good, but Persona 4 Arena certainly came as a pleasant surprise. Atlus and Arc System Works are two distinctive studios kno...more

Review: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc was an intelligent riff on the perils of high school -- you know, if you had thrown a murder mystery in between classes and the principal was a maniacal stuffed animal. Its sequel, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, takes a beleaguered trope and turns it on its head. This is one "trapped on a desert island" story that takes things to another level entirely.more
