Wired hands in realistic review of PS3

Wired hands in realistic review of PS3 photo



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: Helldivers

Mankind has expanded throughout the galaxy, having come together under one government, a "managed" democracy. From the Super Earth homeworld, humanity spreads its message of liberation and freedom to every planet they land upon; the liberation of their natural resources and freedom from human opposition, that is. And if you don't like it, expect them to spread a whole lot of ordinance instead.more

Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2: Episode 2

I didn't expect to enjoy the first episode of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 as much as I did. It was nice to see Barry and Claire back in action, and the co-op elements were implemented in a neat asynchronous manner. Not ...more
