This time around, I find that I am not as addicted to videogames as I was last year. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 didn’t get a hold on me as it’s previous release did. I think that’s a good thing. Since returning from my trip, there were days when my PlayStation 3 were collecting dust and beggin for attention – but to no avail. I was just dead tired and busy with other stuff. So, will that change anytime soon? Here’s a list of what’s coming this year as compiled by those guys at joystiq. What tickles your fancy? For me, ModNation Racers for PS3 (kinda like the Mario Kart in HD) and Super Mario Galaxy 2 on Nintendo Wii. I know I should be excited about titles like God Of War III, Final Fantasy XIII, MAG and Heavy Rain – but I’m not. What’s wrong with me? Check the list yourself after the break:

I’ve lost touch with what’s new on the Sony PlayStation for so long – this one slipped by me. Released on November 17th 2009, I gotta get myself to the game shop this weekend. Just to show some love to my dusty old Sony PlayStation Portable. Poor fella. Better recharge it tonite. Just gone through the Top 100 Best Selling PSP Games on Amazon, LittleBigPlanet for the PSP is no where to be seen. Maybe people are already sick of those little sackboys. Maybe.
Joystiq reported that the British Royal Navy bought 230 Sony PlayStation Portables at the cost of £50,000 to be given to it’s sailors for studies purposes. Hmmmmm, I thought such lame excuse could only be cooked up by school children to dupe their gadgets challenged soccer moms? Hey, if it worked on the British Government – maybe it’ll work for you too. Christmas is just around the corner – give it a go. Good luck!
Getting onto the PlayStation Store is not as easy I thought. So many things to download just to get the interface going. First off, gotta download this Media Go app (Windows only, no Mac). Then a couple more background installations plus QuickTime Player, Flash Player etc. Overall, it must have taken over 100Mb off my data plan. Sigh, if I knew it was such a big file, I would have done it while I’m at home. They should have a warning or indication on the expected file size to be downloaded. Damn.
I have not read-up on this, so I might be wrong. But here’s what I’ve been told by someone. If you get the new Sony PSP Go! You can visit PlayStation Network and download games onto your system. Afterall, PSP Go! is a UMD-less gaming machine. Every purchase is allowed to be downloaded 5 times, just like iTunes . This is in case you have a single account but multiple units. So, what you can do is, create a common account and share it with your friends. This way, you will still be supporting original gaming but having the cost shared. I like! Gathering 4 more people. It’s Go Time!
Christmas in October. I like. This year, Christmas came 2 months ahead of schedule. Santa dropped these off earlier this evening. A white Nintendo DSi, a white Sony PSP Go! and the new 120Gb PlayStation 3 Slim. I must have been a really good boy this year. Thank you Santa! More photos after the break:
I gotta say, I didn’t realize how tiny the PSP Go! is until Engadget put them together in their review. I have a white PSP, and doing a quick measure – this thing is small! Now that Sony has officially announced that they’ve decided to screw the UMD-to-digital file transfer to the PSP Go! Would you still fork out for something that’s gonna cost ya US$250 (RM871)? Me? Most probably not. Noticed that slanted probably?
