Yahoo! News: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said that Sony’s PlayStation video game console is “poison” and leads children down the capitalist “road to hell,”. Before this, he also slammed Nintendo for promoting “selfishness, individualism and violence”. He continued by saying any game that “bomb cities or just throw bombs,” are sold by capitalist countries to sow violence so they can “later sell weapons.” Oh my god! He is absolutely right! What a great awakening! I am so gonna throw out both my PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wiis and Xbox360s! Like now!

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:
Activision, the game publisher of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 proudly announce that they’ve sold approximately 4.7 million copies of the game in US and Europe on day-one! According to the press release, it states – “Most Anticipated Game of the Year Becomes Biggest Entertainment Launch in History”. It’s said that for a game to be profitable – it has to cross the 1 million copies mark. For comparison, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – a PlayStation 3 exclusive title only sold 537,000 copies in the entire month of October. Note: Modern Warfare 2 is cross platform.
I am sounding more and more like a Xbox360 fanboy these days. But I just can’t help it. Everything team Xbox360 does kicks team PlayStation 3’s ass. Come November 17th 2009, Xbox360 users will have their Social Networking presented in glorious 1080p on their tv screen. FaceBook, Twitter and Last.FM – all in. Check out these screens, beautiful. How about folks on the PlayStation 3? FaceBook is said to be added soon to the damn XMB. Don’t be lazy team PlayStation. You got off easy with porting the dated PSP interface over to the PlayStation 3. It’s bout freaking time for a total revamp. You guys are losing out and stop being such a complacent ass. Work for our loyalty – damn it! More pictures after the break:
Just got back from my regular gameshop. Saw this drool worthy box sitting on-top of a glass shelf like a priced possession. This is the premium bundle which includes the Tekken 6 game, limited edition wireless fight stick crafted by Hori and collectible Art book. My drool stopped once I was told it costs RM550.
Cool? Yes. Highly desirable? You bet. Can I afford it? Nah. Retailing for US$399 – it features a specially designed CoD: Modern Warfare 2 Xbox 360 bundled with a 250GB hardisk and 2 matching controllers. Unit will be released on the same day as the game – 10th November 2009. Infinity Ward, how bout some love for the PlayStation 3?
I love what Kotaku did with this. In my opinion, I think its way better than the official visual by the event organizers. Tokyo Game Show, happening from today till Sunday, 27th September 2009. Each year, I’ll ask myself exactly the same question – Why am I not there? Like a broken record, I’ll get exactly the same answer – money.
