SHOCKING NEWS! (Not Really): Sony Working On New Console With AMD

The next-gen console hype has been lingering for a bit already with buzz about the next iteration of the Xbox and small murmurs about the next PlayStation. So far we haven’t received anything too substantial as both Sony and Microsoft have issued flat out denials stating that they have no plans to show a new console at E3 this year or that doing such a thing would be simply split the focus on other key products too much.

Killzone 3 releases Killstreak trailer

Sony released another trailer for Killzone 3 today. The trailer showed off the killstreak perks that will be featured in the multiplayer aspect of the upcoming first person shooter. 

ModNation Racers

Overall Feeling: 

ModNation Racers puts off all the worries of skeptics and the delusional folks that believe kart racing games are dead. With a new feel and great high definition graphics, ModNation is solid. All of your favorite types of weapons are available. ModNation Racers is the perfect modern kart racer. We've evolved, so has kart racing.

The Pros: 

All of the graphics and visuals in ModNation Racers are superb. The Multiplayer is top-notch and hard to master. The controls do take a bit to get used to, but once familiar they are the perfect layout. If you like to customize, this is the game for you. With thousands of items and modifications, you could (if you choose) never put this game away.

The Cons: 

With a very tedious "career" mode (which is the only way to unlock a lot of the items) ModNation tends to push you towards either same-couch multiplayer, or online. The biggest tick I had with the career mode was the announcers, at first their quips were cute and funny, but they soon grew tiring. The announcers also call you "Tag" no matter what you do, weird. If you stay away from the career mode, then ModNation doesn't stack up a big dirty list of Cons. It's just great.

Thanks to my awesomeness of epic proportions, I had the delight of attending two local Gaming Expos this year. The First was Vancouver Film School's Game Design Expo, the second was GDC Canada 2010. During both conventions Sony/UnitedFront Games we're showing off ModNation Racers. Basing my opinions on the short bursts of gameplay I got to sneak in during these conventions, I was eager to purchase the game as soon as it was released.

Just a reminder to all of you who were thinking about, or have started on, the Four Day challenge: It’s coming to a close.

I’m sure there will be some snazzy prizes handed out as well.

 

Sony announces new digital book reader devices

Amazon’s Kindle digital book reader seems to have caught on amongst consumers due to its sleek layout and interface and most importantly the somewhat affordable price. The device still hasn’t caught on with the mainstream to the point where everyone on the street has one but it has certainly done better than past attempts at penetrating the market.
