Sony

Is the PSP Go worth picking up?

Overall Feeling: 

The PSP Go is a slick system that works really well when it comes to form factor and design but is held back by a wallet punching price tag. If you're an existing PSP owner it's almost pointless to pick up the Go unless you're ready to abandon your old PSP. Just like the PS3 we're going to have a situation where people won't be picking up the PSP Go because of a price tag that is just ridiculous.

The Pros: 

Sleek design that despite the smaller size feels incredibly good when it's in your hands. The screen is as sharp as ever and doesn't feel too small. And finally the PSP is a system that you can easily take with you since the size of the PSP Go makes it extremely easy and comfortable to put in pockets or bags.

The Cons: 

The price tag. Seriously, the thing is a deal breaker and will surely prevent many from picking the console up. The lack of any new features or key improvements make the PSP Go a console that doesn't have that immediate "I need to get this now" factor.

When it comes to console redesigns Sony really doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of love. A lot of people hated the look of the PS3 Slim despite liking its new slimmer form factor but when it came to the PSP Go almost everyone seemed to trash it.  Now is this a case of people not understanding what Sony is trying to achieve with the PSP Go or are they justified in their disdain for the new addition to the PSP family?

[Video] Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled HD history, comparison and review

Overall Feeling: 

The game delivers enough to be appease any classic TMNT fan, but definitely doesn't fulfil all of their demands.

The Pros: 

Ninja Turtles Arcade action in HD! Enemy and level visuals look great. Great online play that is fast to setup and connect and feels like a local match. They did a great job on recreating the arcade voices.

The Cons: 

The lack of retro music and the decision to use the shorter arcade version of the game makes the project seem half hearted. Turtles look semi anime. People who are not turtles fans may wish the game was as long as its name.

We have a special video review of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-shelled. It will walk you through a brief history of the Turtles and compare the newest game with the classic SNES and Arcade versions it's based on. We'll talk about the differences between the three versions and discuss if this latest HD remix is a welcome addition to the nostalgic Turtles franchise.

PlayStation 3 Slim review

Overall Feeling: 

The PS3 Slim may not be completely slim as it still has heft to it but the design as a whole works really well. Design wise it's almost a throwback to the PS2 and the new design definitely helps the console to be more accessible instead of it being a giant monolith that people associated with as "the console that costs too much."

The Pros: 

Matte finish comes across really nice; the new Eject and Power buttons are small changes but add a small sense of depth to the design. SpiderMan font is gone.

The Cons: 

Some people will hate the matte finish; logo could've used more of a pop. It would've been nice if it wasn't as wide.

The story of the PlayStation 3 Slim has been an interesting one.  When production photos leaked online in late May reactions to the console was quite mixed.
