So it happened, again, my PS3 decided that living a life where it only ever gets to play the greatest of its gaming library and a select few fantastic TV series or films was not to its taste. It took its own life with a flash of a small yellow bulb.
I would just sit on it and do nothing, as I do, which explains why I now have mismatching dual monitors, as I don’t tend to claim on warranties whilst they are still in date. But not this time! I had only just taken my freshly opened (ah I love new game smell) copy of Uncharted 2 upstairs when the bloody thing decided to kick the bucket, and there is no way I want to wait months before getting to grips with that.
So that makes;
Xbox 360 – Owned for 4 years – 2 Deaths
PS3 – Owned for 6 months – 2 Deaths
I’m starting to think the PS3 fanboys were making the red ring of death somewhat exaggerated…
Whilst I wait I expect I will keep myself contempt with the barrage of upcoming titles for my Xbox 360, most importantly….
Fallout New Vegas! – Because anything ‘fallout’ related has my attention
Enslaved! – Because the demo caught my attention, reminiscent of Prince of Persia
Fable 3! – Because I like it when NPC’s call me ‘Nobhead’
Castlevania – Because ‘Kojima’, enough said
And whilst the above, all four of them, are out of my price range right now I’d also like to get my grubby little mits on Medal of Honor, Naruto Shippuden, Gothic IV, Vanquish, Force Unleashed 2, The Sims 3 (for the wife!) and Two Words II.
Why did god make so many fantastic brilliant games come out in one month, yet still pay me the same lousy wage packet he gives me every other month? It’s not fair dammit!
