Need For Speed: The Run

6 Jun

So amongst the huge amounts of stuff going on at E3 and particularly the Xbox Press Conference today, we spotted the updated frnachise for Need for Speed.  And this time we think it looks pretty damn cool!

In a cross-country race from San Francisco to New York you race and fight off an army of other drivers and racers and the ammo to boot.  Additionally, the interface brings the best career tracking to date.  Comparing times through connecting with your friends and competing to a new level.

Check out the fresh trailor below available from You Tube.

In a no holds barred cross-country race from San Francisco to New York, you’ll fight an army of racers and a hailstorm of bullets both inside and outside of the car.

Will the new Nintendo Wii HD (Project Cafe) get Wii sales back on track?

18 May

There are varying views about the Wii at the moment. Sales have declined against Xbox 360 and Playstation but and many people now looking at the Wii see an occasional game system or party game system.

I have a lot of time for the Wii, I never fail to enjoy playing games on the Wii but it is lacking in HD and good sound quality.

So Project Cafe was outed a few weeks ago and word is that the new Wii HD will break cover at Junes E3 event.

But with Kinect and Sony Play now firmly set in peoples living rooms and bedrooms, will the Wii HD bring what it needs to compete.

Time will tell and the video (albeit nobody seems sure if it is genuine) that has broken on You Tube this morning brings some interesting thoughts.

But all I would say at this stage is that if you love the Wii, you probably have pedigree behind you and enjoyed the N64 and the SNES behind that. Nintendo don’t do bad game systems and while the Xbox and Playstation are going to b difficult to beat as an all round entertainment experience (ones which are constantly being developed and expanded), the Wii HD will be great for Gaming. And it’s here that the system will need to keep to it’s roots and where likely it will be a massive hit.

Playstation Apology…Is Sony proposition enough and what about wider problems with the PSN security breach?

18 May

If you read across the web yesterday as an PSN customer, there was some good news of free games and free access (depending on your own account) as an apology for the desperate PSN security breaches and subsequent down time of the service.

I guess Sony really have no choic but we just wonder if any of the security breach itself has caused PSN users problems with their personal details being hacked. Anyone suffered identity fraud as a result and so on? If so, what do Sony have to do for these poor customers and can it indeed be proved that the PSN security breach was the cause. Lets hope Sony play a good hand on these instances too.

I guess another question is that if you accept the apology package, will that also stop you pursuing Sony if you subsequently have security problems as a result of your information being stolen? Ie. you are opting to let Sony off by accepting the package? Be good to hear from Sony in this regard and your own thoughts. Hopefully Sony or someone can report back on this. And in the end, lets hope PSN customers have had no problems.

Lets me know your thoughts on the packages on offer as an apology and if you have had security problems as a result and your reaction to all of this.
