Best PS3 commercial I’ve seen so far

The nice thing about this PS3 ad is that it’s not all about explosions and graphics. But instead it focuses on the personal experience and at times the shared experience of owning the console. Much like the HP ads a few years back. At least it’s not as campy as “Wii would like to play.”

Leave reality behind

The Formula 1 season just started last weekend and what better way to celebrate than to oogle at these pictures from Kotaku. Yes, I did say Kotaku. Now why would a gaming site host pictures like this one above.

Because that image above is the in-game engine of GRAN TURISMO!!

Yes race fans! What you’ve always dreamed about is in the ultimate driving simulator. In the past we’ve complained about the physics and the handling of the Formula 1 cars in games published by then 989 Sports and even EA Sports. I’ve wished that it would have the handling of Gran Turismo.

Well wait no more. For a mere 2 Million in game credits, you can drive Kimi Raikonnen’s championship car in the game.

Now that is something to wait and play for.

Persona 3 FES coming to North America in April

Official Persona 3 FES Website

Atlus, in a surprise announcement says it will bring Persona 3 FES which was Japan only title will now be heading across the Pacific.

This is great news! Early adopters need not worry, you can transfer over your save game from the original game and import it into FES to take advantage of the new features and additional storyline. Wow and to think I’m almost done with it. It’s exciting to see Atlus bring over the extended special editions of their game to countries other than Japan. (Hint hint Square-Enix, cough cough Final Fantasy 12 Zodiac Job system, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix) I hope this will start a trend of these games finally seeing the light of day in the west.

Now all you fanboys can spend more time with Mitsuru-senpai. The fun arrives in April 22 of this year.

He’s got loads of time

In a recent news article in Gamestop, the GH3 World Record has been beaten.

I too am a fan of the series. In fact I have all of them on the PS2 and I’ve gone as far as playing every GH setup in Best Buy, Gamestop and Fry’s that I come across. I’ve also seriously practiced my Rock Band skills as well and have beaten my friends online.

But to go as far as to hold the World Record for GH3, that is serious commitment.

Stay tuned next week as this record is “officially” beaten in You Tube.
