Xbox 360 vs Sony PS3 - whatever turns you on
"choose your weapon"
Xbox 360 vs Sony PS3
So the Xbox 360 launches in the UK this week (I've played a demo unit and it is "nice enough" but not critically not quite nice enough to make me want one - yet)...
Here are a couple of links to articles about the new systems - looks like the usual new release 'bugs' are hitting the 360 with some machines 'turning themselves off' or 'freezing mid game':

Latest from Sony seems to be that they will present PS3 At CES Jan 2006: CES 2006
My favourite computer games story from the web today is this one taken from: www.gamesasylum.com
The Family Media Guide has issued their "2005's TOP 10 ULTRA-VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES".
Although no doubt intended as a warning to adults buying presents for little gamers, it's possibly more likely to be used as a check list for naughty kids...
GTA: San Andreas - "murder, theft, and destruction on every imaginable level"
Narc - "the ability to kick enemies' heads off"
50 Cent: Bulletproof - "loots the bodies of victims to buy new 50 Cent recordings and music videos"
Condemned: Criminal Origins - "a new level of detail to various injuries"
True Crime: New York City - "plant evidence on civilians and shake them down to earn extra money"
and for those sick bunnies out there - Resident Evil 4 - "During the first minutes of play, it's possible to find the corpse of a woman pinned up on a wall - by a pitchfork through her face."
As Games Asylum's own Jake Rukin says: "Most of those make the games sound more appealing than any review ever could. And indeed better than they actually are. Great job!"
You have been warned!!
So are you lovin your new 360 or waiting for the godlike PS3... let me know... or read my first thoughts on Narnia
