This is my first trip in a long time, when none of my consoles travels with me. I've got some other things to do like reading books and gaining exp points and leveling up inn my new position as Chief Officer. But how long have You been far from Your main gaming system? SONY should hurry up with Vita...
Can anybody convince me to buy Nintendo 3Ds. I am not Nintendo fan, though NES was my first game console in 1989. I own 3 big consoles and PSP. I bought Nintendo mainly for WiiFit. No time to play Wii. Maybe my daughter will use it someday. She is under 3 years now. But I've got some very good boost in salary. But I am not sure if DS games will be for me. I know for sure that PS Vita is day one purchase. But please help me to decide. And kindly advise some games.
There was a scene with contactless fight and XBOX logo all around the place. So they use Kinect to entartain clones. Then there are so many thoughts. Are these factories with clones exist. Was NATAL abreviation for "Not Animals, They Are Livestock" relating to the habitants carrying organs?Or something else. Even Microsoft didn't now the meaning. So Kinect was expensive prototype. Then when technology for motion tracking became affordable they moved it to masses. I wished I could see that movie now to write more precisely about it.
I bought Samsung 6 Series 46" FullHD. It is very nice TV. 4 HDMI ports, 2 USB, Ethernet. It has built-in media player for viewing Videos and pictures from USB or network. Games look great. But not always play that way. First thing I did when I hooked it to my console? I did latency test using Beatles Rockband Rickenbacker Guitar. 120ms for video and audio dissaponted me. It is great for most single player games. But I miss in quick times events here and there. Playing online is no better, because it has its own latency as well. I have sound coming out of y PC speakers when I play rockband. So I play several games using FullHD monitor instead.
I would like to find out the panels above 46" and receivers with 0 latency.
So I have mate on my ship. He wants to by PS3. And he wanted to get iPhone. But then he had 600$ on his hands. I was telling him to buy PS3 for 340$(in Hong Kong 360GB model), FullHd Monitor and maybe move and few games. But he spent all his money on iPhone. Now he regrets this. He is playing on my PS3 with me. And because there is no GSM coverage in the ocean, his iPhone is a fancy pad for scratching. And I am joking that by the time he is back in Hong Kong the price for that iPhone model will drop dramaticaly, but PS3 will mostly be of the same pricepoint. I think he realised his mistake the moment he came back on ship. PES 2011 and PS Move made it more clear.
Do not invest in things that ou can not use now. Especially if they become much cheaper with time.
It looks to me that Dualshock 3 and XBOX 360 controller need revision. I was wondering if right analog stick can be replaced by trackball. Or touch sensitive area. That particular part can even be made replacable. You just remove the module if You need one or another.
Can we stop complaining on the 2 ports in PS3? Common! Realy. USB ports are like space on HDD. Its never enough. You need one for PS EYE. The second one is for synchronizing Your things with console and eventually connecting external memory units. Unlike XBOX360, You can copy media to PS3 HDD. That is NOT RECHARGABLE Station!!! If You own lots of controllers buy charging station. SONY made a good thing. They are the only ones, who made all their controllers with built in baterries. But it looks that after that they are blamed for lack of USB ports on the system. Just think how nuch You have to pay extra for competitors batteries.
Many of us hear stories about certain places. I am talking about Hong Kong. There is a certtainity that You can find any piece of hardware or software on that island. I've been there on several occasions and had no success in finding staff that is extremely popular in other places. I could not find English version of WiiFitPlus in Early 2010. DjHero for XBX 360 during same period. 5 months of game release and everybody is starring surprised. It is almost 2 months since RockBand 3 release. No software, no instruments. Or maybe I was looking in wrong spots? You can find that staff on Play-asia.com.
