This is totally going against what I said in my last post, I figured since it’s another slow news day, here are the big stories from EGM 205.
-There is an interview with Kaz Hirai, which brings up some very good points (not in his favor though). The most notable is that unlike the 360, you cannot upgrade the console to get the same as you would get in the better package (i.e. Core can evolve to premium except the chrome on the disk tray.) The worst part is that in a picture on the next page, he has Playstation Water. Ugh, I’d hate to see a Playstation energy drink: Essence of Kutaragi…
-A Reggie interview is also in it. My favorite part was his reaction to the PS3 Price.
EGM: Did you give yourself a high five when Sony announced the price of the PS3?
Reggie:When I first heard their announcement, I was suprised. Arguably, you could say, shocked. When I heard the arrogance in their comments to support the price, I was even further shocked. They will do what they will do, and we will do what we do…
My thoughts exactally. Two words for Sony: RIIIIIIIIIDDGE RAAAACCEER!!!!
-They interview Microsofts Shane Kim, but that interview isn’t all that interesting.
-Interestingly enough, DS is the only system to get an “A” grade from E3…
– An article on FFXIII (thats 13) shows the only reason for me to buy a PS3. Or at least to convince a rich friend to anyway…
-Kojima (of MGS Fame) had this to say about E3:
EGM: What excited you the most at E#?
Hideo Kojima: Nintendo Wii.
– They do a crash course (pun intended) on the Gizmondo fiasco. Funny stuff.
-In the Rumor Section, which has been wrong before, states that some PS3 developers have moved their projects to Wii. Also it states that a LucasArts Star Wars Lightsaber game is coming exclusive to Wii. The last one was confirmed by the accomplished German gaming journalist: Falafelkid a few days before E3.
– The cover story on Call of Duty 3 is cool, I guess. I’m just so tired of WWII games, it failed to excite me. Ther is the first Wii shot of the game though. Google it, and you can see it.
Its a fairly good issue, but nothing like last months.
