6 reasons to buy a PS3

It’s funny, I’ve been labeled a fanboy of nearly every console brand made. I guess you could say I’m just a fan of console games in general. I usually have no qualms with speaking whats on my mind about something. Recently I’ve been labeled an Xbox/Microsoft fanboy more than anything else.

PS3 PR Success in 8 steps

Posted in Blu-Ray,PS3,The Industry by Michael Pica on the May 24th, 2007

So being the helpful guru that I am I decided to make a guide for Sony executives who want to turn their consoles image from hate to elate.
