Now is as good a time as any to re-evaluate where these two formats stand, read on to find out for yourself. (more…)

360 Price Drop

Posted in PS3,Wii,Xbox 360 by Michael Pica on the June 12th, 2007

When the 360 launched it did so at a price higher than most people were used to paying for a console. By the time the PS3′s price was announced the 360′s price tag didn’t seem all that bad, though, the Wii reminded us that a new console can still have a reasonable price. There’s a lot of rumors flying around about when we’ll see price drops happening this generation. Here are my predictions… (more…)

PS3 PR Success in 8 steps

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

Gamepro currently has an interview up with Dave Krakker from Sony about the negative PR that the PS3 has received. I seems obvious to me that he just doesn’t GET IT. Gamepro calls it “The Toughest Job in Video Games” but I don’t really think it’s all that difficult. 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.

Revenge of the XBLA

Posted in PS3,The Industry,Wii,Xbox 360 by Michael Pica on the March 21st, 2007

One of the best features of Xbox Live is the Live Arcade which allows you to download classic arcade games as well as new games in the classic arcade style. Many people don’t realize it but this was actually available on the Xbox 1, but it required you purchase a disc and there were only a very small handful of games (most of which which were either ported to or had a sequel on the Xbox 360 version of the arcade). The Xbox 360′s arcade offerings started fairly strong out of the gate but it has suffered a drought that it’s just now starting to overcome, unfortunately it comes at a time where they now have Nintendo and Sony to compete with in that regard as well. It leads one to wonder: what does the future hold for the Xbox Live Arcade? and do they have what it takes to put up a good show against the likes of Nintendo, Sony, or the countless Arcade style games on the PC?
