Overall, since i am planning to purchase a PS3, i will get the slim seeing that it is much clean in appearance. PS3 Slim will hit the stores come Sept.1st of 2009.

Starcraft II NEWS
BlizzCon 09 was kind enough to present Blizzard enthusiasts with Cinematics and gameplay of their upcoming, much anticipated release of Starcraft II. The cinematic which you can view above showcased the old characters the Queen of Blades Kerrigan and the mighty, legendary dark templar Zeratul in a confrontation of what seems to be the relics of the old Xel’Naga Temple. From the cinematic itself, it would seem players will dive deep in the storyline this time around to uncover what is behind the closed doors which we hear Zeratul say “To save or To destroy.”
GuildWars 2! Time to make Legends come true.
NCSoft, a world reknowned game company is proud to present to the gamers worldwide the trailer of Guildwars 2. GuildWars 2 realm is set on the Awakening of a new threat known as the Dragons led by Zhaitan. Zhaitan raised the sunken nation of Orr (GuildWars Lore, the nation of Orr was buried deep in the ocean due to an incident). He then mustered his undead armies and now threatens the whole of Tyria. With the threat now pushing them to extinction, the five races: Charr ( Ferocious Feline Beasts of Fire ), Asura ( Magic inventors of great intellect and small size ), Norn (Shapeshifters of the North), Sylvari ( Race of visionary plant folk), and humans have now banded together, putting aside their long history of disputes in order to oppose and destroy the common enemy. As a GuildWars fan myself, i’ll be playing this along with another game of theirs which will come this 2010.
Tekken 6 on PSP
(Video 1: Tekken 6 on PSP. Video 2: Tekken 6 Console Trailer)
The incoming console release of Tekken 6 which is headed for the Xbox360, PS3 and PSP is taking the gaming industry like by storm. Visitors of the last GameCom which was held at Germany were given the chance to see the output of the PSP release as well as the new trailer that was shown within the said convention. While having Tekken 6 for the PSP is a great idea of NAMCO, the downside of it however is that the degrade of graphics itself. From the stage of the battles to the character rendering, Namco seems to have completely trashed the Tekken 5 DR graphics system and gave a slight of Tekken 4 effect on this one. The motion blurs are also removed seeing that the PSP does not have the capabilities to work the blur graphics that NAMCO gave their game. At the end of it all, Tekken 6 for psp has a 60 fps (frames per second) which is definitely nice given the capabilities of the PSP. Gamers will surely need to have this one on their pockets for combo check and other endeavors that they may encounter as they play in the arcades. Sample of the PSP version is on the video above.
