It’s been a long time for updates, but hey, busy weeks and a general lack-of-gaming mood do take their toll on people. And of course, the World Cup.
I don’t watch the World Cup, but I’ve been drawn into its whirlpool by having to do stuff about it. Soccer video games anyone?
Winning Eleven, FIFA, Football Manager… And hey, try the newly-released Sensible Soccer for something different.
In other news, it seems like the PlayStation 2 is still outselling the Xbox 360 over in the United States. Not surprising, considering the different price points. Perhaps when the PlayStation 3 is launched with that crazy-insane price point of theirs that we’ll have a more accurate comparison on how many hardcore gamers buy either console.
And then there is the DS Lite, which has been released in the US. Heads up, people. It’s selling for less than $250 here if I got my prices right, which means that unless you really, really want your local warranty (which incidentally doesn’t cover dead pixels these days) and local power adapter, it’s time to move into the Lite era.
In fact, with my speculation of the local launch price, go get the US set anyway. Or wait another twelve days for the local set to be launched. Yes baby, 25 June.
I’m still going to wait for my preciousss black.
