I’ll be getting Rainbow Six: Vegas for the PS3 when it’s finally released on Friday, so here is a little teaser video of the PS3 exclusive map “Wartorn”:
Looks pretty cool and I think my clan mates and I will have a lot of fun online with this.
Anybody else picking up RSV for the PS3?
EDIT: 1up.com gave it an 8.5.
Sony’s new official blog is great. We get decent information in advance for a change. Like this:
Scheduled for release in the next few days, firmware 1.82 is an update that enables the playback of AVC High Profile H.264/MPEG-4 files. As most of you know, these are high quality files that you’ll now be able to play on your PS3. Hopefully this update is moving us closer to the audio playback features many of you commented about in my post the other week.
Hopefully this means that all these experiments I’ve been doing to get nice videos on my PS3 will finally bear fruit.
The only problem is, I don’t know what “AVC High Profile H.264/MPEG-4″ is. I thought that’s what the PS3 already supported. Anyone care to enlighten me? And does it mean that I’ll be able to create mp4 files with 5.1 surround that the PS3 understands?
PSU has a comparison chart showing the exclusive titles coming out for the 360, Wii, and PS3. It made me think two things:
1. I’m glad I have a PS3. Most of the exclusives (with a few rare exceptions) on other platforms don’t interest me as much as the PS3 exclusives. Which is why I bought a PS3 – it has the kind of games I like. For others, their choices are different.
2. I got to thinking about which exclusive I want the most. I am really quite interested in PS3 Killzone, but there just isn’t enough information out there yet to warrant a vote for that game, plus it’s probably not going to be a 2007 title. So I have to choose something in 2007. I think I’d have to go for Warhawk. I’m in the beta, and I know it’s a blast to play. I just wish my friend and I wouldn’t constantly get kicked out of games (right at the start) for playing splitscreen.
So take a look in the sidebar and choose your most anticipated 2007 PS3 exclusive game.

The Bourne Identity is one of my favourite books. The book sequels get progressively worse, so never mind those. Luckily for me, both The Bourne Identity movie and the sequel, The Bourne Supremacy, were both very good movies. So I’m looking forward to the third movie, The Bourne Ultimatum, this summer more than any other movie.
Of course, the movies are nothing like the books, and that’s probably why they’re so good. They chart their own course. For example, in the book, Bourne’s nemesis is a dude named Carlos (a real life terrorist). Carlos is currently behind bars, which would make it seem kinda silly for Bourne to be going after him.
But now there’s also a Bourne video game – The Bourne Conspiracy. Will it be any good? I doubt it. Why? Because it’s a movie based on a movie based on a book. But I’ll give it a rental at least to see how it fares…
