Life with PlayStation Update

Sony says it’s on it’s way, but it seems it won’t be August any more. It will be accessed directly from the XMB and it will be combined with Folding@home. So you check the news, weather, etc. and use Folding@home all at once.

While I’m talking about Folding@home be sure to join our team 55054, at the moment we only have 14 active members. But we are currently ranked 359, not bad, keep it up :)

Life with PlayStation is on its way

FIFA 09 or PES 2009?

The football (soccer to USA) season has started and Leipzig revealed a lot of information on the this year’s FIFA & PES titles. I have been a big fan of the Konami football series since PSOne but after the disaster that was PES 2008 i have started to lose faith and have been impressed by EA’s FIFA. So this year I am faced with a conundrum; FIFA or PES?

Below are interviews detailing the new features in each game.

FIFA 09

PES 2009

If you want more information on either title I can recommend these 2 blogs;

I must say the 10v10 online in FIFA is most intriguing! Which one are you guys going to pick up?

Home Coming this year we promise says Sony

It has been a LONG wait for Home, it’s been delayed again and again. But the wait is almost over. It “should” be coming sometime in 2008. The expanded private Home beta should be available this week, or at least more info on it. I’m guessing Friday or maybe in today’s PSN update. In fact Asia will be getting some details on the expanded Home beta tomorrow. See here.

I try not to think about Home much anymore to make the wait less painful. But I think for it to be really popular it needs to be continually updated with new info.

Home Producer Van der Meulen told IGN “without hesitation” that there is a “100 percent guarantee” that the oft-delayed Home will be released by “the end of this calendar year.” Not 2009. Not 2010. This year. “He has absolutely no doubt that this will be the case.”

You are ‘100 percent’ going Home this year
