New PS3Blog.net Amazon store is live!

Hello everyone! We’ve completed revamping our Store where you’ll find all the games you know and love directly from Amazon.com!

Purchasing a game through our store helps us to pay for infrastructure and servers costs, and you still get the exact same Amazon experience as always while helping PS3Blog.net. All commissions we get from sales stay on the site and helps us have new giveaways, like the one we had for the recent Halloween Contest!

If you’re interested in purchasing a game (for any console), you can click on the “Store” button in the header bar, or click here. If you want an item that doesn’t seem available, leave us a note and we’ll see if we can make that item available for you!

Also, like you’ve already probably seen, we have begun including some “Buy From Amazon” buttons at the end of our reviews, so you can also click those buttons to reach the games on our store!

Naughty Dog Says PS3/Vita Can Do What Wii U Does

Now I do agree that the PS3 & Vita could do what the Wii U does. Question is will developers make it happen? My guess is probably not or very few games will do it. Because they need to rely on consumers to own a PS3 & Vita vs the Wii U where they just need to buy the Wii U console/controller. For that reason alone I don’t see very many Wii U type games using the PS3/Vita combo.

Below is part of a interview that NowGamer did with Justin Richmond the Game Director at Naughty Dog.

Obviously you won’t develop for Wii U, but I want to get your thoughts on the hardware. Does the console spark your imagination in any way?

Justin Richmond: To be honest with you, the idea of it is very, very cool. But there’s nothing that the Wii U has that the Vita and PS3 doesn’t. You know, it’s an interesting piece of technology, and I’m interested to see how people use it.

I’m not completely sold yet. That the screen isn’t multi-touch, that’s a little weird. It seems there are some very strange holes in it, but to be fair, last time I was sceptical of the original Wii, and look at how that did. I’m sure that he games they make for Wii U will be amazing.

What are your thoughts on this?
