PS3/Xbox 360 – Which Game Do You Want To See Brought Back From The Retro Afterlife?

July 9, 2010 | | 8 Comments

I though I’d throw this out to the masses as I recently had a debate with a friend regarding games you’d like to see being re-developed for the consoles of the HD age.

We started off by looking at games that have already been given the HD treatment and I of course mean given a new lease of life. The first game which sprung to mind was the Street Fighter series – quite an obvious one due to it being a massive 2D beat-em-up back in the early/mid 90s. SF always had a huge following, and with Capcom making tons of different versions (anyone remember the Rainbow Edition of SF2? ), they decided to make the jump and give it a next-gen life by bringing out Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4.

NBA Jam is another one that’s due to hit the shelves soon, along with Lemmings which was released on the PSN when the Ps3 was launched back in 2006/2007, and whilst you can look at a long list of games being brought back from the Retro afterlife we decided to switch our attention to just one game we would like to see brought back from the dead and one that we’d love to see in full hi-def glory.

This Generation Paving the Way for PS4?

February 9, 2010 | | 27 Comments


*Article is an opinion of the writer and should not be seen as fuel for the “console war”, even though that will probably be it’s fate*

This generation of gaming consoles has proven a lot of things since the Xbox 360 launched. Remember the days when the PlayStation 3 was stumbling down a steep hill, with sales numbers faltering up until the price drop and the release of the Slim model? Out of the big three, Sony is, indeed, in 3rd place in total number of consoles sold, lagging behind the 360 by 5 – 6 million units (Wii is at around a ridiculous 67 million).

Because of this, people claim that Sony has lost the console war; jumping to an invalid conclusion. Keep in mind, the 360 was released in November of 2005, a year earlier than the release of the PlayStation 3. A lot of people couldn’t wait to get into the “next gen” world, and this, in turn, caused a wave of people buying the console because friends owned it. With total 360 sales nearing 38 million, and Sony closing in on 32 million (according to VGChartz, which isn’t an entirely reliable source, but the numbers are close enough for a relative sales figure within the realm of reality).

That being said, the 360 has been out for about 50 or so months, with the PS3 being out for about 38. Doing the math, that would mean the PS3 sells about 840,000 units a month (remember, the console was a staggering $600 at one point, too), with the 360 selling 760,000 per month (keep in mind, this is just total number of consoles sold over the number of months since release, there are slow months and there are big months (last calendar quarter of last year, the PS3 sold over 6.5 million consoles alone)). At this rate, within the next calendar year’s months (going by this number, and counting between March and December, being 9 months), the PS3 could potentially sell 7.56 million consoles, with the 360 selling 6.84 million.
