Playstation 4:The Five Year Plan

ImageIn a interview with EDGE Sony World Studios vice president Micheal Denny talks about the lessons learned from the difficult launch of the PS3.

He also talks about the PlayStation 4 origin. How Sony’s PS3 difficult launch would influence the launch of the PS4 and how the stakes are for the PS4 and Sony as a company.

Quoting from the interview:

“I think the starting point is you go back to when we launched PlayStation 3 and I think it’s fair to say that the landscape in terms of gaming has totally changed since those days. It’s so much more competitive but it’s so much more proliferated in terms of the amount of people who are gaming and the amount of devices they are gaming on. And in a way we have to see that as an opportunity. I think as we’ve said we’re going to be very focused on gamers and gaming and offer an experience that is differentiated, that is high-end, but in doing that we have to embrace where gaming’s gone. And that’s why we have to embrace lots of ideas such as integration, that we are integrating into many other areas of gamer’s lives, casual gamers and gaming-on-the-go as well.”

I have read that the new console will have a Blu-ray drive. But will the drive be on future models? More and more games are being available for download with special offers. In a article at Forbes, Shuhei Yoshida talks on how Sony plans to move more and more to the digital side. This is not good news for company’s like GameStop, EB Games and us the consumer that buy used games to save a few bucks. That being said will that not stop gamers from buying the new console? Nay.

PlayStation 4 release date 4Q of 2013(that be Christmas)

The Gift

One of the things I have started to enjoy is searching the web for interesting video and sharing them. I think this is one to share.
This short sci-fi films takes place in Russia. This film has more that 20 CGI effects and a great chase scene. First of all just enjoy the short and at the amazing work done it. Forget to look for any meaning because if you do I believe you will not like it. Sometime folks a movie if just a movie and is meant to be enjoyed.
Oh yeah this short was done almost a year ago. Still deserves a look.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Exclusive Teaser Trailer

First of all I do not really think this trailer is exclusive anymore. Hell you probably can see it on every other blog and entertainment show by now. But what the hey, I want in.

I did see the first movie and to my amazement I did enjoy it. Unlike that other series with the sparkling vampires I am looking forward to see the next movie. The teaser trailer does tease and hopefully gets you in the mood to watch the movie. Now for use men it does hurt that Jennifer Lawrence if very attractive but the major thing about her,  she can fucking act. The trailer to me shows that we will get more story and less action which is fine with me. Do not get me wrong I love the action but a little more of the characters and what is going on would be great. Hey if you want more kids killing kids then check out Battle Royale. That be some good killing there.

Pacific Rim-First TV Spot

Unless you have been hiding under a rock since the Zombie apocalypse started. You have to know that Guillermo Del Toro new movie, Pacific Rim will be coming out July 11 of this year. The few clips I have seen this looks like a amazing film. Yeah I know I have to wait until it comes out to be sure it will be amazing. But hey man giant robots fighting monsters what is not to like. Watch this clip and tell me you do not get a little nerd wood.

Elysium-Official Trailer

Elysium is the new film from director Neil Blomkamp. I you do not know who Neil Blomkamp they you may know of his first major film “District Nine”. If you have not seen District Nine then for same.

Elysium stars Matt Damon in a bleak future of 2154 were the privileged live on Elysium and the rest of us poor slobs life on earth. I personally do not think we will be around by that time. But?
