Actually, one more thing caught my eye ... "If only Sony was this inept in 1999 we'd all be playing Dreamcast 2 right now." Look, I love my Dreamcast, I created a whole site dedicated to systems like the Dreamcast. I mean, I play my Dreamcast quite a bit, especially when I have friends over (it has ...

Some amusing commentary on UK Resistance about the PS3 Launch! It illustrates the inflated prices we have to tolerate :roll: Although the pound really kicks some booty when importing retro goodies from America :D While it's a funny article, it's not actually that accurate. Given the price and launc...

Graphics may only be graphics, but they are a big reason people upgrade to a new system. I would not downplay the importance of eye candy, it is one of the reasons people are willing to spend their money on games. Like it or not. I would agree that it's game play over graphics, but there's no reaso...

Ahh true but my dvd player is actualy quite small seing as its Sony Picot player lol possibly the only things bigger than the 360 in my room (bar furniture) are the TV and the CDi and thats it and they take up 2 of my 3 shelves in the unit while my slimline PS2 and the Picot are on the 3rd, never a...

Yea just slightly bigger but well I think the 360 is big enough as it is, I preffer tings to me more, slimline or to actually fit in with the rest of the things I have in the unit for the TV so for my tastes im not exagerating as they are huge compared to my space requirements. As for the design it...

Have any of you actually seen the size of the PS3 in person ?? ITS HUGE ... reminds me a bit of a 400 series cd-i player stacked ontop of a 220 in size .. well maybe a lil bigger. Not exactly space saving technology so I think im going to wait for this particular system to drop in size. And well IF...

It's easy to make fun of the Jaguar or the 3DO, but that doesn't mean there aren't good games for the consoles. That's a nice sentence to quote again ;) You're a very friendly man, Cyril, I really appreciate that. And while I'm sometimes irritated by the type of CD-i reviewing done by Chad and Tom ...

It's nice to see communities rise up out of these old systems, but it's frustrating when you can only go so far with one idea. No matter how good the webpage and writing is, there's kind of a cap when it comes to people that are interested in one defunct system. At least, that's what I've found. Lu...

The problem for me is that the PSP simply isn't, as the last P suggests, portable. I don't feel comfortable carrying around an expensive piece of kit that's probably gonna last 5 hours of battery life and won't fit in any of my available pockets. Whilst on the other hand just the other day whilst w...

In my eyes 3DO is kind of a Chicken and Egg scenario. My aim is to build an open 3DO community with 3DO ZERO , then who knows what this project could spawn? Maybe it'll inspire new websites, blogs, whatever. At least it draws attention to the system and provides a place for like minded gamers to ga...

Especially Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Probably the only reason I'd buy a PSP! Guess I'll have to wait until it comes down to £30! :D You've got to be kidding me! There are PLENTY of reasons to buy a PSP. In fact, I wouldn't even say Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops is the best PSP game out there....

The 3DO is one of those systems I would really like to spend more time covering. However, it's somewhat difficult to find people who own the system and are interested in writing about it. It would be nice to have more resources available for the 3DO, it's just a matter of finding people that are in...

No, this is my first GBA compatible. I'm very happy with it as well. You have to understand £30 is the average price of a brand new PC game, so picking up a brand new Micro was hard to resist! Just in time as well because many stores are clearing out the old GBA/Micro stock it's easy to buy the lit...

Not sure about where you live, but here in the States the X360 isn't that expensive. In Europe and especially the UK we get inflated prices compared to the US. If you hold down a decent job then the PS3 is equivalent to a weeks wages whilst the XBOX 360 would be around four days and Wii about two a...
