>The Future of Video Games

This is a video (sorry, no embed link provided) presented by AMD showing off what two of their newest chips and chipset can do inside of a singular PC. Holy testicles, this is crazy. Now I’m really gonna feel guilty about killing Derrick in GTA IV…

AMD described it thusly: “you won’t just play movies, you’ll play in them” which would sound cheesy and ring hollow if it wasn’t for the live demonstration of playing inside of what looked exactly like a movie.

>Sony PS3 has Inferior GPU to Xbox 360

Interesting…although do consider the source. I didn’t know that Sony switched to an nVidia 7800 GPU before production, I thought it was all Cell processors in it, including GPU as planned. That’s too bad because when everyone talks about the untapped potential power of the PS3 that’s specifically in regards to the “newness” of the Cell processor. So basically, graphically, there’s not any untapped power as an nVidia 7800 is already outmoded. Even the current top-of-the-line nVidia chips aren’t as powerful as ATI ones. So that untapped potential is really relegated to the CPU.

Basically, the graphics won’t get much better but the CPU will be able to handle something more complex for the main processor like AI for enemies. That’s really too bad since the PS3 is apparently a pain in the ass to develop for because of the Cell chip. More work for no gain seems a bit of a downer for developers and gamers.

It’s still a cheap blu-ray player although that won’t mean anything eventually as the PS2’s DVD playback capabilities were quickly eclipsed by better and cheaper standalone players. Plus the future of media is digital, not in discs so I’m not sure if this is a good reason to buy it even now.

>Every Mortal Kombat Fatality in 6 Minutes


A lot of these are very slight variations. I remember being in middle school and thinking how awesome it was that there were so many but now I realize I’m looking through a rose-tinted and blood-stained lens.

>GTA IV: Best-Selling…Thing, Ever.


“Grand Theft Auto IV’s first week performance represents the largest launch in the history of interactive entertainmen”t, and we believe these retail sales levels surpass any movie or music launch to date.

>Tetris Battle Gaiden


Tetris with characters who have different special moves? I’m there. Found the game on eBay. Now, who’s got an SNES I can borrow?
