I am a firm believer that every one of the current consoles has something to recommend it.
The Wii, of course, has a novel control method and a good number of interesting family games built around that method.
The XBox 360 has XBox Live Arcade, an increasingly solid game lineup, and the industry’s best multiplayer.
The PS3 has a Blu-Ray player and, as far as I am concerned, four games. Those games are: Ratchet and Clank, God of War 3, Flow, and Everyday Shooter.
However. God of War 3 isn’t out yet, Flow is a small game at best, and Everyday Shooter is not only a small game but is now available on Steam as well.
I am being completely honest when I say that Everyday Shooter is one of the reasons I was looking forward to buying a Playstation 3. And now it’s on my computer, and I have one less justification to buy that Blu-Ray player with a few games attached to it.
I swear, every time I have a reason to get excited about the Playstation 3, Sony does their absolute best to nullify it as quickly as possible. I have no idea what’s going on with Sony right now, but this is one of those cases where they should have offered an extra chunk of money just to get exclusive rights. Of course, if I were Jonathan Mak, I wouldn’t have taken it . . . so there we have it.
Yes, there will be a dissection, and yes, I am hard at work on another version of D-Net. Right now I’m off to play Everyday Shooter though.
