Nov 20 xbox, playstation by Ebrahim Sadien
If you are a Standard bank credit card holder you can purchase a PlayStation 3 for R2849.50 which is about a 50% discount on the retail price. This is the 60GB version which is compatible with PlayStation 2 games. It also comes with two games as well as a T-shirt and cap.
The catch of course is that there are only 30 available so you had better warm up your credit card now.
I have read the article on Penny-Arcade regarding the reviews of Assassin’s Creed. The reviews have been mixed and Gabe says that it is because reviewers have been rushed in playing the game. I understand that there is pressure and intense competition to post a review first but there is little point in being first if the quality of the review is compromised. A review is simply one person’s opinion of a game and if that opinion is incomplete and inaccurate then there is no reason to give it any weight.
With the sheer volume of releases at this time of year, trying to do reviews which do justice to the games must be a complete nightmare.
Crysis eats PCs and its official. I was reading the article over at Gamespot, they mentioned that when they cranked up all the visual settings to maximum their test rigs started to drop frames. This is horrifying.
It is all well and good to have a game which pushes the limits of GPU technology but this is nuts. If I spent R3000.00 on a graphics card and it could not handle a game I would feel cheated.
You do have the option of reducing the settings so that your PC does not catch alight but where is the fun in that?
