One of my bothan spies who secured my PS3 and arranged to have it sent to me, is currently securing my Wii as we speak - after seeing all the Wii commercials on TV of late, my wife insisted that we get one ^^;
I'll still go to cover the queues lining for their Wii come December 2nd as somebody needs to go and entertain those folks camping out there.
As you can see from this pic - its a busy weekend for me what with poking around with the PS3 and setting up the MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo that just arrived.
The verdict? Prepare 5 changes of underwear and a mop to clean up all the skid marks you are going to leave behind. Fan bloody tastic. It does get a little hot and I did have to update the system software as soon as I turned it on but apart form that it really does rock!
I really like how the Playstation has become an online gaming machine without having to buy an extra peripheral like the PS2. You can download trail versions, addons and compete with friends online - my Playstation network id is dannychoodotcom - feel free to add me to your friends list ^^. You can add friends to your list and spy on their scores, gather together online to gang up on other players etc. I have not really dabbled in online gaming so this is a new experience for me and I like what I see.
Just uploaded some clips or Ridge Racer 7 with my crap video camera to my video stream at YouTube.
And before I continue, dont forget to check out some of the coverage so far.
Again - crap screenshots because of the AV cable but check out my video stream at YouTube to get an idea of what the graphics are like.
Day off tomorrow - see you Monday.
