The jumping on the bed edition of...Tuesday!

We'll start with the bad.

Does Red Steel suck? Wii. To sum up the review: Graphical disappointments, run-of-the-mill FPS action, boring.

That's too bad. =(

Sony really doesn't care about their competitors. Or making improvements over their competitor's blunders. It looks like no one told them the secret of the "background download". Because the PS3 doesn't do it. Well, they did manage to make it worse. If downloads aren't completed, they have to be re-downloaded COMPLETELY. Yeah, no partials.

New York Times says the PS3 is *drum roll* not that great. PS3fanboy came with the appropriate lack-of-backed-up-retort (for the moment). Is anyone surprised at this news? Don't we come to expect this from launch consoles?

I have to take quotes from that article:
In that sense it often feels as if the PlayStation 3 can'’t walk and chew bubble gum at the same time.

The PS3'’s whole online experience feels tacked-on and unpolished. On the Xbox 360 each user has a single unified friends list, so you can track your friends and communicate with them easily, no matter what game you are in. On the PlayStation 3 most games have their own separate friends list and some have no friends function at all. There is a master list as well, but in order to communicate with anyone on it, you have to quit the game you are playing.

As Mr. Grant of Joystiq put it: “"Maybe in six months it'’ll be finished. Maybe by next fall IÂ'll be able to do all the cool stuff. I'm still kind of waiting."”

Well, in lighter news, Small Arms is FINALLY here tomorrow. And a low-budget-noise-canceling-mod has been "made" for Wireless Headset owners.

On that note, I must say that the 360 wireless headset I received yesterday is the most comfortable headset I've ever worn. I love it. I just hope they figure out the random noise problems. For those who don't know, the timed beeps are there just to inform you that you are muted.

In any case, it looks like my dreams of a Wii and a PS3 will be delayed past the holiday season. It's time for us to purchase a new bed. They come at a price of a PS3 and Wii combined. =\ (no, I didn't jump on the old one until it broke)
