Xbox's Revenge: 10 worst PS3 ports

I remember being annoyed in noticing that multi-platform releases on the Xbox seemed to suffer in general because of the wussy-specked PS2. After seeing that games like Halo 2 and Ninja Gaiden be gorgeous and possible on the original Xbox, a lot of PS2 games were hard to look at. You could always tell when graphics were dumbed down so they would function on the PS2. Early Splinter Cells and Indigo Prophecy were good examples.

It looks like the PS3 will suffer a similar fate on this iteration. Better graphics performance is still hypothetical as far as the PS3 is concerned, but since the processor is a little bit more capable we'll go along with it. covers a self-proclaimed top 10 360-to-PS3 ports that standardized the term "Epic Fail." FEAR, Splinter Cell, Lost Planet, Tony Hawk, and Orange Box all made the list. The problem with each port is highlighted for each game in the article, so gander on!

If Silent Hill has characters like this, I missed out

That is freakin' weird. An example of the in-game character is buried several comments down if you're curious.

I've heard the Silent Hill games were freaky-deeky-crazy, but I never really tried any of them. Condemned and Resident Evil 4 were the first "horror" games for me to get into. Besides Friday the 13th on the C64. (Yeah. I'm old.)

One of these days I'll have to give it a try.


Phantasy Star on the PSP? Sweet!

I know. "Old news".

Sega should get with the program and give up with the sad MMO attempts. Phantasy Star 5 is where the series needs to go. A mentally tangible story, a tactful battle system, and unique characters.

In any case, I'll probably buy this. After Crisis Core, I'm finally enjoying my PSP. That means playing it once a week as opposed to not at all. LOL

Itagaki leaves Tecmo and starts suing

See my coverage of Itagaki's departure over at EGN.

I'm sad to see him go. I love Tecmo and the games he's created, but he has to watch out for his own interests. The apology to fans was good to see.
