Now for the News…

18Nov06

Our top story today: next-generation gaming. In a recent turn of events, the Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii have or will be launched soon. The PS3, which boasts 1080p graphics, Blu-Ray, and the acclaimed Cell processor, was launched yesterday, Nov. 17, for a small sum of $600. Tomorrow the already-famous Nintendo Wii will launch for a much more practical $250. Even at 2:00 pm on the 18th, hungry Wii-ers are eager to get one of their own, setting up camp outside of Best Buy. Also, our first look at the Zune is good. At the local store display, the Zune was in full-function, operationg quite nice under my large thumbs. The menus were easy to read, it displayed the album art in a big picture, blending it in with the track info, and the big screen was quite bright. On the other hand, when I tried operating a Creative Zen V Plus (not even turned on), I couldn’t even press the center button. I also could not figure out how to operate the iRiver Clix, another story. A 4gb version has been announced, for $200. Th-th-th-that’s all for now, folks!

  2. Nice comparison. You forgot to mention that the PS3 is bulkier than the 360, and you can’t use the Wii in direct sunlight (http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/home-entertainment/sun-1-wii-sensor-bar-0-206340.php).
    Other than that really nice.
