This article could be easier named “The Console War”. But if it would be as i wish, it would be a war with no winner. Actually, the winner would be the player, the daily gamer that could get the best out of all worlds. And we have in here the PC world, getting more and more expensive each 3-4 months, when a new GPU or CPU is released. Then we have the Playstation world, which Sony feeds on like a frenzy beast. PSx, PS2, PSP, PS3 are all shortcuts to a world that every gamer should know about. Then we have the new player, Microsoft. If it is an old player on PC world, on the consoles they’ve started recently with their Xbox console. And now they claim “world domination” with their Xbox 360 console. And finnally, we have the “oldest” player in the house: Nintendo. Who in the world doesn’t know what a NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube or Wii is ? Who will win ? Which one is now the recommended choice for a player ? Which one is worth investing in ? Well, read on and we shall see.

Well, it’s a statement almost true. There is no such thing as Wiimote for PS3, but this time Logitech almost made it possible. I am talking about Logitech MX Air. It looks like it was crafted from a piece of Playstation 3 (actually, the same black shiny dust atractive material), it works both as a mouse or pointer (wiimote style). It’s wireless of course, and it’s so easy you ask the same you did on PS3 gamepad: “Is this thing really working on a battery or is it alien technology ?”. Installing it on PC was a snap. And the bonus is, is working also with your old mouse. Now i am really happy, i can use my Logitech G5 while working on PC with intensive graphics, and when i move on my secondary screen (nVidia DualView setup on a plasma 42PV600), i can use MX Air with no trouble.

Desi este un articol mai vechi, am zis sa-l postez aici pt. placerea mea personala. Pe scurt, este un articol scris pt. forumul de pe ComputerGames (hi guys !) in frenezia dinaintea lansarii oficiale a Playstation 3. So, let’s start: Well, se apropie ziua lansarii. PS3 (Sony Playstation 3) este deja un nume pe buzele mai tuturor. Pana si vecina de bloc a auzit de nu stiu ce minunatie facuta de japonezi care mai ca nu-ti ghiceste gandurile… minunatie care, acum ca intraram si noi in Europa, o putem gasi in aceeasi zi de lansare precum mai marii si mai tarii nostrii vecini. Unii dintre voi poate au avut norocul sa puneti mana pe o consola US (110V), JAP (110V) sau Hong Kong (220V) si sa va distrati cu titluri NTSC. Ceilalti insa, care inca visati sa cumparati o consola PS3 oficial, cu garantie “la noi acasa”, cu acte in regula si nu de la matusa lui Gigel de pe okazii… care v-ati lovit de mai mult timp de problema unei console NTSC intr-o zona unde mai toate shop-urile vand jocuri PAL… care v-ati saturat de adaptoare/transformatoare de la 110V la 220V… well, voi ceilalti, de maine puteti fi happy ! PS3 SE LANSEAZA OFICIAL SI IN ROMANIA !
