A very brief post for tonight after a busy and eventful day (also being my birthday)!
Last night, my wife got me a PlayStation 3 Slim with Call of Duty: Black Ops and Gran Turismo 5 as a brilliant present for my birthday and Christmas. It’s notably brilliant as not only the console itself is capable of 3D Blu-ray disc playback but also 3D games that will work with the new television. Luckily for me, CoD: BO and GT5 both support 3D which will certainly make for an interesting gaming experience.
For those that don’t know, I have been gaming for ages. In a prior blog entry about my prior gaming experiences available here I also touched on how 3D gaming in general is still in its infancy but could setup the next generation consoles for success if it takes off. Personally, I like the idea of a potentially immersive gaming experience on the Panasonic Viera 50″ plasma 3D television so hopefully it will live up to the buzz.
As is customary, I will be doing unboxing and preview videos of the device itself so if you have anything that you might want to know about please let me know and I’ll do my best to cover it off. I’ll also be keen to play with and against others on a social basis (I’m looking at you DJC) as online multiplayer settings are where most of the action is these days.
As always, stay tuned!
