I’ve said time and time again that I like the PS3 over the x360 for various reasons (I hope to write an editorial at some point detailing this) but that Sony hasn’t yet delivered on the promises they made in the year or two leading up to launch.

Well, 2k8 is the year of the PLAYSTATION 3.

With big titles like Metal Gear Solid 4, LittleBigPlanet, Gran Turismo 5, and Disgaea 3 coming, not to mention things like Armored Core: for Answer, PLAYSTATION Home, Metal Gear Online, echochrome, and WipeOut HD, it looks like a good year to get yourself a PLAYSTATION 3.

I’m definitely jumping on the opportunity. My recommendation? Be different. Get a Ceramic White PS3, like I’m going to. At only $30 more than the domestic Black 40gb, the Japanese Ceramic White 40gb is a steal!

The new DUALSHOCK3 controllers look nice, and I won’t get into a shit-slinging match over them not coming with the system originally… They have their reasons, probably patent-related, and their initial ‘Oh well, you can’t have rumble AND motion sensing’ was probably just an attempt at saving face. Because it sounded better than “We’ve been having legal trouble regarding these force feedback patents for like a decade now.”

At any rate, my plans for the console are to import a 40gb Ceramic White PLAYSTATION 3, get a couple DUALSHOCK3 controllers, various cables, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (That’ll really make my dad’s year, he lurves GT.), and Armored Core for Answer. Maybe Eye of Judgment. Then I’ll wait for MGS4 and LittleBigPlanet.

In other PLAYSTATION news, SCEI released an echochrome demo for the PSP. The controls aren’t as smooth as I imagine the PS3 version’s SIXAXIS controls would be, but it’s a great play…albeit very short in demo form.

A peek inside the mad, mad, mind of Baka-chan. Animator, artist, hater of stupid people, and evil genius. Look upon the undoing of all order in the universe, and tremble.
