On competition: "We don't care."
On PS3 Progress: "Right now ... we can't manufacture enough blue laser diodes for our PlayStation 3s. But we will resolve that,"
Really? How, exactly? I mean christ man, to say you don't care about your competition, then grudgingly admit you're having trouble getting the basic parts for an already botched launch is just about as ass backwards as it can get.
But ultimately, what is the PS3's biggest obstacle? It might be the PS2 itself, as this editorial outlines. And it's absolutely right. The PS2 is cheap, available, has a huge library of great titles with quite a few more down the line (FFXII, God of War 2, Tales of the Abyss, just to name a few). I can't imagine any solid reason you could give anyone to get a PS3 over a PS2 at this point.
Don't throw out those gamecube controllers/wavebirds! Nintendo has confirmed that not only can they be used with all the GC titles on the Wii, but certain other games may make use of them as well (quite possibly virtual console titles, but upcoming Wii games like Smash Dojo have also been previously mentioned).
Even more good news on the Wii front: While the friend code system is still going to be used, it should only be one code per console, as opposed to per title like it is on the DS. This should make the system much smoother.
And I did finally catch Fearless today, and it was pretty damn good. The action was amazing, and it had actually had a pretty good story, even if the acting was pretty stiff (but hey, you don't go see Jet Li movies for good acting). Again, I highly doubt this is the last martial arts movie he'll do, but if it is, it's a very fine note to end it on.
