Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Wow big news – Nintendo have today snuck out a press release that announces a new 3D handheld that will be the successor to the Nintendo DS/DSi.

The new handheld has the temporary name ‘Nintendo 3DS’ and will feature 3D effects without the need to wear glasses. More details will be made available at this years E3. Despite working in the games industry for nearly 10 years I still haven’t had the opportunity to go to E3. Maybe this year?

Battlefield Bad Company 2

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

I’ve been a big fan of the Battlefield series ever since Battlefield 1942, and can’t think how many hours I’ve spent playing it. So I’m particularly pleased that my copy arrived on my desk a few minutes ago, the day before it’s due out in the shops. Thanks Game!

Can’t wait to get stuck into this at the weekend!

Epic PS3 Fail

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Looks like if you own one of the old-style PS3s you’re out of luck as of yesterday – there’s some kind of bug in the calendar software that means it’s unable to properly handle today’s date, meaning if you even switch the console on it can leave to save-game loss, loss of trophies, inability to play online and various other shenanigans.

I’m interested to see how Sony will fix this – will they be able to push out a path over the network when people can’t connect in the first place?

Here’s one particularly unhappy customer who just wants to “eat cupcakes and shoot noobs on Call of Duty” – poor guy.

Edit: it looks like the issue has been fixed, about 24 hours after it started.
