I have to admit that I was rather unhappy with Sony when they pushed back the launch of the PS3. So unhappy, in fact, that I sold my PS2, purchased an Xbox, and began a 5-year boycott of all of Sony’s products (TV’s, PC’s, cell phones, etc). With the demise of HD-DVD and BluRay ‘winning’ the latest physical medium battle, as well as my boiling hatred of Sony seemingly cooled, I’ve decided that a boycott seems silly. I can’t afford a PS3 even at $299 right now anyway. Besides, both consoles are now priced at an affordable level for the average consumer.
At any rate, I’m a big fan of tech reviewers that 1) know what they are talking about, 2) use actual demonstration as proof, and 3) utilize common sense when making judgements. That’s why I was very excited to find someone (or a group of people) that took the 2 ‘heavy hitters’ (sorry, Wii) from this generation of consoles and placed them on a level playing field. The guys and gals over at TechnoBuffalo are putting out a series of videos in the form of ’rounds’ as these 2 ‘price’-fighters are duking it out. This video was done recently, as there is footage of the DIRT2 demo and Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Here is Round 1. Enjoy.
