When the PlayStation 3 launched, it did so at a ridiculous cost; $600 in the US, £425 in the UK and R6,599.95 here in South Africa. that is a lot of money for a console – made all the worse by then-PlayStation boss Ken Kutaragi saying that people should work two jobs to buy one. Sony, it seems, has learned from its mistake – and will be launching the PlayStation 4 at a much more affordable price-point.
I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for the annual VGA awards. Sure, you can decry the whole glitz and glamour of the event, that it’s not representative of the entire industry, but you can’t deny that they are fun. From Jack Black rocking up one year in full Brutal Legend garb, to the numerous new trailers and games teased, it’s still all in good fun. And it’s happening, later tonight.
