The next generation of gaming part II (Continued from last week's posts by our guest blogger and digital expert)
In my first post on the next generation of gaming I talked about Microsoft's new gaming console th XBox 360.
Now I will talk about Sonys next generation console the Playstation 3.
This console is heading in the same direction as the xbox 360, boasting brilliant graphics, multimedia features, use of HDTVs(high definition TVs) online gaming and loads of memory.
The ps3's graphics are actually supposed to be even better than the xbox 360s, using a new technology called blue ray.
The ps3 is definetly going to be popular because of Sony's huge fanbase from the bestselling ps2 console.
But I don't think this is enough.
All Sony and Microsoft are doing is making games with excellent graphics, that will be expensive to develope, and throwing in a bunch of multimedia features that might overwhelm a new gamer.
But the thing is even with all these cool features it all comes down to gameplay the xbox 360 and the ps3 just won't provide that.
All they are really providing are good graphics.
So, where is the good gameplay going to come from?
I will explain about Nintendo's next generation console in my next and final post.
Thanks for reading and i hope i haven't bored you with my knowledge of games.
(PS I wasn't bored but I didn't understand much of it but it is v. clever Dr Kate)
