Microsoft are watching out now, yes?

Posted by SpaghettiOh on Monday, August 24th, 2009 in Gaming Life /News

It’s no question that Sony has nearly isolated themselves in the video game industry. Rushing an overpriced console on an anticipative people with absolutely no software to make up for the complete lack of profit on the console was nothing short of a poor business move. The integrated Blu-ray made it a cheap and upgradable DVD player in comparison, but $599 for a new game console was a budget dent very few people braved.

The tables are slowly turning and Sony is finally getting the idea into their heads that there is this race going on. A new version of the PS3 is on its way out. It’s slimmer, quieter, and most importantly, cheaper. The PS3 Slim hits shelves late this month or early next month, and at $299 is putting some serious pressure on the 360. Now they just need a reason for people to buy it other than what’s probably kept it alive all this time: Blu-ray.

Here is a commercial airing in Japan…

I…am honestly not sure where to start this article. It simply amazes me that anyone could be shocked by this news. I mean, I could have never imagined feeling the effects of a world-wide recession in a bullet proof game industry!!!

Come on, seriously? OK everyone, let’s travel back in time a little bit to the good ol’ 80s. You guys ready?! HERE WE GO!!!


News Flash: Phelps destroys my calorie intake with energy drinks alone

Posted by SpaghettiOh on Thursday, August 14th, 2008 in News

Michael Phelps is my hero. No, not because he’s won eleven gold medals, but because he has the calorie intake that would make a normal person obese in about 57 hours. A mere 12,000 calories and a five hour, six day workout regimen is all it takes to be an Olympic champion. That’s easy! All I have to do is have an eight course dinner five times a day and I’d be set. The energy drink this guy consumes at lunch has more calories than my entire day when I’m in graze mode! WTF!

Apparently you need a mouth like a grunt-fish too. I bet this kid puts sharks to shame. If a shark tried to race this guy, the shark would shit himself and then proceed to self-consumption starting with his tail until he imploded, leaving a watery cloud of blood, guts, and shark shit in Phelps’ wake. Good grief! Who would want to race this guy?! God forbid if it was a country that severely looked down upon the loss of an Olympic event. There’d be a lot of dead swimmers in a couple weeks…
