PlayStation is old and despite that many people own one and
that includes us, although if you asked why we'd likely say
several things. Firstly there are hundreds of games and a lot
of variety in them, not just useless arcade clones. Secondly
there's the price, both games and the console are now extremely
cheap and often well worth the money. The last thing is simply
because it's a fashion accessory, people just expect you to
own one, women and men alike.
the PlayStation2 looks set to break onto the British shores
and ECTS'2000 was the first place to see just what the mighty
Sony had to say about it all. Being keen console gamers we lifted
our dreamcast/pc pride and wondered over and inside the grey
and white colours of 'Sony Central'.
speaking it was hard to see anything that a Dreamcast or GeForce2
couldn't handle, although that remains to be seen later after
its been launched. One thing's for sure, the chipset inside
the PS2 is not only fast, but carries some of the most special
effect rich visuals you've ever seen.
not much more to say about it until it hits the streets around
Christmas or early 2001, although it looks like Dreamcast is
dead =). We love our DCs, but the PS2 has got more intelligent
games than the Dreamcast and is aimed more at adults than kids,
which simply means games can be more graphic and adult.
it'll fair against either the X-Box or the Dreamcast we'll have
to wait and see, although with nearly a year of catching up
to do it's still got a long way to go once released.
