Rumors have more or less stated that the PlayStation 3 won't make its Spring launch, and now it's official. The PS3 is coming in November. November of 2006 will have the PS3 hitting store shelves a full year behind the Xbox 360, which launched in late November of 2005. Without specific word on when Nintendo plans on releasing their Revolution, it's hard to say whether or not this will make the PS3 the last console of this generation to reach the market. We're all excited about Sony's announcement, though, read the full article to find out why...

Heading into the Spring season, rumblings are growing that Sony won't be able to hit their announced PS3 release date of "Spring 2006." Next-Gen.biz is reporting that delays in finalizing the Blu-Ray drive could force Sony to push back the PS3's release. GameSpot is also reporting that potential supply problems could make it difficult for Sony to mass produce the drive. Both articles quote similar sources, both claim that Sony has acknowledged the potential for delays. It's our suspicion that both reports are based on the same data, subject to varying types of interpretation, but either way you read it makes you wonder about the accuracy Sony's original release window.

They are one of the often unsung heroes of the game development industry. But the consistently high quality of titles has proven numerous times why Treasure is one of the best game development houses in existence. With such fan classics as Gunstar Heroes and Astro Boy in their library, Treasure's games have created a rabid fanbase of twitch gamers and import junkies. Our man, Robert Brooks, has a retrospective of Treasure's games along with five classic retro reviews, each going live over the next week. Check it out here.

Contrary to comments made by Sony Vice President Phil Harrison in November of 2005, Playstation Magazine is reporting that Sony Entertainment is busy at work creating an online service designed to rival Xbox Live. This is good news for Sony fans that were concerned the PS3 might carry over the PS2's continuing online strategy... which means none. Sony has repeatedly committed itself to taking the PS3 online, but has released little information about how they plan on doing that. Assuming Phil Harrison wasn't lying in November, we can only assume that the Playstation's online system will still be mostly up to developers, not Sony itself. Sony, of course, won't comment on rumors.
game: Unreal Tournament 2007
news | 01/23/06 | Shawn Rider
Unreal Tournament 2007 serves two purposes: It continues the tradition of cyber-athletic quality FPS gaming, and it showcases the amazingly beautiful Unreal 3 engine,in development now from Epic Games. Evolutionary is the word for UT 2007: The graphics are better, the vehicles are bigger, and the online multiplayer is even more insane. Check out this quick preview and these amazingly beautiful screenshots for more.

Microsoft has received criticism for sticking to the DVD9 format for the Xbox 360. Concerned gamers point out that the 8.5 gigabytes of storage may not be enough to hold next-generation games. Sony's PS3 will use blu-ray, a format capable of storing several times the information of DVD9. But how big are Xbox 360 games? And how much will they grow, really? We take a look at the size of original Xbox titles to see how much they grew between 2001 and 2005, and compare them to the size of the Xbox 360 launch titles to make an educated guess about the DVD9's future needs. The conclusion? Well, you'll have to read to find out, but it generally makes Microsoft look like they know what they're doing. Don't enter a forum debate about blu-ray without reading this article.
game: Fight Night Round Three
preview | 01/05/06 | Tristan Mayshark
Hot on Xbox Live this week is a free demo of Fight Night Round 3, EA's highly anticipated boxing title. Fight Night Round 3 has gotten a lot of press lately as a PS3 launch title, and the demos EA have shown us are incredible. So how does the Xbox 360 version compare to the teasers we've seen for PS3? Pretty much the same. The graphics are amazing and the action looks like it holds up nicely, given the limited demo. Check out Tristan's preview, and then go download it to your Xbox 360!

GelTabz are an unlikely must-have enhancement. They are so incredibly simple they'll have you wondering why more game controllers don't make use of their innovative design. But they are so effective that once you give them a shot, you won't want to play without them. As natural a fit as a baseball glove and a baseball bat, GelTabz are definitely worth a closer look. Get the full review here.

The 4th Asian Game Show & Digital Entertainment Expo Asia 2005 in Hong Kong might not be showing off anything cool from Microsoft, but they've certainly got something from Sony. GamesFirst editor Aaron Stanton takes a quick peek at the show floor the day before the expo opens to the public, and reports on the warm fuzzy feelings he got at seeing the PlayStation 3 logo being raised above Sony's booth. AGSDEE might not be as well known in the west as E3 or CES, but it's an opportunity to see hands-on what Sony plans to offer. You'll want to keep an eye open as the four day exposition kicks off.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 will both use HD as the standard for all games on those systems. So, what do gamers need to know as they consider upgrading from the old antenae and tin foil combo to High Definition Television? Jeremy gives you the lowdown right here: From the basics of HDTV television and numbers to choosing an aspect ratio, display technology, and even what cords to use. Some call it in-depth. Others stand speechless in awe.

Sony recently confirmed to Playstation Magazine that they will utilize a non-centralized system for online multiplayer on the PS3, sticking with their departure from Microsoft's Xbox Live or Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connection services. Sticking with an online gaming strategy similar to how the PS2 currently handles online gaming means that game publishers have much greater flexibility with their online content. It also means that gamers will need different accounts for each game they play online, and also makes it more difficult for developers to insure an even playing ground in online multiplayer.
game: Project Offset
preview | 10/26/05 | Shawn Rider
Every once in awhile an indy game comes along that really makes you sit up and take notice. After seeing titles like Alan Wake or Darwinia developed by independent groups without the immediate support of a publisher, we're not surprised to see Project Offset, an epic fantasy first-person shooter in development by four individuals who want to play a really cool game (which is the best motivation for making a game). We're not surprised, but we're definitely impressed.

Never a crew to let a single viewpoint dominate (we're still cleaning up the offices from the Great Console Wars of 01/02), our man Chris Martin has stepped up to the metaphorical typewriter. Those of you who find the Nintendo Revolution a bit too syrupy-sweet and dreamily perfect most likely share some of Chris' concerns.

With the announcement of the Revolution controller, Nintendo has proven that, at least some of the time, they really "get" it. Get what? Gaming. In a next-gen lineup that has been, frankly, a total snooze-fest, the Revolution has finally shown us a sliver of light, which we think will broaden into a bright new direction for game design to explore. While Sony and Microsoft are content to release platform upgrades, it looks like Nintendo is the only one attempting to move gaming to a new generation.
