“After all guys, it’s all about the games, isn’t it?”
Running off the momentum that started at E3 last year, Sony continued to soar at the conference, for the most part at least. With the departure of Jack Tretton, there was a void that couldn’t be filled by the other host of the night.
The day is almost upon us, grab your wallets!
Today, the PSN store updated, and Sony added a digital pre order option for Ultra Street Fighter 4. Which, comes with a custom theme and the Udon designed alternate costumes for Poison, Rolento, Hugo, Elena, and Decapre.
It’s priced to move, and it’s not even Black Friday.

Is it time to Microsoft to cash out of console gaming?

More individuals need to keep an open mind.
As I browse the web, I can’t help but notice reputable sites like IGN, Forbes, and Gamespot, I can’t help but notice “reputable” and other sites out there speak on how the PS4 has sold 5.4 million units, how the Xbox One can’t output 1080p and 60fps. While, I think its clear that I am more on the side of Microsoft; mainly because its an American product which I think most people [in my circle] forget, I am NOT oblivious to the amazing product that Sony has.
But, It amazes me how desperate people (blogs, websites, etc etc) are quick to point out sales numbers and other info on a console (XB1) that is only in 13 territories for now!
