Playstation Magazine Editor Slams on Playstation 3, Buying Xbox 360
Dana Jongewaard, Managing Editor of the Official Playstation Magazine has posted a fascinating story on her blog which sums up the public (negative) sentiment surrounding the forthcoming Sony Playstation 3. She even went so far as titling the article “Why I am buying a 360 this November.” The high price, forced Blu-Ray purchase and the relative void of exclusive titles at launch have driven her to “the dark side…” …when I know that a console’s direct competitors cost two-thirds or half of that price, it becomes harder for me to justify shelling out that kind of money–especially when I can probably get the Wii and the 360 combined for the cost of a PS3.

Head-to-Head Comparison Blu-ray Vs. HD DVD Titles
Hi-Def Digest has posted the first head-to-head reviews of three movies recently released in both Blu-Ray and HD DVD formats.

Is Directv’s HD Dvr Finally Coming?

Is Directv’s HD Dvr Finally Coming?
For those of us who have DirecTV’s HR10-250 TiVo, it’s a bittersweet reality that a new HD DVR has been in the works for quite some time.
