So upon reading my feeds this morning, I’ve come across about 100 different articles about the Playstation Move (this is out of maybe 120 since I checked Google Reader last night). Now, I know that this is something revolutionary (I don’t even know if I’m being sarcastic here), but can we tone down the amount of news that we’re posting about things? And yes, I realize the irony that this post is going to show up in a feed somewhere…. Google News tells me that in the last hour, just under 3000 items have been posted regarding this product, and that’s only for sites that have been indexed!
I enjoy a new announcement as much as the next person, but for something that we’ve had prototype images and tons of hints about (and in contrast with the rest of the world, is relatively unimportant), do we really need to stop the presses? Space your announcements out during the course of this week, perhaps. I seriously doubt people are glued to their computers waiting for more news about this thing.
Got an invite to the SC2 Beta yesterday from my good friends at Blizzard (i.e. I won the lottery….). Installed it, cranked up a 1v1 game and was instantly reminded of my childhood. While my buddies didn’t seem to appreciate the subtle differences or the fact that the game tries to remain true to it’s roots, I had a fun 30 minutes (although I’m still as bad at StarCraft as I was in the 90s). More to come as I have time to play it (that is, if I don’t get to into FFXIII).
