Peta got beef with Mario

Animal rights group Peta (people for the ethical treatment of animals) has a problem with everyone favourite Italian Mario. They say that by Mario wearing a Tanooki suit in Super Mario 3D Land is sending a message that it’s OK to wear fur. I’m for animal rights but this is just stupid! Nintendo responded by saying that these light-hearted and magical transformations give Mario abilities and make his games fun to play and that it makes no statement beyond the games themselves.

Is the Wii up to real gaming?

Wii Console

When I speak to people now, I ask what console they have and what they play on. I mostly get Xbox or PS3 but never Wii. Why is this? Well when the Wii first came out we were all like ‘wow that’s amazing!’, but now with the greatly superior Xbox Kinect and the Playstation Move it looks to be out classes. So what will happen to the Wii? My guess is it will die out like so many other consoles before it, and with the new ‘Wii u’ on the way it looks increasingly likely. But do not sell it or throw it away yet, for it is so good for parties and get together. Plus with the likely withdrawal of the Wii, comes a great reduction in the prices of games!

Playstaion Vita

I don’t normally do Sony blogs but, good news! The release date for the greatly anticipated Playstation Vita has been confirmed as the 22nd February 2012 for North America, Europe, Australia and Latin America. This is gaming platform is going to rival the generally rejected Nintendo 3DS, even though the Vita isn’t 3D! The console will be available as: a Wi-Fi only model (£229.99) or a combined Wi-Fi and 3G model (£279.99).

Playstation Vita

The new Playstation Vita is the follow-up from the ‘PSP’ which was a big hit, selling 70 million units worldwide. The New console has a five-inch OLED touch screen, a rear touch pad, rear and front cameras and two analogue control sticks. All games will be available to download from the internet, but some will be sold as a ‘slot-in-card’ sold in shops.

An impressive range of titles has already been reveled for the console including variations of Assassins Creed, Call of Duty and Little Big Planet. About 80 titles are already in production for the console.

The console has 4 social networking capabilities, a video chat, Facebook and Twitter access, and a close proximity data sharing service named ‘Near’ which allows Vita owners to communicate and automatically swap data. There will also be a compatibility with the PS3 to play games and communicate.
