Like an excited kid at xmas time, I sat up last night waiting for the information to trickle from the Sony press conference in Culver City, where the PS3 was being revealed for the first time. After last weeks launch of the XBox 360 before the assembled hipsters on MTV, I wondered just how Sony would respond.
Then suddenly, Kaboom! – the information came thick and fast, as everything from details of the system architecture, to images of the new console began to hit the net. Joystiq went down, Engadget struggled under the load, and GameSpot and IGN seemed slow with their updates.
I would have gone to bed at this point, but then details of PS3 games started pouring out too, and in my excitement I had to read each scrap of info before I finally hit the sack at close to two.
It’s probably going to be a year and a half before I get my hands on one of these things, and I’m going to be counting the days. Roll on the next generation.
