by Rowan Peter

Playing games has become a part of our lives. Players find games today a lot more interesting because they offer better plot, game play, graphics, and audio. I can remember the times when game consoles are only considered as a tool to entertain when there is nothing better to do. Now, playing games is the best way to entertain and there is nothing that can beat the entertainment provided by the consoles.

Sony PSP, Playstation, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, DS, DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL, and 3DS are the most popular game consoles today. Every game console is preferred by different types of gamers because they are offering different levels of enjoyment.

Sonys Playstation and PSP are known to be popular for gamers who love to play role-playing-games. With the help of their 3rd party game developers, Playstation was able to establish its name as the best game console for RPG games. The PS3 is also considered as the most luxurious game console that man has ever seen. With the most technologically advanced features, it is the only game console to offer full entertainment.

Microsoft Xbox 360 is the latest competitor in the gaming industry. It was only introduced 9 years ago, when Sega is still one of the famous game console manufacturers. Being a product of the largest computer-based company in the world, Xbox rapidly rise to the top, forcing a powerhouse to shut down its operation. With support from various 3rd party game developers, Xbox offers thousands of great games for everyone.

Finally, Nintendos latest game consoles. Nintendo started its legend 30 years ago with Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Donkey Kong, and being considered as the oldest operating game industry powerhouse. They continue to set the standards for full entertainment, and they have changed the way games are played once again when they released the first-ever game console to use motion sensors.

Three Things To Remember When Choosing A Game Console

10963313136 4160934866 m Three Things To Remember When Choosing A Game Console
by tandemsystemsltd

There are only three game consoles available in the market today. However, choosing the best console that will suit your gaming habits is a really hard task. Some people even end up purchasing the wrong console because they were overwhelmed with something that a particular game console offers. This article will be showing you three of the most important things that you need to remember when you are going to purchase a game console.

The most important factor that should be considered is the price of the console. Regardless of how good a game console is, it should not be purchased unless you can really afford to buy it. The price of game consoles range from $ 250 to $ 600 per unit. Some may offer a lower price by giving you a bundle deal or a special discount.

Graphics and audio engine is also another important factor that you need to consider. If you prefer more in-depth games then you need to go with the console that uses the most powerful graphics and audio engine. The advancement of the technology allows us to play games in a much different level compared to playing games before. Of course, added power of the engine also means more expensive consoles, which also drops to the first thing to consider budget.

Finally, the person that will be using the game console. Different types of players prefer different game consoles. Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 are the most popular consoles for hardcore gamers, while Nintendo Wii is popular for casual gamers. Xbox 360 for first-person shooting game hardcore fans, while Playstation 3 is for hardcore gamers who prefer role-playing games.

Always keep these things in mind because these will help you get the best console that will provide your expected level of entertainment. It will be useful especially now that the holiday season is just around the corner.

What?s Up with PlayStation 4

9038448268 dd39faaac5 m What?s Up with PlayStation 4
by insidethemagic

Back in the day, computer games were plain and had low-quality graphics and animation. However, computer technology advanced so quickly that games became more sophisticated and refined. Gaming consoles have improved sound and video quality. PlayStation enthusiasts can prove how technology has changed the way people play games. Creators of game consoles do not stop with their latest additions. The PlayStation 4 is one of the upcoming game consoles that are creating a buzz in the market now.

With the new game consoles nowadays, it is possible to pretend that you are looking at realistic images of the characters in the game. Players also have taken advantage of the greater flexibility of today’s gaming consoles.
One of the top companies the manufacture gaming devices is Sony. This multimillionaire company is known for its excellent graphics and sound technology with its high-tech televisions, laptops, digital cameras, and camcorders which are also popular in the “games” market. Since Sony released the new PlayStation, it has since then become popular in the market. PS4 is the latest addition in the PlayStation series.

The early promotions for PS4 have circled around the assumption that it will provide an excellent gaming experience to buyers. However, it has to be understood that people have to try the product before making judgments. By this time, there will be too much anticipation, as reports about possible features the new PlayStation has are all over the place. Customers will now have their expectations. These bits of information may have been leaked by the game developers, who are still currently working on the release of the game console later this year.

However, this might cause a little inconvenience to those who have purchased the PlayStation 3 because, they might not have yet used the latest existing PlayStation model to the fullest.

But since fanatics are loyal addicts and cannot wait, many may have already made reservations on the latest model. Preordering may be a good idea if you are a carefree consumer. The others should be careful, though especially considering the fact that the upcoming PlayStation may be sold at a very expensive price.

Nonetheless, without analyzing too much, one can say that the PS4 is going to be a highly sophisticated gaming device. Reports say that developers have integrated the game console with an advanced graphics chip and processor. The PS4 is also said to be equipped with HDMI port so playing games is possible with high definition television, which only enhances the playtime experience. Reports also say that it will be equipped with a flash card reader and an upgradable hard drive. These new features are expected to take the PlayStation 4 games further, but it seems as if it’s still too early to tell. However, you may still be able to play PS2 and PS3 games on the console because of the so-called backwards compatibility feature.  

Sony will actually release two configurations of the PS4—the basic and premium. Of course, the latter does have more advanced specifications. Such differences will affect the price too.
Buying a gaming console is considered by some as a waste of money, but for game lovers, it is a fine investment as people by them to enjoy and have fun. These devices are perfect to beat the boredom since hardly anyone gets bored when playing games. Playing games is also a good father-son bonding moment.

Can You Fix The Yellow Light of Death on a Playstation 3?

430373733 c955f26af9 m Can You Fix The Yellow Light of Death on a Playstation 3?
by Charlie Brewer

Article by Craig Brolin

Playstation 3 is one of the most popular game consoles. If your ps3 has a problem called the yellow light of death, you can fix it. For those who do not know how to fix the problem, they are likely to have a hard time fixing it. However, those who have an idea on how to go about the fixing process will find it a lot easier than those who do not. Here are a few tips that will help you fix this problem on your playstation 3.

In order to deal with a problem, you have to find out what the cause is. The yellow light of death problem can be caused by three main things. The console might have overheated, there might be problems at the powerbrick or the GPU might be having problems too. If you think that the game console has overheated, you can simply turn it off for some time. Overheating can happen when you play games that have bigger files than normal or when the machine runs for too long without stop. In case you think that the cause of the yellow light of death problem is the powerbrick, ensure that you check for any loose cables. To rectify the GPU, you can simply remove the hard-drive and put it back in about 3 times. These are just basic solutions. There are 2 more things that you can do in case these simple procedures do not work out for you.

You can send your ps3 back to Sony. Taking it back to the manufacturers will help you get a better one and have the problem rectified by experts. This sounds as a great option but you have to be very patient. You are lucky if your warranty has not expired as you will not be charged for the services. However, if your warranty has expired, you will have to pay to have the experts work on your game console. You also have to wait for up to 6 weeks to have your ps3 back. The minimum waiting period is usually 4 weeks. You can also look through the internet for better Playstation 3 Deals.

If taking the console back to the manufacturer does not sound as a good option to you, you can decide to repair it yourself. This is a popular option as most people will save a lot on time and money. You will be able to bargain on the price and also have the console back as soon as you want. The process is easy if you know how to do it. There is a repair guide that will guide you through the repair process, with which you can finish the job in an hour, if you follow the instructions carefully. It is recommended that you use a guide or else you will be doing guess work. In case you have a hard time fixing the problem, you can hire a hardware expert who will professionally do it for you at better Playstation 3 Deals.

Acquiring the Best Gaming Console in India

3815433376 24ebc0019f m Acquiring the Best Gaming Console in India
by THQInsider

Finding the best gaming console in India may not be that difficult if you compare gaming consoles while keeping a few things in mind. Your ultimate choice is going to depend on what kind of games you will want to play and possibly who besides you will be playing.

The most popular games today are well known for being family friendly and encourage health and fitness. If you are a really serious gamer you might compare gaming consoles that offer a wide range of games as well as an online gaming portal. You should know that not all game consoles are good for on line gaming. Many of the latest reviews will tell how positively impressed users are with the libraries and exclusives included which should be considered if you are going to find a good gaming console in India.

Many consoles like the Xbox and the Sony Playstation offer more than game function.

Capability to surf the web is a very popular feature. Many feature the ability for DVD and Blu-ray playback. However, often the most important factor is how realistic the graphics and action is. It is a great idea to visit a local store and get behind a game controller and test the console out before you buy. This is the perfect way to find out first hand if you are impressed or not.

One of the most common complaints by users is the controller. This is typically due to the controller not fitting well in the users hand or its design is too awkward to fit comfortably in the user’s hand. Sometimes the buttons on the controllers can be too small or placed outside of the user’s natural motion making it difficult to operate. These are all very important factors and going for a test run at your local store is a sure way to reveal what works best for each individual. There are a lot of models in both Xbox and Playstation, with even handheld models like the Sony Playstation PSP Go.

If you are interested in some of the extra benefits like playing movies and online gaming there are several consoles on the market with these features. Some play both DVDs and CDs and some even play Blu-ray Discs while some have the option to stream movies. Many offer the online gaming but an expert opinion is best to seek out for which ones actually perform best online.

Now, if you truly want the online game experience you are going to need good storage capacity. On the other hand, if you are not so interested in online gaming you can get by with less storage in your game console. Some games come with multiple capacity options and some use the flash memory instead of a hard drive.

One should take note and use caution to avoid compatibility issues with some titles because backward compatibility does matter. In other words, old games will not necessarily play on new consoles. Some consoles do offer backward compatibility while some do not. So, if you have in mind to play your old games on your new system, you will definitely want to compare gaming consoles for their features and functionality to find the best gaming console in India.

The Reason For Video Game Consoles

291375716 3d26bb08ff m The Reason For Video Game Consoles
by Tim Zim

Back in the early days of video gaming, let say around mid 1980′s, you had the choice of a personal computer or a game console to play games at home with. PC’s were not as complex as today, but they were changing constantly. Screen resolutions changed, processors changes, processing speeds changed. It all depended on what you could afford, options abound. The PC user had to educated in how to use the PC for every type of software that it used. Advanced users could tune the PC to get better performance from it, as was needed to play most PC games. New PC games pushed the boundaries and required upgrades to play them. Consoles were found on the idea that a user should not need to configure the console to get it to work with each new game as it became available. The average person could buy a console and take it home and be playing it within minutes. This has been the backbone that video game consoles have grown on.

You could always count on your console to play any game that you bought for it by just plugging it in. Consoles usually leaded in sales that stuck to this guide line. Consoles that wandered for this basic principle lost sales or floundered and went out of business.

The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) will be our starting point. The time line for video game consoles is unbroken from the NES introduction in 1985. the NES was simple to set, just hook it up to a TV and plug in the controllers and a game cartridge.

Next came the Sega Master System. It also was simple to use, plug it in and play. Now we have two game consoles fighting for the consumers dollars. This competition will lead to a confusion in the world of video game consoles years in November 1995.

Why A PC Is Better Than A Game Console For Online Gaming

3264330288 c55f2125a6 m Why A PC Is Better Than A Game Console For Online Gaming
by jmac33208

Gaming consoles have taken over the gaming community. Companies such as Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony have changed the way we play video games. It used to be common to play computer games, sometimes against another person via the Internet.

Access to these games was only available through your computer, now there are several options available and more on their way. Once consumers began using game consoles online to play, companies feared the downfall of computer gaming. That was not the case at all. There are some disadvantages of gaming consoles for online gaming compared to personal computers.

Gaming Options

There are a few different brands of gaming consoles available right now. Microsoft has Xbox and most recently Xbox 360. Sony has PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3 due to be released in November 2006. Nintendo has the Game Cube. Although these are all good consoles the PC has already been trying to merge the two (game consoles and pc gaming). Sony managed to merge them with its game Need for Speed, putting game console gamers against PC gamers in online games. This game became very successful. There are more pros than cons for gaming consoles when compared to PC gaming.

Disadvantages to Gaming Consoles

Some of the disadvantages of console gaming are:

All of the gaming components are sealed inside the unit. If there should be a problem you will have to replace most or all of unit, losing game data.

Once a console becomes outdated you cannot up grade without buying a new console.

A console is a one hit wonder; meaning you can only do one thing on it, play games. Unlike PC there is no other use for game consoles. Some do have the option of purchasing additional hardware, making DVD movie playback the only other option.

The games are not transferable. You can’t take an Xbox game and play it in a PlayStation etc.

Advantages to PC

There are some real advantages to owning a PC to play your games on. Here are a few:

The most popular advantage to PC gaming is the games! There is more variety and options for PC games than any other system.

Since the PC is more of a tool, games are easily downloaded and there are more and more made available for free.

Computers are made to handle the pixels displayed on the monitor keeping graphics sharp and without damage to the screen. Televisions weren’t made to handle the pixels as well and become damaged after a while.

Computers have many options available to connect to the internet, whereas consoles are limited.

Computers are versatile, allowing numerous upgrades and possible additions. Consoles are limited to the current system available.

Until a game console can handle the same things as a PC there is just no contest. PCs will still rule in the game world!
