On gaming experience: Is PS3’s delay worth the wait?

PS3

This may be one of the questions that PlayStation 3 fans have been asking since Sony announced the delay for the launch of the said console for PAL countries. We already ran an article on this to check if PS3 fans are amenable about the delay. With the comments we got, seems like most of them are not happy about it. But months after the bad news came out, Sony tried to woo back consumers by showcasing playable PS3s at different places like retailer branches. Well, looks like it’s paying off as many people are starting to comment that their PS3 gaming experience is unbelievable. Let’s try to figure out why.

Looking back, the initial PS3 controller used to be shaped like a boomerang but Sony later on announced that the final PS3 controller will resemble the PS2 controller, minus the wires. SIXAXIS, as it was named, may not have the Rumble that most PS3 fans have been expecting but the tilt functionality allows more control on games like Tony Hawk’s Project 8. It may not hold up against the tilt of Nintendo’s Wiimote but then we think it’s still a good one. Also, nothing beats the familiar feel of the controller, which to us, has been a great trademark of Sony.

Next is the graphics. At the Tokyo Games Show this year, PS3 has received so much attention – and praise – for its breathtaking graphical quality. Of course, you must use a high-definition TV to be able to enjoy PS3’s prowess in visuals. In addition to that, the Blu-ray feature of PS3 renders more detailed images and clear crisp sounds.

As for the games, PS3’s line up includes Genji: Days of the Blade which, basing from our latest news, will take advantage of the next-gen console’s 20/60GB HDD, drastically cutting the loading times. Another is Resistance: Fall of Man which Insomniac Games was able to cut down the software size to 16GB while maintaining a GD of 720p.

Though there are many negative write-ups about Sony after the delay, we are still optimistic that they would be able to deliver a memorable next-gen digital gaming experience to its consumers upon PS3’s release. Sony is one of the most comprehensive entertainment companies in the world and they have been known to produce world-class technologies. Though they may have some shortcomings concerning the PS3, this doesn’t mean that they are not capable to rock the gaming world with a powerful console. Still not convinced enough? Well, the preorder for PS3 consoles even managed to flood big pre-order sites like Amazon Japan. Late as it may be, PS3 is still packed with so many enticing features that is still irresistible to many.
