    I certainly am, really looking forward to that too!

    I think Playstation are a bit confused this time around, is the PS3 a games machine, a Blu Ray Player, an Online Network, a Media Center? Or a mixture of all of them.

    Nintendo will do what they always do best, and thats game. I really hope they pull out all the stops this time around and steal some of the limelight from MS and Sony.
    They always innovate, and I'm really hoping they'll show more of that tonight

    His article has been published on HEXUS, and will follow with a Nintendo article.

    It seems to me that Sony have just ripped off the revolution controller ideas but the implementation will be poor and no where near as good. That said I wil be getting one at launch.

    "implementation will be poor and no where near as good." that really is something we could only find out on testing/use of it though, hard to say really as its not even been released yet.

    "That said I wil be getting one at launch" I would have to say im on the same boat. Cost does not bother me as I know that I will be getting what ive paid for and it will go to good use

    what i mean when i say "implementation will be poor and no where near as good" is that if you look at the shape of the revolution controller it can realistically be held as if it were a gun, a paper aeroplane, a sword handle etc, etc as to be able to make best use of the tilting technology inside.

    I can hardly say the same about a PS joypad. Know what I mean.

    I cant belive they are sticking to that controller, its quite possibly the most uncomfortable controller ever concived.
