This week sees the release of the first ever console which plays only downloadable games. The PSPGo is probably the last version of the PSP console from Sony. It will aim to capture some of the Iphone game market by encouraging developers to create mini games that will only be available from the PSP store. At Euros260 though it makes you wonder how many people will buy it. It’s more expensive than the 360 and only 40 Euros cheaper than the PS3 Slim.
Accompanying the PSPGo release is one of Sony’s biggest game franchises, Gran Turismo. Currently with a Metacritic score of 79 though it’s highly unlikely that it will do much to help the launch sales of the PSPGo.
Finaly we have FIFA 10, my game of the week. After many years of hating the FIFA series, 2 seasons ago i made the transition from PES and haven’t looked back since. This year i believe the gap between the two football games will become wider as Konami‘s game has really stagnated over the past few years. Peter Moore, the man responsible at EA Sports has stated that the aim for FIFA 10 is to achieve a Metacritic score of above 90. So far so good for Mr Moore as the game currently it sits at 92.
“If last year saw FIFA knocking PES off its perch, this year it’s chasing it around the birdcage with a plank of wood and a sledgehammer.”
