Today’s post is about a cool Gaming Solution for all those Xbox & PS3 fans, have u ever felt schlepping your Xbox 360 or Ps3 around in your carry-on is a hardly ideal solution for platinum-level frequent fliers. Not only does it take up a significant portion of your roller, but once you get where you’re going there’s no guarantee that your hotel’s wood-paneled tube will know what to do with your high-end gaming machine.. Enter the GAEMS Portable Console Gaming and Entertainment System !! Yeah..

This Portable Gaming Solution which carries not only an Xbox but also a 15-inch, 720p LCD in the lid, and speakers to boot. Flip open your console and you’re good to go, though I was wondering whether there’s room in there for the power brick too. I do know that your controllers will not fit, which seems like an unfortunate design choice if you ask me. The GAEMS suitcase ships sometime before the end of the year for around $250, and yes there are PS3 and new Xbox 360 versions coming too.. So what do you think !!

Now we are deep into the “next generation” of gaming and Video game consoles have come a long way in the 3 decades since they first appeared. They began as simple entertainment devices for some nerd hobbyists. Since then, gaming has ballooned into a mainstream, multi-billion dollar industry featuring graphical powerhouses like the Sony PlayStation 3, which can render millions of polygons per second. Systems have come and gone in meanwhile, and I thought it would be worth making a list of the “Top Five Best Video Game Consoles” today:

1) Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite

While it’s neither a must-have upgrade for existing 360 owners nor as feature-packed as the PS3, the Xbox 360 Elite’s combination of top-notch gaming and digital media features make it the best game console of choice, it’s also one of the best ever !! The Xbox 360 doesn’t do anything particularly different from past systems, but it ranks high on the list for one reason: Xbox Live. Microsoft’s online platform proved that online gaming communities could thrive in the console space by not only creating a hub at which gamers could compete, but also a place to stream movies, download game trailers, and purchase both old and new games (as well as downloadable content) from the comfort of their sofas. The Xbox 360 is the prototype for online console gaming, and it’s just getting better..

2) Nintendo Wii

If you don’t mind the dearth of HD graphics, the Nintendo Wii’s combination of motion-sensitive controllers, included Wii Sports titles, and emphasis on fun gameplay make the ultra-affordable console hard to resist and the best in it’s class, even in the early 90’s this is the system that turned every child into a gamer. Nintendo gaming systems not only had one of the largest libraries in gaming, but one of the most varied: action, sports, RPGs, shooters, and more were all well represented. Of course, it would be a grave misstep to overlook the home debut of the most important video game in history, Super Mario Bros, a first-party exclusive that made the NES the first true must-have video game console, other include The Legend of Zelda, Mega Man 2.

3) Sony PlayStation 3 Slim

With a smaller design, more energy-efficient operation, lower price tag, and built-in Blu-ray and multimedia capabilities, the PS3 Slim delivers a compelling package for an affordable price for any gamer today, even the original PlayStation didn’t do anything particularly innovative (CD-based game systems had existed before its 1995 debut), but what Sony brought to the table with its first console was a level of maturity not seen in previous systems. Not only was it physically designed as a more living room-worthy entertainment component, but the games themselves saw more adult storytelling and darker themes. With the Sony PlayStation, gaming had finally grown up. The best of all were the games on Sony PS: Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, Xenogears. Love it!!

4) Sony PSP 3000 Ratchet and Clank Entertainment Pack

null

While there’s probably not enough to get owners of previous the PSP to upgrade, newcomers will find the PSP 3000 to be a solid portable gaming and multimedia device. The PSP-3000 debuted in fall 2008, having made further modifications to its predecessor, the PSP Slim and Lite deductions to its weight and dimensions, while expanding its multimedia capabilities to include video-out and others. Its previous version, the PlayStation Portable, had proven highly successful, managing to sell more than 40 million units worldwide (as of August 2008) since its late-2004/early-2005 release

5) Nintendo DSi

The Nintendo DSi is likely to be the final iteration of the venerable DS series of portable gaming consoles. Though the Nintendo DSi will abandon its backwards compatibility with the previous Nintendo handheld console, GameBoy Advanced, it does offer new media source compatibility with SD memory cards, greatly enhancing its ability to use other media. Along with strong improvements to graphic and video output and the incorporation of improved microphone technology and a built-in camera, the Nintendo DSi makes a very strong case for itself over the Nintendo DS Lite. While not all previous DS owners should upgrade, the DSi is an ambitious and solidly designed portable gaming system.

Just coming back from my friends house playing out the God of War 3 in PS3, just 1 word ‘Awesome’ and what else here is the review of the game, what makes this game stand out of the rest and it’s also been long time I blogged my favorite topic ‘Gaming’ being a core gamer 😉

God of WAR - 3 [KRATOS]

God of war as always received excellent review and fans alike and was the recipient of many awards, including “Game of the Year” honors, for those of you who are not so aware of this game, God of War video game for the PlayStation 2 console was released on March 22, 2005. It is an action-adventure game based on Greek mythology. God of War was developed by Sony Computer Entertainment’s Santa Monica division. It is the first installment of the God of War series of games and the second chronologically. God of War III released worldwide in March 2010, it is the fifth and final chapter in the current story arc, chronologically after God of War: Chains of Olympus, God of War, God of War: Betrayal, and God of War II. God of War III, however, will not be the last God of War game of the series.

God of War 3 as better looking textures, and overall gameplay. “Graphically, God of War 3 has definitely come a long way since its appearance. The character models and shadows look even more accurate and detailed, and the animation is spot on. The environments are dynamic and feel alive, and the superb art direction definitely makes this a sight to behold. While the framerate has been slowed down a bit from the PS2 excursions, motion blur and bloom lighting help add to the cinematic style of the game. All in all, this is sure to be one of the best looking games on the system.”

God of War III picks up immediately where God of War II ended, with Kratos riding on Gaia as she and the other massive Titans climb Mount Olympus to assault the gods. Combos from previous titles also make a return as well as new combos. The number of enemies onscreen has been increased to 50 as opposed to the maximum of 15 in previous God of War installments, The game features a challenge mode, like the previous installments, called the “Challenge of Olympus”. There is also a bonus challenge mode that was included in both the Ultimate and Ultimate Trilogy Editions of the game called the “Challenge of Exile”.

God of war primary platform is PlayStation 3, for other on PC and Xbox you guys know how to get those or at least for God of War 3 PC version it will soon on the net bet me ;), Here is some average review score on this game: GameRankings –> 2.86% & Metacritic –> 93/100.

The Board Of Film Classification has slapped an ’18’ rating, so u are just lucky to grab an blu-ray disc of this game if you just turned 18 years old ;), it makes sense since I bet it is one of the most violent games i have ever played, I hope they make movie on this i can rest assure it can be a never seen box office hit….

Talking about the CGI cinematics in God of War 3 actually there is nothing much into the game itself but the in-game PS3 engine is plenty capable of blending the non-interactive sequences with the interactive, so there’s basically no difference, everything you see is 100% in-game. All camera features, including motion blur, run real-time in the cinematics and in-game.. The God of War 3 engine is a new game engine that Sony Santa Monica has built from the ground up and the the in-game graphics are created using the God of War III engine..

What else, ooh in case you don’t already know, the God of War III demo is now downloadable from PlayStation Store (http://www.playstation.com/pc/store/country-selector/). Make sure you go and get hold of it immediately, you won’t be disappointed, my bet 😉

And for those of you who haven’t yet seen it, here’s the latest demo/review where you’ll be able to see Kratos inflicting total chaos and destruction. That’s all for now, I’ll be back soon for some more news. Enjoy the Game…
