It took a while, but eventually my PS3 managed to download some of the E3 goodies from the PlayStation Store. If you’re a regular reader of internet opinion, such as it is, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the PS3’s future was as uncertain as Carlos Tevez’s. When in reality, we all know what’s going to happen.
And that’s what the trailers show. A lovely future for the PS3, chock-full of excellent games. I’m not sure whether I’m more excited by the prospect of more downloadable gems like Stardust or the likes of GTA, GT5, and Killzone 2. Little Big Planet (LBP) is shaping up to be the greatest thing since Sky+, no mean feat considering Sky+ gives pause-rewind-play control over Girls of the Playboy Mansion.
The saying ‘home is where the heart is’ could prove to be incredibly apt in the PS3’s future. The ideas behind Home seem to be dividing opinion like Marmite, but I think it’s looking like being the new heart of the PlayStation Network. Already dreams of hanging out in my virtual pad, reflecting on glories on the Hot Shots Golf courses are filling my waking moments. I can’t mention what’s filling my sleeping moments, but it’s fairly similar stuff.
Sony took E3 by storm and the trailers let us in on it too. Now, if Sony could just see fit to give us the keys to Home, we’d be most obliged…
