Here's an early welcome to those of you preparing to enter the world of the Sony PlayStation 3 thanks to its lower price. You have a lot to play if you want to catch up, so you'd better get started on PS3 exclusives from the back-catalog such as Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, LittleBigPlanet, and Fat Princess. I was pleasantly surprised to see that most of you out there already have a PS3 though. You're in good company! Lower prices help stimulate industry competition, so here's hoping that we're at the start of a fantastic second half of this console generation no matter which console(s) you have in your home. There are plenty of creative projects on the way from a variety of proven developers, so clear your schedule and bulk up your bank account.
Speaking of fantastic industry products, the recently released Batman: Arkham Asylum for the PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 has made some impressive waves and raves among critics and Bat-fans alike. It's been earning high rating scores (Metacritic's aggregate is 91, while TestFreaks compiles the scores as 8.7). What do you think? Does it live up to the hype as the best Batman game ever or are you still carrying a torch for Acclaim's 16-bit take on Batman Forever? Let's hear your thoughts.
