Excitement builds for the PS Vita

With just over a week left until the Aussie release of Sony PlayStation's exciting new handheld the PS Vita Australians are ecstatic at the chance to finally get their hands on a portable platform for real gamers, titles like Uncharted: Golden Abyss are sure to fly off the shelf.

Naturally as one of these Aussie gamers I am united in the enthusiasm and looking at February 28th as a new day for handheld consoles when people might move away from this app based gaming obsession that has put real games on the back shelf. The only question is; can Sony pull it off?. Reviews so far are mixed but Australians have always been enthusiastic about our friends from Japan and I have no doubts that this console will be something beautiful.

On Sony PlayStation's Youtube channel you can check out an excellent advertisement that I felt really highlighted what the PS Vita is all about, with great AAA titles and the ability to play them comfortably with dual analogue sticks the only way this could be a monumental fail would be some sort of apocalyptic event, unless you are an avid fan of new age consipiracy/fantasy then I would say drop your money on one when it launches here and let the good times roll.

Check out the advertisement.

Will Australian TOR players get a free switch?

It was announced back in December of 2011 that Australia and New Zealand would indeed be getting the much loved MMORPG from Bioware Star Wars: The Old Republic sometime in march if all goes well and it has even been hinted that importers of the game may be given some option to change to a local server.
Stephen Reid  Senior, Online Community Manager made this post on the official community forums back in December:

"We can confirm that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be launching in Australia and New Zealand in the spring of 2012.

Right now we are targeting March 1st, but that could change as our number one priority is making sure that customers have a great service to play on.

For those of you who may have already imported the game, we will be investigating solutions to allow you to continue to play on a local server once they come online in March.

EDIT: As pointed out, southern hemisphere seasons are reversed! When we say 'Spring' you can substitute 'Q1/Q2 2012'. Apologies for that".


That news is rather old but as someone who finally decided to take the dip and import now rather than wait it is somewhat comforting, though from what I have seen so far playing on U.S servers does not seem to be a huge problem. If Bioware does decide to allow this for free TOR players here in the oceanic would certainly be grateful and may even forgive the fact that game was not released here simultaneously with North America.

Guess who's back?

This blog has declined somewhat (completely) to little more than another static site in a vast universe of blogger domains, but I'm back now and here is a little rundown on my plans for the future.
