Sony gets stingy with Network downloads

The PlayStation3 boasts it’s amazing graphics, great gameplay, built in Blu-ray player, HD games and interactive (and free) downloads. Almost.

As we know, Sony’s PS3 is known for its wide range of free online or downloadable gaming content, unlike Microsoft, which forces users to pay for online game play via the Xbox Live subscription service. One of the few notable advantages of the PS3, Sony recently announced that they have to pay a whopping(!) $0.16 per gigabyte downloaded.

Sony has decided to resolve this problem by sending a message out to all of their loyal publishers, warning them it’s detrimental affects on Sir Stringer’s salary, thus supposedly encouraging those publishers to re-think their decisions on how many products they produce and publish.

This is going to end up having detrimental effects on PlayStation3 users in the long run, as many smaller, independent publishers will be less likely to research and develop free content.

Come on Sony, don’t be so stingy! – o.

Developer:Vicarious Visions, Redoctane, Neversoft

Genre:Music/Party

Platforms: Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Wii, Xbox 360

Classification: PG

Guitar Hero: World Tour is the fourth game in the Guitar Hero series. This series has been a hit selling over 23 million copies world wide and making over 1.6 billion dollars in retail sales. This game, like the other three in the series, has been acclaimed by both critics and players. It is the perfect game for a bunch of friends or playing by your self in single player career mode.

Although the this game is like all the others (a guitar simulator style game where you play to many popular songs) world tour has introduced a new way of playing guitar hero. The developers have added drums and a microphone to the game. This way you are able to sing, drum or strum to your favorite songs, thus having the ability to create and perform in a virtual band with a few of your friends. Another addition to GH4 is the ‘Bass Guitar’ feature used while playing Guitar, where you are able to play the bass part to the song of your choice. The song list varies in styles of music (from alternative to heavy metal), but there are plenty of different genres to match your taste. Using an online store (dependent on your console), you are able to also download hundreds of other songs onto your hard drive.

List of songs, gallery and rest of review follow after the break.
