This week we’re touching on a couple key gaming podcast style stories. We didn’t get through the gaming history this week because we had a lot of content to cover. We did, however, hit up the gaming flashback with M.U.L.E and learn about Tony Hawk’s ugly baby. This weeks gaming podcast includes:

This week’s question of the week: Are you ready for a next-generation console yet?

    – regarding RealD’s Stereoscopic Gaming API: a good deal of the companies that jump into this kind of new tech stuff expect to be bought by bigger companies. And to some extent this is needed: a small arse company does not have the marketing power to become world wide leaders in that market, and thus to promote their product world wide.
    @Derrick: how about an AvP game? Facehuggers do tend to jump 🙂
    – regarding the XBox price cut: this kinda shows the profit margins …
    As for PS3’s UI, well, at one point Joel Spolski did mention that giving users control increases the satisfaction got while using the product. You somehow prove that one right.
    – question of the week (ready for next gen consoles): no. I’m strictly a PC guy. Most games that I care of are PC games. None of the console exclusives were appealing enough for me to invest in a console.

    Don’t worry if the podcast goes for longer than one hour, I’ll listen.

    Australia Gaming NEWS : Alien Vs Predator has been banned in Australia for containing high-impact violence, according to the Classifications Board.

    “We will not be releasing a sanitised or cut down version for territories where adults are not considered by their governments to be able to make their own entertainment choices,” the game’s maker, Rebellion Developments, told gaming blog CVG.
    Australia does not have an adult rating for games, which means that anything stronger than an MA15+ rating has to be refused classification.

    Myself I think it stinks that we don’t have an 18+ rating for games. It should be the parent’s responsibility to monitor & restrict what content their children have access to & take advantage of the parental lock.

    IRT Ivan:
    I’m buying the game for a friend of mine that lives in Australia and I’m going to ship it to him.

    Problem solved.

    Aliens Vs. Predator has been resubmitted for rating, because there’s now a public referendum on the R18 rating – I’m sure they’ll mention it tonight.

    As for the question of the week: yes, I’m ready for the Xbox 720. They should make it a GameCube-to-Wii upgrade – two (or four) Xbox 360 processors, which would make it 100% backwards compat with the 360. Publishers could simply make a resolution bump to newly released games, making them both 360 and 720 games, and give Microsoft the perfect excuse to put a 500GB HD in the system. It would give the company three SKUs from $199 to $399.

    As it is, Microsoft is promoting Natal as their “next console”. (sigh)
