Vita’s 3G Capped to 20MB of Data Download… wait what? o__O

Seems like Sony is taking a page from mobile phone service providers and posting a data download cap on their Vita (the data download cap is only if you opt for the 3G model.)

Sony representatives stated that players who will use the 3G downloads will be limited to 20MB of data. Wait what? That’s pretty damn absurd; what if I want to download a game from the PS Store or even do some online gaming? Oh wait, I can’t even do online gaming in 3G because the speeds are around 128kbps download and 64kbps upload. So unless I REALLY like the feel of my online gaming to be somewhere along the lines of obtuse and virtually unplayable, I get no online gaming for my Vita. Which brings about another question, why even bother having a 3G model if the speeds are going to be this piss poor?

Luckily those speeds and data caps are only for Japan (as of this typing) it’s still unknown as to what Americans and Brits get to do with their 3G, but since AT&T has an exclusive partnership deal with Sony & the Vita (in the U.S. that is) I’m guessing fuck all. I think I’m going to get Verizon Wi-Fi just to see if I can make an AT&T employee’s head implode.

The PSVita launches in Japan on December 17th, 2011. And sometime in early 2012 for the rest of us that matter.

N-Control’s “Avenger” PS3 Accessory Promises to Revolutionize Gameplay

Really? That looks like a flustercuk. >_>

 

N-Control is releasing its new accessory for the PlayStation 3 controller, this November. N-Control guarantees to provide users with “the ultimate gaming advantage.” N-Control claims its “Avenger” accessory to be “the most sophisticated secret weapon in the gaming industry,”. I swear, just about every other accessory maker and their dog claims this whenever they release an accessory too. Maybe I should place one of my turds in the freezer overnight and call it “the joystick that literally conforms to the way you hold it”. “The ShitStick, available now for 29.99 at where ever over-priced accessories can be found.”

Oh Demotivational, where would we be without you?

All cynicism and witty dialogue aside; the Avenger is an external adapter that houses the PlayStation 3 controller to enhance game play. The accessory tightly grips the controller’s exterior surface, providing an immersive gaming experience through an intuitive user-interface. Or so N-Control claims.  “It enhances the gamer’s manual dexterity and situational awareness by improving accuracy and reaction time,” says David Kotkin, lead designer of The N-Control Avenger. “This sophisticated accessory is specially engineered for those who want to push their gaming abilities to new heights.” The Avenger supposedly allows for rapid, fluid movements between individual buttons and analogue sticks (because I’ve always complained that my thumbs were just too fucking slow), allowing gamers to access nine functions simultaneously (who the hell needs nine functions at once?). The adapter comes equipped with a stabilizer tripod, high-precision tension straps, hair-triggers, and sensitivity adjusters, which can be fine-tuned like the price of a indecisive crack whore.

The Avenger’s release date coincides with the launch of Modern Warfare 3. The Avenger will only be available in a limited edition of 5000 Units Worldwide; gamers had better hurry if they wish to take advantage of this offer The PS3 Avenger can be ordered online from the N-Control website for $48.99.
