I had a great conversation with a Gamestop sales dude this past week. He shared with me the release dates of some of the greatest games next year for the PS3.
So…this Christmas, if you are a SERIOUS gamer and thinking about purchasing an Xbox 360 (or even a Wii), you may want to think again and check out these titles before you kick yourself in the butt for dropping your $$$ on some short-term fun.
MAG (Jan 26)
Truly massive multiplayer game on steroids
ModNation Racers (Feb 2)
Truly customized cart racing game. Game has LBP influence…
God of War III (April Fool’s Day)
Unbelievable game play… (Even when it was released on PS2)
All I know is that I really have to get my $$$ right to pick up all of these puppies!

As we continue in the millenium, I am not surprised in the latest technology and what will be coming to us soon. Holograms has already reared its beautiful head through the media via CNN and the Iron Man movie. The difference between holograms and augmented reality (AR), would be that AR operates real-time which both previously mention examplars would qualify under this classification.
I ran into augmented reality on, yes… Facebook, where GE was advertising this new technology for advertising its SmartGrid technology. GE has a demo for you to actually experience augmented reality. You need a webcam, microphone and a printer to print the marker for the magic to happen. The below demo is more realistic then the one from GE…
The above youtube flick demonstrates the real-time combination of real world and virtual reality! Think of all the real-world math problems one would dream with this technology!
Please share your ideas how you desire to see this technology to be used.
