Sony’s new console looks a lot like the complete opposite to Microsoft’s Xbox 360. While the new Xbox will remind you of an inhale, Sony’s Playstation resembles an exhale. Earlier it seemed as though Sony was going for the small and sleek look with the release of the redesigned Playstation and their slick PSP; now it seems as though they just tried to jam all that power into a case and worry about looks later. Oh well, the games do look amazing. At least we’re not disappointed with the insides! Check out the rest of the images after the jump.
With E3 about to start the Press Conferences have already begun. Tonight, Sony and Microsoft make their announcements with details about their systems.

At the moment Andru is out in LA at the Microsoft Press conference and I’ll be out in LA to join him for the rest of the fun tomorrow. We will be giving you the run down on everything as soon as possible! To check out the specs on the PS3 read more.

Rumors have been circulating that Sony and Apple are working together to tie in iTunes and the ever popular iPod into Sony’s next Playstation.

Whether it be the OurColony.net Video or that horrid excuse for an unveiling we’re bringing you this info straight from the source which some of you may have seen, Xbox.com.

There has been an interesting relationship between video games and movies. There have been throngs of games based on movies and a few movies based on games. Even fewer is games based on movies that are worth playing and movies based on games that are worth watching. Since you can watch DVDs on a PS2, Xbox, Xbox360 and Playstation 3 I thought it would be nice to whip up a list of fifteen recommended movies for gamers. Some of these may require you to call around until you find a l33t video store that stocks said movie but it would be well worth it. Let’s begin shall we?
