PlayStation 3 Info, Launch Releases, and upcoming Cheats

The PlayStation 3 is Sony's newest effort to their highly successful line of PlayStation consoles. The third generation of PlayStation will be released in the United States on November 17, 2006, although it appears that initial quantities will be quite limited. Oddly enough, after stating that they were prepared for a word wide launch, Sony switched the European PS3 release date to March of 2007. Perhaps this is due to Microsoft's somewhat botched launch of the Xbox 360, a direct competitor of the upcoming PS3 unit, along with the Nintendo Wii.

Sony has stated that the PlayStation 3 console will be backwards compatible with all previously released PS One and PS2 video games. The PS3 will come in two flavors, the biggest difference of the two will be the size of the hard drive. The PS3 Basic will have a 20 gig hard drive and the PS3 Premium will have a 60 gig hard drive.

Poker Strategies - The Art of Bluffing

In order to really understand the competitive beauty of poker, you need to accept the fact that a good liar can make a great poker player. Acting like you've got something - or pretending like you don't - can take you a long way in a poker tournament, so becoming an expert in bluffing can almost guarantee at least mild success. Personally I love to bluff; it stirs the pot and keeps people from getting a pinpoint idea of the cards you are playing. If you win a hand or two with a solid bluff and your opponent knows this, you're letting your opponent know that you are not afraid of losing and that "you won't be pushed around".

So what is a bluff? Bluffing is representing what you don't have, hoping to win a pot you have no business winning. But remember, your bluffs have to make sense.

Strange Flavour working on two more 360 camera games

Other titles supporting the camera include UNO, which is provided free with the peripheral, World Series Poker from Activision, Ubisoft's Rainbow Six: Vegas and Texas Hold 'Em, which is expected to receive an auto-update within weeks.

Speaking at a launch event in Central London this morning, Microsoft revealed that other publishers are currently considering how to make use of the camera, with EA Sports said to be "thinking about it."

One thing that isn't being planned at the moment is cross-platform chats between Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360 users, despite the fact that the camera itself works with Windows as a simple USB webcam.

The Xbox Live Vision camera is available from Friday priced GBP 34.99 and comes with an Xbox Live headset, a copy of UNO and one month free Xbox Live Gold access.
