My PS3 and Wii

Just to post some updates on my PlayStation 3 and Wii.

You might remember that I bought a pre-owned copy Grand Theft Auto IV (to Don: it means secondhand) in late June. No long after that, I realised there's Special Edition of it. So I sold my secondhand copy on eBay and bought the Special Edition. Reason? I want to have the metal safe deposit box.

Grand Theft Auto IV Special Edition

Last Saturday, Laurent bought me Buzz!: Quiz TV (PlayStation 3), a game that is similar to trivia questions (TV shows). Laurent is quite good at that, and I am only good in a few categories. But it is a lot of fun to play it.

(as usual, more photos follow...)

Buzz! (for PlayStation) is similar to Scene It? on Xbox 360 platform.

Buzz!: Quiz TV

On the Wii side, I got myself a Wii Zapper, a Classic Controller, and one controversial game - Bully.

Wii Zapper and the included game: Link's Crossbow Training.
Wii Zapper

Wii Zapper is a very interesting concept, it turns the Wii Remote and Nunchuk into a gun. Although I haven't played Link's Crossbow Training much, Wii Zapper works quite well.

Wii Play and Nunchuk

Although Don recommended me not to get Wii Zapper and Classic Controller (using Game Cube controller instead), the Classic Controller is needed for old games, and recommended for games like Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Classic Controller for Wii

And the first Wii game I bought, not counting the games that comes with accessories. It is a very interesting game, not as negative as media tried to make.

The most played game recently? I play Wii Fit a lot! (Yes, Antony needs to get fit.) Laurent likes to play Buzz!: Quiz TV, and I've been trying to drag him to play Wii Fit. Besides those, we've been competing with each other on Wii Play.

So, this is update of Antony's video consoles and games. For the record, unlike Don who has three (3) video game consoles (Sony PlayStation 2, Microsoft Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube), Antony only has two (PlayStation 3 and Wii). (to Don: Antony is poor)

more August 2008 blogs. (or 2008 blogs)
from iTunes Store:
You know, you've bought more games and accessories in the past five or six weeks than I've bought in the past five or six years...

I still would've recommended you the 100% compatible Wavebird over the Classic Controller, but then again you don't seem to like older or non-intended accessories.

"I am only good in a few categories...." YOU WISH!!!!

Well, I can't find any Wavebird controllers around. Plus, the Classic Controller looks nice with all other Wii accessories.

So do you really like the Wii Fit? I think it's kind of awkward but I play it still whenever I have some spare time.
