After nearly four years in the wilderness the PlayStation 3 has finally become a serious contender in the gaming realm. A disastrous start saw the PS3 fall way behind the Wii and Xbox 360 and for the most part can be blamed on its initial $700 price point. Now with a redesign that focused on cost saving and reliability, sales have sky rocketed and now reaffirms the place of Sony’s console in living rooms around the world. Finally the Sony PlayStation 3 is an affordable device that is not only a top gaming system but a highly competent BluRay and network media extender.

DJ Hero 2
DJ Hero was one of last year’s most surprising hits. Gamers were originally not convinced that a virtual DJ game with its own controller was ever going to be a success. To everyone’s amazement Activision pulled it off and delivered a package with just under 100 original remixes of classic tracks. The Rhythm Deck controller itself was also rather well made and gave gamers a genuine feel of mixing at the deck. Now the sequel is arriving just in time for Christmas and the special DJ Hero 2 Party Bundle for PS3 comes bundled with 2 Deck controllers and a Microphone. Perfect for the brand new and very cool multiplayer modes, DJ Hero 2 for PS3 Features well known remixes from Lady Gaga, Deadmau5, Kanye West, Chemical Brothers, Dr Dre, Rihanna and others.
