ShockCast Episode 30 – “Happy Birthday PlayStation”

By Joel Taveras

September 10, 2010

This week the PlayStation turned 15 years old, and we join in the celebration by discussing our very own fondest memories from our PlayStation past. We also talk about the the present and what the future holds for Sony’s storied platform.  With the recent influx of high profile and quality downloadable titles we decided to take a look at what makes impulse purchases so appealing (nostalgia being the biggest catalyst) but at the same time, why some of us still prefer to have physical media. For our third topic, we discuss what type of games we think would work with Microsoft’s Kinect motion peripheral. And unfortunately what might keep most of us from picking up the controller when it hits shelves in November. All of that sprinkled in with this week’s top stories and you’ve got yourself one hell of a show, so make sure you take the time to give it a listen!
