Ssshh, PS3 price drop.

Alright, so it may just be 'rumours and speculation' but with this coming from 2 sources and with Destructoid chipping in to give it some extra weight, I'm willing to believe. Perhaps it's just wishful thinking, but I've been mulling over the prospect of getting a ps3 for some time now. The one thing that it always comes down to is the price. The lack of games, or at least ones that I can't already get for my xbox, definitely contributes, but my cheapness always prevails. Essentially, I would be paying £300 just to play Littlebigplanet. As much as I want it, it's never going to justify that kind of price tag, especially after the way they've been handling this whole user-generated content debacle. See here!

The fact that a price drop would coincide with the release of Killzone 2 is more than logical and it's surely about time that Sony stopped deluding themselves and realised that they don't run this generation. It's Nintendo's pie now, and Microsoft's price drops help them edge ever-closer to the table, Sony would be wise to follow suit.

Cliffy B's custom tub girl faceplate.

When Cliff Blesinski, lead designer of gun-boner fest Gears of War jokingly asks you to make him a custom tub girl faceplate, who wouldn't rise to the challenge? I wouldn't have the first clue of how to go about making such a thing, but if that man asked me to do it, I'd try my hardest to please. That guy put a chainsaw on the end of a gun. I'd let him sleep with my first born daughter for that. When she is age appropriate of course, geez.

Spaceghost2K is just the man you should call on when you need an overly elaborate faceplate designed. He rose to the challenge, with gusto may I add. If you aren't familiar with Tubgirl, just Google it, we don't need that sort of thing on here. I'll happily show you the faceplate though:

*The Faux Bot sheepishly creeps back into the room- he presents you with a gift!*

Look, I don't have to explain myself to you. So, I haven't posted for some time. Big woop, wannafightaboudit?

Have this: Kaneda's bike (of Akira fame) lovingly re-created in Littlebigplanet. God I hate that game for being so loveable. Hold onto your hats kids, my inevitable Fallout 3 piece is in the works. For now though, courage.
