TalkRadar UK #17: End of year PS3 special

This week's men of business...

Hot topics...

This week is the first in a three part series of end of year reviews, where we pontificate (and get facts wrong) about the successes and failures of each of the 'big three' consoles over the past year. For the first of this trimurvate of episodes we've invited Dan Dawkins, editor of PSM3 magazine, to talk over the year according to the PlayStation 3.

Highlights include:

- Dan casually sidestepping any conversations about PS3 Home
- Some controversial 'game of the year' revelations
- Obscure references to 1980s kid's TV shows that no-one outside of the UK, under 30 will get. That's what Dan Dawkins brings to the plate
- No swearing. At all

Lowlights include:

- A whole 30 minutes of hilarious podcast material lost to a dodgy microphone lead. :-(((((((((

    Ok..i have a confession for the guys and anyone reading this.. A while ago when i played World Of Warcraft i was with my mate who also played, he off handedly told me his account password so i could have a quick look at his characters..little did he know i somehow remembered his password. a few weeks later my best friend was round and we were quite bored so i remembered we had his password and logged onto his account, this made for many hi jinks, we stripped him of his armour and weapons selling them and sending my char the gold..we went around yelling things at his mates to whome they mostly blocked him..and genereally pissed about before leaving him butt nekkid on a rock somewhere near westfall..he logged on a while after and was fuming he obviously came straight to me and my friend...but being the smooth talkers we are..we managed to convince him that it was a hacker..and he had a keylogger on his computer. He still to this day doesnt know.....

    The PS3 clearly had the best year this year, in terms of Sony doing better and having the best games. It had all the good ones that 360 had (except L4D, I guess) plus many terrific exclusives. And it does bother me that the US guys don't ever seem to use their PS3s, and apparently haven't updated them since 2007, and continue to complain about usability problems I've never had with it, and that it's too expensive (never mind needing to drop a load on the 360 to get it near PS3's abilities now.) In conclusion, why exactly does it matter if you claim first in reviews or features or whatever? They're still the first person to type first when anything is added, why is it less "prestigious" in some places than others? P.S. This was one of the more game oriented UK podcasts they've done. Not bad.

    @Jackwhatever - STFU, Tdar UK is as equally great and important as Tdar US. Anyway, i'm very much looking forward to this.

    @Eenieboy: Well, the only person on the American team that has a PS3 (I may be wrong, I think that someone else got it so this may be a bit dated) is Mikel! So I like that the UK lads play the PS3. When I was playing the 24-hour marathon I asked (I think) George which did they prefer and he said that most of them preferred the PS3. AAAAAND, I saw Dave M in an article for Official PlayStation Magazine

    @ Breener: Why are you surprised that people still deservedly "remain faithful" to a multi-million selling current gen console? Not a big surprise really...
  • breener96 - December 9, 2009 7:14 p.m.

    About to download! Love TDar UK, as you guys know ; ) And this is a PS3 special? I'm so glad that there are some other people out there that are still faithful to Sony! Viva la PlaySation!

    actually being first for anything isnt a big deal... ill doenload this asap, even though nathan called me a whore :'(
  • JackSkellingtonsSkin - December 9, 2009 5:47 p.m.

    @ImTheBatman - Being first for tdar_uk isn't a big deal. Being first for a review is equally unimpressive. Being first for tdar or a feature matters.
  • ImTheBatman - December 9, 2009 5:29 p.m.

    First! (sorry had to be done) cant wait to listen to this
