Good God of War 3 and holy 80GB US$400 PS3

E3 2008

You knew it was coming, I knew it was coming, even my dog knew it was in the pipe (and hey, you know what you get when you spell dog backwards). So God of War 3, no gameplay to speak of (just a CGI trailer) but that's okay. I guess it's enough to know it's officially happening, and there's always the potential director David Jaffe and crew are saving up something to appease the Europeans at GCDC 2008 in Leipzig, Germany next month.

In other news, not as big but notable, Sony just dropped a press release confirming a new 80GB version of the 40GB PS3 this fall, virtually identical, interestingly, to Microsoft's little 40GB bump to the Xbox 360 20GB model on Sunday. Everything else, including the increasingly upsetting lack of PS2 backward compatibility (especially since it's a simple software update away) will be exactly the same. If you've been waiting all this time to buy a PS3 solely on the basis of a 40GB bump, the 80GB model's got your number.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
