5 reasons why Ghostbusters: The Videogame is going to be lame

Over the past 24 hours, Aussie and European gamers have been reeling from the shock news that Ghostbusters: The Videogame will be a PlayStation exclusive. Incensed Wii and Xbox owners have been crying foul on every corner of the Net, while the Sony elite smile smugly and unleash the trolls of war (“who ya gonna call? Not Bill Gates! Boo-ya! Etc.”)

Being an Xbox owner, I got carried away by the hoopla like the rest of 'em, before coming to a sober and unbiased realisation – Ghostbusters: The Videgame will almost certainly suck. Think about it. This is the same project that started life as a ropy Zootfly video demonstration on YouTube. How can it possibly be anything other than awful?

Anthony Grifoni

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
