We've heard that Australia won't be getting the exact same version of Grand Theft Auto IV as the rest of the world. It is unfortunate, and Rockstar has spoken up about why they decided to create the special edition for the Land Down Under.
Have I ever mentioned that I'm proud to live in the USA? All too often we are hearing about other countries getting games months after we do, or even worse, having some games censored or not released at all due to the nature of the content. One such example would be the Australian release of Grand Theft Auto IV.
The Xbox 360 is dead. At least that's the firm belief of several major retailers in Australia. Apparently they're only stocking the console because of their relationship with Microsoft. Seems like the Land Down Under must be filled with PS3 and Wii lovers.
I'll venture a guess that most of you aren't from Australia. However, I'm sure that at least a few of you hail from the Land Down Under, so this bit of news is for you guys. If you happened to purchase a copy of Medal of Honor Heroes 2 for the Wii (only in Australia, mind you) you may have noticed that online play is missing. Don't worry, EA has your back. Kind of.
Here in the US we merely have rumblings of such a new system being brought to us, with no official announcement, and Dell is based here. But in Australia they actually have the new Dell notebook up for pre-order, what gives?
Dell has been selling Linux-based desktops for a little while now, so it's no surprise that someone like HP would be jumping into the ring. What is surprising is where they decided to launch this new initiative.
According to Michael Ephraim, managing director of Sony Australia, The Playstation 3 is king in the console wars, as least in Australia. Here is a riveting statement from him regarding its booming sales. “"PS3...outselling Wii and Xbox 360 every week, except for last week."
Those of you living in Australia and New Zealand will be happy to hear that you're only days away from being able to purchase a Samsung Q1 Ultra Mobile PC. According to a press release that we received today, it will be available within the next 3 days.
