Avoid Spikes Quickie: #106 Nub Gone Permanently

Advertisements

I’m an ardent Xbox gamer, but I had a PS3 for a bit  – and sold it after realising it was the least user-friendly bit of gaming kit I had ever owned. But I also had a PSP, and loved it deeply.

So deeply that every time I took it out of its hard travel case and gazed lovingly at its shining awesomeness I would let out a heavy, troubled sigh because there was ONE FUCKING ANALOG NUB which meant any game was pretty much unplayable, especially first-person shooters, my staple diet. Back in the box it would go, unused, it’s battery slowly draining away like the failing heartbeat of a sick and dying puppy. I always had a sad when I put it away.

I loved my PSP, but its stupid short-sighted design meant this awesome piece of engineering went largely ignored. So I sold that too, to Tom, who has probably played the bejesus out of it by now because that’s the way he rolls.

BUT LOOK! Now we have the Sony NGP (working title) with TWO FUCKING ANALOG STICKS! YES, STICKS!  Holy mother of God in chocolate jimmies and a lobster bib. We’ve only been asking Sony for that for like a FUCKING MILLION YEARS. So, Xbox gamer or not, color me interested. Well, in about four years when I can afford to get one without selling all my spleens.
