On Tuesday, a video preview of what the upcoming PlayStation 5 is capable of.

If this is what game designers can do with the PS5 before it’s even been released, imagine the possibilities after the console has been out for a few years… imagine Grand Theft Auto 6 and Red Dead Redevelopment 3.

Could this be the end of the Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption video game series?

I read the worrying news that Dan Houser – co-founder of Rockstar Games – has left the company.

This is a huge announcement in the world of video games  Dan Houser was the primary creator of the two greatest game series ever made.

Like me, you have probably noticed that it isn’t unusual to see very young children playing on iPads, Fire tablets and the like.

Is this the norm these days?

… this bad boy went on sale in such, now deceased, retailers as Electronics Boutique, Our Price and Woolworths.

It would be another 18 months, until I was able to get my grubby little mits on one.

As anyone from the time will recall, there was always an agonising period of anxiety, at he “PS” logo, while you would pray for the game to launch and that the PlayStation would not fail. An all too frequent problem, especially as the old girl entered her twilight years.

Getting the machine chipped and burning games onto CDRs, probably didn’t help. Not that I ever partook in that kind of illegal activity…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
