Barcelona, as a city, enjoys and promotes sports. Very nice analysis of social networking sites. Facebook has become a big global brand nowadays. Even some MNC’s seek people having a great effect on Facebook pages and groups. We’ve wrestled with a number of good recent Vita games, but only one has made it all the way to the list: The rail-grinding OlliOlli, which bumps off Assassin’s Creed: Liberation. For me, i prefer playing games on my computer. And i don’t think it does matter whether you’re playing with console or computer. It depends on one’s preference. My granddaughter tells me that I am not playing video games because I don’t play them on a console attached to a TV. I told her that there were computer games first and that some console games were probably birthed on a computer anyway. She then tells me that this may be the case but still in her opinion, I am NOT playing a video game because it is on a computer.
The Xbox 360’s original graphical user interface was the Xbox 360 Dashboard; a tabbed interface that featured five “Blades” (formerly four blades), and was designed by AKQA and Audiobrain. It could be launched automatically when the console booted without a disc in it, or when the disc tray was ejected, but the user had the option to select what the console does if a game is in the tray on start up, or if inserted when already on. A simplified version of it was also accessible at any time via the Xbox Guide button on the gamepad. This simplified version showed the user’s gamercard, Xbox Live messages and friends list. It also allowed for personal and music settings, in addition to voice or video chats, or returning to the Xbox Dashboard from the game.
The generation defined by the Sony-Microsoft console war at its highest peak. In the previous generation, Sony released the Playstation 2 in 2000, staking its claim for the throne first, Microsoft later challenged that claim with the release of the Xbox in 2001. This generation, however, Microsoft decided to stake its claim first by releasing the Xbox 360 in 2005. Sony released the Playstation ps3 3 in 2006, in an attempt to retake the throne. The two gaming giants both featured very powerful gaming processors, high-definition graphics with HDMI connections. They had large hard disk-based secondary storage for games and downloaded content, integrated networking, and a companion on-line gameplay and sales platform. It is also the generation that ushered in wireless controllers.
