Editorials about gaming and things going on in gaming news. Guess what? Editorial=opinion!
Last week, I expressed my wish list for the PlayStation 4, and earlier this week, I had a glimmer of hope: Michael Pachter predicted the retail price of the PS4 at $350 and the Xbox One at $400. If this speculation turns out, price will no longer be a factor for many gamers.
However, as one who has never been a fan of Xbox, the One still has an upward battle before I’ll consider buying it.
The Nintendo Wii U is out and struggling, and the dust has settled on the disaster that was the Xbox One reveal. However, just because I’m not impressed with Nintendo and Microsoft’s offerings, I’m not saving parts of my paycheck for Sony’s PlayStation 4.

There’s a strange thing about Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. People lose their jobs, and offices begin collecting dust, but it’s not necessarily the end. As former Hostess employees can testify, when a chapter-11 company lays everyone off, there is always the option to begin again.
Politics invades the news today, and I know how much you all love talking about that! There’s nothing humanity can unite behind quite like American politics.
