UK Guardian blasts PS3

So much for unbiased and responsible journalism. Tha UK Guardian definitely isn't the poster boy for those qualities. The site just ran an artice listing the pros and cons of the Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony PlayStation 3. Everything was going well, except that the writer missed the pros for the PS3.

The site called Sony's current-generation console a disappointment and a platform only for those obsessed with the PlayStation brand. No mention of free online play, a built-in Blu-ray drive, and some of the best games out there were made.

The article called the Wii a nice intro to games and showed some love for its motion controls. The Guardian did say that the graphics aren't as impressive as the Xbox 360's and the PS3's and it told its readers that ground-breaking games for the console are infrequent.

Where it gets shady is on the Xbox 360 part which is a polar opposite of the PS3 bit. The Guardian showed love for everything the console does, but it did try to throw in sone form of criticism by dissing the Arcade SKU.

Way to parade your ignorance, Guardian. Next time stick to guarding whatever you're guarding in the UK and leave the gaming to us.
