CDW - Hands on with the Red Sony PS3 - 8

Sony have just launched two new coloured Super Slim PlayStation 3 consoles, one in Garnet Red and the other in Azurite Blue and we took a closer look at the Garnet Red one, because Red is our favourite colour.

CDW - Hands on with the Red Sony PS3 - 4

Each of the new limited edition consoles brings a colourful, fresh new look to the 500GB Super Slim PS3.

The Garnet Red and Azurite Blue consoles also represent great value as each comes bundled with two coloured Dualshock3 controllers to match the console.

This PS3 also comes with a massive 500GB hard drive for all your downloads, saved games and anything else you want to put on it!

CDW - Hands on with the Red Sony PS3 - 6

By redesigning the internal design architecture and removing the disc-fed tray for a sliding top-loading disc cover, the PS3 Super Slim is reduced in size by up to 25% compared to the current Slim PS3.

CDW - Hands on with the Red Sony PS3 - 12

Having a sliding top-loading disc cover makes this PS3 feel a little retro, but that’s one of the things that makes this PS3 cool, apart from the colour of course. The cover works well either with the PS3 laying flat, like in the picture above, or if it is standing up. There is a button to open and close the the tray too, and it works a lot smoother when standing up.

Other than that you get the usual from a PS3, and the inclusion of two controllers was a great idea, because let’s be honest here, one controller is just never enough.

Here are some more shots of this limited edition beauty:

The limited edition PS3 consoles are available now for £249.99, so if you can’t wait for the PS4 why not bag yourself one of these beauties today?

Sky celebrates season of in-depth F1 action with Limited Edition Designer Box Collection inspired by Formula 1.

Racing Designer Boxes

To celebrate a season of in-depth Formula 1 coverage on the Sky Sports F1 HD channel, Sky has joined forces with racing legend Sir Stirling Moss OBE plus F1 fanatics, Jodie Kidd and Vic Reeves to create a limited edition Sky+HD 1TB Designer Box Collection, inspired by Formula 1.

The exclusive collection will launch ahead of the 2012 FORMULA ONE SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX in July – making it the perfect Father’s Day gift for sports mad dads. Sky Sports F1TM HD is the only place to enjoy live coverage of the whole Grand Prix season with all practice and qualifying sessions, plus every race in the calendar. Customers can register their interest in the boxes from 28 May 2012 via www.sky.com/designerboxes.

The Sky+HD 1TB Designer Box Collection is inspired by Formula 1 and each design offers an insight into the personality of the designer and their take on this iconic sport.

Sir Stirling Moss, OBE

“The idea for my design came from a car sculpture on the roof of my home which I designed myself, inspired by the racing cars from my era. The number 7 was a crucial element as it has always been a lucky number in my family. My mother was born on 7th July and I would always get the number 7 as my racing number if I could. I had a fair few wins driving cars with that number and, at one time when I was racing car number 43, I included a plus sign between the two numbers so they would add up to 7! I’m quite superstitious so everything I can control will always revolve around the number 7. The colour of my design includes a variety of racing car green, which comes in several different shades, something that many people don’t realise.”

Vic Reeves

“As a huge F1 fan I was delighted to be asked to design a Sky+HD box, particularly as some people might not be aware that I’m an artist as well as a comedian. I have many happy memories watching the races as a child, and even had a poster on my bedroom wall. I wanted my design to be playful and full of colour and because I love the shape of the old fashioned racing cars, I was keen to include one in there. I’ve grown up watching the sport and intend to be glued to the action this season with my family.”

Jodie Kidd

“I’ve always been a dedicated F1 fan and I am already hooked on this season. For my design, I wanted to create a glamorous ‘pin up girl’ look, as I love the iconic vintage paintings from the era. With the addition of the red racing car, it really stands out. My Sky+HD box sits in pride of place under my TV at home and I can’t wait to watch the British Grand Prix in July!”

The Sky+HD 1TB box lets customers access up to 60 HD channels depending on their subscription, with recording space of up to 240 hours of HD or 740 hours of standard definition programmes, and also comes 3D-ready. Viewers can also get hundreds of hours of great entertainment on demand including movies, entertainment, documentaries and drama ‘box sets’ at no extra cost once the box is linked to a broadband connection, with Sky Anytime+.

This week UWHS got to spend some time with Microsoft hearing all about the forthcoming Kinect Star Wars and getting to play it, and it was fun!

UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 007

We got to play on all the levels in the game, Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising, Podracing, Rancor Rampage, Galactic Dance Off and Duels of Fate.

Each one is different and brings it own challenges, and fun. For example it is a lot fun controlling a podracer and racing around the track using only your body, and the sheer amusement you get out of smashing up buildings and eating people as a Rancor cannot be beaten. And yes, ok, there is the Galactic Dance Off as well. It feels a little strange at first, but it’s actually quite fun, and I can certainly see the younger players enjoying that.

And the Duels of Fate levels – wow, being able to have a light sabre battle with Darth Vader himself it just fantastic. What I wouldn’t have given for this game back when I was a kid when Star Wars first came out!

I even played it in 3D (which usually I am not a fan of) but in this case the 3D works really well and really makes you feel that you in the game.

UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 017

Several familiar faces were on hand to help with the day:

UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 012UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 016UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 018UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 019UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 025

We even got to see one of the special Xbox Kinect Star Wars consoles:

UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 008UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 009UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 010UWHS - Kinect Star Wars 011

I can’t wait until I get the game at home and can play it to my hearts content!

And check out the promo video for Kinect Star Wars below:

Kinect Star Wars will be out on the 3rd April so get your pre-orders in if you haven’t already!
