Playsyde is opened for business!

Playsyde is opened for business!

It's been a long time since I wanted to also work on the playstation side of gaming and it's with great pleasure that I've opened Playsyde today ! If you already have an account here, just log in on playsyde with the same password.
Of course Xboxyde will stay exactly the same and will be updated as regularly as ever.
Needless to say that fanboys/haters are not welcome on any of the sites. A Xbox fanboy trolling on Playsyde will be banned from both sites at the same time. You have been warned!

Congratulations on the against all odds great variation on the "xyde" name concept using "playstation". I've actually been thinking and wondering how you'd solve that. :D

I really like the name playsyde, and the smaller variation rocks: PSY

Yeah, awesome. Heads up on the xboxyde link at the bottom of the site which sends you to www.xboxyde.com.com.

Awesome Blim. I like the idea of banning fanboys. :)


Is there any chance of having a openXBOX360 type of download for the US?

Congrats on the new site Blim! I'm sure it'll reach the same level of success that Xboxyde has witnessed.

MaxHartkopf, look for an openPS3 mirror coming soon! =D

No... blim has gone to the darkside!! He has grown far too powerful for us to contain we must gather our forces and strike him down before he has a chance to give life to a playstation 3 army!

:)

Pretty crazy I always thought this would happen as this site is so damn successful.

I really like the layout of the playsyde site.

A revolution themed "xyde/syde" site would be pointless. Why provide HD media of games on a console that refuses to embrace HD? The intention with these sites, from what I gather, is to offer the best, most accurate high definition media of any of the popular games sites. Not even if you pay for IGN or Gamespot memberships do you consistently get 720 media, be it images or videos.

All these sites will provide "full" res Revolution media already, so why would Blim mirror those here at his own expense, time, effort and money wise?

I'm excited about the Revolution as much as the next guy (just read that the new Gamecube Zelda will use the rev controller for some optional stuff - great!) but that doesn't stop me from questioning the relevance of a Blim made Rev site.

Haha indeed. I was just abot to say what about some hi-res revolution media, then remembered they plan on using standard definition televisions. Is nintendo planning on banking on the success of their ds by turning the revolution into a BIGGER ds so to speak? Expect to see a much larger more involved nintendogs on revolution or something.
