We Pick The Best Gaming Products Of 2012

By The SmartHouse Team | Wednesday | 14/12/2011

Gaming tech has advanced exponentially, delivering Blu-Ray movies, web browsing, music management, image galleries and vids, in addition to seat-edging games that challenge modern understandings of art.

Best Gaming System
Sony PlayStation 3
$349 | www.au.playstation.com

The PlayStation 3 breaks the boundaries of 'gaming console' by seating itself at the heart of the home theatre as a complete media hub. It runs video games like any good console is supposed to, but it's also a self-housed Blu-ray player that can sit inside your home network as a network storage device. Sony's kept its eye on the future and has this year thrown subscription movie and music services like Qriocity into the mix to stream content onto the PS3. The PlayStation 3 pushed boundaries when it was first released, though it's stayed relevant beyond the gimmick appeal on the Nintendo Wii by constantly delivering new content in newer ways. It was once the cheapest Blu-ray player on the market, and now it's the cheapest way to turn your ordinary TV into a smart TV.

Highly Recommended
Xbox 360
$249 | www.xbox.com

Game of the Year
Batman: Arkham City
$99 | www.batmanarkhamcity.org

Bursting beyond the walls of Arkham Asylum, Gotham's most insane crooks have taken over the city with the lunacy of the Joker, the fatale of Harley Quinn and the menace of Two Face. Gotham's goons have been worked over with more character complementing their brawn, instead of looking like a generic bunch of crims. And fighting the almost ubiquitous pantheon of evil doers is the rising Knight. With balletic battles, violence and character depth, the latest range of Batman games (and movies) position Batman not as a hero, but as a man learning to transcend the brutal death of his parents, and old-fashioned understandings of good and evil. It doesn't have to be better than its acclaimed Arkham Asylum predecessor to be a winner: it just needs to be as good.

Highly Recommended
Battlefield 3
$99 | www.battlefield.com/au/battlefield3

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
