Transformers DS Stuff

Next Wednesday the new Transformers movie, Revenge of the Fallen, is coming out and it is significant event for me as the DS products I designed and developed will hit the markets the same day. This DS kits include a protective case and a character stylus and it is available in Megatron and Bumblebee at launch where buyers have a choice to get the stylus by itself also. Developing these was quite a long road where my company had to seek countless approvals in many stages both from Hasbro and Nintendo but the end result in my opinion worth all the pain and suffering. I worked with a great factory that gets toys and painting very well and kudos to my sculptor Denis Carratala for bringing the concept out to the model. Take a look at Megatron stylus becoming.

Where is PSPGo Going?

Sony says current PSP is going to be an ongoing product and PSPGo is a complimentary item on shelves but I don't really buy this. I believe once PSPGo hits the market this October the old PSP is a goner. I got a chance to play with the new model PSP at E3 earlier this month and it's pretty solid. Eversince my iPhone got great games I am questioning the need for another handheld gaming gadget though. PSPGo is missing a camera and that second analog stick everyone was bitching about.
