Sony just announced that their flagship console will finally be released this year! Although I’ve been wanting to own one I’m still skeptical if I’ll pursue in purchasing it as I don’t have the time to play games. Probably the only time-frame where I can enjoy bashing the controllers is on weekends and that also means it would be pretty limited as most of the time I’m online.
Nevertheless - I’d still think about it because it doesn’t hurt if you spend 2 - 3 hours on weekend and enjoy a moment of yourself in your living room. Another good news about it is that they will be removing region lock and has the ability to play second hand games.
The only thing that’s left now is the lineup of games. I’m sure game developers are having a hard time creating one and because mobile gaming using smartphones and tablets are steadily increasing there’s a high chance that there are only less games to be released on this type of platforms.
So Google Just Opened Locally in the Philippines!?
I’ve been reading status messages on my FB wall that Google will open a local office here in the Philippines. But it kinda sucks esp. if you’re a CS grad wanting for a position in the local office because…
- The Google Office will only open for Marketing and Sales Position
- ^Google is known for the awesome perks and bonuses (Not sure if this will apply here but it’s Google Culture so I think it will)
- If you’re a programmer/csgrad you’ll know that if you’ve been accepted (Which is extremely rare) it means you’re one of the best programmers in the WORLD. And that means a lot if you’re serious of your career. But ironically AFAIK jobs offered locally will just be for marketing and sales position.
So the marketing and sales peeps are definitely excited about this while the CS Guys will sulk and just wish for an IT position! But anyway the cool thing about this is that…
- More exposure for Adwords which means more companies will bid for keywords which will convert for higher CPC rate of Google Ads.
- Accessibility of Google Devices will be much easier! Chromebooks, Android Devices and other cool things! Aside from that Hackathon sponsorship and possibly Seminars of all sorts.
These are just wishful thinking so there’s a big chance that this won’t happen! But who knows maybe all of the things that I’ve listed above will happen!
