Sony Game Night
I went to a Sony party and demo night last Thursday and had some fun. They had the one party feature that virtually guarantees that attendance will be worth it: an open bar.
I played Tourist Trophy, a realistic simulation motorcylce raching game from the same studio that developed GT4. There are a lot of the same tracks as GT but switched around for motorcylce racing. The sound effects are taken from an actual motorcylce going around a track. There are more than 35 tracks and over 100 bikes. The bike handled well, predictably, and consistently. I enjoyed playing this very much. It is scheduled to ship in March or April of 2006.

I also played MLB 06 The Show for both PS2 and PSP. I was really impressed with the graphics on PSP. I had some fun playing Home Run Derby. I just don't know what to say about a baseball game in December. My mind has switched over to hockey and football so I can't even think in terms relative to baseball. It looked like an average baseball game on PS2 and looked great on PSP.
