Geek Links of the Week

Jim Sterling wins this week. His take on the fallacy of a killer app in gaming perfectly shows how publishers are going in the wrong direction in developing games. [The Escapist]

The PlayStation 4’s lead system architect, Mark Cerny, gave an in-depth interview about the hardware powering Sony’s next-gen console. [Gamasutra]

This is a convenient link since we had a Papo & Yo review this week. P&Y director Vander Caballero talks about why going console exclusive can have a benefit for indie games. [Indie Games]

I don’t know if we mentioned repeatedly but this week was Canadian Gaming Week on The Lowdown Blog. We closed the week up with a look at the powerhouse that is Canadian video game developers. [The Lowdown Blog]

Unfortunately, we didn’t end up getting a review copy of Star Trek: The Video Game. However, it turns out that nobody did. Angry Joe got the same email I did. He goes over the PR and programming disaster that is Star Trek’s launch.
