No It’s not a joke. The Sony PSP – that’s the thinner, lighter and more powerful PSP is almost here in a special Star Wars Edition.

Check out the real pic on the left !

The Star Wars PSP is available only in a bundle with LucasArts Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron which is only available on the PSP.

The bundle is officially available on Oct 9th and the initial pricing has it at $199.

Flash Gordon – Filmed in Canada – not available on Canadian TV August 29, 2007

Flash Gordon is filmed in British Columbia thanks in part to grants from the Government of Canada.

Yet if you live in Canada – it’s not all that easy to find Flash Gordon on the tube (legally that is). Canada’s Space Network (spacecast.com) which is the Canadian home to Battlestar Galactica and Stargate Atlantis among other first run SciFi shows IS NOT running Flash Gordon.

There is no official word on why that is.

Then again considering how bad Flash Gordon is – Canadians aren’t missing all that much are they?

If anyone needs proof that SciFi Network hates Sci Fi fans all they need to do is watch Flash Gordon.

After much anticipation the show aired on Friday (only in the US)..personally i was on a flight from San Francisco so I Tivo’ed it….i’m surprised my Tivo didn’t heave after recording it.

Flash Gordon – the new series isn’t a re-imagining.

It’s an insult.

It’s a travesty.

It’s disgusting.

The acting is weak, special effects are out of the 1960’s and the story well it was totally non-entertaining. SciFi did an awesome job with Battlestar Galactica – why they suck so badly at Flash Gordon has to do with attention to detail.

Sci Fi fans want Flash. We want cool effects and we demand intricate well written stories.

Apparently there are 22 episodes that have already been ordered of this series. Here’s hoping that they get better real fast before they have to cancel the series well ahead of the 22 episode mark.

Flash Gordon Set To Air This Friday! But is SciFi ready?? August 6, 2007

After many many months of talking about it here on ShowMeSciFi – Flash Gordon is ALMOST finally here – but is SciFi ready ?

The show is set to air this friday on SciFi channel and they’ve finally got a show portal up on the SciFi.com site for Flash Gordon. Unfortunately there is no episode listing (like stargate and other shows) so we don’t even know the name of the first episode officially yet.

We know that 22 episode were ordered but the portal gives no indication of anything other than the fact of who the cast members are and what the basic premise of the show is.

Overall it makes me wonder whether this show was rushed and if SciFi is actually ready for its launch. The promo’s and early teaser are o.k but there is only one of them. How can you expect a show to be succesful when you don’t promote it or properly support it ?

Apparently Sony is set to roll out a new PSP later this year that will be  33 percent lighter, 19 percent slimmer, the battery will be more efficient, and there will also be faster loading of games. It’s also expected to include a TV output in high def maybe.

They’re planning on rolling a Star Wars themed new PSP too –  the new Star Wars Battlefront PSP pack, which will include the Star Wars: Battlefront Renegade Squadron game and the special Star Wars PSP.

 Star Wars: Battlefront Renegade Squadron is a PSP only game that extends the Battlefront saga.
It’s expected to hit shelves in October. Woohoo!

I’ve played Star Wars Battlefront I and II mostly on the PS2 and enjoyed them both immensely.

It looks like i’ll be playing the third iteration of this series on the PSP with Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron. The trailer looks awesome..check it out below..
