No way, Pedro! In fact, could we please remove ALL post-16bit content from the magazine, thanks. Bloomin modern 3D stuff! No!

Right, I'm off to play Rocket League.

No, not yet!

The PS3 is my favourite current/modern era console, and some PS3 games are most certainly on my all time favourite list (GTA IV, WWE 2K16, Red Dead Redemption, Bioshock, Borderlands), but I wouldn't consider it retro just yet, especially when there are still games being released...

To me the PS3 is definitely not "retro".

My own view on what is or not retro is that is MUST be at least 2 generations old with no support from the copyright holder.

As such, at present the Wii is NOT Retro - at least until the end of the month when they shut down ALL the online services for the system...
