Defector: Xbox 360 to Playstation 4

I am an xbox user. I have been playing my xbox 360 for almost 4 years now. It's good, the game is somehow same as what we get in PS4, most games are multiplateform nowadays. I have no problem using my xbox 360. 

Until when it came to the time to upgrade. I had been given 2 choices. To upgrade my xbox to Xbox One or to change  everything to Playstation 4. 

I love Xbox 360 controller, I can't give it up for Dualshock 4 in Playstation. However, there are many aspect that I need to see to get to my decision. 

I bought a Playstation 4 in the end. I feel like I am a defector. Why did I change it? Not because I hate  Xbox 360 but I just think that Playstation, maybe, can also serve me well. 

Playstation 4 and Xbox has become a bit to similar nowadays. Last time, I bought Xbox because of the Kinect. I can show off to my Playstation 4 friend of my new kinect game that PS3 lack. Yes PS3 has that thing that can be use for motion sensor but have you all try Kinect? Damn microsoft really know how to make game more motion realistic. I enjoyed all Kinect game that I bought. Xbox 360 also have this sexy looking body which is neat and nice display in your house living room. Game wise, what Playstation 4 gamers play, almost 99% will be available in Xbox 360. The online game experience which is Xbox Live also bring gaming to a new level. 

Now, when I get to decide which one that I want, well, there are not that much option left. Both consoles now have that Kinect / Camera for motion sensor, both have a great online network, both have great online services for home entertainment. Almost both PS4 and Xbox One specs are the same. The only different is one produced by Sony, the other by Microsoft. 

One thing that affect my decision was, I am living in Malaysia....Xbox lack of support for Malaysian Gamers. I remember how hard I try to set up my XBox 360 account using a fake Singapore Postcode. I do not want to go through that process anymore. I want a console where I just turn it on, and I am ready to play offline or online. 

In term of price, Playstation 4 might be a bit cheaper but actually Xbox One is cheaper because it includes all those accessory such as Kinect. While in Playstation 4 box, you will only get the console and a controller. 

But as for me now living in a small apartment, Kinect might be a bit harder to use. Thus, I do not need that but if I bought Xbox One, I have to purchased that along with the console. That's why it became expensive. Paying for thing I do not need . 

Well, most nerds and gamers will described comparison between Xbox and Playstation in a very technical way, the RAM, Chips, GPU, CPU whatever there is, but as a regular consumer like me, this is only a few things that I think are significant in my choice to get a Playstation 4. For me, both devices are the same. You will get that awesome picture when you play the game no matter which one you choose. 

I chose playstation and I am enjoying it now. Perhaps, in the next generation of consoles, this two giant could really introduced something new that the other devices don't have. That will make it easier to choose which one to buy.

Astro Remote volume not responding

I have been looking around for solution when my Astro beyond remote start having problem where it does not want to control the volume of my astro anymore.

The strange thing is, the remote seem fine and only the mute and volume won't respond.

After realizing that the remote cost around rm250 to be replaced, I start thinking that this is not an ordinary remote control.

After a few minutes of research (only) I found out that this remote can be programmed to be synchronize with our television.

Hmmm. So the remote problem must be cause by it some programming error.


Turn out of you have similar problem like this, all you had to do is to press OK button with volume down until it bleep 4 times then it will be ok. This method canceled the volume control for the television ( meaning that you can only control the tv volume not the decoder).

Later I found out that if you want, you can use your tv only volume to control the astro thus no hassle to have 2 remote at the same time.

Becoming a medical officer in Malaysia: Are you still a real doctor?

To recap from my previous post, a person must completed 5-6 years study in medical school, pass their professional exam, enter 2 years house officer training program, pass their exam and completed their logbooks, then a person can now be called a fully registered Medical Officer / Medical Doctor.

A Journey of a Junior Medical Officer

After 7 or 8 years experience, a house officer will be given a full registration under Malaysian Medical Council. This registration process is a lengthy process which takes up months before it will be completed. Most doctors will apply for full registration 4 months before they finish their house officer training program. The registration will be processed only if all the criteria has been fulfilled by the house officer which includes log book, review by a board of specialist, no disciplinary action recorded, and other paper work stuff that need to be settled. A full registration means that the doctor now can practice as a doctor independently. They can wo…
