so today i finally got my PS3...i am now a proud owner of the PSWii60<<<god i feel a dork saying/typing that,LOL


i got the package
console+2 controllers
motorstorm,resistance games
casino royale,black hawk down BR dvds

anyway,i fired it up,didnt have any problems with signing in from when i registered my name,which was great

played about for a while with looking around the menus getting to know stuff,from this point i was a little overwhelmed,but hopefully i will get used to it

so,i find where the memory tells you how much you have left

its 55gig(i know that its 60 gig,but its the same with the 360...13 gig out of 20 gig)...but the thing is it said about 49gig left,and i hadnt downloaded anything,and nothing was there in the videos etc

USB cable for the joypad is a little short,but then again SONY always do give short leads.....looking at the ethernet cable i got with it as well,thats a lot shorter than the 360 one

so,i went onto the PSN store,browsed for a while,and downloaded a few trailers and some demos...dont like how i cant buy stuff of there,i wanted tekken 5!!...i dont have a credit card though,hopefully points cards or something will come out,as i was discussing on here the other day

Ninja Gaiden sigma demo....why the hell do i have to sit through the warning???

oh,and download the demo,and then install it?.....gits

i put in my PSP memory card,i had some videos on there that i got from teamxbox,force unleashed trailer looks even better on the big screen,i was quite impressed with that,that means when LOST series 4 starts and i get them from Limewire and usually watch them on my PSP..now i can watch them on my TV

i had a picture of drew barrymore in her knickers and top on my PSP,so thats now my wallpaper icon_biggrin

is there anything at the moment that the PSP can do with the PS3...other than what i have mentioned,any interactive with PS3 games for instance?


okay,first,just as i was checking i thought i would put in the Blu-ray dvds......i have a SONY wega triniton widescreen (32" i think) television,not HD,although i have always marvelled at the ace picture...but i still wasnt expecting the BRs to work...but they did,picture was fine,but you could tell on a HD,it would look a lot better,but still....didnt expect them to work at all

resistance:fall of man......oh nice its all set in england,and some in manchester where i live...how cool is that....oh wait,hold on....Americans coming to save us????...typical!!!!,lol

the game was quite good what i played of it,(about 10-20minutes)...wouldnt mind having the fire button on R2 though,R1 was a tad awkward...but still gonna look forward to playing through that in the coming days....and 40 people online..nice

Motorstorm...wasnt expecting to like this,but i did,it was a lot fo fun,and the graphics are vewy,vewy pweetty..although the opening movie,stuttered some....maybe another corker online(but could only connect to Australian or Europe servers..shame)


okay,the big test...the european backwards comptible part...with the collection i have

final fantasy 7-fine
final fantasy 8-fine
final fantasy 9-fine
10-fine
dirge of cerberus-fine
star ocean-fine
bully-fine
(i have others but havent tried them yet)


in fact from what i could tell most ran quite good,and looked,or at least it seems it looks better,wherther some problems prop up later on a later disc maybe i dont know


gran turismo HD concept was.....dissapointing,cars werent what i was hoping for,and the crowds animation want very impressive...most were statues...but it is a demo,so hopefully it will improve

F1 demo,was a lot different than i was expecting,fast and furious,more like crash bandicoot,i was expecting to have to be very careful,but i found i could wiz round the track...so i think i may pick this title up,even though the racers are now quite old

1 real bad point is the lack of a headset,now i have to go to town and pick one up some time...hopefully get one that works with the system


overall,at the moment i am quite impressed with it,its big,its heavy-ish..and gets fingerprints on it easily...but its certainly better than i thought it was gonna be.....now,will the games come out for it?

Yes, they will-starting with a landslide at the beginning of August through early next year. Glad you like it man. My question-why don't you have an HDTV!! I know you play lots of games, and you got a PS3 and Blu-Ray's, but no HDTV!! Come on man  icon_wink

isn't that a crime?  a PS3 without a HDTV?  It's like having a Porsche and only driving the speed limit.  You'd better fix that before I call Scotland Yard on you and they'll take away your picture of Drew Barrymore in her knickers.

I honestly think the PS3 is a sleeping giant slowly beginning to awaken.
There's some really good exclusive stuff on the horizon: Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, Eye of Judgment, Lair, Heavenly Sword, MGS IV, FF XIII, etc.

Although I'm not an avid console gamer I did buy the 360 a few months ago........I wish I had waited and got a PS-3.

Its a terrible feeling spending a boat load of money on a system and a HDTV only to worried everytime you fire it up might be its last time...

Good luck with your purchase...and yes, I second the motion you need to do all things possible within your means to acquire a HDTV.......

Yeah, there is some nice stuff on the horizon.  Heavenly Sword could make my must have list.  I'm waiting to see how the AI for Uncharted turns out before I get really excited about it.  The enemy was just standing around one of the recent videos I saw but I'm sure there's plenty of time for polish before it comes out.  MGS IV will be a 360 purchase if I get it.

One of the main reasons I'm holding off on a PS3 purchase (other than the ridiculous price) is to see how many of these titles stay exclusive.  If the system keeps selling so abysmally, game makers are going to be very hard-pressed to continue to give exclusives to the PS3.

Since i got my PS3 3 weeks ago, i haven't even fired up my 360.  I'm buying all my stuff for the PS3 as well because i'm afraid my 360 will give me the 3 ring of death and then i'll be without some games.  I also use it nightly for DvD and BD movies and the picture is unbelievable on my 71" Samsung.   I've also got some PS2 games on my playlist to keep me busy.

I'm in agreement that this system is a sleeping giant.  I absolutely love it.

I'm not trying to be a salesman or anything, I am neutral and love both my 360 and PS3, but I gotta tell ya Gratch, for what I paid for it ($600), the PS3 has been worth every penny for me. I have played more F1 Championship and MLB: THE SHOW than any other game, on either of my consoles. Add to it that I now have arguably the best upconverting DVD player now (the PS3) a top notch Blu-Ray player for my 30+ Blu-Ray movies, and a kick ass music player, it has been worth the initial expense. I only have 2 more 360 games than PS3 games now and for the rest of '07, it might be 50/50 with all the solid PS3 titles coming out.

I pretty much have been the same way. I bought APF 2K8 for the 360, but I bought Transformers, The Darkness, NCAA Football 2008 and NASCAR 2008 for the PS3, for the reliability reasons you mentioned.

Know what else is great? My brother coming over and us being able to play Panzer General and Allied General (both PS1 games) on the PS3.

Welcome to the club.

You may get flamed a little, but only by non-PS3 owners.  And that's for a reason.

Probably something similar to the 360, Gears of War, or NFL2Kx. slywink  People like talking about the things they like.

I only have 2 more 360 games than PS3 games now and for the rest of '07, it might be 50/50 with all the solid PS3 titles coming out.

Right now, it all comes down to games.  I can count the number of current or upcoming PS3 exclusives that interest me on 2 fingers:  Final Fantasy XIII and White Knight (?  Not even sure that's the right name).  I have an older rear-projection TV that still works fine for 1080i stuff, but I'm afraid most of the hi-def capabilities wouldn't really be used, since there's no way I could spring for a new TV anytime soon.  Conversely, there's a ton of games coming out for the 360 that I want.  A few of them are cross-platform,  but the main ones I'm interested in are not.

I'm sure I'll have a PS3 somewhere down the line.  I figure that by the time the PS3 price drops into a range that I can actually afford (at least sub-$400), there will be a larger library of games that I will enjoy.  Currently, however, it would be a $600 paperweight.

I am accustom of having all platforms, its being a thing from my youth full days. Back then it was worth having two systems and finding a  cross platform game was rear. Now a days its almost not wort it at this rate Sony and MS might-as-well merge. I am really not in a rush to get the PS3. In the mean time I will have to invest into another HD TV Flat screen this time and catch the PS3 for under the below $400. price tag.  IF GTA: IV was going to only be available on the PS3....... I would have had that bad boy on day one.......sorry Sony  icon_frown you drop the ball on that one. Now to pray this piece of shit 360 don't break when I get GTA:IV, or Bioshock, or mass Effect, or Acecombat6 This f-ing 360 stress is going to be the death of me.

Congrats on you purchase...try not to be a stranger on live..

I picked one up last week, and thus far I'm loving it, save for a few niggles.
For example, the screen is sized oddly, making it too wide for my 16:10 screen.
Also, there are no games to play, other than PS2 games. GIMMEE SOME PURDY GAMES!

I have a general question HD flat screen PS3 owners. Do all your games or TV's have a sought of outline around your characters? I see this in every PS3 display, and did at one point with the 360 Cod. This is why I bought a 32"HD Tube because it was a clean crisp picture. Now I go in to stores and PS3 NCAA has outlines and 360 is clean  as an example.

Heavenly Sword demo releasing worldwide tomorrow the 26th.

Damn, right when I leave for comic con.

Dan, I have no idea what you mean by outline, can you post a screenshot for example?

Could be a problem with up/down scaling for whatever game you're playing.

Same reason why people mention the 360, games for any platform, books, movies, etc...  If you like something, you want to see it succeed.  There is no need for justification, just happiness and a desire to share it.

I'm just gonna grab them for new wallpaper for my PC. I haven't patched my PS3 up to 1.90 yet, and I don't see a reason to do so either. smile

Thought I saw a great shot in one of the packages that would go great with the PS3 though... It had to do with an NES controller. Ahha - grab Collection #15 for it.

What is it that makes people named Denoginizer feel the need to constantly piss all over a gaming console? Don't like the PS3 or its owners, don't come into PS3 threads.

I'm sure you were referring to me, and thats fine if you wanna believe I am "justifying it on a message board" (though I am not). I do wish that whatever chip you have on your shoulder, would finally fall off, so you could stop all the dissing of the PS3.

I will diss whatever system I want.  I own a PS3 and it has been rather lackluster since I purchased it about a week after launch.  Things are looking to (hopefully) change though with the fall line up looking pretty great.  I dont diss the PS3 to just to diss the PS3.  I diss it because it was an investment that so far has not been worth the price of admission.  I dont diss it because I want it to fail, I want exactly the opposite.  The more good games on each console the better.  I hate the word diss.

What is it about the PS3 that makes people who buy them feel they constantly have to justify it on internet message boards?



What is it about people who can't just join in when someone else is excited about something they've just bought?  retard

***Edit

Good point.  Just for reference I was not referring to the original poster.  I'll just drop it now.



I'm sure you were referring to me, and thats fine if you wanna believe I am "justifying it on a message board" (though I am not). I do wish that whatever chip you have on your shoulder, would finally fall off, so you could stop all the dissing of the PS3.

I wasn't referring to any single person in particular and I don't want to get personal with this stuff.  I just noticed a trend on a few boards in addition to this one where people seem to feel that they have to constantly tell us what a great machine the PS3 is.  It is a very slick piece of hardware but there just aren't enough games I want to play in order to justify the purchase for me. 

I am an equal opportunity disser.  Actually I diss the Wii more than the PS3 because I actually own it, and it has very few games I want to play.  The PS3 doesn't either but at least I haven't purchased one yet.  The 360 has plenty of games I like but I live in fear of the rings of doom every time I turn it on. 

Is that better?

Yeah, a bit, but you sometimes seem to go out of your way to rain on the PS3 parade, a bit more than needed.

All I want is a bit of fairness, that's all, and if you are striving for that, then thats cool. thumbsup

Hmm, I hate babies almost as much as the word diss though.

He was making a joke about sudden infant death syndrome (sids). It's not funny, though. My mom died from it.

how is this for more wookiee?




anyway,i basically posted about getting a PS3 for two main reasons...1 is,that i was quite excited with it,as i was with the 360

another is,that right now,the PS3 has got many mixed reviews or views,so i think another persons view on the console is good,maybe give someone the idea of whether they want one or not

i know that framerate is something that i am concerned with,when games like R6:V and darkness apparently suffer on the PS3...but i think i will still be getting my 3rd party games on the 360...achievements and online etc,unless there were somekind of extras on the PS3 version

but i am now looking forward to MGS4,FF13 and maybe Home.....and now i know that at least i wont miss out on these games

the 360 is a great console still(although the rings of death dont help),but like Denoginizer said,the Wii has still been a dissapointment to me,it has a lot of bells and whistles with the motion sensor,internet,weather etc....but if the games arent there then it isnt doing its job IMO


and i didnt know what SIDS is,so i googled it
